Day 3 and all is right with the world

Good morning to all!!! Its day 3 and the adventure continues. This is a great salad, and I have had a lot of success with this one at all of the places I have worked. Today we are making a southwest Asian steak salad. Quick tip of the day. When cooking steaks always make sure the grill is HOT, season with salt & pepper, and then place your steaks on the grill on a diagonal (think 2:00 o’clock) cook for about 90 seconds and then place the steaks at 10:00 o’clock. This will give you the desired cross marks, cook for another 90 seconds and flip, repeat process. When you see the top of the steaks start to get glossy or the juice start to pool, that is perfect medium rare. If medium rare is not for you keep them on the grill for another minute, this will give you medium, another minute will give you medium well and so on. And last but not least let the cooked steaks rest for 5 minutes before service. As always just have fun.
Thank you
