  • 1 Medium sized skillet
  • 1 Wooden spoon
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 Small bowl
  • 1 Chopping board
  • 1 Knife
  • Medium bowls for serving


  • 1 lb. ground beef (I used 93/7)
  • 1 tbsp steak seasoning
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 cups chopped romaine
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup pickle chips
  • ½ cup sliced red onion
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, reduced fat

Special Sauce Dressing

  • 2 tbsp light mayo
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • ½ tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp chopped pickles
  • 1 tsp pickle juice (from the pickle jar)
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika


  • Prep all your salad ingredients – chop the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc.
  • Make the beef. In a medium skillet, add beef and steak seasoning. Cook on medium heat until browned, breaking into pieces as you go. When done, remove from heat and stir in Worcheshire sauce and Dijon mustard.
  • While the beef cooks, make the special sauce. Add the mayo, ketchup, mustard, pickles, pickle juice, garlic powder, and paprika to a small bowl jar and stir to combine.
  • Once ready to assemble bowls, divide the lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, cheese, and ground beef between 4 medium bowls. Top with special sauce and enjoy!
