Season steak generously with salt and black pepper. Preheat a large griddle pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and melt.

Set aside.

Assemble salads by layering sliced sirloin, cherry tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese and figs on 4 iceberg salad wedges. Drizzle with the warm honey fig blue cheese dressing and garnish with fresh parsley.
