1. Preheat the broiler. Season the steaks well with salt and pepper. Broil on a broiler plate or tray, 4 inches fro the heat source, for 4 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the other side, for medium-rare. Cool to room temperature. Cut the steaks crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices, then cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Makes about 4 cups.
2. Arrange all of the ingredients into even rows crosswise on a large oval or rectangular platter (about 15x9 inches), in this order: lettuce, tomatoes, steak, avocados, bacon, blue cheese and chopped egg. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with vinaigrette alongside.
