Remove steaks from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut each steak into thin slices. Place 2 cups lettuce on each of 2 large plates. Sprinkle each salad with 1/4 cup onion slices. Arrange 4 tomato quarters around edge of each salad. Place 1 sliced steak in center of each salad; drizzle dressing evenly over salads, and sprinkle with pepper.
