- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 6 cups romaine lettuce chopped
- 1 small red onion
- 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded

Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high, and once hot add the beef. Breaking it with a spoon, cook it for 4-5 minutes, until browned.
Add the onion, salt, and pepper and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until the onion is softened. The beef should look browned and slightly crispy.

Add the lettuce to a large bowl, top with the browned beef, red onion, cheddar cheese, tomato, and pickles.
Drizzle the big mac sauce on top and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
