A little bit of red meat doesn’t hurt, so to class up the original ‘Steak and Chips’ I decided to put my Duckey stamp on this dish and create a healthy alternative. Red meat is really good for iron so great for people who may have a slight iron deficiency.
I dont' see antyhing wrong with a steak every now and then in moderation. Always buy quality meat, London broil and other cuts of beef are filled with the amino acid LEUCINE, which helps you whittle your waistline without sacrificing muscle tissue.
I would always recommend grilling your Steak preferably in a George Foreman… it gets rid of a lot of the fat content!
RECIPE: Healthy grilled Steak topped with roasted mushrooms, served with couscous stuffed pepper topped with melted mature cheese and fresh seasonal vegetables
You will need:
2 Red bell peppers
1. Cut the tops of the peppers, remove the seeds and wash (keep the tops for presentation)
2. Pre-heat the grill for the Steaks and the oven for the peppers
3. Roast the peppers for around 20 minutes after 15 add the mushrooms
4. Boil the vegetables in a saucepan
5. In a bowl add hot water to the couscous and cover with cling film leave to sit for 5-10 minutes
6. Add the Steak to the grill and cook to your taste I like mine medium
7. Cook on both sides then serve on a plate
8. Top the Steaks with the cooked mushrooms
9. Stuff the roasted peppers with the couscous and top with cheese put back in the oven until cheese has melted and top with some dill
10. You can add the pepper top at this stage for presentation
11 Serve the cooked vegetables on the side.
Now you can sit down and enjoy your healthy version of Steak minus the fat and chips!
