Low Carb with Attitude: Grilled Steak & Setas Salad
The last few weeks have involved fried food of all nations and lots of ice cream. It was fun, but I am ready to go ” healthier”. I am not a hard core dieter so I go for more grilled meats and adding more fresh stuff to the menu.
I love steak because it feels like a real meal and a little goes a long way. You can make a great salad with half of the amount of steak and be really satisfied. Adding the setas (mushrooms) makes it feel special and adds nutrition.
Step 1: I started with marinating about 8 mushrooms in 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp soy sauce, 1 garlic clove and any herbs i found in the garden (basil, chives and a bay leaves). Use whatever mushrooms you are into. I used shitakes but this works great with any type of mushrooms.
Step 2: I then tossed the 2 steaks in a tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp salt. 1/2 tsp pepper and 1 tsp garlic powder. I used rib eye thinly sliced so that the steaks cook fast.
Step 3: Grill mushrooms for about 5 minutes and steaks for about 10 minutes (flip over at least once 1/2 way thru). Leave herbs and marinade for mushrooms in a bowl. Put mushrooms back in their marinade after cooked and add another 2 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp of balsamic. Cut steak in strips and add to the marinade.
Step 4: Chop about 5 cups of romaine, 1 cucumber and toss in marinade with steak and mushrooms. Serves about 4.
Not exactly dietetic but a nice way to have a healthy but tasty dinner!
