13 Healthy Steak Recipes

by in Healthy Recipes, June 15, 2013


In my house, we always grill steaks for dad on Father’s Day. The secrets to making a steak dinner a healthy one are simple: it’s all a matter of buying the right cuts of beef and making sure portions aren’t outrageous.

Healthier Cuts
Lighter cuts of beef include flank steak, top loin, sirloin, T-bone, filet mignon, and tenderloin. Trim off any visible fat before adding your marinade or rub. Grilling your steak will also allow even more fat to drip off.

Aim for 6-ounces of raw steak and get rid of that bottled sauce. Flavor the steak using fresh herbs, spices, fruits, veggies and other wholesome ingredients. Make a batch of Dana’s Spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning and send the other dads home with their own jar.

    I tend to prefer a rib eye in most cases, especially if I am going for USDA Select. Typically, I really, really try to get USDA Choice as a good compromise between cost and flavor – always opposing forces. A few times a year, I will get a whole tenderloin roast, rib roast, or strip roast since you can get it for cheaper. Then, I'll cut it up on my own, vacuum seal it, and make some ground beef with the trimmings. Best ground beef ever. :) Anyway, here is a steak recipe that I recommend: http://wagnercastironskillet.com/cast-iron-steak/
