As some of you have probably noticed I have not posted in a few weeks. Some of you may have come to the sad conclusion that something was wrong. Yes it is so, my beloved Troop, Betty Boop has passed away. It happened a few weeks ago and I just needed some time to breathe. She went quickly and in my arms as I said goodbye to my sweet wonderful friend. I thank you all for your kind words and prayers. She was an awesome dog and a better friend.
I have written previously that in her last months she ate like a Queen. Her favorite meal being a juicy well seasoned Filet Mignon. Her eyes would light up as the smell would take over the apartment. Towards the end though she really wasn’t very interested in food. Except when would I sit next to her on the floor to share her steak she’d have a few bites as if to say “thank you”. Then I thought what better recipe could I share! It’s simple, savory, and should absolutely be shared with someone YOU love.
My other Troop, Mr Beans is finally getting over the loss as well. He is ready to get back to our mission of bringing you delicious nutritious recipes and all the best information for your health.
We thank you, send you love and of course MUCH MUCH HEALTH.
Betty Boop Steak
preheat oven to 350*
Salt and pepper
1. You want the piece(s) of meat at room temperature.
2. Season with salt and pepper on both sides, take olive oil and brush over steak.
3. Make frying pan nice and hot with olive oil and even a dab of butter or Earth Balance. The heat of pan should be high enough so that if you splash some water on pan it sizzles. You can use a grill pan or a fry pan and put the steak down when hot enough.
4. The thickness of each steak will determine when and how often you turn it – you don’t want to turn it too much. You want to let it get a nice crispy outside, sear it. 2-3 minutes on each side (depending on thickness).
5. Then pop steak in oven for about 5 minutes and after you take it out let it sit for few minutes to let juices marinade. You can cut up some ripe plum tomatoes to put on top of the steak with some added olive oil and salt and pepper. Another great option is to slice the steak (on chopping block) against the grain of meat and put over some fresh spinach, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. YUM!!!!
