I don't often eat steak. Probably because I always end up overcooking it. I didn't this time though!
Yay! (I used a meat thermometer this time)
It was tender and I absolutely loved it with the mustard yogurt sauce I came up with. The huge mound of zucchini chips on the side were an added bonus.
A large, delicious, healthy, fairly easy dinner in about 40 minutes for under 400 calories.
I can't wait to try the sauce on chicken (or fish).
Steak with Mustard & Greek Yogurt Sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
salt & pepper
2 tsp cornstarch
7 Tbsp milk
2 tsp prepared mustard
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt, plain
1 clove garlic, minced
2 X 5 oz Eye Of Round Steaks, cooked to preferred stage
In a small saucepan, whisk together dry mustard, salt & pepper, and cornstarch. Place over medium heat and gradually whisk in milk. Stir and cook until thickened.
Remove from heat and whisk in prepared mustard, Greek yogurt, and garlic.
Serve warm over cooked steak.
And for the zucchini chips:
Baked Zucchini Chips
1 medium zucchini
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Panko crumbs
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Slice the zucchini into about 1/4 inch slices. Toss in a bowl with the beaten egg white until all pieces are well coated.
In a shallow bowl or baking dish, mix together Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and spices.
Take the zucchini slices, one at a time, and toss in the crumbs - making sure to coat each side. Place on cookie sheet in a single layer.
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Flip each slice over and bake a further 10 - 12 minutes, until nicely browned and crispy.
According to Myfitnesspal the nutritional breakdown is:
Per 5 oz steak and 1/2 of sauce: 230 calories, 6 carbs, 14 fat, 33 protein
Per entire recipe of zucchini chips: 165 calories, 22 carbs, 3 fat, 12 protein.
That's like 395 calories!!
Plus, trust me when I say, if you eat a whole zucchini you will be full - let alone a whole zucchini AND a steak smothered in sauce.
