Grilled Steak

Grilled Steak

I love a nicely grilled steak. Who doesn’t? I’ve been trying to keep my red meat intake at a low level lately because I tend to feel full for a long period of time after eating it. Did you know that red meat is harder for humans to digest?

So I’ve been on what the grocery stores call a “wafer thin” steak kick lately. It’s thin, but it still has all of the amazing flavors of a steak. Not as juicy, but better for you, and a lot cheaper than the thicker cut.

Steak Ingredients with words copyWhen you’re cooking steak, or any protein for that matter, you want to make sure to bring the meat to room temperature for cooking. This ensures even cooking throughout. So I left this piece of meat which is only about 1 inch thick, out for 45 minutes and dried it thoroughly with paper towels.

Then I seasoned it with sea salt, pepper, and smoked paprika to taste. Be generous, but not too generous on the salt because this thin cut seems to soak up the salt more easily.

You’ll want to preheat your grill to 425 and if you’re using a grill pan, turn the stove on high and wait for it to smoke.

Cook for 2 minutes then rotate to get the nice grill marks and cook for another minute, flip and do the same on the other side. This thin piece of meat doesn’t really allow you a medium rare, but since it’s so thin a medium – medium well is still pretty juicy.Steak Done

I was also on the hunt for a good bottle of wine while I was at Gelson’s, and since I was a nice and juicy grilled steak…this bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon really caught my eye.

Carnivor WineLuckily, the wine is actually pretty good, and at only $12 a bottle… I think I won this random pick! Then you’re done! I topped the steak with a grilled green onion because…they’re delicious…and my lemon juice came into play at the end. I squeezed two halves on each side of the steak at the end!
