good to see you whitney." "good to see you." " s- "and what do we have on the menu this week?"- "we are making a steak and barley salad, so this is kind of good for everyone, but really geared toward those of you who made that resolution to lose weight. you're a little bored, you're maybe thinking about jumping off the bandwagon and, you know, giving up on everything cuz about this time, most people kind of give up on their resolutions, so maybe this is something to kind of shake up your dinner, um, to keep you toward that weight loss." s- "cuz maybe you're having a lot of chicken, so maybe you nt to mix things up with a little beef." w- "yes. and i, i love steak, i'm a huge steak eater, and a lot of people don't think about topping a salad with steak. i just find a lot of people, they think salad, they think chicken, so we are going to make it with a flank steak today, and i have added barley to it, which if you have never made barley, i use a quick cooking one, it takes like 10 minutes. it's a really good way to kind of bulk up your salad. if you want to stretch your dollar a little bit, i also added mushrooms, that's a nice way to also stretch your dollar a little bit more." s- "oh yeah it does have some protein in there." w- "yeah, you get a little
5:17 pm
fiber, too. so i think that's just a nice way to make your salad just a little bit more satisfying. so, for the steak part of it, um, i know we probably don't want to go outside to our grill right now, so i'm broiling a flank steak, and flank steaks work perfect to broil. you can't throw just any steak under the broiler. some just don't work very well. but this is what a flank steak looks like. in total, this is only going to take 10 to 11 minutes broiled on high. so i usually season it, put it in there for about 6 minutes on the first side, flip it over, 5 more minutes and you're done.what you want to make sure you're doing is letting it rest for a couple of minutes before you slice it and put it on your salad. and you'll notice that this piece of meat, it has a very strong grain running vertically through it, so when you go to slice it, make sure you're cutting across the grain this way, and that's actually what you want to do with any piece of meat, is cut across the grain, not with the grain, otherwise what you're going to end up doing is spending half of your dinner time chewing, and trying to pull it out of your teeth exactly. so you want to always slice against the grain, and that's why this piece works so perfectly for broiling, because it doesn't seize up a

under the broiler, so it stays nice and tender, and then when you can cut it across that grain, it makes it even more tender. so, we've heard that a lot from our meat experts that we've had on, and this is the perfect cut for that." s- "is it hard to find that cut?" w- "it is n-, i have not had a hard time finding this cut. my store carries it all the time. if you can't find it, just ask your meat experts for it, and they can be able to go cut one for you, or yeah they can maybe locate one for you, maybe go back the next day and get it. they're more than happy to help you find it, but it is one of my favorite cuts of meat, especially in the winter cuz, like i said, it works perfect under the broiler and you don't have to go outside." s- "and it's good and lean." w- "yes, it's a nice, lean protein source for you." s- "have you been keeping up on your resolutions?" w- "you know, i actually didn't make any." s- "see, that's what you need to do, right?" w- "i actually didn't make any, but for those of you that did, i hope you're still going strong." s- "alright, well thank you whitney. if you'd like more information about today's centsable health, or any centsable health topic, go to k-t-i-v dot com and just look for the news link."
