morning. sticking with trying to still looking for healthy recipes and want to keep some new year''weight off, maybe you are tired of whatever you've been eating lately, steak is a great salad topper that people i think forget about a lot of times. yeah, a lot of people am goiing to run through the ingredients with you on how i cooked my stea. i did broil it,
8:45 am
months, and it turned out just as great. i know that can be a downfall, a lot of people don't eat as much steak in the winter time because u can't grill... is about t to pounds, iiid a pound yesterday and it took about 10 minutes total. if you start with about syx minutes per side if you are using a big two and that does not make it any tougher it is still perfect. but what you want to make sure is that this piece of meat has a nice strong grain running this way, when you slice it, you way, you are going to spend your d, which we are so lacking here have sooe green onionnand also some barley. i like adding grains to my salad, it's so much more filling and your getting fiber and whole grains from that a heartier texture. yes, great source of fiber, so just another could make that would work great toss it back to lauren.
8:46 am
to your dinner if you don't want just plain protein and vegetables. so sprinkle some in there, you don't have to have a lot, a little goes a long way, and i think it adds a lot to the salad. so this is just a really simple, any weight loss or new year's resolution plan. and a nice way to mix it up and try something different. and if you haven't had beef in a while because you can't get to the grill this is a good alternative. thanks so much whitney, certaiily good advice, we'll put this online, and we'll toss it back to lauren.
