    Steak Dinner (Keto, Paleo, Whole 30)


    Now that I have a little more time, I’m beginning to explore and learn more about my Anova sous vide machine. I’m growing quite fond of it, but the wait is sometimes a slow torture. The saying “Good things come to those who wait” applies adequately like this.  Don’t worry if you do not have a SV machine, just cook it on the pan using the timing given on the chart below.

    Use the finger test to help you test for your desired done-ness.

    My Mr Kay-husband has mentioned to me about wanting a piece of steak. Being the cheapskate prudent wife that I am, I bought a whole slab of meat and portioned it out for the family. Seized the chance to pull out my SV machine as well. The turn out for the dinner was amazing! Delicious steak, just the way we like it. Everyone at home, including my helper and very picky kid loved it. 

    The grilled beefsteak tomatoes were sweet, savoury, and extremely juicy. If you have not had grilled tomatoes before, you should. My favourite part of the dinner was that chimichurri sauce, I was trying so hard not to eat it by the spoonful. So. Freaking. Good. 

    Remember, if you are eating Keto or LCHF, adjust the recipe to fit your macros. I’d suggest eating only 1/2 of the beefsteak tomato. I’ve attached the nutritional breakdown to the bottom of this post.
