Again last night a friend informed all of her Facebook friends that her young child had been given a piece of information at school indicating that red meat should be kept to a very minimum in the diet in order to stay healthy. I am SO happy that I know otherwise, and I would encourage you to check out one of the most recent studies giving me confidence to continue eating red meat regularly. The BOLD diet allows one to include beef in their menu every single day and achieve a more healthy cholesterol level! What? Really? Yes, my friends, you can confidently include beef in your diet every day and know you are doing your body good!
I recently fixed a recipe for my family from The Healthy Beef Cookbook & it was SO delicious that I want to share it with you. I think it only took 30 minutes or less to have supper on the table and ready to eat!
Tenderloin Steaks with Jalapeno Pepper Sauce
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse-grind black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Here are the spices ready to go on the steak:
4 beef tenderloin steaks (I used 2 big ones and we shared), cut 1 inch thick (about 4 oz each)
1/2 cup ready to use beef broth
1/4 cup balsamic or red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons jalapeno pepper jelly
1. Combine spice rub ingredients in small bowl; press evenly onto both sides of each beef steak. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 10 to 13 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness, turning once. Remove steaks; keep warm.
And in just a few short minutes, our meal was ready!
I hope you can enjoy some healthy beef, grown by farmers and ranchers who absolutely love what they get to do everyday to help put food on your table. 🙂
Interesting fact I learned yesterday: Nebraska farmers are responsible for putting food in one out of every four mouths in the U.S. ~I am proud to be a Nebraskan!
