Southwestern Steak Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Southwestern Steak which belongs to the Beef recipe category.
- 1 to 2 pounds (680 to 910 g) well-marbled steak (sirloin, rib eye, or
- the like), 1 to 1 inches (2.5 to 3 cm) thick
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Rub a couple of teaspoons of olive oil on either side of the steak.
Arrange your broiler so you can get the steak so close that it's almost but not quite touching the broiling element.
(I have to put my broiler pan on top of a skillet turned upside down to do this.
) Turn the broiler to high and get that steak in there.
Leave the oven door open?this is crucial.
For a 1-inch (2.
5- cm) thick steak, set the oven timer for 5 to 5 minutes; for a 1-inch (3-cm) thick steak, you can go up to 6 minutes.
When the timer beeps, quickly flip the steak, and set the timer again.
Check at this point to see if your time seems right.
If you like your steak a lot rarer or more well-done than I do or if you have a different brand of broiler, you may need to adjust how long you broil the second side for.
When the timer goes off again, get that steak out of there quickly and put it on a serving plate.
Spread each serving of steak with a heaping tablespoon of guacamole and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
The number of servings will depend on the size of your steak
The guacamole will add 4 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber, for a total of 3 grams of usable carbs. You'll also get 275 milligrams of potassium.
