Post your answer: How do you like your steak?
Joren and I like it rare/raw. Lucky us because we were able to share a 9oz. New York strip I bought at the Old Cheney Farmer’s Market today.
Grass-fed was delicious and nutritious. You can tell it’s lean, just a bit tough so I wouldn’t recommend well-done. The flavors we’re earthy, complex and savory. I felt different after the meal as well, not the same tired feeling after big meals. My goal this fall is to eat plenty of lean proteins, vegetables, and fruits. Starches have been weighing me down and I feel more out of control when I’m eating them.
Anyone agree? Ever felt binge-y with crackers, bread, pasta, or rice? I never feel that way with chicken or salmon, not even my favorite asparagus or salad.
Anywho… The green beans with shrimp were a good pair, surprisingly. The sauce from that dish went very well with the steak and we had our favorite wine with the meal. Oh! I also made us a tomato salad. Chopped tomatoes with fresh basil, parsley, yellow hot pepper, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pepper and sea salt. I know what a snob… sea salt? Don’t judge me.
