Simple Steak

Steak by ulrik on www.sxc.huMany readers are asking for more delicious ideas for meat recipes and this is the first one to come to mind because it’s my absolute favorite. It’s so simple, yet utterly delicious and satisfying. I’m really not one to make recipes over and over again because I love diversity too much, but I have to admit making this several times in the past few months.

It’s original recipe describes it as being steak prepared in the French way, which is cooked rare to medium done. I prefer my meat thoroughly cooked, so if you follow the meat size and cooking instructions called for in my recipe, it should have no problem thoroughly cooking in just 15 minutes.

How’s that for dinner? Especially in the last ten days of Ramadan, this couldn’t be more perfect for iftar…or suhoor- if you have a stomach of steel that early in the morning…

This recipe and a couple more were recently published on the blog productivemuslim.com where I wrote an entitled “Eat Right and Feel Great During Ramadan”. Check it out here.

  1. now this I’ll make for sure!!! I love Steak and even though I shouldn’t I’m a sucker for Red meat =)

    This is easy and the potatoe wedges are too. Besides it’s a oven cooked meal so it’ll help keep the apt even extra toasty while I cook it. JazakAllah Khayer for sharing ♥ it
