Fabulous Steak & Frites Dinner!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I am trying out recipes from a new cookbook I got. Yep, it is another Cooking Light Cookbook. This one is called Fresh Food Fast 24/7. So far all the recipes have been very tasty and visually appealing. This Flank Steak dinner is now the top of the list. I heard things like- "this is the best dinner you have made...ever!" to "Wow! this is so good I want to eat it on a weekly basis!". Clearly everyone loved it. What I liked so much about it is that it is reminiscent of a French "Steak Frites". It has a sophisticated look and feel while being easy to prepare.

The Horseradish-Garlic Flank Steak was delicious and easy to assemble. I couldn't find the recipe on line so I am describing it here:

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish            4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tabespoon olive oil                                       1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon salt                                             Cooking Spray

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spread mixture onto both sides of steak.
3. Place steak on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill: let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces.)

I served it with a Lemony Arugula Salad (recipe also included on my blog) and Julienne Fries (my version mixes in russet potato). The calories for this meal is 494. A definite repeat.
