for Tri-Tip Steak. When you think of eating healthy, most people
don’t think of beef steak. But, sometimes you just can’t help yourself
and then it’s time for a lean cut of steak (especially if you follow the Paleo way of
eating). Tri-tip steak is an inexpensive cut of steak
that is cut from the bottom part of the sirloin roast. Sirloin steak has only a moderate amount of
total fat with very little of it saturated fat which makes it a more healthy cut of meat. A typical 3-ounce serving contains 8 grams
of total fat, of which 3 to 4 grams are saturated. In comparison, 3 ounces of t-bone steak contain
14 grams of total fat, which is almost double that of a sirloin cut. Since, saturated fat is the type that leads
to elevated cholesterol levels and known to raise your risk for heart disease, choosing
sirloin for your indulgence of a steak meal, is the way to go. This no-fuss, quick and easy tri-tip steak
recipe that comes together in less than 20 minutes, so it is ideal for a busy and healthy
weeknight meal. Prep time: 5 minutes. Cooking time: 10-12 minutes. Serves 4 to 6. Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons extra virgin oil. 1 Tablespoon kosher salt. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. 2 teaspoons garlic powder or chopped fresh
garlic. 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely
chopped. 2 pounds tri-tip steak, approximately 1 inch
thick. Directions: Heat the olive oil in a large
cast iron or other heavy-duty skillet over medium-high heat. Combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and
rosemary in a small bowl. Rub the salt mixture on all sides of the steak
and place in the hot skillet. Sear steak on both sides, approximately 2
minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking
the steaks for another 6 to 8 minutes, turning once to cook evenly on each side. This will yield medium-rare to medium steaks
with an internal temperature of 145° to 160° Fahrenheit. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes for more well
done steaks. (For thinner steaks, reduce cooking time by
3 to 5 minutes). Remove steaks from skillet and loosely cover. Rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. To serve, cut steaks in thin slices against
the grain for more tender results. Serve with lightly steamed or roasted asparagus
stalks along with a few roasted, whole cherry tomatoes for a quick, healthy meal.
