Friday Night Feast

Day 287 in my becoming healthier to meet up with Mickey in October

My plan for today in eating healthier was to try out a new recipe.  I turned to my current favorite cookbook Betty Crocker 30 Minute Meals for Diabetes.  I decided to try Steak Marsala .

Prep time: 20 minutes  Start to finish: 20 minutes  4 servings  Carbohydrate choices 0

Ingredients:

  1. 4 beef tenderloin steaks, 3/4 inch think (about one pound)
  2. 1/2 tsp salt
  3. 1/4 tsp pepper
  4. 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  5. 1 Tbs drained capers
  6. 1/2 cup Marsala wine or nonalcoholic wine

Directions:

  1. Sprinkle both sides of each beef steak with salt and pepper.  Rub with garlic.  Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat.  Add beef; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until desired doneness.  Remove beef from skillet; cover and keep warm.
  2. Add capers and wine to skillet.  Heat to boiling over high heat.  Cook uncovered 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is slightly reduced.  Serve over beef.

It was delicious!  Like close-your-eyes so you can really appreciate the taste and texture delicious!  There is a bit of sticker shock on this though.  I ended up paying $28 for the steaks.  I justified it by realizing that it is four steak dinners for the price.  I had a small leftover baked potato in the refrigerator, which I fried up.  Then I made us each a large romaine, green pepper, yellow pepper and broccoli salad.  Mike topped it off with rye bread and butter.  Tonight we feasted like royalty!

Meet you at the Kingdom!
