There Red meat? Consume it once a week. But enough with the feta always the same! Here are three sophisticated recipes for gourmet steaks, with one eye on flavor and one on health.

  • Grilled steak, with shallots, ginger and sesame – Recipe

290747Materials for 4 people: 600 g of “spider” beef (a few steaks of 300 g each), 6 shallots, 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger, 1 tablespoon of white sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon of black sesame seeds, 40 grams of butter, 1 bunch of thyme, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper

Melt the butter in a pan and saute the cleaned and chopped shallots with the ginger and a pinch of salt. Add a few tablespoons of water if needed and cook until very soft.
Remove the sauce and set aside, then pour a couple of tablespoons of oil into the same pan and sear the steaks for a minute on each side. Transfer them to a tray, season with salt and pepper, cover them with the sauce and put them in the oven at 200°C for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a non-stick pan, then spread over the meat after removing it from the oven. Garnish the steaks with a few thyme leaves and then serve them with a salad.

Long live the tricolor

The red of meat cooked rare, the green of shallot, the white of ginger and sesame… Hymn to the Italian flag? No, a protein recipe that combines the digestive properties of ginger with the diuretic properties of shallot.

  • Steak with cashew and curry sauce

290746Materials for 4 people: 4 king steaks (150g each), 80g cashews, 1/2 clove garlic, 1 teaspoon curry powder, 1 sprig rosemary, 1 bay leaf, 1 small avocado, 1/2 red apple, 1 sprig fresh coriander, 1/2 lime, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper

Soak the cashews in water at room temperature for at least a couple of hours and then mix them with the garlic, a pinch of salt, the curry toasted for a few moments in a small unseasoned pan and enough water to make a sauce that is not too liquid (you will need a small glass). Take the pulp of the avocado and cut it into cubes. wash the apple and cut it in the same way. Mix the avocado and the apple in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, a few drops of lime, a little oil and the chopped cilantro and let them flavor. Make a small bunch of rosemary and bay leaves and use it to brush the meat with a little oil. Sear the steaks for one minute in a cast iron pan (retains the heat), then transfer them under the rack of a hot oven and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Arrange the steaks on plates and top with the curry sauce, avocado and apple salad. Salt, pepper and serve.

A triumph of aromatic herbs and spices

Curry is anti-inflammatory thanks to the presence of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric. Thyme, rosemary and coriander turbocharge digestion. Cashews provide “good” fats, excellent in combination with meat proteins.

  • Steak in puccia with turnips, sardines and walnut sauce

290748Materials for 4 people: 600 g beef patty, 4 “pucce” sandwiches or others of your choice, 400 g turnips, 4 smoked sardines, 50 g walnuts, 1/2 clove of garlic, 2 slices of bread, 50 ml milk, 50 ml cognac, extra virgin olive oil , chili pepper, salt and pepper

Marinate the meat for 2 hours in an emulsion made with 4 tablespoonfuls of oil, brandy, and two crushed peppercorns: keep cool. Blanch the walnuts, a few at a time, for a few moments in boiling water and remove the skin. Transfer them to the mixer with the chopped bread soaked in a little water, garlic, milk, a couple of spoons of oil, a pinch of salt and a little pepper. Mix until you have a sauce and set aside. Wash the turnips and blanch them in salted water, drain and squeeze them a little and sauté them in a pan with a little oil and a pinch of chili pepper, then keep them warm. Cut the piece in half, brush them with very little oil and toast them for a few minutes in a hot pan. Drain the meat from the marinade and cook it for a few minutes on the hot plate, basting it with a little marinade on both sides. Salt it and cut it into slices, across the grain. Place a sardine boned and cut into small pieces in each bag, some turnip and finally the slices of meat. Finish with a spoonful of prepared walnut sauce and a grind of pepper.
