Juicy Rosemary Steak

Ingredients

  • Steak (1 piece)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
  • Rosemary (2 tsp)
  • Sea Salt (pinch)
  • Pepper (pinch)

Method

  1. Bring the steak to room temperature before cooking (should take about an hour from being refridgerated).

  2. Rub a thin layer of olive oil, salt and pepper over the steak.

  3. Place in a hot pan and sprinkle half the rosemary over the top. After 1 minute flip the steak and sprinkle rosemary over the other side.

  4. Continue to flip the steak every minute until it is cooked to your liking. (6 minutes was a perfect medium rare for me!)

  5. Put the steak on a plate to collect the juices for a minute or two. Place on your serving plate and pour the collected juices over the top. Serve with your favourite side dishes and enjoy!

How this recipe promotes a healthy gut

Red meat is so good for us, but in moderation. A good rule of thumb to follow is only to have 2-3 servings of red meat per week, and if you can, try not to make it your chosen meat for dinner. It takes a lot of work for your digestive system to break down red meat, therefore by choosing a lighter meat at dinner (e.g. a nice lean chicken breast) you're helping your body to get a better night's sleep as your digestive system and metabolism wont be working as hard.
