This is one of my new absolute favourite things to eat. Seared steak with broccoli rice is the perfect speedy, delicious and nutritious meal. Ready in the blink of an eye, and so good you won’t believe it was so easy!
You may well have heard of cauliflower ‘rice’…well let me introduce you to my broccoli ‘rice’. Broccoli is bursting with goodness, and is the perfect accompaniment to the seared steak.
Having had a completely gluttonous week last week, this is just the sort of thing I need right now. If you’ve over indulged slightly, don’t panic! Life is for living and as long as you had a good time, then just write it up as a bloomin’ good time and now try to get back on track. Make sure you drink lots of water, and try to fill up on lots of veggies and protein. Do this for three days in a row and you won’t believe how much better you feel! Once you notice how much better you feel, it will be easier to keep it going! We can do this!
This steak and broccoli dish is easy enough to make for yourself, and special enough to whip up for someone else!
- ½ head of a large broccoli, or one whole smallish one
- 1 sirloin steak
- 1 clove garlic
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- Glug of olive oil
- Simply whizz the broccoli up in a food processor. Ta dah! You’ve made broccoli rice!
- Then, take a large frying pan and heat a little glug of olive oil. Tip the broccoli rice into the pan and cook just for a minute or so until it has softened slightly, season with salt and pepper. Scoop onto your serving plate.
- Wipe the pan. Season the steak with salt and pepper and a good glug of olive oil. Place in the searing hot pan and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steak and how well done you like it.
- Remove the steak from the heat and allow to rest.
- Add another glug of olive oil to the pan and then add the cherry tomatoes to the hot pan and cook for a minute or so until they just begin to burst. Season and then add the crushed garlic and cook for twenty seconds or so.
- Slice the rested steak and add to the broccoli rice, then drizzle the whole lots with the garlicky tomatoes and their delicious juices.
- Complete and utter heaven.
