The most tender parts of the animal are sourced for steak which is why beautifully grilled juicy tenderloin remains one of life's pleasures. Aside from cooking through grilling, steak can also be pan-fried. Steak is cooked quickly, one side first then the other, until the desired texture is reached. Bring out the serrated knives and let the family enjoy it with mashed potatoes, rice, pasta, salad or stir-fried vegetables.
The many beef cuts for steak available are: T-Bone, Porterhouse, Rib-Eye, Tenderloin, New York Steak, Flank Steak, Sirloin Steak, Breakfast Steak, Filipino Beef Steak. Since the steak cuts are easily available, you can experiment more by deciding to marinate the beef this week (you can concoct your own or buy ready marinade from the grocery), or you can rub a mix of herbs and spices on it before cooking. Or you can skewer the beef with vegetables, kebab-style. You and your family can try a variety of side dishes to complement your steak, or putter about in the kitchen perfecting the gravy.
Beef provides a portion of the recommended daily value of certain nutrients: protein that builds, maintains and repairs body tissues; thiamin, which maintains appetite and growth; riboflavin for energy and metabolism, vitamin B6 that helps red blood cells carry oxygen to all parts of the body; vitamin B12 to maintain a healthy nervous system; niacin for normal digestion and healthy skin; phosphorous for healthy bones and teeth; fats which provide energy and helps satisfy our appetite; and zinc that promotes normal growth and body development.
