Fresh lean beef is rich in various vitamins and minerals, especially zinc, and is recommended as part of a healthy diet.
Beef is an excellent source of protein which helps maintain muscle. Beef contains higher amounts of iron than chicken or fish.
Limit red meat intake to 2-3 servings a week and choose lean sources such as round, sirloin or tenderloin steak or lean roasts. A serving of meat is 3 ounces cooked meat.
Olive oil is the best oil to use in cooking, it contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants!
Yield: 6 servings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pounds round steak -- thinly sliced
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 pound mushrooms – sliced
2 stalks celery stalk – finely chopped
2 carrots – shredded
Salt and pepper – to taste
1 tablespoon flour
32 ounces low sodium beef broth
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt – Greek-style
Brown meat in a large electric skillet or on the stove with the oil over med-high heat.
When the meat is nicely browned, add the onion, garlic, celery, carrot and mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms release their moisture and the onions are soft (5-6 minutes). Season with salt and pepper.
Add the flour, cook for a minute and then add beef broth and bring to a boil. Simmer 1½ - 2 hours, uncovered, adding more broth or water to keep the meat covered at all times.
Right before serving, adjust seasonings and fold in yogurt.
