Low carb dinner recipe for Sirloin Steaks, topped with secret sauce
4 x 200g sirloin steaks
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tsp yellow mustard powder
1 tsp horseradish
200g green beans – trim ends
2 branches rosemary – strip leaves and chop finely
tin foil, butter, olive oil, salt & pepper (from your pantry)
Put a dry griddle/frying pan on high heat. On a chopping board rub both sides of each steak with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place steaks in hot pan and sear for 2 to 3 minutes either side for a medium steak, turning only once (using tongs/spoons). Adjust time to suit your preference. When done, remove and set aside on a plate covered with tin foil to rest for about 10 minutes.
Put a saucepan of lightly salted water onto boil. Add the greens beans and boil for about 4 minutes until tender but still a bit crunchy. Drain water away, return saucepan to the stove (turn the heat OFF). Add a knob or two of butter and the rosemary and allow to stand for a few minutes until the butter is melted.
To make the secret sauce, mix the following ingredients in a bowl: mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard powder and horseradish.
Using a very sharp knife, slice the steaks against the grain: this means cutting across (and not parallel to) the long parallel muscle fibres in the meat creating short fibres in each piece and delivering tender slices of meat.
To serve, divide the beans between the plates, top with the steak slices, a dollop of secret sauce and a twist of black pepper.
