I made some delicious steak a few nights ago and just have to share.
I used these frozen sirloin filets from Aldi. They were $5.60 per pound, which is not cheap but it’s much less expensive than you would usually pay for this cut of beef.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from frozen steaks. Maybe a connoisseur would find fault with the texture or something, but Pat and I both thought they tasted great!
I defrosted them on the kitchen counter (I like to live dangerously). Then I seared them in a pan on the stove on medium-high heat for a few minutes on each side. Then I broiled them in the oven. Our broiler has “high” and “low” settings. I used low because I’ve set things on fire before using high. I don’t remember how long I broiled them, but they ended up medium-well, which I like.
I sautéed some fresh onion and mushroom in the pan with the steak drippings, adding some coconut oil, water, salt, and pepper.
Aaaand, wouldn’t you know, just as I’m planning to write this post I read about how U.S. beef is all horrible and stuff (prior link didn’t work; sorry about that). Anyway . . . if you can’t eat organic, grass-fed beef all the time, and you want some good but inexpensive steak . . . try the frozen sirloin filet from Aldi.
