So, you are trying your best to be healthy but you are craving for a big juicy steak. Beef is not the enemy while dieting and you can still have your steak and potatoes dinner once in awhile, only with a smaller serving of meat and cauliflower wearing a mashed potato costume.
When I get my mid-week carnivorous cravings, I more often than not give in, and no lean cuts either, I go full on rib eye, but I don't go overboard. I have about 3 oz of meat at probably around 200 calories and rub it with mustard, salt and pepper before pan frying with no oil. When the beef fat comes out, I add some garlic and sage for extra flavor. I already posted my steak recipe before ( http://www.fatkitch-skinnykitch.com/2014/07/steak-soulfoodsaturday.html) just minus the butter out of the equation for a healthier option, so today I'll share my cauliflower mash recipe for lower carb content and less calories with your steak meal, because who can have a steak or a roast without mashed potatoes?
1 head cauliflower, hard part removed and cut into little florets
pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons parmesan cheese
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Blanch cauliflower and pat dry.
- While still hot, put in a food processor with all other ingredients.
- Pulse until creamy. If too dry, add more yogurt.
