I adore grilled steak with blue cheese.
I don’t adore the calories of a big thick steak smothered in blue cheese, so I decided to scale it down a bit.
My alternative was a really good steak that was thinly sliced by the butcher and stuffed with good-for-you Swiss chard and just a bit of creamy blue cheese.
The result was a truly satisfying alternative to the pricey (both in calories and dollars) steak and blue cheese dish I would choose any day of the week at a favorite restaurant.
- 4 cups swiss chard, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon rosemary, minced
- 8 tablespoons blue cheese , crumbled
- 16 ounces beef steak, thinly sliced into 8 pieces
- grill seasoning
- Preheat grill to medium.
- Combine swiss chard and garlic in a bowl
- Take a slice of beef and lay it flat. Starting at the widest part of the steak place 1/8th of the swiss chard and 1 tablespoon blue cheese. Roll up to seal the chard and cheese in the middle.
- Sprinkle beef rolls with your favorite grill seasoning, or salt and pepper.
- Spray beef rolls with olive oil cooking spray.
- Place on grill and grill on one side for 3 - 4 minutes until lightly browned and then flip and grill another 3 - 4 minutes.
- Allow to rest for 5 minutes and serve.
What’s good for me in this dish?
Grass-fed beef is a bit pricier, but grain-fed cows tend to have more fat. The fat in grain-fed beef isn’t as high in those heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids that we all want in our diet for their blood pressure lowering, heart attack reducing benefits. Not to mention the fact that grass fed beef doesn’t contain residues of antibiotics used to keep disease away.
Lean beef is also a terrific source of protein. Protein is a fundamental part of every cell in your body. We use it for growth and also to repair our organs, skin, hair, and nails. In addition, protein is involved in the building of o 2000 ur bones, muscles and blood. Pretty important stuff! Just 3 or 4 ounces can provide a person with half a day’s requirement of this macronutrient.
