I love a good steak! We have been told by the establishment that a heart healthy diet consists of low fat and low salt.
This is not necessarily the case. Simple carbohydrates such as potatoes, grains, bread, and desserts. These foods cause inflammation. When inflammation occurs in the arteries, it manifests as plaque.
This steak recipe is low-carb. A low-carb diet has been proven to help heart disease.
- Ribeye Steaks – I used boneless ribeye steaks, which is recommended because this allows them to cook more evenly (meat near the bone will cook more slowly, which can lead to overcooking other parts). The best steak will be 1.5 inches thick with a good amount of marbling. Ribeyes with a high level of marbling are tender and tasty after cooking.
- Sea Salt – Draws out the moisture, creating a dry brine that is then re-absorbed back into the steak to make it juicier and more tender.
- Black Pepper – For this ribeye steak recipe, use pure ground black pepper as it brings out the savory flavor of the meat.
- Avocado Oil – Restaurants commonly use canola oil to cook steak, but I prefer this oil instead. Use any high-heat cooking fat you like. I also like to use butter.
