A POOR EXCUSE FOR STEAK

MY HUSBAND STARTED DOING SOME GROCERY SHOPPING AND FOUND THESE DELICIOUS LOOKING STEAKS – 6 (6OZ) STEAKS FOR $12.  WHAT SOLD HIM WAS THAT THERE ARE ONLY 3 GMS OF FAT PER STEAK COMPARED TO 20-25 GMS IN A TYPICAL NEW YORK STRIP STEAK.  WE ARE WATCHING OUR FAT AND CHOLESTEROL SO THOUGHT IT WAS WORTH A TRY.

WHEN I OPENED THE PACKAGE I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND 6 INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED STEAKS THAT WERE ABOUT THE THICKNESS OF A TILAPIA FILET (MAYBE 1/4 INCH THICK)!  COOKED ON THE GRILL FOR 2 MINUTES A SIDE AS DIRECTED WAS STILL RATHER RAW SO MY HUSBAND COOKED SOME MORE.  THEY HAD LOTS OF GRISTLE AND SOME FAT YOU COULD CUT OFF.  THEY ARE DEFINITELY NOT WORTH TRYING.

THE NEXT 2 I WILL SERVE WITH A GREEK QUINOA SALAD AND TRY ON THE GEORGE FORMAN GRILL.  THE LAST 2 I WILL HAVE WITH BLACK BEAN SALSA AND HAVE THEM SOAK IN THE SALSA SOME SO THE TOMATOES CAN WORK ON THE TOUGH MEAT.

SORRY TWO THUMBS DOWN FOR THESE “STEAKS”!!!
