Ingredient of the week: Steak
As much as steak may have a bad reputation going round, it still remains one of the most versatile foods and staple meals in most homes.
From juicy grilled steak, to boiled soft steak (tumbukiza) and finally the perfect stew, you can never go wrong with a steak dish satisfying your palette.
And if you don’t take beef then you probably don’t know what you are missing, but if you do take beef, you definitely know how luscious these dishes can be.
Better still, other than the versatility in the dishes, steak does not take forever to prepare not unless you are going for a brisket, which still isn’t up to you to watch it prepare.
That being said, it is important to know that steak is not all about the juice but the nutrients as well. And here are but a few benefits of taking steak:
Your body needs muscle, we can all agree with that and the fastest way to gain this is through taking some beef. If you work out, you definitely need to add some steak to your diet.
Steak will also provide you with iron and essential vitamins which boost your immune system. Your body needs iron to help it transport oxygen all round, in return this reduces unnecessary fatigue.
If you need your hair and nails to grow and your skin to glow, then you should know that steak is rich in zinc that will support this growth.
However, like everything else, steak needs to be eaten with moderation. Our bodies may need the protein but too much of it becomes poison.
