Hardcore Hobbit: Delicious Steak

Meaty!! Hurray for agility stats! Hehe, so, in the game delicious steak is made from a flank of beef, golden shire taters and fine seasonings. My husband and I talked about how you can get agility from steak, we decided that giving it a bit of kick was the solution. I firmly believe that in order to be delicious this steak also had to be smoky, so this was also added to the mix of our “fine seasonings”. The only thing missing was a way to make it healthy. Well, steak is not necessarily a bad guy, you just need to pick the right lean cut. It’s all about your eye round, top round, top sirloin, top loin and tenderloin style cuts. Also, use common sense…the more fat marbling you see the more fat that steak is likely going to contain. Want to go even healthier? If you can get your hands on bison or buffalo even better! Not only are they tasty and brag worthy they are much lower in fat and calories…some cuts can even be lower than chicken. Crazy! Have I talked enough about beef? Alright, then on we go!

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp crushed dried peppers
  • 1/2 tsp smoked salt (if none is available add a dash of liquid smoke to sea salt)
  • 8 oz steak (I used top sirloin)
  • 2 tbl Mrs. Dash
  • 1 lb yellow fleshed potato
  1. Combine the paprika, salt, and dried peppers. Rub the seasoning into the steak on both sides and allow to sit for 20 minutes.
  2. Wash and cut the potatoes into wedges about 1/2″ thick. Toss the potatoes in a plastic bag or bowl with the Mrs. Dash spices until well coated. Pour the potatoes out onto a baking dish. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes.
  3. Cook the steak to desired doneness. I like to grill mine, I highly recommend. Slice the steak thinly and serve with potato wedges.

This serves two. Each serving of steak and potatoes contains 340 calories, 7.3 grams of fat and 4.4 grams of fibre. As you can see this is absolutely awesome with salad. After I ate this I didn’t feel like I had that much agility but “meaty!” was definitely achieved.
