Not your Mediocre Steak!

in #food4 years ago

When you feel like eating healthy...

...But you are also craving a slab of meat!


(My cast iron Lodge pan.) I only cook the steak for 4 minutes on each side once the pan is smoking hot.

In the Philippines, steak is not as common as it is in western countries. Actually, I believe this is because steak here is too tough, and has an overwhelming smell. A lot of Filipinos don't like beef for this reason. Maybe it is because cows here graze on grass, that is grown in highly acidic soil?

Growing up, I never, ever liked beef. It actually wasn't until I moved to Cebu with my boyfriend, that I actually learned to enjoy beef. Steak, burgers, burritos, and meatloaf!

(Preparing a quick salad to pair with my ribeye)

I marinated the steak for only 2 hours with about 4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce, 3 garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons EVOO. The garlic flavor came through the steaks was exactly how I wanted, not over powering but just perfect!

I served it together with a simple salad and my homemade vinaigrette dressing. Voilà!

(Steak and salad, yum!)

you knocked me out with that fish! did you save me some? =)

Is it so good?


Wowowow, that looks so tasty! I don't know what makes it look like that but I'm sure it was crunchy and delicious.

Wow, that looks delicious! Yes,us Filipinos never used to eating steak. It is only here in the States that I discovered eating it. And I always want it well done and my husband will flip out and I told him because we always cook our food well. Afraid of bacterial contamination. Nice article,keep on posting!

Wow! That's an interesting fact about Philippines that I didn't know! Here in Venezuela meat is the main part of all the dishes, although nowadays it's so expensive people are buying more chicken.

oh, that bacterial contamination thing! I learned that from my partner too! haha now I always paranoid of what I eat haha

thank you for your time to read, how's your holiday?

It was great,worked christmas eve then off christmas day. We had a great time as family. Kids cant wait opening their santa's present.

Hey @purepinay, I hope everything is perfect there. You didn't come out with a new blog specially it's Happy New Year event, so I was a bit worry. Anyways, I'm giving you and your Family a very blessed Happy New Year wish. I'm really thankful to you for the work you have done in 2017 for steemian community. And all the very best for the year 2018. Stay Blessed:


Happy New Year - 2018


Thank you @jawad09 for thinking of me, that's really sweet of you.

I just got back from my trip. There's no internet where I went for new year 😅 but will be blogging very soon just need to catch up some sleep =)

Thank you for the greetings. Hope you have anazing and productive year!


Thanks for your prompt reply @purepinay. Sure and will wait for your next blog as well. Keep smiling!

Cast iron pan is the best for grilling steak for its heat retainment. Oh and the setting sun encapsulates your beauty.

Must have cast iron pan!

Oh that? Thanks to the backlight 😁

Happy New Year! ❤️🎉🎊🥂

Salad, steak, shots (photos), steam and Steemit all are beautiful. :)

By the way, this road/lane in the background looks clean and not very crowded. Whoever took this photo is an artist. Shared.

Steem On!

aw! thank you, my boyfriend took the photo, I'll pass the compliment =)

How are you?

aw! thank you, my boyfriend took the photo, I'll pass the compliment =)

Say hello to him.

How are you?

I'm very handsome. :D :P .... Trust me, not flirting. :)

omg that is mouth-watering @purepinay, which shop did you bought the steak ? im badly looking for one here in cebu hence i am planning to cook

thank you ^_-
bought it at rustans, they sell good quality imported beef =)

wow nice , i'll look for one, thanks gillaine <3 ;))

First of all, I'd like to admit that you look beautiful. Your boyfriend must be a lucky guy to have you. Your post is as good as you are. I wonder I must be running out of words someday to compliment you either for you or for your posts. Wish I could write posts like you. If I could wear ornament to my post just like you do to all of your posts. The dish looks yummy.

But for your kind information, kindly try to control the intake of mutton as it's not good for health. It increases the cholesterol level which, in turn, might cause some cardio problem as you grow older. Once in a blue moon, its ok, but don't get used to it. It's just a friendly suggestion. I m not anyone who could advise you. Stay Good & Blessed. Wish you the Sweetest Happy New Year in Your life.

"We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" (caroling)

Pahingi po. Haha! :D

haha thank you for the Caroling!

here...pwede na bai- wrap and salad and steak? =D

Mmmm! Sarap! Thank you po! Hahaha! :D

Hey @purepinay
I am always a huge fan of eating meat especially the "Beef". My mouth watered when i saw you making salads and delicious steak.

Yesterday i had Chicken Bar B Q in my lunch and Beef in my dinner as whole yesterday was a day full of meat.

No doubt one becomes what he eats. Healthy food = Healthy Life.

Thank you so much for sharing your personal choice with us and teaching us some cooking techniques.

Keep Smiling and Stay Blessed as always.

Steem On!

wow, that's a lot of protein! how many pounds did you eat?

Happy Steeming <3

Yes lot of protein! well i don't really know about the pounds but yes i can put a vague guess about the calories i take normally

You're doing great job @purepinay ;) :)

Nice post! Thanks for sharing this beautful post. I know that beef may not be too good for health, so it has to be consumed with caution. For chiken, fish fine for me. Can you post those sumptious meals to me, because I am salavating. I follow and upvote you.

Thanks for the interesting pieces of information. Looks so yummy!

So much love to share,.. and Yes,... with the one who appriciate it everytime

Looks delicious 👍👍👍

Hey there, this is a good way to marinate your steak next time
2 teaspoonful of paprika
1 tablespoon of EVOO
half purple onion cut in julienne
salt to your taste and well, enjoy it :)
regards from Venezuela, thanks for your article

Looks absolutely delicious. I often use the same technique used on the steak with pork chops with the addition of 6-8 minutes in a 350F oven to make sure the pork is done. Can't wait to try it with steak.

Nice and lovely post .thanks for sharing this post.

Sucks to hear about the beef. Good quality beef here in the US is eaten without anything added, well maybe a pinch of salt. Nice pics. You look great too... Now I'm hungry for steak ;-(

Wow What a delicious dish :)

Hi @purepinay

Have a fantastic start into this exciting year 2018! I will certainly keep an eye out for your new adventures and cullinary journeys!

Looks good and I LOVE my Lodge cast iron pans as well. How good are they, I feel like they add as much flavour as any condiment or seasoning.

Great work with the steak, marinade and salad, looks like a healthy and delicious meal.
