The American Dental Association endorses steak! Yessssss!
With that great news shared, here is a reason to eat red meat without feeling guilty in the slightest:
Read meat contains phosphorus which helps protect tooth enamel and bone. In addition, eating “challenging foods”, or those that make you chew a lot, helps to strengthen jaw muscles.
In light of the good news, here is a healthy steak recipe that is very popular in Argentina (and in my household).
Prep time: 3 hours, Cook time: 16 minutes
Combine the red wine, salt and rosemary in a small bowl. Let stand at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours.
- Heat a large griddle or cast-iron skillet over high heat. Place the steaks on the hot pan, and cook for about 8 minutes per side, or to desired degree of doneness. The internal temperature should be at least 145 degrees F (62 degrees C) for medium rare. Pour in the wine mixture, and allow it to boil for a minute. Serve steaks with sauce on a deep platter.
