Most of the time, when you think of steak, you picture a nice, large juicy steak smothered in peppercorn sauce and large, chunky fries. You likely do not picture anything healthy.
Despite this, there are actually a lot of healthy recipes that you can prepare using steak.
So, if you love steak, the juicy flavor of this meat isn’t something that you have to part with when following a healthy diet. But what are these dishes? We hear you ask, well that’s where we come in!

Using a skillet (see also “Skillet Blackened Salmon Over Cajun Zoodles“) to prepare this dish makes it a lot healthier than some of the other cooking methods that you could use.
This skillet steak served with broccoli rabe and peas makes a yummy meal, and the mushroom sauce is just an added bonus.
