Steak & Salad - Perfect South Beach Fare
We just got back from a wonderful visit to Montreal and naturally, we overdid the eating....way too many carbs (and not the good kind) - party sandwiches, Montreal bagels with lox (smoked salmon) and cream cheese, delicious little rogelach and danishes filled with jam, egg rolls from Yangtze restaurant (because a trip to Montreal without them would be sacrilege) two different "bad" Chinese dinners ( bad only in the sense that we ordered all the dishes we usually stay away from - deep fried chicken balls served in the sweetest red sauce, fried rice (not brown that's a given), honey garlic spareribs....you get the picture. And as if that wasn't enough, don't forget all the chocolate and chips we munched while watching videos.
What can I say....it is DEFINITELY time for a South Beach DietRegroup.
So our first dinner back home was a very simple, but very tasty grilled (it may be around the freezing mark here in Toronto, but we're still BBQing) strip loin steak with a salad. When I did the Vietnamese Summer Rolls, (also SBD friendly) the recipe called for just a hint of rice wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil and that's all I added to some Romaine hearts and tons of herbs.
