Garlic Steak Bite Salad, with a delicious tarragon dressing : Low Carb : Keto


It would seem I've had a theme going this week, albeit un-intentional, but the word or should I say herb tarragon has appeared in several recipes and posts!

Summer carrot, tarragon and white bean soup here and also Tarragon, a popular and versatile herb, and some recipe suggestions here. To make it a trio of tarragon themed posts todays recipe suggestion is Garlic Steak Bite Salad, with a tarragon dressing... I hope you like this quick and easy to prepare dish.

Four Servings
6g net carbs per serving
Tarragon dressing
1⁄3 cup / 80ml mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
2 tbsp water
½ tbsp dried tarragon
½ tbsp Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, pressed
4 cups (8 oz. / 220g) leafy greens
8 oz. / 220g cherry tomatoes
1 (7 oz. / 200g) avocado
6 oz. / 170g cucumber
Garlic steak bites
2 lbs flank steak or ribeye steaks or sirloin steak, cut into 1" (2.5 cm) pieces
2 tbsp ghee or butter
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
can be seen here
Additional Tips and Information
What is ghee?
Ghee is clarified butter meaning that the milk protein has been removed. This makes it perfect for frying on high temperatures since it won't burn as easily as butter.
Budget tips
Ask the butcher if they have steak bites you could buy. Some butchers will charge a lot less for steak bites even if the cut is typically more expensive since the pieces are too small to sell as a full steak.
I don't eat red meat
You could replace the meat with any meat of your preference. For example chicken, pork tenderloin, lamb or even fish or shrimps. Just make sure to adjust the cooking methods accordingly.
Want juicer steak bites?
If you choose a less tender cut of meat like flank, you can marinate in advance to tenderize and flavour the meat. A combination of tamari, vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, dried parsley works very nicely with this dish.

That looks delicious -- and especially the dressing. As I mentioned yesterday, I love tarragon but sometimes I don't know what to do with it -- in a dressing it would taste so fresh!

Have a lovely weekend!

This looks delicious, and I must admit I don't like a big piece of meat on my plate - I don't know why, I just prefer my meat 'in' something rather than as it's own thing. Have a great weekend xx
