Saturday Night Dinner

Tonight I have decided to stay at home really feel for something different for dinner. I went down to the supermarket and found a great piece of organic eye fillet. I decided that red wine was a must for a steak like that. Here is a dinner which despite the one glass of red wine stay under 500 calories. Awesome!

Portobello Stack with Grilled Eye Fillet and Red Wine Juice - 2 portions
(459Cal, 15g fat, 12g Carbs, 39g Protein, (16g Alcohol/112Cal))

4 large Portobello mushrooms
1 Red Capsicum
12 slices of Coppa (Prosciutto if you can't find it)
1 Tbsp Olive oil (Porcini infused if possible)
6 large leafs Rocket
300g Eye Fillet
2-4 Garlic Cloves
6-8 Schalotts
300 ml Red Wine (+150ml to drink)

Start with cleaning the mushrooms and vegetables. Brush them with the oil and grill in the owen on 225 degrees until baked throughout (15-20 min). Heat up a grill-pan. Spray the meat lightly with olive oil spray then salt and pepper. Grill the meat on high heat. Make sure not to over cook the steak. Put the steak to rest wrapped in tin foil.

Rinse out the pan with the red wine and let the alcohol evaporate. Reduce to half volume and put to the side. Place the rocket leafs on the plate as a base then layer the portobello mushrooms with the coppa and grilled red capsicum. Place the schalotts and garlic cloves together with the steak on the side.

Before serving pour a couple of table spoons of the red wine juice over the meat. Enjoy with a glass of nice red wine.
