Amazing raw beafsteak

We’re trying to eat more raw food, cos most things are better raw. Not all. But lots.

A few weeks ago I acquired a large roll of steak from Gilmour’s and sliced it up and froze it all. The first time I used some I cooked it, cos it needs to freeze for at least 14 days to kill any potential parasites. Amazing Husband was most disappointed.

The other night I got some more out. The next day I consulted Nourishing Traditions for a recipe, but didn’t have all the ingredients for any of them slash didn’t like the look of them. What to do? What I usually do – take the ideas and make up my own recipe.

Ingredients

  • 4 thin steaks, cut into thin slices (like the steak you can buy for stir frying)
  • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tsp grated ginger
  • juice of 4 small lemons (I used bought ones – homegrown you’d only need 2-3)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • liberal sprinkling of sesame seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chili flakes to taste (or fresh chili if you prefer)
  • chopped parsely and purple basil to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
Combine all ingredients but meat, then mix the meat in. Leave to marinade for a few hours. I did mine at room temperature for most of it, but would advise fridge if it's hot in the kitchen.

Serve with whatever you like. I did sauteed onion and cabbage for AH and that plus a bit of rice for me.

I wasn't brave enough to eat it raw, so very briefly chucked in the pan. The next night I was more brave and ate about half raw before being sick of cold food (blame the kids for everything else being cold) and I heated it up. It was actually really nice raw. And delicious lightly cooked.
