Keto Steak Dinner For Two


Step 1Remove the steaks from your fridge and sit on the bench to come to room temperature.
(Note: this is an OMAD style meal. If you need to reduce the amount of protein and/or fat, serve smaller steaks and reduce the amount of hollandaise to serve them with.)

Step 2Make the hollandaise by taking a large-mouthed mason jar, or any jar that your hand blender will comfortably fit inside. Place the jar on your scale and zero it back. Place the butter in the jar and then melt it in the microwave until just melted.
(Note: You can swap the butter with ghee or extra virgin olive oil.)

Step 3Place the egg yolks and lemon juice into the butter.

Step 4Place the hand blender at the bottom of the jar and blitz until combined, lifting the blender slowly. You can either blitz the tomato and basil into the sauce or stir it through at the end…or half and half. It all depends on your personal preferences – I did half and half. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Step 5Snap the woody ends off the asparagus by bending them gently until they snap, trimming the ends if desired. Place them in a bowl with the olive oil and toss to coat.

Step 6Preheat your bbq grill or grill pan until very hot. If you are using a grill pan, rub each side of your steaks with olive oil. Season steaks with salt and pepper.

Step 7Lay your steaks on your grill surface and leave for two minutes, rotate them a 1/4 turn if you want criss-cross grill marks. If you don’t, leave them where they are. It’s very important to not move the steaks around while they cook.

Step 8Cook the steaks for 3-5 minutes each side, depending on your desired level of doneness. Remove from the heat but don’t turn the grill off. Cover the steaks loosely with foil and leave to rest while you grill the asparagus.

Step 9Place the asparagus onto the hot grill, cover and cook for approx. 10 minutes, turning halfway.

Step 10Sprinkle with salt and pepper when done. Store leftover hollandaise in a jar in the fridge for up to three days. Warm gently before using.
