IDEAL PROTEIN PHASE 2 & 3 | SERVINGS: 1 | TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN

If you are on phase 2 and are craving steak, or have BBQ plans and are looking for a weight loss-friendly recipe, try this Ideal Protein Tuscan-Style Filet Mignon with Grilled Veggies recipe.

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon rosemary leaves, chopped

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1 garlic clove, minced

½ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

¼ teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste

2 (5-ounce) filets mignons or 10 ounces flank steak, trimmed

3 cups baby bell peppers

2 small ears of sweet corn

1 cup cremini mushrooms, halved if large

8 whole green onions

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions:

Prepare an outdoor grill for medium- to high-heat cooking or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Stir the rosemary, lemon zest, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture over both sides of the steaks.

Toss the bell peppers, corn, mushrooms, and green onions in a large bowl with the oil and Italian seasoning. Place the steaks and vegetables on the grill rack and grill for 4 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the green onions to a plate. Turn the steaks and remaining vegetables and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of the steaks registers 145 degrees F for medium and the vegetables are lightly charred, about 4 minutes.

Transfer the steaks and vegetables to the plate with the green onions. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if you like.

Enjoy!
