We devoted another review of hozOboz to a not quite traditional, but very tasty meat dish called steak. Having seen our recipe, you are unlikely to recognize the classic version - it is rather something of an author. Meanwhile, hozOboz hopes that this interpretation will take its rightful place in your personal cookbook and you will cook it with pleasure. First of all, we pay attention to the fact that for our recipe we chose minced pork steak. We stopped at pork for a reason, in our opinion, it is pork steak that turns out to be the most fragrant and juicy.
Of course, opponents of this type of meat will appeal to its harmful properties, but we will talk about the benefits of the products later, but for now, a little history of the dish and a few words about the methods of its preparation.
Beefsteak is a dish of English cuisine and if you translate it literally, then the name itself consists of two words "beef" - beef and "steaks" - pieces. It is clear that the classic version does not mean a minced steak at all, but a dish of a whole piece of meat, moreover, its sirloin part, cooked in a special way - in the form of a steak. Such steaks come in different degrees of roasting and each of the options has its own names well known to meat gourmets. The steak can be "rare", can be medium rare, so-called "medium" and fried to the end.
However, over time, options for minced steaks began to appear - these are original prototypes of cutlets. Just like the classic chopped steaks, they are also divided into varieties, but here everything is still more exotic. More often, of course, they make a steak in the oven, but there are recipes where minced meat is served without preliminary heat treatment, and even with a raw egg - this is a dish of the same name but with the prefix "in Tatar". We will be traditional and today we will tell you how to cook minced pork steak in the oven. But first, let's figure out whether such food is useful, starting from its ingredients.
Ingredients for steaks:
How useful is pork?
Pig meat is one of the most popular and favorite varieties. And this love is fully justified because, contrary to all fears, pork can do more good than harm. Firstly, this variety is the most easily digestible compared to the others, only lamb is better digested. In addition, pork contains a lot of protein. In general, today it has already been reliably established that in lean pork, for example, tenderloin, there is much less fat than in veal or even chicken, except for the breast. Now a few words about such a hated pork fat. So, pig fat is much safer for blood vessels than, say, beef, so we were able to debunk another myth. Now let's move on to the chemical composition. First of all, I would like to note the high content of B vitamins, which help to keep the nervous system in order, contributes to the regulation of hormones and proper metabolism. There is also a lot of zinc in pork, and it significantly stimulates all immune processes and magnesium, on which the work of the heart and the musculoskeletal system depends. Iron in pork helps blood formation, and selenium protects against free radicals and prevents cancer. All these facts apply to meat cooked on the grill, steamed or in the oven without the addition of excess fat, even vegetable;
How useful is onion?
A product that is included in our recipe several times at once: first as an additive to minced meat in a twisted form, and then as a filling. Given the properties of onions, our dish will be very, very healthy. After all, onions can be called truly a unique product, since its properties are universal. On the one hand, onion protects and rejuvenates the cells of the body, including the brain, on the other hand, it contains quartzetin, a powerful anti-cancer element. Onion also cleanses the blood, stimulates digestion, removes excess fluid from the body, cleanses the skin and keeps it young and attractive. And this is only a small fraction of the benefits that regular consumption of onions can bring you.
What is useful bell pepper?
There are many components in pepper that you can and should brag about. One of the most important is capsaicin - it lowers blood pressure, prevents the formation of blood clots, improves the functioning of the digestive system and thins the blood. Peppers are also rich in vitamins A and C, which improve vision and skin condition, stimulate hair growth and strengthen the immune system. And due to the high content of B vitamins, pepper is an excellent remedy for insomnia, nervous disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome;
What are the benefits of tomatoes?
Tomato should be added to all dishes, if only because it contains lycopene - a substance that has the strongest therapeutic properties. It is able to protect against cancer, act as a powerful antioxidant, and also minimizes the risk of cardiovascular disease. Tomatoes also contain volatile and as a result, these vegetables are able to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. Moreover, tomatoes improve metabolism and normalize water-salt metabolism in the body;
What is useful cheese "Suluguni"?
Suluguni is a variety of pickled Georgian cheese, which is made from cow, buffalo or goat milk. This cheese belongs to fibrous varieties and therefore its production technology can hardly be called simple - hence the relatively high price, provided that it is a real "suluguni". This cheese has a lot of protein and amino acids, and it also contains vitamins and microelements without which cell metabolism and normal metabolism are impossible. We also do not forget that it is made from milk, which means that no one has canceled all the beneficial properties of milk: milk protein, high calcium content, and much more.
We hope that our steak and its recipe, which, by the way, we provided with a photo, will become one of your favorite dishes among your other dishes. For our part, we promise an amazing taste and absolutely incomparable aroma of pork meat cooked in our own juice. Moreover, during the cooking process, the meat is saturated with the aromas of the filling: tomato, pepper, onion and, of course, cheese. It is best to eat such a dish with fresh vegetables, and not with cereals or potatoes - excess carbohydrates and starch in this case will definitely serve you well. For the rest, we rely on your imagination and experience and are waiting for new fresh recipes for this or other dishes. Bon appetit to everyone, good mood and new achievements in the culinary field.
