cooking steak with Liquid

In some parts of the world steaks are rare, but if you can find one well done! because today we will learn how to prepare a juicy steak for only $4. Welcome to another edition of cooking with Liquid. 🙂

For this recipe I’m using a 9.5 oz inside round steak which costs $3.57 from MarketPlace IGA, a local grocery chain. I find round cuts are good value for steaks at roughly $13/kg, and can be found in most supermarkets. I’m also using carrots and green beans because they are cheap and abundant across Canada and the U.S. A bundle of 10 carrots is $1.79 in Vancouver. That works out to only 18 cents each! Green beans cost $1.78 for a large handful and are a good source of potassium and dietary fibre.

Note: This post contains images of meat. I hope I didn’t offend any vegetarian readers. Feel free to stop reading here if you want, but doing so could be a missed steak. 😀
