WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

MINUTE STEAKS WITH BARBECUE BUTTER SAUCE

2 (5 ounce) boneless sirloin steaks
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup beef broth
1 1/2 tablespoons barbeque sauce
1 dash hot pepper sauce
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cold butter, or more to taste
1 tablespoon olive, canola, or coconut oil


Place each steak between two sheets of heavy plastic (or inside a resealable freezer bag) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound each steak with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4-inch. Remove steaks from plastic.

Generously season each steak with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.

Combine beef broth, barbeque sauce, hot sauce, and black pepper in a bowl. Add chilled butter to broth mixture but do not stir.

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat until it just begins to smoke, about 1 minute. Place each steak in the pan; sear for 45 to 60 seconds on each side. Remove steaks from skillet and set them aside to rest.

Pour the broth mixture into the skillet and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir occasionally until butter is melted and incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Spoon broth and butter mixture over steak and serve.
