High Protein Recipes: Eat like Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine
When the work in the gym is done, it is time to eat. Robert eats to fuel his gains in the gym, but unlike a hardcore bodybuilder, he is not about to choke down steamed broccoli and plain grilled chicken. What did you expect?! The man is a chef! Here, he shares with us his favorite dinner recipes. They are high in protein to fuel muscle growth, but they are anything but plain.
ROBERT SAYS “Because the flank steak comes from a well-exercised muscle, it often cooks up tough. Marinating it is essential to keep it tender.”
1 ½-2 lbs flank steak
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
¼ cup light soy sauce
2 tbsp parsley, minced
1 tbsp rosemary, minced
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1) Combine balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, parsley, rosemary,
and garlic in a bowl. Whisk together to create a marinade.
2) Place steak in a shallow pan or glass dish and cover with marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, flipping midway.
3) Preheat grill or set your broiler to low. Cook 7-8 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting against the grain. Pair with a vegetable of your choice, or serve on rolls for a savory steak sandwich.
