Recipe: Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes with Grilled Organic Brahman Steak
Not sure if any of you are feeling the pre-summer slump but boy I cannot shake my winter weight. Granted, I am not really doing anything serious about it but still! I turned to the Keto diet for help. It worked for a little while but the thing nobody is talking about is if you stop… all the weight comes right back with a vengeance.
Anyhoo, I found myself at the Bryanston Organic Market to do an interview for work and ended up shopping my heart out. I had about 3 kilos of tomatoes from our trip to Tzaneen, Limpopo and needed to cook them quickly. There has been this recipe of balsamic roasted tomatoes sitting on my brain for a while. Then I found the most beautiful Brahman steaks and knew it would be a match made in heaven. I also picked up an organic steak spice made up of kosher salt and spices.
The steaks were beautifully marbled and had a lovely layer of fat on the back. So dinner was a simple one, especially as Johannesburg is currently in the middle of a heatwave from hell.
The combination of the balsamic roasted tomatoes with a lightly spiced grilled steak was heavenly. I have never had a more delicious tomato based meal in my life. This recipe is strongly recommended if you wish to impress dinner guests, your partner or heck, even just yourself.
Give it a try and let me know your thoughts, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
