Whether you’re watching your health or your weight, you can still enjoy beef on occasion. But when you’re concerned about your health or you’re trying to lose weight, you want the leanest cuts of beef. Some dieters consider steak to be a luxury. However, it is a good source of protein, which can help you feel full, but some cuts are also very high in fat and calories, which quickly derails your diet. This doesn’t mean you can’t eat a small portion of steak from time to time while on a diet; consider the beef in your diet as a side dish, not the main dish. If you eat small portions you can fit it into your weight loss plan. The following recipe will show you how to cook a prime strip steak that is full of flavor without added calorie-loaded toppings and condiments.

- In an airtight shallow glass dish combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper, until thoroughly combined. Rub steaks on both sides with steak seasoning, and place in the marinade. Turn the strip steaks once or twice to ensure they marinate evenly. Cover and refrigerate the steaks for 30 minutes.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Use a pair of tongs to hold a paper towel dipped in a ½ tablespoon of olive oil and lightly grease grill grates.
- Remove the steaks from the marinade, and discard the marinade. Place steaks in the hot skillet, and grill steaks for about 5 minutes on each side, or to the desired doneness.
- Move the steaks to a serving plate, and keep warm.
- If you are following a low carbohydrate diet, prime strip steak is a great choice for you to eat. It contains zero carbohydrates. Create a full, low-fat meal by serving it alongside a vegetable salad dressed in low carbohydrate dressing. If you aren’t following a low carbohydrate diet, pair the steak with brown rice and broccoli for a fiber-rich dinner.
