Recipe from CarbLovers Diet

Blue cheese? Steak? Fries?! Is this diet food? Yes. By baking the fries, you slash calories but sacrifice none of the flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into ¼-inch-thick matchsticks
  • 1 pound sirloin steak
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style low-fat yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler. Spray sweet potato fries and steak with cooking spray. Place on separate baking sheets, and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Broil vegetables 20 minutes, turning once. Cook steak simultaneously for 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160� (medium) and fries until tender and crisp.
  2. 2. Combine yogurt, blue cheese, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss with lettuce, tomato, and carrot.
  3. 3. Cut steak into strips. Top salad with steak and serve with sweet potato fries and ketchup.
