Eaten alone, these are both still great choices for energy, each being a great source of iron and of B vitamins.
But eaten together they are even more powerful - broccoli is also an excellent source of vitamin C and the body absorbs iron better when it's taken with vitamin C.
So by adding broccoli to our steak we get maximum energy benefits.
And of course, it's also just a great-tasting meal.
First I toasted some flaked almonds in a dry non-stick pan and set aside to add at the end - just for a lovely crunch on top of the broccoli and for extra healthy fats. Don't use peanuts - peanuts are legumes rather than nuts and don't have the same health benefits as nuts!
I trimmed the ends of the broccoli and then put it into a pan of boiling water which I then immediately removed from the heat and let the broccoli sit for ten minutes.
I drizzled my piece of rump steak with a little soy sauce then cooked it on a very hot griddle pan for three minutes on each side (leaving it alone during that cooking time) and then rested it while I stir-fried the broccoli n a few sprays of cooking oil in a non-stick pan with a little red chilli and a dash of soy sauce.
Note: I like my steak medium-rare to rare so do just cook your steak the way YOU like it!
I love the simplicity of this dinner and also just that magic of how things work together - this is a perfect pairing for energy.
