Tenderloin Steaks with Red Onion Marmalade
Simple, high quality ingredients are the key to putting nutritious, “clean” meals on the table fast. In this recipe, lean steaks are quickly broiled, then topped with sweet and sour onions. Beef tenderloin is naturally high in protein and is a good source of iron, B12, B6, and niacin. Small amounts of protein eaten throughout the day build lean muscle mass, promote satiety, and keep blood glucose levels stable so you don’t feel sluggish. Pair with steamed green beans and smashed potatoes for a family-pleased meal you can feel good about.
