I recently indulged in an enormous Prairie Roots Organic ribeye steak from SunWorks Farm, right here in Alberta. Their organic, ethical and humane farming practices are worthy of support and recognition — I encourage you to peruse their website to learn more about their products and incredible commitment to sustainable farming.
It feels pretty good to know that the meal you’re preparing supports organic farming standards and has a positive impact on the environment and the treatment of animals. So sharpen your knife and get in on some certified organic, free-range, grass-fed amazingness!
Organic Ribeye Steak with Sesame Sauce and 12 Grain Rice
- 1 organic rib eye steak
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 minced clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- 1/2 cup 12 grain rice
- 2 tablespoons lentils
- 1 cup water or broth
- 1 tablespoon sesame steak sauce
- Fresh sunflower shoots
- Fresh ground salt and pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic and thyme and rub into the steak. Thoroughly coat both sides, season with salt and pepper, wrap and allow to marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Combine rice, lentils and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes. Check periodically and add additional water or broth if necessary. Set a grill to medium-high heat and cook the steak for about 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and set aside to rest before slicing.
When plating, start with bed of 12 grain rice and top with steak sections and a handful of sunflower shoots. Dress with the desired amount of sesame sauce and enjoy!
I recommend making your own sesame sauce (this steak deserves it) and there’s a great recipe over on ChowTown if you want to give it a shot!
