Steak with a sauce of red beet

Just beet it.

Throughout the entire year, you can find red beets in the supermarket. Did you know that red beets are really healthy? They help reduce high blood pressure, work anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and fight damage to your cognitive function. Interesting right? This means, I have no other choice than to use red beets in one of my recipes. Eventually, I decided to make a sauce out of red beets. Because a red beet sauce made out of only red beets is quite plain, I added some more ingredients to the mix. That way the sauce will have even more flavour.

The recipe.

This dish is actually a twist on a traditional Belgian dish called steak with fries. A delicious steak, served with fries, bacon and a sauce of red beet and apple. You can choose to pour the sauce over your meat or just use it as a dip for your fries! Both are equally good! Finally, you can find the recipe for this dish if you scroll down a bit. Now, you can get cooking! Good luck!
