"Basically, I'm making a BLD, what I call something you could serve for brunch, lunch or dinner," says Rach. The entire meal—giardiniera-topped minute steaks, scrambled eggs and broiled stuffed tomatoes—is "super easy, super delicious and nutritious." By the way, adds Rach, people often confuse minute steak with cube steak, but they are two different things. "Minute steaks," she says, "are very thin pieces of sirloin that you cook for about a minute on each side." They're really tasty and couldn't be faster or easier to prepare.

  • 4 beefsteak tomatoes or 8 vine tomatoes, tops trimmed, then carefully seeded
  • 6 tablespoons EVOO
  • Salt and pepper 
  • A handful of basil
  • 1 cup packed parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Non-aerosol cooking spray
  • Eight 3- to 4-ounce minute steaks (thin cut pieces of beef sirloin)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of choice
  • Combo 2 tablespoons butter  and 1 tablespoon EVOO
  • Handful of chopped chives or micro chives
  • 1 cup giardiniera (chopped hot vegetable salad), drained and finely chopped
  • Juice of ½ lemon


Serves: 4


Season tomatoes and arrange on baking sheet or broiler pan. Drizzle cavities with half the EVOO.  Season with salt and pepper. Pulse-process herbs and garlic in a food processor, fill the cavities of tomatoes with the mixture and top with remaining EVOO. Broil on center rack until brown at edges and tomatoes begin to slump a bit, 6 to 8 minutes.  

Heat cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray pan with oil. Season meat with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Cook steaks until brown, about 1 to 1 ½ minutes on each side, then remove to warm platter.
