"My favorite animal is steak."
-Fran Lebowitz, American Writer and Humorist
Yes, you can eat steak and be healthy. I will also say that I love this technique using the maple syrup. When it hits the hot pan and sears the sugars crystallize and enhance the umami flavor of the beef.
Trimming beef, lamb and pork of fat reduces calories simply by lowering the amount of fat. From a health standpoint this is key because there is clear proof that consuming fewer calories in the form of saturated fat lowers the risk of heart attack and stroke.
There is not much cholesterol in the fat, though. It is found in the meat itself, so the amount of cholesterol is fairly similar in most cuts of meat. Each ounce of red meat has about 25 mg of cholesterol.

|4 Tbsp||curley parsley|
|3 Tbsp||oregano (minced)|
|3 Tbsp||fresh tarragon|
|3 Tbsp||maple syrup|
|1/4 tsp||fresh ground black pepper|
|4||4 ounce rib eye steaks (small end - well trimmed)|
|spray olive oil|
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place a 12 inch non-stick skillet in the oven.
Mix the minced herbs together and place on a plate.
Pour the maple syrup onto a second plate.
After the steaks are trimmed and you are ready to begin cooking sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Dip one side of the steak in the maple syrup and then turn to coat thoroughly.
Dip the coated steak in the herbs turning to coat completely. Pat the herbs in place. Repeat for each steak. If there is left over maple syrup or herbs recoat the steaks.
Remove the hot pan from the oven and spray lightly with oil. Immediately add the steaks to the hot pan so that they sear well. Return the pan to the oven and cook for about 4 minutes on the first side. Turn the steak to sear the other side and return to the oven.
Cook on the second side for about 6 minutes for rare.
