The intent here was to test Mrs. Dash’s Steak Seasoning Grilling blend, so I kept things simple so the seasoning blend was the only seasoning used. It had no sodium, so the two sources of sodium for the meal would be the steaks (which are fairly low sodium) and the frozen french fries I was serving with the steaks. I used 12 oz. rib-eye to help keep both the calories and sodium down. While you could make your own French fries and keep the sodium down, frozen oven fries can be a great convenience. the serving portions usually list xx amount of fries in addition to the weight in grams. This makes it easy to choose the right amount of fries for the amount of sodium you have to use for the fries. For this meal the steak was about 150mg of sodium and this meant I could eat about 20 fries for 200mg. of sodium.
- Seasoned the steaks with only Mrs. Dash’s Steak Seasoning Grilling blend. 0mg. of sodium.
- Used Mrs. Dash Table Blend at the table for seasoning the steak and fries. The steak did not actually need any additional seasoning..
The steak did blacken considerably which was a bit worrisome at first. The steak did have a bit of a crispy outer crust which was good and did not taste burned. The flavor was quite good, savory but not as “salty” tasting as a steak seasoned with a large amount of kosher salt. I am getting used to foods tasting less “salty” and I find I am starting to notice some of the other subtle flavors in the food. Bottom line is the steak had good flavor and I did not feel the need to use the Mrs. Dash Table Blend on the steak. I did use it on the fries. This was a successful meal, quick to make and it had great flavor, even without the salt. When I first got put on the low sodium diet, I didn’t know if a meal like this (steak & fries) was even possible. With a few changes it is VERY
