This simple Keto Low-Carb Montreal Strip Loin satisfies the palate while meeting your macros for fat and protein.  I like to enjoy grass-fed steak about once per month.  Buying a decent cut, such as a grass-fed strip-loin from the butcher, can be expensive.  So Shawn and I eat it occasionally. 

We have experimented with several different cuts, but the strip loin from our local butcher is our favorite.  No matter how we choose to cook this cut, it’s always as soft as butter, juicy, and highly flavorful.

This particular cut derives from the top portion of the short loin, nestled between the cow’s ribs and sirloin. This area of the cow gets little exercise.  It’s marbled with fat and has less muscle and so is tender and juicy.  Beef, in general, is packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.   It’s a thick cut ideal for grilling, broiling, sautéing, or pan-frying.

Montreal Steak Spice, named after the Quebec City, has been part of Canadian grilling habits for decades.  I grew up with this seasoning.

According to Wikipedia, Montreal’s famous Schwartz’s deli first created Montreal steak seasoning. As the story goes… during the 1940s and 1950s, a Schwartz’s broilerman Morris “The Shadow” Sherman began adding the deli’s smoked meat pickling spice blend to his own rib and liver steaks.

You can always purchase this seasoning.  However, the best parts about making your own version are the inexpensive price and the fact that you can leave out the salt, MSG and sugar.  This makes your blend so much healthier.  It’s true that on a Keto Low-Carb diet you need not worry about salt reduction.  But if you’re living the Keto Low-Carb lifestyle, it’s optimal to always keep salt intake low and eliminate altogether refined sugar.

WHAT ARE THE NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF GRASS-FED STRIP LOIN?

Grass-fed beef is known to be a nutritious and healthy food option. Compared to grain-fed beef, it is leaner and has a higher concentration of nutrients. Grass-fed beef contains higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids which are essential for heart health. It is also rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which has been linked to a lower risk of cancer and heart disease. Additionally, grass-fed beef contains higher levels of vitamins A and E, as well as antioxidants, which can help to boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.

In terms of minerals, grass-fed beef is a good source of iron, zinc, and selenium. These minerals are important for maintaining proper immune function, blood health, and overall well-being. Grass-fed beef is also a great source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids needed for growth and repair of tissues in the body.

Overall, grass-fed beef is a nutritious and healthy food option that can provide a range of health benefits when consumed as part of a balanced diet.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO LOW-CARB MONTREAL STRIP LOIN?   

The predominant taste sensations of Keto Low-Carb Montreal Strip Loin are fattiness (from the steak and butter) and herbaceous-ness from the Montreal steak spice. 

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB MONTREAL STRIP LOIN? 

The predominant taste sensation of Keto Low-Carb Montreal Strip Loin is fattiness due to the beef.  Think big red.  Choose a red with some earthiness to add to the herbal tones in the spice mix.  Go for Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel, Grenache, or a hefty Merlot. 

*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring.  Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal.  Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat.  Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite.  So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
