Grilled steak with roasted garlic paste (Diabetic)


1 garlic bulb (with about 1216 cloves)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 lean sirloin steaks (4 ounces each), trimmed of visible fat


Preheat oven to 350F. Cut 1/2 inch off the top of the garlic bulb, and rub the cut area with a bit of olive oil. Wrap in a piece of foil to seal, and bake about 3040 minutes until soft. Cool bulb enough to handle. Wrap a towel around the warm bulb and squeeze the bulb to expel the flesh into a small bowl. With a fork, mash the garlic into a paste. Add olive oil and mix well. Add parsley, cheese, lemon juice, and pepper.
Broil or grill steaks until almost to desired doneness. (For medium steak, internal temperature should be about 165F.) For last 2 minutes of cooking, spoon garlic mixture on top of steaks in an even layer. (Garlic paste can also be used to coat four 4-ounce chicken breasts or 1 pound of shrimp.)
