Citrus Steak (HCG Friendly)

This started out looking really plain, and I kept adding per "HCG Diet" rules. Turned out FANTASTIC. The sauce added another dimension to it--so don't leave it out! I would make this again, even though I'm not the one on the HCG diet--and its great for other family members as well.


Flank steak, fat removed, sliced into strips [HCG diet allows 100 grams (3.2 oz) per person]
Handful of cherry or grape tomatoes [as many as you would like--"free veggie" on HCG]
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-sized chunks ["free veggie"]
1/2 head of lettuce ["free!"]
1 orange [this may count as your 1 fruit for meal, so double check before eating more fruit]
2 tblsp apple cider vinegar
2 tblsp chopped fresh basil
salt & pepper to taste
2 tblsp water

In a ziplock bag, combine vinegar, basil, s&p and the juice of the orange and add meat--toss to coat. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes or more. Remove steak from bag, reserving juice.

In a small saucepan, over med-low heat, bring to a simmer the reserved juice and let it simmer while grilling.

Layer the skewers with strips of steak, tomatoes and bell pepper pieces. Grill over med-high heat until desired doneness, about 10 minutes (rotating often). Remove from heat. Drizzle sauce over top.

Serve on top of lettuce [free veggie according to the HCG diet], using the sauce as a dressing. Serves 4.

HCG indicates Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It truly is a sort of hormone that is developed by the embryo and placenta throughout the woman’s pregnancy. HCG can be a great aid for female fertility and can offer healthy advantages. And one excellent factor about it really is that it may be a powerful aid for weight loss. It is possible to either take HCG orally or by means of vitamin injections.
