An awesome tasting, healthy and super quick recipe. A great way of getting some top quality protein, vegetables and healthy fats. We have used rump steak for this dish (grass fed) so it’s nice and cheap yet still full of goodness. I cooked this dish for my Mum for lunch as she is not feeling well. Grass fed beef is full of minerals such as zinc and immune boosting proteins. Both garlic and honey have anti bacterial and anti viral properties. Making this a great winter dish.
