Ingredients

  • 4 boneless eye-of-round steaks (4 ounces each), all visible fat discarded
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free garlic and herb seasoning blend
  • Vegetable oil spray
  • 1 cup fat-free, no-salt-added beef broth
  • 1/4 cup whole almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce or 1/3 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon prepared white horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free garlic and herb seasoning blend

Directions

  1. Season both sides of the steaks evenly with 1 teaspoon garlic and herb seasoning blend.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steaks for 2 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  3. Add the broth and bring to a simmer.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender.
  5. If needed, add water 1/4 cup at a time to keep the steaks from sticking.
  6. If desired, reserve 1/2 to 2/3 cup cooking liquid to spoon over the steaks before serving.
  7. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, dry-roast the whole almonds over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  8. Transfer to the work bowl of a food processor and let cool for 5 minutes.
  9. In the same skillet, dry-roast the sliced almonds for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  10. Transfer to a small plate and set aside.
  11. Process the whole almonds for 1 to 2 minutes, or until finely ground.
  12. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  13. Stir in the cranberry sauce or sour cream, horseradish, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic and herb seasoning blend until well combined.
  14. To serve, spoon the reserved pan liquid over each steak.
  15. Top each with about 2 tablespoons sauce.
  16. Garnish with the almond slices.
