1 1/2 starch, 2 vegetable, 4 lean meat
1 medium yellow onion (peeled, quartered, thinly sliced)
1 teaspoon water
2 tablespoon no-sodium Italian seasoning
1 package sliced white mushrooms (roughly chopped)
1 pound beef filet top sirloin, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 red or green bell peppers
1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup shredded, fat-free mozzarella cheese
4 small whole-wheat rolls, to serve
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Make 4 sheets of aluminum foil about 30 inches long. Fold the foil in half width wise (into almost a square) so it's extra-sturdy.
Peel and quarter the onion. Thinly slice each quarter and add to a heatproof container with water. Microwave onions until mostly tender, about 90 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on microwave's power. Carefully transfer onions into a medium bowl.
Seed each bell pepper and then thinly slice. Roughly chop the sliced mushrooms. Transfer both bell peppers and mushrooms into the bowl with the onion.
Thinly slice the top sirloin into 1/2-inch strips. Add sirloin into the bowl with the vegetables. Stir in balsamic vinegar, canola oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Use tongs or a spoon to mix until combined.
Divide mixture into 4 equal portions into the center of each foil square. Top each portion with 1/4 cup cheese.
Securely seal the top and sides of each foil packet. Place each foil packet onto a large baking sheet and add into the preheated oven. Cook until beef is cooked through, about 20 minutes. (Remove 1 packet to check that steak is fully cooked before removing them all from the oven.)
Place each foil packet onto a plate. Carefully open each packet and serve with rolls.
Cooking Tip: Low-fat varieties of cheeses like provolone or Swiss can be substituted for the mozzarella.
Keep it Healthy: Craving steak, but want to stay healthy? Beef filet top sirloin is one of the best picks on account of its leanness.
Tip: Onions require a longer cooking time than the other ingredients which is why they get a needed zap in the microwave before being add to the foil packet.
