One of our favorite comfort foods here at Tundra Restaurant Supply is a classic Irish-American dish: milk steak. This crowd favorite originates from the mid-Atlantic region and is most popular in Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs. Most prefer their milk steak boiled “over hard” and garnished with a generous handful of raw jelly beans. A perfect date-night dish.
Cooking time: 20 minutes
- 1 (1 ½ pound) beef flank steak
- 2 cups whole (4%) milk
- 3 tablespoons honey
- ⅓ cup raw jelly beans
- Salt to taste
In a saucepan, bring milk to a boil and gently add steak. Reduce heat to a low boil, stir in honey and cook until meat is firm, 5–7 minutes per side. Sprinkle jelly beans over steak and serve immediately.
