What Are Plant Sterols?
Did you know high cholesterol and heart disease can go hand-in-hand? Because both run in my family as well as my husbands, heart health is extremely important to us.
I recently learned about plant sterols, which can help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut. Ding ding! That’s awesome!
Plant Sterols Are Heart Healthy
Well, guess what?! Corn Oil has more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than other cooking oils. This includes extra virgin olive oil and canola oil, both of which I used in my cooking.
And not only does corn oil have those heart-healthy plant sterols, but it also has a neutral taste.
High Smoke Point Means Better Flavor
When I use it in baking, grilling, sautéing, or making a marinade or dressing, the beautiful flavors of my recipes can shine. Also, at 450°F, Mazola corn oil has a higher smoke point than most cooking oils and performs well in several different cooking applications.
I didn’t realize that when the smoke of cooking oil was exceeded, the food’s flavor and nutritional value are negatively affected.
Lightening Up My Carne Asada Street Tacos Recipe
To lighten up my recipe, I replaced three not so healthy ingredients with three that are better-for-you.
A Better For You Chipotle Marinade
For my chipotle marinade, I replaced extra virgin olive oil with Mazola corn oil. In my homemade Jalapeno Ranch Dressing, I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and almond milk instead of half and half. And to be honest, the result was a recipe that was lighter and tastier.
- 2 pounds lean London broil
- 1 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
- 1 can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
- 2 tablespoons garlic
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Instructions for meat:
Along with the marinade, place London broil in a Ziploc bag. Be sure to save about 1/2 cup of marinade to brush corn and meat. Place in the fridge and marinate a minimum of 1 hour.
Parboil fresh corn on the cob for 4-5 minutes. Remove from water and dry off. Preheat the grill to 375. Brush Mazola corn oil onto the grill to keep meat from sticking.
Brush fresh corn and meat clean marinade. Cook corn for about 15 minutes, turning every 4-5 minutes. Remove from grill and allow to cool. Remove kernels from the cob and set aside.
Place steak on the preheated grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. If your meat is on the thinner side, cook for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and rest for 5 minutes. Slice into thin strips and put aside.
- 1 packet of ranch dressing mix
- 12 ounces of Greek yogurt
- 1 small can of green chilies
- 1 small can of diced jalapenos
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup almond milk
Instructions for dressing:
Place all ingredients in a blender, Bullet or food processor. Pulse until smooth. Store in the fridge in an airtight container. The dressing is good for about a week.
