Kids Cook! Get your kids involved in the kitchen by having them help out with this recipe. Here’s what they can do!* While you're preparing the onions and measuring the spicy stuff, have your child measure the yogurt. Once all mixed in large sealed zipper bag, have them gently coat the steak with the marinade.

Dietitian's Tip: Any steak can be great as long as the right cooking method is used. Less tender cuts of meat are popular because they tend to be less costly and they are often the leanest too. Be sure follow the lead on the package label to know how to cook your steak properly. Look for words like "marinate", "grill", "oven" or "stir-fry" before the name of the cut - that's a great guide for how to cook it.
  • 1 cup (250 mL) plain yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) EACH minced ginger, fresh lemon juice & curry powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) EACH chili powder and salt
