Ingredients for Hanger Steaks

Low calorie hanger steak marinades can add lots of flavor and help tenderize meat… if you do it the right way. Below you will learn how to do so in my low calorie cooking tips.

Low Calorie Tips for Hanger Steak with Chimichurri:

  • Marinate in Citrus Juice: Skip all the oil and marinate the hanger steaks in lime juice. It will helps tenderize the meat, without adding 100’s of extra calories and lots of extra fat.
  • Use Olive Oil Spray: Of course, removing all the oil from the marinade will mean we need some oil to stop the hanger steaks from sticking to the grill. Olive oil spay lets off a fine mist and saves 100’s of calories.
  • Skip the Oil in Chimichurri: My popular chimichurri sauce has NO OIL in it! It’s delicious and flavorful, and just 8 calories!
