Tips for success with pea steak

Before you start the recipe, there are 3 things to think about. Read the tips below to succeed with pea steak.

squeeze out as much liquid as possible

In order for the ingredients to stay together, it is important to squeeze as much liquid as possible from the green peas and grated zucchini.
