Apricot has such a bright red color due to the abundance of carotenoids. They improve the condition of the skin, and vision, and also protect cells from aging.
There is a lot of potassium in apricots.

The process of cooking a delicious steak

In advance, 1.5 hours before cooking (or even 24 hours), add all the spices and olive oil to the steak. Wrap it in plastic wrap. Up to 2 hours can be left at room temperature, and put in the refrigerator for a longer period.

Cut the apricot, remove the bones, and cut the flesh into slices. Cut the cucumbers into circles, add to the apricots, pepper, pour lime juice, sprinkle with zest, and leave to marinate while everything else is being prepared.

Heat up a grill pan or an ordinary frying pan, you do not need to pour oil, it is already on the meat. Put the steak and fry, turning every 1.5 minutes.
Place in the oven for 5 minutes or until the desired degree of roasting.
