"Steak Dinner"

Ian and I always laugh at the term "Steak Dinner." You know how people use it to describe a really shi-shi night out ... like "Oooh, he took me to a Steak Dinner."

What is a Steak Dinner?
Is any dinner a Steak Dinner if you order steak?
What if your partner orders shrimp? Has he/she ruined it?

I'm so confused.

REGARDLESS.
I cooked a great Steak Dinner here at home the other night.
Here's the recipe.

I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and set a burner to medium high. I rubbed two steaks (sent to us from Omaha Steaks from my beautiful Aunt Karen) with my favorite steak seasoning from Aldi. A container is $0.99 and it's seriously the best.

I browned some butter in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop and seared each side until it was nice and golden brown.



Then, into the oven the whole cast iron skillet went for eight minutes. Next time I will probably start checking them at 6-7 minutes ... just depends on how done you like your steak.

Roasted cabbage was an easy side for this meal. It was left over from the other night so I just reheated it in the oven in foil, but basically you just cut cross-sections of your cabbage, lay on a foil-lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and shake on MORE of that steak seasoning (we seriously use it all the time) and roast until browned and softened. 



Also, I firmly believe that if you lay your meat over a vegetable like I did above, it looks totally restaurant-worthy. Try it!

And lastly, for our salad, I used the failproof trick of making sure it contains FCN ... a fruit, a cheese, and a nut. In this case I went with diced apples, sliced almonds, and goat cheese. I made a vinaigrette from blood orange olive oil and red wine vinegar. 


And that's a wrap! An easy dinner, healthy too.

  2. YUM! I am doing WHOLE30 right now and I can totally swing this. Replace the butter with ghee and just season with salt and pepper. Totally going to try it!

  3. have you tried the steak with the herbed butter that Carolina charm posted about???? It is INSANE. And we love the ALDI seasoning too:) we put it on everything. I made burgers in the oven last week with the seasoning and my hubs said they were as good as if on the grill!

  4. This looks so good. I love that this is low carb, too. I completely copied your Supper Club menu for my Bunco group and it was a huge success. I think I may have to try this, too. I've never been to Aldi because my husband seems to think I won't be impressed with it, but I may have to try it for that steak seasoning.
    And, I totally agree about "stacking" your meat on top of the veggie. It's all about the presentation. :)
