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.
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.
