Veggie Steak Skillet

Best of both worlds- meat and yummy veggie

This one skillet meal is easy and makes great leftovers! Simple but lots of flavor.

 

Servings – 4

1 lb Flat iron steak, 1/2” cubed

1 Red pepper, 1/2” chopped

1 Yellow pepper, 1/2” chopped

1 Green pepper, 1/2” chopped OR Yellow Onion

2 Large sweet potato, 1/2” chopped, peel on

3 Cloves garlic finely chopped

4 Green Onions, chopped

1/4 c Cilantro

2 TB Olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Optional- cayenne or cajun seasoning

Directions-

After chopping up potatoes, place in microwave safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. Take out and stir, repeat another 3 minutes. This helps soften so they cook faster in skillet. You want them aldente. Too soft and they get mushy.

Place 1 TB olive in large skillet on medium heat. Add steak chunks and dash of salt and pepper. Saute for 5 or so minutes. Until steak is browned all the way around.. I like my steak to still be pink on inside. Once cooked, remove with slotted spoon. Leave grease in pan.

Add potatoes, garlic, and additional TB of olive oil. Let saute for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add peppers. Saute for 5 minutes.

Stir in steak and saute for addtional 5 minutes. Option to sprinkle with Cajun seasoning or cayenne pepper in you want a little kick.

Sprinkle on your green onions and cilantro.

I love to add a dollop of the Greek Goddess Dressing for fresh flavor

New Recipe! Grilled Halloumi and Veggie Salad
untitled-20.jpg

Ok- for all the Brits reading my blog, Halloumi ain't no thang. It's seems to be used regularly as a substitute for an animal protein. For those Americans reading my blog, the best way I can describe Halloumi is it's like a large cheese curd. It's squeaky, salty, and AMAZING. I am not sure if it's readily available in the States as I never knew what it was when I was still living there but I would imagine a more high end grocery store with a strong cheese section may have it. Otherwise any protein is a great choice. My husband doesn't believe it's a meal unless meat is included so I also made with grilled chicken. 


Recipe Serves 4

Ingredients-

2 250g package of Halloumi, cut into 1/2" thick slices

1 Eggplant, cut into 1/2" slices

1 Zucchini, Cut with mandolin

8 Sprigs Asparagus

1 Portabello Mushroom, 1/2" slices

1 Red Pepper, Cut into Large Chunks

1/2 Red Onion, 1/2" slices

2 Garlic Cloves, minced

1/4 c Olive Oil

1/4 c Balsalmic Vinegar

1 Tsp Dried Oregano

1 Tsp Dried Basil

1 Tsp Dried Parsley

1/2 Tsp Pepper

1/2 Tsp Salt


Directions-

Add olive oil, vinegar, and dried herbs, minced garlic, and S&P to gallon ziplock bag. 

Add sliced veggies to marinate. Allow to marinate for an hour.

After an hour, place veggies on heated grill. Watch closely. Turn veggies after 3 minutes or until they have begun to have a nice grill mark on one side.

Grill for another 3 minutes on opposing side. 

As soon as you turn over veggies, add Halloumi to grill. Cook each side 3 minutes. 

Remove everything from grill and place variety of veggies on a bed of mixed greens. 

Top with Halloumi and add additional oil and vinegar to taste and enjoy!
