{ Steak & Veggie Bowl }

Has it really been nearly four months since my last post?? Time flies when you are busy! I never meant to let this blog slip out from under me, but school and home life will do that to you--I guess. Nice excuse, right? Well, that doesn't matter now because I'm BACK! We started our third round of the Whole30 on January 1st. Which means there is a lot of cooking and food preparing going on in this household. It only makes sense to post what we are eating here, as we have so many of you have been asking for recipes. This recipe is comfort food at it's best...I made this recipe up as I went along, so this will be my best interpretation of it. I don't think you can really mess meat and veggies up--at least too bad. Feel free to play around with this recipe and adapt it to your liking. Enjoy!
  • 1-2 lbs grassfed steak
  • 1 lb butternut squash
  • 1/2-1 bundle of asparagus
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Olive or Coconut Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Any other seasoning you desire
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Start by cutting your butternut squash into chunks, wash and cut the ends off your asparagus. (If you have a Harmon's near by--you can purchase the squash already cut into chunks, back in the produce department. Such a time saver!!) In a ziploc bag, add the veggies, some olive oil, seasonings, 1 garlic glove and toss around until well coated. (Tip: save the same ziploc for steak!)
  2. In a 9 x 11" glass baking dish, place the coated veggies, cover with tinfoil and bake for about 15-20 mins, checking and stiring throughout to ensure you don't overcook. You will know it's done when you can fork a squash easily. 
  3. Towards the end of your veggies roasting in the oven, cut your steak into bite sized pieces (I bought mine at Harmon's pre-cut...again, huge time saver!) In the same ziploc you tossed the veggies in, add a drizzle or two of olive oil, some pepper and 1 clove of garlic. Toss until well coated.
  4. Heat a pan to medium-high heat, add steak. Sear both sides and cook to desired liking. Once cooked how you like, remove the (cooked/done) veggies, add to the mix all together and serve.
