One Pan Wonders: Better Than a Steakhouse Steak and Balsamic Veggies
This one pan wonder steak dinner is probably my very favorite out of all my one pan wonder dinners. It’s a sure way to impress whoever you’re trying to impress. I’m not joking when I say it’s better than a steakhouse steak. This is how I cook all my steaks. Not only is it super simple, but it’s wonderfully delicious and flavorful. Letting your steak “rest” is part of the secret – this allows time for the juices to absorb and creates an amazingly tender and juicy steak. You’ve got to try it out and see for yourself. It may very well become your new favorite meal, too!
One Pan Wonders: Better than a Steakhouse Steak and Balsamic Veggies
2 porterhouse steaks ,1 pound each, about 1 to 1 ½ inches thick (other cuts good for broiling are: t-bone, ribeye, sirloin, top loin, eye round),
1 onion, cut in half and sliced
6 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 fresh garlic bulb, skin left on, cloves separated
2-4 T olive, coconut oil or butter
Grill seasoning, to taste (or salt and pepper to taste)
balsamic vinegar for drizzling
2 T butter
Optional ingredients: fresh chives, parsley, horseradish
Preheat your broiler, with rack 6 inches from the heat. On a rimmed baking pan, toss the onion, mushrooms, carrot, and garlic cloves with oil. Arrange your steak on the sheet and season steak and veggies with grill seasoning or salt and pepper. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the veggies and steak.
Broil for 10 – 12 minutes for medium rare steak (no need to flip for medium rare). Take the pan out of the oven and immediately put a pat or two of butter on top of the steak. Cover the whole pan with foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
After the 10 minutes is up, remove the pulp from the roasted garlic cloves and spread over the steak and veggies. Top with fresh chives or any additional toppings. Enjoy!
*If you like your steaks done more than medium rare, follow these guidelines:
Medium: 7 minutes, flip steaks and veggies, broil for 7 more minutes
Well: 10 minutes, flip steaks and veggies, broil for 10 more minutes
Cover with foil and let rest for at least 5 minutes.
