Who doesn’t love a simple entree? Something you can throw together real quick and forget about while you make the side dishes. Something that only requires a few minutes of your attention while its cooking and won’t require a whole lot of clean-up afterwards. That’s definitely my favorite kind of recipe! Steaks are an obvious choice when you’re looking for something quick and easy for your protein (although most types of fish are equally low-maintenance, steaks tend to be more affordable). I usually coat mine in garlic and salt (a la my Garlic Steak with Lemon-Pepper Asparagus) and fry them up in a pan, but I recently came into a nice big harvest of rosemary and have been putting it in just about everything. When looking for a flavor to pair with it for these Balsamic-Rosemary Steaks, I vacillated between balsamic vinegar and lemon and think you could use either one in these if you aren’t a fan of balsamic vinegar (gasp!). Just swap the vinegar for an equal amount of lemon juice and you’re good to go!
Balsamic-Rosemary Steaks pair well with:
- Roasted Cauliflower Soup
- Mashed Plantains with Bacon (Mofongo)
- Mashed Roasted Garlic Sweet Potatoes
- Bacon Braised Collard Greens
- Roasted Autumn Vegetables
- Roasted Beets
- Bacon Apple Salad with Lemon-Ginger Dressing
- Rainbow Beet Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Keep your household healthy, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my journey to health-consciousness actually began with making my own cosmetics and cleaning products when I was in college. If you’ve got sensitive skin like I do, can’t stand the smell of commercial cleaners, or are just looking for cheaper or more eco-friendly alternatives, making your own household products is easier than you might think. A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
