Easy Weeknight Dinners: Steak with Watercress and Oranges

March 20, 2012

Steak with Blood Orange & Watercress Salad

This recipe has to be one of my favorite weeknight meals (or weekend meals if I’m super-hungry). It comes together quickly, with a few ingredients, and I feel somewhat healthy and light with the salad portion replacing my usual baked potato and garlic bread side for steak.

To start, select your favorite cut of beef – filet, strip, ribeye, and sirloin would all work here. Season it simply with salt and pepper after you’ve rubbed with a bit of oil to keep it from sticking to your grill or grill pan. (more…)

Quick and Easy: Steak, Baked Potato, Garlic Bread

Steak on the grill

Steak, baked potato, garlic bread. It was one of the first meals I learned to cook, and throughout middle school, this was often my late lunch. I eventually branched out into chicken, baked potato, and garlic bread, but I hold a special affinity for a bacon-wrapped fillet.

This meal comes together in no time, because there’s not much to it. You can grill or broil the steak, the baked potato can be cooked in the microwave, and the garlic bread can either be baked (in which case, it takes the longest of anything to cook) or you can simply broil it quickly at the end.
