Recipe: Steak and "Potatoes" - The time I owned the paleo diet.

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

After my failed paleo attempt, I knew I had to redeem myself. I went to my fallback recipe; steak & mashed potatoes (cauliflower potatoes, but still...). The cauliflower mashed potatoes were just as good and satisfying as they were last time. Again, if I could eat them every night, I would. Steak recipe go! 


  • 2 steaks. I bought filets. Don't they look delish. 
  • Salt and pepper
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Onion - cut into slices (they cook down a LOT so make them chunky) 

How to make: 
  1. Heat the oven to 410 degrees
  2. Place about a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan. (a cast-iron pan is totally necessary here!) 
  3. Heat the oil up to medium-hot! 
  4. Salt and pepper the steaks. (Last night I put some meat seasoning on them, did not like it, do not recommend) 
  5. Put the steaks in the hot oil, and sear both sides for 2 minutes each side. 
  6. Then place all the mushrooms and onions in the pan, and place the entire pan in the oven. (hence, why a cast-iron pan is necessary) 
  7. Cook for 12 minutes (we had to cook for 15, damn elevation)
  8. Let sit for about 5 minutes (covered in foil) to let all the juices soak in. 
  9. Enjoy! Hmm, my mouth is watering thinking about it.  
what's that saying? happy fiancé' happy life. Cheers to that.
