If you’re going to cook a Steak, cook a Steak!

In our opinion when it comes to steak, there king of all is a large portion cut of great quality Angus Ribeye Steak! We were lucky enough to find a great Angus Ribeye Steak with a Marble Score of 5+ and it tasted phenomenal!

When you’re cooking a Steak of such high quality you need to treat it with respect. After all, it cost a fair bit of cash so it’s critical that it’s cooked perfectly. Our recipe has got you covered, with a surefire technique to guarantee a perfectly cooked steak every time

Our next Steak dish is slightly less traditional, yet packed with such unbelievable flavor

This is a recipe that we experimented a bit with during its creation, as it was a combination of other amazing recipes that we know and love. As it turns out, this one became a phenomenal dish in its own right. This recipe is for our delicious Cajun Steak and Grits

We use a beautiful cut of NY Strip Steak which has been seasoned with a Cajun Spiced Dry Rub for a minimum of 2 hours (preferably, marinate it overnight if you’ve got the time). It’s then cooked to perfection and sits atop our classic Cheesy Grits. To add to the decadence, we’ve topped those beautiful Grits with a Creamy Mushroom Sauce with Roasted Bell Peppers. It’s flavor overload, just the way we like it!

For these epic Steak dishes, we’re going to need some sides, fast!

We’ve got you covered for sides in this meal plan. A whopping 4 side dishes and sauces for you to enjoy as you’ve enjoying Steak week with us

Kicking it off is our amazing Spicy Chimichurri Sauce, one of the most popular sauces to enjoy with Steak from all over the world. Fresh herbs mixed in with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, and Garlic along with a kick of spice care of some spicy Jalapenos is what this sauce is all about. It’s so easy to prepare too, just blend all those ingredients together and you’ve got an amazing Spicy Chimichurri Sauce to pair with your Steak

A healthy Vegetable Side Dish that packs a punch of flavor

The best side dishes are ones that are simple to make yet taste delicious. Few side dishes are better when it comes to ticking off this criteria than our amazing Chinese Garlic Broccolini. In under 10 minutes you’ll have a beautiful and healthy blanched Broccolini dish ready to be devoured. It’s flavored with Scallions, Chilis, Sesame Oil and, of course, loads of Garlic. There’s a reason this is one of the most popular side dishes across Asia. We tried it with steak and guess what? It’s an awesome paring

It can’t be Steak week without sharing a great Potato side dish now would it? One of our all-time favorite potato side dishes, and perhaps one of our favorite Potato recipes in general is our Cheesy Potatoes au Gratin recipe. Decadence is an understatement with this dish. Thinly sliced layers of Potatoes are drenched in Cream and Cheese then baked to a beautiful, golden finish. It’s a great side dish, but quite frankly – you could make this dish on its own for dinner and you’ll be eating well!

Rounding out the Side Dishes is Mac and Cheese. But, with a twist

You don’t need to tell us that Mac and Cheese is the perfect side dish to have with Steak. We’ve got an unblemished record of consecutive orderings of Mac and Cheese at Steakhouses we’ve visited. For our Steak and Sides Meal Plan we’re serving up Mac and Cheese with a twist: Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Roasted Cauliflower brings an immensely rich flavor from this amazing Vegetable. By itself it’s a worthy side dish. However, what’s better than to drown it in a Cheesy, Béchamel Sauce! You’ve got a simply delicious Side Dish to round out the weekly meal plan
