Recipes that are all-in-one meals are the best! They make meal planning so easy since you don’t have to worry about what sides to pair with your main course. One-pot recipes are my favorite way to do this, but this style is a close second. And really, a couple of extra dishes to wash isn’t that bad. This Grilled Butternut Squash, Zucchini and Steak with Chimichurri Sauce is an all-in-one meal that needs more than one pan, but I’m okay with that.
A simple chimichurri sauce transforms already tasty grilled butternut squash, zucchini and steak into a truly delicious but quick and easy meal.
A nice steak, fresh vegetables, and herbs make a pretty picture and a delicious meal! I opted for ribeye steaks instead of strip steaks. The NY strip steaks were much bigger and seemed like they would be too much food for one serving. The ribeye steaks turned out to be a good size, and my husband and I were both full by the end of the meal.
This recipe was very easy to make since I had my husband on hand to grill everything. I had everything prepped in 10 minutes. Cooking took the 15 minutes specified, including pre-cooking the squash in the microwave for 6 minutes. I whipped up the chimichurri sauce while everything was grilling, and we had a gorgeous meal made very quickly!
Did I mention how easy this meal was? It’s so perfect for those nights when you feel too tired to cook but you’re still hungry and tired of takeout.
Two things my husband, the grill master LOL, recommends for grilling vegetables are a grill basket and a set of tongs. The grill pan keeps vegetables from falling through the grating, and the tongs make them easy to turn. I bought the grill pan a few years ago, and we use it a lot more than I initially expected. Just like meat, grilled vegetables are delicious too 🙂
