Every once in a while I have a craving for a steak, and this week was one of those occasions. Steak usually means grilling, but it’s just been either too hot or rainy. Neither are great for being outside. Oh, and my grill is still broken. Steak and Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner to the rescue! One pan, no outdoor grilling, sides are included, and it’s ready in about 30 minutes.
Perfectly seasoned sirloin steak, tender asparagus, and cherry tomatoes prepared together on just one sheet pan. SO easy and SO darn delicious!
This is a simple sheet pan dinner recipe, and the list of ingredients reflects that. I had most of the ingredients on hand (basil, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, butter, and garlic), so I only had to pick up the meat and vegetables. Unsurprisingly, the steaks were the most expensive part of the meal at +/-$7 each. The items I had to buy came out to $21.95 or just under $5.50 per serving. Not bad at all for a steak dinner!
This might be the easiest steak dinner I’ve ever made. Total time was 30 minutes, and 9 minutes of that was prep work and waiting for the oven to preheat. I had the vegetables and steaks seasoned and the basil garlic butter blended by the time my oven reached 400 degrees.
One thing I found helpful that wasn’t listed in the instructions was my olive oil sprayer. I tried drizzling the olive oil over the vegetables then mixing them on the sheet pan, but I didn’t think they were coated thoroughly enough. A quick spray of olive oil took care of that, and my vegetables didn’t dry out.
I also skipped garnishing the cooked meal with extra basil and red pepper flakes. I felt the amount of basil the recipe called for would be plenty since dry herbs are more potent than fresh. And I also used the full 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes on the steaks (1/4 teaspoon per side).
Otherwise, I followed the instructions for this sheet pan dinner as listed. I don’t think my vegetables charred as much as the ones in the original post, but they were still cooked through.
