I don’t eat a lot of meat, but when I do, I really enjoy steak. Steak is high in protein, rich in iron, and if you by lean steak, relatively low in fat too. It’s also gluten and carb-free.
My big issue with steak is that I do not like tough meat. Steak is sometimes tough and chewy because it’s not very good quality. However, more often than not, it’s because I’m not very good at cooking it!
Because of this, I was very excited to discover this easy recipe for sheet pan steak and veggies. Not only is it super-easy to make, it’s also pretty healthy too. It serves six people so it’s ideal as a dinner for the whole family. As an added benefit, it’s low in carbs too so it’s good if you are following a low-carb lifestyle, or just want something light to eat in the evening.
Quick and simple, this is a great dinner that I know you and your family will love.
