Steak Allemande


How was everyone's weekend?

Ours was pretty fun!  I had to work Saturday night, but I had Sunday off.  We spend the day at a cookout for a friend's birthday.  We played volleyball for the majority of the afternoon - which was extremely fun, but also extremely exhausting!  We definitely weren't ready for it to be Monday though!

So we made allemande sauce last Friday.  Like I said, it is one of my favorite sauces and it goes very well with steak or chicken.  We had ourselves a fancy little steak dinner on Friday night (so much cheaper than going out!) and this is how we put it together! 


2 NY Strip Steaks (or cut of your choice!)
Allemande Sauce, warmed
1/2 lb. brussels sprouts, halved
1/2 lb. red potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for rubbing steaks
salt and pepper, to taste

Light a grill under medium high heat and preheat your oven to 425 F.

In a large bowl, combine the brussels sprouts and potatoes with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spread the vegetables on a baking sheet and roast for about 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Rub olive oil on both sides of steaks.  Season both sides with salt and pepper.  Grill the steaks to desired doneness.  Let rest for 5 minutes.

To plate, place a decent amount of the roasted vegetables on the center of the plate.  Lean steak on top of vegetables.  Finish plate with allemande sauce. 

Voila!  Fancy dinner at home.  And oh. so. easy. 

Hope you guys have a great start to your week!
