No BBQ? No problem! Throw a steak in your cast iron skillet and roast some colourful vegetables to serve along side for dinner
Pan-sear your steak and serve with roasted sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts
The apartment we’ve been living in since returning from Australia last year is fabulous minus one important detail: no balcony. No balcony means no BBQ and no BBQ means no steak, that is until now, when I discovered how amazing (albeit smoky and likely to set off the smoke detector) steak can be when pan-seared in a cast iron skillet.
I absolutely love sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts so they were a perfect and easy side to serve with the steak. Just toss them with oil and sea salt and throw them in the oven to cook while you make the steak.
If you’re making this meal for a special occassion (or have a much larger wine budget than I do) I strongly suggest trying one of the best wines I’ve ever had, Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz. Thanks to Shelly and Adam for sharing such a special treat!
