A simple and delicious dinner that is whole family-approved.

Although I mostly work from home these days, that still hasn’t resulted in having scads of “free” time, surprisingly enough. So when I can make a dinner that is a one dish meal, which means less work and less dishes, well, I’m a happy camper.

My kids are pretty fickle about steak. Sometimes they’ll seriously inhale it, and sometimes they’ll swear up and down how much they hate it. Frustrating for sure, and that basically means I’m rolling the dice any time I’m making steak for dinner.

And here I am, rolling the dice.

Although I think I overcooked the meat by a minute or two (I tend to like it more on the pink side), they surprisingly ate it. They didn’t want to seat it the next day, but, well, that’s the breaks.

Because you are basically throwing everything onto a pan and letting the oven do most of the work for you, this is a crazy simple recipe to make, and bonus points for not requiring any hunt-all-over-town ingredients. And I’ll tell you, the marinade … it’s seriously slurpable. Like I would totally make it just to roast the vegetables alone with it next time. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it, so even if you’re vegetarian, skip the steak and make the rest of the recipe just to get your taste buds on the marinade.

Yeah, it’s that good.

A million years ago, when my ex-husband and I were dating, I had a truffle recipe in heavy rotation. I remember making it for his sister and his dad when we were deep in the throes of courtship. You […]
