Who doesn’t love steak? When doing my meal planning and deciding what I’m going to make for the week, I always run through my list of easy go-to meals and then I move on to the more difficult things. With my family deciding to eat healthier this year, I have been a lot more conscious of what I’m making. Finding healthier substitutes for a lot of my recipes have been a huge problem for me due to the fact that a lot of brands DON’T have a gluten, sugar or healthier substitute for many of the major ingredients.
What I love most about Harris Teeter is their Harris Teeter Organics brand. Many of the produce is locally sourced, which means they are grown right here in the region (most of the time the state). The Harris Teeter Organics brand has expanded to not just fresh fruits and veggies, but they have everyday items such a condiments and juice, they really have everything covered. So finding alternatives to ingredients has been a lot simplier over the last few weeks. Which means Jay’s favorite recipes can now be made with a healthier subsitute and we don’t have to worry about making it a cheat day. Plus the kids are learning how to substitute certain foods.
Oven Roasted Green Bean & Potatoes
I love green beans. One of my favorite dishes is roasted potatoes with green beans and mushrooms. The fresher the veggies the better they are–right?
1 package of Harris Teeter Organics green beans
6 large cut up red skin potatoes in quarters
1 pkg zesty Italian dressing mix
1 stick melted butter
I added the ingredients to a gallon bag and poured the dressing in. I mixed it up–you now because I was feeling fancy…
- In a 9×13 pan, place chicken breasts in the center, green beans on one side and potatoes on the other.
- Sprinkle Italian dressing mix over the top. Drizzle melted butter over it.
- Cover it with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Stuffed Flank Steak
Makes: 6 servings
Prep: 20 minutes
Roast: at 425 degrees F. for 35 minutes
Broil: 10 minutes
- 1 flank steak (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
- 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
- 2 tablespoons seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1 egg yolk
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
To prepare filling:
In a medium-size bowl, combine spinach, cheese, peppers, bread crumbs, egg yolk, 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and the pepper. Season steak with an additional 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and pepper. Press filling onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides.
Roll up steak to enclose filling, beginning on a short side; the grain of the meat will be running from left to right. Tuck any loose filling back into ends. Tie the steak with cotton twine at 2-inch intervals to secure. Rub outside with oil, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each garlic salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees F for 35 minutes, then increase heat to broil and broil for 10 minutes, turning once. Let meat rest 15 minutes. Remove twine, slice and serve.
