Sheet Pan Steak and Veggies
Special to the Tribune

Want to know why sheet-pan cooking is all the rage? Well, it’s one complete meal cooked on one sheet pan all at one time.

It doesn’t get any easier that, and the combinations are endless – steak and potatoes, fish and fresh veggies, sausage and peppers to name just a few.

Sheet-pan cooking is the perfect method for busy families who want a delicious dinner on the table quickly and with very little cleanup. Here, I’m sharing the recipe for a flavorful T-bone steak and veggies.

For the steak, I created a flavor bomb with herbed butter. Then I tossed the veggies lightly in oil and seasonings. Throw them all together on one sheet pan and you’ve got a main meal in just minutes.

Before you begin, here are a couple of my favorite sheet pan cooking tips:

1. If you really want to make sure that your steak has a nice sear on the outside, you can cook your steak in a hot skillet to sear before finishing it off in the oven to desired temperatures.

2. If using potatoes, cut them into wedges or smaller pieces, and cook in microwave for two minutes to soften. Then, add them to the other vegetables.

Sheet Pan Steak and Veggies Ingredients:

Protein of your choice (steak, chicken, fish)

3-4 or more fresh veggies (1-2 cups each)

Olive oil to coat veggies

Salt, pepper and seasonings of your choice to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Coat a sheet pan lightly with olive oil.

Season your steak with salt and pepper.

Combine your seasonal veggies in a bowl.

Add your favorite seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic salt, etc.).

Drizzle with some olive oil and then toss to combine.

When sheet pan is hot, lay proteins on (The hotter the pan, the better of a sear you’ll get on your steak.)

Lay the seasoned veggies right next to the protein.

Return pan to oven and cook until proteins and vegetables are cooked to desired doneness.

Herbed butter:

1 cube (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

1 teaspoon fresh garlic minced

2 teaspoons fresh or dried herbs of your choice. (All herbs combined should equal 2 teaspoons)

1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)

Directions:

Soften butter just enough to combine herbs, garlic and salt.

Mix together, spoon into container. Or, spoon herbed butter on parchment paper, cover and roll into a log and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes, then slice!

Place a pat of the herbed butter over top of steak after cooked.
