A straightforward kid-friendly meal that comes together quickly and features 100% Canadian AAA Angus Beef Strip Loin from Walmart Canada.
St. Patrick’s is coming and since I had very few appropriate recipes for it, I felt behind on getting some quality recipes to you. Ones that are crazy good but with minimal effort and get your kids excited about dinner. An Irish dinner to be specific. This Guinness Beef and Onion Pot Pie is a delicious and easy way to embrace Irish foods without diving into green food dye head first.

I’ve got another 15 minute meal alert! That’s right, from start to finish this One Pot Tex-Mex Rice is ready to rock the dinner table and your family’s taste buds. Thanks to Minute Rice’s Whole Grain Brown Rice that is ready to eat in 10 minutes, I’ve got a 6 ingredient recipe to fuel the family. And only 1 pot to clean. Greatest weekday ever! Even the tiniest pickiest eaters will jump onboard to devour this dish (well mine did anyways).
This is the type of Sunday supper that I adore. Mostly hands off, but 110% satisfying and everyone always eats it with glee. Belgian Beef Stew is stewing beef meat and beer cooked down together to form tender meat and the most delightful gravy (as I know it anyways). There’s something about meat, gravy and potatoes that makes dinner such a pleasant event in our house. So, basically we’re kind of weird, but that is totally okay with us.
It’s June. Already. It’s warm, lovely, and time to celebrate Dad. My husband loves to eat, just like me, but his food choice for celebration is always steak. Without fail. As I was perusing my various forms of food inspiration (magazines, fellow bloggers, etc.) I came across a veal-rubbed recipe. Only I thought, why not steak? Steak and mushrooms (porcini) go wonderfully together. And what would happen if I topped it with some goat cheese shavings? Magic, that’s what happened.
My husband got this dinner a week and half early, but I literally had to remove the cutting board to get him to stop eating the steak. It’s a good thing we’re both active people otherwise our waists would be large. Ok, you got me, I’m pregnant and mine is large. But it’s temporary (here’s hoping!).
I used flank steak, because we had some and we love it. It’s affordable, quick, and easy to cook. You can grill it or give it a good sear in a large skillet; either way, it turns out tasty. I’m not adapt at using the BBQ and I didn’t want my husband to have to grill his own celebration dinner, so I pan seared the flank steak until medium-rare. Feel free to cook longer for well done or toss the steak onto the BBQ if you’re the master of that domain. Use any type of grilling steak that your guys enjoys, strip loin, rib eye, NY, etc will all be delicious with this rub.
I’d recommend pairing with vegetables of your choice. I did quick boiled corn with butter, salt, pepper, and some lime zest, as well as roasted asparagus. Our starch was this mind-blowing good Crispy Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes recipe that can be found here. Only, I switch up the type of potatoes and used the new baby potatoes.
Rub recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine
2 lbs flank steak (one large piece)
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup porcini mushroom powder (grind up 3/4 cup dried mushrooms using a spice mill or a mortar and pestle)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil
garnishes (optional): goat cheese, caramelized onions, chopped chives.
Combine ground red pepper flakes, porcini powder, sugar, kosher salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.
Rub porcini powder mixture all over steak and set aside.
Heat butter and oil in a large skillet (cast iron would be ideal) over medium heat. Add steak to the hot pan and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, flipping once when the bottom is browned and crisp.
Remove from pan and let rest for 2 minutes.
Thinly slice and top with any desired garnishes.
Enjoy and Happy Father’s Day!!
