Sheet Pan Skirt Steak with Aminos Butter
and roasted brussels sprouts / cauliflower rice
- Cauliflower florets - 12 oz
- Butter - 1 Tbsp
- Steak, skirt, flank, or hanger - 1 1/4 lbs
- Bragg's / coconut aminos - 1/4 cup
- Vinegar, balsamic - 1 Tbsp
- Oil, toasted sesame - 1 Tbsp
- Cilantro - 2 tsp, chopped
- Butter - 4 Tbsp
- Bragg's / coconut aminos - 2 tsp
- Lime juice - 1 tsp
- Brussels sprouts - 1 lb, halved
- Foil - for roasting
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Oil, toasted sesame - 1 tsp
- Lime juice - 2 tsp
- Cauliflower rice - (Skip if made ahead for Monday.) Pulse florets in a food processor until broken up into ‘rice’-sized bits. Cook rice in one of two ways: 1) Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and then fold in butter (portion for steak). Season with some salt and pepper; or 2) Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add butter (portion for steak). Saute cauliflower in heated butter for ~5 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Watch this video for the full how-to on cauliflower rice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Brussels sprouts - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating before continuing with prep.) Slice in half. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
- Marinate steak - Combine steak with aminos (portion for steak), vinegar, and sesame oil (portion for steak). Tenderize with a fork. Marinate for 20 minutes and up to 1 day. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
- Cilantro - Chop cilantro.
- Heat oven to 500F / 260C degrees. Place one oven rack about 6” / 15 cm from the broiler. Place another rack in the lower 1/3 of the oven.
- Line a sheet pan with foil and spread brussels sprouts on the top. Cover tightly on top with foil and steam on the lower rack of the oven for 10 minutes. (Watch this video on roasting vegetables at high temps.)
- Reduce oven to 425F / 218C degrees. Uncover brussels sprouts. Toss with cooking oil and season with some salt and pepper.
- Return pan to the oven and roast until brussels sprouts are dark golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes more.
- Remove brussels sprouts from the oven (leave the foil on the bottom of the pan; it will help prevent the steak from sticking). Set aside. Drizzle sesame oil and squeeze lime juice (portions for brussels sprouts) over top. Cover to keep warm.
- Turn on the oven’s broiler (use the high setting if available).
- Place steak on the same sheet pan that was used to cook the brussels sprouts (discard marinade). Season generously on both sides with some salt and pepper.
- Broil steak on one side until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until cooked to your liking. Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~5 minutes); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~7 minutes). (Note: Be careful when flipping the steak. It is so close to the heating element that it will sizzle and pop as it cooks.)
- Remove steak and allow to rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
- While steak rests, soften butter (portion for aminos butter) in microwave for ~10 seconds. Mash in aminos, lime juice (portions for aminos butter), and cilantro. If you like spice, add in a few drops of your favorite hot sauce.
- If cauliflower rice was made ahead, reheat in the microwave.
- Slice steak and serve it over cauliflower rice with brussels sprouts on the side. Serve aminos butter over everything. Enjoy!
This is gonna be a regular. Already loved miso butter (i make it with green onion), so love another use for it. Makes the brussels sprouts taste really really good!0 Helpful
Love the miso-butter with the steak! Great way to make potatoes and brussels sprouts, too.0 Helpful
Was kind of bland. Not sure if we did something wrong? Kids liked it, though.0 Helpful
Fun twist on a traditional meal. Easy to make and very flavorful!0 Helpful
The vegetarian version of this was delicious- and the covered/roasted Brussels sprouts were the best we've had.0 Helpful
I didn't tenderize the steak well enough so it was pretty tough. But the flavors were amazing. I made broccoli and sweet potato according the the instructions and they turned out great. I want to find more things to put this miso butter on.0 Helpful
