  1. Broccoli / Garlic - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating first.) Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Steak - Tenderize steak with a fork and season on both sides with salt and black pepper. Generous seasoning is the key to flavor in this simple seared steak, so feel free to add some more salt and black pepper if the amounts listed don't seem like enough.


  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Bake sweet potato fries according to package directions.
  3. Toss broccoli and garlic with cooking oil (portion for vegetables). Spread on a sheet pan and season with some salt and pepper. Transfer to oven and roast until tender, shaking the pan halfway through cooking, ~20 minutes.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for steak) and then steak to heated pan. Cook steak, without moving it, until one side is well seared, ~5 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for 4 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover with foil, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare; 4 to 7 minutes for medium; 8 to 10 minutes for well-done.
  5. Set steak aside and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  6. When broccoli is finished, squeeze lemon juice over top.
  7. Serve steak with sweet potato fries and broccoli on the side. Enjoy!

A nice lunch, but not hearty enough for dinner. I enjoyed the ricotta and chard! I haven’t eaten those in combination before.

It was really good! I've never had a Reuben sandwich before, so I wasn't sure. I bought canned corned beef, but it seemed to still taste great. Also used frozen Red Robin fries, yum!

Loved the sweet potato fries, but I needed sauerkraut with more kick.

Delicious and easy! I made as recipe indicated and was amazing!!! I did struggle locating corned beef, but found in the packaged lunch meat section so used that. I will definitely make again.

Subbed pastrami since we couldn’t find corned beef and havarti since we are not Swiss fans. Pretty tasty!

Quick and delicious! I subbed Greek yogurt for mayo in the dressing to lighten this up a bit, and subbed pastrami for corned beef so I wouldn't have to go to a second store.
