  1. Par-cook cauliflower by placing into a microwave-safe container. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.
  2. If making steak on grill: Preheat grill to 500F / 260C degrees. Clean grates and brush with some oil. Place steak over direct heat. Sear steak for ~4 minutes on each side with the cover closed. Move steak to indirect heat and cook until it reaches desired level of doneness. Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~6 minutes); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~10 minutes).
  3. If making steak on stovetop / oven: Heat grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Brush with cooking oil. Place steak onto hot pan. Sear steak for ~4 minutes on each side. Lower heat to medium, cover with foil, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare; another 4 to 7 minutes for medium; 8 to 10 minutes for well-done.
  4. While steak cooks, heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then chopped bok choy to the pan. Saute for ~3 minutes and then add sliced garlic and cauliflower. Saute veggies until they’re tender but still crispy, another 3 to 5 minutes. Finish with aminos. Season with salt and pepper and some lime juice if desired.
  5. After steak is done, rest for ~5 minutes, keeping covered with foil, before slicing against the grain. Enjoy steak and bok choy and cauliflower, spreading aminos-lime butter over steak and veggies. Add more lime juice to veggies as needed.
