Busy Night Steak Dinner

This is my “go to” way of preparing a steak dinner when I am very busy. It is not the fastest way to cook a steak, but it gives you a lot of time to do other things while your dinner is cooking. Also, roasting red meat is way healthier than frying or barbecuing. This goes well with a BIG salad.

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, coconut oil or butter
  • 2 8 oz Steaks at room temperature
  • 1 large Red Onion halved and cut into thick slices
  • 2 large Carrots quartered and broken up by hand
  • 1 whole zucchini halved and roughly chopped
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • cracked pepper to taste
  • Red Wine Vinegar to taste (taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Quickly prepare the vegetables.
  3. Put the steaks on a cutting board, pour a little oil on them and rub it in by hand. Flip them over and repeat. Season with salt and pepper, flip and repeat.
  4. Add the remaining oil or butter to a baking pan. Add the vegetables to the pan and spread out evenly.
  5. Lay the steaks on top and roast for 15 minutes.
  6. Flip the steaks over with a fork and roast until desired level of doneness.
  7. They will be medium rare at 30 minutes and medium well at 40 minutes.
  8. At 30 minutes, either remove from the oven and let rest or flip the steaks over again. When you remove the steaks to rest, allow the vegetables to roast for another 5 minutes.
  9. A splash of red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar makes a nice addition.
  10. If you find un-caramelized fat unappetizing then trim it off and fry it with some eggs for breakfast tomorrow.
  11. Taste, season and serve with the roasted vegetables and a generous salad.
