Garlic Roasted Steak and Asparagus

Hi everyone!

I hope that everyone had an awesome holiday! Mine was super low key with just my mom and Brother.

Generally when I meal prep I tend to go with chicken because it’s so easy, but this week I went with red meat all week! I made some stuffed peppers for dinner last night, and I have one left over today. But I wanted to feature my main dish of the week, which is roasted garlic steak bites and some roasted asparagus.

Now, I don’t really have a method to how I cook, I just go with how I’m feeling at the time. And I also don’t measure out when I’m cooking, this is why I suck at baking. So I’m just going to give you the ingredients I used, and you can go with the levels you like!

For the steak, there were some NY strip pieces on sale at stop and shop so I just got a pound of that. I like to use my wok pan for red meat, I feel it cooks it best. I like my steak on the medium rare side, so I just cook it till I feel it’s at the level I want.

To season, I used minced garlic, salt, garlic powder, a little bit of ground black pepper and some red Cheyenne pepper.

I love asparagus, it’s one of my favorite veggies. I pre heat the oven on 375. I always line the pan with tin foil. Just cut off the stock ends of the asparagus, toss it in olive oil, garlic powder, and salt. Sometimes I will add thyme or oregano, this time I didn’t. Lay the pieces flat across the pan and pop it in the oven to roast until it’s the consistency you like. I love mine crunchy, so I tend to cook it longer. I shake it every 5-7 minutes just so it doesn’t stick. Sometimes, depending on the quality of the asparagus, I’ll put a low broil on to crisp it up before I take it out.

If you try this recipe, please comment below and let me know what I think!
