Steak, Sweet Potatoes, and Spinach

Posted Feb 15 2012 8:26am

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day.

Vinnie and I had a nice dinner together. He gave me a card, I gave him a card and some chocolates were exchanged too!

I have this problem with wanting to try every chocolate in the box, but because I know how bad they are for me , I just nibble on each one. Everyone else gets mad, but oh well!

And now today is WIAW!!! It is very fitting for WIAW to be celebrating our LOVE for veggies!!
Thank you Jenn .

I have been trying to incorporate more veggies into my meals, but it’s not as easy as I would of thought. I am pretty uncreative when it comes to my eats. I stick to what I know and like. Hence, the sweet potatoes and spinach.

One package of spinach does not go to far when sautéed…

Spinach Sautee
1 package of spinach
1 garlic clove
2 tsp of EVOO

Heat EVOO and garlic. Once garlic is browned add spinach and let wilt. Stir the spinach to make sure the bottom leaves don’t burn.

Sweet Potato Hash
1 medium size sweet potato
1/2 onion
1/2 tbsp of EVOO

In a sauté pan, caramelize the onion with the EVOO. Add the sweet potato and let cook for 10 min, continuously stirring throughout.

Soy Sauce Agave Steak

IngredientsSoy Sauce
Agave
Garlic
Salt and Pepper

The amount of ingredients will depend on the size of the steak. Make sure you have enough, to cover the steak. In a big bowl, combine all the ingredients, add the steak and let it sit for 20 min, soaking in the marinate. Heat the grill. Once steak is ready to cook, grill the steak for 5 minutes on each side.
Let it cool for a couple minutes before slicing. Viola!
