Balsamic Steak

  • 2 lbs Sirloin Steak Tips

  • 1/2 c balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 c Coconut Aminos

  • 3 garlic cloves minced

Herbed Potatoes

  • 1 lb Butter or Baby Yukon potatoes

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary

  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • 1 bunch asparagus

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 1/2 lemon

  • 3 Tbls Avocado oil, divided


Balsamic Steak

  • Add the steak tips, balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos and garlic into a large bowl. Stir to combine. Cover with cling wrap. Let marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.

Herbed Potatoes

  • Cut the potatoes in half and add them to a medium saucepan, cover with cold water and add 1 tsp salt. Bring to a boil and cook until they become just slightly tender (about 10-15 minutes) and then drain.

  • Once they are dry, toss them with the salt, dried rosemary, dried thyme, dried parsley, garlic powder and pepper.

  • Heat 1 Tbls of the oil in a large cast iron skillet and heat over medium heat. Add in the potatoes in an even layer, letting them crisp up on one side. Stir to crisp up the other sides (about 5 minutes total).


  • Wash and trim the asparagus, cutting 1/2 inch off the bottom.

  • Carefully wipe the pan, using a paper towel. Add 1 Tbls of the oil, keeping the pan at medium heat.

  • Add the asparagus, seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Squeeze lemon over it, stir and remove from the pan.

Next Steps

  • Wipe out the pan again. Add in the remaining 1 Tbls of oil. Turn heat to medium/high.

  • Use a slotted spoon, removing the steak bites out of the marinade, and add them to the pan in an even layer. You might have to do this in batches, because you don't want to overcrowd the pan.

  • Cook the steak bites 2 minutes on one side then flip for another 1-2 minutes. They should get nice and browned and caramelized. DO NOT OVERCOOK!

  • Add a pinch of salt and pepper (about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper) to taste, and remove from the pan.

  • Serve with the crispy potatoes and asparagus.
