Steakhouse dinner fast enough for a midweek dinner with time saving hacks turned into steak and potato salad!
The way to Tom’s heart is steak. Sometimes I make steak for him midweek as a mini celebration to make him smile. But I do not want to spend all the time after work we have together cooking. So I came up with a sheet pan hack for perfect steak in 8 minutes, pantry hacks for flavorful potatoes, and made his faves into a steakhouse potato salad that makes awesome leftovers. Leftovers mean more time after work the next day to chill out. Hope you love this recipe and cheers to getting dinner on the table and still having time for you!
Gratitude Tip While You Cook:
My mission with Chop Happy is to create easy recipe for busy people with a dash of gratitude! Since we all have to be in the kitchen at some point in our day lets use that time to zen out and gain more gratitude.
For the time the soup cooks visualize your dreams as if it is already here. Working on you does not have to be a long drawn out process. It can be as simple as a couple of pages of a motivational book. The perfect book to read to learn more about finding calmness, your dreams and making your wishes a reality is The Secret!
Time Saving Dinner Hacks / Cooking Tips:
- Pantry Hack For Flavorful Potatoes: Use chicken broth, veggie broth, or mushroom broth to boil potatoes or rice. Replace the water with flavorful broth and you will infuse amazing flavor just by boiling.
- Gratitude While Stirring: Use the kitchen as a place for self care. As you stir or chop say what you are grateful for. I do this all the time so that cooking can be a time to recharge.
