Grass-fed Ribeye Steaks | Baked Sweet Potatoes | Green Beans

Where's the beef? Ha ha...okay my husband rushes home on beef night. I got a great deal on these grass-fed Ribeye steaks. They were normally $15 a pound and I bought them for $4.99 a pound! They were just a special for the week. I only bought two steaks for the four of us, because we still like to eat the right portions even on beef night.
Grass-Fed Ribeye Steaks
Pull these babies out of the fridge about 15 minutes before you are going to grill them. 

  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • your favorite herb blend
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper
Preheat the grill on Medium. Rub the steaks with a little extra-virgin olive oil. Season generously, but easy with the salt. Cook the steak for about 10 minutes. We cook on one side for 8 minutes and then flip for 2 minutes.

Baked Sweet Potatoes
If you don't know how to bake a sweet potato you are missing out! They are delicious. I love mine plain. The kiddos and my husband enjoy them with cinnamon and a little brown sugar or maple syrup.
  • Sweet potatoes, go ahead and make the whole bag (you can use them for lunch, or put them in the freezer, they freeze well and then you have a side already done for later on in the month).
  • Foil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes and wrap them individually in foil while they are still wet, no need to dry. Place in the oven on a cookie sheet or else you risk an occasional gooey mess leaking from the foil. Bake for about an hour depending on the size of the potatoes. You want them to be soft when you squeeze them. You can also put them on the grill on high for about 30-45 minutes. 

Green Beans
I love the Haricot Vert frozen green beans from Trader Joe's. I love fresh, too. But often I am disappointed with the fresh selection and who knows how long it has been since it was harvested. So there is nothing wrong with frozen green beans, just make sure there is nothing added to the mix, you know like preservatives. The ingredients should read: green beans.
  • 1 tblsp Extra-virgin olive oil or Organic extra-virgin coconut oil
  • Half a bag of TJs Haricot Vert frozen green beans
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper, to taste.
Heat a medium to large frying pan at a medium-high heat. Add the green beans and stir them around a bit. Let them cook for about 3 minutes. Add garlic and paprika. Turn the heat down to low-medium setting. Cover and let cook until tender, this will take about 8-10 minutes. Remove cover add salt and pepper. 

The instructions on the back say to boil or steam I believe...but don't do it! A little good fat is great and seasoning always makes for yummy veggies. Boiled bland veggies do not taste good.
