From Robin Rescues Dinner: Grilled Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Crumb Topping

This is a simple way to take an everyday steak over the top. Since it takes just a few minutes (and practically zero effort) to make the creamy-crunchy topping, think of this for your next dinner party.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 flank steak (2 to 2 1/2 pounds), or 2 flank steaks (1 to 1 1/4 pounds each)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

(Serves 4 (with leftovers for quesadillas))

Directions

1. Coat a stovetop grill pan or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan. Cook for 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove the steak from the pan and let stand for 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, to make the crumb topping, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until soft. Add the bread crumbs and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Add the blue cheese and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese starts to melt and the mixture is crumbly.

3. Cut the steak crosswise, against the grain, into thin strips. Serve half of the steak with all of the blue cheese mixture sprinkled over the top. (Reserve the remaining steak for quesadillas.)

Quick Side Dish: Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Peel and cube 2 pounds sweet potatoes (2 to 3 medium) and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Transfer the potatoes to a large, rimmed baking sheet, in a single layer, and roast at 400 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, until tender. While still hot, toss the sweet potatoes with a mixture of 1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup and 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard.

From Robin Rescues Dinner: Steak Quesadillas with Spinach and Caramelized Onions and Chunky Ranch Guacamole

We love quesadillas in our house, so I’m always creating a new version. This simple combination contains tortillas stuffed with steak, cheese, spinach, and caramelized onions. What takes them over the top is the guacamole on the side—an awesome (and ridiculously simple) blend of avocados, ranch dressing, lime juice, tomato, and cilantro.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced yellow or red onion
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup prepared ranch dressing
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup diced ripe beefsteak or plum tomato
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 8- to 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • Reserved cooked steak slices (or 3 to 4 cups sliced cooked steak or chicken)

(Serves 4)

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sugar and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, until soft and golden brown.

2. Meanwhile, to make the guacamole, in a medium bowl, combine the avocado, ranch dressing, and lime juice. Mash with a fork until blended. Stir in the tomato and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Coat a stovetop griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.

4. Arrange the tortillas on a flat surface. Top half of each tortilla with shredded cheese, spinach, reserved steak, and caramelized onions. Fold over the un-topped side, making a half moon. Place the quesadillas on the hot pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese melts.

5. Serve the quesadillas with the guacamole on the side.
