Friday's Grilled NY Strip Steak w/ Mushrooms & Steamed Broccoli

This evening I didn't have a specific plan for dinner.  I had a package of ground chicken in the fridge, but just wasn't in the mood to have that this evening.  So, at 6:30, and still undecided about what to make, I said to hubby...let's get in the car and run to the grocery store to see what grabs me.  When we got to the store, I noticed that they had NY strip steaks on sale that looked good, so I picked up a couple of steaks, grabbed some fresh mushrooms and a couple fresh broccoli crowns and we were out the door in less than 10 minutes (a rarity for me). We got back home around 7:00 and by 7:25, we were sitting down and eating dinner. While hubby fired up the gas grill, I seasoned the steaks with a little Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning and then cut the broccoli into florets and sliced the mushrooms. It took about 15 minutes for him to grill the steaks. While the steaks cooked, I steamed the fresh broccoli in the microwave with a little bit of water which only took about 5 minutes, drained it, tossed with butter, Celtic sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. I sauteed the mushrooms in Kerrygold Garlic Herb Butter and then added a dash of sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon to them after they were done cooking. Eating wheat free can be as complicated or as simple as you choose it to be. We enjoyed a delicious and fresh, wheat free meal that took less than 30 minutes from start to finish with minimal effort and work involved. I snapped a couple photos for you to see below. Enjoy!

Less than 30 minutes to BOOM!

Hi vaccinenurse! Yes, I do love it when our guys can grill a steak the way we like it! Grouper sounds delicious, too, along with your "farm grown" salad. You are right, once you focus on all the wonderful "real food" things you can enjoy, it makes the things you no longer eat (wheat, grains, sugar) seem trivial! I don't know how our society got so far away from eating real foods and somehow got tricked into thinking all the processed convenience stuff was good. Thanks for your kind words and glad to hear you are enjoying trying out some of my recipes! :-)
