  • Sirloin beef steaks
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 2 to 3 zucchini
  • Some mushrooms
  • 3 to 4 (or 5 to 6, or maybe a whole head) cloves garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Many dashes of steak seasoning
  • A few shakes of lemon pepper seasoning
  • A pinch or two of seasoned salt
  • Cooking Directions

    Cut steaks into cubes, and then sprinkle with steak seasoning. Wash and chop vegetables to bite-sized pieces. Mince garlic.

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add only enough beef to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook the beef to your desired doneness, turning to brown each side of every piece. Remove beef from pan and let rest on a plate.

    Add onions to the pan and cook until translucent. Add the cauliflower, broccoli and garlic to the pan and sauté until crisp-tender.

    Brush a hot grill pan with olive oil and grill zucchini slices, adding a dash or two of lemon pepper seasoning and seasoned salt.

    Serve with rice of your choice.
