25 Easy Recipes With Steak
Chevre and Mango Steak Bites
Cut chilled grilled steak when ready to assemble appetizers and slice it very thinly (less than 1/4 inch, if possible). The finished appetizers can be covered and chilled for up to 6 hours.
Easy Steak Fajitas
Let everyone customize their fajitas by setting out an assortment of toppings such as fresh cilantro, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Pick up a container of freshly sliced onions and bell peppers at the grocery store to save time (and tears) when preparing the fajitas. We prefer fresh over frozen vegetables in this recipe; they stay firmer when cooked.
Grilled Steak Salad with Green Tomato Vinaigrette
You can swap out your favorite garden tomatoes for the heirlooms in this tomato-centric salad, but don’t replace the green tomato. Some tomato selections (like Green Zebra) ripen to a lovely shade of green, but this dressing calls for a not-yet-ripened red tomato. Its tart flavor is key to the vinaigrette, which tastes great with any grilled meat or vegetable.
Grilled Steak Salad with Potatoes and Pickled Red Onion
A grilled steak salad is a great option for dinner. A coffee-and-chile rub gives the meat bold flavor without adding extra calories. Hanger steak cooks quickly (4 to 5 minutes per side) and is best served medium-rare, so keep a close eye on it as it cooks. Remove the meat from the grill when it reaches 130°F to 135°F.
These spicy, meaty kebabs will satisfy the heartiest appetites. Our ingenious method of microwaving then grilling the potatoes ensures they remain perfectly tender on the inside without having to boil them on the stovetop. Serve with a tomato salad on the side for a simple, summery meal.
Steak Fajita Chili
Make this staff-favorite one of your go-to dutch-oven dinners this fall. Tougher cuts of meat, like chuck-eye turn meltingly soft, root vegetables make the stew rich and hearty, and a dollop of greek yogurt adds just the right amount of tang, to cut through the rich sauce and brighten the meal.
Grilled Steak and Elote Tacos
Steak, Goat Cheese, and Onion Jam Tartine
We start these tartines (French for toasts, though more familiar to us as open-faced sandwiches) with a simple caramelized onion and balsamic jam. The onions cook down until deep golden and sweet, a great counter to the peppery arugula and tangy goat cheese.
Black and Blue Steak Salad
This gastropub favorite usually features a heaping portion of steak, butter-yellow croutons, and a blanket of creamy dressing. Our more balanced version includes avocado and a vinaigrette that complements the vegetables instead of disguising them.

Steak, Feta, and Olive Quesadillas
We've given the steak quesadilla a Mediterranean spin with feta cheese, olives, and a dollop of creamy Greek yogurt. Meaty, slightly fruity Castelvetrano olives have less sodium than other olives and add a pretty pop of green. If you can't find them, try swapping in rich kalamata olives.
Steak Salad with Butternut Squash and Cranberries
A summer classic leans into fall with roasted butternut squash, tart-sweet dried cranberries, and fresh rosemary. Find peeled, diced fresh butternut squash in the produce section. You can sub crumbled goat cheese or feta for the blue cheese and walnuts or pecans for the hazelnuts.

Fast-cooking and flavorful, skirt steak is made for weeknight dinners. The steak starts out quite large; cutting it into three pieces before grilling helps it cook even more quickly.
Steak and Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos with Chimichurri
Who says you can't make yourself a fancy, classy brunch all at home in the comfort of your own kitchen? For an ultra-hearty start to your morning, fry up some frizzled, sunnyside up eggs and serve them in a warm corn tortilla with grilled flank steak and the works. We topped ours with fresh avocado, queso fresco, radishes, and a flavor-packed chimichurri sauce that melts right into the runny yolks.
Steak, Sweet Potato, and Blue Cheese Salad
Salad for dinner usually sounds like a shortcut. Not so fast. Toss together this satisfying, surprisingly hearty mix of sweet and savory ingredients, and serve with a loaf of focaccia on the side. Plan to use the bread to make some steak sandwiches with leftovers tomorrow.
Steak and Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are made even more savory with the addition of our garlicky, rich Perfect Roasted Beef Tenderloin. Old school crispy shoestring potatoes add texture and flavor like no other ingredient can. These deviled eggs are the perfect way to use the leftover "end" of the beef tenderloin and pair well with any Super Bowl food.
Steak and Peppers with Rice
This filling and savory steak and rice has the all of the hands-off ease of a slow cooker recipe, but with tons of flavor and texture. The meat and peppers slowly simmer and caramelize with beef stock, soy sauce, and tomato paste in your slow cooker, creating a deep and rich sauce.
Skirt Steak Soft Tacos with Avocado-Corn Salsa
Warm corn tortillas and a colorful, chunky salsa transform simple grilled skirt steak into a fantastic--and surprisingly light--summer meal.
