I am desperately trying to change up the easy weeknight dinner game these last few weeks. I’m looking through cookbooks and magazines for ideas and something new to try. My friend Robyn of the popular blog Add A Pinch just released her new cookbook and it couldn’t have arrived at my doorstep at a better time.
Robyn is one of those friends I’ve known since my very early days of blogging, yet have never met in person. I think we have to change that this year Robyn!!! Her cookbook, the Add A Pinch Cookbook is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I’ve seen, filled with gorgeous photos of recipes that have a Southern flair using fresh, seasonal ingredients. I’m all about those fresh seasonal ingredients, as you know.
I have SO many pages bookmarked. When I saw her recipe for Easy Pepper Steak I knew I had to make it right away because my husband LOVES pepper steak. The steak turned out so fork tender in the slow cooker, it was seriously so delicious – and so simple to put together. I don’t cook beef recipes too often so my husband really enjoys when I do.
I took Robyn’s suggestion in the book and instead of rice, I served my dish with cauliflower rice to keep things on the lighter side. I am fairly new to the cauliflower rice craze and since I stocked up on some from Trader Joe’s recently, I’ve been eating it quite often – I love it! The rest of my family ate their steak with brown rice (with a little cauliflower rice mixed in – always finding a way to get more veg in my kids!).
Side note: I’m hooked on cauliflower rice!! To make it, I sautee it in a tiny bit of coconut oil and season with salt and pepper. It’s really a great low carb swap for rice, I’m sold.
