Give this Sheet Pan Steak and Roasted Veggies a shot!If you’ve been reading Spiced for a while, then you know that we have two dogs.  Our dogs are spoiled rotten, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  In fact, our dogs were our kids before a certain little rascal arrived on the scene a year ago.  Maximus has been with me since right after college, and he’s ventured from North Carolina down to south Louisiana then Atlanta and now upstate New York.  He’s well traveled.  And he’s a bed hog.

dogsEthel is our resident rescue mutt.  She’s part chihuahua and part terrier (we think), and she’s 100% lap dog.  We joke that Ethel must have amazing hearing because she can hear a lap being created anywhere in the house.  Ethel came from a small dog rescue clinic in Atlanta, and I have to say that I’m now sold on rescue dogs!

While we don’t have a lot of extra time to volunteer right now (gee, I wonder why?  *ahem* Robbie *ahem*), we do still regularly donate goods to our local animal shelter.  Whenever we go to the warehouse store, we pick up a big pack of dog food and paper towels to drop off at the shelter.  It’s an easy way to help out!

I’m joining with other foodies to ask for your help!  If you have any money to spare this holiday season, please consider making a small (or large!) donation to the Foodies for Foodbanks campaign.  To donate, just click here.  Every little bit helps…so thank you!

foodies-for-foodbanks2As part of this Foodies for Foodbanks campaign, I’ve joined with some blogger friends to create a beef recipe.  But this isn’t just any beef recipe.  It’s a beef recipe that needs to feed a family of 4 for $10.  (Veggies/side dishes aren’t included.)  The wheels up top starting squeaking, and I decided I wanted to do something with steak.  But it needed to obviously be a less expensive cut of steak.  Say hello to Sheet Pan Steak and Roasted Veggies.  Say hello to dinner!

I went with flank steak for this Sheet Pan Steak and Roasted Veggies dish as flank steak is usually on the more affordable side.  In fact, I managed to come in right around $8.50 for the steak portion of this meal…and that included ~1¾ pounds of flank steak.  I added in some of my favorite veggies and tossed ’em all onto a single pan.  One pan means less to clean up after dinner.  That’s how I roll around here!

  1. Dude – your two causes rock! We have two rescue dogs too, one of them had some gum surgery done and they have both been eating rice and chicken or sweet potatoes, pb and eggs for just about every meal! Talk about spoiled eh?! You sure are right about every bag of food at a dog shelter and every can of food at a food banc! As soon as I hit “post comment” am heading over to donate.
    Btw, I love roasted sheet pan meals like this – not only are they budget friendly, but they are just plain delicious! Happy Friday, hope y’all have a wonderful weekend, David!

    1. Wow, you really are an angel, Shashi! Making your pups rice + chicken + sweet potatoes for every meal? But I totally get it…and that’s totally something we would do, too! Thank you so much (seriously!!) for your donation. You are too kind, and your generosity is simply amazing! Hope you guys had an amazing weekend down south. (Just for the record…it’s snowing here this morning. Sure Lil Shashi still wants to come north? Haha!)

  2. Hi David! I can’t tell you how many dogs and cats I have taken in over the years! My female dog brought home a tiny kitten during a thunderstorm a few years ago who I named Henry who now thinks he is king of the manor! I donate food through a program at my local store and when we have an overload of vegs in the garden I put them in a box with a free sign and set the box down by the mailbox. Those boxes don’t sit there long, As for today’s recipe I love sheet pan meals, especially during busy holidays! So convenient and stress free! And roasted vegetables are my favorite!

    1. How amazing is that that your dog brought a kitten home during a thunderstorm!? It’s like she knew that kitten needed help. You trained her well! One of our neighbors also donates extra produce from her garden the same way you do. 🙂 Sheet pan meals are a life saver during the busy holiday season…and this one was especially tasty thanks to the steak. Yum! Thanks, Dorothy. Hope you guys had an awesome weekend!

  3. Oh David!! I will be joining you if course! this is the time to share and spreak kindness and love and bring families together, there is no easier way to do that, that with food! I love this post! and your two dogs are the cutest! Ps. I have two dogs too!! (Mario and Morris) and two cats (simba and lili)!

    1. Thank you so much, Gaila! You truly are amazing! 🙂 Food really is the best way to bring people and families together…and it’s important to remember to share during this time of the year. Oh, and I love your pets’ names…Morris the dog is great!!

  4. I adore one-pan cooking and this recipe looks phenomenal! I typically just throw fillets of salmon on a sheet pan with sweet potatoes and away it broils! 🙂

  5. That looks like my dinner on most night. I’m a vegetable lover; I just can’t get enough of them, and I’m always looking for different flavorful ways of cooking them. I can’t only imagine the flavor you get from the steak juices, yummy, You did it again David 🙂 Maximus and Ethel are pretty adorable.

    1. Why thank you so much, Mary! Maximus and Ethel are our first kids, and it’s been fun watching them adapt to having Robbie around the house. Robbie was actually sitting there this morning petting Ethel…and she was letting him do it! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Manali! Food really is a great way to bring people together, and it’s important to remember to give back…especially during this time of the year when our countertops are often loaded with snacks and treats! And I totally agree with you…sheet pan dinners are the best! Easy prep + easy cleanup = a win in my book! 🙂

  6. I’m all about the one sheet pan dinner, too. The roasted flavors and one dish clean up. Love dogs, and that Maximus is indeed well travelled! Ethel is awesome, that face! Love her. Never seen these two before, thanks for sharing that.
    Now I just wish the West coast had those low cost flank steaks that you get your hands on. It’s one that keeps going up out here. Thanks Dave.

    1. Yup, I’m right there with ya, Kevin. Sheet pan dinners mean more time doing other things…like chasing babies around the house. Or throwing Snoopy toys for the dogs. 🙂 Also, I had no idea that steak prices were so much higher out West!

  7. Maximum and Ethel, my Greek yogurt loving pooches. I’m glad they are up there with food! Also, big props on the initiatives, those causes are awesome!

    I hope you treat them to this delicious sheet pan dish- What a fuss free recipe and I’ve never seen one with steak- Definitely keen to try it out!

    1. Dude…food + dogs. Dogs + food. That pretty much describes us right there. Oh yeah, and a baby. Haha! This is one delicious meal, my friend. Plus, sheet pan meals mean less to clean up. Win!!

  8. I’ve never considered cooking steak and veggies together like this. Interesting. Thanks also for encouraging generosity and charity. We all need to heat messages like that.

    1. Yup, the holidays are often frantic and crazy…but they’re also the most important time to remember other people, too! And definitely do cook some sheet pan dinners, Jeff. They’re easy…and cleanup is a cinch. 🙂
