What’s the Big Deal With Sheet Pan Dinners Keri?
If you’ve spent any time at all on Pinterest or other food sites these days you may have noticed this food trend of sheet pan dinners going around. The sheet pan dinner tread has been around for a little while now and honestly I’m hoping it stays!
In fact, it might just be one of my favorite food trends of all time. I mean come on how could it not be? These dinners are great way to cook dinner on busy nights with less clean up since most only use a pan (or two) and there are endless possibilities for these types of dinners. All you need is a protein and your favorite side and you’re ready to cook!
I’ve made these types of meals myself many times to feed my family and I’ve even shared a few of our favorite sheet pan dinners here on the blog like these two delicious options.
I hope you will take some time to check out those two sheet pan recipes too after you’ve drooled over this brand new Steak Sheet Pan Dinner.
Why Use A Ribeye Steak for this Steak Sheet Pan Dinner?
I could totally just end this section of the post by saying Ribeye and be justified, right? If you’ve not had a thick juicy ribeye steak oh friends you are missing out.
But is that even possible that someone might not have had a ribeye steak? Well I guess there are vegans that can say that but that makes me sad for them. It is so delicious, but that leaves more for those of us that do enjoy right I guess.
The rib eye or ribeye is a beefsteak from the rib section of the cow. It is both flavorsome and tender, coming from the lightly worked upper rib cage area.
But this cut has tons of beautiful fat marbling throughout it which t makes it very good for fast and hot cooking. The marbling not only give this steak a great flavor but it helps keep the beef juicy when cooking in the oven in this recipe.
The ribeye steak slices perfectly if you slice against the grain after cooking thanks again to that beautiful amount of marbling in the steaks. This my top pick for this recipe but if you prefer a different cut of beef feel free to swamp the ribeye out for your person favorite.
Here Are Some Other Cuts That Might Work As Well:
- New York Strip
- T-Bone Steaks
- Thick Cut Sirloin
If you choose to go with one of these steak cook time in this recipe may need to be adjusted some to fit the thickness of your steak. Keep in mind that the steaks that have less fat marbling will dry out quicker during cooking so watch them closer to avoid over cooking.
Beef needs to be cooked to a safe enteral temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. A good meat thermometer is a great kitchen tool when cooking meats. Check out this USDA Website for more information on cooking meats to the proper temperature.
Here’s How You Prep and Cook This Perfect Steak Dinner.
The great thing about most sheet pan dinners is that everything comes out of the oven and ready to eat at the same time, which is perfect for those nights you are in a hurry to feed your crew or for new cooks that are still learning how timing in the kitchen goes.
For this Steak Sheet Pan Dinner I like to sear my Ribeye Steaks a bit as the veggies roast in the oven and then I add the steaks to the sheet pan and finish cooking them along with the veggies. That way they all come out perfectly.
Now before you or anyone else says that searing the steaks in a skillet first is technically using two pans and defeats the purpose of one pan awesomeness of the sheet pan meals keep in mind that this extra step is totally optional (but I highly recommend it). So no need to sear the steaks first if you don’t want to do that extra step.
I just like getting that nice sear on the outside of the steaks for a nicer appearance and it helps seal in the juices of the beautiful thick ribeye. Another way to get that caramelized coloring is to use your broiler on the steaks while they finish in the oven. So your steaks….your choice here friends.
Now Here’s What You’ll Need for This Sheet Pan Dinner:
- 2 pounds of Ribeye Steak
- 1 large head of Cauliflower
- 1 large red onion
- olive oil
- your favorite seasonings like garlic, salt, pepper, ect
- cherry tomatoes
- feta cheese
I like to take my steaks out to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and season them before I’m ready to cook them. This helps the steaks dry out slightly. You want your steaks to be dry when you place them in the hot skillet (on on your sheet pan if you skip the searing step) so they can get that nice golden crust that seals in the juices.
Next as the steaks are sitting at room temperature I get my veggies ready for the sheet pan. I love using low carb options for this sheet pan like the cauliflower because it hold up well to a high heat roast and it pairs so lovely with the beef.
After I’ve washed and chopped my veggies I toss them in olive oil and seasoning before spreading them out evenly across a large sheet pan to roast.
After the cauliflower, onions, tomatoes, and feta have roasted about 20 minutes I take them out of the oven and make room for my steaks. Once I have my seared steaks on the sheet pan I return the pan to the oven and continue cooking the sheet pan meal for another 6-9 minutes.
The cooking time needed once you have placed your steaks on the sheet pan will depends on the thickness of the ribeye steaks you are using and the level of doneness you or your family want your steak.
My steaks used here were about an inch thick and I cooked them for about 9 minutes after placing them in the oven with the veggies to reach the Medium Well stage that my husband enjoys. I like mine a little less done so when I make this again I’ll do mine for 6 to 7 minutes.
Once the steaks reached my desired doneness I let them rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving them. Let the steaks rest if a very import step.
These few minutes of rest time will do wonders for keeping those amazing juices in the ribeye when you slice them for serving. So don’t skip this step! But keep in mind that the steaks will continue to cook more from the carry heat once removed from the oven while they rest so don’t over cook them in the oven or you steaks will dry out more as they rest.
Once the meat has rested, it can be sliced into the serving portions you need before being plated with the roasted veggies and feta. Depending on how big of a serving you need this two pounds of steak could feed up to 4-5 people easily since that would yeild6-8 ounces of meat per serving. You could always use smaller steak if you were feeding less people.
You and your family are going to be blow away with how amazingly flavorful and easy this sheet pan dinner is. While it is on the pricey side of meals I typically share here it is a very special and delicious dinner that would be a special treat on days like Father’s Day that is coming up in June.
Many blessings from our table to yours. See you next time with another tasty low carb and gluten free recipe!
