Comfort Food – Steak Dinner for Carnivores & Vegans

Ingredients for 4 hearty servings

* Optional Substitution Note


  • Green Beans
    • spray olive oil
    • 12oz (weighed) raw green beans
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
  • Steak
    • spray olive oil
    • 1 1/4lb lean sirloin steak, cubed into 1.5-inch pieces
      • VEGAN SUB: oven roasted eggplant with sea salt & pepper
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Land seasoning (OR dried thyme and dried oregano)
    • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
    • 1/2 medium white onion
    • 1 1/2 cups sliced cremini or portobello mushrooms
    • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic
    • Sauce: 2 cups no salt added beef broth (or vegetable broth)  +  2 tablespoons arrowroot starch or cornstarch  +  2 tablespoons Worcestershire (or vegan Worcestershire)
  • Cauliflower
    • 1 lb cauliflower florets
    • 3oz plain 2% Greek yogurt (OR 3 tablespoons tahini)
    • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons The Fit Cook Everyday blend
    • 1 tablespoon dried chives (OPTIONAL)
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley


Step 1

Place a small amount of water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add raw cauliflower, cover and steam until soft, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on HIGH heat.  Once hot, spray with oil, then add the green beans.  Sear the greens and toss them in the skillet for a few minutes as marks begin to appear along the edges.   Add 2- 3 tablespoons of water  to the skillet to create steam (which will help soften them) and continue tossing the green beans.  Once the green beans are crisp-tender, about 4-6 minutes, reduce the heat to medium and add the fresh garlic.  QUICKLY toss the green beans in the garlic and remove from the skillet.

Step 3

Place the skillet back on the heat, increase to HIGH.  Once hot, spray with oil then add the beef sirloin.  Note: If you are using eggplant,  simple roast the eggplant with sea salt, pepper and olive oil in the oven for 15 minutes at 420F. Toss the beef in the skillet and ensure dark, rich sears appear along the sides.  Once the beef is about 60% cooked and the edges are seared, reduce the heat to medium and add the rosemary, olive oil and butter.  Baste the beef in the sauce continuously for 2 – 3 minutes.  Then remove  the beef from the skillet  using tongs so that any sauce still remains in the skillet.

Step 4

Add garlic, onions and mushrooms to the skillet. Saute for 3 – 5 minutes until the onions turn brown and translucent.  Pour in the sauce and as soon as the color begins to change – turn glassy and shiny – remove the skillet from the heat and continuously stir to thicken the sauce.  Add  the beef to the sauce and place back on the heat to simmer and to allow the meat to cook through under the heat of the skillet . Note: for VEGANS, use vegetable broth and add the roasted eggplant to the skillet  to cook  through.  Set aside and garnish with fresh parsley.

Step 5

In the same pot steaming the cauliflower, empty out ALL and any  excess water.  Add the remaining ingredients for the cauliflower mash to the pot.  Use an immersion blender or potato masher or fork to mix everything together and season to  taste with sea salt & pepper.  Garnish!

Step 6

Serve and enjoy!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
