Sheet Pan Moroccan Steak with Carrot Top Chimichurri

Yes, yes, I am back with another sheet pan dinner for you. A lot of you have said how much you like them, which is a good thing because I seem to be addicted now. I keep trying to figure out how to cook just about anything on a sheet pan!


I mean, how can you go wrong with a one pan plan? I love it and this Sheet Pan Moroccan Steak with Carrot Top Chimichurri.

I have learned that, when I am feeling a bit blah or uninspired when it comes to mealtime, I reach for the spices. It is a great way to shakes those cobwebs off of your taste buds, without packing in the calories.

One of my fave spice blends lately is harissa. I found this and literally want to put it on everything! It works so well on so many different meats. We all really loved these Harissa Spiced Chicken Kabobs, and I have used it on pork as well.

But meals like this are perfect for just about any spice blend you want to use. You want to go Mexican? Use a taco or fajita seasoning. Asian? Try 5 spice blend I huge puffy heart 5 spice! I have a great Cajun/Creole seasoning that works sooooo well with shrimp and fish, as well as beef and chicken.

So you chose your seasoning, then pick a protein, and now you need to grab some veggies. I used root vegetables with this since it is fall. But other veggies that roast well are broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, butternut squash, parsnips, mushrooms, peppers, Brussels sprouts.......you get the picture.

Also, roasting veggies is a great way to get your picky eaters to try them. Something about roasting VS other methods of cooking just adds that extra oomph to the flavor. It is kinda like the difference between grilled meat VS cooking in a pan. 

I am all about anything that adds more YUM!

It is probably a good thing that I am using spice blends lately because for some reason I have been salting a bit on the heavier side, which is why I very rarely tell you how much salt to use since we all have different levels of salt we like.

Anywho, ya a tid bit forceful with the saltage on several dishes 

Kevin is now firmly convince that I am trying to off him since he has higher blood pressure. #dramaqueen But that does bring up a good argument for spice blends. Just check the sodium content on the label.

Maybe it is that I am craving pumpkin......and apples......and sweets! 

Or maybe it is that my taster is busted (Ohhhh that would be bad!).

No, I am pretty sure I am craving sweets. You know how we crave salt with sweets? 

Uhhhh if you are a man, bypass his question because you just won't get it.

To women the perfect balance of salty and sweet is like the holy grail!

Now, back to the recipe, the other thing I love is to make sauces like this carrot top chimichurri. I was kind of inspired to make it after watching a cooking competition that required the chefs to use every part of the ingredient. That was when I discovered that things like carrot tops, or beet greens, make great chimichurri, pesto, and much more! 

Feels very cool to be able to start the G-baby off right, learning about waste. I mean, you can never start too early plus teach her to eat foods that are good for her right?

Well, we are doing just that because she loved this dinner. 

She especially loved that she got her own little plate with chopped up steak, sweet potatoes, and carrots.

She is growing up sooooo fast 

Can I just freeze her right now and keep her forever? 

Naaaaa I am looking forward to getting her in the kitchen with me. Just the image of her, on a step stool with an apron on stirring up recipes with me, makes my heart flutter 

I am determined to make her a foodie too!!
