I am definitely a meat and potatoes kind of gal. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a steak dish that I didn’t love immediately. I know that steak isn’t always the cheapest or healthiest option at the supermarket, but luckily, it comes in many forms aside from expensive t-bones and Filet Mignon. These great recipes call for skirt steak, sirloin, and other accessible cuts. All are prepared in simplistic, diverse, and delicious ways.
