Flank Steak Over Mashed Cauliflower
I have always been a lover of red meat, I could eat it for every meal. This flank steak served over cauliflower mash and covered in chimichurri sauce makes me love it even more. This dish is so flavorful and tasty you would never even guess that it is a Whole 30 approved.
Flank steak is always a great meal for a quick and lean protein option. It is very versatile and can be served in many different fun ways. Slice it thin and serve with veggies or serve over a salad and drizzle with Whole 30 ranch. You can never go wrong with flank steak.
When cooking this recipe, I usually will make the chimichurri sauce the day before, by allow the ingredients to sit, the flavor becomes amazing. I also prep enough flank steak to serve as another meal during the week. This keeps time in the kitchen minimal.
