Food Recipes Smoky-Sweet Steak Supper 5.0 (1) 1 Review Sometimes you need a simple recipe that won’t take a lot of time or fancy ingredients, but will still deliver great flavor. Enter this steak dinner, which combines a brown sugar-and-paprika rubbed steak with a fresh green salad. Thanks to the blanched green beans, there’s enough fiber in the salad to keep you full until breakfast, plus an anchovy-spiked vinaigrette that adds umami-rich deliciousness to everything it touches. The resulting dinner is both elegant and ready in under 30 minutes. Win-win. Serve with a light red wine like pinot noir or a medium bodied white like Chardonnay.
