5.) Rosemary Steak with Egg Noodles
Start with butter. The beginning of every great recipe. If you have a cast iron skillet, even better. If not no biggie, just use a normal frying pan. This will be super quick! Start with butter in a medium heat skillet. Throw in some rosemary. Once the butter and rosemary are bubbling, add in your steak. Whatever cut you like is best but nothing too thick otherwise it won’t cook fully and your butter will burn! A true tragedy. I know that steak tends to be a little pricey so if you don’t want to do steak, you can really use any protein and it will still be just as delicious. Also, if you don’t eat meat, try this method with tofu to make it a full and quick week night meal. You may have to cube it and add some more spice but it will turn out great! Once your steak is properly searing, throw your egg noodles into boiling water and cook those until they are aldente. Once you strain them immediately add a good amount of butter to stop them from clumping up and set them aside covered to keep the heat in. Watch your steak. Once it is cooked to your liking, plate up your meal, use that butter rosemary mixture to drizzle over the steak and egg buttered noodles and enjoy this amazingly quick and easy week night meal! There is no way this quick week night meal will disappoint!
