Steaks with Frying Peppers and Gremolata Recipe

Steak…. yum.. It’s not something that I cook a lot but when I do, I always like to try new things. When I ordered my Sun Basket delivery I really wanted steak. Plus, if this was good, I would make it again! Let me tell you…. this is one I will make again and again. This was so simple. It had ingredients I could easily get at our local grocery store and it was done in a half hour!


Here is what you’ll need:

2 tbsp butter

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

1-2 garlic cloves

1/4 ounce pine nuts

1 lime

Fresh oregano

1/4 tsp sweet smoked paprika

2- 6oz top sirloin steaks

3 ounces spring onions

5 ounces cherry tomatoes

5 ounces sweet Italian frying peppers

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil


Step 1. Prep your ingredients

-Let the butter come to room temp.

-Coarsely chop the parsley leaves.

-Coarsely chop the garlic

-Coarsely chop the pine nuts

-Finely chop the oregano leaves


Step 2. Make the Gremolata.

-In a mixing bowl, combine the parsley, garlic, pine nuts, and half the lime zest. Season with salt and pepper.


Step 3. Make the paprika butter.

-In a small bowl, using a fork, mash the butter with the oregano, paprika, and the remaining lime zest. Season with salt.


Step 4. Cook the steak.

-Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper.


-In a pan, warm 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare, depending on thickness. Transfer to a plate and let rest. While the meat cooks, start the veggies.


-Once the steak is cooked, set aside to rest.


Step 5. Cook the spring onions and peppers.

-Trim the root ends from the spring onions; cut in half lengthwise.

-Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.


-In the same pan used for the steak, add 1 tablespoon oil if dry. Warm over medium heat. Add the spring onions, season with salt, and cook, turning once, until lightly charred and softened, 3 to 4 minutes per side.


Transfer to a plate.


-In the same pan, raise the heat to medium-high. Add the peppers and season with salt. Cook until slightly charred and softened, 4 to 5 minutes.

Sun Basket Unboxing Review

I can’t tell you how excited I was to open my Sun Basket box when the Fed Ex driver dropped it off. I was running around trying to get my children situated so I could get that bad boy opened.

If you don’t know what Sun Basket is, they are a meal delivery service based out of the West Coast that offers meals that are all organic, containing no hormones or antibiotics, humanely raised, fresh ingredients to make some fancy looking meals! They have a lot of different options to fit all diet needs. I personally chose a steak, shrimp and cod dish to try. I got 3 meals, each having 2 servings.

I received notice on Tuesday that my package was shipped and on Wednesday it was delivered. I was very surprised to feel that the box was cool to touch. Which made me happy. I was a little nervous on how all the works, considering they are shipping meat.

20160720_212641Well, there it is! Loved the box design. I think that’s initially what made me excited. It just screams… Open Me!

20160720_212919_resizedThe Box is fully insulated and was cool to the touch. I knew everything that was inside remained the appropriate temperature throughout it’s travel. Opening you can see that all three meals have their own back of ingredients. I thought this was awesome. How much easier can it get right?


Under all food bags was another cooler section that had freezer packs surrounding the meat! How smart!


The meat looked great. The best part that they are labeled with handling instructions and when to use by. So, even if your plan isn’t to cook right away, you’ll know when you need to do it by.

It comes with all the recipe cards as well and any tips you may need when it comes to cooking your food.


Here are the meals that I chose.

Overall. my first impression with Sun Basket is A+ with no complaints. The quality and freshness are wonderful! Now if I can just cook all of this so it can look like it does on the card… we will be in good shape!!


Thank you, Sun Basket!
