In an effort to clean out my pantry which seems to be completely overloaded in every area, I have been trying to create my own versions of meals that sound appealing to me. I made a delicious Grilled Steak Alfredo this week.
Y’all know I love me some chicken alfredo, but I am out of chicken—ACK! I know, right? I never run out of chicken! But I refuse to buy anything else until we eat up what we have 🙂
That is how this meal came to be! I picked up a markdown steak from the meat counter, which happened to be on sale for $3.59, a box of pasta noodles that I purchased on the markdown shelf for .29, and a delicious and easy alfredo sauce burning in my mind. So I decided to create the perfect pasta dish!
If you remember, back in November I shared a recipe for making your own homemade alfredo sauce. It tastes delish on this steak pasta!
How to Make Grilled Steak Alfredo
The sauce is simple and easy — heavy cream, garlic, lemon, and Parmesan cheese. This recipe literally takes about 15 minutes to come together.
Here is the recipe friends 🙂
- 1 steak from the butcher
- 1 box of penne pasta
- McCormick Montreal steak seasoning
- 1 clove of garlic sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1/2 lemon squeezed
- 3/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- Shredded 5 cheese Italian cheese (optional) for garnish
- When you are ready to begin cooking your steak, remove from the packaging and sprinkle on the Montreal Steak Seasoning.
- Get out your grill pan and turn heat to medium high. Drizzle on a little olive oil in the pan to keep steak from sticking.
- Sear both sides of the steak until the preferred color and doneness of steak occurs. I like my steak medium so I do mine to 145-150 degrees.
- While the meat is cooking, make your alfredo sauce using the butter, parmesean cheese,garlic, lemon and heavy cream.
- In a medium sauce pan, add butter and garlic and let heat for about a minute. Then add in heavy cream. Heat until it is all melted.
- Add Parmesan cheese and continue to stir until sauce just starts to thicken. Squeeze in the lemon juice and remove from heat.
- When the noodles have finished cooking, drain almost all the water from the pan, leaving about a 1/4 of the cup in the bottom. This will allow your sauce to stick to the noodles
- Slice the steak into little chunks and throw in the pan with the noodles. Pour the alfredo sauce over the noodles and steak and mix together to combine.
- Serve with garlic bread and a salad for a complete meal!
