Grilled Steak with Green Beans and Mustard-Shallot Sauce

Grilled Steak with Green Beans and Mustard Sauce via #paleo

Our cross-country move is swiftly approaching, so I’ve spent some time cleaning out our fridge, freezer and pantry. It’s made for some very interesting meals (my girls especially loved the grain-free waffles and buttered peas for dinner the other night!). Now that I’m down to the basics, our meals for the next few weeks will be very simple, but still homemade and unprocessed.

I know I’m probably in the minority, but I love to create meals out of what’s in the kitchen. There’s something fun and challenging about being given specific ingredients and then having to figure out how to make them into something appetizing. It always reemphasizes to me that good meals don’t have to be complicated. A few good quality ingredients can go a long way. So, as I was rummaging through the kitchen I found a bit of steak in the freezer, some shallots, olive oil, Dijon and green beans. With a bit of creativity, we had a vibrant and delicious meal.

Grilled Steak with Green Beans and Mustard-Shallot Sauce

Serving Size: Serves 4

Grilled Steak with Green Beans and Mustard-Shallot Sauce


  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak (you can substitute with ribeye if desired)

  • Celtic sea salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar

  • 2 medium shallots, chopped

  • 3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt


Preheat grill to medium-high. Season steak generously with sea salt and pepper. Grill to desired doneness. Let steak rest for 5 minutes, then slice thin, on the bias (against the grain).

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Place green beans in boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, until bright green but still very crunchy. Drain.

Place olive oil, Dijon, red wine vinegar, shallots and sea salt in a blender and blend until smooth (the sauce is very spicy on it's own, but the flavors will temper when the sauce is added to the steak and beans). Place steak and green beans on a large platter and pour sauce over top (or serve on the side). Serve immediately.

    Looks delicious! We always end up eating out way too often when we pcs. If you guys drive across country, I’d love to hear about how you handle food along the way and during the transition! When we pcs’d from VA to CA last year it was only my husband and I (the kids stayed with their grandparents) and we had some paleo snacks in the car but we were at the mercy of roadside restaurants when it came to meals! We found a few really good organic cafes with gluten free options (Flying Star Cafe in NM!) but not many.

      Yes, I’ll make sure and talk about what we are eating and how it all goes. I’ll post some of that info on Facebook, so make sure and check over there. We ate at the Flying Star Cafe when we passed through NM too! If it comes down to it, I usually go to a grocery store and get cheese, nuts, and berries and call it a meal. :)

  2. That looks delicious! For the month of May, I will be using what we have on hand. The main goal is to keep our food spending as low as possible. I would like to start from scratch in June for our groceries – making room for plenty from our garden and farmer’s markets!

    Yum! Gotta love those clean out the pantry meals before a PCS. ( military move) We recently moved bases too and had a lot of breakfast for dinner nights..which my husband loved! I told my 4 year old that we weren’t gonna go to the grocery store anymore and we were just going to eat what we had until it was gone. So the next day his preschool teacher pulls me aside and asks if everything was okay because my son told her we weren’t able to buy any more food…LOL so embarrassing. In other words..Carrie I’m excited to see what you come up with! Love your practical meal ideas. Where you headed?

    I just whipped this up last night after getting home pretty late and I didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. It was cold outside so I broiled the steaks while cooking the green beans and blending the sauce. It was so quick and easy and DELICIOUS! My husband was surprised to see dinner already on the table when he came in from outside. And the best part is going to bed feeling great, not bloated. Thanks for the recipe!!
