On weekends I often want a special meal for my family but I also want to enjoy the afternoon with them. Thanks to a great marinade and a simple roasting technique I can do both. Easy meals like this make sure my family stays happy and that I stay in my skinny jeans!


This week I stumbled across a great looking Flat Iron Steak on sale. They can be a bit on the tough side if you aren’t careful so I started with a simple but tenderizing marinade. Let it sit all day, then roast quickly at a high heat.

SHEET PAN MEAL: Garlic & Brown Sugar Flat Iron Steak
Brown Sugar Flat Iron Steak
  • ½ cup Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • Juice from One Lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • Flat Iron Steak, 3 pounds
  • Cauliflower, chopped into large pieces
  • Vegetable Seasoning, I used McCormick's Perfect Pinch Vegetable
  1. In your shaker cup combine the Soy Sauce, Worcestershire, Lemon Juice, Garlic, Brown Sugar, Black Pepper, Red Pepper, Italian Seasoning. Shake well.
  2. Add the steak to a large Ziplock baggie and pour marinade on top. Seal bag.
  3. Keep in fridge for at least 30 min but overnight is best.
  4. When ready to cook, pre-heat oven to 425
  5. Shake excess marinade from steak and place on a large sheet pan.
  6. Spread the cauliflower out. Sprinkle with veggie seasoning.
  7. Bake 15-20 min depending on how you like your steak. I cooked until 140 degrees internally as I like it on the rare side.
  8. Allow to rest for at least 5 min, slice into slices and serve
Cooking tip: A marinade will add more than just flavor to your lean protein! It can help tenderize tougher cuts, they are easy and simple to make. Try one any time you plan to roast or grill meat.
