Sesame Steak with Cabbage, Carrots, Onions, and Kimchi
If you roast meat and vegetables on separate sheet pans, you miss an opportunity for deeper, more indulgent- tasting dishes. Instead, overlap your ingredients on a single pan and let their juices meld into a complex, rich dish.
Try this sesame steak or one of these other genius one-pan combos:
- Salmon and Veggies: Thinly sliced leeks or onions, grape tomatoes, garlic, and Swiss chard seasoned with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice. Layer skinless salmon fillets seasoned with salt and pepper on top. Bake at 425° for about 15 minutes.
- Chicken with Chorizo and Beans: Toss canned white beans with cubed chorizo, torn kale, a splash of sherry vinegar, and olive oil. Top with thinly pounded chicken breasts coated with tapenade. Bake at 425° until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. Top with fresh parsley and serve.
- Meatballs with Sweet Potato and Zucchini: Thinly sliced sweet potato and zucchini tossed with harissa paste and olive oil. Layer on thin slices of sweet onion. Top with meatballs (mix ground beef with a handful of oats, a spoonful of orange marmalade, and a pinch each of cumin and salt). Bake at 450° until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. To serve, drizzle with a mix of yogurt and lemon juice. (Here's a whole list of one-pan sheet meal recipes that will change your life.)
