Easy-Peasy Seared Steak with Sauteed Squash & Rice

Just because it tastes delicious, doesn’t mean it took hours to prepare. Look no further than this recipe for proof. Get some rice cooking, sear a piece steak for a minute or two on each side, and then as the meat rests, saute up some diced squash. If you feeling an extra fancy, cook the squash in the same pan the steak cooked in so it absorbs all those meaty juices (and bonus: one less pan to clean up).
