Why You'll Love This Recipe
Summer calls for lighter dishes and lots of veggies. Plus, lots of grilling! For me, that means I usually eat more meat in the summertime than I do the rest of the year, because I am constantly grilling. But, what if you don't have a grill and you still want to enjoy amazing summer meats and veggies? Well, today I got you covered with my Summer Steak Skillet recipe that doesn't require the grill. Yet, this recipe is summer in a skillet.
You'll just need a 10-inch cast iron skillet and your oven to make this easy Summer Steak Skillet recipe. I just got this Milo Skillet from Kana, and I seriously love it! It is a tad deeper than my Staub or my Lodge skillet that I already have, so I was super excited about that. Plus the bright white is just so gorgeous, how can you not want it!?
This recipe is perfect on its own, but it can also be served with rice, tortillas, or bread. I’ve used lots of colors of the rainbow in this skillet dish along with my favorite summer vegetable, corn on the cob. Now, if you didn't know that I am from the Midwest – I am telling you now because we are talking about corn. And corn on the cob is one of my favorite vegetables. And yes, it's a vegetable in this form. Read my article, What the Hell is Corn? to learn more.

Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
