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.

Ingredients & Health Benefits

Flank Steak: I love Organic Prairie Flank Steak!

Yellow Sweet Corn: You can use organic sweet corn on the cob or canned corn, but corn on the cob is so much better!

Sweet Potatoes: Organic sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A and they are a great gluten free healthy carb.

Brussels Sprouts: I love organic Brussels sprouts, they're a cruciferous veggie that's great for gut health.

Red Onion: Organic red onion is loaded with antioxidants and it goes so well with the sweet corn and potatoes.

Coconut Oil: I use organic coconut oil as it's a healthy fat. You can also use extra virgin olive oil or ghee if you prefer.

Rosemary: I use organic dried rosemary, it's great for brain health and digestion!

Thyme: This is one of my favorite spices, organic dried thyme is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

Parsley: Organic dried parsley is rich in vitamin K.

Salt and Pepper: I use fine sea salt and organic black pepper.
