Delicious and Nutritious Meals for Your Littlest Foodie!

A Steak and Potatoes Kind of Baby

A Steak and Potatoes Kind of BabyMy Littlest Foodie LOVES his steak and potatoes!  While you’re whipping up this quick and easy recipe for your Littlest Foodie, throw a potato in the oven and a steak on the grill for you too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2-3 oz of a juicy steak (like a sirloin or tenderloin)) cut into 1-1.5 ounce chunks.  I usually get an 8 oz steak for myself and cut off a couple ounces
  • 1 small white potato – peeled and roughly diced
  • 1 tsp of butter
  • water – about a cup

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a small skillet at medium heat.  Add steak and brown slightly (2 minutes/side).  Add potatoes and enough water to just cover potatoes while cooking (about a cup).  Remove steak from skillet once cooked to well done (no pink).  Continue cooking potatoes until tender (about 12-15 minutes).  Combine steak, potatoes, 1/4 cup of reserved water from cooking and butter in a food processor or blender.  If necessary, blend with a couple of tablespoons of water, formula or breast milk to reach desired consistency.  Serve once it’s cool enough for your Littlest Foodie to eat.

Here’s my favorite steak marinade (enough for 2 steaks):

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • sprinkle each steak with a little (maybe 2 dashes per side) of garlic powder, seasoning salt like Lawry’s and ginger

In a sealable dish or Ziploc bag, combine soy sauce, lime juice and olive oil.  Add steaks and season with garlic powder, seasoning salt and ginger.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.  Bring steaks out of fridge about a half our before cooking.  Through on grill and cook to desired doneness.
