In an effort to clean out my pantry which seems to be completely overloaded in every area, I have been trying to create my own versions of meals that sound appealing to me.
Y’all know I love me some chicken alfredo, but I am out of chicken—ACK! I know, right? I never run out of chicken! But I refuse to buy anything else until we eat up what we have
That is how this meal came to be! I had some stir fry steak pieces I had purchased from the butcher, which happened to be on sale for $3.59, a box of pasta noodles that I purchased on the markdown shelf for .29, and a delicious and easy alfredo sauce burning in my mind. So I decided to create the perfect pasta dish!
If you remember, back in November I shared a recipe for making your own homemade alfredo sauce. It tastes deelish on this steak pasta!
Here is the recipe friends
Hope you enjoy!
1 package of stir fry beef strips from the butcher
1 box of penne pasta
McCormick Montreal steak seasoning
1 clove of garlic sliced thin
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 cup of butter
3/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
1 cup of heavy cream
Shredded 5 cheese Italian cheese (optional) for garnish
Marinate your steak strips with 2 tablespoons of the steak seasoning, the clove of sliced garlic, and the olive oil. Place all in a bag in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
When you are ready to begin cooking your steak, get out your grill pan and grill a few pieces at a time. Don’t overcrowd the pan or steaming will occur instead of grilling. When the meat is done to your satisfaction, remove from the pan and set it aside to rest.
While the meat is cooking, make your alfredo sauce using the butter, parmesean cheese, and heavy cream. In a medium sauce pan, add cream and butter together. Heat until it is all melted. Add Parmesan cheese and continue to stir until sauce just starts to thicken.
When the noodles have finished cooking, drain almost all the water from the pan, leaving about a 1/4 of the cup in the bottom. This will allow your sauce to stick to the noodles
Slice the steak into little chunks and throw in the pan with the noodles. Pour the alfredo sauce over the noodles and steak and mix together to combine.
Serve with garlic bread and a salad for a complete meal!
