Steak & Chimichurri Salad – Easy Button Low Carb Recipes

Everyone wants an easy button these days—especially when it comes to weeknight cooking and easy low carb keto recipes. We all want the instant gratification of the drive-through window or take-out place without all the unhealthy high glycemic carbs and bad fats that come with (and the hidden sugars) them, driving our blood sugar and insulin into oblivion and making us sick and fat. But with a little planning, Easy Button low carb keto recipes come together in 10-15 minutes or less and are perfectly diabetic friendly, thanks to Fluffy Chix Cook.





Easy Buttons and leftovers are best friends. In fact, they’ve been going steady in the Fluffy Chix Roost for as long as I can remember. They’re such Steady Freddys that I call leftovers “Lucky Leftovers,” because we’re lucky (and blessed) to have them in the meal time arsenal. They have saved us from the dreaded pizza or Chinese delivery guy more times than you can imagine. We’re pleased to report our permanent break-up.

The beauty of Lucky Leftovers is the ability to morph a base recipe into an entirely new dish (serving only 1 or 2 people), with a completely different flavor profile or completely different perception of what you’re eating. You no longer eat leftover steak (as great as it is, it can get boring for 3-4 meals straight). Instead, combine Dad’s Basic Steak aka Great Steak with sauce-tastic, Chimichurri Sauce and serve it with a crisp, crunchy, fresh salad—poof! It’s another meal. Make Steak & Chimichurri Street Tacos by adding feta or Monterey Jack cheese, avocado and sour cream, tucked into very low carb keto-licious Induction-friendly Psylli Wraps! There’s 2 new meals that don’t resemble boring low carb leftovers. Get the idea?




The key to Easy Button cooking is having the individual elements made ahead—and most times, those individual elements exist because they were used in a previous meal. It’s like garanimals for food! Mix and match! Create fusion. Shake things up. This salad comes together in 10 minutes because it only takes me 5 minutes to make the Chimichurri Sauce, and all the veggies are washed and prepped. Oh and the main feature, Dad’s Basic Steak aka Great Steak lives as Lucky Leftovers in the ice box, yearning to be set free in this quick, low carb, salad. A quick chop of the veggies and bang! This Steak and Chimichurri Salad looks like a low carb keto rock star—cuz it is! And it only took 10 minutes. In case you didn’t get that the first 8 times, it took 10 minutes.

Now admit it. Wouldn’t you rather have a gorgeous plate of this real food, than eat a soggy taco from a smelly, greasy, take-out bag? Listen to this Fluffy Chix. Don’t eat SAD. Eat healthy and exercise your Easy Button! Courtesy of low carb keto living. Yeah, it’s a biatch…I’m so bored.

Said no one. Ever.
