Succulent Pan Fried Steak | Roasted Eggplant Recipe

Italian Beef Recipes

Impress your guests or your partner with Danny’s (my husband) succulent pan fried steak recipe (see video), complete with my incredible roasted eggplant platter over pasta.

Dan cooks up a perfect, tender and juicy steak every time no matter what the cut!

This is one meal we always work together on. I do the roasted eggplant and vegetables over linguine and he does the delectable steak on the side.

It is definitely a match made in heaven (so is the steak and eggplant pasta by the way) and it is also a full course healthy dinner idea! Serve it with some toasted Italian garlic bread and this is one meal that will dazzle all those who partake!
