Dinner was ridiculously good! Balsamic Steak with Radicchio

My plate (minus the shrooms)

So I am always looking for new dinner ideas that I can make fast, with little preparation & that are tasty, filling & sometimes just, well, "not chicken". I spotted this idea in Food Network Magazine: Balsamic Steak with Radicchio, served it with sauteed mushrooms for the hubby & roasted cauliflower (with a little bit of olive oil/bread crumbs/parmesan cheese) &, quite frankly, it was ridiculously good! I left out the sun-dried tomatoes (we're not fans) but followed it otherwise. After the the steaks were browned on both sides, I placed them on an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet into the oven with the roasted cauliflower to keep warm & to cook more medium-well than medium to our liking. The steak was juicy with & without the sauce! De-Lish!!!

I was in the house @4:30, Gabriel was greeted, I changed him, fed him (cod & carrots & pear)... I started dinner... It was cooked, eaten & cleaned up by 6:30! Awesome.
Roasted cauliflower!
