Pistachio crusted flank steak with peach puree ($100 Visa gift card giveaway)

This pistachio crusted flank steak topped with a simple peach puree is an easy way to keep dinner healthy yet delicious.

Pistachio Crusted Flank Steak with Peach Puree

So it’s January. We’re done with the cookies and everyone’s got their resolutions in full swing. Eat better, work out more, be a better person, blah blah blah…

I don’t do resolutions. I make concerted efforts at different times of the year for different things, but resolutions? Nope. They just sound like an ultimatum and a sure fire way to set myself up for failure. Do I want to eat better now that the constant temptation of Godiva chocolates, cheesecakes, cookies and the family favorite, Pandoro are out of sight? Absolutely. I’m just refusing to say that I will do xy or z while doing so. No diets, no specific amount of workouts or miles to run, just one healthy decision after another and hopefully more of them than unhealthy ones. It’s that simple.

So for me, that means keeping a stocked pantry and lots of fresh produce on hand to be able to make healthy meals without much effort. Honestly, I’m kinda over the roasted brussels sprouts and squashes by this time of year and now that the holidays are over, all I want is some sunshine and the onset of spring. But that’s not coming for at least another 3 months in good ‘ol New York so I’ll just have to make do with fresh, bright food that reminds me of sunshine, warmer times and a tan (which my pasty white skin would really appreciate right about now).

Pistachio Crusted Flank Steak with Peach Puree

Peaches are the one summer fruit I just can’t live without during the winter so there’s always at least one can of them in the pantry. After visiting some of the farms Del Monte sources their peaches from in California, I can’t help but wonder if they might be the ones we saw on the trees last summer, days before harvesting every time I open a can.

The pistachio crust on this flank steak is awesome as it is, but brightened up with the simple peach puree, it just totally steals the show from right out underneath your typical winter fare.

Maybe I take back my statement on resolutions, because I could totally resolve to eat this every week.

    I love your pictures and the recipe sounds delicious. Frankly speaking, I also dont do resolutions… I also find that stupid, just keep eating healthy throughout the year and consciously eat sweets when you crave them. That is my philosophy ;)
    Take care and have a good new year! :D

  2. 2

    Girl, I literally gasped when I saw those pictures. Holy gorgeous steak batman! I also don’t do NY resos, I just like to eat healthy throughout the year and enjoy treats in moderation.
    I love this flank steak and the pistachios and peaches is super creative and sounds like such a delish pairing! Pinned!

  3. 3

    I also don’t do resolutions. When I hear my friends talk about them, I remind them of their resolution from the previous year, that’s if I can remember it. Exactly! That’s how long it lasted. My favorite fruit this time of the year is Clementine. They’re easy to peel and the tang is just perfect. Thanks for sharing your recipes and new ways to prepare foods. Can’t wait to taste the pairing of peach and flank steak :) Happy New Year!

    I love keeping frozen corn on hand at all time. It’s super simple to heat up and can be incorporated into so many dishes.

    LOVE the idea of using canned fruit in a simple puree sauce. I also avoid making NY resos – mainly for the same reasons you mentioned. I will definitely be giving this recipe a shot!

    My favorite fruit this time of year is orange…I love that they’re in season when we need the extra vitamin-C! To cook with though, I love the blackberries in my freezer from this summer’s harvest; they’re perfect in my oatmeal in the morning! Add a little coconut oil, vanilla, stevia and almonds and it lasts me until lunch.

    So funny your post is about Peaches! Because I ALWAYS keep canned peaches on hand. BECAUSE of the “new” trends in fruit… the hybrids and all- I CANNOT EVER get a good fresh peach. NEVER. The stores never have those nice Old fashioned super-fuzzy skinned freestone juicy peaches. Not ever. I simply gave up buying fresh peaches. The ones they sell are hard, no fuzz and no flavor at all. No juices running down your chin as you bite into it..

    I’m with you. I don’t like saying I’ll make resolutions. I make goals for myself each year that might come off as resolutions, but I don’t beat myself up if I don’t accomplish them all. Most of the goals are just things to help keep me busy during the year and remind myself of things I want to do but keep procrastinating on. The health thing will be a forever-goal I think. I’m also with you on the brussel sprouts, cranberry, squash, spaghetti squash, blah blah blah thing. I live in Michigan and it’s mother f’in cold out and the last thing I want is some butternut-y squash soup that looks and tastes like baby food. While I can’t eat the steak you’ve made, I could make that puree and use it for a number of things! :)

    I have two favorites – honey crisp apples, have you had those? They are the best, most consistently crisp and tasty apple out there. I started eating them a couple years ago and their season was a lot shorter than the normal apple season. But now I guess they are becoming more popular and I can get them even now in Jan. I love them. The other thing I’ve been eating a lot is spinach. I buy a big bag of pre-washed leaves and throw them in w/ eggs for breakfast (trying to reduce grains). Who knew spinach could be good in the morning too? Thanks for this recipe, it’s on the menu for the weekend.
