Pistachio Crusted Flank Steak with Peach Puree

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

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

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.

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

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).

This pistachio crusted flank steak topped with a simple peach puree is healthy yet delicious.

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.
