What wine to serve with sheet pan steak:
Cabernet Sauvignon. Among the most powerful and concentrated red variety, cabernet sauvignon can also be elegant. For its part, beef has a flavor that’s bold and refined. In this way, cabernet “mirrors”
beef, creating a whole that’s greater than the sum of the parts.
Cabernet sauvignon also possesses a considerable amount of tannin, which gives it the structure and intensity to pair well with beef.

For the caramelized onion (optional):
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil

- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with foil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- If you’re making caramelized onion, add coconut or olive oil to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the sliced onion, and cook, stirring frequently, for 15-20 minutes or until the onions soften and turn a dark amber color.
- Add the halved baby potatoes to the pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Top with minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat the potatoes. Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
- While the potatoes are roasting, prepare the steak. In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Season steak by rubbing the spice mix on both sides.
- When the potatoes are ready, remove from the oven and turn the oven to broil mode. Stir the potatoes and push them to one side of the pan. Place the seasoned steak on the opposite side and place back in the oven. Broil the steak for 5-7 minutes on one side then remove from the oven, flip the steak, stir the potatoes and place back in the oven.
