My husband & I created this quick tasty meal idea with ingredients found @ Sam's club. I needed to make something that was tasty but not too time consuming since I am recovering from a recent illness. I wanted it to be healthy with lots of veggies, but it also had to have some form of meat for my MEAT LOVER HUSBAND. My husband was both pleased & satisfied with the outcome of the entire meal. Especially with the amount of time used to complete the entire meal. It may be something you might want to try when you are in a hurry as well. The convenience foods really does come in handy

How To Make sam's club 38 minute dinner idea

  • This dinner makes your mouth water and whets your palette. I could only eat a quarter of one of the steaks and half of one of the potatoes, but loved all the veggies.
    Please note this meal required a few different cooking methods, both stove top/Oven and microwave. All for the sake of saving time in getting dinner on the table in a hurry. This is merely what we did, you may have a different idea. Just a means of showing that you can prepare a healthy dinner in less than 40 minutes. POSTED ESPECIALLY FOR MY DAUGHTER BRIANA. I prefer using a cast Iron grill skillet.
  • These are the spices I used to season the Black Angus Steaks. Letting them sit awhile gave the spices a chance to penetrate the steaks to add more flavor.
    COMBINE SPICES OF YOUR CHOICE IN A SMALL BOWL, I used onion powder, garlic powder steak seasoning and butter flavored cooking spray. Blend spices together then sprinkle generously over all sides of steak and allow steak to sit for at least 15 minutes or longer if time permits. Massage spices into meat with hands then spray lightly with cooking spray( I used butter flavored) so spices sticks to steaks.
  • Added the steaks to my heated cast iron grill skillet.
    Generously spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray and a drizzle or 2 of olive or canola oil. Heat over medium high heat, then add the steaks and cook for about 3 minutes per side, then drizzle top of steak with a little olive or canola oil about 1 1/2 teaspoon over each steak.
  • Hot from the broiler, allow to rest on a platter unless you want them to continue to cook while resting in the skillet. For additional added flavor at a pat of butter to the warm steak.
    Then place skillet in preheated broiler, I had mine set on high & cooked first side for 6 minutes, then turned over and cooked an additional 3 minutes. Then remove from oven and remove from skillet unless you want steaks to continue to cook a bit longer while resting in skillet. Place on a platter and allow juices to redistribute. Add a pat of butter to steaks while still warm if desired.
  • These are the convenience Twice Baked Potatoes found in the refrigerated section of the Sam's Club. A total of 14 minutes and they were ready to eat.
    Remove cover on Potatoes, and follow directions on cover, cook as instructed. Ours needed 14 minutes total.
  • These come 4  packages of 1 pound each in a bag, and are steamed cooked in the bag for 6 minutes, to create an Al Dente crunchy crisp texture.
    Then cook green beans as directed on bag, ours said 6 minutes for an 1100 watt microwave or larger wattage. They were Al Dente Crisp. When done season with desired spices. Add a pat or 2 of butter and stir while hot.
  • A vegetable salad doesn't get much easier than this, when everything is conveniently included in the bag and can be put together in 3 minutes or less.
    For the broccoli slaw salad, just open contents of bag into a medium size bowl, add all other ingredients, dried cranberries, bacon bits, sunflower seeds and dressing packet, stir to mix and serve.
