My sweet boy is sick. He even had a bit of a fever last night. The only meal he had eaten yesterday was breakfast. This child is normally an eating machine. There are days where I can barely keep up with getting food to him. His metabolism is off the charts! I wanted him to try to eat some dinner. I let him know his options. He picked one of his favorite meals. Potatoes. And steak would do for the meat.


  • Aprrox 1lb of steak, a little over would be fine. I used tenderloin.
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • Pinch sea salt
  • A couple twists of fresh black pepper

Cut the steak into pieces. Sauté the garlic for a couple minutes until fragrant. Add the steak and brown. Once browned add the Balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, sea salt, and pepper. Bring the sauce to a nice bubble. Reduce a bit and cook until the steak is done to your liking. This will vary depending on the size of your pieces and your preference. Mine cooked a little longer because the husband likes steak well done and Jackson gets freaked out over the fact that he once saw blood come from steak I was prepping!

I served this over my roasted red potatoes. One the side were rainbow carrots which had been lightly sautéed in some olive oil. They still had a slight crisp to them.

Jackson ended up only eating a few bites. It was at dinner that we realized his fever had gone up. He also just felt entirely miserable. You could see it all over his face. So he got some popsicles and we enjoyed this nice yummy meal.

Soon I will get my red potato recipe up as well! It truly is a go to for me. Jackson is obsessed with them. It is his most favorite dish of mine. It is so versatile they literally go with almost anything!
