For the steak

  • 2 Tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • Two 8-ounce steaks
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

For the spinach and beans

  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon complete seasoning
  • 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans
  • 5 Ounces spinach


For the steak

In a bowl, mix the pepper and salt. Coat the sides of each piece of steak in the pepper and salt mixture, making sure to cover the surface of the sides. 

In a medium-sized frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the steaks, covered, for about 5 minutes on each side for medium.

For the spinach and beans

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the olive oil and 1/2 of the garlic powder and complete seasoning over medium heat. Add the beans, then add the remaining garlic powder and complete seasoning. Mix together for about 3 minutes. Next, add the spinach, carefully folding it into the beans. Cook until the spinach has turned a dark green color, then remove immediately from the heat to prevent overcooking.

Serve with the steak.
