Steaks with Broccoli and Bacon with Ranch Dressing

I saw an awesome bunch of broccoli at the Farmer's Market and knew the perfect use for it: this recipe in the September 2001 issue of Food and Wine. My paleo version is a quite a treat...and it looks pretty cool, too! This dressing is REALLY good and easy.

Serves 3-4, with leftover dressing.

3-4 steaks of your choice
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
1 cup paleo mayonnaise
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
2 Tbsp fresh dill, finely minced
1-2 cloves garlic, smashed and ground to a paste with a little sea salt
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 large head of broccoli, cut lengthwise into long pieces
1/2 pound bacon
snipped fresh chives

  1. Preheat grill to medium high.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, coconut milk, and vinegar in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk to combine.
  3. Add dill and garlic and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Season steaks with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Grill for 5 minutes on each side or until they reach your desired degree of doneness.
  5. Arrange broccoli and whole slices of bacon on plates. Drizzle with ranch dressing. Season with additional pepper, if desired. Serve with steak.
