It’s not difficult to cook a compliant slab of steak on Whole30 – plenty of the recipes we included here are little more than meat, salt, and pepper.
However, some of the obvious steak toppings must get set aside – honey and butter are out, but ghee and balsamic vinegar are in!
In addition to more simple steak dishes, we’ve made sure to include some dressed-up dishes with special sauces and toppings to elevate the already elegant steak.
