All American Monday: Steak and Potatoes

After spending Sunday playing in Idaho's most quaint apple orchards (post to come!), I was craving some good old American grub. Without much thought, I decided on a favorite meal of mine - steak, mashed potatoes, and greens. To fully outdo myself, I added an apple crisp to the mix, and while it was madness in the kitchen, everything turned out delicious and absolutely hit the spot. Disclaimer: This is not a low calorie meal, but it's fabulous and indulgent!
