Grilled Ribeye with Sauteed Mushrooms and Mexican Street Style Cauliflower

My 8 year old daughter is OBSESSED with cooking and helped me make this meal from start to finish! She couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was and told everyone at the dinner table how we prepared it and kept letting us know how important it is to “let the meat rest out”. I’m so proud of that girl and I enjoy teaching my kids what healthy food actually looks like and how to prepare it.

This is the perfect summer dish, in my opinion, as it can all be prepared on your outdoor grill! Cauliflower is a great substitute for corn, which is a keto no-no as it is super high in carbs, but this Street Style Cauliflower is AMAZING and totally satisfies my craving for the original dish!


Ribeye and mushrooms-

4-8 oz ribeyes

2 tbsp butter

salt and pepper

12 baby portobello mushrooms, sliced or quartered

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup white wine

1 tbsp dried or fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Heat grill or cast iron pan over medium high heat. Salt and pepper both sides of ribeye. Once seasoned, grill 5-6 minutes for medium-rare.
  2. In a medium pan over medium heat, melt butter and add mushrooms. Let sit for 1-2 before stirring. Add a pinch of salt and pepper then add garlic. Once mushrooms are golden brown, pour in white wine and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add parsley.
  3. Spoon mushrooms and white wine sauce over ribeyes and ENJOY!
