This is a winner of a meal for the weekend. Delicious steak with honey roasted carrots and onions, set off with the brightness of lime and the spice of chipotle. Enjoy it with a sparkling water or champagne, and maybe the newest episode of WandaVision, and you have yourself a date night in!
8 oz carrots, sliced
1 medium red onions, sliced
1 ounce honey
1⁄2 lb steak
1 oz chipotle in adobo sauce
kosher salt & ground pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
