Delicious Oven-Baked Low-Carb Steak & Asparagus

I’m not gonna lie—I would happily eat steak every single day if I could! Luckily my kids and husband can’t get enough either, which means that this is often our go-to meal at least a couple times a week. But honestly, given that it’s high in protein and healthy fat and super-low in carbs, it’s a quick and easy low carb dinner that you can always feel good about.

And while a more expensive cut like filet or ribeye is nice for a special treat, sirloin is a little more practical for everyday.

Be sure to use a meat thermometer to avoid overcooking the meat. I’m currently OBSESSED with the Meater bluetooth thermometer—it makes cooking the perfect, low-carb steak practically foolproof!
