Sheet-Pan Ratatouille with Grass-Fed Steak

  • Serves: 4 people

Studies show that grass-fed beef is a better source of tryptophan than grain-fed beef. This essential amino acid is a precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can help you feel calm. Pair that with a bed of delicious roasted vegetables, such as tomatoes—a good source of melatonin—and eggplant, which is high in GABA, an amino acid that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep.

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, place zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, onion, garlic, oil and ¼ teaspoon salt; toss until well coated. Spread vegetables in an even layer on baking sheet. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove baking sheet from oven, and turn broiler on high. Toss vegetables, pushing them to one side of the baking dish. Season steak with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and black pepper. Place steak on other side of baking sheet, and add tomatoes to the vegetables. Return baking sheet to oven. Broil until steak reaches desired doneness, 3–4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Stir vegetables when you turn steak over to prevent them from browning too quickly.
  4. Remove baking sheet from oven, and cut rib eye into four pieces. Cut each piece into thin slices. Toss vegetables with thyme; divide among plates. Place one portion of steak slices on each of four serving plates.
