We have a fair amount of elk meat in our freezer so I'm making steaks for dinner.<br><br>
Problem is with the side dishes. I can't figure anything out! We have:<br><br>
lots of spices<br>
brown rice<br>
various pastas<br>
carrots<br>
celery<br>
green peppers<br>
couple cans of beans (5 bean blend?)<br>
quite a bit of condiments (mustard, mayonaise, etc)<br><br>
I would normally make just brown rice with braggs but nobody else prefers that. Any ideas?

With those options, I would probably open a can of beans (or a couple different ones), chop up some celery, pepper, carrot (do you have some onion?), mix it all in a vinagrette/Italian/Oil & Vinegar and let it marinate until dinner. Alternatively, you can use pasta instead of the beans for a light pasta/veggie salad.

Hehe. From what I've read here, canola oil = the devil. Was expecting for the flames to be thrown when I mentioned canola oil. Hahaha.<br><br>
I'll saute up some green peppers then. Thanks!
