london broil, roasted potatoes & roasted tomatoes

19 Apr

this was an easy and quick steak dinner to throw together on a weeknight!  next time i might add more horseradish to the sauce for more kick.  and surprisingly the gorgonzola wasn’t too overpowering which it sometimes is!   i don’t think ive ever had tomatoes done this way, but will definitely make these again!  YUM  I served it all with some light Caesar salad.
