Ribeye Steak and Shrimp with Parmesan Sauce for Two - Applebee's copycat recipe

This Applebee’s Copycat Steak and Shrimp with Parmesan Sauce is amazing! Tender, juicy grilled Ribeye steak is topped with seasoned grilled shrimp and a savory Parmesan cheese sauce. We have swapped out sirloin for Ribeye and grilled the shrimp instead of pan-frying. The cheese sauce is delicious and very versatile! Try pouring it over your chicken, mashed potatoes, or broccoli dishes. This is the perfect easy surf and turf dinner for two, ready in just 30 minutes.

This dish goes great served with this Mashed Potato Casserole for Two, these Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes, or these Cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes for Two.

Season the steak to your preference. We like just salt and fresh cracked black pepper as the sauce has great flavor already.

 

Cook the steaks either on the stove in a frying pan or outside the grill, until done to your liking. These 1/2 inch thick steaks took about 5 minutes per side on our gas grill. We like ours done to medium rare.

At the same time, add the shrimp to the pre-soaked skewers.

 

Melt the butter in the microwave approximately 20 – 30 seconds and brush it onto the shrimp. Sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning then grill the shrimp. Cook until pink and opaque flipping over half way through, about 2 minutes on each side or 4-6 minutes total.

 

Place the grilled steak on the plate, top with the grilled shrimp and then the Parmesan sauce.
