10 Minute Steak Tacos

IMG_6849

This is a meal that ANYONE can make!  It takes less than 10 minutes (the video is longer due to the intro) and it is delicious!

This is a really easy steak taco, and it is wonderful if you’ve had a late night, you want to eat healthy and not succumb to the siren call of fast food.  Namon was running late tonight, so he decided to borrow of the concepts of Jamie Oliver (check out his cookbooks and youtube videos, he is awesome!!!) and make a quick, and delicious dinner.

You will need:

Steak – we had two little sirloins

Wraps – ours were gluten free tortillas

Tomatoes – one, we used two but that was too much

Chilli pepper – JUST one, unless you like the burn (we like the burn)

Red Onion – Half… I would have used less… I hate fresh onion

Green onion, 1-2 depending

Olive Oil

Juice of one lemon

Cilantro

More olive oil

Salt, pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika

Sour cream

Hummus (optional –  we had some cilantro flavored hummus and it was delish)

Instructions:

Season the steak with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika

Sear on medium high heat with some oil for 3 minutes each side

Chop up your tomato, chili, red onion, green onion, and cilantro.  Place in bowl, season with salt and pepper, add olive oil and juice from lemon.  Mix.

If you want, you can heat your tortillas (grill them, microwave them, depending)

Slice steak

Build your taco with the tortilla, sour cream, hummus, steak, and salsa mix.  Add more paprika, salt, and pepper, to taste.  Eat.

Then spend another ten minutes cleaning everything up (20 if you cook like Namon – still faster than going out to eat or ordering in).

Here is the video so you can see, in real time, how Namon prepared everything.

Guys, this was delicious!  I, personally, could have had less fresh onion, but that is personal preference. 😉

I hope you try this!!! It really was as easy as it looked! If you make changes let us know, we are always looking to improve upon recipes and are open to suggestions!

 

Beef with Beets Borscht

This turned out wonderful!  Namon agreed, I wouldn’t have posted otherwise.  We were already in jammies so Namon didn’t make an approval appearance, but he really liked it. 🙂  Which is good, since this meal was celebrating his return home!  I miss him when he is away.

Anyway, for this rather hearty meal you will need:

Chuck roast – about 1 1/2 lbs

2 large carrots

4 medium beets (I used five small ones)

1 onion

4 cloves of garlic

3 cups of broth – I had to use chicken cause we didn’t have beef

6 slices of thick bacon

I used about 1 tablespoon of dry dill (the recipe called for 6 sprigs fresh)

2 bay leaves

3 tablespoons honey (I used raw)

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

3 cups of cabbage (I measured, Namon laughed!)

And here is the video!

We may improve upon this recipe soon!  Namon has some ideas.  He still really liked it just as it is, but I LOVE that he is always able to change things up and make them better. Me, I’m a recipe girl through and through. 😉  And that’s okay!

Let us know what you think, and how you would improve the recipe!

 

12 Minute Chicken Stir Fry

As promised, Namon’s quick chicken stir fry!

We actually really like this one.  We may make it a regular thing.  In the following video, I make a lot of witty (ha, yeah right) commentary. 🙂 I can’t help it, I’m a smart@$$.  I’m very lucky Namon suffers my jokes. Just a warning, I DO say… S… H… I.. T… Sorry! I’m horrible when I’m not checking myself. Like, way worse than this.  Just know, the word is in the video.

Okay, once you watch the video, and hear my LOVELY puns, this is the recipe Namon made up himself and then followed.

You will need (Ingredients) :

1 -2 chicken breasts

½ large zucchini sliced

2 cloves garlic minced

Green onions minced

Assorted mushrooms sliced

¼ cup chicken stock

Salt

Cayenne pepper

Instructions:

In a hot pan, add rice oil.  Add garlic and zucchini.  Season with salt and cayenne pepper.  Cook until beginning to tender.  Add green onion.  Continue to cook until green onion begins to soften.  Remove contents of pan to a dish.

Add some more oil, add the chicken.  Season with salt and cayenne pepper.  Cook until you can no longer see pink.  Add mushrooms.  Once mushrooms begin to soften, add chicken stock.  Continue to cook until mushrooms are cooked through and sauce thickens.

Add vegetables pack into pan.  Heat and combine.

Serve.

Again, this was wonderful!  We will be eating this more! 🙂
