It's Food Matters Monday! This week Margarita of Let's Cook and Be Friends chose Mark Bittman's recipe for Not Your Usual Steak Fajitas. Mark's recipe calls for beef or chicken and lots of vegetables. After a quick stir fry the ingredients are topped with a tequila-lime glaze. He suggests serving it with warm tortillas or over brown rice.
I was really looking forward to this recipe as I LOVE Mexican food. I'm not sure why but I had no energy all weekend. I didn't want to cook anything. I thought that maybe I would make this tomorrow and then I remembered the grilled vegetable bar at Whole Foods. And the cooked brown rice. And the guacamole....And I live 10 minutes away! I picked up a nice assortment of smoky grilled veggies. Carrots, chile peppers, pineapple, zucchini, onions, portabellos, pineapple, cooked brown rice and a scoop of guacamole. When I got home I sliced the veggies a little smaller and then put the pineapple in a pan with lime juice and tequila. When it reduced to a glaze I added the rest of the vegetables and warmed it all up. How easy is that? I did miss the beef but I needed a veggie meal after my not so healthy eating binge all weekend.
Great pick Margarita!
