Eat– for Good Health

For at least a decade in California but probably everywhere by now, the most popular condiment is salsa.  There are many varieties from pineapple to peach.  In a similar way, many varieties of vegetables go well with tacos and burritos.  Tonight I’m making Carne Asada, but I will stir fry vegetables in a separate pan– corn, onions, squash, green-yellow-red peppers to serve on the side.   Canne Asada is perfect for a weekend party.

Carne Asada by .::æ::. Irving .::æ::.

Ingredients for 6 servings:

  • 4 x well trimmed beef Rib Eye Steaks 3/4″ thick
  • 2 T. lime juice
  • 6 x flour tortillas 6″ size
  • 1/4 c. 2% milk cheddar, shredded
  • Salsa
  1. Place steaks in a utility disk. Sprinkle with half the lime juice, rubbing into surface. Turn steaks and repeat using remaining lime juice. Cover and chill.  Prepare coals or use a George Foreman grill.
  2. Wrap tortillas securely in heavy-duty aluminum if you are BBQing.
  3. Place steaks on grill over medium coals. Grill steaks for 12 to 15 min for rare (140 F) to medium (160 F) or possibly to desired doneness, turning once.  Cut steaks into long strips.
  4. Top each steak with an equal amount of cheese. Serve with salsa, vegetables, rice, tortillas, and a lettuce-tomato salad.  Don’t forget the chopped avocada, green salsa, and light sour cream.

    Your recipe for Carne Asada looks easy enough. Sometimes Rob and I buy the skirt steaks, already marinated and prepared in the butcher section.

    Mary Alice, that’s an excellent idea, too. They never have enough vegetables with them, but it’s easy to add more.

    Would you use brown rice with this? I have finally developed a taste for it after reading Gold Standard of Thin.

    Ah, yes, Friday night is perfect for casual dress-up, even if it’s a T-shirt with spangly appliques and jeans.

    Jeans and a fancy T-shirt is comfortable with a kind of stealth appeal. There are many sweet dresses that don’t cost a bundle.

    Thanks for the fashionista idea– better than bringing a blanket. Well, actually I may be giving you some ideas. Truly, there’s nothing more convenient at a beach barbeque.
