Paleo: Mexican Flank Steak

10 Jul

I made this delicious recipe last week.  It has definitely made my list of top Paleo recipes.  Publix was slap out of Flank Steak, but I used Flap Steak instead – it was still delicious.  I found the recipe on my Paleo App.  Try it out and enjoy!

Mexican Flank Steak

Recipe Ingredients:

1.5 pounds flank steak (flap steak)

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon oregano

Pinch, cayenne pepper

2 limes, juiced

1 orange, juiced

8-12 ounces beer (or beef broth – I used beef broth)

Cooking Instructions:

Slice the steak on the diagonal into thin strips.  Combine all ingredients in a large ziploc bag or in a shallow dish (meat should be completely covered in liquid).  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.  Take out and drain off the marinade.  Lightly salt the steak.  The meat can be cooked in a skillet with coconut oil or grilled.  Cook 3-6 minutes on each side for medium-rare.  Makes 6 servings.

If you know me, I added some ingredients.  🙂  I sauteed a red, green and yellow bell pepper for a few minutes prior to cooking the steak.  I added the steak to the hot skillet, cooked for a bit and then topped with the bell peppers.  I cannot explain to you how delicious this dish is!  I served it with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans.  Oddly enough, all the tastes blended well with each other.

What’s in that Kool-Aid?

CrossFit is often referred to as a cult.  I can understand why CrossFit has acquired this label.  What person, in their right mind, voluntarily subjects themselves to the WODs and to eating like a caveman?  Gah, that’s just insane, right?!?!

I suppose you wouldn’t understand until you try it.  I drink the dang kool-aid at least three days a week and it tastes good!  I bet you’re asking yourself, “What exactly is in that kool-aid”?  Well, let’s have some fun and “create” my kool-aid.
