Easy Beef Bulgogi in Lettuce Wraps

Posted on November 19, 2019 by

Hint: Partially freezing the meat prior to cutting it will allow for a nice thin slice or ask the meat department to slice it for you.

Ingredients
1 lb flank steak
2 Tbls vegetable oil
1 small apple, shredded
½ red onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbls red chili paste
1 Tbls soy sauce
1 Tbls brown sugar or brown sugar substitute
1 Tbls sesame oil
4 green onions, sliced
1 jalapeno, diced
Sesame seeds for garnish
1 head Bibb or Boston lettuce
1 package riced cauliflower

Directions

  1. Slice meat and place into a gallon sized resealable bag. Add shredded apple, onion, chili paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, jalapeno and all but 2 Tbls of the green onion tops (to garnish riced cauliflower). Allow meat to marinate 2-4 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Arrange meat slices in single layer and turn after browning – about 2-3 minutes. Brown on other side and then add remaining marinade mix to pan. Cook 2-3 minutes.
  3. Serve with lettuce leaves and riced cauliflower. Garnish with remaining green onion and sesame seeds.

Fun With Eggs!

Posted on April 05, 2019 by

It’s no secret that eggs pack a great little protein punch and are extremely versatile in your diet. They average about 70-80 calories and contain 6-7 grams of protein. They are rich in choline, which helps promote normal cell activity and aids in the transportation of vitamins and minerals through your system. Eggs contain all 9 of the amino acids that are essential to your diet. What don’t they do?  They don’t add to your carb count!

This time of year, you’ll see eggs everywhere – have you colored a batch yet?  (You don’t need a child’s help but it could make it more fun). Pick up a dozen – or two – and make your own this weekend!  We made a batch last weekend with this no-mess trick that’s great for little fingers.

You’ll need a bag of rice and some basic liquid food coloring along with a number of small plastic containers with tight-fitting lids.  I picked up the rice & containers at the local dollar store.

Start with this great tip on cooking the perfect hard-boiled eggs.  Allow them to cool and dry completely.

Put about 3/4 – 1 cup of rice to each container and add 8-10 drops of coloring to each cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shake the container to distribute the coloring to the rice.  Open the container and add a hard boiled egg, reseal and hand to a small child to shake!

 

 

 

 

Remove the colored eggs from the cups and lay on a paper towel to dry completely. You can make them multi-colored by tossing them into a second color.  If the rice seems to be drying out, add a few more drops of coloring and shake before adding a new egg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy these colorful treats & Happy Easter everyone!
