Mexican Steak

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. I was skeptical at first that changing my diet would help improve my health. Prior to changing my diet, I had no energy. It wasn’t just tired it was passed exhaustion. But changing my diet has improved almost all areas of my life. I am still dealing with health issues but they are improving and getting better.

One of my favorite cuisines is Mexican or Tex Mex. I, however, don’t do well with spicy hot foods. My renditions of Mexican foods, therefore, tend to be a mild one. I love that many Mexican dishes have lime in it. From my perspective, I think the spices that are Mexican are garlic, cumin, coriander or cilantro, Mexican Oregano and Chipotle pepper. Therefore those spices and herbs are in my recipe.

The notes of orange, lemon, and lime add a nice citrus flavor and some sweetness. There is a smoky heat that comes from the Chipotle pepper that rounds out this steak. I don’t always know where my ideas come from. I got inspired by the citrus and then the idea to add some Garlic Sauce Coconut aminos and it just sort of snowballed from there.

I hope that my recipe and blog can in some small way lift you up or inspire you.

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/8 cup lime juice

2 tablespoons Garlic Sauce Coconut Aminos

1/2 teaspoon Oregano

1/4 teaspoon red pepper

1/4 teaspoon Chipotle pepper

1/4 teaspoon Corriander

1 teaspoon salt

1 minced garlic clove

1 1/2 lbs. thinly sliced flank steak

1 cup  sliced bell peppers

1 cup sliced onions

*top steaks with homemade salsa or store bought and sour cream. Pour a tablespoon or so of reserved marinade on top of each steak.

In a bowl combine orange juice, lemon juice and lime juice, garlic sauce coconut aminos, oregano, paprika, cumin, red pepper, Chipotle, coriander, and salt. Reserve 1/4 cup. Pour the remaining marinade into a gallon-size plastic bag. Place the thinly sliced flank steak into the plastic bag. Marinate the steak for 4 – 6 hours. Remove steak from the plastic bag.
