I’m not sure if you’re like me or not, but sometimes I crave certain foods, but want them differently. For example, I want eggs, but I want an egg burrito. Or like a couple weeks ago, I wanted a steak and blue cheese salad….but wrapped in burrito form lol!! There’s just something about wrapping up your favorite foods in a tortilla and having that great little package in your hand to chow down on, adding whatever little extras you want to make it your own. So…I fulfilled my craving and did just that.
I LOVE the combination of steak and blue cheese, and steak and caramelized onions, and…..well you get the point. So I made all the things I like to have with steak and made my own little taco bar out of it! I used rib-eye steak, and seasoned it with some warm spices before searing it, slicing it and serving it up with my sides. So here’s what I ended up with!!!!
For 2 steaks
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper
Season steaks liberally. Cook steaks over medium-high heat, turning once, to desired doneness. Set aside.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 medium yellow onions, halved and sliced paper thin (about 4 cups)
Freshly ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium-low heat until foaming.
Add the onions, and let them cook, stirring rarely, until they are deep golden brown and caramelized, about 45 minutes. Season well with salt and pepper, remove from the pan, and let cool.
Here’s the other good stuff I decided to add to my taco….be creative and make it fun to eat!!! It can be anything you want it to be!
Blue Cheese Dressing
I even pulled out my “tortilla” holders that I got in Mexico to hold the warm tortillas in until Ludmilla got home..she loved it!!!!
Of course don’t forget that ice cold cerveza to wash it down with!!!!!!!
Have a great weekend!
