Leftover Chili Taco Bowls
This week's lentil chili recipe makes a fantastic base for a healthy weeknight taco bowl!
I have a great secret to tell you about steak.
It looks fancy. It sounds fancy. It has a fancy price on many restaurant menus.
But there is absolutely a such think as a weeknight steak — because they take like 10 whole minutes to cook. And while you can spend $20+/lb. on some cuts, you can also spend $10/lb., which means for dinner for two, you’re looking at a whole $5 (plus the veggies). This one here is an example of the less expensive end, a flank steak that is fun to eat because of the way you cut it into thin strips across the bias. I like it, at least.
Now, I do think that a marinade is a good idea, but it only needs to be 30 minutes or so (and longer would be great). BUT that gives you plenty of time to wash and prep the veggies and dressing, and of course, give a bottle of red wine a little air before you pour yourself a glass. I think the ideal timeline goes like this:
Not only is it actually easy, it still makes a weeknight meal pretty special. I think we will be doing this more often.
