RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS! Beef in a Sriracha Mustard marinade skewered with cherry tomatoes and grilled! An easy recipe that will become a family favorite!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard (I used French’s)
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp Worchestershire Sauce
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced (I always use my lemon zester to grate my garlic)
  • 1 – 2 lbs steak, cut into chunks about the size of your cherry tomatoes
  • cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro or parsley, roughly chopped (optional)

PREPARATION:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, Sriracha sauce, honey, worchestershire sauce, olive oil and garlic.  Reserve 1/3 cup marinade and refridgerate until ready to grill skewers.  Add the remaining marinade to a large baggie, add beef and marinate overnight if possible or at least for a couple of hours.

Preheat grill to high.  Remove marinated beef from refrigerator.  To assemble skewers, alternate a couple beef cubes with a cherry tomato until all skewers are assembled.  Discard beef marinade in the baggie.  Spray or rub grill with oil to prevent sticking.  Place skewers on grill, basting with remaining 1/3 cup of marinade. Cook until beef is cooked to desired doneness.  They cook really fast so keep a close eye on them! Just a couple of minutes per side for medium ~ that’s our preference so adjust your time accordingly.  Let rest for a couple of moments, sprinkle with cilantro or parsley and serve. Enjoy!

NOTE:   If using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in water for a while.  If you have metal skewers, use them instead as the wooden skewers will burn with the high heat of the grill.  I preboiled some baby potatoes, tossed them with some olive oil and herbs and also skewered them to cook on the grill with the Sriracha Skewers.  I put them on a few minutes before the beef skewers to let them cook longer and get nice and crispy. It was am AMAZING meal! 🙂 Serve with a green salad and a nice crisp white wine!

An easy, healthy egg dish full of fresh vegetables that finishes cooking in the oven in 15 – 20 minutes …see notes below to find different variations on this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 – 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 small zucchini, ends trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 small red pepper, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1 small green pepper, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, whole
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or 1 TBSP fresh oregano (I actually used a little fresh oregano and basil)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, break eggs, add milk, season with salt and pepper and add red pepper flakes if using.  Whisk until well blended.  Set aside.

In a large ovenproof frying pan (non stick or cast iron), heat oil over medium high heat. Add zucchini and red and green peppers and cook for 3 – 5 minutes until slightly softened ~ it will continue to cook in the oven.  Add tomatoes and oregano and season with salt and pepper.  Add egg mixture to frying pan. Cook for a couple of minutes until the bottom of the frittata sets.  Spinkle on feta cheese and carefully put the frying pan into a preheated oven.

Cook for 15 – 20 minutes until the eggs are set in the middle. Turn on the broiler and broil until top of frittata is lightly browned.  Serve warm or at room temperature. ENJOY!

NOTE: This Frittata is very versatile.  Have it with breakfast with whole grain toast and a small fruit salad or for lunch or dinner with a side salad. Change up the flavors with whatever vegetables you have on hand ~ make it italian by adding some fresh or dried basil and some fresh buffalo mozzarella, add some ham and cheddar cheese with some green pepper and onion for a Denver Frittata ~ the possibilities are endless!
