Steak & Veggie Stir Fry

September 10, 2012

A couple of things before this recipe. First, don’t buy “stir fry steak” that is pre-cut and pre-packaged unless you know the butcher really well. Most of that kind of stuff is the worst or “left over” cuts of meat that they have laying around. Get yourself a good lean cut of meat (I like lean strip or sirloin) and tenderize it well (beat it, basically) and then slice into small pieces, this will yield a great stir fry. Second, don’t cheap out on the balsamic vinegar, get a good grade of it, you won’t regret it.  Now that we have that out of the way, here we go:


Take a wok, warm it up and allow some Olivio Light to melt in it, add red, yellow and green peppers plus red onions and let them cook a bit, season with salt, pepper, basil and thyme. Add in your steak and let it cook until its seared on all sides but not quite done in the middle. Add in your spinach and then about three tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and cook it down. Finally, add in some already steamed green beans and stir well. This is pretty delicious and a really pretty dish. Enjoy!

Mexican Meatloaf w/ sautéed Spinach & Green Beans

September 8, 2012

This idea was born out of my desire for something a little different to eat. Hope you enjoy it.

Take 1 and 1/2 pound of quality ground beef, mix in a bowl with sautéed onions (in Olivio), salsa (diced tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, mix and chill for about a hour), reduced fat Mexican blend cheese and two eggs. Form into a loaf and place in a baking dish. Bake for about 75 minutes on 350 and top with cheddar and salsa.

Sauté spinach in a Olivio with onions, peppers and mushrooms with a little fresh lemon juice.

Steam green beans and top with Olivio.

It looks gross but tastes great. 🙂
