What's for dinner? November 30, 2011

So many of us are busy with kids, work, school, volunteering, and a myriad of other things that planning a menu for the family every night can be the last thing anyone wants to do at 11:00 at night.

I am going to try a "What's for dinner?" segment on South 35th. There will likely not be any life changing recipes or ideas on here, and most of the main entrees will be geared toward easy, affordable, and low carbohydrate recipes.

If you have a goof recipe, or link to one, I would love to hear it. :)

Main entree:

Crock Pot Beef Fajitas
  • 1 1/2 lb. beef flank steak
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes
  • 6 low carb tortillas
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • any extras your family likes such as: cheese, sour cream, olives, and so on. 
1.Trim fat from meat and cut into 6 pieces.

2.In slow cooker combine onion, cilantro, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Top with meat; add un-drained tomatoes.

3.Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours. To heat tortillas, wrap them in foil and cook at 350 10-15 minutes.

4.Use a fork and shred meat in crock pot. Return meat to crock pot and stir in lime juice. Place shredded meat in tortillas and place all additional ingredients wanted on top.

1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce for the kids with cinnamon and "just like brown sugar".

Spinach and romaine salad with ranch and bacon bits. 

Sugar free generic pudding with homemade whipped cream. Pudding is made with unsweetened coconut milk and the whipped cream is simply heavy whipping cream, some splenda, a tsp vanilla blended until smooth and creamy.
