The sirlion tip strips I had on hand weighed just under a pound.. I was going grill kabobs with them but the weather yesterday just wouldn’t cooperate 😬 And of course I have to leave out today on a load..
So after I made and had my breakfast of squashed chicken and a salad, ( yes I eat dinner for breakfast and visa versa sometimes 😛 ) I figured I might as well use up the onion and baby bellas.. I’m glad I did, this will be great to alternate with the chicken this week 😊
About a pound of sirlion tip strips cut into bite size pieces
1/2 medium Vidalia onion sliced thick
8 baby bella mushrooms sliced thick
8 mini red and orange sweet peppers quartered
Himalayan Pink salt coarsely ground to taste
Coarsely ground black pepper to taste
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp EVOO
Coat pan with EVOO
Spread veggies in pan
Spread meat evenly across the veggies
Add dry spices
Spread the minced garlic on top of meat
Put in preheated oven 450 f about 15 minutes or until meat is done..
Serve over white or brown rice or bowtie pasta or egg noodles..
Yum Yum 😄
The tasty juices can be thickened with some cornstarch but I’ll let the juices be as they are..
UPDATE about 11 hours since the post..
I had my first meal from the sirloin tips and taste tested it until it was gone 😁
Each forkful seemed better than the last.. And it took only 20 minutes to put together.. I wanted a salad with my meal but didn’t want to get into chopping up veggies.. And really I felt like a wilted spinach salad.. So here’s what I did..
I boiled my bowties in beef broth in my little silicone steamer which is a fantastic “in the pot” colander for draining the liquid away right back in the pot.. Essentially, pasta goes from pot to bowl, no draining liquid at a sink (which I don’t have anyway in the truck ) 👍
Then I crumbled a small handful of corn tortilla chips and put them to the side..
When the pasta was ready I took the spinach and beef tips out of the fridge..
First in the bowl was half the pasta, then immediately added a healthy dose of spinach and topped that with the rest of the pasta, then topped that with the beef tips and sprinkled the tortilla chips on top..
I took the finished pic within a minute of assembling it together, if you look closely, the darker green in the spinach is the wilting action from the bowties.. After about 2 minutes I began gobbling it down.. The beef tips and sauce had become room temp the spinach and pasta were warm like I was aiming for.. And the minced garlic is deliciously dotted throughout.. This was a pretty lazy concoction from the simple roasting of the veggies and sirloin tips this morning and only needing to cook some pasta this evening.. The dish itself cooked the finishing touches 😄
I can’t tell you how much it tickles me to find short cuts that have great results.. Short of winning the lottery, it feels pretty darn good 😉
