We modified this from the ” Oh She Glows” cookbook so of course there is a vegan option 😜 instead of flank steak – substitute for portobello mushroom caps – both are excellent.
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp of olive oil ( we used garlic infused olive oil )
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Apple sauce
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper – and YES it makes a difference is its freshly ground
Shake that up
Slice a half a pound of flank steak – thin slices
Thinly slice 1/2 a red onion
Marinade in 1/2 of the dressing for 30 min then grill till cooked through – it was raining when we made it so we grilled it in the frying pan but bbq is the way to go –
1/3 cup and for God sakes toast them at 350 for 7-8 min – what a difference in flavor
A big handful of spring mix greens
1/2 sliced Avacado
1/2 peeled and sliced pear ( you choice a yummy pear )
1/2 the walnuts
1/2 the cooked steak
1/2 th left over marinade/dressing!
I keep meaning to post these …. Completely random but yA gotta do these!
1. Homemade Laundry Soap
Mikes mother taught this to me and I’ve been using it ever since ! Less than 7 cents a load!!!
Basically 2 parts Borax
And 1 part Laundry Soda
And I add some Lavender Essential Oil
So 2 cups of borax and 1 cup of soda – 6-7 drops of essential oil
I make about 3-4 times this amount and keep it in a container on the washing machine. You only need 2 tablespoons per load 😄
2. Your Own Bacon!!!! So easy
Get some sliced pork belly – super easy to find…. If yA go to a market – ask your fav butcher -!hut superstore always has it.
We had a friends Dad raise a pig for us last year and had a bunch on our freezer.
Basically all you have to do is lay out the slices in a baking dish. Mix up 2 Tblsp sugar and 1 Tblsp of salt with 2 cups of warm water and a few shakes of liquid smoke – the second time we made it we also added 2 Tblsp of maple syrup. Let the pork belly sit in the brine for a couple of days and then cook it up….. Holy jumpins it’s good!!!!
Now go make some !!!
