Carne Asado Tacos

Very good marinade for this recipe. This is a grilled recipe but I just did it in my cast iron for convenience.

Ground Beef and Chorizo Tacos

This was a pretty simple recipe that ended up having a lot of flavor. I can see us doing these as weeknight tacos pretty regularly, and it helped me use up some chorizo.

Steak and Nopales Tacos

Was happy to find nopales at the Mexican market in Philly and used them to experiment with this taco recipe. They’re pretty fun to work with!

Grilled Steak Fajitas

These fajitas are basically perfect (no surprise they’re inspired by the original Ninfa’s in Houston). This makes a ton, and the leftover meat is really nice in a steak salad, too.

Flank Steak Peperonata

We were quite into this – the pepper mixture almost upstaged the steak (which granted, I slightly overcooked).

Nom Nom Mexican Beef “Tacos”

This meat was delicious, but it made a ton. Super simple, too. Next time, we’ll halve the recipe.

Steak Tacos

John in particular liked this marinade for steak tacos. We had with homemade flour tortillas (recipe to follow).

Bon App Stroganoff

A slightly fancier take on one of my favorite dishes. I meant to add dill, but forgot.

Marcella Hazan’s Bolognese

This is a very traditional bolognese, and while time-consuming, pretty easy. I did want a slightly higher sauce-to-pasta ratio, though; call me an American.
