What's For Dinner?

To manage your expectations I just wanted to let you know that I am not a chef nor am I a great cook. I'm just an average woman who's trying to find easy to prepare and cook meals for the family.  

Easy to prepare is important. Back in the Philippines, where I was born and raised, we had help at home. When I learned to cook at home (in my early twenties) I had someone helping me peel and chop the onions. I come from a family of great cooks. All of them asked me (and my cousins) to step out of the kitchen because they were too busy making us great meals. They have gotten so used to making them they forgot to pass on the skills and knowledge to me and my cousins. Hence, I started learning in my early twenties. 

But cooking Filipino food here in the US is a challenge. Most of the meals back home were heavy on preparation. So I rarely make them. Plus I have finicky eaters at home that would rather have some Thai dish or bacon. Hahahaha! Seriously. Plate of bacon. Not healthy. It was a challenge at first learning new dishes on my own but I braved the storm and after some tears shed (not from peeling onions) my confidence in my cooking have improved. So tonight I decided to share with you what I made for dinner that partied in our tummies. 

 

 

For the salad you will need your favorite greens (I used baby spinach), cranberries and glazed walnuts, slide toasted almonds, raspberry vinaigrette dressing, fresh strawberries, and fresh parmesan cheese.

The only preparing you will have to make for this salad is slicing the strawberries in thin slices. You may choose not to use strawberries at all or replace it with blueberries or raspberries.

Put all the ingredients together in a bowl. Toss. Top it off with some parmesan cheese. Feta cheese would also go well with this salad.

I plated the salad as I grill my beef. I got some boneless beef short ribs from the local Korean market nearby. Usually they sell it marinated but ask the butcher if they have some in the freezer that has not been marinated and season it your own way at home. The bone-in short ribs strips are more expensive. I did not need it for this recipe. I just needed tender beef that will cook easily and is tasty. it cost me about $5.00 for a pound. Not bad considering I only used half of it to serve two.

I put my meat in a mixing bowl and seasoned it with salt and pepper first. Next I drizzled some sesame oil in it followed by sweet soy sauce. Lastly i added some minced garlic and tossed it. All done while my grill pan was heating on top of the stove.

It's no five star recipe but it's definitely yummy, affordable, and easy to make. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think. I also would love to hear about your simple healthy recipes and perhaps try them out. Please let it be as simple as this one. Hehehe!
