Steak Quesadillas



This Steak Quesadilla is one of my family favorites Tex-Mex dish. It's perfect meal to pair with Salsa Fresca and Guacamole. For this recipe, you can substitute with chicken, if beef is not your preferred meat.




Steak Quesadillas

Ingredients

3 (about 650 grams) Sirloin Steaks, sliced (about ¼ inch thick)

2 Tbsp Fajita/Steak Seasoning

1 Red Bell Pepper, cut into strips

1 Green Red Pepper, cut into strips

1 Large White Onion, thinly sliced
4 Serrano or Jalapeno, seeded & cut into strips
½ Cup Pickled Jalapeno
300 to 350 grams Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese/Tex-Mex Blend

Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
5 to 6 (10 inches) Tortilla Wraps
Salsa Fresca
Guacamole

Method



Season the beef slices with sea salt, black pepper and 1 tablespoon of the Fajita. Let it marinate for about 20 to 30 minutes. When ready to cook, mix in the olive oil to loosen the meat. Divide the meat into 3 to 4 portions.

Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick pan over medium heat until hot. Add 1-½ tablespoons of olive oil, follow by a portion of the peppers, onions, and sauté until the onions are softened, about 5 to 6 minutes, and push it on one side of the pan.

Add about 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan, a portion of the beef, and when the beef starts to sizzle, season with Fajita/steak seasoning, turn over and cook the other side. Then sauté the meat and vegetables together until well combine and the meat still pink inside.

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and spread a layer cheese on one side of the tortilla. Then scatter some meat and vegetables, pickled jalapeno, season with some sea salt and pepper, and top with another layer of cheese.

Fold the tortilla in half and then carefully flip over. Continue cooking, pressing down lightly with a spatula, until its other side is golden brown, crispy, and the cheese has melted. 


Slide the tortilla onto a plate repeat with the remaining tortilla, cheese, meat and vegetables, and pickled jalapeno. To serve, cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges, serve with some Salsa Fresca and Guacamole.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
