So tonight I was looking in the freezer. I spied some beef tips that I really needed to use up, but wanted to so something a bit different from my usual. I also saw that I had some cilantro pesto frozen as well.
I started dinner off with a nice salad that included the following
Tree lettuce ( yes, tree lettuce: it is like bin lettuce only it grows on a stalk sort of like a tree.
Chopped yellow and res sweet peppers
Lemon olive oil and Balsamic vinegar
I enjoyed my salad while the need tips were marinating.
I took the beef tips and pounded them to help tenderize them. I then marinated them in lemon juice with a crushed piquin pepper, some salt and black pepper.
I cut some onion into rings and strips of yellow and red pepper, then sauteed them in olive oil. Once done I set them aside and kept them warm.
Then I added the beef tips to the pan and cooked them until done to medium. Removes them from the pan sliced them against the grain and tossed them with a bit of the cilantro pesto.
Served with sour cream and chopped tomatoes.
I call them naked because I didn’t use any tortillas.
