I work from home. My kitchen is two rooms down from me. And yet, I skip lunch often. I know this isn’t good but, I am guilty of it. In an effort to make sure I am not skipping lunch, I’ve been having loads of yummy salads. Why? Salads are easy and it doesn’t take me a lot of thinking and preparing. As I’ve indulged in my creative salad-making, I decided to give it a little twist. A flavorful and bold one. So I put my thinking cap on to figure out what I could make with habanero.
So, off I went to Publix with my list! PS: why do I always end up getting sucked into the BOGO sales and feeling mighty proud to have strayed from my list? The frog princess was with me and I enlisted her in helping me find my secret ingredient! El Yucateco Red Habanero Sauce.
So…um…I couldn’t help myself and bought all three! I got the last of the XXXtra Hot Kutbil-ik Sauce. Yassss! It is time to get my #SauceOn, people.
The resulting dish was…superb! I’m calling it my Yucateco Habanero Steak Salad. I loved that the steak was filled with flavor with a kick on the back end. It wasn’t spicy (for those of you that are afraid of a little heat). But the bold taste made me feel like I was eating an entire meal as opposed to have a plain ol’ salad.
It was easy peasy lemon squeezy and I had a hearty salad that allowed me to check “lunch” off the list and feel good about what I had eaten.
- 1/2 lb of Top Round steak, sliced and halved
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 2 tablespoons of Yucateco Red Habanero Sauce
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 bag of Publix spring mix salad
- 2 slices of avocado
- 1 lime
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- Season the steak with salt, pepper and Yucateco Red Habanero Sauce. Make sure you coat the meat so that each bite will absorb the flavor. In a hot pan, add the olive oil and when heated, put steak in the pan. Add a half a cup of water and set the temperature to medium heat to let the steak cook. Once the water has cooked out, while constantly stirring, let the steak brown and char a bit (about 5 minutes).
- In a bowl, add the spring mix salad, cut up the slices of avocado and sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Add one slice of lime, stir and then add the other. Do the same for the olive oil.
- Plate the salad and add the cooked steak to the top of it. Serve immediately.
- If a little more heat is desired, use an additional tablespoon of the sauce when you add the water to the pan or, if direct heat is preferred, add a few drops after the salad has been plated.
