Flavor of the Month Summary: Twofers!

/ Uncategorized

Well it’s been a whirlwind of a month!  Our daughter turned 2, Derek turned 40, we entertained a bunch and got a new dog, I am pooped, but am glad I had these twofer recipes to help make things a little easier.  I hope you all got a chance to try some of them.  For the rundown, I’m doing things a little differently this time by grouping together each coupling under a heading.  Here we go!

Seasoned Skirt Steak and Corn Tortillas:

Beef Fajitas – Skirt steak is cooked in some great seasoning with onion and bell peppers for a great dinner!


Beef Breakfast Tostadas – These tostadas are really one of my favorite leftover ideas yet!  The leftover fajita meat is reheated with scrambled eggs and some cheese and served on top of a crispy fried corn tortillas.  So yummy!  This recipe would also work well with taco meat I bet!


Lemon Marmalade:

Lemon Almond Coffee Cake – This coffee cake is great for so many reasons.  It has an amazing lemon flavor from the marmalade and a wonderful crumble on top.  The marmalade also adds extra moistness and keeps this coffee cake fresh for days!


Lemon Soy Pork Tenderloin – You all know how much I love combining fruity flavors with meats so it’s no surprise I came up with a way to do that using lemon marmalade.  Pork Tenderloin is topped with a sauce combining  lemon marmalade, soy, and a few other ingredients for a really great sauce.   The marmalade adds a touch of sweetness but the lemon retains its tanginess so it’s not too sweet.



London Broil & Caramelized Onion Butter:

London Broil with Caramelized Onion Butter – London Broil is definitely the unsung hero of the beef world!  It’s usually fairly inexpensive, cooks quickly, and takes on marinated beautifully!  It’s definitely going to be a staple for us, especially during grilling season!  This recipe calls for a simple Worcestershire sauce marinade and the highlight is the home madecaramelized onion compound butter as a sauce for the top.  So yummy!


Mushroom Cheesesteaks – The leftover London Broil gets added to sautéed mushrooms and onions and a gooey cheese sauce is added.  It all gets put it onto toasted rolls spread with that wonderful caramelized onion butter.  I cannot wait to make this one again!

So there you have it!  Did you have a favorite?  The upcoming Flavor of the Month is Snack Dinner.  Don’t forget to check out all my Flavor of the Month recipes on my Pinterest board, or you can search for #BtpFlavorofthemonth on Instagram.
