Beef Taco Tortilla Bowls

I love Mexican cuisine as much as Tex-Mex food. I mean, who would say no, right?! A bit of Texas with a bit of Mexico and you get an amazing combo bursting with flavor.

These beef taco bowls are just incredibly tasty. You can make it more spicy or mild. It is all how you prefer your food, that is why you have to taste.

Add a pinch of this and that until you reach your preference. I always say you can add more seasoning later, so add just a pinch or two and taste.

Broiled Flank Steak

Broiled Flank Steak

Broiled Flank Steak

Delicious Broiled Flank Steak! How do you like it, rare, medium-rare or well done?

I am medium rare to a well-done type of person… or at least somewhere in between.

I desperately wanted to grill this one the other day or at least smoke it.

Well, the continuous rain kept me from doing it, so the next best thing was grilling it under the broiler.

Broiled Flank Steak

The fragrant spices were perfect, and it tasted really tasty.

You know Flank Steak could be a bit chewy or tough, but I think it depends on where you buy your meat, as well as how old it was.

The flank makes a mean fajita, and it’s also an excellent choice for bibimbap, stir-fries, or even Philly cheesesteak.

It is just so delicious that I could eat it every other day.

Broiled Flank Steak

I got to say that this method of cooking a steak is popularly called London Broil.

Tougher pieces of meat, commonly, flank or top round steak, are left to marinate overnight.

Then you should be broiled under high heat and served by thinly slicing the meat across the grain.

Broiled Flank Steak

I typically served it low carb for my family. Well, my kids had bread, of course. We are carb lovers after all.

However, my lovely husband and I enjoyed it with some oven-roasted ranch cauliflower cooked in steak dripping.

The other dish was sauteed cabbage in garlic Alfredo sauce, which was perfect. Needless to say, we inhaled this delicious meal.

If you follow Low-Carb Diet this meat is perfect. You can combine it with cabbage like I served my air-fryer ribs or cauliflower, maybe a bowl of greens.

Broiled Flank Steak
Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Broiled Flank Steak

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Marinating Beef: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes

Tasty and easy recipe for Broiled Flank Steak

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds Flank Steak

For the marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice Lime juice, Vinegar, or similar acid for tenderizing the meat
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic grated or pressed in a garlic press
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon per side Grill/Barbecue Spices

Instructions

  1. Coat the flank steak with marinade: Place the steak in a shallow dish, like a 9×13-inch baking dish. Whisk together all the marinade ingredients and pour over the steak. Rub the marinade into the steak and flip the steak once or twice in the dish to coat.
  2. Marinate for about 3 hours (it can marinate overnight in the fridge, covered). Cover the dish and place the steak in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Turn the steak occasionally maybe after minutes. If you leave it overnight try to flip after a couple of hours. 
  3. Heat the broiler and prepare the pan: Set your broiler to its highest setting. Place an oven rack a few inches below the broiler element.
  4. Drizzle the pan with oil and place the steak on.
  5. Remove the steak from the marinade, shake off the excess, and place it in the middle of the broiler pan. Place the pan it under the broiler. Cook for 7-10 minutes per side. This all depends on your taste; rare, medium rare or well done.
  6. The steak is done when the edges are a bit charred and crispy, and you see some dark searing on the top. Using your meat thermometer, check the temperature in the thickest part with an instant-read thermometer: 115F to 120F for a rare steak, 120F to 125F for a medium-rare steak, and 140F to 145F for medium-well steak.
  7. Note that If additional cooking is needed, cook for another minute or two for every 10 degrees needed; transfer the steak to the oven if it’s becoming too crisp on the edges.
  8. This is a very important part Transfer the steak to a cutting board and allow it to rest for at least 5 minutes.
  9. Slice the steak into very thin slices using a sharp knife, cutting against the grain. Transfer the slices to a serving platter, then pour the juices from the pan and cutting board over the meat and toss to coat.

Notes

Grilled Flank Steak: Instead of broiling, you can also grill flank steak over very high heat on a gas or charcoal grill. The cooking times are the same.

You may marinate this from 3 hours to overnight. The Flank steak takes marinates very well so it will tenderize.

I got to tell you that this meal never lasts long on our table. With that being said, I always have to make extra because I love these meatballs in my sandwich the next day.

Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

This is my family’s absolute favorite dish. The meatballs came out so perfect. Especially when you have Italian bread to mop up all that sauce. It is pure comfort food that I’ve been making for years.

This sauce is made with simple and wholesome ingredients. They use imported Italian tomatoes, no paste.

Therefore, it is gluten-free and let’s not forget that Little Italy in the Bronx sauce is actually made in small batches.

Little Italy in the Bronx sauces comes in multiple varieties available at Publix, of course.

You can find Marinara, Tomato Basil, Alla Vodka, Arrabbiata and Alfredo sauce.

Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

EASY AND TASTY DINNER IDEA

Ingredients

  • 16 + pieces cheddar cheese cubed
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste and a generous pinch of each
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus a drizzle to coat the skillet
  • 1 jar 24 oz. Little Italy in the Bronx Marinara

Cheese For the sauce:

  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 8 oz. container ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 ounces freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste a good pinch of both

Instructions

  1. Cube cheese into 1” cubes or use store bought cubed cheddar cheese.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the cheese for the sauce, cover and refrigerate until ready to be used.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Scoop meatball mixture into a small ball (about 2 tablespoons, or a size of a larger golf ball) and press into a disk. Then place in the middle of the patty, 1 cube of cheese (you can use mozzarella string cheese as well) into the center, sealing meat tightly around cheese. Repeat with remaining meatball mixture and cheese.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook to brown on all sides. When the meatballs have developed a nice crust, remove them from the skillet and wipe the skillet clean. Return skillet to stovetop over medium heat. Pour marinara into the skillet then add the meatballs to the sauce. Spoon sauce over the meatballs. Cover the pan with a lid and simmer meatballs for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
  5. Lastly, add previously prepared cheese mixture for the sauce; a spoonful all around the skillet and in between meatballs. Cover and allow it to cook on low heat for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Serve warm over pasta. Garnish with more herbs and parmesan, if desired.

Notes

Leftovers: Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for a month.
