Valentine’s Day Breakfast

So this morning my wonderful husband made breakfast! You gotta love it! On the menu…..Fajita Beef Strips, Fried egg and Sautéed Mushrooms with Bell Peppers. I have provided pics for you to savor.

It is quite a simple dish to prepare. You’ll need the following ingredients to begin. Note: I am a firm believer that you don’t need to stick to a recipe 100% and that you may substitute whatever you like for something that you don’t. Although if you’re not that familiar or knowledgeable about particular spices or audacious enough in the kitchen then you might want to stick with the ingredients mentioned.

Bell pepper --- any color would suffice but orange and yellow (even red) give the dish a beautiful color.

Baby portabella mushrooms --- sliced thin, because mushrooms shrink when cooked you’ll need an entire carton.

Buffalo Wing sauce --- I know this might raise an eyebrow but once poured over the sautéed mushrooms and bell peppers (about 2 Tbs) it provides a nice tangy flavor.

Beef --- the best kind of cut to use for a dish such as this would probably be Rib-Eye (that’s what we used and it was very tender). Cut the beef into long bite size pieces, think about fajita’s you order at your favorite restaurant…. just like that! Add salt, pepper to taste.

Eggs --- 2 fried eggs (or whatever style you prefer) add about a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Olive Oil --- a staple product in our house. Use this to sauté the mushrooms and bell peppers as well as fry the beef strips and eggs. Use sparingly as needed.

Enjoy!!!! My contribution to this fabulous meal.…… Strawberry Mimosas

To Make:
2 parts (or 3… hey it’s the weekend) Champagne and 2 parts strawberry juice ( I used Welch's) Cheers!
