Steak Quesadilla’s

Mexican just had to be on the menu last night, inspired by bloggers on the 24 community. I was not planning to, but had taken a tray of minute steak out to thaw yesterday morning. So I thought quesadilla’s it is!

I was wondering if steak quesadilla’s had been done before, and thanks to Google, found lots of recipes.


I fried the minute steak in white pepper and it literally took (yes, you guessed it) minutes. Just a small tip if anyone wants to use minute steak as a filling – do not cut up the steak in small bits before frying! Its much easier to do so after.

I smeared avo on one tortilla. For the avo – I mashed it and added some lemon juice, black pepper and salt. Added the steak bits and then added grated cheese over. Closed it with another tortilla and pan fried it until the cheese melted told together the tortillas.

Served with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.

Chicken Stroganoff

Since I love pasta, I thought I’d try this recipe from the Australian Women’s Weekly. Its very simple to make. It got done faster than I anticipated.

What you need:

  • olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2t paprika
  • 250g sliced mushrooms
  • 1T worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ cup chicken stock (I used water)
  • 1 ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 cooked chicken (I used a bunch of fillets)

What to do:
Heat oil and cook onions. Add paprika. Cook for 2 mins. Add mushrooms and worcestershire sauce. Cook until brown. Add stock and cream – bring to the boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 5 minutes, until sauce thickens. Add the sliced and cubed chicken.

I served it with fettuccine.
