Hello Foodies, good to see you here! I hope you’ve had a great week so far and now that we are well settled into September, I thought I would create a recipe that would sort of answer some of your questions. As you know, I take pride in creating plant based nutritional recipes, often times emphasizing on Veganism, however I am not a Vegan. My personal philosophy is a balanced diet, with respect to all living things, whether that be a plant, an animal or a farmer, which is why I chose to support the companies who’s vision align with mine. On the same note, I enjoy looking at food from different perspectives, which drives me to passionately create recipes to support everyone’s choices.
I won lie to you, I am a big carnivore! My Brazilian background wouldn’t let me get too far anyways… However, nowadays I prefer to follow a balanced diet, where meat only fits in on occasion. When it does, I be sure it has been humanely raised.
So, now that we’ve clear things up and I assume you are a meat lover, hence you are still reading this post ha-ha… I’ve prepared the BEST Steak Fajitas ever! I kid you not, this recipe is incredibly tasty, juicy, tender, spicy but not the kind that will make you cry. Not to brag but we Brazilians know our meat well, so I can guarantee you will make the best steak with this easy recipe.
What to pair this tasty steak with? This recipe is so tasty and filling, you won’t need much to serve along. However a dish of plain rice or quinoa is always a great option. Or simply enjoy this delicious Steak Fajitas with lots of grilled veggies. Let’s get to this recipe, shall we 🙂
