I spend a good deal of my evenings getting home at 8:30 or 9 pm at night. I am in no way complaining. I LOVE my job. I love coaching. But my poor husband…I leave him many nights to fend for himself until I get home (hello peanut m&m’s ®) or he gets fast food (which breaks my heart just a little) or he gets eggs and toast.
Me man. Me need meat.
Hence the non- breakfast post. I needed a meal hearty enough for a man that was healthier than fast food.
Lean beef. Peppers. Garlic. Rice.
This one is super easy. Super delicious. Super healthy. And husband approved. SCORE!
First I made the key west sauce. I don’t remember where I found the original recipe but I have changed it up a bit and it is one of my favorites. A little lime juice, low sodium soy sauce (GF), garlic powder, red pepper flakes, honey, and olive oil. mmmmmhmmm….
When they were almost cooked, I added half of the key west sauce and some pre-cut carrots, edamame, and mushrooms. I added a little water to the mix to keep it from burning and covered it with a lid to keep the steam in to help cook the veggies.
I had some minute brown rice that I made to serve with the meat and veggies. But you could easily eat it without rice or on a bed of greens.
Enjoy!!! And try not to eat all of it in one serving 😉
