Recipe Redo: Carne Bistec

Originally posted in April of 2012, I thought this recipe could do with a little picture update!

Well, time seems have gotten away from me. Sorry about that, but I'm back. Trying to balance school and work has proven to be a difficult task. But I have finally gotten into graduate school, so I'm not nearly as worried about everything as I was.

This recipe comes courtesy of Skinnytaste, by far one of my favorite websites and my blog inspiration. It is delicious, just make sure you are on the heavier side with the spices. I served it with brown rice, but Gina suggests serving it with a sunny side egg on top. With a side salad, it is a complete and delicious meal!

1 large or 2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced or chopped
1 large onion, thinly sliced or chopped

  2. Congrats on graduate school! The pic of the seasoned steak is my favorite! It all looks so good, though:)

  3. Yay!!! Congrats on getting into graduate school! I know it's super difficult to balance life, school, blogging, etc..but once you get in the swing of things, you'll figure it out! And if you're totally pooped, then give yourself a much deserved rest so you can continue! Good luck!
