[recipe] Beef with Lime and Honey

Thought of another way to combine my favorite ingredients into an artery-friendly, low-carb, and fast-to-make one-dish meal.

[ At the Grocery Store ]
- Beef, 0.85 pounds pre-cut into strips for stir fry ($5)
- Cilantro, one bunch ($1)
- Cherry tomatoes, one bag, about 12 oz ($4)
- Mushrooms, one box or just a handful ($3)
- Onion, one small size ($0.25)
- Lime, one ($0.25)
- ----------
- Honey (or sugar)
- Cumin

[ Direction ]
- Marinade beef with:
   - Half cup chopped cilantro
   - Half an onion, thinly sliced and separated

   - Generous salt and pepper
   - Generous honey (~2 tablespoons)
   - Juice of half a lime
   - Cumin (~1 teaspoon)
   - Drizzle of olive oil
   - Hot pepper flakes to taste

- Halves about 1/3 of the bag of tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Slice up a handful of mushrooms

- Oil on high heat
- Pour everything in: Beef + Cilantro + Onion + Tomatoes + Mushrooms
- Stir-fry for just a few minutes
- While stir-frying, chop up the rest of the cilantro
- Fold in all chopped cilantro at the last minute and then serve

[ Stats ]
