Menu Plan Monday...Or.. Let Mom Do the Cooking!


Well, I hadn't planned to post any menus this week.....simply because I'm not at home and will be doing more helping than actual meal planning. But my mom is making one of our families very favorite meals tonight and I had to share it!

Tacos Al Carbon

4 lbs. sirloin or porterhouse steak, cubed into small pieces
(you can use part chicken, too, if you'd like)
2 lemons
2 limes
garlic salt
salt & pepper
Place cubed meat into a ceramic/glass dish and squeeze the lemons and limes over the meat. Season with the salts and pepper. Stir and marinate for 1-2 hours. When ready to cook, simply fry in a skillet with a little oil. Serve hot with warm tortillas, queso al carbon and bandera sauce.

Queso Al Carbon

1 1/2 lbs. Monterrey Jack cheese, cubed
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 250F. Place the cheese in a deep casserole dish and bake until completely melted and bubbly.

Bandera Sauce

ripe tomatoes, chopped
onion, chopped
jalapenos, chopped
mix all together and serve.

The way I love to eat these: grab a warm flour tortilla, spread the melted cheeses all down the middle, add a good spoonful of the steak, top with bandera sauce, wrap all into tortilla and dig in!!

We hardly have any sides with this meal because we make such pigs of ourselves with the tacos!! They are just incredibly delicious!! For more great menus this week, head over to Laura's at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Oh WOW!! That looks fantastic. I am going to have to make that soon. I bet even just the cheese would be so good with some tortilla chips, but when you put the whole thing together...yum!

Enjoy your week.
