Char Grilled Mexican ‘Stir-Fry’

Last night I whipped up a very simple and delicious dish that is packed with flavour. I call it my Char Grilled Mexican ‘Stir-fry’.

I started by preparing my veg, cutting to size and drizzling with olive oil. Yellow and Green Capsicum, Spanish Onion, Tomatoe and Sugar Loaf Cabbage.

When cutting the onion and cabbage I was sure to keep the stalk end intact and cut length wise to prevent the wedges falling apart on the grill.

I then char grilled the veg on a HOT BBQ until smokey, blackened and just tender. Around 6-8mins a side.

Next the rump steak was seasoned with salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, Mexican chilli powder, ground cumin and ground coriander then seared on the BBQ for 3 mins a side and allowed to rest while I chopped the veg into ‘stir-fry’ lengths.

Finally I added the chopped veg, meat juices and thinly sliced beef to a hot pan and tossed all together with ground cumin and coriander, smoked paprika, chilli powder, garlic, salt and pepper, juice of one lime and a little more olive oil. All the seasonings can be adjusted to taste.

I wasn’t sure how grilled cabbage would go but I’ve gotta say it was AMAZING!!! So sweet and smoky. I can’t wait to grill loads more cabbage on the barbie this summer.

This past week has flown by with some very busy days on the road! I’m going strong with the LCHF lifestyle and excited for the next weigh in coming up.

I’m also soooooo proud of my partner who has joined me in this new way of eating healthy and is steamrolling her weightloss journey!

We’ve had a few big successes at work of late so the boss put on a BBQ by the hwy for us all. Being an LCHF eater I was able to partake with much delight!

Bacon and Eggs has become a staple for me now and I’m seriously enjoying taking crispy strips of steaky bacon and making ‘Bacon Soldiers’ for my egg yolks!

I’m looking forward to getting home in a few days and grabbing some bulletproof coffees too.
