How do I cook Cajun fajitas at home?

I need a starting point for a recipe that I can cook at home, but ideally is mall food-court quality at worst or restaurant quality at best. I would try a Cajun recipe first and a Tex Mex recipe, as well. How long does a New York steak bake in an oven at 350 degrees? My problem is that I want to flour-coat the meat. I am looking for any good solutions.

Fajita meat is not flour coated. It’s going in a flour tortilla already.

Sizzling Fajitas

1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Dash hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 pounds meat (boneless, skinless chicken breast, skirt steak or peeled and deveined shrimp)
1 medium onion, halved and sliced lengthwise
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 lime, juiced, for topping
Sour cream, for topping
Salsa, for topping
Guacamole, for topping
Cheddar cheese, shredded, for topping

In a heavy duty resealable plastic bag, combine 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, hot sauce, salt, pepper and your choice of meat. Seal and toss the bag around to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator. *Cook’s Note: 15 minutes for shrimp, 20 minutes for chicken and 1 hour for skirt steak.
Preheat your cast iron servers in a preheated 400 degree F oven for at least 20 minutes, to get a good sizzle when you plate the fajitas.
Heat the outside grill or a large indoor grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the meat from the marinade and place it on the hot grill, discard the marinade. Cook chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, skirt steak about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare and about 2 minutes for shrimp. Slice the chicken and steak into strips if you are using.
In a large skillet heat up the remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and fry the onions and bell peppers until crisp-tender with some salt and pepper.
Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm them in the oven with the servers for 15 minutes.

When you are ready to serve, remove the cast iron servers from the oven and quickly arrange the meat and peppers and onions on it. It will immediately start to sizzle from their fat and moisture. Serve sizzling immediately with the warm tortillas and other accompaniments.

Looking for how Ruth’s Chris cook their steaks, not recipe 4 garlic butter!?

Anyone knows how Ruth’s Chris cook their steaks? Besides the quality of meat & a really hot broiler/over, there must be a method & timing to get the same juicy melt-in-your-mouth perfection that comes on the plate.

Actually I think you have everything right there already.

They use a top quality beef that was raised just for them using their standards. They use a patented broiler that I hear gets up to 1600 or 1800 degrees that would not be doable at home, and they use garlic butt on them to season.

To get a great steak, you have to start out with a great piece of beef – that is half the battle.

I agree, they have one of the better slices of cow available.

edited to add: And I would guess that they dry age their beef. The best steaks are dry aged 6-8 weeks. But any dry ageing is generally better than wet aging using enzymes.

Healthy ho fan beef noodles recipe (حلال)

Not only is this recipe great because it cuts down on the fat by griddling – not frying – the meat, you also get to regulate how you like your steak done by cooking it first. It’s really important to use a good-quality oyster sauce because this is the base flavour. Also, remember the secret to stir-frying is to have all your ingredients prepared before you start.

Serves 2
Ready in 20 minutes
Ingredients
The noodle dish

* 100g wide rice noodles
* 200g lean sirloin steak, trimmed of all fat
* Olive oil spray
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1 teaspoon olive oil
* 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
* 2cm knob of ginger, peeled and finely shredded
* 3 spring onions, cut in half widthways then lengthways through the middle
* 10 small shiitake mushrooms, 5 large ones cut in half
* 100g tenderstem broccoli, sliced lengthways through the middle
* 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
* 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and sliced
* 1 red chilli, sliced

The sauce

* 3 tablespoons premium oyster sauce
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Method: How to cook healthy ho fan beef noodles

1. Boil the kettle. Place the rice noodles in a large bowl, pour over the boiled water and cover with clingfilm. Leave for five minutes or until tender.

2. Drain and rinse under cold water to prevent them sticking together (they will heat up again when you add them to the stir-fry).

3. Heat a griddle pan until smoking. Spritz the steak with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

4. Place the steak onto the griddle pan and grill for one to two minutes on each side. This will give you a nice medium-rare steak.

5. If you like it more or less cooked, change the cooking time accordingly, but remember that when you add the steak to the stir-fry it will cook a little more.

6. Remove from heat and leave to rest for five minutes. Slice thinly widthways.

7. To make the sauce, mix the ingredients together with a splash of water.

8. Heat a wok. Add the olive oil and throw in the garlic, ginger, spring onion, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli and peppers and stir-fry for two minutes.

9. Pour over the sauce, and add the noodles and steak. Give it a big stir until combined and serve topped with the chilli.

Anyone here make purchases from M&M Meat Shops?

Just wondering what you think of the quality of the foods offered from M&M Meat Shops. Do you think that the precooked, reheat from frozen products are generally healthy carried by this particular company? I buy and eats lots from there because it’s less hassle to cook from scratch all the time, what do you think?

I love the ribs that I buy from there.

South Korea says it may rework a US beef deal

Anna Chan:
South Korea’s prime minister says he’s left the door open to revising a U.S. beef import deal. Many believe that Seoul agreed to the pact to please Washington… despite safety concerns. We now go to
Seoul for more.

Next Thursday South Korea resumes quarantine inspections on all cuts of U.S. beef from animals of any age. No U.S. beef has been imported here since 2003 following an outbreak of mad cow disease.

South Korea’s government says they will be watching the imports carefully.

[Han Seung-soo, South Korean Prime Minister]:
“We will suspend the beef imports (from the U.S.) if our people’s health is in danger with an outbreak of mad cow disease in America.”

Last month South Korea agreed to open its market to American beef.

South Koreans have taken to the streets in protest. They’ve been listening to the quickly spreading rumors that products such as diapers and cosmetics may pose a risk for mad cow disease because beef products are used in their production.

The government says U.S. beef is safe. To help prove their claims they brought in scientists to knock down some of the claims.

South Korea used to be the third-largest import market for U.S. beef.

Cumbrae’s Great Alternative Grilling Steaks, Part 3

GREAT ALTERNATIVE GRILLING STEAKS

In this video, Cumbrae’s owner Stephen Alexander gives you the insight into the relatively unexplored world of alternative grilling steaks. We explore the part of the animal the cuts come from, how to best prepare them and how to ask for and select the best one for your individual palate.

These alternative grilling steaks are important to Cumbrae’s nose-to-tail eating philosophy and sustainable farming practices. Not to mention, they are also great value at half the price of premium cuts and are a great way to serve steak at a big summer BBQ. Enjoy!

The Cumbrae’s tradition of farm-to-fork quality started over a decade ago when third-generation butcher Stephen Alexander first brought Cumbrae Farms’ naturally raised meats to Toronto’s food connoisseurs.

Cumbrae’s has become Toronto’s meeting place for people who love to buy, prepare and eat great food. For leading chefs, ardent connoisseurs and families who value quality, Cumbrae’s enthusiastic staff set the standard for personal service, great cooking advice and true enjoyment of food.

What temperature should I cook my beef at????

Hello,

I’ve just bought a 1.5kg prime rib of beef on the bone which I want to cook very slowly to keep it tender. If anyone has seen the programme with Heston Blumenthal, I’ll be using a blowtorch to brown the outside like he did, but haven’t got 24 hours spare to cook it at 50 degrees!!

I’d prefer it to be medium to medium well, and I want to cook it for 7 hours. Any ideas on what temperature I should cook it at in a fan assisted oven??

Any ideas would be gratefully recieved!

Thanks.

Your roast isnt all that big, so to cook it for 7 hours like you want to, you can probably go with about 200F or 90C. Pull it out when it gets to 60C and let it rest for about 20 minutes before carving. I dont know if it will take 7 hours, but it will take some time at that temperature.
