I'd love to see this community get active again. Inspired by the post last week, I decided I should do something worth posting, too!

On Friday, my husband and I made some spicy garlic beef with green beans. Actually, it mostly ended up just tasting spicy, the chili powder was kind of overpowering. But every so often you got a lime juice or garlic kick :)

Here it is, cooking on the stove:
Spicy garlic beef with green beans

And here is the final product, served over cilantro rice.
Spicy garlic beef and green beans

olive oil
1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
4 cloves garlic, chopped (we used more like 6, we really like garlic!)
1 jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced

1 1/2 pounds beef (we used eye of the round steak, but there are probably better choices)
1 teaspoon chili powder
kosher salt and black pepper

1/4 cup lime juice

1 cup long-grain white rice
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1. Cook rice according to directions. When it is done, fluff it and fold in the cilantro and butter to taste.

2. Mix chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cover the steak in it. Sear the steak (there are many ways to do this, we used very hot olive oil and dropped the steak in for a few moments on each side. This causes a LOT of chili-infused smoke which causes our eyes and nose to water... but it worked fine!). When it is done, cut it into strips.

3. Heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add green beans, garlic, jalapenos, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook until beans are tender, stirring a lot, about 3-5 minutes. Add the steak to the skillet and cook another 3-5 minutes.

4. Stir in the lime juice and remove from heat. Serve over rice, making sure to get lots of the juice from the pan!

We also made our own pizza, too! No recipe here - we use a dough recipe from Martha Stewart but you can use whatever dough you want, or buy one from the store. We use Prego Traditional sauce, a bag of "pizza cheese" (that's what it says on the bag, yellow and white) and whatever toppings we want. This one has garlic, spinach and artichokes, cooked for a few minutes in the juice from the artichoke jar before putting on the pizza for baking. Finally, I added some sliced tomatoes and little dabs of goat cheese before baking. Yum!
