I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

Asian Steak with Spicy Mushrooms

This dish is beyond incredible!  It can be served with flour tortillas or over rice. Either way, you cannot go wrong.  If you do not have chipotle chile peppers, regular chilli powder will work as well.  Adjust the spicyness to your taste.

Asian Steak Ingredients:
2lbs steak skirt (trimmed)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tblsp honey
Juice of 1 small lime
6 cloves of garlic (minced or paste)
1 tsp ginger (paste)
8 flour tortillas (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Spicy Mushroom Ingredients:
1/2lb of sliced mushrooms (shitake or crimini - button will do in a pinch)
1 onion (sliced into rings)
2 tblsp olive oil
1 tsp of garlic (paste or powder)
2 tblsp rice vinegar
1 tblsp sugar
1 tblsp sesame oil
1 tsp of chipotle chili (paste or powder)
2 green onion stalks (chopped)
1 handful cilantro (chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tblsp toasted sesame seeds

For Marinade: mix oil, soy sauce, honey, lime, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper in a bowl until well blended. Place steak in a glass dish or zip lock bag, pour marinade, seal and refrigerate over night.

Grill steaks on medium high heat for 3-4 minutes per side or until medium rare doneness.  If cooking indoors, add a little olive oil to a pan and heat until very hot (oil is smoking) and fry each side for 3-4 minutes per side or until medium rare doneness.  Remove steak and let it rest on a cutting board for approximately 5-8 minutes.  Slice thinly on a diagonal.

For the spicy mushrooms, heat the oil on high. Add mushrooms and saute for 1 minute.  Add the onion rings and continue to cook until mushrooms and onions begin to brown; add the chipotle pepper and garlic.  Continue stirring for approximately 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.  Add green onions, rice vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and cilantro. Mix well.

Place steak on warm tortillas or over jasmine rice.  Top with the spicy mushrooms and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.  Yummmmmmm!
