Grilled London Broil Steak Tacos / #SundaySupper

Today I have some Grilled London Broil Steak Tacos on the menu! We are celebrating the grilling season this week on Sunday Supper by Throwing something on the Barbie! When it comes to grilling, everyone has an opinion! It is an entire culture all on its own! You can have a favorite way to grill: gas or wood. How about a favorite method: direct, indirect, smoking and rotisserie. To make it even more interesting, each of those categories have categories!
These Grilled London Broil Steak Tacos come together quickly, but you will want to tenderize the London Broil the day before you want to serve these yummy tacos to get optimum flavor! The steak and the peppers cook at the same time, and as the steak comes off to rest, the tortillas go on, and the peppers and tortillas come off together. Get ready for a great meal! 

 
 Grilled London Broil Steak Tacos
London Broil Steak
Italian Dressing (not creamy)
A1 Sauce 
Garlic Powder
Red, yellow, and Orange Peppers, thinly sliced
Vidalia Onion, thinly sliced
Flour Tacos
Lettuce
Ranchero Queso Fresco
Sour Cream 
Salsa 

Tenderize the steak by sprinkling garlic powder on top, and pouring A-1 and Italian dressing on top of the garlic powder.
Use 2 forks and push them in and out of the steak, moving all over the steak. Then flip it over and do it again. When you begin, the fork will be slightly resistant to piercing the steak, but as you continue, it will become easier and easier. Cover the steak and refrigerate it overnight.
Sprinkle chipotle seasoning on the steak and place on the grill on medium heat.
Sear the meat one way, for two minutes, then lift and score it in the other direction for two minutes.
Flip the steak over and do it again. 
Place the veggies in a packet of foil and place on the grill. Close foil for quicker cooking. I put these on the grill as the steak was 4 minutes away from being done. The peppers will be cooked, but still have a crunch. If you like them softer, put them on the grill earlier.
 
Take off the steak and let it rest for a few minutes. Place tortillas on the grill. They start to bubble up quickly. Remove when they do.
 Thinly slice the london broil.
 Build the taco by adding lettuce, cheese, steak, peppers and onions, sour cream and salsa.


Enjoy your tacos!

Seared Scallops with Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble / #SundaySupper

Today we are all about Spanish Tapas with these Seared Scallops with Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble! If you haven't experienced tapas, you will want to give it a try! Tapas is a plate of fun, tasty and pretty small bites, all rolled into one. A real feast for your senses, tapas can be hot or cold, and is usually served with wine, beer or sherry. Many times it is enjoyed by creating several different dishes and making them a meal. A great way to do tapas is to make some "do ahead" recipes, like roasted almonds and vegetable dip, and then add in an entree type dish or two, like these seared scallops, and a small bite meat dish. Check out the recipes at the end of this post to find a variety of yummy tapas plates to try!

Seared Scallops w/ Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble
(printed recipe)

3 tablespoons Olive Oil
3 tablespoons Orange Juice
1 tablespoons Honey
1 tablespoon Fresh Dill
4 ounces Manchego, shredded  
1 pound Fresh Scallops
1-2 tablespoons Butter
Lettuce
4 ounces Bleu Cheese, crumbles



Whisk together the Olive Oil, Orange Juice and Honey. Refrigerate.
Chop up the dill and lettuce. Shred the Manchego Cheese.
Rinse the scallops. Heat butter in a pan on medium high heat. As scallops and the butter start to brown, turn them over to cook on the other side. 
Once the scallops are done cooking, place the shredded lettuce on the plate or tray, and top with the scallops. Sprinkle with the manchego cheese, bleu cheese and dill. Drizzle with orange vinaigrette. 


Enjoy your tapas and the tapas experience!

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Homemade Noodles / #UltimateRecipeChallenge


If you are a pasta lover, you will love this Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Homemade Noodles! It is one of my favorites, one I have been making for many years, and it makes a regular appearance at my son's birthday dinner every year! This time however, I tried something I have been wanting to do for quite some time~I made my own noodles! What fun it is, and so incredibly tasty! I never knew fresh noodles were so awesome! If you give them a try, I know you will never go back to the boxed noodles!
My recipe is part of a fun and creative group called the Ultimate Recipe Challenge. At the end of this post, stick around and check out all the wonderful recipes members of the group creative. They look gorgeous! I am glad you are here and I hope you enjoy this recipe!  

 Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Homemade Noodles
(printable recipe)
Serves 2
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup Semolina Flour
Pinch Salt
3 large Eggs
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Butter
1 large Chicken Breast
1 tablespoon Butter
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
sprinkle of Garlic Powder
sprinkle of Parsley




Sift both flours, and salt in to a pile in the center of a table. Make a well, and place the eggs and olive oil inside. 
Begin to mix together with a fork. The dough will soon become stiff as you knead it.

 Knead for 12 minutes, then wrap in plastic for 30 minutes. 
Take a small piece of the dough and run it though the pasta maker to flatten it.
Run flat piece through the fettuccine side of the pasta maker. Set aside for a moment.
In a small skillet, melt the butter and cook large chicken breast. Filet chicken breast after cooking. In a medium skillet, on medium heat, melt butter and add heavy whipping cream and lemon juice. Turn sauce to medium high heat and bring to a boil.
Add cheese. While it is boiling, stir constantly. Add garlic as you are stirring. Stir until sauce thickens, then remove from heat.
Plate your dish with the pasta, then some sauce, sliced chicken, and a few sprinkles of sauce on top. Add a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
