Beyond Beef: Part 1

When most people think about beef, breakfast might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Steak, hamburger, or casseroles are often what people think of when they hear beef. Dinner or lunch is the typical time most people eat beef as well. A good way to jumpstart your morning is with protein. I’m a big fan of breakfast burritos. I highly recommend this recipe for Breakfast Beef Burritos.

Total Recipe Time: 15 to 25 minutes
Makes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • Beef is very versatile!

    Beef is very versatile!

    8 ounces beef Sirloin Tip Center Steaks, cut 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend or jalapeño pepper cheese
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Salt
  • 2 medium flour tortillas (10-inch diameter), warmed
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa
  • Toppings: Sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro, additional prepared salsa (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine eggs, cheese and water in small bowl. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add egg mixture; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until scrambled and just set. Set aside; keep warm.
  • Season beef Steaks with pepper. Carefully wipe out skillet with paper towels, if necessary. Spray with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1/2 of beef; cook 1/8-inch thick steaks 1 to 2 minutes (1/4-inch thick steaks 3 to 4 minutes) or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Do not overcook. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining beef. Season beef with salt, as desired.
  • Layer 1/2 of beef on each tortilla, leaving 1-1/2-inch border on right and left sides; top with 2 tablespoons salsa and 1/2 of eggs. Fold right and left sides of tortilla over filling. Fold bottom edge up over filling and roll up tightly. Serve with toppings, if desired.

When I make this recipe, I substitute a sharp cheddar cheese instead of the jalapeño pepper cheese. I am not a big fan of spicy food, so this appeals more to my tastes. I also like topping it with avocados. That is a great way to add some more flavor and color to this breakfast.
