Looking for something simple and easy to make while in coronavirus quarantine? These sirloin nachos bring the heat with a fiery roasted tomatillo salsa. 

 

Ingredients for beef and veggies: 

– 3 Verde Farms grass-fed sirloin steaks, sliced into small pieces

– 1/3 teaspoon chili powder

– 1 teaspoon ground cumin 

– 1 teaspoon garlic powder

– 1 teaspoon onion powder

– Salt and pepper to taste 

– Juice of one lime

– 1/4 cup olive oil 

– One yellow onion, sliced

– One yellow bell pepper, sliced 

– One red bell pepper, sliced 

 

Ingredients for tomatillo salsa: 

– 10 fresh tomatillos 

– 1 serrano pepper

– 2 cloves garlic, smashed

– 1/2 small onion finely chopped

– 1 tablespoon oil

– Salt to taste 

 

For additional toppings:

– Tortilla chips (Siete Brand Chips are a great option for Paleo eaters)

– Shredded cheese of your choice 

 

For serving: 

– Chopped cilantro

– Sliced avocado or guacamole  

– 1 additional lime

 

Directions for Tomatillo Salsa: 

– Preheat the oven to broil.

– Rinse tomatillos under warm water. That will help remove the skins and the stickiness of the tomatillos.

– Cut the tomatillos in half. Place the tomatillos and the serrano pepper on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil.

– Broil for three minutes.

– Add smashed garlic cloves and broil three more minutes until lightly charred. 

– After the sheet pan mixture cools down a bit, remove the pepper stem. 

– Puree the entire contents of the pan, juiced included, in a food processor. 

– Add onion and salt. 

– Place in a glass jar in the refrigerator.

 

Directions for nachos: 

– In a medium bowl, mix all of the seasonings, olive oil, and lime juice with the cut sirloin. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!

– Leave the sirloin to marinate in for a half-hour or more. 

– Sauté the sirloin in a large sauté pan or cast iron pan. Cook for about three minutes on the first side. Turn and cook for about one minute more. 

– In a separate pan, sauté peppers and onions until soft and browned. 

– Place your choice of chips on a sheet pan and preheat the oven to 350.

– Add Verde Farms grass-fed sirloin steaks, peppers, and shredded cheese.

– Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted.

– Serve sirloin nachos in bowls with toppings, including the tomatillo salsa.
