I have been in the dog house with my wife for the last two weeks.
I said a few stupid things and then when she found out that I was going to be in Austin, Texas for Mother’s Day, I lost a lot of points and was sent to the dog house.
I know one way that I can score points and slowly work my way out of the dog house is to have dinner ready for her when she comes home from work.
I needed some ideas on what to cook; thankfully, yesterday the next edition of Metabolic Cooking came out.
When I was in Tampa Bay in January I got to meet the creators, Dave and Karine, of the book (sorry, no photos, I forgot to take one). I got a chance to meet them and chat about their book.
I dug into their cookbook and found this:
“Ginger Beef” – Compliments of Metabolic Cooking 2.0
Makes 2 Servings
- 2 sirloin steaks (4oz each), cut in strips
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 2 diced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper
- Place the oil in a large skillet and brown the steaks in it over medium-high heat.
- When both sides are well-seared, add the onion, garlic, and tomatoes.
- In a bowl, stir the ginger, salt and pepper into the vinegar and
- add that mixture to the skillet, stirring to combine.
- Cover the skillet, turn the heat to low, and let the whole thing simmer until liquids
- evaporates completely.

I had all of the above in my fridge so I cooked it up.
It took 10 minutes and I switched the beef for chicken. Here it is:
The meal was Grrrreat!
I had some left over for today’s lunch.

That is it,
P.S. – What did my wife think? She loved it and I scored some points. It was so good that I get to cook dinner again tonight but I know Dave and Karine will have a great recipe that I can cook up.
