Cinco Beef-Inspired Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Oh, how I love special days that allow me to focus on food! Beef, in particular.

As you know, I’m kind of obsessed.

So, the fact that Cinco de Mayo is coming up gives me great joy. I can dream up all kinds of beefy delights for that day.

AND, it’s my son’s birthday! We always get to celebrate doubly in spicy style!

The fifth of May, 1862, is when the Mexican army was victorious over the French in the Battle of Puebla and now it’s become a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride.

So in honor of Cinco de Mayo I give you cinco recipes you can use to celebrate, too!

UNO:  Delicious, nutritious steak fajitas (above). I mean, who doesn’t love steak fajitas? This recipe calls for Kansas City strip steaks sliced up good!

DOSCumin marinated flank steak. A special twist to give your flank steak some zing!

TRESCarne asada. A classic.

CUATROFlat iron steak tacos. I love the heartiness of the flat iron beef. Yum!

CINCO:  Flavorful, colorful pico burgers. Try ’em and this may just become your go-to burger from now on. Use Wagyu Kobe beef and you’ll be hooked!

Winning Tailgating Food

Gone are the days of just a bag of ol’ corn chips and a beer before, during and after the big game.

These days, we’re SERIOUS about tailgating. And the tailgating food?

Oh, it’s on!

Tailgating Food

Take this Steak Fajita Chili (shown above), for instance. That’s not a snack. That’s a MEAL!

And rabid fans need fuel to cheer their teams on to victory.

Food Network has put together a slideshow of their Top 50 Tailgating Recipes here.

Know what I like best? Lots of them feature my favorite – beef!!!!

Like Chili in a Biscuit Bowl. And thank heavens for the edible bowl. Less trash!

And Brisket Sandwiches. Can you say YUM?
