Skirt steak is anything but typical basted with oil and MINOR'S® Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate. Grilled to medium-rare perfection, sliced and served atop Spanish rice with a side of mixed roasted vegetables tossed with fire-roasted poblano, olive oil and sea salt.

Ingredients

24 oz Beef loin, Skirt Steak
3 oz Olive oil
1.25 oz Minor's® Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate Gluten Free (6x13.6oz)
2.75 oz Minor's® Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate Gluten Free (6x13.6oz)
1 oz Olive oil
16 oz California blend vegetables, frozen

Steps

  1. Mix together the olive oil and Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate. Rub on steak. Set aside for at least 30 minutes up to 24 hours.
  2. Combine Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate and olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Toss the vegetable blend in the poblano oil and mix until the vegetables are evenly coated.
  3. Roast vegetables in a convection oven at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until hot and slightly caramelized.
  4. Place steak on a preheated grill and cook over high heat to medium rare. Let rest.

vote buttons pins

On every other Thursday of our four-week cycle menu, we allow K-8 students to pick the entree choices. The media center specialist for each of the participating schools sets up the list of entree items on a computer for voting, and the winning entrees are given to cafeteria managers two weeks before the upcoming month to put into production. Students really like this, as it promotes ownership of the menu.

If I do end up using it, I will display the resident’s name and what the produce was next to the dish on the menu.

Curriculum for the mobile teaching kitchen centers around a single kid-friendly recipe, using ingredients that can provide talking points for nutrition, sustainability and food origins. “The recipe is the lesson,” Saidel says. “Every ingredient is an opportunity to talk.”

Earlier this year, Saidel, Perkins and Harvey did a student demo featuring roasted chicken and white bean tacos with greens and citrus salsa. “We can say, ‘Why are we using chicken instead of beef?
