Food: Dinner Tonight- Thai Steak Sandwich

I love steak sandwich and will actually search for the option on any menu while dining out. But tonight, I wanted to do something different with the skirt steak that’s been thawing out in my refrigerator. Now as I have mentioned many times, I Keto my way through life now, with the option to have one cheat day here and there. Meaning to say, that this recipe is too good for me to leave out anything, so if you are curious then see below how it is I am cheating:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (cheat)
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari   (cheat) 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon chili paste
  • 1 toasted baguette, halved and cut into 4-6 pieces (cheat)
  • gingered tahini or mayo, for spreading (optional)

MANGO BASIL SALAD

  • 1/3 cup sesame oil
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 mango, sliced or chopped (cheat)
  • 2 carrots, shredded (cheat)
  • 2 persian cucumbers, sliced
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped  (cheat)  

**If you want to maintain the Keto alternative – remove all the items categorized as cheat, and instead of baguette, create a cheesy taco shell instead
