Kill 2 Birds with One Stone

We usually eat very little meat but today my husband begged me to cook beef sirloin, so I did. My daughter misses eating chicken and she also asked me to cook some veggies with chicken, so I did too. Kill 2 birds with one stone “right” why not. I chopped enough garlic and unions that I used for these 2 recipes, had some sweet orange peppers and mushrooms, lemons and sesame oil. I also grilled the asparagus as a side dish. I’m lucky that my family is ok eating the same food for 2-3 days, this is why I love cooking in batches – it saves so much time.

 

Let start with Beef and Caramelized Onion
