Last dinner at home for a minute. We'll be in LA the rest of the week and I'm not sure how frequently I'll be updating. I hope to have a nice recap when we get back, but this may be hanging around at the top of the page for a couple days. I don't know. Maybe I'll sneak one in from LA. TBD.

Anyway, last night we did a quesadilla that came out of a misunderstanding. I thought Meena said she wanted a quesadilla. She actually said fajita. Fajitas would have been better so I sorta wish that had happened. But whatever, these were cool, too.

I started earlier that day by throwing the hanger steak in some marinade. A bit of tomato sauce, some sambal oelek, soy sauce, fish sauce and a bit of water. Nice.

So I grilled that off and finished it in the oven and things came out really lovely. Medium rare in the center and crisp and caramelized on the outside.

I tossed the steak in the dual flour tortillas with:
- brussels sprouts
- white onion
- green onion
- mozzarella
- olive oil
- sea salt
- black pepper

We finished them off with a bit of sour cream and salsa. Oh, and a touch more green onion for color and that raw onion bite.

Lovely. The steak was awesome and packed with flavor. Took our regular quesadilla to a different level. We probably could have done a more elegant hanger steak presentation, but this was totally fine. And delicious to boot.
