DH doesn't need the extra salt. What's in the ham is usually enough. DH doesn't like pepper so I just sprinkle it on mine when I serve it up.
This reminded me that a friend of mine told me that Michael (Chef at Home) puts dried legumes in canning jars of water and stores them in the fridge to reduce soaking and cooking time. I don't have the details re: how to do that...anyone? I always get the craving for chili and don't have any beans soaked...

Sometimes it is just called something different depending on where you live. It is also called London Broil or Jiffy Steak. I've never heard it called Jiffy Steak, but I just read that.

I think it came out good. It was certainly tasty, but I think I would have preferred it on my plate naked rather than in a fajita. Usually I just reseason and warm leftover steak for fajitas. Of course I had to taste test it while slicing, and then again before putting the leftover slices in the fridge
Along with the grilled veggies.

Thank you for the concern. I got the shakes again while cooking and drank some grapefruit juice.

Homemade fried rice (jasmine rice, carrots, onions, soy sauce - fried in peanut oil, pre-cooked scrambled egg added and then garnished with sliced green onions & sesame seeds).



Beef and Broccoli stir fry (flank steak sliced thin, grated fresh garlic & fresh ginger, onion, broccoli sautéed in a combo of peanut, chili & grapeseed oils, oyster sauce, soy sauce, ground peppercorns, beef bouillon (only because I didn’t have beef broth/stock), water & cornstarch) and homemade fried rice.

We had shrimp and lobster ravioli in garlic butter sauce over chopped spinach. Chocolate cake for dessert.
