Here's something you may or may not know about your man SF: I like to eat. What I enjoy even more is cooking. I like to make all manner of pasta, BBQ until the snow comes, and I even make General Tsao's chicken in my own kitchen. My project right now is perfecting the roux in my momma's (and her momma's) gumbo recipe.
As it's Friday and I'm sure I won't be the only one with my grill up & burning this weekend, I thought I'd get all Gordon Ramsey on you and talk recipes. Not my recipe's though. Some of the players in Kansas City are apparently pretty deft in the kitchen as well as on the pitch. The Wizards Wives Club put the recipes for some of their best creations together on their website, and it's former Wizards Nick Garcia's Carne Asada that wins the Blue Ribbon. Check it:
Nick Garcia'sCarne Asada• Juice of 1/2 lime
• 1 (16 oz.) flat flank steak
• 1 tablespoon Mexican seasoning
• 1 (16 oz.) can ranch-style pinto beans
• 1 cup hot cooked rice
• 2 tortillas
Squeeze lime juice on both sides of steak. Rub Mexican seasoning on both sides. Place steak in zip-top bag and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Heat beans in saucepan. Grill steak to desired doneness. Slice and serve with rice and tortillas on the side. Makes 2 servings.
I'll tell you why this is great recipe. Because it is simple (i.e. drunk proof), portable (i.e. tailgate-appropriate), and delicious (i.e. this sh*t is banging). Personally I like to tweak it a little by adding a bit of lettuce, grilled Spanish onions and some salsa that's as spicy as that Penelope Cruz lesbian make-out music video, but without the creepy 'sisters kissing' thing. Eat up!
