This Monday called for all the caffeine possible!
It was Espresso Rubbed Flank Steak and Asian Green Beans for dinner this evening…
Notice the absence of carbs on the plate…
I’m trying REALLY hard.
Turning over a new leaf.
Next time I will for sure make the green chile pesto to go along with the flank steak. I must say I loved the espresso rub ~ not over-powering in the least bit ~ very subtle coffee flavor and an unexpected kick from the chili powder.
The green beans are a WW recipe from a million years ago…
1.5 pounds green beans, trimmed
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
6 cloves garlic, minced
1. In a large pot of rapidly boiling water, cook green beans until just tender, 4-5 minutes.
2. While beans are cooking, in small bowl combine soy sauce, oil and sugar; set aside.
3. Drain beans; set aside.
4. Spray wok or 10″ skillet with nonstick cooking spray, place over med-high heat. Add garlic, cook, stirring constantly, until softened, 20-30 seconds. Add green beans; cook, stirring and turning constantly, until well coated, about 2 minutes.
5. Add soy sauce mixture; continue to stir and turn until most of the liquid is absorbed, 1-2 minutes.

Just a friendly reminder to Tiffany, the winner of the Havaianas…
please, please send me your address by tomorrow evening or I will have to find a new home for the silver flops.
Thanks a million!
Have a great week!
