Today’s dinner is comprised of short rib steaks, parmesan white steamed rice, tomatoes & okra and steamed broccoli. I am still trying to cook a leaner meal so there is going to be limited used of butter and when I do use butter it’s the light version. Remember, I am Hispanic and everything I cook is going to have a Mexican cuisine twist. This goes back to my roots. I also like to be able to complete the Sunday dinner within a couple of hours. The itemize list of ingredients are noted below. My picture is based off of small portions. I don’t want to screw up my summer/fall diet program.

Ingredients – Short Rib Steak (beef)
3 - 5 Short rib steaks
1 Large lime squeezed over the meat.
2 Table Spoons of Webber’s Zesty Lemon Pepper
2 - 4 Table Spoons of Worcestershire Sauce

Ingredients – White Steamed Rice w/Parmesan Cheese
2 Packages of Success Boil-In-Bag White Rice.
1 Table Spoon “I cannot believe it’s Butter” Mediterranean blend
1/2 Cup fresh shredded - parmesan cheese
1/4 Teaspoon of coarsely ground black pepper

Ingredients – Okra
2 Packages of fresh Okra
1/2 Red onion, thin slices and then chopped
1 Fresh seedless Jalapeno finely chopped
2 Fresh garlic cloves finely chopped
1 Bunch of cilantro finely chopped
1 Can of regular Rotel tomatoes with lemon juice
1/4 Teaspoon of coarsely ground black pepper
1 Table Spoon of chicken broth

Cooking Directions:

Ribs
On a flat cooking pan that has about ½ inch lip, which I line with foil and then place each piece of meat side by side. Squeezing the fresh lime juice over the meat as evenly as possible and adding the Worcestershire Sauce and Zesty Lemon pepper. Place in the broiler for about 15 minute on each side.
White Rice
In large pot filled with two cups of water for every bag that you intend on cooking, let the water come to a boil and then add the rice bags. The rice should cook for about 8-10 minutes and once it is cooked drain off all the water. In the same pot place the cooked white rice adding the parmesan cheese, pepper and butter and about ¼ cup of water and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.

Okra
I always use my heavy skillet and brown the okra which has been cut in1/4 inch slices. I also use olive oil about three table spoons and adding the chopped jalapeno, garlic and red onion to brown as well. Once all the ingredients have been browned, drain any leftover oil and then add the can of Rotel, along with a couple of can of waters and the bouillon, cilantro and pepper. Let this first come to a boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes.

Broccoli
I just steam it for about 5 minutes. You don’t want to overcook vegetables.
