I had some leftover Steak Ranchero https://buttoni.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/steak-ranchero-marinated-steak/ in the fridge and came up with this delightful accompaniment to my breakfast eggs today. It was quite good and my husband-who-hates-turnips even ate his fair share! He agreed, it didn’t taste at all like turnips! You can increase the poblano in this without it making this “hot”. Just adjust the carbs if you do.
8 oz. cooked, Southwest seasoned beef (chili, onion powder, garlic powder and cumin), chopped
3 oz. chopped onion
1 3-oz. turnip, peeled and diced
¼ poblano pepper, seeded, roasted and chopped
¼ tsp. bacon grease
DIRECTIONS: Roast pepper in 400º oven or sear well in hot skillet on all sides. Chop when cool. Peel and chop turnip and onion. Heat 3 tsp. bacon grease in non-stick skillet. Saute turnip until nearly tender. Add onion and continue cooking until onion begins to caramelize and turnip is completely done. Add pepper and cook 1 minute or two. Add remaining tsp. of bacon grease and meat and stir until all is heated well and flavors have a chance to blend. Serve as a lunch, with your breakfast eggs or for dinner with veggies or salad.
