Today was one of those days I didn’t know what to make or more importantly I didn’t even know what I wanted. Its one of those days where I could be persuaded to eat anything and everything sounds good. On these type of days I feel more receiving for a culinary sign. Something or anything to guide what the heck to put on the table tonight. Today the only thing I knew was its something with flat iron steak but that’s about it. I didn’t know what region Id land it with this or style. All I did know was no fajitas. So under the guidelines of flat iron steak and no fajita recipes this garlic beef was born and ill take this as a win.
