Fajita Steak Salad and Italian Club Burger

Fajita Steak Salad and Italian Club Burger

Italian Club Burger AND a Fajita Steak Salad. This is one EPIC post with so much deliciousness that I don’t even really know where to start. This is my first time doing a Friday bonus recipe but I really couldn’t wait to share both of these recipes. Now which recipe do I talk about first?!

Both of these recipes were created with my Butcher Box order I talked about in my Bacon, Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Waffle Slider post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you would know I am a Mexican food addict and burgers are basically my love language.

This fajita salad is a lighter version of fajitas without all of the tortillas. It is topped with sautéed peppers and onions, tomato, cilantro and a delicious avocado dressing. It really is the perfect way to use some of flat iron steak that I received in our box.

This Italian Club Burger may be the best burger I have had in a while. Back when wheat didn’t hate me, my husband and I used to make Panini’s a lot. A lot of times we would make these roasted balsamic peppers and layer turkey, salami, pepperoni, cheese and a whole lot of other goodness. Gosh! Now my mouth is watering. Anyway, this burger was inspired from our Panini days. It is a grilled burger topped with goat cheddar, balsamic peppers, lettuce, onion, tomato and avocado. We don’t eat a lot of gluten free bread in our home but sometimes a burger is so epic that you need it. However, you can easily eat open faced without the bun and it would be just as delicious.

I am really excited about all my recipes this week because they focus on all the delicious meat I received from a grass-fed meat company called Butcher Box. This company was created because Mike, the owner, realized that a lot of people wanted to buy grass-fed and quality meats but were have trouble gaining access to them. Thus the concept of Butcher Box was born. It allows people to have greater access to healthier meat.

Butcher box is grass-fed meat company that delivers straight to your door each month. You can customize your box each month and choose between a mixture of chicken, pork and grass-fed beef. You can go even further by customizing your box with add-ons like burgers and rib-eye steaks. Really the options are endless. Each box is $129 and contains 6-10lbs of meat. That equals about 15-20 individual portions. You can have it delivered every month or schedule it every 2-3 months.

I personally went for the all beef box and one pack of sugar-free bacon. I wanted to be able to take advantage of good quality grass-fed beef. So far we have enjoyed many delicious burgers, grilled steaks and those wonderful bacon sliders.
