BBQ Burritos (Pressure Cooker)

Using a pressure cooker to cook the meat means you get a super, super tender shredded meat which is just perfect for a steak burrito. This is an exceptionally good meal. Serve with some avocado slices, no fat sour cream and salsa for even more flavor.

1 lb. London broil or other lean sirloin steak
6 flour tortillas (80 calorie Smart and Delicious)
1 c shredded low fat cheddar cheese
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 medium avocado, chopped
¾ c barbecue sauce

Marinade – mix together
1 5.5 oz. can spicy V-8 juice
2 T lime juice
1 T oil
½ t salt
¼ t black pepper
½ t ground cumin
½ t chili powder

Pierce beef with a fork several times. Mix marinade and place in a zip loc – add the beef and coat well and then refrigerate 8-24 hours. Pressure cook mat for 1 hours. (you can also crock pot this for 8-10 hours). Let rest 5 minutes and then using 2 forks, shred the meat. Mix in a bit of the left over juices. Preheat oven to 450 degrees (don’t mistakenly set it on BROIL like I did and then burn the holy heck out of your first batch! Thanks for help with the recon mission, Lisa ! LOL) Microwave tortillas 30 seconds or so to warm them slightly. Place beef, cheese, onion, and tomato in each wrap and fold all four sides. Place folded side down in a baking pan sprayed with Pam. Brush with barbecue sauce and bake 4-6 minutes. Serve with a slice of avocado on the top. Optionally add sour cream and salsa for even more flavor.

Grilled Marinated London Broil

If you let this marinate overnight, the meat will be that much more tender and flavorful ! I often plan these for entertaining – they are so easy to do so very savory. They get a nice seared crisp outer layer which tastes just grate with the soy marinade.

1 lb. lean London broil
2 T minced garlic (jarred is fine)
2 T soy sauce
1/2 c water

Place meat in a zip loc. Add remaining ingredients, zip up and mush it all around so all the meat gets covered. Let sit overnight. Heat a grill to high and sear the meat for 3 minutes each side then lower temperature and then cook to desired doneness. If you do not have access to a grill, you can also quick brown this in a large skillet sprayed with Pam and then finish cooking until desired doneness in a hot oven (375 degrees or more).

Slow Cooked London Boil

This is best done in an oval 5 quart crock so the meat fits well. The meat becomes so, so tender, you can cut it with a fork. This is a great meal for busy weekdays – it takes on 10 minutes to prep and then you can be out all day and come home to a great hot meal. To make it a more complete meal, throw in some baby carrots to cook along with the potatoes and onions. Like many crock pot recipes, the potatoes can come out looking a bit rough – but let me tell you, they taste GREAT and they melt in your mouth !

1 green pepper cut in strips
1 yellow pepper cut in strips
1 red pepper cut in strips
1 small onion cut in strips
1 lb. leftover lean grilled London broil, cut into thin strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
4 T soy sauce
1/2 c spicy BBQ sauce

Heat skillet to medium high. Remove from heat and spray with Pam. Return to heat and add onions. Cook until they are getting soft, about 5 minutes. Add up to ¼ c of very hot water if the onions get too dry and the pan needs some moisture. Add peppers and continue cooking 6 minutes. Again, add up to ¼ c very hot water if the peppers need more moisture. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm. Cook meat and garlic for a few minutes and then add the soy, salt, pepper and BBQ sauce. Heat for another minute or 2. Combine meat mix and veggie mix.

If you start with fresh London broil, just broil or grill it to desired doneness and then slice.

This dish is very filling and the first time I made it I had to keep looking back at the calorie count to make sure I did not mess up and include a regular recipe in with my new low cal recipes !
