Skirt Steak with Corn Cakes
It’s that time again….another post by none other than the sous-chef (Shaun).  Every now and then its time for a nice hardy meal to counter the healthier side of things.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all kinds of food and have never turned down anything Meagan is willing to cook for me.

Meagan and I first tried this recipe when my brother and his fiance made this for us during a holiday trip to Hereford, TX.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but it turned out great.

Skirt Steak with Corn Cakes

When I hear anything to do with pancakes, I immediately think of breakfast every time.  But this isn’t your ordinary breakfast pancake.  It has a sweet taste from the mix of whole corn and corn meal with a light fluffy texture similar to a regular pancake and we are calling it a corn cake. What would any breakfast meal be without a good portion of pork or beef!  Skirt steak goes great with this dish and makes this meal a nice alternative to a traditional fajita dinner.  Just be sure not to over-cook it or it will get tough.
