Beef with lime and Capers

   
The capers and lime juice add a sharp contrast to the buttery Italian sauce.
Beef with Lime and Capers_Serve with salad

Today’s ingredients are:

   
In a mixing bowl beat the 2 eggs.

   
Season with salt and pepper.

   
Add the shredded beef and mix well until all the meat is cover with the egg mixture. Drain off any excess.

   
In a pan or baking sheet add a cup the flour and season with freshly ground pepper and salt.

   
Now, coat the beef with the seasoned flour.

   

   

   
Heat the olive oil in a large flat pan. Cook the beef for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.


   
I love their free form ;-)

   
Drain on paper towels.

   
Using the same flat pan, add 2 slices of onions and the 2 garlic cloves, let them cook for about 2 minutes.

   
We need about 1/4 cup of drained capers.

   
Add the cappers.

   
And the chicken stock.

   
Then the juice of the two limes and remove the pan from the heat.

   
Whisk in the butter.
Season with salt if needed.

   
Transfer the beef to a serving plate and pour in the sauce. I removed the garlic cloves and onions, just my preference, you could leave them in if you like.

   
Serve with a light salad.

Buon appetito!

  9. Hi Alba! Your website is beautiful! I’ll definitely be trying some of your recipes!
    My green smoothies are always different. Lately, I’ve been doing spinach, banana, greek yogurt, frozen peaches and a little water to get it working in the blender!

  10. P.S. Just out of curiosity, did you buy the beef already shredded like that? Or did you cut it up yourself? What cut of beef is it? This looks so good! Eek! So many questions! :D
