Well, as of today it’s officially official – we’ve moved to Los Angeles.
My husband got a job working for an accounting firm downtown and we are so excited to start this new chapter of our lives.
One thing I will greatly miss about Utah is the Cafe Rio that was literally 3 minutes down the street from where we lived.
I probably frequented there one too many times, but I just love their food.
Now that the closest one is more than 30 minutes away, and riding in the car is becoming a little uncomfortable thanks to the babies, I usually end up trying to make things at home as much as possible.
I love their steak whether it’s in a burrito, enchilada, or on a salad, but it is SO easy to make at home, too. It’s just a few ingredients and it makes for great-tasting meat.
If you have never been to Cafe Rio, or don’t have one near you, I recommend trying this copycat Cafe Rio Steak Recipe. You are not going to be disappointed.
what could i put this steak on?
If you have never been to Cafe Rio, it’s incredibly simple to order. It’s extremely fresh Mexican food, where you select all your fresh toppings. However, they only have a few main courses to choose from. They have:
- Tostada (like a mini salad, with a hard shell on the bottom)
From there, you pick your meat, beans, cilantro rice, sauce, and fresh toppings.
I personally go for the burrito (because they are massive and I get more steak), but all of the options are delicious.
I also love the quesadilla, and this one is a simple one to make at home. All you need is your tortilla, cheese, and steak.
We also love dipping all our Cafe Rio Copycat recipes in their Cilantro Lime Ranch Dressing. I kid you not, this stuff is heaven sent. It’s so yummy.
