Meat and 3, under 3
I’m fortunate enough to have a Whole Foods across the street from me so I bought a few things and whipped up this meal in about 15 minutes. It isn’t really a recipe it’s just basic staple foods cooked and presented, with some spices and condiments to kick them up a bit. So, below are the components, and below that, the price breakdown.
Skirt steak with curried hominy with cumin, fresh steamed broccoli crown with light butter and pinch of sea salt, all on a toasted tortilla. Dessert is an ultra-fresh green banana, sliced and drizzled with honey, both organic. Beverage is zero calorie lemonade. Approximate cost, $2.58 (and most of it’s organic!)
Skirt Steak - $8/lb - 1/2 lb bought- used 1/4 of that = $1.00
Broccoli crown = $1.20 - used 1/3 = $.40
Hominy - $1.00 - used 1/4 = $.25
Tortilla - $1.00 10-pack - used 1 = $.10
Bananas - $2.40 - used 1/6 = $.40
Lemonade - $2.00 per canister, 12 Qts. Used 1/2 of qt. = $.08
Honey - A teaspon - $.10 ?
Spices, condiments, water- $.25?
Total = $2.58
