cornmeal pancake
This is a very simple, yet delicious meal which would work great as a main dish, or as an appetizer if you make smaller bites. Either cook up a steak for this occasion, or used some marinated meat leftover from yesterday. Cornmeal pancakes are so easy and quick to make, they are nice for breakfast, lunch or dinner – any meal of the day in fact. When you top them with a nice piece of steak along with salsa and sour cream you really get a great meal, however in a pinch just salsa and sour cream works too!

Make a batch of cornmeal pancakes.

Grill a piece of meat (strip steak, flank steak, tenderloin etc..), make sure to not overcook it, you want some pink in the middle! Let it rest, then slice very thinly.

Assemble the meal with a pancake, some slices of steak, a generous serving of avocado and salsa as well as some sour cream.

This recipe is of course very easy to vary depending on what you have on hand. Pulled pork as well as cooked chicken in barbeque sauce also happen to be winners here, as do sauteed shrimp or smoked salmon. It's nice with something creamy such as avocado and sour cream to go along with this as well as something acidic like salsa, but feel free to experiment!
