An Easy, Delicious, and Impressive Dinner – Adobo Beef!

By February 5, 20182 Comments


When I’m in need of a recipe, I call my mother in law! I had friends coming to dinner and I didn’t know what I was going to serve. I told her I am REALLY busy (I have 2 kids👧👧, a husband, and work deadlines), but want to make something that will:

  1. keep my lean and energized (not many carbs)
  2. taste great – good enough that my non health nut guests won’t be spitting their food into napkins when I’m not looking
  3. be something I can do in 15-20min prep time⌚ ‘cause I have several deadlines before my guests arrive and I am starting to panic!

Bless her heart, she delivered like always with this awesome recipe:

Ingredients for Adobo Beef:

  •  3lbs sirloin cubed 🥩🥩🥩
  • 2 cloves minced garlic (yeah, I forgot that in the video my mom told me – it was still good without it)
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • ¾ of small can tomato🍅 paste (no sugar added)
  • 4-5 chipotle peppers chopped (take out seeds if you are sensitive to 🌶spicy🌶, look for these in the “international” isle at your grocery store)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Splenda


Preheat your oven to 300 and cube your 🥩meat.

Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until the onions are soft and the garlic starts to brown.

Add in the 🍅tomato paste and the 🌶peppers. Mix around and then add the water.

Add beef and bring to a simmer on the stove top. Place in oven for about 2 hours after it reaches a simmer.

Check once or twice to make sure it doesn’t dry out (more of a problem with a gas stove, it actually stays too wet with an electric one).

Serve and enjoy! 😋

Ingredients for Cilantro and Lime Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • juice of ½ lime
  • zest of ½ lime
  • handful chopped cilantro


Mix it all up and put it on your food 😋
