Choose a lean beef by looking for the word “loin” or “round” in the name of the cut – such as this week’s Stockman & Dakota USDA Choice Top Sirloin! Making your own marinade is a flavorful way to cut the salt in this classic fajita recipe. Try it with your favorite fish, too! Seafood twice a week for health benefits is easy when you have a delicious recipe to start with, and planning ahead makes great use of all the ingredients purchased and on hand for busy weeknight meals that come together deliciously and quickly.
