    Cohen Day 1 – 07.11.11

    The race is on. Well, it’s technically not a race because I am only competing with myself. But I feel like I am racing against time towards reaching my target weight in less than 6 months.

    Angus Ribeye Steak Au Poivre w/ Balsamic Reduction

And the easiest I could think of last Saturday was soft tacos. I call this dish Filipino-style Soft Beef Tacos. It’s not authentically Mexican (sorry Mexican food fans) but the elements are there. It’s Filipino-style because it’s less spicy and a little sweet. Also, if you will notice, I did not include any greens. I had too much salads and cucumbers last week, I just wanted to eat meat. Ground beef galore.…
