The perfect summer dish that you can throw on the stove or in your slow cooker overnight before bed, or early morning and go about your day would be barbacoa. barbacoa is slow roasted for about eight to nine hours on low- then forked into pieces (will literally fall apart with little to no effort) into a burrito, a burrito bowl or street tacos (my personal favorite). i've used barbacoa in my meal prep regime because it can be prepared so many different ways.
I've decided to publish my personal recipe with a twist, that will make you want to cook this dish at least three times a month.
1 chuck roast beef ( the bigger the better, the more marble fat the more tender and flavorful)
2 teaspoon vegetable oil or canola oil
1 can of chile in adobo sauce (about 4 chiles and 2 teaspoons of the sauce from can)
1/2 habanero pepper (chopped)
2 teaspoons of chicken flavor
4 1/2 cups of chicken broth or beef broth
4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
4 teaspoons cumin
3 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoon hımılayan salt
3 teaspoon black pepper
juice from 4 limes
1. chop your chuck roast into sections... eight sections. doesn't have to be super small its just for easy transfer.
2. heat skillet to medium-high heat with canola oil in the pan. once heated sear each piece of beef for 3 minutes on each side
3. while you're searing your meat, you're going to take your remaining ingredients and add them to a food processor or a blender. blend well and transfer to your pot (turn on low (temp- 2) or your slow cooker (turn on low).
4. after you sear your meat, transfer to the pot and let cook for 8 hours. check on the seasonings as the time goes by. over time i usually add some more garlic salt, pepper or garlic powder for taste.
5. when all done, piece apart with fork and serve.
street tacos: corn tortilla, salsa, barbacoa and lime.
burrito bowl: rice, corn, black beans or pinto beans, barbacoa, gaur, sour cream salsa and lettuce
burrito: large flour tortilla, rice, corn, black beans or pinto beans, barbacoa, gaur, sour cream salsa and lettuce.
Every closet needs the basics. Basics in my eyes are the key elements in your closet that build the foundation for any outfit. It's the medium that allows you to dress up or dress down. It's what the rest of your shopping is built around centering these essential items. Lets go over the basics and how to make the most out of the more simple things in your closet. Don't forget to watch my YouTube video on this coming soon.. subscribe to my channel here,
The White Tee
The white tee is a must when revamping your closet. Why? Because the white tee is flexible. The white tee can tone down a very eye catching piece such as some very flashy pants, skirt or a very flashy shoe. The white tee is not the center of attention- it enhances and adds to the center of attention without taking away from that stellar piece. Below are some awesome ways to pair your white tee with your statement pieces.
The Strap Sandal
the strap sandal is also another must. Why? because it adds sexy and chic in the form of the most blissful simplicity. it makes your legs look more defined and longer, with adding a gorgeous arch to your heel.
this can be worn with oversized tee's or an oversized blazer to bring out to compliment your legs. as seen in this looks below worn by rihanna:
another fabulous look.
a huge essential within your closet that can be worn dressy casual or "running errands in style" casual would be a pair or two of your favorited distressed denim. Essentially, they seek for themselves without you have to do or say much. this is a basic that can be the centerpiece of your outfit, and everything else really works around it to add to it- then to take away from it. (shop my denim pieces here: designsbyuni.com , to find your favorite denim piece).
Now you have the basics...
now that you have the basics down, you can always build around it with whatever else you have in your closet. these three basics have endless outfit possibilities. which I will go more in depth about in my newest youtube video coming very soon! hope you enjoyed this blog- do comment, share and subscribe.
