Well, I don’t know if you guys remember this or not, but a while back we made Sweet Potato Tostadas with Chicken. It was a big hit around this house, as I hope it was around yours. We decided that we would revisit this recipe, make any necessary tweaks, and replace the chicken with steak. Tostadas are so much fun. They make the idea of eating a taco that much more exciting. Like tacos, the sky is the limit on what you can top a tostada. Since Fall is right around the corner, I decided that I would make this a Fall inspired dish. The sweet potatoes just scream “Thanksgiving,” and steak is just one of those staple ingredients of cool, autumn temperatures. This dish is extremely comforting and great for entertaining. They can be eaten in 2, 3 or 4 bites and are great as an appetizer or as a main course! Give this recipe a try for your next get together, whether you use steak OR chicken. You will be more than happy you went this route when you aren’t spending the entire party in the kitchen!
I know I have paired with The Bruery’s Autumn Maple before, but it only seemed appropriate that I pair this dish with this beer. Autumn Maple season is upon us, and we are super excited about it around here (as we always are when The Bruery releases something spectacular). Luckily, we have quite a few bottles of Autumn Maple laying around from previous years. We like to hold on to the greats for safe keeping if you were wondering =). So Autumn Maple is brewed with yams, so this should come as no surprise to you when we paired it with this dish. What makes this beer so fun is that it’s kind of like a pumpkin beer that hasn’t been brewed with pumpkin! You still get pumpkin notes from the many spices they brew it with. If you haven’t yet tried this beer, please do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle when it is released (which should be soon). Oh, and pair it with this dish! This should just go without saying =).
Have a great day everyone!
