This is actually the first meal I made with the Chipotle Morita Chili paste that I got from our friend Jeff ( jcam222 jcam222 ). The skirt steak roll-up that I recently posted was done so at the recommendation of a friend here so it got posted first. Being that this particular dinner came out amazingly well, I think it needs to be shown because some folks might like the concept. Another pool and margarita inspiration, which is where/when most of my inspirations come from :emoji_wink:

Started with a pound of CPB Tenderloin Tips.

Once again, here is the chili paste

Now to get the sauce going for the marinade. Used beef broth, Better Than Bouillon beef base, the Chipotle Morita Chili paste, minced onion, garlic powder, and a nice shot of Pasilla powder

The tenderloin tips are in large chunks. Typically I cut them into smaller pieces but wanted the effect of "steak" as best I could so left them in big chunks

Let the sauce cool and put the meat in to marinate

They got to soak for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally, and then onto the griddle

All done

Top with some cotija cheese and cilantro. Plated with a chilled Mexican street corn salad and some Spanish rice

These were just outstanding. We got the deep beefiness of the CPB meat, the succulent texture of the tenderloin, and a flavor from the sauce that is beyond anything I can begin to describe, truly delicious. Tracy said the best Mexican themed meal ever and in the top 5 of all meals. I'd be pretty much inclined to agree with her. We were both bowled over with the complexity of the flavors that the sauce brought to the table. These are at the top of the ever growing "to-do-again" list.

Well gotta run. Neighbor needs some help unloading a huge box out of his truck and asked for me to come over with the tractor. Y'all have fun, stay safe, and eat well. See ya on the next one.

Robert, your cooks are inspirational. Thank you so much for taking the time and sharing.
 
Looks amazing Robert! Glad you are loving the paste. It’s phenomenal for sure. I’ll be cloning these beef tips soon thanks to that mysterious package contains some showed up haha.
 
Real good looking beef! I imagine , cut in bite-sized chunks, leftovers would make some great Tortas on Bolillo with Onion and Cilantro...JJ
 
Darn good looking plate!

Thank you Jim. Doesn't look nearly as good as it tasted though.

Woo! That is some mighty fine food Robert! Those tips look awesome.

Appreciate it Steve. They came out far better than I'd hoped.

Actually David I outgrew the rubber ducky long ago. I've advanced to those cute little inflatable orange things that go around your upper arm. That leaves the lower arm free to get the margarita cup to my face :emoji_laughing:

Yum! Where's my plate?

Still sitting out on the patio table waiting for you. We thought you were on the way :emoji_wink:
