Bring your steak-and-muffin game to the next level with this juicy cut and these flaky pastries. You don't have a steak-and-muffin game? This meal will build it for you, and it'll also provide fresh, healthy zucchini and a zesty citrus crema that also will kick your cilantro game a notch up. Basically, you get this meal, and you've got game. Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lime? Before cutting, microwave for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.
