Teriyaki Beef Quesadillas

I had some leftover steak from Tuesday night, it wasn't enough to feed more than one person so I came up with this. I hate to waste any amount of food.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound left over medium rare steak sliced very thin
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki marinade sauce
  • 8 ounces crushed pineapple drained well
  • 1 medium onion peeled, halved, sliced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup colby jack cheese shredded
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese diced
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 burrito size flour tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 green onion green part only, sliced thin

Directions:

  1. Slice steak very thin into about 2 inch long strips
  2. In a ziplock bag marinate the sliced steak with the marinade sauce in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, saute the onions in 2 tablespoons of butter over low to medium heat until lightly browned and translucent.
  4. Pat dry the pineapple with a paper towel to remove any excess liquid that remained after draining.
  5. Add the bell peppers and pineapple to the onions and saute for an additional 3-4 minutes until peppers start to soften.
  6. In a separate skillet melt the other 2 tablespoons of butter over low to medium heat.
  7. Drain marinade from steak.
  8. Place one tortilla at a time in the butter.
  9. On one half of the tortilla sprinkle some colby jack cheese.
  10. Layer pieces of steak over the cheese.
  11. Spread some of the onion/pineapple medley over the steak.
  12. Add some of the pepper jack cheese over the onion/pineapple mixture.
  13. Top with more colby jack cheese.
  14. Fold over the tortilla to close.
  15. At this point you can begin with another tortilla.
  16. Brown each side of the tortilla, flipping as needed until it gets crisp and the cheeses start to melt.
  17. Transfer to a plate and cut in half and then half again to make 4 wedges.
  18. Top with a dollop of sour cream and garnish with green onions.
