Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the potatoes and bell pepper

  • Scrub the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the smoky spice blend and as many chile flakes as you like and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. 

Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the pepper is crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. While the vegetables are cooking, prepare your protein.

Prep and cook your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the maple glaze and cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, about 30 seconds for regular shrimp; 2 to 3 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 4 to 5 minutes for chicken. While your protein is cooking, prepare the lettuce.

Prep the lettuce

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; separate the leaves.
