Students in Mrs. Budler's Foods and Nutrition class are in the middle of the protein and meats unit. After studying marinades and rubs, students thinly cut a tough cut of meat and made a marinade to put it in overnight. The next day they cut up green onions and a green pepper and sauteed it in a pan. To that pan they added their marinated meat. In the meantime, they also made homemade tortillas to serve their meat and pepper mixture on and created a homemade fajita.
Students enjoyed this foods lab and learned that a cheaper cut of meat can be made into a very nice meal with a little extra time and effort. One student in the class commented that this is the best lab we have had all year!
