Creole beef with cauliflower

A nice spicy-punched beef and cauliflower dish! The most important part of this recipe is the famous Trinity, or the use of onions, celery, and either carrots or bell peppers. This is the backbone of many creole and Cajun recipes. Also, paprika is another important ingredient as it gives a nice smoky flavor to the whole dish. And as always the apple cider vinegar in this recipe could easily be substituted with wine as well.

I almost always marinade most of my meats in a little bit of soy sauce. Mostly  because, I prep my ingredients the day before and have no idea what I’m going to cook and thus assume its going to be some sort of stir fry, but nevertheless it also adds a nice flavor to the meat. You can always skip this and just add in salt to marinade if you prefer.
