Where oh where do I come up with these recipe ideas, I wish I could tell you!

Why oh why do I decide to come up with these recipe ideas at 10:30 PM? I also wish I could tell you that!  Basically the worst time ever to be thinking about delicious food. Now it’s late, I’m in bed and I’m SO hungry!

I guess that’s just one of the very few downsides that come with being a professional food blogger!

Sriracha Steak Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

This recipe idea started when I was thinking up new recipe ideas for Fathers Day, as well as new ideas for skewer recipes.

Steak Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Skewers

If you like meat, cheese and sriracha, this is basically going to be your new favorite recipe!

My thought process went something like this:

  • “What if I wrapped a jalapeño popper in steak instead of bacon?”
  • “But wait, I love bacon.”
  • “What if I put the bacon in the jalapeño popper, then wrapped it in steak.”
  • “Ok, I like where this is going. Tell me more.”
  • “Now, what if we added sriracha?”
  • “Yes, I like, I like.”
  • “We could marinate the steak in the Sriracha.”
  • “Yes, yes, go on.”
  • “Then we could also put sriracha in the jalapeño poppers.”
  • “Yes, yes, yes!”
  • “Then we’ll put the entire thing on a skewer and grill it.”
  • “What just happened here? Mind. Blown!”

I’ve always wondered what would happen if someone lived in my mind for a day. Well this gives you a little glimpse into the conversations that go on in there, lol!

Sriracha Steak Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp sriracha (divided)

  • 2 lbs skirt steak
  • 8 oz cream cheese

Sriracha Steak Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers Instructions

Sriracha Steak Marinade

Add the steak to the marinade.

Sriracha Marinated Skirt Steak

Note: The steak you see pictured above is cube steak. I tried that first and it didn’t really work for this recipe, so I ended up making it into Sriracha Steak Tacos. I then switched to skirt steak, which worked much better for this recipe!  Just wanted to note that here in case anyone was looking at the steak, thinking, that doesn’t look like skirt steak!

Place the marinating steak in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

While the steak marinates, combine the cream cheese, 1 tbsp sriracha, pepper jack cheese and crumbled bacon together in a small bowl.
