Homemade cheesesteaks

On the evening after my last day of work in 2010, I went over to my friend Alex's house for homemade cheesesteaks (thanks, Alex!).  He first coated the thinly sliced beef in a mixture of lime, cumin, and coriander.  Quite a winning combination, and one that reminded me of the mojito skirt steak at Max's Opera Cafe.

The steak was then cooked, mixed with sauteed onions and grated carrots, spooned onto buttered and toasted buns, and served with some grated cheddar - yum!  We drank sparkling cranberry juice and finished with some chocolate and a marzipan pastry baked by the wife of one of my coworkers/mentors.
