    Couldnt he have made a giant potato pancake the size of the tortilla to go inside? More crunch and less liquid maybe.

    There are no rules to quesadilla, you can put whatever the fuck you want on them and it usually works.

    Very good recipe, Sam! The freshly grilled steak made the meal (I used your recipe for tri-tip steak in the oven on a grate, that meal was amazing when I made it!), and one steak was enough for 4 people, so worth it to get a better quality steak. The potatoes in the quesadilla made it so filling even my 22 year old son "the devourer" only had room for one quesadilla, and I layered on sliced avocado on top of the grilled onions because I didn't have the smoked gouda on hand. And let's not forget those potatoes, which by themselves were delicious. I went heavy on the butter, because I was using Indian yoghurt instead of heavy cream. This was for dinner, so I made a side dish of Mexican Rice Noodles and mixed in Fresh Spinach/Spring Mix, so it seemed like we had a complete meal. Search online for a recipe, or if you like I wrote down how I made it:

    While I love this show and this episode, I believe it is unfair to use fresh steak. You state that people will call you a douche if you used leftover steak but that is what this episode is about. We cook our steaks to perfection like yours in this episode, but the next day they are fucking hard and dry. Simply not worthy of being put in a quesadilla. How can it be revived to it's previous soft, juice state? I simply don't think it can.
