If you have been following me on Instagram then you know that I am 38 weeks pregnant with twins. (Still can’t quite wrap my head around that some days.) Yep. Today I have reached 38 weeks. And yes I’m 5 foot 3 and no I never thought I’d make it this far with these wiggly little babies inside of me. Not for lack of trying, I really really wanted to make it to 38 weeks. I just know that something like 60 percent of twins are born before 36 weeks so I tried my best to face the reality that they’d most likely be making an early debut -packed my hospital bags at 30 weeks and never looked back.

Yet here we are. 38 weeks. And we meet these children tomorrow. (Want to see pics of these twinzies?? Follow my brand new IG account where I’m sharing snippets of my life behind the blog – including one million pictures of our gender-neutral nursery.)

Okay but there’s a reason I’m sharing this sriracha orange beef with you on this exact day. It’s sort of… symbolic? You know I love me some spicy food. (See here, and here, and here.) But people are scaring me because they say that spicy food upsets babies tummies. People. I NEED spicy food in my life! I have literally been eating extra spicy everything the past few weeks because 1) I love it and 2) what if this is my last-spicy-supper ya know??

The struggle is real.

  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds thin-cut beef (like flank steak, skirt steak, or similar), cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1-2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup orange juice

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet saute beef, bell peppers, and garlic til garlic is fragrant (2-3 minutes).

When I was pregnant with my children, I was told if I wanted to “hurry the labour” along (I was around 39 weeks), the doctors and nurses told me to eat spicy food. Of course as a spicy food aficionado, this practically gave me carte blanche to go crazy on spicy food.

This beef seems like the prefect food for when I am craving spice!

Knock yourself out, from one Tiffany to another! Every baby is different, but you may find their tummies are just fine with spicy food, and unhappy with something completely benign. I ate spicy (and I mean SPICY) the whole time and ours was fine; we even acclimated her to spicy stuff in her baby food (maybe we’re mean, but she liked it!).
I was also a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse in a top-ranked NICU, so I can tell you it won’t hurt them to try a little spicy milk once in a while.
Best of luck through your delivery, and into parenthood! It’s the best EVER!!

    Okay that just gave me hope – I NEED spicy food in my life!!! I ate spicy food the whole time I was pregnant so I keep telling myself that maybe the babies are used to it and it won’t upset their stomachs ha. Thanks Tiffany !

Hey girl This looks good!! but I don’t like things to spicy though! but I’ll be praying for you tomorrow!! Have faith girl and can’t wait to see pics of the little ones!

Tried this recipe last night, and it was DELICIOUS! I love spicy foods and this recipe definitely hits the spot. For a beginner like me, I found this recipe quite easy. It really makes me feel that I can cook anything haha. Thank you for sharing 🙂

Hi Tiffany! I was just wondering if I can freeze the leftovers? Thanks!
– Oh and BTW, I love your blog !!

    Hi Stefanny, absolutely you can definitely freeze leftovers!

I just found your blog and I’m so excited to make this for the hubby tonight! He loves spicy food! I’m looking forward to making this and other recipes from your blog.

    Oh if your husband likes spicy food you definitely have to try my honey sriracha chicken- one of the most popular recipes on my site and it might just be my personal favorite!!

I made this for dinner tonight for a bunch of spicy food lovers and they devoured it. Absolutely delicious, and super easy to make!

    So glad you – and the spicy food lovers – liked this!! I am a spicy food lover myself, can’t get enough!!!

This was really good and easy to make!! This didn’t thicken for me though, and I’m not sure why. I added more cornstarch and water, but no luck. I didn’t want to keep simmering to overcook the meat, so we just had it how it was. The taste was still out if this world!
