Sesame Ginger Pepper Steak Stir Fry

Jul 26, 2012 by

This came together because I had peppers leftover from the 10-minute chili we made the other day and a steak in the freezer. That’s it, really. I threw some spices in to make it like pepper steak. The key to this, I think, is marinating the meat ahead of time IF you are using a poorer cut of meat. Flank steak? Marinate 2 hours. London broil?...

Indian Beef Stew

Jul 22, 2012 by

Okay, so I started out making beef Rogan Josh – one of my favorite things to order when I we go for Indian food – and then everyone lost their damn minds. Apparently, it wasn’t “real” or “authentic” and Rogan Josh is made only with lamb and with this very rare spice only found on the left side of a...

Paleo Pumpkin Beef Stew with Acorn Squash and Cran...

Oct 26, 2011 by

Well the title pretty much sums this all up.  I make soups and stews a lot, and often I make what we call “schtoups” – a hybrid somewhere between a super thick stew and a thin, brothy soup. Because we don’t use gluten and I try and remain grain-free whenever possible, I’ve learned some new tricks to thicken stews and...

Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps

Mar 24, 2011 by

In the last grass-fed meat box we got from Meadowhaven Farms there was a large chuck roast. Notoriously grass-fed chuck roasts can be tough and fatty. The meat is amazing but it’s usually so marbled with fat that it’s hard to actually make a roast out of.  So we often use our KitchenAid grinder attachment and simply make extra ...

Provolone-Stuffed Prosciutto Burgers

Feb 23, 2011 by

Why yes! I did just post a recipe with Prosciutto! How observant of you! Last weekend, I had sent my husband to the store for a few slices to make the Prosciutto-Wrapped Goat Cheese and Walnut Stuffed Dates. He came home with half a pound! Despite my very best snacking efforts, a few days later I still had a whole lot left. I also had some ground...

Asian Beef and Fried Cauliflower Rice Bowls

Feb 4, 2011 by

This post submitted to Fight Back Fridays on Food Renegade! —— I had some grass-fed stew meat from Meadowhaven Farms defrosted but didn’t feel like making soup or stew. I also had a head of cauliflower in the fridge that was in danger of sprouting legs and killing me in my sleep if I didn’t use it soon. So I finagled a way...

Ligonberry and Sage Beef Short Ribs

Jan 31, 2011 by

I have actually never made short ribs before, which I realize comes as a huge shock. I have to admit, I’ve been intimidtated by them. But there have been a few recipes floating around lately, most recently this one, that helped me get over my fear. I had this small package of grass-fed short ribs from the last time we picked up an order from...

Sweet and Savory Sage Stew with Pumpkin and Cherri...

Nov 19, 2010 by

I have a few things in queue to post but since the weekend is coming up and it’s cold in most places, I figured you guys might like an easy crockpot recipe. I made this one before but it was before I went grain-gluten-free and now my whole approach to stews and thickening agents has changed — for the better I think, since I tend to...

Everything but the Kitchen…Schtoup?

Oct 28, 2010 by

I’m not sure if it was my grandfather or my mother who coined the term, but growing up we always had “schtoup” — not quite a stew but not quite a soup. And basically it was anything that we had in the fridge, thrown in a pot with some broth. Often we’d thicken it with a roux. However, since I no longer eat grain,...

Crockpot Beef Bean and Cabbage Soup

Oct 5, 2010 by

Ok so I know some people who eat primally shun legumes. There’s some compelling arguments why, but for me, I think I’d dig myself a shallow grave and weep bean-free tears until I mummified myself if I could never have peanut butter again. I tolerate them well and can’t deny the nutritional impact some legumes deliver. That being...
