Grass Fed Beef Recipes
A final BBQ with family and friends to say farewell to summer is something I look forward to every year. Another thing I’m looking forward to this year is making a burger bar! Instead of plain boring burgers I’m going to have all sorts of delicious toppings, cheeses and sauces so that each of my guests can create their own custom burger just the way they like it or maybe even try something new!
In these last few weeks of lazy summer days I’m craving barbecue, lots and lots of barbecue. I made pulled pork sandwiches in the crock-pot to keep up with the easy theme. Just toss all your ingredients in before you leave for the day and come home to the sweet and savory smells and knowing your dinner is done!
Instead of making my kids popular processed hamburger dinners out of a box, I like to experiment with fresh ingredients that appeal to kids taste buds. This weeks recipe is a favorite for my boys. They call it cheeseburger pasta and I must admit it tastes a lot like a cheeseburger without the bun of course. I sneak in fresh vegetables like sliced onions and lots of fresh broccoli and because everything gets a generous amount of cheddar cheese the kids don’t seem to mind one bit, in fact they often ask for seconds!
This fourth of July why not try grilling something a little different? I like to make Mediterranean grilled steak and vegetable foil pack dinners. They are quick to prepare and clean up is a breeze because you can throw away your plate when you are done!
I marinate my steak cubes in some olive oil and fresh herbs while I cut up my veggies and heat up my grill. My kids love that they can take their dinner from the grill to anywhere in the backyard and have a little picnic packet dinner!
Homemade vegetable beef soup isn’t just for the winter season. This recipe is full of spring inspired vegetables and hearty chunks of beef, and the broth is so rich and flavorful. A tasty soup that’s perfect for lunch or dinner for the whole family!
My family loves to cook and entertain. One person in particular is my Uncle Ken who is known for his famous chili burrow’s recipe. This dish is best described as a Mexican chili that you stuff into a flour tortilla shell like a burrito hence the name chili burrow. Combining ground beef and steak with green chilis creates a spicy yet tangy filling for a burrito! This recipe has been a family favorite for many years and trust me this recipe feeds a crowd! I hope you all will enjoy them as much as we do.
Tomorrow is Labor Day, are you having one last summer party to celebrate? If so try these sloppy joe’s, an old family recipe that is perfect for any potluck or family gathering! These sloppy joes are simple to make and have a sweet and tangy flavor that will have your family and friends wanting more. The best part of this simple sandwich is that you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry which makes whipping them up anytime a breeze! Try pairing them with a delicious Fresh and Natural Signature Coleslaw or Bacon Broccoli Request Salad for a complete meal!
This weather is getting me down. Instead of looking like Spring, it is feeling like those windy, snowy days of January. Cold weather always gets me in the mood for soup. But I must confess, this recipe was meant for a total different direction, and soup wasn’t one of them. This bisque might take the cake as in my most delicious, fast and easy category for soups. Some of you may criticize the canned ingredients. But these companies products are canned in BPA free cans!
I should add that I am a meal planner. One day a week is designated to prepping so meals are easy and fast throughout the week. One way I do this is by creating a large amount of protein such as chicken or ground beef. Today, I made 2 pounds of grass-fed beef with onions. I refrigerated half for later and added a pound of mushrooms to the other half in the pan. The recipe calls for a lot of garlic. I’ve discovered that if you are trying to get away from the coconut flavor, add more garlic.
Minnesotans are known for their Swedish and Norwegian ancestry. My family is no exception. We have our traditional Swedish meatball dinner every Christmas that has been passed down over five generations. The simplicity of the ingredients is what I believe is what makes the meatball and gravy so delicious. My husband especially loves this meal. On vacation in Florida, my grandma, who lived there, made the traditional family dinner like only she could make it. The thing of it was she made a 38 quart size pot of just Swedish meatballs and gravy for 7 of us. She didn’t know how to cook small portions. The motto in our family always was “well you gotta eat.” After we had all dished out our plates, it looked at is if no one had eaten. My grandma found great joy in cooking and people’s appreciation for her meals. We all knew it too, so my husband in his attempt to show his gratitude ate 17 meatballs a little bigger than the size of a golf ball that year. We all laugh about it now. While he won’t be making an encore of that day, he loves it when I make Swedish meatballs, but it is very time consuming meal. I have since made an easier version that can be made for a everyday dinner. It is sure to bring happiness and satisfaction to your meat and potato eater in your family.
