After a 1 1/2 weeks without grass-fed beef, I have learned an important lesson: DO NOT RUN OUT OF GRASS-FED BEEF!
A few things amaze me:
1. That I was a vegetarian for 12 years. What was I thinking? How did I do it? What was my problem? Just… why?
2. That we really only ate chicken almost every night for the three or so years after I gave up being a vegetarian. How did we not get incredibly bored?
Now trust me, I love chicken. But I guess after you’ve been spoiled with tons of variety and regular servings of delicious beef, chicken just seems a little bland!
Last week we ate alot of chicken. We made some amazing dishes, but I was SO happy when my beef order arrived on my doorstep on Tuesday morning! We had steak that very night, and ground beef (fajitas!!) the next night.
One of our favorite steak recipes is a spice-rub. It is great on baked roasts, or on skillet steak. And a big serving of mashed cauliflower is a great accessory (tastes just like mashed potatoes)! I probably should have added another vegetable… something green… but I guess I was just too excited about the ribeye.
If you have not yet tried grass-fed beef, you are totally missing out! Check out my article on the many health benefits, and then find a farmer right away! We love Little Creek Ranch. They ship nationwide, and their beef is amazing.
