Primal Meat Sauce
05/11/2010 6 Comments
As many of you know, we had my parents fly in over the weekend with two other couples, so needless to say it was a great weekend, but very busy as they all stayed with us. Lot’s of meat was cooked up in a variety of ways with great veggies. So with that said, Henry and I were exhausted last night and had to take another day off from posting. We decided to whip up some grass-fed meat sauce that we love and served it over some spaghetti squash. I had mine plain as I was not that hungry after an amazing power yoga session. So the photo is obviously of my plate. :-) We have eaten this on top of a little bit of red quinoa or just wrapped in some butter lettuce.
- This feeds 4 hungry Primals if served with a side dish
- Active cooking/prep time is only 10 minutes, the rest of the 30 minutes is simmer time
Have a great Tuesday and enjoy this simple, but yet energy providing meal.
2 large Shallots sliced
We use a high-rimmed quart size pan with a lid.
Heat coconut oil on medium-high and add shallots and green onions – brown until glossy golden. Then add tomatoes, bell pepper, bay leaf and chiles. Sautee for about 5 minutes, and add mushrooms, majoram, cumin, caraway seed, continue to cook for another minute or two stirring all ingredients well. Then add grass-fed 85/15 ground beef. Be sure to break up any large chunks of meat so to ensure that spices and flavors can penetrate through the beef. Once the beef is slightly browned, add sea salt and stir well. Now add the tomato paste (it should not have any other ingredients except for tomatoes), and stir in 6 oz of water. Stir well, add vinegar, stir well once more, cover, and reduce heat to the lowest possible. Simmer for 30 minutes and serve with your favorite side dish.
We love it on top of spaghetti squash! Amazingly tasty and always a hit with our friends and family.
The best part is that you can prepare this dish in advance.
Note: Modify spices or ingredients to taste after simmer time is up. Sometimes extra salt is required.
