Except for the occasional down and dirty burger, I am not a regular red meat-eater. If I can buy grass-fed beef or bison, however, I’m all in! And even if I can’t, I am learning to compromise with my husband’s culinary likes for the sake of simplicity and efficiency in cooking in an RV.
Here are my favorite beef recipes with a healthy slant. Click the link for the recipe.
A can of fire-roasted tomatoes, onion, garlic, diced green chiles, ancho chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cocoa powder give this slow-cooker dish a kick. I like to add some greens the last half hour. Serve with polenta or brown rice.
Yes, this is a paleo recipe, simple and complete in itself, courtesy of paleoleap.com. The apple, honey, and garlic give this dish a sweet rich flavor. Add a side carb of your choice.
I omitted the paleo-friendly coconut aminos and tapioca starch. According to thekitchn.com, coconut aminos are a gluten-free and low sodium alternative to soy sauce.

This mildly spiced comfort food recipe makes 2 batches so you can serve one and freeze one. I use grass-fed beef or bison when available.
