    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAINBOW NOODLE BOWL: Morphing rainbow bowls with salad into more warming broth bowls as the weather changes. This one hitting the spot with all the delicious spices in the broth. Really easy to pop together with whichever ingredients you have handy just blanched in the veggie turmericy lemony ginger chilli broth. If you don't have (leftover) baked sweet potato in the fridge (I tend to - ALWAYS!) then use whatever colourful veggie to make your bowl singggggg!!!!

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Naming this dish -  #lovelyleftovers  ...I truly believe some of my best creations come from the ‘scraps’ in the fridge. It forces me into a creative space that absolutely LOVE and ensures there is zero food waste in our home.

MEXICAN CHUCK STEAK TACOS

GF: DF: SF: PALEO

Serves 4

 

1 kg chuck steak, cut into 5cm dice

2 tablespoons ground cumin

2 tablespoons ground sweet paprika

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil

4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced

2 cups beef or vegetable stock

1x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 piece orange peel, approx 2x10cm

To serve : Tortilla, avocado, limes and tabasco (optional)

 

In a small bowl mix together cumin, paprika and cinnamon to create a spice rub for the meat. Place chuck steak in a large bowl, sprinkle spice mix through and toss to ensure an even coating over all pieces of meat.

Heat a heavy based casserole dish on medium heat, add 1tablespoon coconut oil and half the meat and brown the meat for approximately 2 minutes, tossing to ensure each side is sealed. Remove from pan and set aside in a separate bowl, then repeat the process with remaining beef.

Once all beef is browned and removed from pan, add the garlic to pan and cook 1 minute, then add stock, tomatoes, and orange peel and reduce heat to low. Add meat to pan, cover with lid and cook 1 hour on low heat, uncover and cook a further 1 hour.

After 2 hours of cooking, pull the meat apart whilst on the stove, so there are no longer diced pieces but shredded beef. Increase heat to medium and cook a further 30-45 minutes to reduce the liquid.

Once meat is cooked set aside to cool slightly before serving. Serve with tortilla, salsa and any other condiments of your preference. We opted for Chickpea Tortilla and Cucumber Apple and Jalapeno Salsa. Recipe below.
