This recipe is perfect for anyone who is crazy busy or for my peeps who don’t like to spend too much time in the kitchen.
For all my beef recipes, even ground beef, I use grass-fed only. It is completely up to you the type of meat you consume, but the taste and quality are noticeable. Plus, conventional meats don’t even match the benefits that grass-fed meats offer.
Cows are meant to roam pastures freely eating grass, not corn or soy. When they are raised in this way, their meat is rich with healthy fats (Omega 3 and CLA, which can help reduce inflammation in the body) as well as tons of vitamins as A, D, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, magnesium and copper.
It is worth investing a couple more dollars on good quality grass-fed meats because the benefits are unbeatable. Good thing it is becoming more and more popular, even regular grocery stores are starting to carry grass-fed. The more demand is created by our consumption the more access and lower prices our society will have to quality meats.
15 Minute Beef Bowl
- 1 lb. ground beef (preferably grass-fed)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp chilli pepper flakes
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp butter or ghee
- Melt the fat of your choice in a large skillet over medium heat. I prefer to use iron cast skillet.
- Saute onions until translucent. About 5 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.
- Mix in tomato paste with just a couple tablespoons of water. Mix well.
- Add ground beef. Season with paprika, chili pepper flakes, cumin and pepper.
- Cook for 7-10 minutes.
- Once beef is cooked to your liking, add fresh cilantro and season with sea salt. The reason why I add sea salt at the end is because it makes beef dry if you add it while is cooking. I don’t know the science behind this, but from my experience I know is true. 🙂
- Serve with sprouted brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice.
