Caramalized vegetables and beef mince.

A really delicious combination of tasty vegetables with grass fed beef mince cooked over several hours to produce a lovely caramalized appearance and flavour. The combination of spices, red cabbage, sweet potato and brussel sprouts with beef mince produces a hearty and nutritious dish.

The most beautiful mince dish!

Ingredients:

1kg grass fed beef mince

2 small onions diced

Spices: I used dried ginger, cumin, cinnamon and turmeric

Seasoning: Pink rock salt and black pepper

Coconut amino sauce (1 tablespoon)

1/4 red cabbage sliced

1 largish orange sweet potato grated

6 brussel sprouts sliced

2 tablespoons coconut oil (add just before cooking in the oven).

1 cup of home made bone broth

Method:

2015-03-05 19.56.41
Brown the beef mince in a pan. I didn’t add any fat as there was plenty in the meat.
2015-03-05 19.55.43
Add the diced onion, spices, seasoning & coconut amino sauce.

Add the spices  and seasoning to suit your own personal taste. I used a generous pinch of cinnamon, ginger & turmeric plus 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 a teaspoon of pink rock salt & a pinch of black pepper.

2015-03-05 19.54.55
While the meat is browning grate the vegetables. I used a food processor which was super quick.

Add the grated vegetables and mix well.

Mix through the bone broth and top with the coconut oil, extra pink rock salt and black pepper.

Bake uncovered in a 180 degree celsius oven for several hours. Turn with tongs every 30 minutes. The vegetables will slowly break down and caramalize while the amazing flavours develop. I served this on its own and it was a complete meal as it was.

Sticky, tasty and nutritious!

The main ingredient is the grass fed beef ribs. It is important to use the best meat possible and this will involve searching your area for a butcher who sells locally grown grass fed meat.

Wash your ribs in filtered water in preparation for cooking.

Make a marinade using a tablespoon each of coconut oil, coconut sugar and honey. Place in a saucepan and heat gently on the stove.

2014-10-22 17.05.27
Melt the marinade ingredients gently on the stove.

Place the ribs in a bowl and mix the marinade through so they are all coated.

Coated and ready for baking

Place the ribs into a baking tray. Season with pink rock salt and black pepper.

2014-10-22 17.08.32
I used a metal tray and didn’t use baking paper.

Cover with aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated 180 degree celsius oven for approximately 2 hours.

There will be a lovely aroma in your home as these ribs cook.

Serve the ribs with your favourite vegetables or salad.

Ribs with roasted swede, sweet potato, carrot and beetroot.

The longer you cook these ribs the more tender and tasty they become. The marinade is a feature and the cooking time allows for a wonderful stickiness to develop using all natural ingredients.
