Mark’s out of town and well, I went to Costco, again.
I have no idea what I was thinking … I wanted to pick up a few more boxes of the dishes, a few more boxes of hangers and some food … but not a lot.
And I didn’t really buy a lot but certainly MORE than one person needs for a week.
Part of that food was some top sirloin steaks or really, I’d call them mini-roasts as you know how Costco cuts their meats! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with some of it but the majority would most likely go to the freezer, cuz, you know, I don’t really have a freezer stash right now of meat …
Sunday rolls around, and I’m wondering if I am coming down with a cold? Is it the weather change coming? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? So I pop some Zicam and decide to make something for a little meal prep today … give my girlfriend a call and let her know I might be coming down with a cold but she is still more than welcome to come by if she’d like …
Technically, the hunks of beef I’m using are TOO good to make like this but I just don’t care. I’m looking forward to eating this for the next couple of days and some of the leftovers will be frozen for a surprise dinner down the road!
3 pounds or so of a hunk of beef. A roast or whatnot is generally the type of beef you want to use when you cook it low and slow
2 cups of chicken broth (I used 2 tsps Better Than Bouillon and 2 cups boiling water)
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar (emptied out the bottle)
2 tbs coconut aminos (or if you prefer, you can use soy sauce, low sodium)
1 tsp fish sauce (optional but man, I SO recommend it! Red Boat is my preference)
Rosemary … fresh preferred but since this was a spur of the moment cooking session, I used dried and a lot of it
Ghee or avocado oil. Do not use butter or olive oil as you will need to heat at a VERY high heat
Heat up your large pan (I used a dutch oven cuz it’s going in the oven!) and add about 2 tbs of ghee or avocado oil
Generously salt and pepper both sides of the meat. Turn on your stove fan/filter. Add the beef to the pan and leave it be for about 7 minutes or so. Flip and leave alone again.
Turn heat down and add all the rest of your seasonings. Take a tip from me, measure everything out in a large (4 cup) measuring glass so you can just pour it all in at once.
Put a lid on the pot, turn your oven to 300 degrees. Put pan in oven, set timer for 3 1/2 to 4 hours and go do your thing for a while.
When done, remove pot from oven and let sit for 20 minutes or so. Grab a pair of tongs and pull the beef out of the pot to a tray. Go ahead, snag a little piece to taste.
It’s SPOT ON, isn’t it? ENJOY! I served mine up with some green beans but I’m thinking some mashed potatoes with a little bit of those pan drippings would be awesome!
