Although fermented cabbage has been around in some form or another since ancient times – Roman author Pliny the Elder wrote of the stuff in the first century A.D. – modern methods for making sauerkraut were developed sometime between the 16th and 18th centuries. It’s primarily known as a German staple, but most other European countries use it in their traditional dishes. It’s pretty easy to understand why it was so popular: it keeps for a long time without refrigeration. Dutch, German, and English sailors found that the vitamin C-rich kraut prevented scurvy on the open seas, and the fact that it was salted and fermented made it ideal for long voyages without other preservation methods.
Ok. Ok. Yesterday’s “What’s for Dinner Tonight?” post may not have appealed to everyone. I hear you. Organ meat, especially to people that have never experienced them, can be challenging in more than one way (if you can accomplish selecting and preparing it you still have to – gulp! – eat it). For everyone that can’t get past thinking that offal is just plain awful here is a quick and easy recipe that is sure to add a kick to conventional chicken recipes. And, while I realize it does contain a little cheese – which generally falls into the gray area of sensible vices – there is so little, that it won’t throw your Primal eating plan off its tracks.
Sure, you could just pick up the phone and order in a number 14 from your local Chinese restaurant, but this homemade recipe for Beef and Broccoli is so easy – and so much healthier – you’ll want to remove the take-out menu from the prime spot on your refrigerator!
1 lb sirloin steak, sliced thin
1 lb broccoli florets
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Think you’re the only one scrambling to figure out what’s for dinner tonight? We all do it – fly in from work absolutely famished, dig through the freezer and come up with nothing but a pair of lamb chops from the mid-90s and a bag full of sorry looking frozen beans.
Today, however, we present a recipe that is quick, tasty and perfectly primal. Need more incentive? Besides the eggplant and ground meat, the recipe contains ingredients that you’re likely to already have in your pantry.
