Beef in Bone Broth Gravy
by Collette White | June 12, 2015
Good Afternoon friends! Happy Friday! I hope this finds you all well and I hope you had a lovely week.
You know those nights when you don’t feel like cooking? Well that has been me the last week. I normally do ‘eggs’ on REALLY lazy night or on ‘just’ lazy nights I do stir fries.
So this was my plan for last night … I had beef stir fry strips (already cut) and Miss 12 was cutting up some veg for me. After heating the oil in the pan I realised that everything wasn’t going to fit … so I had to come up with a plan B … and this was it! Starting off with not feeling like cooking anything turned into a glorious comforting and tasty meal that the entire family devoured! Seriously! I love it when dinners of ‘this and that’ turn out this good! I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys and have you try it, so here it is … I hope you love it as much as we do … why not pop it on your meal plan for next week? Let me know how you go!
1 tspn oil
5 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 onions – cut into wedges
1kg beef stir fry strips
1 cup bone broth (I used Lamb but you can use any)
3 tblspns honey
3 tblspns tamari (wheat free soy sauce)
1 heaped tspn freshly grated turmeric
good pinch salt and pepper
2 large zucchini – roughly sliced
2-4 tblspns of flour (I used brown rice flour)
Optional: Steamed Veg, Rice, Cauli Rice, Mashed Veg etc to serve it on (to soak up that delicious gravy!)
In a large fry pan place the oil, garlic and onion. Fry over a medium – high heat for a few minutes – until fragrant and the onions are transparent (don’t burn!)
Add the beef and stir until it is half cooked (if you are using stir fry strips this won’t take long).
Add the remaining ingredients (except for the zucchini and flour). Reduce heat to a low simmer and combine ingredients well. Simmer for approximately 5-10 minutes to finish cooking the meat and reduce the liquid slightly.
Add the zucchini and mix through for a further 1 minute only.
Option: serve as is (if you have something to soak up the broth eg Vegetable Mash) OR
Add the flour and thicken to make a gravy.
* you can use the same amount of dried Turmeric if you don’t have fresh
* I served mine with steamed cauliflower and broccoli – it served 2 adults, 4 kids and an adult sized meal leftover.
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
