Clean Taco Salad

  This was too good not to share! 

It’s Tuesday which means it’s Taco night in this house!

What you will need:

  • Lean Ground Beef
  • Taco Seasoning (Epicure)
  • Pico Picante Seasoning (Epicure)
  • Shredded Cabbage
  • Any vegetables you want. I went with Tomatoes, Red Pepper, Red Onion and Celery
  • Mashed Avocado
  • Cilantro
  • Lime
  • Jalapeno

Epicure spices are great, first you can understand all the ingredients in the bottle and they are low sodium! 

Instead of having mine in a taco shell or wrap I decided just to have a salad. However, my Hubs and Nephew had theirs as a wrap and loved it! 

Alright now to cooking:

  1. Brown the Ground Beef with the Taco Seasoning (about 2tbsp) and the Pico Picante Seasoning (about 2 tbsp as well. The Pico Picante Seasoning is spicy so just adjust the amount to your heat level.  Taste as you go until you get it to the right flavour! 
  2. In a bowl combine the shredded cabbage and vegetables with the chopped cilantro, Jalapeño and lime juice. Again taste as you go (I threw in a little sprinkle of the Pico Picante Seasoning just to tie it all together!)
  3. Plate your salad with the ground beef on top and mashed Avocado! 

ENJOY!  

Beef Bourguinon

Beef BourguignonThis dish to me might be the perfect winter comfort food! This would be a great dish to make for friends and family.  It can be made well in advance, leaving you more time to enjoy your company.

This recipe is from Julia Child’s Cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”.  The recipe calls for stewing beef, however we used Beef Shanks instead and it was delicious!

Whenever possible we like to buy our meat or produce directly from the farm.  I like knowing where the product is coming from and also knowing the quality as well.  We purchased our Beef from an Alberta farm called Rose Ridge Farms.  Check out their website for all of the products that they provide.

If you are going to try out this recipe give yourself plenty of time.  You do not want to rush anything.  Plus the great thing about this is the longer the dish cooks the better it gets! Slow and Steady!
