Paleo Salisbury Steak – Mushroom Gravy with Veggies on the Side

I found this seriously-delicious recipe for Salisbury Steak and Mushroom Gravy on the paleOMG.com website.  Loved it!  I served it up with organic baby carrots (cooked a small amount of water seasoned with ghee and dill) and some organic kale salad that was “massaged” with a bit of salt and organic olive oil.  They were the perfect compliment to the steak!

Take a peek at the original recipe at paleOMG.com.  My version was modified just a bit:

  • 1 lb. Organic, Grass Fed Ground Beef (@$5 at Aldi) – YES! Aldi
  • 1 Cage free Organic Extra Large Brown Eggs (<$1 at Meijer)
  • 1 Organic Garlic Clove, minced (<$1 at Produce Depot)
  • 1/2 Organic Onion, minced  (<$1 at Meijer)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme
Mix up all the ingredients for the steaks (above) into a large mixing bowl and use your hands to mix everything thoroughly. Form the meat into four oval patties. Cook in skillet about 3-5 minutes each side depending how thick you made them and how pink you want them inside.  Remove cooked patties and start the gravy:
  • 2 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil (< $1 from Herb Thyme)
  • ¾ cup Organic Beef Broth (@ $1 from Produce Depot)
  • ½ 6oz can Coconut Milk (@ $2 from Produce Depot)
  • 1 lb.  Organic Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced  (@$4 at Meijer)
  • 1 Organic Garlic Clove, minced (<$1 at Produce Depot)
  • 1/2 Organic Onion, minced  (<$1 at Meijer)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
Add coconut oil, onions, and garlic to the pan and cook over medium-high heat. Let the onions cook until they become translucent. Add the rest of your ingredients including the coconut milk, broth, mushrooms and seasonings.  Mix together and let cook down a bit. Once the onions are beginning to soften, cover the pan and turn the heat down low to let cook, stirring occasionally.
“So tasty!” is the perfect description –
Many thanks to the folks at PaleoOMG.com
Serve 4 people at approx $5 per serving.

My Mom … The Doctors … The Scientists … and The Paleo Diet

My Mom:

Tonight, my Mom called to tell me that “The Doctors” show had a segment on GMO’s.  I love that she is in her mid-80’s and keeping up with current events!  Oh, she also reported that ALDI was selling ORGANIC BANANAS today.  I love that she cares about what she is eating.   – Love you, Mom!

 

The Doctors:

So, I checked their link online (which contained lots of interesting information and helpful links to additional information)  … Among other things, here’s what they had to say:

“That may be one of the reasons why things like food allergies [and] autoimmune problems are skyrocketing,” pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears adds. “Peanut allergies in kids have tripled in the last decade.”

Commercialized GMO Crops in the U.S.
Soy (93%)
Cotton (93%)
Canola (90%)
Corn (86%)
Sugar Beets (95%)
Hawaiian Papaya (more than 50%)
Zucchini
Yellow Squash
Alfalfa

More information from this episode of  “The Doctors” can be found on this link.

 

The Scientists:

And then there’s the article that ran across my Facebook feed … from “Eat Local Grown

… “there’s an identical rise in over 30 human diseases correlated with our increased usage of glyphosate and the increased prevalence of genetically engineered proteins in our food.” … If you have an hour to get educated about this, there is a video embedded that is very scientific and terrifying to me.  It’s an interview with Dr. Don Huber, who is likely the leading GMO expert in the world. He is an award-winning, internationally recognized scientist, and professor of plant pathology at Purdue University for the past 35 years.

 

The Paleo Diet:

Last but not least, I received confirmation that following the Paleo Diet can protect us from many of the EVILS present in our current food supply.  Check out the article published by the Huffington Post, called  “The Paleo Diet: 13 Facts About Eating Like A Hunter-Gatherer”.  If you are new to all of this, I highly recommend this read.

Don’t you just love it when everything points in the same direction?
