FEED THE CLAN - A Paleo Family on a Budget

Family Chow 9/10/13 – With Paleo Mongolian Beef & Veggie Lo Mein Recipes

Mongolian Beef

Breakfast for the girls today was fried eggs, a pluot and a slice of my Paleo Plantain Bread made with bananas. Lunch was leftover Paleo Chile Colorado for all of us. For dinner I decided on Mongolian beef. I love the thick, sweet sauce and the crunch of the scallions. I would say that that and kung pao chicken (recipe will come) are my 2 favorite Asian dishes. I paired it with a veggie lo mein that I created using angel hair miracle noodles. If you haven’t tried them, you really should. They’re awesome for Asian dishes, zero calories, less than 1 carb per serving and are quite filling.

Paleo Mongolian Beef

1 1/2 lbs thin sliced bottom round, trimmed of fat and sliced into strips
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup coconut aminos
1/4 cup broth of choice
1/8 cup molasses
1/8 cup coconut sugar
6 scallions, chopped
4 tbsp bacon grease, or fat of choice

Heat 2 tbsp of bacon grease over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and saute for a minute. Next add in the coconut aminos and broth and simmer for about 3 minutes. Add in the molasses and coconut sugar and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened up. In the meantime, add the arrowroot to a shallow dish and lightly coat the sliced meat. Heat the other 2 tbsp bacon grease in a large saute pan over medium heat and cook the meat until browned, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the sauce and scallions and cook for another minute.

Veggie Lo Mein

Paleo Veggie Lo Mein

1 package of miracle noodle angel hair noodles, prepared per package instructions
1 small head of broccoli, chopped into flowerets
1 red bell pepper, sliced
3 scallions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup coconut aminos
2 tbsp hoisin
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp bacon grease, or fat of choice

Heat the bacon grease in a saute pan and add the bell pepper, garlic and broccoli. Cook until bell peppers start to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in the noodles, coconut aminos and hoisin, combining well. Put a lid on the pan and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until the broccoli has softened. Stir in the scallions and drizzle with the sesame oil.
