Balsamic Steak Rolls

Balsamic Steak Rolls

This delicious dish will be served at the Bayne household this Memorial Day weekend.

Directions:

  1. Season the steak slices with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and set aside.
  2. Melt the ghee in a skillet placed over a medium heat.
  3. Add the shallots and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the balsamic vinegar, honey, beef stock, and season again with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Transfer to a bowl.
  6. In the same skillet, add some cooking fat and cook the garlic for 1 or 2 minutes; then add all the remaining vegetables and cook until soft but still a little crunchy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Season with oregano, basil, sea salt and pepper, and transfer to a bowl.
  8. Arrange a small pile of vegetables in the center of each slice of beef. Tightly roll the meat around the filling, and secure with a toothpick.
  9. Return the beef rolls to the skillet, and cook over a medium-high heat on all sides until the meat is cooked through.
  10. Remove the toothpicks, spoon some of the balsamic sauce over the rolls, and serve.

Lunch in a Jar

Lunch in a jar

A clever idea to a healthy lunch!

The one thing to remember about salad in a jar is that your dressing goes on the bottom so therefore, you should only use things that do well “marinating” in dressing because the 2nd layer is going to be touching the dressing. The rest is pretty easy, here is a quick guide on how to make a salad in a jar.

1. Start by putting 2 Tablespoons of dressing into the bottom of the jar (see Balsamic Dressing below).

2. Add items that will respond well to marinating in the dressing.

  • cucumbers
  • squash
  • mushrooms

3. Add your remaining veggies and greens.

  • tomatoes
  • red bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • broccoli slaw
  • avocado sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
  • spring mix (lots of this – you can really pack it in)
  • sprouts

4. Add remaining ingredients.

  • Cooked Chicken, beef, fish, or nuts and seeds

Balsamic Dressing

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Braggs liquid aminos (or sea salt)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

 Preparation

1. Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a blender and blend.

2. Continue to blend at a low speed as you add olive oil, until it is completely emulsified
