In the colder months, or just a lazy Sunday, it's nice to be able to throw a bunch of stuff into a pot and eat dinner a little while later! Barney Butter and my haul from Christiansen Family Farm was inspiration for one of those moments ;)
What you'll need:
8c beef stock
2 lbs cubed, cooked beef
1 bag frozen cauliflower, steamed & ready to go (or 1 head fresh)
1 small bag baby carrots
1 large chopped zucchini
1 can diced tomatoes
3 stalks chopped celery
1 large chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2c almond butter (Barney Butter is my fave!)
1T chopped fresh parsley
ground black pepper to taste
Cube your beef and sear it. I threw mine under the broiler. 4 mins each side.
In very large pot, combine stock, meat, cauliflower and carrots. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook 10 mins or until vegetables are tender.
Add zucchini, tomatoes, celery, onion, and garlic. Simmer for 8 mins.
Add almond butter, parsley, and pepper; stir until almond butter is fully blended. Simmer for 5 mins more. Allow to cool for 10.
I wish you could smell this. I don't suppose your monitor is equipped with smell-o-vision?
This was really tasty! The only thing I think it was missing were some hot, buttered, White Lion rolls!
Tuck in, dudes! <3
