Pork Stew

Pork Stew
Standard

Traditionally, stew takes hours to cook. But who has time for that?!

This Pork Stew recipe is made stir-fry style with fresh tomatoes, onions, jalapeños and spices, and utilizes natural apple sauce to create a stew-like gravy.

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 pound pork, sliced into strips
1/4 cup tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup onions, chopped finely
1 tablespoon jalapeños, chopped
1/2 teaspoon oregano spice
2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce

RECIPE

In a medium saute pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the pork strips to the pan, season with the oregano and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pork Stew Preparation
Once the pork is almost fully cooked, add the tomato, onion and jalapeño, before turning the heat up to medium-high.

Allow the tomato and onion to soften while the meat soaks up the flavor.

Pork Stew Dish
Last but not least, add the apple sauce to the dish and continue to cook for another minute or two, stirring continuously.

Serve hot and enjoy!

A Gourmet Fish Topping

this-labor-day-take-a-moment-to-appreciate-mustard4
Standard

Fish is one of the most nutritious meals you can give your body. However, sometimes with fish we can get a little bored because we tend to repeat recipes that we know. We do this because fish can be one of those intimidating dishes to make. Don’t worry though; we have you covered with this great fish “marinade” which is really more of a topping. I prefer it on salmon but it goes great with most fish.

INGREDIENTS

1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard (Plaeo Leaps has a great recipe to make your own, take a look here)
1 tomato
2 basil leaves

*note: this is good for roughly two small fillets, you may need to double or triple this recipe depending upon how much you’re cooking.

RECIPE

In a small bowl mash together garlic and salt. You may need to use a spoon to grind the two together, you will end up with a mash consistency mixture.
Add mustard to mixture, combine thoroughly and place aside.
Wash and slice tomato, you’ll want the tomato to be thin, no more than 1/8” thick.
Wash and slice basil into strips.
Taking fillets, spread mustard mixture over top evenly.
Place tomato slices on top of fish, covering whole fillet. The tomato layer should only be one slice thick (do not place tomato slices on top of each other as this will cause fish to cook unevenly).
Cook or grill fish until fillet is cook through. (Temperature and length will depend on your fish and cooking method, because you are layering the mustard mixture and tomatoes on top of the fillet it may take a few extra minutes to cook all the way through).
Place fresh basil on top of fillets and cook two additional minutes.
Remove and serve.

This is one of the best ways to prepare fish for individuals who are not big fish eaters. It cuts down drastically on the “fishiness” of fish. For those of you who like fish, you’re in for a great treat.

Enjoy!

On a dinner plate, lay the steak strips out to form the bed of the dish.
Top with the greens and then decorate with sun-dried tomatoes and blueberries.
Finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and enjoy while the steak is still warm.

Simple Pork Sausage Patties

Breakfast Patties
Standard

The best way to start the morning off is with a hearty breakfast. I’ve found that there is nothing better than a sausage patty or a piece of bacon when I need to make sure to have energy for the day. The following is a simple recipe for sausage patties. The best part about it is that it can easily be customized to fit your taste buds. If you know that you do or do not like a certain spice try substituting your preferences in this recipe. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make a breakfast staple for yourself.

INGREDIENTS

1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon mace
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 – 2 tablespoons coconut oil

RECIPE

In a bowl combine all ingredients except coconut oil.
Mix together with hands, cover and let sit overnight in fridge.
Remove from fridge and form into sausage patties.
Heat coconut oil over medium, high heat.
Place patties in pan and cook for roughly 10 minutes, flipping occasionally.
Your cooking length will depend upon what size you make your patties, I always recommend checking one patty to ensure it is cooked all the way through before consuming.
After your patties are cooked, remove and let cool.

I make these patties before my week starts and bring them with me to work every morning so that I don’t miss out on a much needed breakfast. They also double as a great snack to get you through to your next meal.

Enjoy!
