Where’s the beef? In my freezer…and there’s A LOT of it. We picked up our beef share this week and holy cow (no pun intended) we’ve got some beef to eat. I’m hoping it will last us through next year, but who knows! This is our first year doing a beef share and I’m pretty excited about it. Not only to save money, but because I bought the beef literally three miles from our house. We watch the beef graze and hang out in green pastures every day on our way home. I can call up the farm and tell them something’s not right, and they’ll take care of it. These beef are happy cows, have room to roam, and have only the finest pastures to eat from. I’m pretty happy to show my son and teach him exactly how the food in our house goes from farm to table.
One of my favorite freezer books is Don’t Panic Dinner’s in the Freezer by Susie Martinez. The book is filled with easy recipes and written out for you to double, triple, quadruple etc. I especially love that all of the contributing writers are from right here in Colorado. When I came across this recipe I wasn’t too sure, it seemed crazy to have that much vinegar into a beef dish, but wow it enhances the flavor so well! This is now a staple ready made beef dish in our house and is super easy for those last minute meal nights.
