Old Farm Recipes
I like things old and turned new again. There are a lot of old farm recipes that are efficient and simple. I think it's approporate in this day-in-age to cook in ways that aren't just quicker but to cook in ways in which we can minimize food waste and at the same time be creative. Many of these recepies allow you to change the type of meats, veggies, cheeses and so on to accomdate you and your families taste.
Let me know which is your favorite!
1 Pre bought pie shell
1 lb of Ancestral Farms Ground Beef
1/2 Cup of Chopped Onion
1 1/2 Cups of Cut Green Beans
1/8 Tsp of Pepper
1/8 Tsp of Salt
4 Medium Potatoes
1 Egg (beaten in mini bowl)
1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Pre-heat oven 350 degrees
In large skillette first cook the ground beef, you can add the chopped onion as well. Sprinkle the salt and pepper. Add green beans after beef is cooked, mix everything, then cover and set aside.
Boil the potatos, make sure you can easily put a fork through a potato, this is how you tell they are fully cooked. Drain the water, mash the potatoes adding the beaten egg (you may add a little milk to make creamier)
Add all the skillet items to the pie crust. Even it out (you may have extra and just set it aside) and then drop potato in mounds or spread evenly. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top or before placing the potato on.
6 Whole Beets (small in size)
4 tbls of Butter
4 tbls of Flour
1 1/2 Cups of Milk
1/2 Cup of Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup of Grated Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper
Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees
Peel beets and cut in slices. Arrange beets on bottom of glass or ceramic dish.
Melt the butter in small saucepan, add flour and stir till blended (no lumps). Then stir in the milk and cook until thick and smooth. Add salt and pepper. Pour over beets.
In seperate bowl mix breadcrumbs and cheese, with 2 tbls of melted butter. Spread over the beets and bake in oven.
- 2 lbs of Ancestral Farms Ground Beef
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup of Gluten Free Bread Crumbs
- 1/3 cup of Beef Broth
- Pink Himalayan Salt (big difference in meat taste using this type of salt rather than table salt)
- Ground Pepper
- Ground Onion Powder
Mix it all together ( I use my bare hands to mix it all so it's an even mixture). I often use miniature or regular size muffin pans and fill the space in the pan - it allows them to cook a lot faster like within 15 minutes (the mini pan). Or without using the pan the trick I use is an ice cream scoop and plop it on a cookie sheet!
BEEF POT ROAST
(Crock pot style)
2.5 lbs of Ancestral Farms Grass Fed Beef Chuck Cut
1 Container of Beef Stock
1 Stick of Butter
3 Garlic Cloves
TBSP of Oregano
1/2 Tsp of Pepper
1/2 Tsp of Salt
As many carrots you can fit in the pot
Set Crock Pot on LOW to cook all day (8 hours)
This is something that you can quickly prep before heading to work in the morning. If you want even quicker prep - don't include veggies.
The slow cook for this beef cut creates the most tendar bites!
