After Christmas I don't know about you but I get real tired of grocery shopping and extremely stingy with money. So I try to find items I have in my pantry and get creative with meals. Bison and Broccoli over rice was created this time. I had 2 lbs of Organic grass fed Bison I picked up at Kroger on sale a few weeks ago. You could always use ground beef or turkey, whatever you have on hand. We usually always have some type of rice, our favorite lately has been Jasmine Rice but we were out. If I flavor veggies really well, my kids usually eat them, so broccoli is my go-to to have on hand.
If you want to make this lower carb, I would used riced cauliflower as your base instead of rice. Or if you're trying to get more fiber in your diet, Brown Rice is a much better option.
But for the sake of this dinner we were going with what we already in the cabinets.
The other items are staples to. I've been gluten-free for years now with my thyroid and so I try to make sauces more autoimmune friendly so instead of Soy Sauce I use Organic Coconut Aminos. The sauce is delicious and to me taste better than regular Soy Sauce. You'll also need garlic powder, chili powder, apple cider vinegar, an 8 oz can of tomato sauce, and lastly salt and pepper. Now let's whip this meal up fast.
Bison and Broccoli over rice
2 lbs Bison
Steamed bag of Broccoli florets
3 Cups of Rice
8oz can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Aminos
2 Tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
2 Tsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tsp Pepper(add more to taste)
1 Tsp Salt
Brown bison in pan.
Cook broccoli in microwave as directed
While those are cooking make your sauce, use a medium bowl and whisk the tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos and spices.
When bison is finished, drain fat.
Return Bison to pan and add broccoli, and then pour sauce over it and combine over low heat for 5-8 min. or until warm.
Serve hot! Enjoy!
I didn't realize how tasty this meal would be and my kids had seconds, which says a lot because they don't love all my weeknight creations, but I was proud of myself for adding a new recipe to the regular menu board.
**Tip: You can a little more Coconut Aminos by the tablespoon if you like a saltier flavor!
