One of my favorite things to do is cook, but many days I’m rushing to get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. When I’m in a pinch for time, my go-to meat is ground beef. It’s quick to cook and easily adaptable for so many meals that everyone in the family can enjoy. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes that takes only 20 minutes from start to finish!
This recipe for Korean Beef and Veggies is flavorful, super easy to make (and perfect for leftovers), and can be adapted for those on lower carb diets by serving in lettuce wraps instead of rice. This meal is made with ingredients you likely already have in the pantry/fridge (aside from sesame seed oil which I totally recommend keeping around as it’s flavor is spectacular). It’s a perfect simple and flavorful meal for week nights or when it’s the day or two before grocery shopping day when your pantry/fridge contents are dwindling.
While I’m talking about ease, I recently tried a new option when it comes to purchasing meat for our family. Farmers To Families is a company that provides single-sourced meats from their community farms delivered right to your doorstep. Most meats that you buy in the supermarket are sourced from multiple animals, if not dozens, which increases the risk of meat being contaminated (such as Listeria) through the processing that occurs in industrialized meat industries. In 2016, over 58 million pounds of meat product were recalled which is pretty staggering. Finding a company that provides single sourced meat products definitely is important to me as less processing means there are less opportunities for contamination.
Farmers to Families allows you to choose different size shares of meat (beef, pork and sausage) to purchase what is best for your families lifestyle and budget, and the best part is that it comes from only ONE animal. Their stock is pasture raised with no unneeded antibiotics or hormones which is definitely a huge selling point for me as well. I love the convenience of it being delivered right to my doorstep and that I have a large selection available to choose from. It saves me time due to not needing to continuously purchase meat and peace of mind not having to question the safety and quality as well. I definitely recommend giving Farmers to Families service a try! Every cut of meat that we have cooked has tasted great (for what it’s worth, I’m really picky about meat)!
