Recipe How to Cook Beef Tongue (Slow Cooker Gluten Free)

Grass fed beef tongue with Cherry BBQ Sauce

Grass fed beef tongue with Cherry BBQ Sauce

Enter the world of grass fed organ meats with me, if you dare.

Though, if you’ve been reading my blog recently, then you came into this unusual world of organ meats when I shared my delicious and “heart healthy” (hehe) Heart Stew recipe with you.

Heart? Liver? Tongue? What’s next? Not sure… kidneys are in my freezer but would you believe I’m freaked out about those the most?

Grass fed organic beef tongue. Are you ready?

Recipe Ginger Shallot Dressing: Raw Vegan Paleo Gluten Free

Fresh organic ginger

Fresh organic ginger

Making my own fresh organic dressings is the only way I consume salad. And since I like salad, I make a lot of fresh dressings. This is a 2.0 version of one I used to make, and it is one of my family’s favorites.

Ginger Shallot Dressing 2.0 (Raw Vegan Paleo Gluten Free)

  • 5 tablespoons raw organic olive oil or macadamia nut oil
  • 3 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1⁄2 teaspoon coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot (or 1 teaspoon onion powder)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger (or 1 teaspoon ground ginger)

Blend everything up and dress your salad.

Recipe Cherry BBQ Sauce (Paleo Gluten Free)

I created a Cherry BBQ sauce that is sweetener-free and oh-so-super delicious.

Ingredients for Cherry BBQ Sauce

Ingredients for Cherry BBQ Sauce (Paleo, Gluten Free)

I’ve used this recipe as a BBQ sauce over various styles of grass fed beef and bison (including tongue – strange, bizarre, and weird to be sure, but tasty). I’ve also added it to slow cooker stews for a mega flavorful stew experience.This fantastic Cherry BBQ Sauce recipe makes more than you’ll likely use with one dinner, like the grass beef tongue that will be featured with it soon. But, it’ll store well in the refrigerator for a few days to use on other foods like pastured eggs, wild caught fish, or other meat dishes. Or, you can freeze it.

Recipe Easiest French Toast Ever (Gluten Free)

Here’s a simple french toast recipe that my kid (and husband) love. It’s just toasted paleo bread with grass fed organic ghee, and organic maple syrup… But, surprisingly it tastes quite a bit like french toast, because the bread has both an eggy flavor and texture. It’s so easy that your kiddos can make it all by themselves, supervised while using the toaster.

*I consider this a paleo recipe (though perhaps not super strict paleo) because of the use of ghee or high vitamin butter oil.

Kid loving goodness

Recipe Rudolph Cherry Cobbler (Paleo Gluten Free Raw Vegan)

Rudolph Cherry Cobbler (Gluten Free. Paleo. Raw Vegan.)

I asked my husband, who has a birthday around the holidays, what he wanted to eat for his birthday dessert. He said without thinking twice, Rudolph Cherry Cobbler. It’s a raw vegan, paleo, and gluten free recipe from my Holidays Recipe Book that he’s been a raving fan of for the past five or so years. I said to him, “Really? That’s what you want for your birthday?” He said, “YES! It’s the best and I can’t eat just one serving, I keep going back for more.” I can’t say I blame him… it is friggin’ delish. The squishy and delicious cherries explode with flavor in your mouth.

Recipe Tomato Beef (or Bison) Slow Cooker Stew

Hhmmm all done and ready to eat.

Hhmmm all done and ready to eat.

Here’s another easy recipe that uses the slow cooker. I continue to sing the praises of using a slow cooker because it cooks the food at low-ish temperatures, it is so fracking easy to use, and using a slow cooker saves tons of time. This recipe, like many of mine lately, is slim on ingredients because I really love letting the fresh ingredients speak for themselves. I didn’t add garlic or anything (although the jar of sauce I use includes some lovely flavors with basil, onion, etc).

Recipe Bison (or Beef) Mexican Stew Slow Cooker Paleo Gluten Free

by Kristen Suzanne in gluten free, grass fed bison, paleo

 

Mexican Stew

Mexican Stew

When we buy grass fed red meat, we opt for both grass fed bison and grass fed beef. Bison is reputed to have lower fat and cholesterol than beef (not that I’m concerned about that though – we just appreciate variety). So, when cooking with bison, I’ll often increase the fat in my dish by adding avocado, grass fed butter, or coconut oil.

Here’s another easy recipe using a slow cooker (one of my favorite kitchen appliances, you all must know that by now though, right?) that delights my entire family. It’s just a handful of ingredients because that’s all you really need for delicious home cooked food.
