Smothered Cabbage with Ground Beef

 

1 head Cabbage, shredded

1 pound Ground Beef

1 Onion, chopped

1 clove Garlic, chopped fine or crushed

½ cup Beef Broth, + more, if needed

3 slices bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces

Salt and pepper  ( omit pepper for AIP)

In dutch oven, or other heavy pot, begin browning bacon pieces on medium heat. When about halfway browned, add ground beef and onions.  Cook until all meat is browned and onions are clear. Lower heat.  Add cabbage, garlic, broth, salt and pepper.  Stir all ingredients together.  Cook, with lid on pot, until cabbage is wilted, adding small amounts of broth as needed to keep from drying out.  Typically, this will take 20 to 30 minutes.  When all cabbage is wilted, raise heat to medium, remove pot lid, and allow all liquid to be absorbed.  Continue to cook, stirring often, to brown and smother cabbage.  This should take about 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6

Cook Time: 1 hour

Paleo Slow Cooker Rabbit and Cabbage Recipe

Paleo Slow Cooker Rabbit and Cabbage Recipe

I realize my timing, of releasing this recipe, may be a little off.  I know Lent and the Easter season is upon us.  To release a rabbit recipe may be seen as a bit odd.  I don’t personally have anything against the Easter bunny. I think bunnies are cute, furry little creatures.

But, in an attempt to get back to my roots, I just couldn’t pass up the chance to cook up this rabbit I found at my local butcher.  He was just lying there, ready to go.  If I didn’t buy him, maybe no one would.  Then, he would never be able to serve a purpose.  He would have died in vain.  So, I bought him and brought him home.

Once home, I realized I had no idea how to cook a rabbit.  I had to dive deep into my memories to remember how my Ma used to cook them.  I can’t tell you how many mornings I looked into the kitchen sink, and saw a dead, skinless rabbit, looking back at me.  Okay, I know it wasn’t actually staring at me; but, it still was a shock to my system.

I remembered, she used to cook them in a large, stainless steel pot, for hours.  Why couldn’t I use my slow cooker instead?  And, what else could I cook to go along with it?  Cabbage!

So, I created this recipe with a distant memory, and some serious experimentation.  I am happy to report, it turned out pretty, darn good, if I do say so myself.  I hope you like it.

And, for anyone upset with the fact that I’m cooking and eating a rabbit, let me just explain the Cajun way a little bit.  In the wise words of my Cajun Dad, Wayne-O, “I eat anything that doesn’t eat me first.”

Paleo Slow Cooker Rabbit and Cabbage

1 Head cabbage, sliced in rounds

1 cup Chicken Broth,Pacific Natural Foods Organic Free Range Chicken Broth, 32-Ounce Containers (Pack of 12)rabbit Paleo Slow Cooker Rabbit and Cabbage Recipe ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a B002FYJTCE

1 Onion, sliced

1 Tbsp Dried Basil

Salt and Pepper (AIP, leave pepper out)

Heat skillet or pan with oil on stove.  Season rabbit with salt and pepper.  Once pan is hot, add rabbit pieces  and brown on all sides.  While rabbit is browning, place all other ingredients in slow cooker. Remove rabbit from pan and place in slow cooker, on top of cabbage.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for at least 4 hours.  Check to see if done.  Meat should easily come away from the bone.  If not tender enough, cook for an additional hour.   I typically cook mine for 5 hours. Serve rabbit pieces on top of cabbage.

Typically, I serve the leg, thigh, and shoulder pieces and reserve the meat from the back for use in another dish.  It really depends on how many mouths you have to feed.

Serves 4

Cook Time: 4 to 5 hours

I served my rabbit with a small bowl of Butternut Squash Soup.  Here is the recipe.

Cinnamon and Salt

Combine squash, leek, and broth in saucepan.  Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook until squash is easily mashed with fork.  Remove from heat.  Add coconut milk and salt.  Use immersion blender, or puree in blender until smooth.  If mixture is too thick, thin with coconut water. When you’ve reached desired consistency, return soup to heat.  Warm to desired temperature.   Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Serve.

Serves: 4

AIP Paleo Fish Tacos Recipe

AIP Paleo Fish Tacos

Since it’s Lent, we now eat fish every Friday.  Luckily for me, I grew up cooking seafood.  I’ve never run out of ways to cook all types of seafood.  But, then I started eating AIP paleo.  So many of the spices and ingredients I was used to cooking with, were no longer an option.  I headed into the kitchen and created a whole bunch of new AIP approved, paleo seafood dishes.  Now, if you’re allergic to seafood, I can’t help you much with these recipes.  But, if you’re not, and you love seafood, have at it!  I’m going to feature a new seafood recipe every week.  Hopefully, I’ll post it early enough on Friday, so you can make it for dinner, if you like.

And, for those of you who are not AIP, I put some changes of seasoning in the directions for you.  These are some different options for you.

AIP Paleo Fish Tacos

1 pound tilapia, cod, or other white fish

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil,Nature’s Way Coconut Oil, 32-Ouncefish tacos AIP Paleo Fish Tacos Recipe ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a B003OGKCDC

6 butter lettuce leaves

Chunky Guacamole

1 ripe avocado, cut in chunks

1teaspoon apple cider vinegar,Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Organic Raw — 16 fl oz Each / Pack of 2fish tacos AIP Paleo Fish Tacos Recipe ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a B00B7E2D9Y

1 teaspoon crushed garlic

½ small red onion, diced

½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, torn to pieces

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt to taste

I like to make my guacamole first to let it marinate for a while.  Usually, I’ll make it 10 minutes before I start cooking my fish. To make, put all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix together with a fork, mashing some of the avocado chunks, to make it creamier.  Be sure all ingredients are mixed well.  Place in fridge until ready to use.

Next, pour olive oil into large fry pan or skillet, place on burner on medium setting.  As pan is warming, sprinkle fish filets with oregano, parsley,  turmeric and salt on both sides.  If I wasn’t making these AIP, I would use chili powder, oregano and cumin instead.  Once pan is hot, place seasoned fish filets in pan.  Allow outside to sear.  About 2 to 3 minutes. Flip filet.  Sear other side. Turn heat down to low. Add green onion slices to pan. Continue cooking fish, flipping occasionally, until done.  This can take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your stove. Do not overcook.  Once fish starts flaking, it’s pretty much done. If using large filets, split each up into three servings.

Arrange butter lettuce leaves on serving dish.  Place serving of fish on each leaf.  You should have enough for 6 tacos.  Remove guacamole from fridge, and spoon over each fish taco. Serve.  Enjoy!
