Before I get into the recipe, I’d like to share some exciting news with you.  As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been promoting Bill Kurtis’ Tallgrass beef over the last couple of weeks.  I discovered this wonderful product while covering the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo.  Well, long story, short version, I received a call from Mr. Bill Kurtis’ office, granting me a video interview, discussing Tallgrass beef.

Yesterday, I met with Mr. Bill Kurtis.  He did, indeed, grant me a 30 minute video interview.  I think you’re going to love it!  I mean, it’s Bill Kurtis! What’s not to love?

Tallgrass beef Review and Paleo Cajun Lady’s Weenie Spaghetti Recipe

Tallgrass beef grass fed franks

As many of you know, after reading my post chronicling my first day at the GFAF Expo, I had a difficult time finding paleo friendly foods to sample. The only vendor booth to provide me with any nourishment was the Tallgrass beef Company. I was extremely grateful for the juicy, flavorful slices of grass fed, grass finished hot dog franks they provided. Now, it wasn’t just because I was starving that I frequented their booth. Their story intrigued me. The taste kept me going back for more.

Tallgrass beef Company was founded by Bill Kurtis (yes, the Bill Kurtis). You probably know him as an accomplished journalist, and for his voice. Did you know he is also a rancher and conservationist? Well, he is. He founded Tallgrass beef to bring the highest quality, grass fed beef home to you and your family. What better way to introduce families to healthy, nutrient rich, grass fed beef than to make it into a hot dog frank?
Most hot dog franks are filled with preservatives, animal pieces/parts of unknown origin, fillers, and artificial coloring. Even some grass fed beef franks include the ingredient carrageenan. In case you’ve never heard of it, Carrageenan is a known gut irritant. It is actually used in some lab testing to induce vomiting in test subjects. Yea, I really don’t want that in my hot dog frank.
Tallgrass beef franks contain no growth hormones or antibiotics. Because their beef is grass finished, they contain no gluten and NO GMOs. They contain no preservatives, nitrites or nitrates. Plus, their cattle are raised humanely, in the USA.
I guess the mustard on the hotdog for me was the fact that their beef was grass finished. Those of us who eat a paleo diet know the importance of grass finished beef. When cattle are grass finished, we don’t have to worry about our diets being contaminated by soy, corn, or other grains used in feeding. We can rest comfortably, knowing we are getting the most nutrient dense product for our money.
Now, I know all this information is great and everything; but, the taste is what kept me running back to the booth for more. Tallgrass beef hot dog franks were the plumpest, tastiest, grass fed franks I’ve ever tasted. For you fellow foodies out there, the bite and chew was nice and firm. I think the ratio of spices is perfect. You get the full flavor of the grass fed beef in every bite. It’s quite delightful.
So, what does Paleo Cajun Lady do when she finds an ingredient she likes? She creates recipes, using that ingredient. I have created three distinct recipes utilizing Tallgrass beef franks as the main ingredient. The first is a Cajun classic, Paleo Cajun Lady’s Weenie Spaghetti. It’s a flavorful sauce that combines the meatiness of the franks, the acidity of tomatoes, and the saltiness of green olives. I know it sounds like a weird combination; but, I assure you, it’s delicious.

Baked Spaghetti Squash

                                        Baked Spaghetti Squash
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Split squash in half, lengthwise. Scoop out pulp and seeds. Place squash, rind side up, on baking sheet. Sprinkle a small amount of water (about 3 Tbs. in total) on either side and between the two sides of squash. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and flip squash over to cool. Once cool enough to handle, slide fork tines over squash, in a continuous top to bottom motion, to create noodles. Discard rind.
I’ll release the other two recipes in later posts. I think you’ll enjoy the diversity each dish offers. Of course, you could use the franks to make your favorite hot dogs. But, a girl can’t live on hot dogs alone. Now, you can turn these delicious Tallgrass beef franks into different meals your family will enjoy.
You can find Tallgrass beef franks and other cuts of beef online and through some grocery stores. To ensure your local grocer sells Tallgrass beef, send them an email, requesting they carry the products. May 1, 2014 through July 1, 2014, Tallgrass beef is offering a free pack of hot dog franks with an online purchase of $100 or more. Order here.

I hope you enjoy your Tallgrass beef franks! It’s very exciting to introduce the paleo community to a new option for purchasing grass fed, grass finished beef. As our community grows, we need to ensure our grocers offer the foods we rely upon. We can work together to spread the word about companies like Tallgrass beef to make them accessible to all of us.
