Beef Stock

Beef StockGet a beef stock pack. I buy mine from Burgundy Pasture Beef. This is the foundation for many dishes, such as the Carne Guisado, which follows, and Beouf Bourgignon.

Carne Guisado

Southern meal that is ideal for cooler days. Coming before September ends!

Rack of Lamb with Herbed Dijon Mustard

Rack LambOh yum! This delectable dish is normally pretty expensive. But when you buy the whole lamb, it's a very economical treat. This lamb comes from Prairie Oasis Farm and it was tender, flavorful and juicy. Cook to medium rare at most for best results. If you don't know how to "French" the rack, go to youtube and search it. There are a few demonstrations that will help you. And with the extra bits of meat that are stripped away, place in a food processor with a clove of garlic and 2 scallions and mince. Add mayo, Dijon mustard and a spoonful of sauerkraut, and you have a delicious carpaccio lunch!

Other Cultured Veggies
