February can be a tough month- the holidays are over, but Winter is still here! I embrace Valentine's Day as a way to focus on all the love that surrounds us! The kitchen is a great place to show your love- make a special meal for your loved ones; bake a sweet treat to share with others (or eat it by yourself and call it self-love...I'm not here to judge!); or simply gather around the table and talk.
Below is one of my MOST FAVORITE recipes- Italian Beef! It is my way to share some love with you!
Eat Well and Be Well,
11/2 pound eye round roast (or rump)
4 C beef broth
3 cloves garlic, minced
1t red pepper flake
1t salt (or omit)
1t black pepper
1t onion powder
Trim any fat from roast and cut into thin slices. Placing beef in freezer for about 20 minutes will make cutting easier. Place all other ingredients into a large heavy pot and slow simmer beef in au jus for about 25-30 minutes. Serve on hard crusty rolls and with a side of the au jus to dip. I also like to saute bell peppers to top sandwiches.
Table Talk-a focus on LOVE:
- What do you love about yourself?
- What do you love about our family?
- How can you show love for others?
- How can you show love for our community?
