Here's an easy meal that epitomizes healthy eating! It's a phenomenally-tasting skillet dish that will level up your arsenal for kitchen throwdowns. Unfortunately, quicker, more accessible options like the drive-thru are the number one choice rather than cooking at home. But, if you invest some time and love, you can create a simple and delicious dish that will motivate and excite you to cook!
In about 30 minutes, you'll have a home filled with culinary aroma, and the family will gather to enjoy a tasty, hearty meal that gets you all one step closer to your fitness goals. Of course, the star player of this dish is the grass-fed arm chuck roast. The arm chuck roast is high in protein and fat. It's common to hear that foods rich in protein are good for you. However, fat is just as important.
In moderation, the fat is an excellent source of oleic acid, conjugated linoleic acid, and other fatty acids that support cholesterol levels, cognitive brain function, and a strong metabolism leading to fat burning. CLA and oleic acid also have anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting properties, fighting the growth of tumors. These fats can also help you digest fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E, and K.
What you need
2 lbs. of grass-fed arm chuck, diced
1 teaspoon organic grass-fed butter
1 teaspoon organic garlic, minced
1 organic yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon organic dried thyme
1 cup organic baby bella mushrooms
1 cup of organic beef broth
1 cup organic cabernet sauvignon
1/2 teaspoon organic sea salt
1/2 teaspoon organic freshly cracked pepper
What To Do
1. Grab a large skillet and place it over medium-high heat. Add a half teaspoon of grass-fed butter and two pounds of the diced grass-fed beef. Brown the beef on one side for five minutes. Then add another half teaspoon of grass-fed butter. Next, flip the beef to the opposite side and add the organic garlic, mushroom, and onion. Sauté for five minutes or until tender.
2. Add the organic cabernet sauvignon, thyme, and beef broth. Bring to a simmer. Then, cover the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for five minutes. Stir once, add the sea salt and freshly cracked pepper and cook over medium-high heat for fifteen minutes.
How To Serve
The beef is where it's at, folks! And there's only one way to serve it. This particular recipe deserves the best of sides to complement a hearty and healthy meal. So I served my grass-fed arm chuck roast over a bed of smoked applewood-bacon mashed potatoes and steamed vegetable medley with a pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Enjoy!
