Primal Bison Stew

Here in the Northeast, it's cold and raw today. Looks like March is coming in like a lion...king. (never mind our snow day last Monday!) What else is there to do in this cold weather but make stew? Aaahhh, but what kind...something Primal, something hearty, something the kids will eat (3 veggies max), something kosher ('cause we are)--looks like Bison stew!!

Bison has a superior nutritional profile to beef: bison is lower in fat, lower in calories, and higher in iron and B vitamins; and it is a "greener" choice.


Here's the recipe I threw together:

--saute a sliced onion in evoo

--add carrots, peeled garlic cloves, garlic powder, onion powder, dried minced onion, cumin, the juice of one tangelo (or orange), and a half cup of primally-friendly spaghetti sauce ( no added sugar, corn syrup, or other junk)

--mix in bison chunks, add just enough water to cover, and cook at 350 degrees in a covered oven-safe pot 2 hours till tender (add more water halfway through if it's needed)


Add a primal-friendly grain for those who can indulge, salad, a green vegetable, and dinner is served.
