Buffalo, Broccoli and Bacon Dinner, Peach Ice Cream Dessert!

Quick post on last nights Sunday Dinner.
I am leaning towards Paleo these days.. listening to tons of Robb Wolf podcasts and his book in on it's way!

I found this recipe on Jen's Gone Paleo blog!

I only had a bison roast, not a strip steak, so it ended up really rare.. but so tasty that Sam and Daddy just chowed down. I served them ginger Kombucha from High Country on ice, they loved that too. Gotta be a tad sneaky with those too... anything 'too healthy' makes them get all weird on me.
I like this diluted with water.

How do you make the Triple B Dinner?
*Preheat the oven to 415 degrees *
 Use about a 1 lb bison steak(lightly salt and pepper each side) , 2-3 strips of uncured bacon (cut into 2 " pieces), grab an oven proof pan and your choice of veggies. I used broccoli (about one head of florets), asparagus would be good too.
Brown the bacon, then sear the bison for about 2 minutes each side. 
Then pop the whole deal into your preheated oven.
Let it bake for about 5-7 minutes ( I doubled this and it was still mostly rare, mine was really thick)
Remove from oven, put the bison on a plate, then add your veg to the pan and put back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes, with the bacon still in the pan.
Remove the pan and then take the broccoli off, sear the bison one more time and VIOLA'!

Dinner is Served!

This fed the three of us, with about 1/3 of the rawish bison leftover.

Even though this was satisfying to me, I knew that Daddy would be sneaking Sam off to the ice cream shop if I did not whip up some good sweet stuff.

So I put about one cup of frozen peaches, white and  yellow varieties, about 2 frozen bananas and a tablespoon of my newest secret ingredient: Nutiva Coconut Manna. It's made from the whole coconut and it is TASTY!
Blend that all up in the Vitamix, you get a creamy, tasty, kind of peachy keen ice cream!

They loved it and Baskin Robbins was foiled again. 
Yeah for the Real Food Team!

Hope you try this at home, it is super easy and awesome!
Thanks to Jen!
I hope to keep us as paleo as possible, working on it..
This mornings breakfast for me:
2 pastured eggs, scrambled with baby spinach, topped with Trader Joes Roasted Salsa, yum!

with love 


  1. You go girlie! When can I come over for dinner?! :)

  2. Heather, You are always welcome here! I wish you did live here, boy could we get into some fun/trouble!

  3. I love bison! I can only get it ground here, but I loved when I have had it as a roast! Gotta love the vitamix too!

  4. Hey Jenn! Good to see you here! Yes, my co op gets it from Northstar Bison, it super fresh, never frozen and very lean. W/O the bacon this would have needed coconut oil to make it not burn to a crisp!
    Yes, the vitamix is a miracle maker.
    More soon!

  5. Deb,
    Was it hard to go from vegan to eating meat again? I've been vegetarian for a few years (never made it to vegan)and I have gained a ton of weight and feel tired. I know from the past that when I ate a high protein/low carb diet, I felt great. After not eating a dead animal (sorry, but that's what I keep thinking about) for such a long time, I can't imagine doing it again. But I know I'd feel better. Just wondering what your experience has been.

  6. Hi Gail!
    It was a bit scary at first.. so go easy! I added raw colostrum, then raw kefir, a few eggs....I felt better and better. Now I am really balanced between my veg, fats and mostly fish/eggs/bison, not much fruit and more cooked items like yams.
    So far so good!

  7. I absolutely LOVE High Country kombucha! When it's on sale at 2 for $5.00, I stock up.


What Say You? :-)
