When I was a vegetarian, I read a cookbook by Nigella Lawson & was perplexed by her admission that sometimes she just needed to curl up & eat a big comforting bowl of ground meat.

Ground meat as comfort food.

I didn't get it back then, as my comfort foods were all conveniently-packaged starches. They went straight from the grocery store shelf & into my mouth.

Wrecking my microbiome as they moved through my digestive system, causing depression & anxiety (which then provoked more starches).

Ground meat as comfort food.

Now I get it.

But this recipe isn't just a bowl full of meat.

It's a bowl full of meat with flair.

But it's still comforting in exactly the way Nigella described.

One of the hallmarks of comfort food (at least if you have to make it for yourself) is ease. Rapidity is another.

From ingredients to fragrant steaming bowl of comfort, it needs to happen quick.

And it needs to be familiar.

Comfort-food-time is not the moment to start sourcing ground wild water buffalo or cricket flour.

Just some happily pastured ground beef. Classically presented. With broccoli.

And one homey-exotic twist: a peach.

So your comfort isn't mundane.

It's elevated. A bowl full of meat that's full of comfort, exultation and well-being~.

Peach-Glazed Beef & Broccoli

Servings: 2-4

print

Time: 45

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons lard, tallow or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon Himalyan Salt (or similar)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon dried Basil
  • 4 heaping cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1 ripe Peach
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
  • 1 cup Water (or warm bone broth)

Method:

Cut the Broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Trim the stalks before chopping them, if they’re tough.

Melt the fat and fry the Beef in a skillet on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, halve the Peach, and puree one half with the Coconut Aminos and Water (or substitute warm bone broth) in a food processor.

When the Beef is no longer pink, turn the heat up slightly, add the chopped Broccoli and pour the Peach puree over top. Stir to combine.

Don’t be alarmed if it looks like you might be making hamburger soup. You aren’t.

Leave the skillet uncovered and stir occasionally as the liquid reduces.

Meanwhile, dice the remaining half Peach.

When the Broccoli is al dente,  serve in bowls, garnished with diced Peaches.
