Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

I love crock pot meals any time of year. In colder seasons slow cookers make the most comforting savory meals, and in warmer months they create lovely lighter meals without heating up the kitchen, plus they help with time management! And who doesn’t love prepping early and coming home to a beautiful, warm meal and a house that smells divine? No one, that’s who. When it comes to amazing crock pot meals, this slow Cooker Lemon Chicken with Rosemary ranks way up high on our list of family favorites

Making this Meal:

I made this meal with my Cuisinart Multicooker. It browns/sautés, steams and roasts! So instead of having to brown the chicken and sauté the veggies in a separate pan and transfer to the crock pot, I browned the chicken, sautéed the veggies, and slow cooked it all in the crock pot. Only one dish to clean! That said, if you have a regular crock pot you can certainly brown the chicken and onions in a pan and transfer to the slow cooker.

Only Three Steps: Dredge, Brown, Cook!

I followed one of the recipes in the  Cuisinart Multicooker cookbook…and by ‘follow’ I mean I changed it…because that’s how I roll. I added carrots and instead of using all thigh meat I added one chicken breast because my husband is a breast man (yep, I said that). I spent a little time prepping in the morning and six hours later I had a healthy dinner!

Make This Recipe Gluten or Grain Free:

To keep this recipe gluten free, simply dredge your chicken in your favorite gluten free flour, I recommend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour. To make this recipe Paleo/Whole30/grain free, I use cassava flour. No matter which you choose, this meal will be gorgeous, light, lemony and fall off the bone tender!

The Recipe: Slow Cooker Chicken with Rosemary and Carrots

You will need a  Cuisinart Multicooker  (or regular crock pan and a good quality pan, preferably cast iron for good browning) sea salt, freshly turned pepper and chicken broth (<—my recipe) To make this recipe gluten free I recoemmend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour. To make this recipe Paleo/Whole30/grain free, I use cassava flour or almond meal.

I adapted this recipe from the Cuisinart Multi Cooker Cookbook. If you are using a regular slow cooker you will need to brown the chicken and sauté the onions and garlic in a separate pan. Instructions for both included below.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: easy dinner recipe, slow cooker recipe, summer recipe
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 1 T olive oil, butter, ghee or coconut oil
  • 4 pounds bone in skin on chicken thighs (I always throw in a breast, you can even use a whole cut up chicken)
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite flour (Gluten free use GF flour, grain free peeps use garbanzo bean or cassava flour)
  • 3 large yellow onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 8 carrots, thinly sliced (1/8" thick)
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 springs fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 T lemon zest
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Trim chicken of extra fat, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and dredge in your choice of flour, set aside.

  2. Slice onions, carrots (carrots should be thin or they won't cook through, about 1/8") chop garlic, zest lemons, then squeeze lemon juice, set aside
  3. Put butter, ghee, coconut oil or olive oil in Multicooker and set to brown/sauté at 400 degrees (or place in a cast iron pan on medium high heat)
  4. Once the pan and fat are hot, add half the chicken skin side down and brown six minutes per side. Remove and repeat with second batch of chicken. Set all chicken on a plate.
  5. Add garlic and onions to crock pot (or pan) and sauté until softened and slightly browned (about 8 minutes)
  6. Add rosemary, a pinch of sea salt and a few turns of pepper.
  7. Add lemon juice, scraping brown bits from pan with wooden spoon or silicone spatula. Let juice come to a boil and reduce by half (about 2 minutes)
  8. Add broth and lemon zest, stir. (If using a traditional crock pot add all to veggies to crock pot now)
  9. Add sliced carrots, and nestle browned chicken on top, then lemon slices. Place lid on multicooker and set to slow cook on low for 6 hours.
  10. Serving suggestions: I love it as is but you can serve it with salad, steamed broccoli or over rice, barley, quinoa or couscous.

I felt like fairies came in and cooked for me while I went about my busy day! I hope you will try using your slow cooker this summer. It really does make life easier and more tasty!

A Romantic Valentine Menu for Two ~ Stuffed Chicken Breast and Raspberry Tartlets

 

Nothing says “Be Mine” like a romantic dinner for two. Why fight the crowds in restaurants, spend too much money, wait… twiddle your thumbs… and wait some more…even with a reservation, when you can make something like this yourself? This is The Organic Kitchen’s ‘Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken’ served atop roasted asparagus and drizzled with an herbed cream sauce.

The Meal:

This is such a simple meal, but it looks, tastes and feels extravagant! And just to make sure you don’t feel at all intimidated I will walk you through the process step by step!

Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts on Asparagus with Dill Cream Sauce #keto #glutenfree #stuffedchickenbreasts

Step 1: Make the Cutlets:

Simply cut chicken breasts in half, place between plastic or parchment and pound until about 1/4″ thick. Then generously season one side with salt and pepper.

…then roll, place seam side down and pop in the oven. That’s all there is to it!

While the chicken is baking, prepare the asparagus by brushing with olive oil and seasoning, then place next to the chicken the last ten minutes of baking.

The Cream Sauce:

The cream sauce is easy too! Just cream, a little flour (or arrowroot powder), lemon zest and fresh dill! Just decadent enough to be satisfying while light enough so you still feel like doing…other things…wink, wink.

To Serve:

You can either serve the whole breast atop the grilled asparagus or slice into pin wheels. Then drizzle with cream sauce to your heart’s content!

The Recipe: Stuffed Chicken Breast and Grilled Asparagus

You will need: a rimmed baking sheet (like this) unbleached parchment paper (like this) and a pastry brush (like this). Use a microplane to zest lemon. I love my battery operated pepper mill! It allows me to prep with one hand and leaves the other free to touch chicken without worrying about cross contamination.

A delicious romantic menu. Also delicious served this over white rice. If you wish to make this recipe gluten free, use your favorite gluten free flour to thicken sauce. If you wish to make grain free, use arrowroot to thicken sauce and follow special instructions below.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: date night, easy dinner recipe
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
For Chicken:
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded into 4 cutlets (see photos above)
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 8 oz soft goat cheese room temp (so it's soft and spreadable)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped spinach
Cream Sauce:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons flour ( or corn starch, arrow root powder, whatever thickener you choose. If using arrowroot powder see instructions below)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill chopped (pluse more for garnish if desired)
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Capers
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
Asparagus:
  • 1 large bunch asparagus
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in upper third of oven. Cover rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
Chicken Preparation
  1. Make cutlets by cutting breast in half width wise, placing between plastic or parchment paper and pounding with a rolling pin till chicken is about a 1/4 inch thick (see photos).
  2. Season one side lightly with sea salt and pepper.
  3. Turn seasoned side down and use a spatula to spread soft goat cheese on unseasoned side.
  4. If goat cheese does not spread easily, it's ok. The cheese will spread out as it cooks.
  5. Top with chopped spinach. Roll up chicken breast and stuffing and place seam side down on parchment covered rimmed cookie sheet.
  6. If you can, place all chicken to one side of cookie sheet leaving room to add asparagus the last ten minutes of cooking. Place in oven and cook for 35 minutes. If chicken breast are really large you may need to cook 5 minutes longer. While chicken cooks prepare cream sauce and asparagus.
Cream Sauce Preparation
  1. Place sauce pan on medium/high heat. Add butter, when melted, add flour or corn starch and whisk until smooth. Slowly add cream while whisking. When cream thickens a bit, turn off heat. (If using arrowroot powder: whisk together 2 teaspoons arrowroot powder in 2 tablespoons cream, set aside.  Heat  butter and cream in a sauce pan to a simmer. Turn off heat, add half cream/arrowroot mixture, whisk and allow to thicken. If needed add more, whisking a bit and allow to thicken)

  2.  Add a few turns of freshly ground pepper, a few pinches of sea salt, lemon zest and chopped dill. (To zest a lemon use a microplane and scrape the skin until the white underneath shows, then move to a new area)

  3. Add capers and reheat right before serving. If sauce thickens too much just add a little more cream to thin it out.
Asparagus Preparation
  1. Brush asparagus with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Add to cookie sheet with chicken the last 10 minutes of cooking or use separate parchment covered cookie sheet.
  2. Place asparagus on plate, top with chicken. You can either leave the breast whole or slice into pinwheels so the stuffing can be seen. Drizzle with cream sauce, garnish with remaining chopped dill and serve!

And for Dessert:

How about some Lemon Mascarpone Berry Tarts! (<–recipe)

Yummy spinach and goat cheese stuffed chicken with asparagus and cream sauce. So easy I'm trying this for dinner tonight! Adding the berry tartlets for dessert will take it over the top!

Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters! (Paleo-Whole30 option)

Have I mentioned that we are moving from Southern California to Gig Harbor Washington? As a lifelong Californian I truly have no idea what to expect. And in the last few months we have been making the most of the sunny Cali weather by taking weekend trips to many of our favorite local destinations, Ojai being one of them. Our favorite Ojai eatery, Azu, serves the most amazing Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters. I came up with my own version so we can enjoy a favorite breakfast after the move!
(This post contains affiliate links. I may make a commission off sales but your price remains the same.)

Farmhouse Zucchini Eggs Benedict! (Paleo-Whole30 option) #eggsbenedict #whole30eggsbenedict #paleo #whole30 #whole30breakfast

Ojai: Go If You Can!

We just love Ojai. It’s nestled in the mountains, just 20 minutes from the beaches of Santa Barbara and has a small town charm that is a mix of cowboy country and yoga retreats. The main street has the most charming shops, a gorgeous park, and truly fabulous food! We also love to visit Frog Creek Farm every summer for lavender cutting and the fresh produce.

Farmhouse Zucchini Eggs Benedict! (Paleo-Whole30 option) #eggsbenedict #whole30eggsbenedict #paleo #whole30 #whole30breakfast

 

This Breakfast: Options, Options, Options!

While the Farmhouse Eggs Benny at Azu is gluten free, it does have dairy and traditionally made Hollandaise Sauce. My version can be made with regular or gluten free flour, or can be made grain free by using cassava flour. Cassava flour is a miracle! It allows this recipe to fit the Paleo/Whole30 lifestyle while not compromising on taste or texture! And to make this recipe Keto friendly, use almond flour, just know it won’t bind quite as well as other flours.

Let’s Talk About Poached Eggs…

Poached eggs are very easy to make, but a few tips can really help. First, use really fresh pastured eggs (NOT pasteurized eggs…very different!) Second, use a small pot and add a little white vinegar to the water, this prevents your egg from getting slimy. Third, use the vortex method! Wait what??? The vortex? Don’t sweat it, I have a video tutorial that shows you step by step how to do it.

Farmhouse Zucchini Eggs Benedict! (Paleo-Whole30 option) #eggsbenedict #whole30eggsbenedict #paleo #whole30 #whole30breakfast

 

The 90 Second Blender Hollandaise Sauce:

Hollandaise sauce is usually made with butter, and you are certainly welcome to use a lovely grass fed butter in this recipe if you aren’t on Whole 30, but my W30 peeps will be happy to know my sauce is made with ghee, so it’s completely compliant, and honestly I think it’s just as delicious as when butter us used!

The Recipe: Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters! (Paleo-Whole30 option)

Tips and what you need:  I recommend a cast iron pan for this job. You will also need a food processor or box grater for grating zucchini. I use arrowroot powder for thickening to keep this recipe Paleo/W30. If you have no dietary restrictions you can use corn starch) Flour options include gluten free flour or to make this recipe Whole30/ Paleo I use cassava flour.

A fun, fresh take on traditional Eggs Benny this Farmhouse Eggs Benedict is served on Zucchini Fritters, has a touch of basil and offers Paleo-Whole30 and keto options! 

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: breakfast, eggs benedict, gluten free, keto, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Ingredients
For Fritters:
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated (makes about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons your favorite flour, I use cassava to keep this recipe W30 and Paleo (keto use almond flour)
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot powder (or cornstarch if you aren't Paleo?w30)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
For Hollandaise Sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup warm melted butter or ghee (use ghee if w30)
For Poached Eggs:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees (to keep fritters warm)

For fritters:
  1. Grate zucchini, place in colander. Sprinkle with sea salt and toss well. Place colander in sink and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  2. While zucchini rests, chop basil and measure out other ingredients

  3. After zucchini rests, place between paper towels and squeeze out excess moisture (or wring out in a clean dish towel) The more moisture you eliminate the crispier your fritter will be, you may need to do this several times with fresh paper towels.

  4. Place zucchini in a large bowl.

    Add egg, your choice of flour, arrowroot or cornstarch, pepper, and half the basil (reserving the rest for garnish). Mix well.

  5. Heat an oven safe pan on high heat. Add olive oil, coat pan evenly . When oil is very hot turn heat to medium. Use a measuring cup to add 1/3 cup zucchini mixture to the pan. Use the bottom of the cup to press the mixture into a patty about a 3/4 inch thick

  6. Cook until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes) gently turn patties over, and cook the second side until golden brown (another 3 minutes or so) place pan in oven to keep warm while you poach eggs and make sauce

For Eggs and Sauce:
  1. I recommend watching the video linked above for a quick egg poaching tutorial.

  2. Set a small pot of water with 1 tablspoon white vinegar to boil. Crack three eggs into three small dishes

  3. When water in pot is boiling, use one hand to hold the egg dish and use a spoon in the other hand to stir water quickly, forming a 'vortex'. While water is vigorously spinning drop egg gently right into the center of the vortex, then very quickly add the next two eggs. (I usually recommend poaching no more than two eggs at a time, but since we are doing three I say go for it:)

  4. Cook eggs 2 1/2 -5 minutes: 2 1/2 minutes makes for a runny yolk, five minutes cooks them all the way through. I recommend runny of course

  5. While eggs cook, make 90 second Hollandaise sauce:

  6. Melt ghee (or butter) in a small pan until very warm but not simmering and set aside. While ghee melts add add yolks, lemon juice, dijon and spices to blender

  7. Blend for 30 seconds, then slowly drizzle in melted ghee (or butter) and blend for 30-60 more seconds. It should thicken immediately

  8. When eggs are done to your liking use a slotted spoon or fish spatula to remove them from water and set on a paper towel.

  9. Place eggs on zucchini fritters, pour Hollandaise sauce over eggs, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, garnish with remaining basil. Serve!

One Pan Braised Chicken and Vegetables

We spent this week cozied up in our little cabin in Sundance, Utah. The snow was halfway up the house and the temperatures hovered right around 20 degrees. These circumstances call for for some healthy comfort food, for sure, and what’s more comforting than One Pan Braised Chicken and Vegetables?
(This post contains affiliate links. I may make a commission off sales but your price remains the same.)

Let’s Talk About Braising…

Braising is a cooking method that uses both wet and dry heats: typically, the food is first sautéed or seared at a high temperature, then finished in a covered pot or pan at a lower temperature while simmering in liquid. Braising gives you the best of both worlds, beautifully browned meat and veggies that are also tender and flavorful from being simmered in broth and wine which forms a beautiful sauce!

Making This Recipe Gluten or Grain Free:

This recipe does call for 2 teaspoons flour. To make this recipe gluten free, use your favorite gluten free flour. I recommend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour for GF cooking. To make this recipe grain free, I use cassava flour. It works very well!

Fancier Than Your Usual Meat and Potato Meal…

I love the idea of serving this elegant meat and potato meal for colder weather dinner parties. Just keep in mind that when it comes to braising you shouldn’t go “too big”. Instead of doubling or tripling this recipe and cooking in a really large pan, I like to make 2-3 recipes at the same time but in 2-3 separate pans. It just seems to work out better, at least for me.

The Recipe: One Pan Braised Chicken and Vegetables

Tips and what you need: I make this braised chicken in a 12″ cast iron skillet with lid, but you can also use a Dutch oven. As always you need a good knife. To make this recipe gluten free, I recommend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour.. To make this recipe grain free, I use cassava flour.

  3. Peel and cut onion, potatoes and carrots. When chicken is golden but not cooked through, set on a plate and set aside. 

  4. If needed add more oil to pan, turn heat to medium, add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add potatoes and carrots. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently for 10-12 minutes, until veggies begin to soften and edges turn golden. 

  5. Add flour and stir for one minute. Then add wine, broth and chicken. Turn heat up and bring to a simmer. 

  6. Once simmering, turn heat down (low but still simmering), cover and cook for 10-12 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and veggies are soft enough to easily poke with a fork but still a little firm. While chicken is cooking, prepare thyme and parsley. 

  7. Add thyme to pan a few minutes before chicken is done.

  8. remove from heat, garnish with parsley, serve.

Low carb comfort food that is Paleo/Keto and Whole30 compliant. Instead of cornstarch you will be using arrowroot and non dairy yogurt to thicken your gravy.

Course: dinner
Keyword: cauliflower puree, gravy, keto, meatballs, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 8 cups cauliflower, stem removed and broken into florets
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (for thickening gravy)
  • 4 tablespoons non dairy plain yogurt (I use cashew or coconut yogurt)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. For Cauliflower

  2. Wash cauliflower, cut off stem and break into florets, steam until soft. When cauliflower is soft. Place half the cooked cauliflower into a food processor with 1 tablespoon ghee (or butter) and a couple pinches of sea salt and black pepper, blend until smooth (you can also use a potato masher and do it by hand) Repeat with second batch.

  3. While cauliflower is steaming, make meatballs

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place ground turkey, egg, and almond meal in a bowl, work with hands until well blended. Add spices, 2 tablespoons chives and two generous pinches sea salt and black pepper, work with hands until mixed well

  5. Using wet hands form into 1 1/2" meatballs 

  6. In a large pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes total. Turn off heat (do not clean the pan) Transfer to oven safe baking dish and place in oven for 5 minutes (or until cooked through)

  7. Place 2 tablespoon swarm water in a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder and whisk until smooth (this is called a slurry and will thicken your gravy). Set aside. 

  8. Return the pan used for the meatballs to high heat: Whisk in the chicken stock scraping browned bits off bottom of pan, bring broth to a boil. Once you have achieved a boil, turn off heat. Add the slurry, whisking vigorously. Return to low heat, allow 2 to 3 minutes for gravy to thicken (do not allow to boil. When gravy is desired consistency gradually add the non-dairy yogurt,  1 tablespoon at a time, whisking between additions until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. When the meatballs are cooked through, remove from oven and place in gravy pan.

  9. Place pureed cauliflower on plates, top with meatballs and gravy, garnish with remaining chives (If desired, drizzle some melted ghee over potatoes)

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

I have decided to save America’s livers, one “mocktail” at a time. That’s right, you can enjoy your holiday parties, wake up the next morning feeling great and look festive while doing it thanks to this Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer!

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

Let’s Muddle Things Up!

This drink is a favorite anytime we want something a little more celebratory than plain old water. To make it you’ll need a muddle. A muddle is a bartenders tool used to crush ingredients, in this case, limes.

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

SIMPLE SYRUP OR NATURALLY SUGAR FREE STEVIA OPTION:

You can sweeten this drink with a simple syrup made ahead of time, or with liquid Stevia drops. It’s fantastically delicious both ways!

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

The Recipe: Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

Tips and what you’ll need: When we serve this for parties we set out lime wedges and lime halves, a hand held juicer, a muddle, simple syrup and Stevia drops along with a recipe card with instructions so our guests can make their own spritzer. I prefer to use Pellegrino sparkling water because of it’s alkaline ph balance. Find my Lemon Basil Spritzer here.

A simple mocktail with a simple syrup or low carb stevia sweetened option. If making the simple syrup, be sure to make it at least an hour ahead of time so it has time to cool and then refrigerate. When having a party, we set out all the prepped ingredients with a recipe card so guests can make their own spritzers.

Servings: 1 erving

  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 cup ice cold sparkling water (I like Pellegrino)
  • ice
Instructions
  1. If using simple syrup, make ahead of time and allow to cool: place water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil, lower and simmer for 6 minutes. Allow to cool. If using liquid stevia, skip this step

  2.  To make drink: place 2 lime wedges in bottom of glass, muddle (this means smash with your muddling tool)

  3. Add lime juice, pomegranate juice and either simple syrup or stevia drops, and muddle more. Then pour sparkling water into glass.

  4. If desired, add ice,  pomegranate seeds or an additional lime wedge to edge of glass. Serve.

This Dish:

Probably one of the most popular BBQ meats, bulgogi is a traditional Korean dish known for it’s addictive sweet and salty combo. The trick is to slice the meat paper thin so it can soak up as much delicious marinade as possible. You can probably find these meats pre-sliced at your local Korean grocery store, but if not you can easily do this at home with a simple trick of freezing the meat for 30 minutes before slicing.

Paleo Korean BBQ Beef (Bulgogi)

Probably one of the most popular barbecue meats, bulgogi is a traditional Korean dish known for its addictive sweet and salty combo. The trick is to slice the meat paper thin so it can soak up as much of the delicious marinade as possible. You can probably find these meats pre-sliced at a local Korean grocery store, but if not, you can easily do this at home with the simple trick of freezing the meat slightly first. 

Course: dinner
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Jean Choi
Ingredients
  • 1 pound top sirloin, (or any other tender cuts that are well marbled)
  • Marinade
  • 6 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1/2 medium pear (preferably Korean pear) cut into chunks
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1" fresh ginger, peeled
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium white onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced into 1" pieces
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon favorite cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, for serving
  • green or red leaf lettuce for wraps
Instructions
  1. Place the beef in the freezer for 30 minutes, then take it out and slice it thinly, about 1⁄16 to 1⁄8 inch (1 to 3 mm) thick.

  2. Place the coconut aminos, pear, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, apple cider vinegar and black pepper in a high-powered blender. Blend well until liquified.

  3. Combine the sliced beef and the marinade in a large bowl. Toss and massage together with your hand until all the beef slices are covered in the marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight.

  4. When you are ready to cook the beef, remove it from the marinade, shaking off the excess drippings. Slice the onion, green onions and carrot, and combine the vegetables with the meat.

  5. Heat the cooking oil over high heat in a large skillet. Working in batches so you don’t overcrowd the pan, add the beef and vegetables and stir-fry together until the meat is browned and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.

  6. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before serving. You can eat Bulgogi on its own or in a lettuce wrap.
