I always love my job. But like most people I love my job more on some days than others. For instance, days when I get to make and eat Grass Fed Top Sirloin with Caramelized Shallots and a White Wine Reduction! (I include a Whole 30 option as well.)

You know what else I love?
Grass fed beef delivered to my door from ButcherBox .
I know beef companies proudly tout “corn fed” like it’s a good thing, but it’s not. Corn is not a cow’s natural food, grass is. Corn and other grains make cows sick and when they get sick they are pumped with antibiotics, which are passed right along to you. In fact, conventional grain-fed beef is twice as likely to contain dangerous bacteria resistant to antibiotics than grass fed beef. No bueno.
Grass fed cows make superior meat too. Yep, it tastes better and is better for you. The meat from grass fed cows is higher in the healthy omega 3 fats and lower in the inflammation causing omega 6 fats. And it’s nice to know these cows live a better life than those that live in overcrowded feedlots.
ButcherBox delivers grass fed beef right to your doorstep!
Unfortunately grass fed beef has not been accessible to everyone, everywhere. But that has changed! ButcherBox is revolutionizing the grass fed beef industry by delivering humanely raised, all natural, grass fed beef right to doorsteps monthly. My delivery came last Friday.
And on Saturday evening we were eating this!
What Comes in a ButcherBox?
Every box has carefully prepared cuts of all natural, 100% grass fed beef sourced from the best farms. There’s enough sustainably raised meat in each box for 15 – 20 meals based on 6 – 8oz portions. Each box also comes with recipe cards…you will be seeing my face and recipes in some of their boxes!
The meat comes individually wrapped, just place the boxes in your freezer and remove when ready to thaw. Then enjoy a wonderful meal!
The Recipe: Top Sirloin Steak with Caramelized Shallots and White Wine Reduction
- olive oil butter or ghee
- 2 top sirloin steaks
- sea salt
- freshly ground pepper
- 3 large shallots peeled and sliced
- 1 large clove garlic peeled and minced
- 6 oz crimini mushrooms thinly sliced (don't wash, if needed brush clean with a mushroom brush)
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup white wine if Whole 30, use white grape juice
- 1 Tablespoon chopped chives for garnish
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and place rack in center of oven.
Prep all ingredients so they are ready to go when needed.
Sprinkle both sides of steak with sea salt and pepper.
Place cast iron skillet or other heavy pan on medium/high heat and allow to heat for several minutes.
When pan is hot add enough olive oil, butter or ghee to generously coat bottom of pan.
When oil or butter are hot add meat to pan. You should hear the PSHHHHHH sound when meat is placed in pan.
Add 2 tablespoons butter to hot steak pan, add shallots and turn heat down to medium.
Sauté, stirring frequently for three minutes, loosening any browned bits from the pan with spatula or spoon.
Add mushrooms and garlic, stirring until mushrooms release most of their juices (usually around five minutes (steaks should be out of the oven by now for medium rare)
Carefully add white wine (or white grape juice) to pan and sauté for 1 more minute, stirring. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and pepper.
Top steaks with shallots, mushrooms and white wine reduction. Garnish with chives. Serve.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! ~ Linda Spiker
