Tonight for dinner I decided to make one of my all time favorites. Fire Broth. This is a dish my wife has been making me for years, since long before we became Paleo. She picked up the original recipe from The Art of Doing Stuff. It’s a really great article you should check it out.
You can make this in a crockpot if you have a really big crockpot. But this is a pretty massive recipe so I usually make it in a pot on the stove. Of course, you could also just make less soup.
The recipe I made tonight isn’t exactly like the one in that article. I used,
1 pound grass fed organic ground beef
1 pound italian pork sausage
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
2 anaheim peppers
1 jalapeno pepper
1 red onion
1 sweet potato
1 cup baby portobello mushrooms
3 tablespoons of pickled banana pepper rings
1 yellow squash
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 can of rotel
1 can of diced tomatoes and sweet onions
1 can of beef broth
1/2 of a box of chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
crushed red pepper
Like so many of these recipes, you can pretty much use whatever’s in your fridge. I put a rustic chop on all the veg and dumped it in the pot with the broth. Then I sliced up the sausage and browned it with the beef. I tossed that in the seasoning for a few minutes and then added it all to the rest of the soup. Boom. Fire Broth.
This recipe is fantastic. It’s spicier, so be forewarned. I mean, it is called Fire Broth after all. But it tastes fantastic. And it makes tons and tons of food, so unless you’re feeding an army you’ll have several meals from this one dish. Several delicious meals.
Give it a try. This is another dish that’s super decadent and fatty and oily but is filled with nutrient dense foods and is actually fantastic for you. I’ve lost weight over-eating this dish. Which is easy to do. The over-eating I mean. It really does taste great.
Yes. There’s some prep involved. You could use frozen veg to cut down on some of it, but it’s gonna require a little grocery shopping and cooking time from you. It’s worth it. Do it. The results will blow your mind.
