Recipe of the day
|Food Mall: Ground Beef|
◦4 oz. mushrooms, sliced
◦3 T each FRESH rosemary, sage and thyme
◦1/4 c + 1/4 c chicken stock
◦1/2 head cauliflower, finely chopped
◦2 T oil
Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
In a deep-sided, oven safe saute pan add the ground beef and saute on medium heat until browned. Add the onions, garlic, carrots and mushrooms and cook until softened. Add 1/4 c chicken stock and use a spatula to pick up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Turn the heat off and toss in the chopped herbs along with some salt and pepper.
For the cauliflower, melt the oil over medium-high heat in another saute pan. Let the cauliflower caramelize (you want to see brown, don’t stop until that point!) use a spatula to turn it in the pan every once in awhile. Add some salt. Turn the heat off once the cauliflower is done.
In a small bowl, use a fork to whisk together the egg and 1/4 c chicken stock. Add the mixture to the cauliflower and working quickly, use a spatula to make sure it’s well combined. Immediately add it to the top of the meat mixture and press into an even layer with your spatula.
Bake in the oven, on the middle rack, for 10 minutes, then turn the oven on broil and cook for another 10 minutes. Once the “pie” has come out of the oven, let it rest a few minutes before serving.
