Locavore90 Meal Plan: Beef Stroganoff

As of today we’re on track with the Locavore90 June Meal Plan! Today’s meal was Beef Stroganoff. Ours was made with locally-raised, natural beef from Comstock Limousin Freezer Beef (Jack and Selma Comstock) in Mendon, MI. I also used the breadcrumbs I talked about creating in this post. It was sooo yummy!

Creamy sauce (we used plain yogurt rather than sour cream).

The kid version. Could be served with a little ketchup... our guys actually liked it with the creamy sauce!

Sourdough Bread for Gluten Intolerance?

SAMSUNG

Last week I shared that I brought home two large boxes of frozen grass-fed beef only to find that our second freezer wasn’t working. Our best guess – thanks to input from a friend and reader – is that the garage freezer stopped working because it is attached to a refrigerator which also stops working when the temperature outside is colder than the temperature inside the appliance. We expect it to start working again once the weather warms up. I wasn’t about to let hundreds of dollars of meat go to waste so I got busy clearing space in the kitchen freezer. (Our neighbor graciously offered to store half of the beef.)

My kitchen adventures that day included dehydrating veggies, toasting hot dog buns into breadcrumbs and stumbling upon a sourdough starter lingering in the back of the fridge. The starter had been there since September… obviously I forgot about it. No worries though – the flavor of sourdough just gets better with age.
