Beef and turnips

Aug

I needed some lunch today, so checked the cupboards…tinned steak. Checked the fridge…hmm, not much…turnip!

image

Melted some butter (ended up using about twice what was there)

image

Peeled and diced half a large turnip (about 200g, apparently)

image

Got the turnip softening (slightly browned on a few bits) in the butter and threw in 1 clove of garlic, chopped and mashed (not pictured)

The beef was hardly grass-fed wonderfulness, and was in a gravy that is not very paleo but isn’t /that/ bad.

image

I rinsed most of the gravy off in a colander, under the hot tap, and threw it in on top of the now-softened turnip.

image

And added enough chicken broth to cover it all. Nice, collagen-rich broth:

and simmered it for a little while.

Tasty and satisfying, and while hardly the ideal (only due to the quality of the meat and what it was canned with), not all that bad either.
