Go LOCO for COCOnut Oil

Lately, I've started replacing Olive Oil to Coconut Oil for my cooking.

Did you know adding coconut oil to your diet daily can boost your immune system? Also get your metabolism going?

Get a little saucy this weekend!

I LOVE covering a piece of meat (or even veggies) with this extremely tasty sauce.  If there is any leftover then freeze it for your meal!

Here is the simple recipe:

THINGS YOU NEED:

1lb sirlion beef steak

1 can diced tomatoes (14.5oz/410g)

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon brown sugar 

1 cup water (for the curry sauce)

1 handful fresh cilantro

 

FROM THE SPICE BOX:

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

2 tablespoons ground cumin & coriander

1 teaspoon garam masala

½  teaspoon chili powder*

*Note: if you prefer a hotter spice level increase the 

amount of chili powder by ¼ teaspoon increments to 

suit your taste.  Be cautious!

 

ESSENTIAL PREPARATION:

  • Blend the can of diced tomatoes in a food processor so it’s totally smooth
  • Peel and chop the ginger as finely as possible
  • Lightly chop the cilantro
  • Prepare everything else from the Things You Need section so that all ingredients are at hand and you are ready to cook 

 

COOKING GUIDE:

  1. Heat the oil in the sauté pan so it’s hot then add the cumin seeds and let it cook for 30 seconds.  Then turn down the heat to low.
  2. Very carefully add the blended tomatoes (as they can spit), salt, ginger, brown sugar, water, cilantro, ground cumin & coriander, garam masala and chili powder.  Stir well and simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes with the lid on.
  3. Meanwhile, BBQ/roast your meat/veggies, to your liking.  Once cooked thinly slice the steak and place them on individual plates and pour the sauce on top.
  4. Serve.
  5. Suggested serving accompaniments include salad, quinoa or cous cous and non-gluten free options such as naan or pita bread.

 

Serves: 4

Spice Level: Mild

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ideal cooking pan: 5qt sauté pan with lid and BBQ
