Creamy Roasted Cabbage with Bacon & Beef

Ingredients
  • 1 lb cabbage (about ½ a large cabbage), chopped into 1” cubes
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 10 cracks black pepper
  • 1 onion, cubed
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon, sliced into bits
  • lb lb beef (any kind of grilling beef works well – you could even use stir fry strips), in 1 “ cubes
  • 2 tsp garlic granules
  • 1 c fresh grated Parmesan, divided
  • 1 c whip cream
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Set the oven to 395° and line a baking sheet with parchment.

Place the cubed cabbage into a bowl with the salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, toss well, then turn the cabbage onto the baking sheet in a single layer and pop it into the oven for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Once the cabbage is in the oven, crispify the bacon bits in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Don’t incinerate it, just cook until crispy. When the bacon is crisp remove it to a plate and add the onion to the pan and sauté until translucent, then add the beef cubes along with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and bring the heat up to medium high. Sear the beef on all sides to golden brown then turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 3

Pour the whip cream into a bowl with the 3/4 of the grated Parmesan and the garlic granules. Mix well and set aside.

Use a pastry brush to grease an 8″ x 11″ (or there about) baking dish with olive oil and set aside.

Step 4

 When the cabbage is done in the oven lower the heat to 350° and scoop the cabbage into a large bowl along with the beef, onions, and bacon. Mix well then transfer to the baking dish. Pour the cream mixture overtop, sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and pop it into the oven for 30 – 35 minutes, until the cheese is golden then remove from the oven, sprinkle with paprika, chili flakes, and parsley and let it rest 5 minutes before serving.

Step 5

Serve into shallow bowls, top with a little more fresh Parmesan, and enjoy the rich, creamy, deliciousness that you have created for dinner!

Lemon Dill Baked Salmon with Garlic Roasted Veggies

Ingredients
  • 1 large filet of salmon (enough for 4 servings)
  • ¼ c olive oil (or melted butter)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 10 cracks fresh black pepper
  • 2 or 3 tsp fresh dill (dry is fine too, but fresh is nicer!)
  • 1 lemon, half sliced into thin wheels,
    the other half quartered
  • 2 medium celery root, peeled and cubed
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb, cubed
  • 1 red onion, cubed
  • 1 leek (including the green top!), sliced
  • 1 small delicata squash, seeded and sliced (if they are not available, substitute a medium zucchini)
  • ½ c cashews (raw)
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 c fresh salad greens

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Heat oven to 395°.

Prepare celery root, peppers, fennel, onion, leek, and delicata as noted above and place them in a large bowl with the cashews. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic granules and mix well then pour onto a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer and pop them into the oven and set a timer for 25 minutes.

Step 2

Place salmon on another parchment lined baking sheet and ensure that the parchment is large enough to fold around the fish like an envelope.

 In a small bowl mix olive oil with dill, salt, and pepper then use a pastry brush to spread the mixture over the salmon filet. Place lemon wheels on top of the fish and wrap the parchment around the fish securing it with a metal clip, then set aside.

 Step 3

When the timer goes off for the veggies reduce the heat in the oven to 350° and pop the salmon into the oven alongside the sheet of veggies and bake for 20 minutes.

When everything is done slice the salmon into 4 pieces and serve along with a wedge of lemon to each of 4 plates. Add about 1/2 c of salad greens to each plate and top the bed of greens with a serving of roasted veggies. Now sit down and enjoy the beautiful flavors of this satisfying dinner!
