I seriously am loving all the food we’ve been eating on the Omni Drops Program. Last night we had Beef Bourguignon and it was rich and so full of delicious flavor. This traditional french meal is usually made with pearl onions and mushrooms but this time around I by-passed the onions. You could definitely add them if you were on phase 3 of the program.
4oz beef, cubed
1 cup beef broth or water
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1 clove garlic crushed and sliced
Pinch of dried thyme
Pinch of marjoram
Salt & pepper to taste
Lightly braise beef cubes with onion and garlic. Combine all ingredients in small saucepan. Add liquid ingredients and spices. Slow cook for a minimum of 30 minutes or until beef is tender. Add additional water as needed to achieve desired consistency. Makes 1 serving for Omni Drops Program Phase 2.
Phase 3 modifications: Add ½ cup red wine, whisk in cold butter and add additional non-starchy vegetables (like mushrooms).
To go with the Beef Bourguignon, I decided to make some “Cabbage Rice”. Just put the cabbage in a food processor and pulse until it’s broken down into itty bitty pieces about the size of rice. Place in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Serve the Beef over the “rice”.
Weight loss update: I’m down 42 pounds and my husband is down 50 pounds. I’ll be starting phase 3 on Saturday!
