Janet G. graciously hosted the Cuernavaca Chicken Club meeting at her home last night, and she provided a neat little beef entree, using some Condalia Farms Brand Beef. It looked simple, and is, but I knew if I tried it without a recipe it wouldn’t be the same. So, she shared the recipe! I know I will be using this a lot, as it is … simple!
According to Janet, this recipe dates from Odessa, Texas, 1963. Odessa is home of the Permian Basin oilfield services and workers – for those who aren’t familiar – and also the home of Odessa Permian High School, of football and Friday Night Lights fame. 1963? I can only imagine. Cool!
“Brown a lb of ground beef in a little butter. Add a chopped onion till golden. And a can of Whole Foods organic Ranch beans. Cook half an hour.”
(Adding back a little “fat” of your choice is a good thing to do with our beef – whether in hamburgers, or steaks. It starts out so lean, anyway!)
