Rice and beans is a good choice. You can flavor it up a bit with some onion and green or red pepper.
Another one: Bush's vegetarian beans over spaghetti.
I'd have to look and see for archery hunters but I work with a couple from Idaho.
Now those guys who go to the cemetery and pop their 3 pointers (2 ears & a tail) when the snow is on the ground probably go by different "regulations".
Unless you like hunting,or farming pasture raised live stock, cheap healthy meat is like clean coal, it doesn't exist.
Woody's horseradish BBQ sauce is great on briskets for a non-sweet tart kinda taste. Get the red not the dark. Paint it on. Wrap it up in foil and throw it on the grill.
Recipe for Texas style (no beans) Chili
You'll need a big pot with a lid.
Three or more lbs of shredded shoulder roast, elk or venison....Elk works really good if you can find one.
(I'm not a big venison fan but the spicy chili hides the gamey taste. I mix it with half beef anyway but you don't really have to unless you've gone and shot a buck in the rut)
Brown the meat then shred it or at least slice it into edible strips. I like to section it and soak it in some Mesquite marinade for a very short time (couple of minutes) just before I brown it. Wrights mesquite liquid smoke (not the hickory) also works.
Boil some water with a couple cubes or spoons of beef broth.
First throw in two white and two yellow chopped onions.....lotsa onions.
Then throw in about three or four chopped jalapenos (two if you're not used to hot. You can always taste and add another or maybe two if you want while cooking. You want people who aren't used to hot to be able to taste it.)
Pour in a half bottle of Corona Extra beer. (Trust me. Corona works good in this) Drink the rest for inspiration.
Now throw in the browned meat after the onions get soggy.
Then throw in these spices: 1/3 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, no more than 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional), couple tablespoons garlic powder, about 1/4 cup ground cumin.
Lastly throw in at least 8 ounces of tomato sauce (but not too much) and about a cup (or more) of McCormick dark chili powder. Yes it's a lot......This is Chili. (You can mix in some other kinds if you like but at least a half cup of the dark powder with it.)
Let it simmer for hours and don't stir it too often. The secret is to let it cook on the bottom but scrape it up before it burns (about 30-40 minutes) and then stir it. Add more Corona or chili if desired.
Serve with cheddar cheese on top if you like and a little more fresh chopped onions if you want.
Do NOT put beans in Texas Chili. If you put beans in this Chili you will serve eternal damnation in Satan's hellfire....You've been warned.
Thicken it with a little corn meal if you get it too thin.
Anybody here have a good Thai Red Beef or Mussles Curry recipe ?
Green Chicken Curry ? Seafood Curries ?
Any other Thai dishes ?.....Crabcakes, Shrimp dishes or custard cakes ?
All you need is a crock pot, water or broth, a pound bag of lentils and spice. I make two kinds. Brown lentil dal is made with onions and garlic and beef or ham broth. Curried dal is made with red lentils, chicken broth and red curry mix. I sometimes add flour to make it thicker. You can add meat or veggies but really, there is no point.
Recipe is high protein, tasty, and healthy as all get out. Costs around 2 bucks for a crockpot's worth.
Oh, men are very capable of cutting back on meat. It might even help them live longer. Not to mention save a hell of a lot of cash.
OK the recipe is here for Texas meat chili, so a good veggie chili is also needed. We've been using this one:
We make up a big batch and then the first night it is chili with jalapeno cheese bread; after that the left over chili gets used in burritos, and is put into omelets. We usually continue to "extend" it by adding onions and more peppers.
I'm a very big eater. The kind of guy that you don't invite twice once you discover my appetite. :lol:
Pasta don't do it for me i'm hungry 1hr later.
Rice is out of question because of the potentially high arsenic level
Wheat instead of rice and has a better nutritional value than rice
The most efficient food of all for me are avocados, lentils from Puy, wheat bran and tofu
I find that lentils from Puy, red beans, navy beans, tofu, wheat bran, flax seeds + spices in a blender make a very cheap and solid soup
During winter fish oil is also a good idea to help to cope with cold.
Supplement the meat with other protein sources...almonds, walnuts, quinoa, kamut berries, millet, etc.
Bob's Red Mill is your friend and mine.
Even split green peas are a great source of protein (11g/serving). Add cubed ham & carrots to split green pea soup and season to your taste. Toss in a handful of crackers. Cheez-Its anyone?
We did plant an apple tree this year, along with a peach. The deer nearly defoliated them the very first night before I got the netting on them. They are at the neighbor's much bigger apple tree all the time. I think they have also nibbled on the raspberry and blueberry bushes we planted and fenced around... persistent buggers.
I have no idea what the limit is here in town.
