Almond Butter Beef

First time I saw Almond Butter Beef recipe on Baby Damulag’s post, I’ve been itching to try it. Since I’ve been searching for a different way to cook beef, I gave this a try.

Almond Butter Beef (modified from Baby Damulag)
Ingredients:
2 lbs of beef stew meat
Almond butter (I didn’t measure mine, but roughly around 1/2 cup?)
Salt & pepper
Italian seasoning
Chopped onions & garlic
1 cup homemade chicken broth
Avocado oil

Directions:
1. Marinate the beef with salt, pepper and Italian seasonings (I left it overnight, but an hour should be sufficient)
2. Saute chopped onions and garlic until translucent – mix in the beef


3. Pour in the chicken broth – bring to boil

4. Turn down the heat to medium low – simmer until beef is tender (about 1-2 hour?) – I used pressure cooker so it took me around 40 minutes.
5. Mix in the almond butter into the beef – add salt to taste

From here, be very attentive because almond butter will thicken the sauce and if you’re not careful enough, it’ll get burned! – and that actually happened to me. 😦

Homemade Almond Butter with Flaxseeds

When I saw my local grocery store sold their dry roasted raw almonds for $3.99/lbs, I know I just had to grab some! Most places I’ve seen are selling at much higher price! Besides they sell it in a bulk bin so we can scoop as many as we want. I got total 3lbs of almonds.

I bought a bag of Roasted Golden Flaxseeds from TJ a while back and it had been sitting in my freezer forever. An idea popped in my head: Why don’t I make Almond Butter with Flaxseeds instead?

Super Easy Homemade Almond Butter Flaxseeds
Ingredients:
1 cup of dry roasted raw almonds
About 3/4 cup Roasted golden flaxseeds – I’d reduce it to 1/2 cup next time

Directions:
1. Blend flaxseeds in your food processor until mostly grounded

2. Next pour in the almonds

3. Blend at high speed for about a minute – occasionally stop and scrub the sides. – at this point you got almond meal

4. Keep blending until it becomes nut butter

Like this!

VOILA!

Hmm…the smell of the roasted flaxseeds sure heavenly!

Store in a glass jar and refrigerate.

Use it for dippings, make raw almond cookies etc.

Super easy!
