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)
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

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
1 cup of dry roasted raw almonds
About 3/4 cup Roasted golden flaxseeds – I’d reduce it to 1/2 cup next time

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!


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!
