Well at least that is what we called it growing up. Tomato based sauce with a tougher cut of meat, and veggies of your choice. As a kid, it was always carrots, onions, and white potatoes. We ate it with bread n butter.
Today’s version is sans potatoes so it is SCD friendly. I made it with sirloin tip which can be a little tough. You could also use hamburger which is just as good!
1.5 # sirloin tip, cut into pieces or ground beef
2, 16 oz cans of organic tomato sauce
1 jar of whole tomatoes
1 whole bunch of organic celery
2-4 carrots, sliced
1 onion (omit if early SCD diet as it’s a FODMAP)
1 whole organic orange bell pepper, diced
I used a pressure cooker and cooked just the tomato products and meat for 10 minutes on the first ring, THEN added in the veggies and continued to cook another hour on the stove top (but not pressure cooking again). You don’t have to have a pressure cooker. I just did it because I didn’t have time to let it simmer all day to tenderize the sirloin tip.
If you are doing this without a pressure cooker, just plan ahead and have a few hours to let the tomatoes and meat cook, tenderizing the meat. Once you are happy that your meat is tenderized, add your vegetables and resume cooking.
Either way, serve as is, or with a salad, or over cauli rice or red lentil noodles, etc. It’s VERY adaptable!
PS – this is a stock photo. My picture didn’t turn out that great so this one looks similar but has ground beef. It’s a beautiful red, lycopene rich recipe!
