North African Shakshuka Recipe For Any Time Of Day

North African Shakshuka Recipe For Any Time Of Day

Shakshuka is a traditional North African dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The eggs get perfectly poached in the richly flavored tomato and meat sauce. Aside from chopping some vegetables and giving a can of chipotle in adobo a quick whiz in the blender or food processor, this is a one skillet meal that takes virtually no preparation and is ready in a flash. Shakshuka is filled with incredible flavors thanks to layers of spices - definitely use whole cumin and caraway seeds if at all possible. Freshly grated nutmeg would be ideal, too - I didn’t have this on hand at the time. The fresh spices really make a difference, but this will turn out great with powdered spices, too.

The Amazing Flavors Of North African Food


I used ground elk but you could definitely make shakshuka with any type of ground meat. A jalapeno pepper and chipotle in adobo give a smokey kick of spice, and a small drizzle of (preferably raw) honey will add just the right touch of sweetness. Goat’s milk feta cheese is always my preferred variety - for me, it always tastes even better than cow’s milk feta. The creaminess of the cheese creates the perfect balance with the rest of the ingredients. If you’ve never had shakshuka before, prepare to be hooked. The naan is optional, but highly recommended.

Elk Raised The Way Nature Intended


Our elk live completely free range, roaming on 20,000 to 100,000 acre ranches. We source from two locations, one being the Rocky Mountains of the United States. The other source that fit our strict quality standards was an elk ranch in the pristine mountain valleys of New Zealand. They wander as they please, grazing and foraging as they engage in all of their natural instinctive behaviors. As with all of our meat, these animals are never administered hormones, antibiotics or steroids of any kind. Elk is some of the most delicious and healthy meat you can eat, considered by many to be the most heart healthy meat in existence. Chefs love using our elk meat for its delicate flavor and outstanding tenderness.


Ingredients:

  • Bison tallow
  • 1 pound ground elk
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (optional), seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • Raw honey (small amount to taste)
  • ¾ lb goat milk feta cheese crumbles
  • 6 eggs
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, whole milk plain yogurt and naan for serving

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat the bison tallow in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add in the ground elk and cook just until browned. Break the meat apart into crumbles as it cooks.
  3. Add the chopped onion, jalapeno, garlic, and all of the spices (whole and powdered) to the skillet. Stir to combine and cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Use a high speed blender or food processor to puree the chipotle in adobo. Transfer to a jar or freezer bag to store for later use after adding 2 tablespoons to the skillet.
  5. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce and feta to the skillet. Drizzle some honey over top if desired. Stir to combine.
  6. Use the back of a spoon to create six hollows to crack the eggs into. Once the eggs are in the skillet, transfer the whole thing to the preheated oven. Bake for about 10 minutes.
  7. Serve garnished with a spoonful of yogurt, chopped cilantro and naan.

Instant Pot Elk Osso Buco Recipe That Everyone Will Love

Instant Pot Elk Osso Buco Recipe That Everyone Will Love

Osso buco is one of my favorite dishes, and making it in the Instant Pot is my new go-to method. Prepared this way, you can have delicious osso buco ready to eat in about an hour and a half. I like to have mine with potatoes and parsnips, but you could use any variety of vegetables you prefer. What really makes osso buco so ridiculously good is the flavorful meat and marrow from the bones. Everything cooks together into a rich, mouth watering tomato based sauce full of wonderful herbs and orange zest for an added zing of citrus. A generous splash of apple cider vinegar really rounds out the flavor.

Thick & Hearty Southwestern Texas Style Spicy Elk Chili

Thick & Hearty Southwestern Texas Style Spicy Elk Chili

This southwestern style elk chili is spicy, meaty and full of mouthwatering flavor. Ground elk meat is one of my favorite meats to cook with because it’s so tender and flavorful. I love using it for burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, you name it… and of course, chili. My number one tip for cooking with elk is not to overcook it. This naturally lean meat will cook more quickly than beef, so be mindful and don’t get distracted while it’s browning. Elk is considered one of the most heart healthy meats and is loaded with vitamins, minerals and protein. You are what you eat, and these are robust, adaptable and resilient animals that live in harmony with nature.

This stew has a nice spicy kick that you can easily adjust according to taste preferences. If you like it hot, add in the optional cayenne pepper in addition to the green chile powder or red pepper flakes. Chopped, roasted green and/or red chiles would be delicious here as well. Here in New Mexico, we refer to anything with both green and red chiles as “Christmas” style - no matter the time of year. Absolutely delicious all on its own, or serve topped with chopped cilantro, sour cream and cheese as desired. This versatile meal is quick to make and extremely satisfying. I think chili is one of my all time favorite meals, and this one doesn’t mess around with beans - it’s just straight up spicy, meaty goodness. Enjoy it on its own or as a topping on burgers, hot dogs or anything else you can think of.
