Most everyone has had a pot pie – a meat pie that’s delicious any time of year, especially fall and winter. Beef, lamb, and pork are all terrific choices for a pot pie – just prepare a light pastry crust in a pot or pan, add your favorite grass-fed meat, and throw in your favorite veggies: carrots, green beans, peas, or potatoes.

A casserole is one of the few meals in which the serving vessel and the meal itself share the same name. The “casserole serving vessel” is a large, deep dish, and the meal takes many forms: chicken, fish, tuna, and of course, any of our grass-fed meats. Similar to a pot roast, a casserole mixes a meat with different chopped vegetables. Instead of a crust, a casserole incorporates a starchy “binding” ingredient to hold the meal together: these binders include flour, potatoes, pasta, and rice. A casserole is often topped with a cheesy or crunchy topping, and since casseroles are slow-cooked in the oven, they’re the ideal fit for our healthy, low-fat meats.

Stir frying has been around for more than 2,000 years, but the term “stir-fry” has only been part of the English lexicon for 70 years. Also known as “blitz-cooking” due to the speed at which a stir-fry meal is cooked and the importance of timing in making the dish a success, stir frying became wildly popular in America during the 1970s for health reasons and because family schedules were getting busier. Two primary techniques exist for stir frying: chao and bao. Both use high heat, but chao stir-fry uses liquid and thus the ingredients are softer than the bao style, which comes out browner and crispier.
There are plenty of delectable ways to create a stir-fry meal with pork, lamb, or beef. Here are three recipes we recommend:
Kebabs are one of the oldest meals known to humankind. If one applies the general definition to kebab as a “spit-roasted meat”, then the concept extends back almost 800,000 years! Originating in the Middle East, “kebab” is a broad term encompassing numerous grilled meat dishes. Americans are probably most familiar with kebabs as skewered meat and vegetables grilled over an open fire (“shish kebab”), but some kebab meals are cooked in a pan or created as a stew. Lamb has long been a traditional kebab meat, and so too have beef and pork.
