INSTRUCTIONS

Directions:

Bottom Beef Layer:

1. Cook ground beef on medium-low with 1/2 cup of water.

2.Optional: I added a few dashes of cayenne pepper (breaking open cayenne pepper capsules)

3.Move beef to baking dish.

4. If making gravy add a half cup of vegetable stock and 1/2 tablespoon coconut flour to the pan you cooked beef in.

5. Stir and once it thickens a bit add another 1/2 tablespoon. It should thicken quickly.

6. Pour over beef in baking dish.

 

Middle Red Cabbage Layer:

1. Put bacon grease and butter in pan and heat on medium.

2. Throw in the leaks and cook for a few minutes then add the cabbage and carrots.

3. Add apple cider vinegar cook for 10 to 15 minutes on medium-low.

4. Spoon on top of beef in baking dish.

 

Mashed Cauliflower:

1. Chop cauliflower and steam until tender.

2. Put butter and steamed cauliflower into a food processor or blender.

3.Blend to desired consistency.

4.Spoon on top of cabbage in baking dish.

Sprinkle some fresh thyme on the top (I also added a little bit of chopped chives).

Bake on 350 for 15 minutes, just enough to crisp up the mashed cauliflower a bit.
