Make your AIP Beef and Broccoli Rabe
To prepare this dish, begin by washing and roughly chopping your broccoli rabe. Boil a large pot of water and once water has boiled, add chopped broccoli rabe to blanch until just wilted. Set the broccoli rabe aside in an ice bath as you prepare your beef.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and thinly sliced onion and garlic before your ground beef and dried spices. Once meat has begun to brown, add olives, raisins and fresh basil. Finally, add broccoli rabe to dish stirring to incorporate the flavours. Taste for salt and adjust as needed.
Can I substitute the broccoli rabe?
The broccoli rabe ads a distinctive flavor to this dish. If you can’t find it you can substitute broccoli, but I wouldn’t recommend blanching it. Instead, chop into florets and cook directly in the skillet after adding the beef.
What can I serve this with?
You can serve this dish with zoodles, sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice or your favourite AIP pasta substitute. It’s really such a great meal that’s ready in under 30 minutes.
