Paleo Beef Stuffed Mushrooms (Plus Bonus Recipe!)

TasteThatPaleoStuffMushrooms 090

When I was shopping, I saw “Stuffing” mushrooms, baby bella mushrooms that were the right size and shape to be a meaty little vessel for something tasty, and It got me craving them. I’ve only ever had mushrooms stuffed with some sort of gooey breadcrumb mixture, or cheese. So I was eager to create something that gave me the “stuffed” experience – in a savory and healthy way.

Rinse your mushrooms, and if you haven’t already, remove the stems.  Place the mushroom caps in a glass pan lined with foil. If there is room, throw the stems in there to roast as well.

Chop and saute, over medium heat, with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil until softened.

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 cup of greens (I used a southern mix of mustard, collard, spinach, and turnip greens)
  • 15 or so oil-cured olives – pitted and chopped
  • 1/3 cup raisins

Add the mixture to a bowl, along with 1 egg and 1 lb ground grass-fed beef or bison, as well as some cayenne pepper, ginger powder, oregano, and a touch of salt.

Make little meatballs and press into mushroom caps

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 30 min, until the meat is cooked through, but don’t over cook.

—— BONUS RECIPE!—–

I had some leftover meat, since I only had 6 mushroom tops, so I whipped up a little something – with a similar theme – as an appetizer while I waited for the mushrooms to bake. My boyfriend liked it so much he said It was worth mentioning. You can use it as a stand alone recipe, but Since the ingredients are already listed above, I thought I’d just stick it in as a bonus.

After completing the above prep with the vegetables and the meat, add the mixture to a pan with an additional

  • cup or two of greens
  • 6 or so sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • a little sesame oil
  • a splash of coconut aminos

and sautéed, stirring to break apart the meat, until the meat was pretty much cooked. I then cracked two eggs over  the mixture, covered the pan, and let them cook over. When the eggs are your desired amount of done-ness – scoop mixture into a bowl and enjoy! Unfortunately I didn’t get a very good picture – since I had already started eating it!
