One of the things I SO appreciate about building our ranch business, is that we've had the pleasure of meeting and working with you! - So many hard working creatives that are full of compassion, too! I'm inspired by you every day.
So, what happens when you work so hard and give out so much creative energy to the things you love?
Usually, it's easy to keep up the pace if your taking time to do what re-fills your energy. I've learned that what refills you is different for each person and you have to explore what that may be for yourself. For me, it's making sure I get a quiet hike in, or walk in the mountains, but it may be completely different for you!
One thing is for sure- When I have those days where there's so much to do that, getting exhausted just can't be helped, the last thing I want to do is think about what I'm going to make for dinner.
While I love to cook, there are still those days where it's just one more thing to be creative about. I love it when I'm stuck in a rut, making the same type of meals over and over, and someone jolts me out of it with a new recipe! (Printable at the end of this page). So, that's what I'd like to do for you!
So, here is one for you, if your needing a fresh idea right now! It's one that my mom has been making for years and passed along to me. It's better than any finger steak recipe I have tried and we get constant requests for it. It's perfect with lean cuts of pasture-fed beef and is equally amazing with deer or elk meat.
What ever you do, don't leave out the ginger!
It makes the flavor combination perfect, so make sure you include it.
The longer you marinate it, the more flavorful it will be...
You can use any type of flour~ gluten-free, whole grain, spelt, etc, etc...they all work!
Here's the recipe... Enjoy!
****We use organic San J soy sauce because it goes through a process of fermentation- this removes toxins from the soy, leaving a digestible product.
**** Marinating for at least 2 hours will give the best flavor. The longer, the better.
****Need pasture- fed beef for your finger steaks? We can get that for you on our order page.
Take care - and make sure you take care of yourself, too!

It wasn't that long ago that I thought meals could only be healthy if they took hours to prepare.
Long periods of time would have to be set aside, if I wanted my family to eat meals that could give them the energy and the clear thinking they needed to do all that they were made to do...right?
...Not entirely true.
Like you, we are a busy family and have lots on our 'to do' plate, so I knew that hours of prep every day, just wouldn't happen in spite of my intentions. After lots of practice, study and listening to those wise women who have worked at this for much longer than I had, I realized that there are simple steps to condensing the prep that goes into really good foods. And we don't have to compromise our commitment to feed our families quality foods they can digest.
Some meals are just going to take longer than others, but I set aside a few recipes that are my 'fast food' options, for those days when I just need something easy and quick. But, I can be confident it will still leave my family feeling energized.
One of my favorite quick recipes is our Ranch Egg Burritos. Start to finish, I can have this on plates and ready to eat in 30 minutes and that includes the best homemade tortillas you will ever eat.
That's right, I said make the ranch egg filling AND the burritos in 30 minutes!
Eggs ~ are one of the most healthful foods you can eat. According to Dr. Mercola, proteins are found in all types of foods, but only foods from animal sources, such as eggs, meat and raw milk are complete proteins, meaning they provide the 8 essential amino acids.
Studies have found that eggs from hens that have truly been raised on pasture have 2/3 more vitamin A, 3 times more vitamin E, 2 times more omega 3 fatty acids and 7 times more beta carotene than eggs from commercially raised hens.
I know, it's so confusing to find the right eggs with all of the different labels, loop holes and ever changing definitions associated with "organic," "free-range," "pastured" and "cage-free," and that's why it's so important to find a farmer who can answer your questions about how they raise their foods. Using that information, you get to choose who raises your food. Knowing how your food is raised and where it comes from is the easiest start to taking control of your health.
