Pizza & Beef, Beets, & Broccoli

We made two amazing dinners two nights in a row. Quite the accomplishment for two sleep deprived, working, new parents.

Tonight's dinner was Beef, Beets, & Broccoli. We did a modified version of this recipe I did several years ago.

The best part about this dinner was the beets! Yum. I'm super into coconut right now. So, I tossed the very thinly sliced beets in coconut oil, a few splashes of rice vinegar, and some salt and pepper. I roasted them for about 45 minutes (I wasn't really keeping track) at 400 degrees.

Paul pan fried some small beef chunks with some curry paste and ginger. The beef and beets were served next to some bright green steamed broccoli.

All I can say is beets roasted in coconut oil, AMAZING!

Sunday night Paul made some amazing pizza crust and tried his hand at tossing the dough instead of using a rolling pin. Turned out great. Somehow he made it the exact size of the pizza stone. We topped it with garlic, olive oil, fresh hand pulled mozzarella, tomatoes, and fresh basil. To finish it off we used a little Himalayan pink salt that we scored from a friend and fresh ground pepper. Yum!
