I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have leftovers. Leftover food, leftover trimmings, scrap, extra. Whatever you want to call it. Thing is, I don’t like to waste. It makes me sad, all of that lost potential. So when I messed up slicing the meat for the Venison Jerky that I made. I used it to create a fantastic meal. Actually I was getting a little frantic. I was running late for work and had not made anything for lunch that was gluten and dairy free. (Yep I am still working on that one.) I am determined to see this exercise in healthy eating through.
Where was I? Oh yes. So needed a lunch and wanted something healthy. I messed up some slices of venison that I was prepping for the Jerky recipe. I took those too-thin, chunky little pieces and tossed them in a frying pan with some rice and veggies. I created a meal that was so delicious and aromatic, the people that ordered Chinese for lunch were wondering what that amazing food was that I was eating!
This ended up being amazing. And sure bags of mini-sweet peppers are expensive, but they’re SO SWEET, and the saltiness from the meat and soy sauce just set the whole thing off! Did I mention that this smelled just incredible?! This is a healthy way to get a quick meal in and feel good about eating it.
