Beef! It’s what’s for dinner.
Did you say this in your head when you read the first word, or is that just me?
May is National Beef Month, which sheds a spotlight on American Cattle Farmers and the many, many health benefits of beef. As we start to make plans and return to life as we once knew it, it’s important to remain active and consider better nutrition is always needed, which is why I wanted to share this delicious recipe with you!
I chatted with my good friends at WOIO in Cleveland on the Cribbs in the CLE show this morning sharing my favorite low-carb beef tostada recipe. You can slow cook the beef the night before or in the morning on your way out the door for an easy weeknight meal.
