Trying out a recipe from C&C Beef: Mongolian Beef

My friend Jessica and her family sell locally-raised beef through their business, C&C Beef. Listen to this description, below. Doesn’t it make you want to run out and purchase beef from them right now?!

“C & C BEEF:┬áPremium locally grown grain finished, dry aged beef sold here in Maryville Tn.

Our beef is born and raised here on pastures in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains. We grain finish the beef on grain we grow and mix on our farm. We use the closest USDA inspected processor and sell cuts and ground beef frozen by the pound out of our USDA inspected freezer.”

I have purchased ground beef from C&C Beef in the past, but being completely useless in the kitchen, I had NO idea what the any of the other cuts they offered were. I mentioned that I’d purchase something different if she would walk me through a recipe using a new cut, with detailed instructions so I wouldn’t mess it up.

Ask, and ye shall receive!

Jessica sent me the recipe for Mongolian Beef & Broccoli, which is featured on her blog here. I tried making it last Friday night, and it was a success!

I appreciate that she went step-by-step giving information that may seem basic to some, but was truly appreciated by me (for example, what “against the grain” means exactly, along with a photo!)

I would never, ever have purchased a flank steak until she gave me this recipe! Thanks, Jessica, for a fantastic meal that my family truly appreciated! (Okay, maybe not the littlest, but he’s a terrible eater!)

C & C Beef will be selling their locally-raised beef again this Saturday morning from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For additional hours, prices, etc, please visit their website here, or their Facebook page or Instagram feed.

Thanks, Waters Family!
