Beef and Farro

This recipe is super easy, healthy, and flavorful! (It's one of my husband's favorites, and he's even made it himself.)  The recipe calls for grass-fed beef, but as I don't eat beef, I've also made it with ground bison.  It hits all of the food groups and is very filling.  Farro is an ancient grain high in fiber and similar to a cross between rice and barley in texture and flavor.  If you are following a Paleo diet (as I'm pseudo-attempting right now), just put the meat mixture on top of some steamed spinach. You can never get too many greens!

1 lb. grass-fed beef or bison
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
3-4 cloves minced garlic
4 t. minced capers
sliced basil leaves

Sautee the above ingredients together. Meanwhile, prepare 3 cups cooked farro (see bag for directions and measurements) mixed with 4 cups diced broccoli florets.

Per person, serve 1/4 of the meat mixture over 1/4 of the farro mixture. Yummy!
