  1. I have always heard that browning meat, and then freezing without cooking all the way through was a safety hazard. Is that not true? I am hoping I am incorrect, because browning makes all the difference with flavor.

    1. It really is about how you defrost the meat, or making sure that the meat is fresh when you freeze it. If you have thawed it properly it can be browned, frozen and reheated.

    1. Hey, Beth! Thanks for catching that. I adapted the recipe from another menu and meant to replace it with beef broth. It’s updated on the recipe post and will be updated on the recipe card soon.

  2. I really don’t know anything about paleo, but this recipe looks great! What is the purpose of the coconut aminos?Thanks!
