Delicious Autoimmune Paleo Compliant Beef Stuffed Buns!
- 2 large bonito or Japanese sweet potato, about 1.5 pounds: peeled + boiled (do this ahead of time)
- 2/3 cup coconut flour
- 2/3 cup arrow root starch
- 2 tsp grass feed beef gelatin
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder (I make the Bob’s Red Mill recipe, equal parts: baking soda, cream of tartar & arrowroot starch)
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup avocado oil + more for coating
- 1lb grass fed beef
- 1 onion
- 2 radishes
- 1/2 cup coconut aminos
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1/2 tsp horseradish powder
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
First prepare beef
- In a large skillet heat oil, 1 tbsp.
- Add sliced onion, radishes & cook until tender.
- Add in beef, break up with spatula, add in salt & spices.
- Stir constantly until browned & crumbly.
- Add in coconut aminos.
- Lower heat & simmer for 10 minutes.
- Turn off heat, set aside to cool.
- Pre-heat oven to 400F
- Bring a pot of water to boil
- Peel & dice the boniato, add to boiling water, boil until very tender.
- Drain, let cool.
- Place cooled potato in a bowl & mash with a whisk until smooth.
- Add in flours, gelatin, baking powder & garlic + salt.
- Add in vinegar, fold in.
- While drizzling in oil, mix the dough until well combined.
- If it doesn’t seem to be coming together with the spatula, try mixing it with your hands, you’re going to get them dirty in the next step anyway!
- Shape 8 2 inch balls, like if you were making meatballs.
- Once by one, pick up a potato ball, using your thumb make a 2oz sized well in the middle with one hand, while cradling it in the other hand.
- Spoon in 1 tablespoon of beef mixture, more if it fits.
- Then using your free hand, pinch together the potato dough to close.
- Now roll the dough between both hands to make it a ball again. Gently dip it in the extra oil and roll it again to evenly coat it.
- Place it on the sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining dough.
- Bake at 400F for 30-35 minutes until just golden.
- You don’t want to toast them because toasted sweet potato has an overpowering bitter taste, great in fries, not in these!
- These are heavy; I would portion 1 per person, maybe 2 if you’re carb loading. Serve with salad ?
