Asian Quinoa & Beef Bites

Another fun recipe for PRE Brands Grass Fed Beef! I know the verdict is still out on quinoa. Seed? Grain? Seed? Grain? Pseudo-grain? Really?

These are super hearty and tasty and the perfect lunch box item. Also… you can OMIT THE QUINOA and use sesame seeds (or a mix of sesame and flax or chia) seeds instead for a totally paleo and Whole30 compliant version. Whoot Whoot.




























Ps. They freeze well. And thaw well in the fridge, or re-heated in the oven. The batch makes 16, and I’d say a generous serving is about 3 bites.
