I would have never thought to stir fry lettuce until years ago, on a camping trip, my friend Eric made some sauteed ice berg lettuce over the camp fire in a large pan.
It’s true that food seems to taste better when camping, but I was impressed with this lettuce dish. Despite how weird it seemed to cook lettuce. But since then, and since I’m a huge fan of unusual foods, I’ve been sauteing lettuce of all types.
This dish, balances the watery, lightness of romaine lettuce with the rich oiliness of oxtail meat. I use oxtail to make bone broth all the time, and after I’m done, I have gut-healthy, gelatinous meat leftover for my other dishes.
That’s why oxtail randomly makes it into my favorite recipes, because it’s always on hand.
A simple, 5 ingredient stir fry of oxtail and romaine lettuce was one of my favorite oxtail recipes ever. And I share the recipe in my guest post for Cinnamon Eats. Get the recipe here.
This recipe was also found and featured on Marks Daily Apple on June 15th in the weekend link love post. So it’s been officially approved by the king of Paleo/Primal cuisine himself!
