high protein, low fat... lots of greens! high protein, low fat... lots of greens!
Number of Servings: 4


    1.5 lbs buffalo steak/trip tip (becomes closer to 1 lb after you trim all the fat off), sliced into fajita-like strips
    2.5 cups mixed braising greens (kale, purple kale, collard greens, chard, frisee)
    2 leeks, white parts sliced thick
    3 carrots, cut into thick chunks
    1/2 an onion, minced
    1.5 cups chopped crimini mushrooms
    1 can fire-roasted tomatoes
    4 cups chicken broth
    1.5 cups rice (i do a mix of black wild rice and long grain brown rice, plus some jade or indonesian volcano rice if available)
    2 bay leaves
    1/2 tbsp paprika
    salt & pepper


Just put everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours. You can brown the meat in oil in a pan first, but that's more to maintain the color of the meat than improve the flavor of the dish... so I don't do it to avoid the added fat from the oil. The greens will shrink down a lot, so if the pot is totally overcrowded at first, don't worry too much. Give it a stir after an hour or two, if possible, to make sure everything ends up submerged in cooking liquid!
