This is a great dish. Once you make the “basics”, you can add any protein you choose. In this recipe, I added cooked brisket. You could use flank steak, any type of roast, pork butt, even ground beef – you choose.


Here are two proteins I haven’t tried – chicken livers or sweetbreads. They might be delicious in this basic recipe. However, don’t allow these organ meats to overcook.


Blueberry Beef



  • 2 onions
  • 5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 6 carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional herbs to taste (turmeric, red pepper flakes, sage)
  • 2-4 pounds of cooked brisket, flank steak, any type of roast, pork butt (all sliced into serving-sized pieces) or ground beef
  • Power greens (mixture of chard, kale, and spinach)



  1. In a Dutch Oven or saucepan, place onions, garlic, carrots, blueberries, and bone broth.
  2. Cover and cook approximately 1 hour on low to medium heat (until carrots are soft).
  3. Uncover and raise heat to medium to reduce liquid.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add additional herbs to taste.
  6. Add meat and simmer another 5 minutes to combine flavors.
  7. Place “power greens” on serving plate.
  8. Spoon the Blueberry Beef over greens.
