Paleo Beef Stew
Author: Stacey and Matty Date Posted:3 August 2017
Cooking Tip: Before roasting, microwave all root vegetables. This will pre-cook the vegetable and make roasting a hell of a lot faster as well as making the final product crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Depending on the size of your pumpkin, potato or other root vegetable will depend on how long you cook in the microwave for. Generally speaking 20 minutes is our go to cooking time for a filled microwave of root vegetables.
Training Tip: Video and watch back your training. You'll be suprised the improvements you can make with real time feedback from yourself. Do a lift. Watch the footage. Make the necessary corrections.
