2 pounds steak (I used deer because that is what I had but you can also use beef.)
6-8 small red potatoes
1 onion
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
1 block of cheese (My favorite is organic sharp cheddar!)
3 tablespoons of coconut oil for cooking
Pink Himalayan All Purpose Seasoning (This is my favorite seasoning, you can find it here.)

Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a cast iron skillet and heat over medium heat.
Sprinkle the steaks with the seasoning and place them in a heated cast iron skillet, let cook for 5 minutes, and then flip them.  Sprinkle the other sides with the seasoning and let cook for 5 more minutes.  While the meat is browning dice the red potatoes, onion, carrots, and celery.
Once the meat is done remove from the pan.
Add in the rest of the coconut oil, diced red potatoes, and carrots. Let them cook for about 10 minutes or until starting to feel soft.  Add in the onions and celery.  Cover with a lid and let them cook until soft.  Turning only once!
Once the vegetables are soft add the steaks back into the skillet.  Stir in and let cook for about 5 minutes.
Cover with cheese and place in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

This is the really cool part about this meal, you can switch it up and make it several different ways. Use  different meats, vegetables, or spices to change the taste of the meal to be the way you want it.


We have made this with beef, turkey, chicken, steak, and tuna. Get creative folks!


We buy our beef from a local cattle farmer that raises grass fed cows. If you don’t have access to local meat you can find grass fed meat at the store. Be sure to read your labels!  It is important for the label to say 100% grass fed and not just grass fed.  A lot of times cows will eat some grass or be finished on grain to fatten them up, it is hard to find meat that is truly grass fed.  The problem with this is that they are fed GMO corn and usually given added antibiotics and hormones.

My husband is a deer hunter and usually we have a freezer full of venison.  I love this because they are wild and grass fed. It is a great way to get healthy meat cheaper.  We have made this dish with deer meat and it is delicious. You can also use ground turkey.


Usually I will make a chicken melt the night after we make a whole chicken with the leftover meat.  It is a great way to use leftover chicken and stretch it into another meal. You can also bake chicken breast or chicken legs to use for this recipe.
