Creative Meat and Potatoes Dinner Recipes | NIKU Farms

January 26, 2022

Why do people think that meat and potatoes always has to be so “Meat and Potatoes”?

Just because it’s a classic combination doesn’t mean that it needs to be boring! NIKU Farms has a wide variety of grass fed meat, ethically sourced fish, and sustainable dry pantry items that can help to spice up your family’s favourite meal.

Make your busy weeknights a little better by getting creative with pasture raised meat and their potato side dishes!

Slow Cooker Roast Beef and Potatoes

This is probably the classic dinner dish you imagine when you hear meat and potatoes: a delicious roast beef and white, buttery potatoes.

Put your grass fed beef into an instant pot or slow cooker with your choice of potatoes cut into bite-size quarters. Season with salt and pepper, and let cook until the beef reaches an internal temperature of 145F.

Plate your fall apart roast beef and the well-seasoned potatoes next to it. Add some asparagus to the slow cooker for some greens, or add a fresh seasonal salad as your side dish.

Lamb Moussaka

If you haven’t tried lamb moussaka, you are truly missing out on an incredibly flavourful dish! 

Add sliced potatoes to an oiled sheet pan or flat dish. Once they’ve browned, add in your ground lamb, garlic, and onions, seasoned with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Then add your tomato sauce and cook for 30 minutes. 

Top with a gooey cheese sauce, and cook until golden brown.

Grilled Meat and Potato Skewer

Looking for a fun way to spice up your meat and potatoes but still keep it family-friendly? You and your kids will love these simple yet tasty grilled meat and potato kebabs!

Use grill-safe skewers, then alternate inserting stewing beef cubes and bite-sized potatoes. You’ll want to cook the potatoes a little to make them soft enough to skewer. Then season the entire skewer with salt and pepper, and any other spices your family loves. Maybe spice it up with some paprika, cayenne pepper, or red pepper flakes!

Shredded Chicken and Sweet Potato Tacos

For a fun twist on a classic, why not put your meat and potatoes in a soft shell taco? It’s a quick and easy dinner recipe that will make the whole family smile.

Slow cook your pasture raised chicken thighs or chicken breasts, shred them up, and coat in barbecue sauce. Then deep fry some slices of sweet potato, and put your ingredients on a soft tortilla. All you have left to do is fold and enjoy! Add some corn or coleslaw to your tacos for a fresh crunch, or sour cream and black beans for some creaminess.

Now that you’ve heard our easy dinner ideas, check out the pasture raised, grass fed meat and fish products you can add to your NIKU Farms box and start thinking about how you can dress up your family’s favourite meat and potatoes dish!
