Gluten Free Savory Ground Beef

If cooking with coconut oil or liquid aminos for the first time, you might be interested to know that while high in saturated fat, the saturated fat in coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain fatty acids that can raise good cholesterol levels and are easily handled by the body. As for liquid aminos, they look and taste much like soy sauce and are naturally vegan and gluten-free.
