A Taste of the Farm, Even in Winter

Stone ground corn grits, grass fed local beef and a "spring crisp" vegetable all went into this dinner on a very cold winters' day.  The recipe was inspired by Food Network Magazine.  The grits are from Palmetto Farms, the beef from Working H Farm and the Celtuce from Morgantown Farmer Market.  Here's how I made it:

Stone Ground Corn Grits, Sirloin & Vegetables
