  • vegetable oil, for cooking

  • ½

    lb. lean ground beef

  • 1

    garlic clove, crushed

  • 2

    cups whole wheat flour

  • 1

    cup cornmeal

  • ¾

    cup beef stock, tomato juice or water

  • ¼

    cup canola or olive oil, plus extra for cooking

  • 1

    large egg


Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a drizzle of oil in a skillet set over medium heat; cook the beef with the garlic until no traces of pink remain. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour and cornmeal. Stir in the beef mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the beef stock, oil and egg. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until well blended. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough about 1/2” thick and cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter or 1”x2” strips with a knife. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until springy to the touch. Makes about 2 dozen cookies (depending on their size). Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freeze.
