My overall experience was eye opening. I have a whole new relationship with food and with my body. Before, I felt like there was my body and there was me. Two separate things. Now, I feel and see that that I’m all one.

Shiregate FarmsThis month Adam is highlighting his new partnership with Shire Gate Farms with this fantastic recipe. Adam supports grass-fed beef for its Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) content due to its ability to graze on what nature intended. CLA is your performance enhancer acting as an anti-inflammatory, fat burner and lean muscle grassbuilder.

Grass-fed beef requires quick cooking times and that fits this dish perfectly. All you need is a hot grill some Shire Gate Sirloin and a few minutes cooking time. Traveling through SE Asia is a gastronomic adventure with roadside food stands the whole way. This dish will take you there.

  • 3 stalks Lemongrass, trimmed and minced
  • 3 cloves Garlic,
  • 2 Shallots, chopped
  • 2 Scallions, trimmed and chopped

  • Sea Salt
  • 2 Serrano Chiles (optional)
