Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Chili

Easy Paleo Chili

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Chili from Mellow Mama I love this painless Paleo chili recipe. It may not be as elaborate or inventive as the others on the list, but you just can’t beat a recipe that takes so little time and effort. We’re all way too busy these days and that shouldn’t stop us from having the opportunity to eat a healthy and flavorful chili, even on a weekday. Also, I love that it’s not required to use a slow cooker for this one. I don’t have one (yet!) so this recipe is totally within my reach and the cook time is only 15-20 minutes. Most of the ingredients are already in the pantry but I might just add some bell peppers for a little change in texture if I have some on hand. (Photo permission from Eliza of Mellow Momma.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Pasta

Bolognese Sauce and Zoodles

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Pasta from Steak And Sass Mmm Spaghetti Bolognese! This is my childhood favorite, which still holds a special place in my heart. Of course as a kid I ate it with regular pasta noodles, but luckily there’s healthier and tastier ZUCCHINI NOODLES! These are great too as they don’t require you to own a spiralizer (although spiralized zucchini noodles are pretty darn cool as well). But anyway, back to the beef. This Bolognese sauce is divine. It’s rich in veggies like carrot, celery and ripe, blended tomatoes. Then, classic spices – basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano – infuse the beefy sauce. Add to that some cinnamon, nutmeg and bayleaf and you have a winning Bolognese, perfect for zucchini noodles or other Paleo-friendly pastas. Delish! (Photo permission from Steak and Sass.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Casseroles

Paleo Breakfast Casserole

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Casserole from Bravo for Paleo While it took a while for me to catch on to eating savory, protein-rich breakfasts, I’m so glad I did. Research shows that it can make all the difference in sustaining your energy levels and keeping you feeling good throughout the day. Similar to a frittata, this breakfast casserole is hearty as ever and surprisingly simple. At only 6 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time, this is great for a last-minute Sunday night cook off, then cut it into squares, tupper it up, and you’ve got a healthy breakfast ready to go for every day of the week! I’d recommend freezing 2 servings to make sure they last you through to the end of the week. (Photo permission from Monica of Bravo For Paleo.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Meatballs

Creamy Curry Meatballs

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Meatballs from The Primal Pursuit I always thought of meatballs just as a thing you put on top of pasta. Depending on how they are made though, they work really well as a standalone dish! These creamy curry meatballs are made in bulk using 3 lbs of beef (perfect for entertaining a large group or otherwise freezing the leftovers for future use). Diced apple – I think shredded would work even better – provides a sweet and moist aspect to these meatballs. But the real star is the amazing curry sauce! With tomato paste, coconut milk and some yummy spices to really flavor it up, these meatballs will feel lucky to be covered in such a beautiful, creamy sauce that is my idea of, well, perfection.

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Stir-fry

Grass Fed Persian Spiced Beef

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Stir Fry from Cinnamon Eats I love cooking international food (my favorite cuisines are Mexican, Thai and Indian) but I know next to nothing about Persian cuisine. This recipe caught my eye because I love expanding my flavor horizons. A key part of this recipe is the Persian spice mix called “advieh”. It includes spices you might typically see in Indian cuisine as well (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cumin) but there is also a more surprising component: GROUND ROSE PETALS! I already love rose petal tea and chocolate with rose petals, but this spice mix is totally new to me. I’m going to make a large batch, try out this recipe, and then use it when I delve into some of blogger Naz’s other Persian recipes on Cinnamon Eats. I love traveling through food!

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Sauté

Simple Stuffed Eggplant with Ground Beef (Grain-Free and Dairy-Free)

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Sauté - from Jules Fuel There are a few things that stand out about this simple recipe. Even though it’s Turkish cuisine, the required ingredients are nothing obscure, so they shouldn’t be at all difficult to find. Even though it takes a lengthy 50 minutes to cook the eggplant, which is the first step, this recipe is easy to make on a large scale – really just however many eggplants you can fit in your oven at once (although you need to do the calculations because this amounts for this recipe are for a yield of two servings). I love how Jules breaks down the health properties of all of the ingredients. Also, I’ll admit that I have a weakness for any food that is served in a “boat”, in this case, an eggplant boat. Aesthetically pleasing AND delicious. (Photo permission from Julia of Jules’ Fuel.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Tacos

Chocolate Chili Tacos

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Tacos from Running to the Kitchen CHOCOLATE chili tacos? At first I shook me head no because it just didn’t make any sense, but then I remembered about mole sauce (a common Mexican ingredient with a chocolate flavor that goes well with everything) and upon closer inspection, realized that this recipe uses unsweetened cocoa powder so it’s not some kind of weird dessert taco fusion, but actually an authentic Paleo-tilted Mexican classic. Plus I love all of Gina’s other recipes and should really not be doubting her cooking wisdom at this point. Gina keeps it uncomplicated with a very quick process: start with shallots, garlic and chilies (sub shallots with onions if necessary), then cook the beef with tomato sauce, the cocoa and a few more spices. Total prep AND cook time is 15 minutes, and if you don’t have grain free tortillas nor the time to make them from scratch, you can alternatively use a crispy lettuce leaf as a wrap to keep it Paleo.

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Burgers

Bunless Portobello Burger

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Burgers from Sew Let's Cook These easy Portobello burgers aren’t totally “bunless” if you consider that the mushrooms act as great grain-free buns! The mushrooms and burgers are made separately but both take less than 5 minutes to cook. Because the beef part of the recipe is so darn basic (just beef, salt and pepper) you could always customize it, say, if you prefer your patties with chopped onions and bell peppers. But these could also be great toppings, alongside some other recommended toppings by blogger Amber such as avocado, bacon and hot sauce. (Photo permission from Amber of Sew Let’s Cook.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Meatloaf

Ultimate Paleo Meatloaf (With Ground Pork)

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Meatloaf from Christian Jax at Paleo Canada This Paleo meatloaf takes a while to cook all the way through but a very fast and uncomplicated prep process compensates for the long bake time. Also, a delicious Paleo-friendly ketchup recipe is included as part of the sauce. You can make it spicy or not by including or leaving out the jalapeños. While the original recipe is for meatloaf, Christian also makes a good point that you can use this very same mix for Paleo meatballs (and I have a feeling that from there, they can be squished into Paleo burger patties as well, but I haven’t tried it myself). The sauce is quite sweet and not eccentric in flavor, so this is also a great option for the whole family (I’m alluding to the picky eaters of the house.)

Our Favorite Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Crockpot or Slow Cooker

Golabki (Low-Carb and Grain-Free)

Paleo Ground Beef Recipe for Crock Pot or Slow Cooker from Domestic Soul Don’t worry if you can’t pronounce it correctly – I’m still wondering if I’m saying it right myself. All you need to know is that this is a delicious Polish stuffed cabbage (another international cuisine to explore!) that can be prepared in the crockpot but there are also tips on oven cooking if that’s all you’ve got. I get a little tripped up thinking of how I’ll figure out how to lacto-ferment rice, although the instructions of the process are linked in the recipe. I’ll probably just stick with the recommended rice alternative, cauliflower rice. The step-by-step photos show really well just exactly how to roll these babies up the way they are intended and the final product looks something like a Polish enchilada casserole! I just turned this into a fusion dish, didn’t I? (Photo permission from Amanda of Domestic Soul.)
