We bought this Instant Pot from Amazon around 5 months ago, and it’s been put to some amazing uses – like making this super tender beef short ribs recipe.
This recipe is a modified version of one that Jana, one of our readers, sent in. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner, and I asked her if I could try making it with some modifications and then share the recipe with everyone.
She very generously agreed, so here it is! Thanks Jana!
(Even if you don’t eat much fish, give this recipe a try. It’s really really good especially with the garlic ghee!) And an AIP version of this recipe will be posted here soon.
Petrale sole is a delicious fish that’s pretty cheap (we bought 3 for around $15 at Costco).
There’s not much debate between the various diets that fish is super nutritious and healthy, and I happen to love all seafood, so we often cook fish in our house.
Petrale sole is a fish I’ve eaten at restaurants before, but I’ve never tried to cook it until now.
It was remarkably easy and tasty, and here’s how to cook it.
You may have read Louise’s Ultimate Guide to the Ketogenic Diet. She also provided an informative keto foods list to accompany the guide. If you haven’t seen it already, I encourage you to read the article if you’re curious to find out more. To sum it up: when you nearly completely cut out carbs from your diet (even those trace amounts found in vegetables), your body goes into “ketosis” and starts burning fat as fuel instead of glucose.
This is a dish that my parents made a lot during my childhood, and in Chinese, it’s known as Gong Bao Ji Ding (宫保鸡丁). It’s also a popular dish in America, and you’ll find it in a lot of Chinese restaurants as Kung Pao Chicken.
It’s quick to make and can be pretty spicy! So, check out this recipe and bring some authentic and healthy Chinese food into your diet.

Plus if you’re deficient in vitamin B12, which many of us could do with more of, there’s 220% of your daily value of B12 in just one crab (around 140 calories).
And here’s an easy and delicious way to cook Dungeness crab:
Lamb is pretty popular in England, but I was never a fan of it. Later, I figured out that there was nothing wrong with lamb – I actually really enjoy lamb – but it had to be fresh lamb cooked well so that it was tender.
My mum recently started making these great grilled lamb chops – so tender, so flavorful! And so I just had to share this recipe with you. Plus they’re really easy. Even if you think you don’t like lamb, give these a taste when you next fire up the grill!
This is such an easy recipe! I started using deli turkey as a wrap back in the days when I did low carb, and I still use it occasionally to make quick snacks or breakfasts like this one.
Deli turkey works amazingly well as a wrap and adds a ton of flavor too. The only thing to watch out for is which deli turkey brand you purchase.
I never knew broccoli beef was a Chinese dish until I had it in the US! But now, I love it, and it’s easy to make at home too.
I made this dish with leftover Korean shortrib (Galbi), which I found at Costco, but you can use any beef sliced thin and cooked.
I saw a similar broccoli bacon salad in the pre-made food section of my local Whole Foods last week, but the problem I have with buying pre-made food in Whole Foods is they typically cook everything with canola oil!
So, I created a similar salad with broccoli, bacon, red onions, and coconut cream. If you prefer more crunch, you can use raw broccoli instead (I blanched the broccoli first).
Spaghetti squash is a fantastic grain-free noodle that’s super easy to cook. I love sloshing some Paleo sloppy joes on top of spaghetti squash.
What is Spaghetti Squash
According to Wikipedia, “spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo var. fastigata) (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash.”
There are seeds in the middle (which you can roast to eat as a nice Paleo snack) and the “meat” of the squash is hard when raw (like all other squash), but falls apart into spaghetti-like strands.
I’m loving these baby squash from Costco – they’re just so cute! But you can make this recipe with zucchini instead.
It’s such a simple recipe!
This Paleo sloppy joes recipe is so easy and delicious! I like to make a huge batch of this (double the recipe below) and keep it in large containers in the fridge to eat during the week.
It’s very versatile – you can eat this easy Paleo sloppy joes by itself, top it on microwave Paleo bread (it takes 5 minutes to make), or my favorite is to top it on this root vegetable mash (a trick I picked up from eating at a ton of times at my favorite NYC Paleo restaurant, Hu Kitchen).
My dad, who’s diabetic, tops Paleo sloppy joes on a bowl of easy bacon brussels sprouts – he loves it!
