I used to hate steak. At first, it was just because I didn’t like things that had blood coming out, and then once I got over that hump, it was because I was too scared to cook steak. Steak is often expensive, and I was terrified that I would ruin it.
Finally, I decided to take a chance and try cooking steak (using the pan-frying method). It was easy!
Maybe my steaks don’t taste quite as juicy as Gordon Ramsay’s, but I still love it.
My simple way of cooking steak is to salt it before hand, then heat a frying pan with lots of ghee in it. Then carefully put the steak in, cook it for 3 minutes on high heat, then flip it and cook it for another 3 minutes on high heat. Then I’ll gently feel the steak with a spatula to see how firm or soft it is. Usually, it’s about medium rare at this point, and I cook it for 1-2 minutes longer to get it to medium. After cooking, I rest the steak on a plate for 5 minutes (some of the blood and juices will flow out) and then serve it.
Note – this is for a thin steak (for a thicker steak, it’s much better to stick it into the oven for a few minutes on 450-500F after pan-frying it on high heat for 30-60 seconds on each side).
There are plenty of ways of eating steak, but salads are always delicious (and I love how easy they are too). So, here’s my easy Paleo steak salad recipe with some peaches fried in coconut oil. (If you omit the ghee and cook with coconut oil, then it’s AIP compliant too.)

Even though my heritage is Jewish, my family always celebrated “secular” Christmas with our family friends. We never took up the Jewish tradition of movies and dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and for good reason: we didn’t want to miss out on the food! Not to mention another opportunity to join around the table and celebrate the holiday season with our community. For me, that’s what Christmas is all about.
Ah pizza, your favorite treat for a birthday party, slumber party, after party, any occasion really…
There are tons of options for Paleo pizza and our favorite bloggers have all the best ideas. Also for Primal people who allow a bit of cheese in their diet, we have a ton of great Primal pizza recipe ideas as well. Check it out!
(Above photo used with permission from Mellissa of I Breathe… I’m Hungry.) It’s the time of year to count our blessings, and I have just so many things to be thankful for. Family, good friends, and delicious food all help to keep me warm when the weather gets chilly. I’m also thankful for the great community of Paleo food bloggers and their recipes; because of them, I don’t have to miss any of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes this year.
Baked salmon is one of the easiest recipes, and it’s so nutritious. This is a really easy and tasty combination of flavors. My mum thought it was the best salmon she’d tasted from me.
Chicken wings: a perfect appetizer to any all-American meal! My foreigner boyfriend loves to make chicken wings as a starter when he cooks for “American night” with his friends and I never considered chicken wings to be so exemplary of American cuisine, but it just so happens…
Since we released our favorite Paleo Pasta Recipes last week, I thought it only appropriate to follow up with this list of great Paleo Meatball Recipes as well! What stood out to me though, was that many of these recipes are not totally necessary as a pasta topper –they are amazing as a standalone dish, meaty starter, or take-away poppers for lunchtime or a snack on a long commute.
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.
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.
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.
A reader emailed me a few months ago asking for a Paleo tuna casserole recipe, and I realized that I had zero idea what that was, having not grown up in the US!
For those of you that also never had tuna casserole before, Wikipedia describes it as “a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles (or some other starch such as rice) and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added,” and topped with something crunchy like potato chips.
