I did a DNA test with 23andme.com a few months ago, and the results astounded me and my parents!
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!
I really love oxtail (it’s so tender and flavorful), and I’ve been lucky that it’s so plentiful in the UK! I see it at the butcher’s all the time, whereas I had to special order it in New York from my local butchers there.
I’ve been playing around with different ways to enjoy oxtail. Jeremy loved the tomato and garlic oxtail recipe I made initially – the recipe is here – and he didn’t want me to keep experimenting since he couldn’t imagine it better. Of course, when he tried this recipe with the mustard gravy, he completely agreed that it was even better!
Liver is a really nutritious Paleo food, and pate is a great way to get more liver into your diet – it’s flavorful and easy to make. It’s great for spreading onto some Paleo crackers (recipe also in Simone’s book!), or if you’re too lazy to make Paleo crackers (like me), you can just eat it straight! It’s also very filling.
I’m a huge fan of cooking in bulk, and I’ve written about my 3 step system to ensuring you always have Paleo food available (that post is here).
So, in this post, I wanted to give you a quick and delicious example of how to cook 3 meals super fast using slow cooker pork + 3 other easy meals to add some variation (so, lunch and dinner for 3-4 days or dinner for a whole week)!
I’m a big fan of Shabu Shabu – it’s basically boiling thin slices of meat in a pot of broth and then eating it with a sauce (often made from soy sauce, garlic, peppers). There are variations on shabu shabu as well – in Chinese cuisine, this is often called hot pot. And in French cuisine, fondue is a version of this.
A ton of restaurants serve this type of cuisine, and they’re pretty paleo! I often go to shabu shabu and ask for no broth (because I can’t be sure what they put into the broth most times) with thin slices of beef, lamb, and vegetables. If you’re worried about soy sauce, then take your own gluten free tamari sauce to the restaurant (that’s what I do!).
So, this recipe is all about making a super quick shabu shabu beef dinner at home. Because the meat is thinly sliced, it cooks really fast!
This is a great tuna salad for when you don’t have any Paleo mayo handy! This Paleo Italian tuna salad recipe uses olive oil instead of mayo to make the tuna moist and tasty.
Sometimes you just need bread crumbs for a recipe, and that can be tough when you’re trying to stick to a Paleo diet.
That was the case when I was making meatloaf. If you don’t use bread crumbs in this meatloaf recipe, it’d just be this dense chunk of meat (not very tasty!).
So, how do you make Paleo bread crumbs fast?
