Paleo Steak Salad with Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

Why I Used To Hate Steak

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

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).

My Easy Paleo Steak Salad Recipe

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.)

Breakfast Turkey Wrap Recipe (Grain-Free, Paleo, GF, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free)

Breakfast Turkey Wrap Recipe (Paleo, GF, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free)

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.

Easy No-Mayo Coleslaw Recipe (AIP and Paleo)

easy paleo AIP no-mayo Coleslaw recipe

Coleslaw is really easy to make and a great side dish!

One of the main issues of enjoying Paleo coleslaw is the mayo in coleslaw (most store-bought mayo uses canola oil). Of course you can make your own Paleo mayo (recipe here), but it’s sometimes too much of a hassle or you may be on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and can’t eat eggs.

That’s when this easy no-mayo coleslaw recipe comes in handy.

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

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.

One of the benefits of being back in the UK is the ability to pick up cheap tea, pate, and even pancetta in local small grocery stores. Apparently pancetta is an essential ingredient in the UK! But if you can’t find pancetta easily, then just use bacon instead for this recipe. [Read more…]

Paleo Chicken Liver Pate Recipe – from the Zenbelly Cookbook

paleo chicken liver pate recipe from The Zenbelly cookbook by Simone Miller

Simone Miller from Zenbelly catering is releasing her first cookbook on August 12th, and below is one of the amazing recipes from The Zenbelly Cookbook (you can read my review of the book here).

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.

Super Fast Paleo Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe

paleo easy smoked salmon salad recipe

I’m here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and salmon is one of the popular local foods here. While I struggled to find smoked salmon in the US, it’s really easy to get it in the throughout UK, and it’s delicious.

If you haven’t ever had smoked salmon before, it’s basically something you eat straight out of the packaging (no need to cook). It tastes like salmon but with a salty, smoky flavor, and its texture is that of raw fish (a bit drier than sashimi-grade). When you buy it, it’s often already sliced into thin slices (thinner than sashimi salmon).

As a child, I was initially terrified of eating smoked salmon (I was terrified of eating anything “raw”), and it took my quite a while before I started to enjoy smoked salmon. Now, I love it!
