Steak Au Jus Sandwhiches

One of the easiest recipes I made in a long time, not to mention so tasty! A great middle of the week dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 4lb Rump Roast ( I used a 2lb one)
  • 12 oz beer ( I used pale ale, DELICIOUS!)
  • One can of french onion soup
  • One can of beef broth
  • I also threw in a fresh onion

Instructions:

Throw everything in a crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours! If you want you can take meat out and slice about 6 hours into it and place back in crock pot to soak flavors.

I used french baguette for the sandwich, and scooped the juice to put on the side to dip.

Asian Salad

I had this recipe has a party, and I modified it to make it something that I would enjoy. The dressing is so tasty, and it wen’t great with my Ah- So Ribs. A great summer dish! You can add grilled chicken for protein, if you don’t want to do the ribs!

For the Salad!

  • 1 plastic square container of mixed greens
  • 3 romaine lettuce (package)
  •  red pepper (1-2 sliced)
  • grape tomatoes (1-2 packages)
  •  pea pods (1 package)
  •  1 bag of LaChoy chow mein noodles
  • sliced almonds

For the Dressing!

  • • 1 cup Canola oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  •  1/2 cup sugar
  •  1/2 cup cider vinegar •
  • 4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  •  2 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • a couple of dashes of sesame oil Topping

 

Ah- So Sauce

I love chinese food! I thought this would be a great way to incorporate it into Tuesday night Dinner.

I picked up pork loin. Rather than park chops, I marinated it in ah so sauce over night, and then threw them on the grill.

Use with caution because we started a small grill fire. I also wish I chopped up the pork to thinner slices to taste more of the marinade.

I found the ah so sauce in my local supermarket in the international foods isle!  BTW this stuff tastes like boneless spare ribs! :) 0003068490647_500X500

Zucchini and Sweet Potato Fritatta

Saw this:

Frittata

HAD to try. Simple and Easy Paleo Dinner. BTW I am on day 16!!

So I added in mushrooms to this mix, but just a little bit. I skipped the green peppers, and the parsley, who actually likes parsley??

This came out so TASTY. The sweet potato really helped it because without it you would be like.. where is the sugar? the milk? the cheese? Didn’t need any of it! so tasty! Great Paleo Dinner.

It was so good I forgot to take a picture before we devoured it: Heres what was left

Success!

 

 

Lindsey’s Special Sauce

OMIGOD. so I just MADE UP spaghetti sauce. Paleo. I am so IMPRESSED with myself. Heres the deal:

I have always hated spaghetti and meatballs, I LOVE tomatoes (eat them like apples) and I love pizza sauce, but there is something about spaghetti sauce I never liked. Red sauce eww. Just dont enjoy it. Same way how I love pickles but hate relish.

So the other day I decided to try Spaghetti Squash. Because thats what I can eat on Paleo. So Spaghetti Squash is easy, cut in half, take out the seeds, and bake face down at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Then I added Prego Sauce, (not Paleo friendly) and I HATED IT. you know why because it tasted JUST LIKE SPAGHETTI. for real. So I recommend spaghetti squash, because you REALLY can’t taste the difference. It’s what they say I know. But its true.

So time to try again but this time with my own sauce. This was also the first time I was cooking with coconut oil. I have been hesitant to cook with coconut oil because I thought it was taste coconutty, and I dont like coconut. WRONG. its such a high quality oil, and it DOES NOT taste like coconut!

So I threw in some sweet onion. (half) and two cloves of garlic, and a handful of sliced and diced mushrooms. I sautéed them for a while. Then grabbed a can of whole tomatoes, and put in the juice of the tomato and the tomatoes and diced them in the pan. Simmer Simmer Simmer.

Serve over spaghetti squash. MAN. SO GOOD. It DID NOT taste like Spaghetti Sauce. It kind of tasted like a gourmet pizza sauce, they kind you eat on a margarita pizza or something.

Here is my meal for the night: spinach and cauliflower “mashed potatoes” wasn’t a fan of those….

DELISH, SUCCESS.

Paleo Taco Salad

So, I have been LIVING off Paleo Mexican Cuisine. Legit. Living off. Figured I’d share my recipes here.

Grab a thing of ground beef, or ground turkey I use sometimes. Whatever is Paleo Friendly. Grab a Skilliet and heat it up to medium heat, while it is warming chop half an onion a whole onion whatever you feel. I use sweet onion because when its cooked it ALMOST tastes like sugar. (so lame that I think onion tastes like sugar, whens this diet over?)

Cook up your beef and onion, until semi brown, Heres the fun part SPICES BAM. Make Emeril Proud. No measurements here:

  • Garlic Powder
  • Cumin
  • Chili Powder
  • Salt

So I really have no measurements, I LOVE GARLIC, so I use lots, and I think im gonna start using fresh garlic in this. A bit of cumin, tsp maybe and 2 tsps of chili powder, Just keep tasting it, love the food, enjoy the food, and salt to taste, Let this SIMMER that means low heat, ( I forget sometimes) for about ten minutes lets those flavors soak it in baby.

Next I grab lettuce, Make a bed, a bed of lettuce, I spring a dash of salt, and heres the secret. LIME JUICE, Since pretty any dressing is off the market in Paleo diet, Lime juice is great. I LOVE soggy salad, weird I know, so I sprinkle it on early. I dice tomatoes and olives and throw them over there too.

GUACAMOLE. Heres my famous(not really but I love it)  Gauc Recipe, so easy so tasty.

  • Avocado
  • Lime
  • Salt
  • FRESH Cilantro

Make sure avocado is ripe, if not, G-ROSS. Mash up that avocado, split your lime in half and squeeze that juice all over (use the other half for your bed of lettuce waiting for you) Chop a BUNCH of cilantro, like two tablespoons of it. Mix it in, and salt rock salt if possible to taste. Plop that over your salad with your beef once it’s done simmering, and you will be SO IMPRESSED with yourself. Home cooked meal. thats DELISH, AND PALEO CAVEMAN, CLEAN eating.
