Contest: Make a Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

By Mark Sisson
6 Comments

I announced this contest last week to give you a little extra time to work on it. And I’m publishing it again today just in case you missed it in last week’s post.

Per annual tradition, once again it’s time to make some delicious Primal dishes. But first…

The Prize:

US Wellness has long been a favorite meat spot for MDA readers. Several years ago they donated pemmican and the popular 5 gallon bucket of fat. The last few years they’ve gone whole hog. And by hog, I mean cow. And they’re doing it again this year. US Wellness has generously offered up a cow to the winners of this contest.

For those of you with raised eyebrow, they won’t actually be delivering a mooing, cud chewing, udder dangling live cow to your doorstep. But you will receive the delicious meat that once was that cow. And I’m not just talking about a bucket of chuck. The winners will receive sirloin, brisket, short ribs, back ribs, rib-eye steaks, T-bone steaks, NY strip steaks, Delmonico steaks, filets, bottom round roasts, center cut roasts, chuck, tongue, liver, heart, kidney, beef tallow, marrow bones, beef stock, and an oxtail. Heart and tongue not your thing? No worries. This year’s winners will get to choose exactly what they want as they’ll be receiving $1500 worth of US Wellness gift certificates they can use to order hundreds of pounds of their preferred bovine cuts – all grass fed, grass finished. Check out this Grass Fed Goodness video where you can watch your prize/meal grazing around in sweet Missouri pastures.

But winning won’t be easy. It’ll take work. And Primal food…

The Contest:

Create and upload a Primal recipe video to YouTube. Have you mastered the omelet? Are you an organ meat fiend? Maybe your salad is so mean, it can win a chili cookoff. If so, let the world in on your secrets. Grab your video recorder, and show us how to make something Primal. There aren’t really restrictions on how you do it. The only requirement is that your video relates in some way to the Primal Blueprint eating plan. Show the world (how to prepare) your best Primal dish and you could be the winner of a whole bunch of meat. For ideas on what you can do, check out these playlists for recipe videos from 2012 and 2013.

The Contest Details:

On YouTube, please title the video “Primal Blueprint Recipe:” followed by your own sub-title.

Upload your video to YouTube and then email me the link. Include the words “Recipe Video Submission” in the subject line of your email. Otherwise, there’s a good chance I may completely miss your submission.

The Deadline: Sunday, January 25, midnight PST.

Who is Eligible:

This one is global, but keep in mind that the US Wellness gift certificates are not available to residents outside the U.S. In the event of a non-U.S. team winning, a prize of equal value will be given as substitute.

How A Winner Will Be Decided:

Video submissions will be posted toward the end of the Challenge. The Worker Bees and I will choose a list of finalists to be voted on by readers.

Fine Print:

  • MDA reserves the right to publish any videos submitted.
  • We ask that any videos submitted to this contest remain live on YouTube after the challenge for future visitors to Mark’s Daily Apple to enjoy.

That’s it! Have fun with this one and Grok on!

I love creating recipe videos! As a vegetarian there’s not a lot of strictly primal meals I eat, but I can make a mean omelette.

The app is definitely a game changer! Having the extra encouragement and guidance from the coaches is really nice.

Good luck to everyone this year! I’m looking forward to jumpstarting 2015 right! 🙂

I try all kinds of recipes all the time. I experiment pretty much every time i cook. It is so much fun! I love it!

The recipe for London broil and veggies sounds delicious. One caveat for those who aren’t experienced cooks: A teaspoon of salt is a LOT. Also, pan roasting tends to intensify saltiness. I would suggest using a salt shaker instead of measuring by the spoonful. Sprinkle the veggies according to your own preference (versus someone else’s). You can always add more salt if needed, but you can’t remove it if it ends up being way too much.

I think this may be an obvious question but, is this for US residents Only?
