Contest: Make a Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

The Prize:

I’m giving away another huge assortment today, starting with…

A Sous Vide Supreme – This is kind of a big deal. Sous Vide does to a steak what Barry White does to a love song. Today’s big ticket item is the Sous Vide Supreme, courtesy of Dr. Michael Eades. It’s a form of slow cooking using a vacuum sealing technique that keeps all the juices in the meat. But it’s so much more. It’s high culinary art captured in steel, praised by the NY Times, and used by top chef Richard Blais. Watch a few videos if you aren’t yet impressed. And for anyone still unsure of what’s going on inside that metal box, having one of these is like having a four-star chef sitting on your counter top. A tiny four star chef. Without the little mustache, puffy toque, or outrageous accent. Winner gets both the Sous Vide Supreme and the Vacuum Sealer. Soak on that!

Alaskan SalmonThe Wild Alaskan Salmon Company is back again this year with another offering of fresh Alaskan wild-caught sockeye salmon. Winner gets 5 lbs. Fair warning to folks who’ve never done the wild-caught Alaskan thing: It’s good enough to make a fish snob of you. You may find it very hard to be satisfied with the seafood counter at the Piggly Wiggly after eating this stuff. BONUS: Use “MDA” when ordering for a 10% discount.

Beef Jerky – Nothing washes down fresh Alaskan salmon better than a mouthful of dried cow. Slant Shack Jerky is donating a Chef’s Choice starter pack of grass fed beef jerky to the winner this year. For jerky aficionados, this is the company with the nifty Build-a-Jerky feature on their site. And if you do decide to build a jerky, might I suggest the garlic rub. BONUS: Use “PRIMALAPPLE” when ordering for a 10% discount.

Coconut FlourTropical Traditions is a perennial giveaway favorite here at MDA (because, really, who can ever get enough coconut?). Winner will receive a 2 lb bag of coconut flour. Now you can make a sous vide coconut salmon jerky cake.

The Sous Vide Supreme, the Vacuum Sealer, the Alaskan Salmon, the Grass Fed Jerky, and a bag of coconut. That should be enough to get you in to the kitchen and cooking…

The Contest:

Create and upload a Primal recipe video to YouTube. Have you mastered the omelet? Are you an almond flour fiend? Maybe your salad is so mean, it can win a chili cookoff. If so, let the world in on your secrets. Grab your camcorder, 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 the complete Primal package listed above.

For an idea of what you can do, check out some of last year’s highlights, including spareribs, vegetable fritters, Primal nutella, coconut pancakes, and kale chips. And watch last year’s winning video, Skinless Gyoza:

The video needs to be an original video made for the purposes of this contest. Please title the video “Primal Blueprint Recipe:” followed by your own sub-title.

Upload your video to YouTube and then email me the link. I’ll publish select videos on Mark’s Daily Apple at the end of the month. 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:
