Contest: Share a Primal Recipe Link

The Prize:

What’s better than ghee? 100% organic ghee. And where do you find 100% organic ghee? Pure Indian Foods. According to PIF, they provide the only 100% organic ghee available in the market that has been made using the milk of pastured cows grazing on rapidly growing green grass in spring and fall only, when their milk is most nutritious. Pure Indian Foods will be sending one case (12 jars) of 7.8 oz. jars of Grassfed Organic Ghee (retail value over $130), and one Assorted Sampler Pack containing one 7.8 oz. jar of each of their six Herbal/Spice infused ghee flavors (retail value $89.95) to the lucky winner of this contest.

Check out Pure Indian Foods on Facebook and take advantage of this special offer: use discount code “ORGANIC-GHEE” when checking out and receive $5 off any order over $25. Valid until 9/30/2011.

The Contest:

Every Saturday I publish a Primal Blueprint recipe, but this Saturday is different. This Saturday I want you to point the Mark’s Daily Apple community to a delicious, must-try recipe you’ve found in the interwebs. In other words, include a link in the comment board below to a Primal meal you recommend. The link needs to be to another site, not MDA, and the recipe needs to be decidedly Primal; no vegetable oil fried wheat cakes topped with sugary sugar. Also, please include the name and/or a brief description of the dish.

Examples: – Paleo Beef Curry

and – How to Make Kombucha from Scratch

Feel free to link to your own blog if you’re a Primal foodie blogger.

By the end of this contest the comment board will be a resource for the community, with (hopefully!) hundreds of links to Primal bloggers around the world that are dishing out healthy meal ideas.

Note: All comments with links have to be manually approved by a moderator before they are published in the comment board. Your patience is appreciated.

The Deadline:

September 19, 10:00 a.m. PST. You’ve got the weekend to find and publish your favorite Primal recipe link in the comment board.

Who is Eligible:

Anyone in the world that knows how to copy and paste a Primal recipe link to a comment board.

How a Winner is Chosen:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants. Check back on Monday to see all the submissions!

To track all the contests visit the 2011 Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge Contest Page for daily updates.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I’ve been REALLY trying to move into eating offal, and was searching out some chicken liver pate recipes the other day to dip my toe into this. I searched dozens, and this one looked the best to me!

  2. These mussels taste so rich and satisfying, but they are inexpensive and easy to make.

  3. Here is a great step-by-step recipe for making Kim Chi.

    And for the fish sauce it calls for here is some information on a Paleo One as well as a recipe:

  5. Coconut Flour Orange Cake w/Coconut Oil Frosting–a yummy and Primal dessert for that special occasion!

    Catalina wrote on September 18th, 2011
    • That was my first Primal baking success- that cake is fantastic!! The icing was kind of a fail for me, though. lol

  6. Thai Curry Coconut Curry Stew (about half way down the page);jsessionid=216D209F5C35E2729AAF8CF438AC93AB.hydra?id=1498939&pageNo=4

    A favorite I come back to time and again, particularly in winter. A stewy blend of chicken, curry, coconut milk, veggies and peanut butter (great without peanut butter for a change of pace as well). Hearty enough that spooning over a bed isn’t really needed, but when I do, I choose riced cauliflower.

    iJack wrote on September 18th, 2011

    One of my all-time favorites from Sarah Fragoso’s website. I have a few recipes I’ve created too, such as Thai Red Curry Marinated Chicken Breasts with Asian Slaw, but I don’t have them published on the web so I have no links to provide. I’m always willing to share recipes I make, though, so feel free to message me if interested.

  12. Haha well Mark I figure since everyone else is sharing my recipes, I will share one of my own as well lol. Here is a little different approach to Guacamole where I grilled the avocado and roasted all the peppers first, it came out amazing. Hope you like and maybe try.

    George Bryant wrote on September 18th, 2011
    • I can’t wait to get a grill! This is gonna be the first recipe I make when I do! It looks soo good.

  13. I couldn’t decide which is my favorite, so I’ll post them both.

    Pumpkin Pie Bread

    Primal Beef Stew

    Neither of these last long around here.

    This is for Puerto Rican Pernil (pork shoulder)

    Its not from a primal or paleo web site but it deff fits into both.
    Since my father is PR, and we always had this stuff on the holidays and such I always make sure to bring back a special like this once every month or so. NOT TO MENTIon that you can do amazing things with the left overs like this..
    I would just sub the veg oil for any other oil you would like thats friendly on your plan ( even bacon fat NUM YUMMY! )

    Dont worry if you are not use to eating puerto rican food, this is a good choice to start.

  17. Larabars are my favorite but a bit expensive, when I looked up how to make them and realized they are SUPER easy to make, I told myself I would never buy them again.

    Here’s a link, there are many links out there, this one with the lemon was YUMMY!!!

    West African Chicken stew. Meat and nut fat what could be better?
    (although I”m sure most of us would sub almond butter for the peanut butter)

    Nate wrote on September 18th, 2011
  26. – Roasted Turkey Breast and Asparagus. Linked because it is the simplest recipe I could find a quick link for for some roasted asparagus. I usually throw in some fresh garlic with mine. And that turkey breast aint bad either.

  27. Italian Style Stuffed Peppers

    Made on: Saturday, September 17, 2011
    Approx cost: $16.00
    Lasted for 3 meals for 2 people
    Recipe Source: (modifiers: I used cheap ground beef, coconut oil, tomatoes from the garden but I figured their retail cost at $0.75 each, and no basil cuz my plant is languishing)

  28. Here is one of my favorite salads. My small town grocery always has organic celery, so I went in search of recipes that use the crunchie veggie.

  29. From my small town grocery: organic celery and organic apples. This recipe goes great with everything and I sometimes eat it for breakfast or a snack. CURRIED WALDORF SALAD.

  31. I loved the chicken livers my mom made when I was a kid. Of course, she made them in wheat flour and shortening! I modified her recipe the other night and they smelled and tasted just as good as I remember. Two bonuses: they were cheap, and my 6-year old liked them!

  33. The first original recipe by Bonnie at The Naked Kitchen almost one year ago. And with so many ways to make it you’ll never be bored! Slice, dice, throw together. Come back in 45 to an amazing tasting meal and an even better smelling kitchen. :-)

    “Sweet Potato Lasagna”

  35. Proof that bacon makes everything better: Bacon and Tomato Guacamole. I’ve corrupted vegetarians with this.

  36. So many comments already, it will be hard to find the good ones. For the “runners-up” I have a suggestion: make your own ghee.

    Here’s a ghee recipe that has worked well for me in the past:

  37. — Egg Fu Young with Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Chile Sauce (of course swap out the 3 tablespoons groundnut oil to something more Grok approved)
