      Check out fastpaleo.com and paleopot.com (if you have a crockpot)
      Also, Mark has a book that's listed on this site about quick and easy meals, you can download it to a Kindle.

          Bacon and eggs is always a good standby. And crockpot meals can have as few as 3-4 ingredients, and are quite simple to throw together. I did one the other day with a rump roast, carrots, onions, and parsnips.

          Dice Monkey, I'm in Fredericksburg too. More accurately, Spotsy County, but with a Fredericksburg mailing address. Do you ever go to the farmer's market at Plank Road and Gordon Road? There's also a store near the Spotsy courthouse that sells meat, eggs, and produce from local farmers.

              Yep. If the meat is fatty enough, you can even skip the extra cooking fat and use whatever comes out of the meat.

              Easiest Version(Requires Pan, Burner, some kind of spoon/spatula): Ground beef, bag of frozen mixed veggies.
              More Flexible Version(Requires above, plus... A KNIFE!!!): Meat of your choice, chopped into bite-sized chunks, veggies of your choice, cut up into suitable size pieces. Use whatever spices you like.

              This is my default/go-to dinner when I don't have a lot of time.

                Steak: hot pan, 5 mins per side (or less)
                Veggies: 375 oven, toss with olive oil and salt, stick in oven for 30+ minutes
                Whole chicken: 350 oven on rack in pan for 1-1.5 hours (depending on size).
                350 oven on rack works for most large cuts of meat, time will depend on animal and size, there are basic rules of how many minutes per lb, google should know.

                  Pork chops: I like to add liquid smoke (only ingredients should be smoke and possibly water) and fresh ground pepper. Put a few drops on both sides of the pork chop, then pan fry in a bit of fat or you can BBQ it. Pan fry some asparagus in a bit of fat, with some Himalayan pink salt.

                  Steak: Get a fatty cut, season with Himalayan pink salt and pepper, pan fry or BBQ. After cooled, slice and drape over mixed greens and other veggies like cucumber, peppers, etc. I also enjoy adding sliced boiled eggs, some crumbled bacon and some feta cheese. I really enjoy it with either of these simple homemade ceasar dressing: Stacey's Healthy Kitchen: Killer Caesar Salad or Delicious Real Caesar Salad Dressing (Primal).

                  These are my go to meals.

                        I have to agree with the crockpot idea. Crockpots are cheap (no, seriously cheap) and you can just toss a piece of meat in them with a little broth and some spices (whatever you want), then set it to "low" before you head out the door to work. Come back at the end of the day and it's super tender meat with no work. Cook some extra and there's lunch for a couple of days.

                        Another one I rely on a lot is just cooking up a hamburger patty (grill, pan, whatever is easy) and topping it with a fried egg or two. Super simple and really good.

                        Another one (if you're eating dairy) - season a boneless chicken breast and cook it in the oven at 350F. When it's done (165F - I use a probe that has a lead out the oven door - also super cheap and keeps me from screwing up), put a slice of provolone cheese on it and put it back in the oven for a minute or two. While the cheese is melting, slice an avocado, then take the chicken out of the oven and cover it with the avocado slices. It's actually more complicated to explain than it is to just do it, and it's my (non-Primal) boyfriend's favorite dish.
                        Durp.

                            Simplest paleo dish on the planet: Paleo Spaghetti. 1 spaghetti squash, 1 lb ground critter, 1 jar paleo-approved marinara sauce. Cut spaghetti squash in half, bake at 350F for 45 mins, remove from oven. While it cools, brown your ground critter, add sauce to warm. String out your squash, combine with meat & sauce. Voila! Dinner.
