Coconut Marinated Short Ribs and Sautéed Kale

Boneless short ribs aren’t just for slow winter braises. Briefly thrown on the grill, boneless short ribs are also a delicious alternative to steak. The fatty marbling throughout keeps the ribs tender and flavorful. Grilled short ribs don’t necessarily need a marinade, but this one, made from coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, and lime is a great one to try.

It’s no secret around here that coconut milk is a much loved, keto supportive healthy fat. Used as the base for a marinade, coconut milk gives meat an extra boost of fat and also adds flavor. It does the same for kale, adding richness and slight sweetness that tones down kale’s natural bitterness.

Instant Pot Lamb and Sweet Potato Stew

The Instant Pot is a perfect appliance for stew, coaxing flavor and tenderness out of meat and vegetables in a short amount of time. Instead of the typical beef and white potato stew, this recipe uses lamb and sweet potatoes, plus a bunch of spices, for a richly flavorful and comforting meal.

The sweetness of the potatoes is perfect with the slightly gamey flavor of lamb. After a short time in the Instant Pot, both the meat and sweet potatoes melt in your mouth like butter. Cinnamon, coriander, cumin, garlic and ginger all punch up the flavor but don’t overwhelm the dish.

Lomo Saltado

Lomo Saltado turns an Asian stir-fry into a uniquely Peruvian meal. The recipe starts out in familiar stir-fry territory: thinly sliced steak cook with red onion, soy sauce and vinegar. But then tomatoes are added. And French fries. A fiery green sauce made from PRIMAL KITCHEN® Mayo,
jalapenos, cilantro, and lime finishes the dish, officially turning Lomo Saltado into a stir-fry like no other.

Lomo Saltado isn’t Lomo Saltado without the French fries. There’s just no way around it. For this recipe, the potatoes are fried in tallow, cooled, and then reheated before serving for the sake of the resistant starch. If you’re going to eat French fries, the ones here are probably your best bet. Eat them occasionally, in moderation, and enjoy every crispy, salty bite.

Green Goddess Chicken

A blend of heart-healthy avocado oil, vinegar, and zesty herbs and spices make PRIMAL KITCHEN® Green Goddess Dressing the perfect marinade for chicken. Chives, tarragon, parsley, savory and rosemary, plus black pepper and garlic, turn plain chicken breasts into a sensational meal. All you have to do is twist off the lid and pour on the flavor.

Green Goddess dressing isn’t the only secret weapon PRIMAL KITCHEN® is wielding against bland, dry chicken. The other secret ingredient in this marinade is PRIMAL KITCHEN® Mayo. Whisked into any chicken marinade, mayonnaise adds fat and flavor, two things that boneless, skinless chicken breasts can always use more of. Mayo coats the chicken, locking in flavor and moisture and turning out chicken breasts that are tender and flavorful.

Beef Rendang

Rich in spices and slow-cooked in coconut milk, Indonesian Beef Rendang has a lot in common with beef curries from other countries. You get healthy fat from the coconut milk, plus spice and herb based antioxidants in every bite. Not to mention unbelievable flavor. These are not shy ingredients: rendang is all about making a big, bold statement.

Imagine hot chile peppers, shallots, garlic, ginger, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, cloves and cinnamon—tamed only slightly by sweet, creamy coconut milk. The beef is braised in this intense fusion of flavors long enough to soak up all of the sauce. Rendang isn’t going to win any beauty contests, but when food tastes this good, who cares what it looks like?

Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork

Thanks to everyone’s new best friend, the Instant Pot, this BBQ pulled pork is on the table in two hours, with very little work from you. The BBQ sauce just might be the BBQ sauce you’ve always been searching for. It’s tangy, spicy, slightly sweet, and takes about 5 minutes to make. It’s easy to imagine brushing this sauce over brisket and grilled chicken, not just pulled pork.

The recipe for the BBQ sauce starts with blackstrap molasses for its depth of flavor and thick, syrupy consistency. Only a tablespoon, so the flavor of molasses doesn’t overwhelm the sauce, but you still get a nice dose of magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese. This BBQ sauce is yet another delicious way to work blackstrap molasses into your diet.
