Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

2 Meat, 2 Pepper Chili

Thanks to the good folks at Paleohacks for today’s recipe.

This rich keto chili is made with two types of beef and slow cooked in bone broth for stick-to-your-ribs heartiness. This rich and simple crockpot recipe combines sirloin steak, ground bison, sweet bell peppers, and smoky ancho chiles for a recipe that is anything but ordinary. Best of all, this chili can be prepped ahead of time for a meal that reheats in a pinch throughout a busy week.

Instant Pot Oxtail Stew

People don’t talk about oxtail stew these days, but it’s a true Primal-worthy classic. With an arguably richer taste than beef and more succulent feel when cooked for stew or soup, oxtail might just become a new favorite. But the real difference (and reason behind the appealing stewed texture) is the ample connective tissue—an incredible source of collagen for the benefit of skin, hair, joint health, performance and more. (Since we used bone broth here in lieu of water or regular stock, this recipe is one of the best you can make for collagen content.) You’ll enjoy warming up with this gelatinous, flavorful and hearty dish on a late winter night. And you might consider making an extra batch: it tastes even better the next day.

Primal Sloppy Joes

Nothing says comfort food quite like sloppy joes. The go-to of potlucks and family dinners for generations, they’ve got the tangy and hearty flavor even kids gravitate to. Many versions, including canned sauces, however, contain added sugars or even high fructose corn syrup—such a shame, since the basic ingredients of sloppy joes need no sweeteners when done right.

Bring this classic back to your healthy menu with this recipe for delicious sloppy joe meat sauce—and the grain-free buns to deliver all the goodness. Enjoy!

Instant Pot Short Ribs with Sesame Ginger Slaw

This meal adds new flavors to the leftover short ribs from last week’s comfort food recipe—and pairs the ribs with a colorful slaw that offers a boost of probiotic magic.

It’s an easy, quick meal that balances the richness of short ribs with fish sauce and balsamic vinegar with the fresh crunchiness of a slaw sweetened (slightly) by our popular Primal Kitchen® Sesame Ginger Dressing. It’s a colorful and flavorful choice for a midweek dinner or a large dinner party.

Instant Pot Short Ribs With Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

Short ribs are an underappreciated cut of meat. Slow cooking brings out their full potential, but the added time is worth the wait. But…how about all the goodness without the wait? With an Instant Pot, you get the best of both worlds. Juicy, succulent and flavorful, short ribs can be paired with any number of vegetables for stews (often a more fork-tender choice than traditional stew meat) or served separately with salads or sides. We’ve got two recipes highlighting the versatility of short ribs. (Check back next week for the second….)

For this recipe, the ribs are paired with sweet potatoes and spinach for nutrient-rich one-pot meal. And we’ve sized the recipe for a double batch of short ribs with instructions for when and how to set them aside. The result? The ease of two delicious dinners with less time and prep.

Serve up a slice with your favorite low-carb comfort sides tonight! This keto-friendly recipe offers all the nutrition and taste with none of the grains and extra carbs.
