Happy Monday, everybody. I’m welcoming you to my backyard today with one of my all-time Primal (and keto) favorites: grilled steak. It doesn’t get much better than a juicy New York strip hot off the grill. Throw in a generous side of broccolini and some steak sauce (I happen to know a good one), and that’s dinner for me.
Grilling a steak isn’t hard work, but a few things can make a big difference for the end result. Check out the video below to see how I do it.Read More
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and we know many of you will be celebrating with friends and family. To that end, we’ve got a perfect addition to your Primal and Primal-keto menu: the cowboy burger. With tender portobello mushroom caps, grass-fed beef, bacon, BBQ flavor (you know we’ll be using our very own Primal Kitchen® Classic BBQ Sauce), crispy onions, cheddar and more, it’s so much more than your average burger. Enjoy—and have a Happy (and Healthy) Memorial Day, everyone!Read More
We’re calling this bad boy the “Big Meat” Burger not just because it’s a half pound of thick, juicy beef (although that’s plenty of reason). With two beef patties, two cheese slices, pickles, shredded lettuce and our own “special sauce”—a.k.a. Primal Kitchen® Thousand Island Dressing, you might just be thinking of another “Big M–” burger now. (Wink.)
While we might be channeling some Big Memories here, fast food’s got nothing on this Primal Giant. With omega-3 rich grass-fed beef, aged cheddar, healthy monounsaturated fat based Primal Kitchen dressing, and a low-carb, grain-free Unbun, you’ll enjoy all the savory goodness you remember…with none of the guilt. And don’t forget to enter the giveaway (details below) for an amazing package of Primal Kitchen and Unbun goodies.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
