Sweet Potato Chili

This thick and hearty chili is slightly smoky and sweet, with a spice level that can be tailored to your taste. Borrowing a genius trick from our sweet potato pasta sauce recipe, thin strips of sweet potato are peeled into the chili. This is an easy way to add sweet potato to all sorts of dishes, as thin strips of sweet potato cook quickly and easily blend in with other ingredients.

With a simple list of ingredients and short simmering time, this chili is meant to be a convenient weeknight dinner. But do yourself a favor by cooking this recipe on the weekend, with plans to eat the chili for dinner later in the week. Chili is a meal that’s meant to be eaten as leftovers. It usually tastes better the second or third day, thickening up and becoming more flavorful.

Taco Salad with Edible Cheddar Bowls

Taco salad made from seared steak, avocado, tomato, shredded lettuce, and creamy chipotle dressing is delicious without any embellishment. But if you happen to have cheddar cheese in the refrigerator and a few extra minutes to grate it and bake it, then why not make an edible cheddar bowl?

Cheddar bowls are crispy and salty and fun to eat. They can be big or small, for main course salads or appetizers. Best of all, these bowls are made from just one ingredient: cheese. If you tolerate dairy, then cheese bowls (or chips) are a tasty occasional snack.

Grilled Beef Satay

Satay is often served as an appetizer, but it makes a fantastic main course when served with a rich, creamy satay sauce and crisp raw veggies on the side.

In this Primal version of beef satay, sugar is skipped entirely in both the marinade and the satay sauce. It isn’t missed, with coconut milk and macadamia nuts adding plenty of natural sweetness. The meat gets its intense flavor from soaking just 1 hour in a richly seasoned marinade that is sweet, salty and deliciously pungent. The mellow macadamia satay sauce served on the side balances the bold flavors of the meat, although giving the sauce a good, spicy kick is essential—without it, the sauce isn’t nearly as good.

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.
