 Pork Cacciatore

  • Complexity: easy

Pork Cacciatore

Here is another amazing (if I may say so myself) one-pot Paleo Italian recipe!  OMG OMG OMG is all everyone was saying after each bite!  This is why I love to cook and entertain. We normally grill when we have company at the lake but I wanted to just relax in the sun with my girlfriend Pam and let the oven do the cooking.  What a big hit!  I served with sauteé spinach.

Cindy's Note: I used boneless pork shoulder and they came in 3 pound packages.   I picked up 2 because it really is better the next day!

To prepare on you BGE - Heat your grill to a medium temperature and set the covered pan in the center for 2 hours!

"Yaki" Beef Stir Fry

I received a shipment of samples from Bone Suckin' and decided to use the Yaki first for a stir fry.  We were over the top happy with this Yaki "Teriyaki" and I am serious. This is the best we have ever had and it's gluten free.  

I did make 1 chicken breast for me as I am not a big steak fan!  Enjoy xo

 

3 ingredient Kale Chips
  • Time: 20 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

3 ingredient Kale Chips

Kale chips are super easy to make or can be super easy to mess up!  We know that is true.  They are just so yummy...

Here is what you need to know to make the perfect crispy kale chips!

First take your kale and remove the ribs. You can easily do this by holding the bottom rib from the leaf with one hand and use the other hand to grip onto the rib and move your hand up the leaf separating the two from each other.  Next, either chop or tear the leaves into small pieces and place in your colander.  Rinse throughly then dry.  I like to lay paper towels down on my counter then create an even layer of the leaves.  Top with another layer of paper towels and press down.  You want the leaves dry before baking them into chips.  If they wet... they will burn!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!  xo Cindy

Baked Beef Kibbeh

Baked Beef Kibbeh

I know - I know - I am Italian.  However, we have Labanese friends and they would bring over pita bread, grape leaves and kibbeh.  So good!  I remember how my Nana's friend could take a large pieces of pita and rip it in 1/2 the long way so each person got one half of a large pita and made us an amazing sandwich.  Sometimes I wish i was that little girl in at my Nana's house!

I love lamb and that is the traditional way to make kibbeh but not everyone enjoys it so I decided to make it with beef and will put out a large platter to serve the kibbeh by adding grape leaves, hummus, tabouleh,  lettuce, cucumbers, feta cheese, olives and extra-virgin olive oil.

Enjoy

Best Paleo Sloppy Joes

At the lake during the summer it's easy to make a dish, get in the boat and head over to a friends house.  I get to have my granddaughter Brooke with me all summer so my dishes need to be kid approves.  

I decided to make sloppy joes then it was easy to wrap and just warm at our friends house.  These were a big hit and fed 5 adults and 6 kids.  There was about 2 tablespoons left in the pan!  

I love veal mixed with my meat as it really lightens up the texture and taste amazing.  You can also use pork or just all meat.  Of course, the kids just knew it was sloppy joes - They all loved it...  

My stomach does not do well with green bell peppers but you can certainly use them in this recipe.  I went for the red and yellow.  This is also a great dish to use your Cast Iron Pan!
