"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

Asian beef with vegetables and herbs

This is an amazing one-pot recipe.  I served over riced cauliflower but jasmine rice or roasted vegetables would be great too!

Go ahead and make it!

Note:  I love green onions and hate when they wilt in the refrigerator so I used the entire bunch.

Avocado stuffed burger with pancetta and drizzled with green goddess dressing on a Sweet Potato Bun

This recipe was inspired by the Avocado Madness Contest and got me to round 2.  I wanted to keep a Paleo theme and came up with this delicious recipe!  Go ahead and give it a try - It will be a winner at your house too!

It's a little time consuming but worth it!  The recipe starts by making the buns first!

Note: If you do not have a spiralizer you can use your food processor or a box grater and create the same bun by shredding.

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

Balsamic Braised Short Ribs

My husband loves short ribs and every time we go out to dinner and they are on the menu he wants to try them - just to check if they are better than mine!  I really wish he would stop doing that because he is always disappointed!  I try to tell him to order something else but he never listens...   

I have another great short rib recipe but made this one a little different and we really liked the balsamic glaze.

Tip: Buy a little extra as they are even better the next day!  Also, when at the butcher I like then a little smaller as they fit in the pan better.  If they only have the longer short ribs just ask them to cut in half and will gladly!

I stuffed with ground sirloin but you can use your favorite ground meat or even keep it all vegetables and some sweet potatoes!  (I may try it that way next week)

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!

These ribs are amazing.  Go ahead and get some of their sauce and make some ribs!

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs

We just love our Big Green Egg and since my husband has made Pulled Pork 3 weekends in a row I decided to change it up for Labor Day weekend and make some ribs!

Here is recipe for the rub! (this recipe is for 2 racks of ribs)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine together...  Rub the ribs, wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Cindy's Note:  I made this for 4 of us so I cut the ribs in half to make everyone an individual serving. You can keep it whole or cut it half.  It was also easier for the EGG.  I just love my Simply Organics Spices!

Boneless Short Ribs on the BGE

I was at Wholefoods deciding what to prepare for my crossfit friends coming over for dinner. I know my number 1 entertaining tip is to never test a new recipe but these are my workout buddies and we are always trying new paleo recipes. I saw boneless beef chuck short ribs. They’re strips of meat cut from the chuck section without a lot of surface fat and not a bone in sight—rib. They looked good but I have never prepared these before.

Normally when I use chuck I cook in the crock pot for the entire day to make sure the meat is tender. I was a little nervous so when I got home I marinated the meat in olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian herbs I had in my pantry and 4 cloves of garlic chopped.

We used The Big Green EGG® and dinner was a hit. Not only did I test a new main course recipe I also came up with a new dessert. The night was a hit…

I use my crockpot all year long and it especially comes in handy in the summer. I can enjoy the lake and my company while the food is doing its thing. I keep several sizes handy and this dish goes great for any season! Give my crockpot meaty cabbage a try!

These are similar to my stuffed cabbage but different!  These are more about the meat and a lighter sauce.  They are however both Paleo recipes for you to enjoy....

This is a new recipe that I woke up thinking about. I love Cubanella peppers and I had so many fresh vegetables in the refrigerator. This is a great paleo recipe and of course Italian! I called the recipe a Cubanella Garden Party because all of the vegetables came from my garden.

I hope you enjoy this light and favorable recipe. I made this for a girls day at the lake and made a salad on the side.! Very yummy stuffed peppers! :)

I have found myself to have daily visits to Joseph's Classic Market theses days and creating new recipes.

Not only do we have amazing markets here in Palm Beach Gardens but our farmers markets are spectacular spectacular and only 2 miles from my house each Sunday.  How perfect is that for me!  At the market I always go to Benders tent as they have everything I need and it's fresh.  The prices are great and it's per items so there is no waiting to weigh.  They had cubanella peppers 4 for $1.00.  Of course I got 4 and grilled 2 with our steak dinner.  Looking at the remaining 2 this dish came to me and I served it with sweet potato pasta!  YUMMY Paleo dinner....

Eggplant Parmesan wrapped Meatloaf

I have this weekly ritual. Cleaning out the refrigerator. I have been super busy cooking and creating new recipes that I found 1/2 red pepper, onions and miscellaneous mushrooms. Not to mention a couple of eggplants. I also had 1/2 pound of ground beef, ground pork and ground veal. I am sure it was left over from meatballs I made last week. So I was thinking about an easy meal to make with all of these ingredients. I love one pot meals and this meatloaf was perfect.

I never imagined eggplant parmesan and meatloaf in one dish but I am so glad this meal inspired me. It is a perfect paleo recipe and hearty meal. Of course Italian style!

You can just use ground beef or even ground chicken. All together I used 1 1/2 pounds of meat.

This is what I did!

Filet Mignon Fun Facts | Mobile Cuisine

https://mobile-cuisine.com/did-you-know/filet-mignon-fun-facts/
 
Tidbits about Filet mignon:   This most tender, lean, succulent yet elegant meat is from the small end of the tenderloin area of the animal, which is non-weight bearing and not toughened by daily exercise, resulting in extremely tender meat. The name is French for “cute filet” with “filet” meaning thick, boneless slice and mignon meaning “dainty.” ... French: tournedos, filet de bœuf.
 
No matter if I am grilling or sautéing this beautiful cut of beef; I always take it off between 135-140 degrees F.  That is a medium-rare temperature but remember it will continue to cook while it is resting.  Your family or guests may say, "I like my meat medium"  Do NOT over cook this meat.  I am not a rare beef eater but this tender meat is so delicate that you don't want to overcook.
