Beef and Cabbage Curry

Curry is one of our favorite spices that we’ve found since finding paleo—our spicy beef curry recipe is a big hit, but we wanted to pack in some vegetables as well. By slicing our cabbage with a mandolin, we effectively created “noodles” with the cabbage that really hit the spot.

Bacon Egg Salad

Egg salad is another one of those dishes that I grew up uncertain about. I liked the idea of egg salad, but the ingredients–specifically, the mayo–always made me shiver. Store-bought mayo just grosses me out. Always has. Probably always will. This egg salad skips mayo (homemade or otherwise) all together and add bacon. Bacon makes everything better. We hope you enjoy it!

Tom Kha Gai ต้มข่าไก่ (Thai Coconut Soup)

This weekend we had the pleasure of doing some cooking, and hanging out, with our friend Russ of the Domestic Man. We cooked for almost a solid 5 hours, and came up with some great recipes to share with you all as a result.

This first piece is a Thai soup based off of what I had ordered from a local Thai restaurant, Tom Kha Hed (ต้มข่าไก่). This soup, sometimes also known as Tom Kha Gai, Kai or just Tom Kha, is literally “chicken galangal soup.” We forwent the chicken itself, but one could easily add chicken and or prawns for a heavier soup.

Lemon-Garlic Chicken

Lemon-garlic chicken is a simple and classic dish, but many recipes today involve bread crumbs. This is a simplified, paleo-friendly version that results in a golden and juicy roast bird.

When I was a little girl, my dad always roasted the chicken with the breast down for the first half of it’s total cook time. He said that doing so would help prevent the breast from getting too dry. I never questioned his logic, nor did I ever pay attention to how pretty or ugly the bird came out. All I cared about was whether it was tasty or not, and it usually was.

So, while preparing to make this lemon-garlic chicken recipe, I decided I would give Dad’s way a try. I’ll admit, this bird won’t make it to the cover of Better Homes and Gardens or Paleo Mag. But it was juicy and full of subtle lemon and garlic flavors.

Fancy Homemade Burgers

Are you ready for fancy homemade burgers? We hope so! We love burgers, all kinds of burgers. Regular beef burgers. Salmon burgers. Bacon burgers. Matt and Stacy’s 50/50 burgers. Bison burgers. I could go on, but you might get bored. So, instead, I’m just going to tell you about our latest experiment so we can get down to business: sharing with you a recipe for fancy homemade burgers!

A couple weekends ago, I was hankering for burgers but Brent was simply not in the mood for more beef. (Admittedly, it had been a week of steak, chili and roast beef.)  So, we were staring at the selections of meats available at our local Whole Foods, hungry and indecisive. Finally, he grabbed ground pork, ground veal, and ground lamb. My eyes lit up. I couldn’t wait to get home and put them together.

This recipe seems “fancy” because, growing up in my house, veal and lamb were special foods for special occasions. But these fancy homemade burgers are actually quite simple to make! We hope you’ll enjoy this casual and delicious new twist on an old favorite.
