I had a half pound hanger steak, cubed sauteed in coconut oil and raw pasutre butter, onion, portabello; 3 eggs cooked in rendered duck fat; 10 shrimp sauteed in the left over beef grease and added raw maca powder an red wine, long and slow to made a reduction, all over steamed spinach and red chard; 2 glasses pinot noir.

Needless to say I spoiled myself. Thought you could all appreciate. Anyone else have an awesome meal to share?

Haha, I am also 20! Nice! From my perspective the "throw it all in the oven" recipes are way easier than stovetop, also using cheaper cuts of meat that you can cook "low and slow" is way less fussy than trying to get a perfectly cooked rare steak (I'm also a foodie with history of restaurant work, so I'm picky too!). If you peel a bunch of veggies, cube them, and cover the lot with chunks of butter, delicious side. Any tough meat cooked in liquid with spices will taste amazing. Beef in stock with cinnamon, cumin, and chipotle..pork with cinnamon, apples, nutmeg, ginger...you get the idea!

I'm 20 and I cook 95% of my meals every week :) Blogs are a great place to find recipes and get ideas! Also, I never cook unless I can get 2-3 meals out of it (that's the best thing I've figured out since I've started cooking for myself!)

Put butter in pan with herbs, onion, garlic, pepper, sea salt, stuff like that. Fry a little and add water and tongue. Cook it for (about) three hours. (As if you are making broth). Ready when the tip of the tongue is soft. Get it out and peel the skin off. Cut in slices. Use cooking water as a base for soup or sauce for the tongue.

I didn't know how to cook until I got domesticated, and had to learn fast. I'm a new omnivore, so it's trial and error for me. We all start somewhere. :) Another fail-proof recipe is to throw some chicken and veggies (onions and peppers and mushrooms and carrots are very flavorful) into some folded up aluminium foil with some fat, then bake for about 25-30 minutes at about 350. The foil keeps it from drying out as well as trapping the fat in there and flavoring the veggies. Easy peasy, and fast, too. :D Good luck!

Start with 'stove top' recipes; they're easier. Like, pan-fry some chicken or fish or burgers until desired done-ness (to keep it moist, I sear it high-heat til brown, then lower temp, cover it with a lid until cooked through. Give it about five minutes or so, then cut into it; if it's still raw, keep cooking. There's no cook time: just cook until done. :P) then throw some veggies into the fatty pan and sautee' until tender enough. Zucchini and peppers and onions and kale or spinach cook up super fast, and taste delish, and soak up fat like a sponge. Keep practicing and you'll learn. :)

Why do people cook with raw butter? It's expensive and ends up the same as cooked butter... 6 pieces of pastured bacon, baked, along with a half head of purple cabbage sauteed in the grease and some Kerry Gold and MCT oil, with an avocado. Before that, 4 oz of raw sockeye salmon with more avocado.

I hadn't eaten since dinner the previous night and broke the fast with a cheesesteak sans bread.

I had bought sandwich steak this morning on the managers special ("buy by" date was today) -worked out to just $3 for a pound. I marinated the meat for about 30 minutes in a combination of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and black pepper. Sauteed 2 onions, red and yellow bell peppers and sliced baby bella mushrooms in kerrygold butter. In a separate pan cooked the steak and melted sharp provolone cheese over it. Combined the meat and veggies and split with my wife.

Later in the evening snacked on some coconut flakes and then my better half fried up some of the abundance of farmers market eggs we've been neglecting in the fridge this week. I had two / had to.

I went to a Brazilian steakhouse and had beef until I couldn't eat anymore (all you can eat). Mostly top sirloin and boneless ribeye, but tried all the beef cuts. Had a few vegetables and some alcohol too.

I wish I could eat somewhere like that everyday where the whole restaurant is focused on meat instead of bread, pasta, etc. And they actually know how to prepare it well - not some lean dried out cuts of meat like you get at most restaurants.

If you are paleo and have never been to one of these places you are truly missing out.

(Sorry, that was last night but thought it was worth sharing.)

Lamb chops marinated in balsamic, rosemary, and garlic, fried in extreme amounts of coconut oil/ghee, served with steamed kale and arugula.

I am currently eating the leftovers for lunch and never been happier.

Just had to edit this with last night's dinner:

Fried 5 slices of pastured pork belly bacon. Fried chopped spinach, cabbage, mushrooms, onions, and about 1/2 pound of leftover grass-fed ground beef in the bacon grease. Threw it together with the bacon, some spices, and shredded white cheddar (grass-fed!). Tasted like a bacon cheeseburger pizza. Amazing.

Chicken tacos, in lettuce shells. Leftover meat from a whole roasted chicken, combined with my mole spice (long list, but the basic idea is cocoa powder, cumin, chipotle powder, ground sesame seeds...), red onion, and bell peppers. Eaten with homemade salsa, lime wedges, and a whole avocado.

Served this with my sweet potato fries, homemade by coating with egg whites. You may have heard this trick from psycho-anti-fat-ers, but it actually is simply the best way to mimic french fries at home if you don't want to sit around shallow frying batches in lard (time consuming if you don't have a deep frier). If you make fries just by coating with loads of oil, I find that the edges never get that crispiness. This way seems to work very well though!

2 sweet potatoes, sliced into matchsticks 2 egg whites seasoning (cajun, curry, whatever you fancy)

-Preheat the oven to 375 -Whip the egg whites into a froth. Keep whipping until you get "soft peaks" ie, your bowl looks like shampoo bubbles, you can lift your whisk out of the froth and pull up "peaks". -Coat the sweet potatoes in egg white. This will give them a crispy coating that will be just like fries you get from nasty oil vats. -Arrange the fries in a single layer on a baking sheet. I know, a pain, but this way they will all be crispy goodness. -Bake for 25-40 minutes (varies wildly depending on your thickness of fries. check as they bake, flipping once or twice)

Marinated chicken drumsticks with carrot and spinach mash. The mash also had some bone broth mixed in. Then I had some strawberries with custard. The custard was made with 2 eggs and a small amount of maple syrup and vanilla essence.

I didn't know how to cook until I got domesticated, and had to learn fast. I'm a new omnivore, so it's trial and error for me. We all start somewhere. :) Another fail-proof recipe is to throw some chicken and veggies (onions and peppers and mushrooms and carrots are very flavorful) into some folded up aluminium foil with some fat, then bake for about 25-30 minutes at about 350. The foil keeps it from drying out as well as trapping the fat in there and flavoring the veggies. Easy peasy, and fast, too. :D Good luck!

Start with 'stove top' recipes; they're easier. Like, pan-fry some chicken or fish or burgers until desired done-ness (to keep it moist, I sear it high-heat til brown, then lower temp, cover it with a lid until cooked through. Give it about five minutes or so, then cut into it; if it's still raw, keep cooking. There's no cook time: just cook until done. :P) then throw some veggies into the fatty pan and sautee' until tender enough. Zucchini and peppers and onions and kale or spinach cook up super fast, and taste delish, and soak up fat like a sponge. Keep practicing and you'll learn. :)

I'm 20 and I cook 95% of my meals every week :) Blogs are a great place to find recipes and get ideas! Also, I never cook unless I can get 2-3 meals out of it (that's the best thing I've figured out since I've started cooking for myself!)

Haha, I am also 20! Nice! From my perspective the "throw it all in the oven" recipes are way easier than stovetop, also using cheaper cuts of meat that you can cook "low and slow" is way less fussy than trying to get a perfectly cooked rare steak (I'm also a foodie with history of restaurant work, so I'm picky too!). If you peel a bunch of veggies, cube them, and cover the lot with chunks of butter, delicious side. Any tough meat cooked in liquid with spices will taste amazing. Beef in stock with cinnamon, cumin, and chipotle..pork with cinnamon, apples, nutmeg, ginger...you get the idea!

I was lazy & tired, and not that hungry. So I just grabbed some lox & almond butter. This is my safety meal, that keeps me from straying from Paleo.

Tonight, however! New York Steak, salad, and roasted veggies (carrots, onions, and zucchini)!

Chicken breasts baked with sage, prosciutto, and fontina, then covered in a mushroom, wine, stock, and cream sauce, with sides of mashed potato and a couple spoonfuls of corn.

Tonight is lamb kebabs marinaded in yogurt and spices, with tabbouli sans bulgar and a bit of homemade hummus. Yeah, yeah, beans aren't paleo, but it's the first time in about 6 months.

I made my husband chicken tacos, so I took a chicken breast for myself and fried it in coconut oil with a whole zucchini.
