What do you cook with Red Palm Oil?

I love Red Palm Oil as a diversifying fat in my diet. However, it has a very strong flavor that's hard to accommodate in many dishes. I know Africans use it a lot but their dishes are hard to replicate in America. I've read that it's good in eggs and I've tried that. What else can I do with it?

Keep doing your homework. West African-sourced red palm oil is sustainable.

I discovered rpo recently and since then I use it a lot. In the beggining it has a smell but at the end it gives and amazing taste to the food. I used it to cook cabbage, casserole, fry chicken, lentil soup, eggs ... I love it and I discovered it is very good for digestion (if someone suffer of constipation you would love the rp oil). Tomorrow I am planning to cook some beans and use it. It is a bit expensive but I combine it with coconat oil and I don't use too much...

Look into the ecological implications of using palm oil. The rainforest of South -East Asia is being destroyed and replanted with palm trees for harvesting oil. The orangutan is endangered as 90% of their habitat has been destroyed in the last 20 years. It's completely heartbreaking. There are so many other healthy oils to use. There is no need to use palm oil.

It's got a perfect flavor for curries. I usually do something like 1lbs grassfed ground beef, some coconut milk, turmeric, curry powder, salt, pepper, a diced onion, a diced tomato, half a teaspoon of cinnamon, a teaspoon of cocoa powder, hot peppers of your choice, paprika, cayenne pepper. It's sort of like a chilli, but more of a curry flavor.

Look into Brazilian cuisine from the Bahia state. They use red palm oil in their cooking. Here's a tasty recipe: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/bahia-style-shrimp-in-coconut-sauce but you should replace the annatto/corn oil with red palm.

My 14 year old daughter and I use red palm oil as a 'dipping sauce' for raw steak, I cut the steak into bite sized pieces, sprinkle a little sea salt on it, then we use chop sticks to dip the meat in some red palm oil and eat it. She brags to her friends about eating healthy and eating raw meat, she is on a competative cheer leading team.

I make a marinade for chicken with it. I leave the skin on the chicken, thighs or breasts. I forget all the ingredients but it's red palm oil, and I guess you could use any herbs you like, and put it in a bag with the chicken so you can coat it really well. then bake it for about 40 minutes. I got it out of a paleo cookbook.
