I've been having the same meals: bun-less burgers, steak, "tacos" (inside lettuce cups), zucchini spaghetti, and stew. It's getting boring.

What are your favorite recipe's to spice up the paleo kitchen?

yes, or you can marinade the steak briefly it w/orange juice, lime juice, cumin, oregano, garlic...and have a really awesome carne asada. proportions in the marinade dont matter much...and it only takes 3-4 minutes to cook on each side. slice diagonally across the grain. ceviche is another easy to make paleo dish.

My go-to is similar, without the rice. I saute ground beef with onion and garlic, add whichever spices sound good, and serve it over cabbage. Raw cabbage for my husband and son, sauteed crisp-tender for me.

Pardon the self promotion, but these really are worth sharing, and will make you wonder why you ever ate corn tortillas!

Poblano peppers stuffed with taco meat. Topped with cheese if you you are okay with dairy. The peppers and melted cheese are a nice change from the lettuce wraps and shredded cheese version

I like keeping things simple: meat or seafood + veggies.

Some of my favorite go-to recipes that probably take no more than 30-45 minutes to prepare/cook:

A few strips of Applegate Farms Sunday bacon and grass-fed beef liver sauteed with onions and mushrooms in the bacon fat.

Beef/bison rib-eye pan-fried in coconut oil with a side of chopped carrots and broccoli sauteed in coconut oil seasoned with turmeric + paprika.

Chilean sea bass/wild salmon pan-fried in butter with a side of chopped zucchini and crimini mushrooms seasoned with salt and garlic powder.

My mom makes a dish where she cooks some ground pork, covers it in marinara sauce (I use Rao's homemade) and folds it into some scrambled eggs to make a type of "spaghetti meat sauce omelet."

Eggs + bacon with chopped baby red potatoes, mushrooms and kale cooked in bacon fat.

Meat or seafood + oven-baked sweet potato fries (cut sweet potatoes into strips, cover in garlic olive oil, season with salt, pepper and paprika, then cover in Kerrygold butter when it's out of the oven).

Pan-seared Ahi tuna cooked in coconut oil or butter + lemon juice (where it's still raw in the middle), seasoned with Bragg's Sprinkle seasoning, served with some bay scallops cooked in butter.

Peeled shrimp + chopped squid tubes sauteed with red onions, orange bell peppers and shallots in coconut oil, seasoned with garlic powder and paprika.

Ground beef/bison/lamb sauteed with onions + bell peppers in coconut oil, seasoned with garlic, sea salt, and crushed red pepper.

I also have a recipe blog epaleocookbooks.tumblr.com where I post my different paleo recipes. I particularly like the almond-crusted mahi mahi over lemon asparagus and the brusselsprouts with mustard, bacon and mushrooms.

sweet potato chili, make normal chili but with sweet taters instead of beans, you also get a bonus dimension of flavor from the taters too. Stiry frys and curries are a good easy dinner as well, just throw everything in a pot with some seasonings and put it on top of cauliflower "rice"

Also don't forget your seafood!!! We make sure to have fish fairly often to break up the beef monotony

I keep a recipe blog, and I have been posting photos of some meals on the blog FB page. You can find them in photos under "Paleo/Primal Meals". Lots of good ideas for simple meals there, and lots of specific recipes on the blog itself! https://www.facebook.com/tummyrumblr

My favorite paleo recipe as of late is to pan fry some skirt steak with sweet potatoes and chimichurri.

I love, love, love Melissa Joulwan's Moroccan Meatballs with her fouscous. I've made it for just us with lots of leftovers and quadrupled the recipe for a big crowd.

I like to make Thai curry about once a week. This recipe is a really good starting point (I use a different local curry paste, though, and some chili oil to spice it up) and so easy to modify based on what you have on hand.

http://everydaypaleo.com/2011/04/20/red-or-green-thai-curry/#more-2090

My favorite combination is shrimp, scallops, broccoli, peppers, carrots, water chestnuts and thai basil. A lot of Asian-inspired dishes lend themselves well to paleo eating.

Beanless chili is another winner if you're okay with nightshades.

This is really easy, not much of a recipe, but I am lazy cook so it's a go-to meal for me (and easy for me to digest). Ground beef or lamb with herbs/spices. 1/2 cup white rice. Take a romaine leaf, spoon in some rice and some meat. Wrap it up and eat. Repeat as necessary.
