Recipe of the week:

Paleo Chili

 Warm up to this classic chilli recipe (without the beans of course!)

  • 2 lbs ground buffalo
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2-4 Tbs fat (I use rendered pork fat)
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes (I use organic such as Muir Glen) 796ml
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes 796ml
  • 1 cup chopped organic mushrooms (browned in organic butter)
  • 6 strips pastured pork bacon (cooked up and chopped)
  • 4 Tbs chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  1. Brown ground buffalo with chopped onion and chopped garlic, in fat.
  2. Then add chopped tomatoes, chile powder, oregano, cumin, and salt, cooked bacon, cooked mushrooms.
  3. Add water, then simmer the mixture for at least two hours, until the meat is very tender and the tomatoes pretty much cook into the sauce.
  4. Four hours is not too much, but check to make sure it does not go dry.
  5. The better the chile powder you use, the more sensational the stew.
  6. You can also prepare in a crocpot with stew meat!

Serve with a salad

ENJOY! 🙂

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken mmmmmmmmmm…..

  • 2 x 2 tbsp organic butter
  • About 1 Kg organic free range chicken cut in chunks;
  • 2 tsp garam masala;
  • 2 tsp paprika;
  • 2 tsp ground coriander;
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger;
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder (adjust to taste);
  • 1 cinnamon stick;
  • 6 cardamon pods;
  • 1 can of tomato puree (you can easily puree your own tomatoes if they are meaty enough);
  • 3/4 cup organic coconut milk;
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice;

    1. Heat a pan, add the first 2 tbsp of butter and stir-fry the chicken chunks. You can cook them in 2 batches if your pan is too small.
    2. Remove the chicken from the pan.
    3. Put the second 2 tbsp of butter and slowly heat the spices for a minute or two until you can smell the aroma.
    4. Put the chicken back in the pan and stir so you mix in all the spices with the chicken.
    5. At this point, add the tomatoes and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir from time to time.
    6. Add the coconut milk and lemon juice and let it simmer for another 5

At this point you say; what a bout the rice? I say; make some cauliflower rice! Or just eat it out of the bowl with a nice side salad 🙂

ENJOY! 🙂

Paleo Cookies  (That can pass as Christmas Cookies!)

I promised the Fitters a Baking recipe that was Primal for the season.  🙂

  • 2 cups raw honey
  • 2 cups ground walnuts
  • 4 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger/cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit chopped (organic cranberries (no sugar), dates, raisins etc…GET CREATIVE!)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Lightly grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper.

Warm honey in a saucepan. Let mixture cool slightly. Sift together flour and spices.

Place honey in mixing bowl; gradually add flour mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in dried chopped fruit.

Roll dough about 1/4-inch thick on a floured board; cut into squares and rectangles with a pastry wheel or sharp knife. (If you prefer, you can also make drop cookies, dropping the dough by teaspoonful.

Bake ten minutes.

Makes four dozen. Enjoy!

I don’t have a picture of these yet, when you bake these send in your pictures, I would love to post!
