Cooking for the week
One of the things that make it hard to follow a paleo lifestyle and diet is that you have to prepare your food. You know get some ingredients put them together in some tasty semblance and cook it. For some that's a crazy notion! Swome folks are just wicked busy and can't find time to cook each day. Let me say, I understand when 'life' gets in the way of preparing quality food. One of the things I've done to help with that is to pick my least busy day and prepare several meals ahead of time. Plan which ones you want on what days you want to have them and pop the ones you're planning for later in the week into the freezer (just remember to take them out in time to thaw) then voila one less thing to worry about during the week. If you prepare food for the week please share how you go about it, I think we would love to hear how you do it!
Recipe - Steak Dry Rub…Really good! This recipe is from everydaypaleo.com. I made this for 4 pounds of steak this Sunday and I have a bunch left over!
- 1/4 cup smoked paprika
- 3 tablespoons cumin
- 1/4 cup chili powder
- 2 tablespoons Mexican oregano
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- Sea salt to taste
- Olive oil brushed onto outside of steak
- Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a large bowl. Place each steak directly into the dry rub mixture and make sure each side is well coated, rubbing the dry rub into the stead. Let the steaks sit for at least 30 minutes. Coat each side with a bit of olive oil before the steaks hit the grill. We used top sirloin but this dry rub is great on rib eyes and flank steak too!!
