CFN -That is some hot flesh I’m looking at and I’m not talking about Paleo Princess Kristin Blasiak as she delivers the beef with this edition of her column on the joys and recipes of Paleo eating and lifestyle!
The King of steaks graced our plates and palettes tonight.
There is something uber delicious about any kind of meat that is served with the bone in, must be that extra flavour and tenderness. Cuts like this require the smallest amount of effort, just some salt and pepper and throw it right on the grill until it reaches your desired doneness.
Of course you can always add a marinade or a bbq sauce while grilling, when does that ever hurt?
Since this steak was HUGE (almost the size of my entire plate) I thought that I should serve it with a very light side. Vegetable Hater won out on the side choice, with me making his favourite strawberry salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette which actually turned out to be the perfect accompaniment to cut through the richness of the steak.
YUM! Oh and apparently I didn’t complete my steak to Vegetable Haters liking because I caught him nibbling on my bone after he cleared the dishes! Very reminiscent of family dinners when my mom would scold my dad for cleaning the bone off with his teeth while holding it in his hands.
I guess some things never change… and I should take that as a compliment!
As a Paleo devotee, my successes and failures are dedicated to leading a healthy Paleo-inspired lifestyle. Most of my recipes do not include exact measurements because I rely heavily on my intuition when cooking. These measurements also fluctuate depending on how many people you are cooking for and your personal preferences so I invite you to put your own personal spin on any recipes I post.
Please update me with any interesting additions or alterations to my recipes, I am always open to trying new things! And please post your comments below; especially how the recipe worked out when you try it!
