This chili really hits the spot on those cold rainy days! I like to serve this topped with cheese, raw onion and sour cream and alongside some low carb (gluten free / paleo / keto) “corn” bread. This recipe is suitable for even a weeknight as it can be ready to eat in about 30 minutes by using the Instant Pot (including prep time).
EDIT: /rant: Since I've posted this recipe I've received actual HATE MAIL due to it's raw nature (omg raw beef and egg in one recipe breaks the internet apparently). I have had GREAT health results on raw beef from a trusted local source and a neighbors eggs. As always, you control your source and only make this recipe if those sources are trusted. Knowing your farmer is best. Who knew a recipe that used to be served in every fancy restaurant now makes the internet lose its mind. See first comment by SK below (thanks SK for providing good info and not hate mail!) for actual good advice regarding raw beef. /endrant
It was a hot night and I really wanted to try making steak tartare for the first time ever. I was hungry, craving beef yet not wanting to bbq a steak. I used to love eating raw hamburger or steak as a kid, and I do like my steak rare, but as an adult never had any meat so “raw” before. I was a little intimidated.
This recipe has been around the interwebs for a long time and I just made it for the first time today. It is hands down the best (and easiest) chicken recipes I've made, so I had to share.
I'm always in search for ways to eat more veggies, especially in the winter time. This “salad” was surprising to me… a natural sweetness combined with the saltiness of the bacon. It's a super simple side dish to prepare, and is even guest-worthy! You can top it with bleu cheese to make it more traditional ‘wedge' or leave it off for a dairy-free paleo side dish treat!
I'm always looking for more recipes that uses grass-fed ground beef, and this is a good one! You wouldn't think that hamburger would make a good low carb fried “rice”, but the meat lends well to the flavors of garlic, ginger and fermented soy. This is a filling and satisfying fall meal.
The other night I had a bunch of pizza toppings available, but I was too tired and hungry to make any of my wonderful low carb pizza crusts. So I just made a crustless version of pizza for a very quick yet satisfying dinner! You could even take this to work for lunch pretty easily…
Here it is… the Holy Grail of low carb pizza crusts! I bow down to you my cheesy, almond flour disc of goodness! If you prefer a chewy/crispy gluten free crust, read on for a great recipe… no actually TWO recipes, because I experimented with an even lower carb almond flour version of the Holy Grail, with great results! You can definitely fool the wheat eaters in your life with this recipe… it tastes amazingly like the real thing.
At great risk of showing my complete nerdiness (and maybe too great of attention to detail), I have a prepared a summary post for you on all of the low carb pizza crust recipes that I have cooked lately. Please see below for all of the dirty details on which one is better than the other. WHICH ONE will be the winner of this low carby, grain free contest? Read on to find out!
