Sticking with Simple…


Just like my outfit yesterday, our dinner was simple and yet delicious.


We had a greens salad with a blood orange vinaigrette.


Paired with a filet mignon steak.


Paleo Beef Stew


I adore beef stew, but potatoes (a key ingredient) are high in carbs, and somewhat questionable in the paleo/primal world. The sunchokes were the perfect thickening and texture replacement, and added a fantastic depth of flavor.

  • 2 pounds stew beef
  • 1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups beef brother
  • 3 carrots (chopped)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 sunchokes (chopped)
  • Tablespoon of tarragon
  • Shake of crushed red pepper
  • Pinch of oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Splash of vinegar

First, brown the beef in the pressure cooker. Once it’s browned, pour off the fat. Add the can of crushed tomatoes, broth. Pressure cook for about 10-15 minutes. Open, add carrots, onion, and sunchokes, and pressure cook for another 10-15 minutes. Open, add a splash of vinegar, and enjoy!
