Keto Paleo Means Sustainable Pastured Beef
Do you like beef? And do you ever feel conflicted about eating it, knowing the horrible quality and suffering associated with factory farms? I believe no human being with a conscience can actually support such practices as factory farming, once they are aware of the details.
So what is the solution to this conundrum? Do we need to stop eating beef altogether?
I do not believe so! I think that we can make the right choices and support the right farming practices that create happy and healthy animals and a healthy environment.
That is why I was thrilled when I found Crowd Cow.
During 7 years I lived in Northern California, I have sourced my meat directly from the farmer, but since moving back to the city, I found it difficult (and very expensive) to support small farmers who raised their cows on pasture.
The concept of Crowd Cow is simple: ”
Crowd Cow’s mission is to allow everyone to discover and enjoy the very best beef from local ranches and to make the experience convenient and fun.
Crowd Cow is committed to showcasing and celebrating very best local farms and the people who have dedicated their lives to producing healthy, high-quality, sustainable meat.”
Crowd Cow makes it possible to buy beef directly from the farmer without having to buy the whole animal! it think that’s genius!
To introduce this wonderful service, I partnered with Crowd Cow and we can offer you $10 off your first order!
Keto Paleo Bombay Meatballs Rich and Flavorful
Do you get tired of the same old recipes? Same old meatloaf or dry burger patty?
Here is a fresh new flavor for your meatballs. A mix of bold and complex spices, combined with the creaminess of the pan glaze. Stuff worthy of a 5 star restaurant in Bollywood, where Indian movie stars dine!
Yes withy of a restaurant but also quick and easy to prepare!
These meatballs are suitable for any keto lunch or dinner, and even as your protein part of a carb up meal. (In that case I would use organic basmati rice as a side!)
Try them on cauliflower rice or with keto Naan (both recipes will be in my upcoming cookbook!!)
- Serves: 8 meatballs
- Serving size: 1 meatball
- Calories: 201
- Fat: 17 gr
- Net Carbs: 1.5 NET gr
- Fiber: 0.3 gr
- Protein: 10.1 gr
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- ½ red onion, very finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon ground Madras Curry powder
- ½ cup water
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- ½ cup coconut cream
- 1 tablespoon Madras Curry powder
- In a large nonstick pan ( I prefer ceramic pans, as they are non-toxic) melt the coconut oil, on medium heat, add the garlic and onion and saute' until slightly browned but not burned, for about 5 minutes. Now add the ginger, cumin and Madras Curry powders and saute' for another minute, onion should be browned but not entirely cooked. Add in water and close with a tight fitting lid. Lower heat to low and let cook until onion is soft and cooked, about 5 minutes. In the meantime bring the ground beef to room temperature in a large bowl. Once the onions are cooked, add them to the ground beef.
- Mix the onions and the beef well, and when cool enough to handle form into meatballs about 2" wide. Flatten them slightly with your palm and set aside.
- In the same pan, melt the other tablespoon of coconut oil, on high heat. When the oil is hot, add the meatballs. Brown on all sides, for about 5 minutes, then lower the heat to medium, cover with a lid and cook until done inside, about another 3 minutes.
- Once the meatballs are ready, remove from the pan.
- To deglaze, add the coconut cream and a tablespoon of curry after you remove the meatballs, and cook on medium heat, scraping the browned bits from the bottom and mixing well, for about 2 minutes. A thick brown sauce should form.
- serve the meatballs with cauli rice or keto naan, pouring sauce over them.
