Pork Chops with Leek Sauce

Since we started getting a share of a pasture raised local heritage pig, pork chops have become my favorite meat. They taste amazing prepared simply and can easily be dressed up for company like these pork chops with leek sauce. These pork chops are nothing at all like the lean and dry “other white meat” […]

Carne Asada Bowls

This paleo version of carne asada is a great way to prepare flank steak, one of my favorite cuts of grass fed meat, and when we had a warm early spring day last week I thought it was a great excuse to break out the grill! Though gringos like myself may think it refers to […]

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon with Paleo Pan Sauce

Fancy pants bacon wrapped filet mignon is not an every day sort of dish in the Gutsy By Nature house, but we get a couple packages of it with our grassfed beef share and enjoy the special treat very much. I have tried preparing it in a few different ways and have combined the best […]

Home Cured Corned Beef

Why not cure your own corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day this year? Home cured corned beef takes just a little bit of time and the some space in the back of your refrigerator, and you have complete control over the quality and ingredients. Corned beef and cabbage is my family’s traditional St. Patrick’s Day […]

Roast Chicken with Cabbage and Apples

I just love a simple roast chicken and am always looking for ways to further simplify life by turning it into a one dish meal that harnesses the heat of the oven to cook another dish and puts the juicy drippings to good use. This chicken with cabbage and apples does just that! While the […]

Beef Shanks with Vietnamese Spiced Glaze (Gluten Free, Soy Free)

The flavor for these paleo beef shanks take their inspiration from the lovely Vietnamese soup known as pho, cooked down to a thick and nutrient dense glaze. Paleo-purists may choose to serve it with cauliflower rice, but I’ve been cautiously experimenting with white rice in my diet and finding that not only do I tolerate […]

Pork Chops with Pear Shallot Sauce

This recipe was inspired by one in Bruce Aidells’ Great Meat Cookbook, which I got for Christmas this year and have enjoyed […]

Beef and Parsnip Stew with Marjoram

Until recently, I always made my beef stew the same way. But lately I’ve been experimenting with different vegetables this recipe for beef and parsnip stew is my latest creation. Parsnips are similar to carrots, but with a mellower flavor and provide a nice alternative here for people who can’t or don’t want to eat […]

Chicken Saltimbocca alla Piccata (Dairy Free, Grain Free)

My favorite Italian dish to make at home is a lemon and caper chicken piccata and taking a close second to that would be anything made with prosciutto in the “saltimbocca” style. This recipe is my dairy free and grain free combination of the two, which I have probably completely butchered the Italian syntax by […]

Garlic and Ginger Beef with Broccoli (Gluten Free, Soy Free)

I don’t get cravings for food from my pre-paleo days very often, but every once in a while I get a hankering and this recipe for garlic and ginger beef with broccoli is the result of my recent nostalgia for Chinese takeout. And like most home cooked meals, it is ¬†actually far superior in taste […]
