Steak and Hollandaise ๐Ÿฅฉ

A classic strict carnivore meal that makes you forget you need plants to have a complete meal ๐Ÿคฉ

I have been loving my prime graded grassfed beef steaks from Heifer Hog and Hen- you can use code SAVEHLN on your order ๐Ÿ˜‡

This time we used filets but this works with any steak- even bison or elk!

To make you need:

Your favorite steaks – I love filet, picana or Chuck eye ๐Ÿฅฉ

Tallow for searing ๐Ÿซ™

Optional butter for butter basting ๐Ÿงˆ

For the Hollandaise-

5 egg yolks ๐Ÿณ

1 stick butter- 8 tablespoons ๐Ÿงˆ

Splash of lemon juice (optional) ๐Ÿ‹

How to:

Heat up tallow in a pan, I like stainless steel. When the pan and tallow are hot, pat your steaks and sear. Cook 3-5 minutes depending on thickness and then flip. This allows a crust to form. Do the same on the other side. Season with salt and your favorite spices, and then turn down the heat, cook another 3-5 minutes. Until you reach the ideal temperature!

Meanwhile make the hollandaise- this can also be made ahead of time. It keeps well frozen or in the fridge for 3-4 days!

To make the Hollandaise- separate the whites from the egg yolks. Set the whites aside and save for something like our vanilla collagen pancakes – recipe coming ๐Ÿ˜‡ (they also freeze well)!

Heat up the butter, Iโ€™m lazy and I use a microwave. I add the egg yolks to a bowl and use an immersion blender to beat them. Then I slowly pour in the warm butter , while blending. Itโ€™s critical you go slow or the eggs will split aka scrambled egg!

At the very end, add an optional splash of lemon juice ๐Ÿ‹

When the steak is ready, serve the warm sauce over the steak ๐Ÿ˜

Sheeps Tzaziki ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿง„

We recently discovered the yummiest sheeps yogurt at the store! Itโ€™s made with full-fat sheeps yogurt which is rich in MCTS ! Itโ€™s the perfect condiment to go with meat, and makes an animal based diet more fun!

Sheeps yogurt is a great option for anyone who is intolerant to lactose or casein, and is generally well tolerated. The one we buy does not taste very sheeplike and is rich and creamy! To add some more fat, we chose to add some sour cream too! So delicious and tangy!

We chose to grate the cucumber but you can dice it too. Cucumber is fairly low in anti-nutrients, especially when peeled and deseeded, so itโ€™s a good option for those who are sensitive!

To make you need:

6 ounces sheeps yogurt ๐Ÿฆ

3 tablespoons sour cream ๐Ÿฅ›

Grated cucumber ๐Ÿฅ’

Diced green onion ๐Ÿง…

Garlic ๐Ÿง„

Salt ๐Ÿง‚

To make :

Finely chop the onion, peel and de seed the cucumber, grate it and stir that into the yogurt and sour cream. Add fresh grated garlic to taste, and add salt!

Enjoy this animal based dip with your favorite meat and seafood!

Vanilla Sheeps Milk Ice Cream ๐Ÿจ

Summer time is coming to an end but that doesnโ€™t mean ice cream season is over ๐Ÿ˜

Weโ€™ve been making sheeps milk ice cream lately with raw sheeps milk- Sheeps milk is incredibly rich in MCTs which are very metabolically supportive and has more protein and nutrients than cows dairy!

We added a collagen boost with Equip Foods newest vanilla collagen which helped add a nice flavor!

The best thing is that this ice cream isnโ€™t only a treat- itโ€™s a superfood and can literally be eaten as a meal, a breakfast even ๐Ÿ˜‚

We used our trusted Ninja Creami to make this but you can also pop this mixture into an ice cream ๐Ÿจ maker ๐Ÿ˜œ

To make you need:

1 cup cream- A2 raw is best ๐Ÿฅ›

1 cup milk – we love raw sheeps milk ๐Ÿฅ›

2 scoops vanilla collagen ๐ŸŒž- use code Cureeated

2 egg yolks ๐Ÿณ

Vanilla bean ๐Ÿซ˜

Optional- 3 tablespoons allulose

How to:

Combine all the ingredients and freeze for at least 24 hours in the ninja creami pint. Or add to the ice cream maker.

Blend on the gelato setting and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜

Slow Cooked Pork Tenderloin ๐Ÿฅฉ

On busy week days, weโ€™ve been loving easy slow cooker meals- set and forget, dinner is served ๐Ÿ˜

To make you need (2-3 portions);

1.5 lbs pork tenderloin ๐Ÿฅฉ- we love Apsey Farms corn and soy free pork, use code HELEN10

Trim the silver skin off of your pork tenderloin , add olive oil to the bottom of the slow cooker, season the meat, rub with mustard , chop the onions , add a dash of bone broth and add everything to the slow cooker ๐Ÿ˜‹

1 lb ground beef ๐Ÿฎ

1 lb ground pork ๐Ÿท

If you like, you can also add in finely chopped bell pepper, but traditionally, itโ€™s just onion. Next, form large round meatballs with your hand.

Fry the meatballs in lard, usually they need about 20-25 minutes total depending on their size.

Make sure the lard is hot so that you can get a nice sear and crust. When they are ready, remove them from the pan and add in the cream to deglaze the pan ๐Ÿ˜ all the yummy drippings will create a great flavor profile. Add more seasoning to taste and optionally grate in some raw parmesan or pecorino ๐Ÿง€

Serve either as is or with a low carb side like miracle noodles ๐Ÿœ

Smoked Salmon Salad ๐Ÿฃ

We try to eat salmon for the essential fatty acid content about 2-3 times a week, but in the hot summer months , sometimes we prefer to eat it cold as a salmon salad ๐Ÿ˜

Combine all the chopped ingredients in a bowl. mix and add the sauces. Mix again and season again to taste with salt.

Serve garnished with egg and optionally a grain free cracker!

Raw Frozen Kefir ๐Ÿฆ

When I got my ninja creami, I was devastated that Iโ€™m on a carnivore diet after seeing so many delicious fruit based ice creams ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜…

Then I realized I could make a delicious tart and probiotic rich treat using sheeps kefir and chocolate collagen powder; I should not even call it dessert, itโ€™s food ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜

Iโ€™m sure this would work in an ice cream machine too and with different flavors but the chocolate kefir is an iconic taste for me because my mother would make me a Nesquick infused goats kefir for breakfast when I was a little girl ๐Ÿ‘ง

For those that donโ€™t know how the Ninja creami works- the mixture needs to be frozen for 24 hours in the container before it can be blended and turned into โ€œshaved ice creamโ€ ๐Ÿฆ

To make you need:

1 pint of sheeps kefir (or any other kefir) ๐Ÿฅ›

3 scoops equip chocolate collagen powder- any other protein powder works too ๐Ÿ˜…- use code Cureeated

How to:

Freeze the mixture in the container and blend in the ninja creami on the light ice setting ๐Ÿ˜… itโ€™s that simpleโ€ฆ enjoy, top with homemade whipped cream if you can tolerate it

Animal Based Power Lunch ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Although we do make some recipes that are more labor than intensive, most of our lunches are put together in a few minutes- I like to call it the power lunch! Itโ€™s very nourishing but can be made quickly between daily activities ๐Ÿ˜Œ

This week- we made this combo on repeat: corn and soy free pork sausage with eggs and avocado ! So yummy and full of healthy fat and proteins ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Avocado is actually a fruit thatโ€™s relatively low on the plant toxin spectrum so we include it in moderation ๐Ÿฅ‘
