Steak, Eggs & @JulianBakery Paleo Powder

March 15, 2013

The other day I woke up HUNGRY. I had worked out twice the day before, ran around all that day and was pretty tired otherwise. I figured this would be a great wake-me-up plus you know, I really like steak and eggs and the addition of Julian Bakery’s Paleo Powder simply made it all the better. Here’s the recipe, enjoy:

 

Steak

Coat with a little olive oil (I use the not Butter Butter flavor from The Olive Scene) then season well with the Paleo Power. Broil on one side for 7 minutes and then flip to the other side for 6 minutes. This came out about medium for me but my oven is very odd and probably needs replacing or repairing. Anyway, it was simple and delicious, perfect breakfast steak.

 

Eggs

Beat two eggs together, pour them into a skillet and, well, scramble them up. Put some Paleo Powder on them for an extra kick and when they’re nearly done, I added some goat cheese. These were pretty fantastic eggs and I’ve made them a few times since, great every time.

Fajita Steak & Cheesy Taco Eggs

July 26, 2012

No real shock here, I LOVE Mexican food or at least I did. More on that later, tonight it was late and I had a very early breakfast and an earlier than usual lunch so I was HUNGRY. According to my eating plan, I hadn’t had quite enough calories today and I was really behind on the protein count so this lovely idea popped into my head.

Earlier in the week my wife bought some steak we hadn’t yet prepared and I had some eggs, really the most important part of eating right is a part I’m failing at currently, grocery shopping regularly. Anyway, I had my two basic ingredients so I proceeded.

 

Cut your steak up into strips and put into a non-stick skillet (I usually put a little Olivio in for good measure), sprinkle in either some garlic powder or fresh garlic and let it cook up. Before the steak is done add in some fajita seasoning (I use Penzey’s brand seasonings, if you don’t have a Penzey’s nearby I THINK you can order their spices online, totally worth it) and toss the steak around a bit, then remove from heat. In the same pan, crack open two eggs and sprinkle chicken taco seasoning (also Penzey’s) flip the eggs over when ready (however you want them, could scramble them too) then cover with some low-fat cheddar or mexican blend cheeses. It was a spur of the moment thing, took less than 20 minutes to prep and cook and was quite delicious despite the poor picture. 🙂

Asparagus – Long May It Rein

July 10, 2012

I LOVE Asparagus, it is among my favorite vegetables and might some day supplant spinach as my most favorite. I can pretty much eat it any way you can make it, sometimes even raw but it has to be really fresh for that. Today, I sautéed it in Olivio (switched to Olivio Light today and can’t tell much difference) and crushed garlic with a little Mural of Flavor and wow was it good. I like asparagus so much that the steak I grilled with it I considered a side dish, isn’t that messed up? Anyway my wife will only eat it once a week so it will be relegated to lunchtime treat status for the rest of the week. Next week though I might post some of my more experimental recipes with it.

 

Anyway, chop the asparagus in half (leaving really just a little more than the tips) and melt some Olivio in a pan. Take some crushed garlic, a little black pepper and stir that up into the Olivio as it melts. Once it is all mixed together and appropriately melted add in your asparagus tips. Sauté it until the tips are tender but still have a little snap to them. It is delicious. The grilled steak was just grilled steak, seasoned with basil, garlic and thyme, seared on both sides then covered and grilled until done. It was a quick and tasty dinner.
