Mark said this was the best meal he’s ever had.
That’s it. Blog’s over.
I got this amazing cookbook called Coconuts and Kettlebells. It’s by Noelle Tarr and Stefani Rupper. I first discovered them by listening to their podcast – Well Fed Women. If you haven’t listened to them go do it now. And if you were like me a couple months ago and didn’t even know what a podcast was, crawl out of your hole and come join society.
I started listening to these women because their podcast is based around all things Paleo (as well as health, nutrition, fitness, body image, etc). But since Mark is all Whole30/Paleo, all the time, I thought it would be a good listen. Turns out I didn’t know what I was missing.
This book is awesome though. The first part just talks about the ins and outs of what is basically all things Paleo. It has a 4 week meal plan with breakfast, lunch and dinner, and then a bunch of great recipes. And it even has a fitness section with some workout moves I have yet to try out. (I need to do that. I’m just lazy. Meh).
When Mark told me this was his favorite meal ever, I was so excited. I was excited because this meal was one of the easiest meals I’ve ever made. And usually his favorites take me 85 days to make.
The flank steak was marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, fresh basil and S&P for a few hours. Then I just grilled it on the stove for 5 mixtures per side. That’s it.
The potatoes I loved because they were cut into wedges instead of the way we usually make them which is into little bite size chunks (which takes foreverrrrr to chop). I tossed them together with coconut oil, rosemary and S&P, and roasted them for 40 minutes. The ‘hands on’ time for these dishes was zero. Love.
This will 100% be a repeat recipe. Weekly. And if we could afford steak every day it would be daily. Someone give us money.
