We often feature paleo recipes here, as part of Origin’s Weight Loss Program. In this weight loss program, we believe that the paleo diet is one of the most effective ways to lose weight and keep it off permanently.
Sure, the feature of this paleo recipe remains the steak. A beautiful NY strip steak that I demonstrate how to cook perfectly in the video below. Many tips there, one of which being to let the meat rest half the time that it has cooked.
But really, the huge benefit of this paleo recipe (beside the fact that it’s paleo!) is that it contains only 5 ingredients. Five.
You see, we love simple and straightforward paleo recipes. We don’t believe that cooking should be a chore. And frankly, when you start listing 20 or 25 different ingredients for one single recipe, then you end up doing a chore. Who has the time to shop for 25 ingredients (especially paleo ingredients!) or find substitute ingredients?
The second benefit of this paleo steak recipe is that it features raw zucchini. In my cookbook Eat More Burn More I created a recipe with with raw zucchini that is delicious. I included it as a bonus at the bottom of this blog post.
As an added bonus, I’m also including yet another raw zucchini recipe from our cookbook The French Paleo Burn. This time, we make a “zoodle” salad, or “zucchini noodle” if you prefer.
But I digress. For now, let’s focus on the new recipe. The 5 ingredients are NY Strip steak, red onion, zucchini, thyme, and salt/pepper. Super simple.
To cook the steak, I choose a cast-iron pan. It’s just a great tool that gives such a beautiful searing on meat that it’s hard to pass. Quick sear on each side, for a nice, golden brown crust.
Meanwhile, it’s time to work on the zucchini, which I simply dice and mix with thin slices of red onion. A bit of thyme, and that’s ready to go.
We’re pretty much done. The steak is resting. This step must not be skipped; it guarantees a moist and tender meat. Very important. it’s also important to keep the drippings from the cast iron pan, and dump them into the zucchini salsa, and toss.
