When I was in Hong Kong last week I found organic coconut oil on sale. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the Paleo diet for while I’m in Consolidation. I have no plans on ever eating wheat again. EVER. So i think Paleo will work well for me. One of the oils you find in Paleo recipes is coconut oil. It is zero carbs, but a bit high in fat. I typically won’t eat something if the fat is more than 9 grams. This coconut oil is 14 grams of fat per Tablespoon.
So, this is technically NOT a Dukan recipe, but it is a good fat, and if you’re using very lean beef, it should be fine. This is definitely Atkins, low carb and Paleo friendly.
Sautéed Veggies with Beef
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 14 minutes
6 oz very lean beef, cut into 1″ chunks
1 Tbs organic coconut oil
1/2 large onion, cut in large chunks
2 tsp soy sauce
**To make this Whole30 compliant use Coconut Aminos**
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, diced
1/2 cup mushrooms, cut in chunks
Handful of fresh spinach leaves
Melt 3/4 Tbs coconut oil over medium high heat and brown the meat. I can’t describe the amazing aroma this created in my small kitchen 🙂
Remove beef and drain… Set aside.
Melt 1/4 Tbs coconut oil over medium heat and sauté the onions and ginger for 2 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and sauté for an additional minute. Add soy sauce. Stirring frequently.
Add the beef back into the pan, stir. Cook 1 more minute.
Add spinach on top…
Give a good stir, cover 1 minute and Serve!
This was super easy to make and it was yummy!
Pictures speak louder than words. So glad it’s April 2nd. Will shop for these items tomorrow
I think you’ll love it! The spinach was divine!
Looks very tasty Sandi. I use only Extra Virgin olive oil/grass fed butter/ X-V coconut oil when using fat. I’ve read a lot concerning coconut oil and find I respond well to it, plus it tastes great. Here’s a site I like very much regarding some new info on coconut oil you may enjoy http://www.westonaprice.org/know-your-fats/more-good-news-on-coconut-oil
I’m no strict adherent to WAP, but they do a lot of good work. Paleo and Dukan are like cousins by my reckoning, I too will strive to not be a wheat-eater for my remaining days….too much down side for me. XO
Thanks for the URL, Anna 🙂
I also believe that Paleo and Dukan are close cousins… that is why I think it will be easier to move into a Paleo diet while on Consolidation… I can’t wait to move home and eat organic meat again… lol, God only knows what I eat here! hehe
