Throwdown! (Paleo-Blogger style)

well right now I’m up at Lake Conesus in upstate New York with no Internet so I’m posting from my iPhone! However, as the INITIATOR of a Paleo-recipe throwdown challenge, my opponent, Lori from, had to post hers yesterday, I have to make the best of surroundings and post mine. So no pictures, however, they will come along with the VIDEO for my recipe!

The challenge was to make a paleo recipe using Ground beef and Coconut cream/milk! Weird I know, right? But I had to make it hard… It’s a throwdown!

So what I came up with was coconut meat sauce! Here is the recipe for one person-ish
– 1/2 pound grass-fed ground beef
– 1/4 cup real coconut milk (in the video I add another 1/4 cup of water, but don’t do this)
– 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
– 1/4 cup diced onions
– garlic and onion powder to taste
– touch of chipotle powder

Start by browning the ground beef, the add the onions and mushrooms into the pan with the juices. One the onions are truculent, add the coconut milk and let simmer.
Serve this over a delicious baked and shredded spaghetti squash!

Tasted great! Now head over to and check out her Paleo Coconut Cream Olive Meatballs

Now YOU be the judge! Leave a comment on my blog or hers with your vote. HOWEVER, be fair because her blog is prettier than mine and has nicer pictures ; )

But my recipe video will be up soon!

Leave a vote and have a great weekend guys!

  1. Ooh, this sounds good. Lucky for me I have some gound beef (grass fed!) in the freezer, waiting to thaw. I was wondering what to make with it, besides a predictable burger. Will let you know if I try! Let me check out Lori’s recipe first…
