Sunday Grill Supper

Paleo Five-O – Last night’s supper consisted of Bourbon Salmon from Fresh Market and mixed vegetables on the grill, watermelon and blackberries, and my favorite squash recipe.To get the sqishy consistency I like in my squash, I usually cook it for hours in a frying pan. To see if I could speed up the process and retain the flavor, I tried the pressure cooker. It worked – delicious squishy squash in less than an hour.Pressure Cooker Squash5-10 summer squash, depending on size, chopped1 onion2-3 slices of baconSea saltPeppe…

Paleo Pressure Cooker Chicken Soup

Paleo Five-O – My not-so-little girl is home sick, today. I wanted her to have some chicken soup but not the nasty canned stuff. Pressure cooker to the rescue, again!

She likes noodles, so I’m cooking those separately just for her.Paleo Pressure Cooker Chicken Soup3 bone-in chicken breasts 1 onion, chopped1 turnip, quartered5 carrots, whole2 stalks celery1 bay leaffresh parsleysea saltpepper6 cups waterPlace the vegetables, b…

Thanks for the Recipes Mark Sisson and Sarah Fragoso

Paleo Five-O – Last night I made this kitchen sink salad from Everyday Paleo. For extra flavor I pan seared the chicken. I drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled it with salt and pepper, then seared one side in a pre-heated (medium-high) cast iron frying pan for 5 minutes. I flipped the chicken and let it cook for 2 minutes, then put it into a 400 degree pre-heated oven for another 8 minutes. We had the salad with beets from the pressure cooker as Sarah Fragoso did. I cannot wait for her Everyday Paleo Cookbook to come …

Paleo Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

Paleo Five-O – This is a little video of the pressure regulator gently rocking on the top of my pressure cooker. You can download instruction manuals for Presto pressure cookers on their website.I’m obsessed with my pressure cooker. This is the third day I’ve cooked a savory main dish with a cook time of 15 to 25 minutes. Sunday, it was chili. Monday, it was Thai chicken (I’ll post on that later). Last night was beef stew. I adapted this recipe from food.com. It’s fun to find a recipe and modify it for Paleo. I’ve put an …
