Chimichurri Skirt Steak Paleo

Is there anything better in this world than a properly grilled steak?? (No. The answer is no.) We grill steak about once every 2 weeks in our household and it’s definitely an indulgence. We only buy grass-fed, pasture-raised steaks from US Wellness Meats, and that can get a bit pricy if we aren’t careful. And when it’s a special treat like that, I get pretty devastated if it doesn’t taste right.

Thankfully, I’ve perfected my steak recipe over the past few years, and I love how it turns out almost every time now. And with the addition of my Creamy Chimichurri Sauce, it tastes amazing even when I overcook the steak sometimes.

If you don’t own a grill, you can broil your chimichurri skirt steak or cook it on a cast-iron skillet. The creamy tartness of the sauce compliments the steak perfectly and I can’t believe I only discovered this combo recently.

The best part, of course, is the leftovers, and I love to enjoy the steak the next day on a salad, tacos, or stir-fry. If you’ve been intimidated about cooking steak in the past, don’t be. It’s actually really easy, and the result is just so dang delicious!

Paleo Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers

I’m so excited to share this recipe because I love it so much that I actually made it twice this week. Shrimp is one of those things I tend to forget about and then when I do remember to cook them, I can’t get over how delicious they are. Especially when paired with some delicious spices and flavors, it really can’t be beat.

This recipe started out with me just putting random ingredients together that I had in the kitchen to make the marinade. This is how some of my best recipes start sometimes. Nothing planned, just organically coming together from me experimenting with whatever available ingredients I have. It’s just the best feeling when it turns out as amazing as these Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers.

What is it about food on stick that makes them so much more tastier? These Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers are the best cooked on the grill, but you can still enjoy them if you don’t have one. Just broil them for the same amount of time, or you can just pan fry them without putting them on skewers. Although, if you are like me, that’s definitely not as fun to eat!

Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

Whole30-friendly and paleo marinated grilled greek lamb skewers are so flavorful and delicious, and perfect for the summer!

Paleo Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

What is it about food on sticks that makes them so darn fun and yummy? Grilling season is in full swing, and I’m enjoying every bit of it because I love grilling and it adds so much flavor! If you agree, you need to keep reading because you’ll absolutely love this recipe.

I’m a huge fan of lamb, and it’s what I usually get at a restaurant if it’s an option. It’s just so flavorful and feels fancy, but in reality, it’s actually very easy to cook at home and quite forgiving and still tender if you end up overcooking it a bit. One of the newer Trader Joe’s products is grass fed lamb, so we’ve been enjoying it more often than usual and the husband and I have been loving it. And our recent favorite way to cook lamb is this grilled Greek lamb skewers!

Paleo Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

The Greek marinade is what really makes this recipe shine because it’s just so flavorful with a salty, lemony punch. I highly recommend you marinate overnight because it truly makes a difference! I plan to keep this recipe in my weekly rotation, because we honestly couldn’t get enough.

You can use any veggies (or none at all) for this recipe that are appropriate for grilling. Zucchini, bell peppers, and onions are some of my favorites, but eggplants, tomatoes, or anything else that’s hardy enough to withstand direct heat from the grill can work.

Don’t have a grill? Try broiling it! All these Greek lamb skewers needs is a hot, direct heat for a short time, and it’ll be cooked in no time. Hope you bookmark this one to make this summer because it’s definitely a winner!
