1 pound (preferably grass fed beef)
For the fries use orange kumara: Toss wedges of sweet potato in olive oil and salt and pepper. Grill for approximately 20 minutes so put them on first.
Top your burger with guacamole or tomato and bacon and wrap in a big green Lettuce leaf.

From Everyday Paleo
Everyday Paleo Crab Cakes
1 pound crab meat (canned is fine)
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons paleo mayo (not the red pepper mayo but just the plain mayo)
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon of chipotle powder
2 tablespoons coconut flour (or enough to make the mixture stick together)
2-4 tablespoons coconut oil
Shredded green cabbage for garnish
Lemon wedges for garnish
If using the canned crab, make sure to crumble the crab with your hands into a large mixing bowl and pick out any shells you might find. Mix the crab with the onion, mayo, garlic, sea salt, pepper, chipotle, egg and coconut flour. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat for 1 minute or until hot enough that a sprinkle of water in the pan makes the oil sizzle. Form the crab cake mixture into palm size patties and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown. Makes aproximately 10 crab cakes. Serve on top of the shredded green cabbage with lemon wedges and topped with my red pepper mayo if desired.

Growing up with 'shake n bake' pork chops that were cooked to death for fear my mother would kill us with trichinosis, I found it a challenge to cook juicy boneless pork. Last night was most definitely a success.
Freedom farm boneless pork, rosemary, salt pepper, and butter.
I just melted butter in a cast iron skillet, and pan fried in seasoning, then when they were almost completely cooked, I removed them from the heat and let them rest. Perfect!
Served with roast pumpkin and spinach salad.

Fish Cakes: from my friend Vee
garlic cloves - the more the merrier to keep the vampires away
1/2 lg onion quartered
about 1lb raw chopped tender white fish fillet (I used grenadier. Sole, snapper, tarakihi, or other can be easily substituted)
1 cup almond flour
a touch of tarragon
A few leaves of fresh basil (or a tsp or so of dried)
coconut oil (to cook in)
Pulse garlic, onions in a food processor
Add eggs and process enough to blend
Add fish chunks and process to blend fish well
Pour into bowl and mix in almond flour. See picture for consistency.
Form batter into cakes and fry in coconut oil on medium heat until browned, flipping once.
Drain finished cakes on paper towel.
I served with homemade garlic mayo.
Kumara and parsnips:
Use vegetable peeler to get thin slices, coat in olive oil, salt and pepper. Heat a pan and cook in rendered duck fat for best flavor. flip once and cook til crunchy. Drain on paper towel. Good hot or cold. Don't overload the pan or they will be mushy.

Here is a post from Robb Wolf on how to prep a weeks worth of meals in advance. Although they mention some bulk stores, I find Moore Wilsons in Wellington to have some great meat choices. They carry Freedom Farm brands, gluten free sausages, fresh seafood and lots of produce. Check it out. No Excuses.

Here is a spicy cocoa version of an old favorite. Since we will not be serving this over the traditional hamburger bun, you have several options. I like to make a bed of romaine lettuce and tomato slices, but there are many possibilities: eggplant, squash, nut patties, you name it.
· 1kg ground turkey or beef (preferably prime grass-fed)
· 1 cup chopped onion
· 1 cup tomato puree
· 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
· 1 Tbsp chili powder
· ½ tsp yellow mustard powder
· 1 ½ tsp ground black pepper
Cook meat and onion in a large skillet on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the meat is browned. Stir in the remaining ingredients and heat for another 10 to 15 minutes. Serve over vegetables of your choice. Makes 4 servings.
