Recipe: Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

I’ma just say this right upfront: I can take no credit for this recipe. I’m merely sharing what was a delicious baby born of the combination of this recipe’s flavors and Melissa Joulwan’s pork shoulder carnitas technique. See, I was looking for something new for my pork shoulder, and I had played around with that […]

Recipe: Bacon-Green Chile Meatloaf

As I mentioned in my Lamb and Olive Chili recipe, ground meat will save your life. That goes for anytime, but especially during a Whole30. But sometimes…it sure gets old, doesn’t it? I run through the usual: burgers, taco salad, tomatoey meat sauce, meatballs, even a stir-fry treatment. But I always forget about meatloaf. It’s […]

Recipe: Mustard Grilled Pork Chops w/ Basil-Apricot Relish

WHOOOOOOO-DOGGIES!!!!! Have I got a hootenanny of a recipe for you today! How could it not be, with seasonally fresh and delicious apricots melding with the mustardy goodness on the chops? I just ate this a few days ago, and my mouth is seriously watering in remembrance. Any cut of pork will do for this, […]

Thai Meatballs w/ Herb Salad

Despite the name, this recipe is about two things: 1) a pungent, assertive Thai-inspired dressing, and 2) herbs. The meatballs are great and all, but when I get an irrational craving for basil, I make this. If you can find Thai or Holy Basil, even better (though regular basil will work just fine). I’ve made […]

Recipe: Pork Chops w/ Sage Applesauce

I have two girlfriends (Hi Heather!) who made batches of homemade applesauce from their trees this year. I’ve been the lucky recipient of two jars of the stuff, which is saying something, because these gals guard it jealously. My daughter loves the stuff, but I was able to reserve enough of it to give this […]

Recipe: Carnitas Ensalada

Carnitas is one of my favorite Paleo meals, hands down. It’s fatty and succulent, easy to make, and feeds a crowd. Or, if you’re lucky like me, there’s no crowd and you get a ton of amazing leftovers. I will not lie to you. This is the best carnitas recipe out there. Why? Because it’s […]

Recipe: Vegemeatloaf

I’d like to thank Jan’s Sushi Bar for the inspiration for this one. I wanted meatloaf, but a lot of Paleo/Primal recipes rely on either coconut or almond flour, and seeing as how I was Whole30ing, that didn’t seem appropriate. I knew from my experience with meatballs that binders didn’t seem necessary, so I chanced […]

Recipe: Chile Verde Pork

Stews in New Mexico tend to be simple affairs—some meat, some onions, and a richly flavored sauce steeped in tradition. If you’re used to the black-bean-and-avocado Mexicali cuisine or the greasy, melty plate of Tex-Mex, you might be surprised at what you get in the northern parts of New Mexico. If you’re not familiar with […]

Recipe: Pork No Mein

Y’all. I used to be a noodle fiend. I loved all kinds and all applications. When I lived in Albuquerque years ago, there was a restaurant named Nothing But Noodles, and lemme tell you, that was a menu that made me happy. Italian noodles, Japanese noodles, Chinese noodles. I loved them all. Obviously, noodles and […]
