I made this for dinner last night, it was a HUGE hit! The only thing I would do differently is buy a larger head of cabbage and tone down the quantity of meat used! I cannot wait to adapt this recipe to some of my other favorite Asian foods, you HAVE to make this, Paleo or not its DELICIOUS.
1 Large head of cabbage
3 bunches of green onions
1 lb. of pork tenderloin
1/2 lb. wild caught shrimp (uncooked)
1.5 lbs. chicken
2 Tbsp. Tamari or Soy Sauce (adjust to taste)
2 Tbsp. Fish Sauce (MUST HAVE INGREDIENT)
2 Tbsp. olive or coconut oil
1.Slice cabbage into thin strips, set aside in large bowl
2.Shred carrots, I used my food processor add to bowl with cabbage
3.Thinly slice green onions, save some for garnish if you like. Add to bowl with other veg.
4.Cut the chicken and pork into small bites, place in med. sized bowl
5. Add Soy or Tamari and let sit for 1/2 hour, I added about 5 cloves of crushed garlic as well but that is not necessary, we just LOVE garlic. Ginger is good to add here too if you have it.
6.Remove shells and devein shrimp, place in small bowl
7. Heat up wok with olive or coconut oil
8.Add pork and chicken, stir fry for 5 min. or until cooked.
9.Remove meat to another CLEAN bowl, set aside
10. Add cabbage, carrots and onions to wok with fish sauce, fry at high temp for aprox. 8 minutes or until cabbage is cooked but not mushy. I think I overcooked mine but it was still good, cabbage is a very forgiving veg.
11. Add shrimp and stir fry until pink
12. Add pork and chicken, stir fry for a few minutes and its DONE!!!
I did add some crushed red pepper for a little heat, it is totally no necessary but we like our spicy food around here! :) I hope you try it, we LOVED it..
This is a pretty straightforward lunch when eating Paleo! OH OH OH I have lost 4 lbs., I don't expect this to be my normal weekly weight loss but I am pretty darn happy..:) OK so this salad consists of 1 whole organic tomato, load of chopped romaine lettuce, 2 Tbsp. shredded cheese, 1/2 avocado, 1 can tuna (not albacore due to mercury) packed in water and a fairly large amount of hot banana peppers (my guilty salty pleasure). I used a store bought organic balsamic vinaigrette, not sure how Paleo friendly it is but if I am going to eat salads like a crazy fool I do have to have tasty dressing!!! :)

Hello BLOG I sure have missed you!
Life certainly can get in the way at times and my poor blog has taken quite a hit, for that I am sorry. :( I will continue to post my yummy bakery creations but you will find that I will be posting mainly Paleo deliciousness. YES folks, I am on a D**T...I am pretty darn tired of hauling around this extra weight and kinda really want to look good in a wetsuit..HAHAHA The best thing about Paleo is I can have both spinach and wine so I did not need to change the name of my blog! YEA
The above plate is what I had for breakfast this morning! If you are not familiar with Paleo eating, it can be summed up pretty simply NO PROCESSED FOOD AND NO GRAINS. Its not low carb as such (I hated Atkins), I can eat all manner of fruits and veggies and of course lean protein. Today I had 1/2 zucchini cut into thin strips sautéed with a small leek in 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tomato and a small amount of Creekside Smokehouse Cold Smoked Salmon (the best on the planet). I am attempting to watch my sodium so the only "salt" came from the salmon and my guilty pleasure TAPATIO.
OH and the reason I have not been blogging is because I suffer from extreme Procrastination Disorder with a tinge of Laziness Disease! I am working on that too...:)
