Paleo Eats: 6/5/11

Pin It

I’m more than halfway through my workweek…

My first meal at work was some leftover umami slider burgers, baked sweet potato fries, and nuked frozen broccoli.

Halfway through my shift, I ate a package of Just Jerky for snack.

The last meal I ate at work was a sous vide wild king salmon salad with greens, shredded carrots, avocado, and cucumber.

When I got home, I seasoned and vacuum sealed two big ass grass fed cowboy steaks (two pounds each!)…

…with Tabil seasoning, salt, and pepper…

…and a bunch of Full of Life Farm pork chops with Dukka seasoning, salt, and pepper. 

I’ll be serving both the steaks and chops later in the week so I stored the uncooked pork chops in the fridge and I dunked the vacuum-sealed steaks…

…into the SousVide Supreme (set at 130 F)…

…for ~8 hours. If you’ve got some gigantic rib eyes that you want to grill (without sous viding), follow these awesome instructions from Serious Eats right here.

Then, I treated myself to half a bar of Guittard Nocturne 91% cacao and read my new Paleo magazine before passing out.

At 5:00 p.m., I woke up and started preparing dinner. I defrosted the wild prawns I bought at the farmers’ market yesterday…

…shelled and deveined them (nobody wants to eat shrimp poop)…

…and made some Tabil-seasoned sautéed shrimp.

As the veggie side, I sauteed some pancetta, baby spinach, julienned summer squash, minced garlic, and Sunny Paris seasoning.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, I iced the sous vided cowboy steaks and stuck them in the fridge for tomorrow night’s dinner.

As I got ready for work, hubby picked me up a big ass mug of Phil’z Coffee (Anesthesia to the Upside with heavy cream). He definitely knows how to keep me in great spirits. Remember these words of wisdom uttered by erudite Theresa Giudice: ”Happy wife, happy life.” Stop denying it — you know you love them bitches from Jersey!
