My Favorite Paleo “GO-TO” Meal

Posted on 22. May, 2012 by in Recipes

How many days in a row could you eat the exact same meal without getting tired of it?

I guess it depends on how good that meal is.

If you’re meal is as simple and delicious as the one in the post, you may even be able to eat it everyday for the rest of your life. (Im currently sitting around 60 days straight with this one and still going strong.)

This recipe is so stupidly easy that you will probably wonder why it needs an entire blog post devoted to it.  Its so simple that most cookbooks would probably omit it just so the readers don’t feel ripped off. I don’t even know what I would name it, “Andrew’s Beef & Egg Party” maybe.  That will work for our Recipes page.

But just because this recipe is simple, doesn’t mean it can’t be one of the tastiest meals you have ever had.  Once you get the perfect bite of juicy grass-fed beef, golden, runny egg yolks, creamy avocado, cool salsa, and fresh-cut cilantro, you will wonder why you haven’t been eating this everyday too.

For all the GUYS out there who use not being able to cook as an excuse, it’s time to man up! And join the beef & egg party!

Paleo Perfection!


1 6 oz 75-85% lean grass-fed beef burger patty (I have only made it with the patties from US Wellness and they are incredible.  Try with other beef at your own risk.)

2-4 whole cage-free/pastured eggs

½-1 whole Avocado, sliced

3-4 Tbsp Salsa (A decent amount of store bought salsas will work.  Find ones without sugar or sweeteners)

Small handful of fresh Cilantro, coarsely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste (garlic salt is good as well)


Start by cooking one of the burgers in a sauté pan on medium heat.  No oil or butter is necessary.  The burger will cook nicely in its own fat.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the burger is cooked to your desired done-ness.  I like medium-rare.  (Also note that most grass-fed meat cooks faster than conventional beef.)

Remove the burger and cook your eggs in the remaining fat left in the pan.  Cover with a lid and cook the eggs until the whites are cooked through but the yolks are still nice and runny.  (If I have time, I will add kale or spinach to the pan before adding the eggs.  The beef fat will make any vegetable taste amazing, and it’s a great way to get more greens in your diet.)

Slice up the avocado, add a few dollops (that’s a cool word) of salsa, sprinkle on the fresh cilantro, and plate with the burger and eggs.  (I like to get everything ready while the burgers are cooking so the plate looks like a landing strip for the incoming eggs.)

Find a way to get a little bit of everything on your fork and enjoy the perfect bite of the perfect meal.
