“Learn this preparation and make it often.” – Paleo Nick
It doesn’t get much simpler than this. A hot pan, meat, salt and fresh fruit and veggies. Add a Zephyr hood and some stylin’ grill marks and your golden!
Here is some wisdom for today from the author of Don Quixote:
“Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you can only spend it once.” – Miguel de Cervantes
I hope that you spend your life wisely and I hope that you “Keep It Paleo!”
Lime Seared Skirt Steak with Avocado Pico
“Keep It Paleo!”
12 oz. skirt steak cooks down to about 10oz. With steak equaling 1 oz per block, that gives us 10 blocks total.
Our first two limes are being used as seasoning so we won’t count them in our carb totals. We will however count all the ingredients that make up the pico. We start with 2 large tomatoes. We get 2 blocks from the tomatoes as we know that 1 cup equals 1 block. Additionally we get about 1/3 of a cup of lime juice from the 3 limes so we will count that as an additional block. Finally, we will get one additionally block from the combination of the red onion, garlic and jalapeño to bring the carb total up to 4.
Our fats are coming from our avocados. Generally we get about 8 tablespoons from one avocado so we will get about 16 tablespoons from two. We know that 1 tablespoon equals one block so therefore we have 16 blocks from the avocado.
We have a little more on the fat side but basically a 2-1 protein to carb ratio. The carbs and fats are mixed together, so if we broke the pico into 4 portions, we would get 4 fat blocks and 1 carb block per portion.
