Thai Bison Stronganoff Featuring Shabir




This recipe comes from the Taste of Paleo food festival that I participated in a few weeks back.

I am excited about today’s version for three reasons:

  1. It gives you the first glimpse into my home kitchen (The Paleo Test Kitchen).
  2. My buddy Shabir joined me for the first of a long line of videos we’ll do together.
  3. We turned out a delicious, high-quality meal for 5 people in less than 15 minutes.

I’ve been incredibly busy putting together CrossFit South Bay Torrance. However, I will do my best to get in three posts this week. Next up is the first edition of the “It’s Not Gourmet, Bro!” series and we’ll finish the week with Paleo Nachos, which are to die for!

Shabir and I have a new friend, Drew, who has joined us for project “No More Broken Chairs.”

He weighs in at 480 pounds and I’m excited to share his story with you. Above is a quick pick of them during their workout last Friday. We’ll have to get Drew in the kitchen too, no?

Alright, gotta keep on making moves. I hope you are, “Keeping It Paleo!”

Your Pal,

Paleo Nick
