Primal / Paleo Carbonada

I know the pic is not the best, but it’s all my Iphone can do :/

As I say goodbye to Winter – with a nice “GTFO and never come back” tone – I prepared this typical Chilean dish. It was really easy to substitute some ingredients to make it Primal. Who needs corn, rice and potatoes when you have cauliflower and broccoli? Specially when you can’t really taste any of it in the final product!


– Lard, liberally

– 1 pound beef, chopped in small squares

– 1 medium onion, chopped

– 2 garlic cloves

– 7 cups of beef broth

– 1 tsp dried oregano

– 1/4 tsp cumin

– 2 tsp salt

– 1 medium carrot, chopped

– 1 cup butternut squash, chopped

– 1 cup cauliflower

– 1 cup broccoli

Serves 5 Groks, or 4 really healthy Groks.


Heat up your favorite, most magical pot during a full moon night. After a few minutes doing some Primal dance, add the lard to the pot, then brown the meat and the onion. After the meat has become a brown yummyness, and the onion has started to caramelize, add the oregano, cumin and salt. Stir, then add your favorite organic broth. If you use regular, non-grass-fed broth, I won’t tell anyone. But shame on you.

Once the potion starts to boil, add all the memaining ingredients. Cut your fire down to low, so you’ll get a lovely simmer. Put a lid on it, then go sprinting outside for 20 minutes. After that, you’re done.

Now, you can go and serve right away. But this is the kind of soup that you really should let cool down, store in your fridge, and eat the next day.

Serve with fresh chopped cilantro. On a winter’s night, it will almost make you cry of joyness!

    I couldn’t handle all that lard. You’re a REAL paleo beast. Not like my dabbling. 🙂

      I said lard LIBERALLY. That means just a small teaspoon, or several Tablespoons. Just the amount you want to add, and feel comfortably with. Adjust the amount of lard to your liking! Heck, even use PAM if you feel like doing so!

  2. Mmmm, this looks pretty good. They key to losing weight is finding satisfying foods that are also healthy.

    YUM! I’m definitely trying this after my grocery shopping trip on Friday. Already have the ingredients saved in my iPhone. Thanks for sharing!
