Welcome Angela, she's got 1 more day of onramp!

Five rounds for time of:
5 Muscle-Ups
135 Power Clean, 10 reps
Run 220 meters

Why 220 meters? I don't know but there it is.

Wednesday's Paleo Recipe:
"Slipper" Burgers
Chapli Kebab
1 lb, Ground beef or lamb*
1/2 medium onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 serrano peppers, seeded and minced (for more spice leave seeds in)
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh ginger (1/2 tablespoon dried ginger)
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground  black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
*The  meat needs to be around 20% fat or higher. Most ground beef is nowhere near this fatty, I generally achieve this by mixing in bacon or pancetta. Lardo is also an option. General 3 to 4 slices for one pound of meat. It lends a nice smoky flavor too.

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl or food processor. Combine for 3 to 4 minutes. Mixture should be well processed and highly seasoned. To test cook small portion in skillet, taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.

2. To cook, pat out into patties approximately 1/2" thick and 4-5" oval, kinda like a small slipper. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cook in a very hot pan or over on a hot grill.  no more than 4 to 5 minutes a side.

3. Serve with Tzatziki sauce and steamed fresh vegetables or a nice chopped salad.

I mentioned this before, maybe even featured this recipe (I can't remember too many blog posts), and want to feature it again.  It's an easy way to spice up ground beef as well as pretty quick to prepare and cook. Try it out! 

Wednesday recipe feature is a new thing I'm trying out. Each week I'm going to put a recipe that is paleo and tasty plus pretty easy to prepare. If you've got a paleo recipe you think should be featured send it in!

  2. GA....I love your smile and positive attitude....thank you so much for the encouragement this am!

  3. I have an awesome idea Paul, Wednesdays should feature a show called 'Paul CAN cook Paleo' and you should bring your creations to the gym where the food will be judged by a panel of critically acclaimed experts, namely me.
