Can we just cut this shit already. Get to work.
Hi gang –
Quick and dirty video for a quick and dirty marinade. I’ve used this on chicken and pork, in both the crockpot and in the oven (after an overnight marindae). Pardon the random ourbursts, Marc Broussard will do that to a guy.
Suitcase Kitchen Episode 4!! I have to give a special thanks to those that were kind enough to let me use their video in todays post. Let’s be clear, these are easy and it simply doesn’t take that much time to make. So, you get some filler – Enjoy!
As for the application of these burritos, you’ll find one such example below from a previous post. The modification in the video is different than the recipe below because I needed something with less fat for the Zone Diet I had been working to stay on.
Meat in a nutrition bar? EPIC does it, so why can’t I?
Preparation is the most important aspect of maintaining your healthy lifestyle. Whether that’s looking like a drifter with a car full of gym clothes, changes of clothes and shower necessities or just having a quick go-to snack in your bag to avoid poor food choices, there’s no axiom more crucial to supporting your healthy behavior and keeping you on track.
Burritos speak to me. Handheld edible wrappers of deliciousness. Game on. The problem is, store bought tortillas aren’t great if your’re avoiding flour and corn tortillas, well, suck. The little feast took a fair amount of work, but it’s worth it! Previously, I did a little Cinco de Mayo feast that can be found here. Disclaimer, there’s a fair amount of steps, so take short cuts as needed.
- Fresh ground pork loin
- Made adobo sauce (doubled the recipe)
- Soaked and boiled pinto beans (2c prepared)
- Made rice and quinoa (1c dry, each) – cooked and combined
- Made paleo burritos – original recipe, my ingredients:
- Saute 1 red peppers and 1/2 white onion
- Made burrito filling
As for the filling:
- Once the peppers and onions were done:
- Add 1C rice/quinoa mixture
- Add 1C beans
- Add 1/2 C adobo sauce
- Add 1 mashed banana
- Add 1lb cooked ground pork (cooked with ~ 1/2C adobo sauce previously)
- Add 1/2c water
- Add spices (1tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp black pepper)
- Each burrito can accomodate ~ 1.25C of filling and is roughly a 5 block zone meal
Once everything has cooked together for 5-10 min, start making your burritos and save for later.
Considering there’s a video, I don’t think this requires much explanation. So watch it!
Take home message: ribs can be a part of most any diet. Don’t you go dying on me now.
If paleo: drop the brown sugar, add a little honey when applying the coconut oil and before the dry rub. Run a thin line of honey down the meaty side and spread with your hands.
If atkins/keto: no sugar of any kind in the rub.
If zone: you can eat as shown, but you have to think about how many grams or “blocks” of fat you’re alloted per meal. Since ribs are a fattier cut, you can’t approach with reckless abandon as people might on atkins/keto or paleo diets. 4 oz meat = 18g protein, 18g fat – subdivide appropriately!
Stay on your game and enjoy your delicious treats!
