Smoked Prime Rib Recipe, Without a Smoker

Published: in Health News by .

Making prime rib at home can be intimidating, but we’re going to show you a simple grill-to-oven method that is virtually foolproof. This may become your new go-to recipe when you want to impress! This prime rib starts on a gas or charcoal grill with wood chips to infuse it with a smoky flavor. If you have a smoker, by all means use that for the smoking portion. It is then finished in the oven to get a crispy browned exterior and a juicy, medium-rare interior. A variety of wood chip varieties can be used for beef, but for this recipe we like cherry, apple or pecan. For a bolder flavor, you can try hickory or oak. We highly recommend salting the prime rib the night before and letting it rest in the fridge in a pan with a rack. This will give the meat more flavor and be more tender after cooking. We serve the prime rib along with our Primal Kitchen Steak Sauce. Ingredients 5 lbs. boneless prime rib Salt 1/4 cup unsalted butter 2 Tbsp. fresh thyme leaves 3 Tbsp. chopped sage leaves 2 tsp. Black pepper 8 cloves grated garlic Primal Kitchen® Steak Sauce Directions Pat the prime rib dry. Liberally salt your meat on all sides and place it on a rack in the fridge overnight. The next day, take the meat out and allow it to rest at room temperature for an hour. Melt the butter and mix in the thyme, sage, pepper and garlic. Rub the mixture all over the meat and place it in a cast iron pan. We used a cast iron grill pan since it was too big for our regular cast iron pan.   While the meat is resting, soak some wood chips for about 20 minutes. Beef can withstand many types of wood for smoking. Many people like using hickory or oak, but for this we like fruit tree chips like apple, cherry, or pecan. For less than $20, you can purchase a smoker box, which is a metal box with holes that holds wood chips in your grill. Or you can do what I did and make your own smoker out of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Either way, drain your wood chips thoroughly. Place them in the smoker box or in the center of a large square of foil. Wrap the wood chips in the foil, then use a knife to poke some holes in the top of the foil packet. This will allow fragrant smoke to emanate from the package. Turn one side of your gas grill on to high heat. Place the foil packet with wood chips on the side that’s heating up. Cover the grill and allow it to come up to temperature and for the wood chips to start smoking. This will take 30 minutes or so. Once you see a good amount of smoke coming from the foil packet, place the pan with the meat on the opposite side of the grill (the … Continue reading “Smoked Prime Rib Recipe, Without a Smoker”

Comment of the Week
“Sun exposure – totally depends where you live. Here in New Zealand you can get seriously sunburnt in about 10 minutes in summer between the hours of around 10am – 3pm, especially if you are pale. You can actually feel the sun burning your skin immediately. I NEVER sit directly in the sun and don’t go into the sun without sunscreen and a hat. We have the highest rates of melanoma in the world.”

Ask a Health Coach: Pre-Diabetes, Detoxes, and What’s More Important, Diet or Exercise?

Published: in Health News by .

Hey folks! Erin back to answer more of your questions. If you’re struggling to keep your blood sugar balanced, just coming off a 30-day challenge, or want to know the real solution for long-term weight loss, stick around for this week’s post. We love getting your questions, so keep them coming in the comments below or over in our Mark’s Daily Apple Facebook group.   Devin asked: “I just got blood work done and it came back that I’m prediabetic. I don’t eat much sugar (I’m not a dessert kind of person) and follow a paleo diet about 70-80% of the time, so I’m confused. What else could be at play here?” Sugar is sneaky. It’s everywhere in our culinary culture and not just in the places you’d expect, like cookies, cakes, and $6 coffee drinks. The average person consumes up to 66 pounds of added sugar per year. That’s added sugar, not naturally sweet foods like fruit, or foods that convert to sugar, which I’ll talk more about here in a sec. Is Prediabetes Bad? When you’re a chronic consumer of sugary foods or foods that turn to sugar, your body begins to become insulin resistant, meaning the cells stop responding to the insulin your body pumps out (which keeps blood sugar levels in check). Your doctor already informed you that you’re pre-diabetic, which doesn’t mean you’ll develop diabetes, but it doesn’t mean you won’t – especially if you continue to eat the way you’re eating. But to answer your question, there are lots of factors that can impact your health status other than food. Things that impact insulin resistance: Genetic factors/family history Chronic stress and cortisol spikes Being sedentary or sleep deprived Altered gut microbiome Where Sugar is Hiding But let’s assume it is something you’re eating. Food manufacturers use sugar, and yes, even fat, to make food hyper palatable, so they’re hard to resist and easy to overeat. Maybe you’ve been duped by foods claiming to be low in sugar, only to find out that these “healthy foods” are loaded with ingredients like maltodextrin, dextrose, and rice syrup. Processed food is a huge culprit for hidden sugars — everything from soups and salad dressings to ketchup, nut butter, and deli meats. Not only that, a diet filled with refined and processed carbohydrates will digest more quickly and cause a spike in your blood sugar. And if you’re in the spot you’re in now where your cells stop responding to insulin, certain foods will continue to put you on the fast track to chronic illness. In your 70-80% paleo diet, are you eating any of these with any regularity? Even non-sugary foods and non-sweet items turn to sugar in the body, including: Oatmeal and breakfast cereals Bread (even gluten-free bread) Pasta and rice Beans Pastries and baked goods Low-fat yogurt Crackers Your best bet is to opt for whole, real foods that don’t come with a label, get a good night’s sleep, and recheck your labs in a … Continue reading “Ask a Health Coach: Pre-Diabetes, Detoxes, and What’s More Important, Diet or Exercise?”
