Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat tallow, butter, ghee
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • 3 small eggs
 Instructions
  1. Divide the meat into three 4-ounce portions.
  2. Flatten each one into a patty with your hands, then place on a cutting board and open up the center hole. Press and pinch edges together, no cracks should show.
  3. Warm a skillet over high heat and add the cooking fat. Use tallow to keep this recipe dairy-free or cook in butter or ghee if you like. Any fat will do.
  4. Support the meat with your free hand while firmly lifting the ring up with a spatula and arrange on the skillet. Repeat until all meat is cooking. Adjust the opening if needed.
  5. While the meat cooks, crack open the eggs and add them one by one to the center of the meat. Continue cooking until the meat is nicely browned, about 3 minutes.
  6. Flip quickly. Cook the second side for about half as long or until eggs set.

Andy will show you a very simple way to make carnivore diet-style beef bread. This recipe uses all animal-based products as well as ground beef. It tastes great and can be used to make sandwiches and toast. Or go ahead and add some butter and honey and you have a great little snack. (However, disregard if honey is not part of your carnivore diet protocol.)
 
Ingredients: Ground Beef: 8 ounces
3 Egg Whites
5 Eggs
2 Ounces Cream Cheese 
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
2 ounces of Butter
 
Preheat oven to 370 Fully cook ground beef Add and blend cooked ground beef, 5 eggs, and Cream Cheese to Strong Blender. Blend until liquified. Add the batter to the mixing bowl, slowly add and whisk in egg whites. Add this batter to an oven-safe bread bowl. Be sure to add a layer of butter to help prevent the batter from sticking.

Carnivore Cheesecake Pudding

A no bake cheesecake pudding is the ideal keto carnivore-friendly dessert. It’s smooth and creamy sweet, plus it only calls for 3 main ingredients and 10 minutes of your time to prep it!

Prep Time: 10minutes
Chill Time: 2 hours

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed beef gelatin
  • 1.5 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  1. Put the sour cream in a wide dish and sprinkle the gelatin over the top. You want as much surface area as possible; the wider the dish, the better. Leave aside to “bloom” while it sits and thickens.
  2. Bring the water to a simmer in a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the thickened cream. Mix well until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  4. Pour into individual pudding cups like ramekins or one main serving dish.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until completely set. Serve chilled.
Notes
If you aren’t a strict carnivore, try this with up to ¼ cup erythritol or another sweetener of choice. Dissolve the sweetener in hot water at the end of step 2, then, continue with the recipe.
