Carnivore Recipes

Simple Bone Broth

Apple cider vinegar (optional)

Bay leaf (optional)

Any kind of bones will work, even leftover bones from your meals

I prefer a mixture of lamb, beef, and chicken bones

Adding chicken feet (or any kind of animal feet) will help produce a strong thick broth if your bones are not gelatinous

In a crock pot or large stock pot toss in your bones.

Cover with water and add a splash of apple cider vinegar. (about 1-2 Tbs)

Let simmer for 24 hours, or set the crock pot to low.

Strain broth from bones, put the bones back into the pot and cover with water and another splash of apple cider vinegar and a few more feet.

Let lightly simmer for another 24 hours.

Strain broth from bones and store broth in glass jars.

Lasts 1-2 weeks in the fridge or 1 year in the freezer.

If freezing, make sure your jars are freezer safe and always freeze broth for 24 hours without the lid first to prevent the jars from cracking.

When serving yourself cooled broth, use about 1 part gelatinous bone broth to 2 parts hot water.

Add lots of salt to taste.

Dairy Free Gravy

¼ cup drippings from a pan after cooking roast, turkey, chicken, etc

1 cup broth liquid

1 whole egg

1 egg yolk

2 Tbs gelatin

1 Tbs cool water

1/2 tsp garlic

1/2 tsp onion powder

Salt to taste

Let broth and drippings mixture simmer and reduce for about 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the gelatin over the 2 Tbs cool water and let bloom for a few minutes.

Pour the eggs into a blender and begin to blend the eggs.

While the eggs are still blending, pour in about ½ cup of broth as well as the bloomed gelatin.

While continuously whisking the broth on the stove, pour the egg, gelatin and broth mixture back into the pot.

Keep whisking and cook on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until it starts to thicken up.

Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes before serving so it can thicken up a little more.

Enjoy with roast beef, roasted turkey or chicken!

 

This also reheats well, too. Once cooled it will be solid jello. Just scoop into a small pot and reheat on medium-low.

Tamales

Tamale:

12 ounces cooked chicken, seasoned

1 whole egg

2 ounces tallow or fat of choice, melted

¼ tsp baking soda

 

Filling:

Use your own combination of sliced cheeses and already cooked meats. Ex: sliced steak, sliced chorizo sausage, chicken fajitas, etc.

Shredded cheese and crumbled meats do not work well with this recipe, they just make a big mess, but if you cook your ground beef into a patty that works a lot better.

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In your blender or food processor add chicken & baking soda and begin to blend with melted tallow.

Add in the egg while the blender is on.

Let your “dough” chill covered in the fridge until firm. (About 1-2 hours, or overnight)

 

Using a large piece of parchment paper, spread half of the batter in the middle in a rectangle shape about 1 inch thick.

Layer your slice of cheese and sliced meat in the center of the batter.

Using the parchment paper, carefully wrap the meat and cheese with the batter. Folding the parchment into the shape of your fillings. Fold in the last 2 flaps underneath the tamale to hold it closed.

Place on a sheet pan and bake for about 20 minutes. Let cool 3-5 minutes and unwrap the parchment paper.

Cream of Chicken Soup

12 ounces cooked chicken (raw chicken works, too, just use diced chicken)

8 ounces cream cheese

3 cups chicken broth

¾ Tbs garlic

1-2 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

1 whole egg

 

Toss all ingredients, minus the egg, into a slow cooker.

Let cook on low for 3+ hours.

Before serving, spoon about 2 cups of soup into a blender.

Turn the blender on and keep blending on high.

While the blender is running, blend in to egg. Do not stop blending or else the egg will scramble.

Add the blended soup back to the pot and stir.

The soup should be nice, thick and creamy.

Serve as is or with crushed pork rinds on top.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until center is set.

Pepperoni Chips

Use your favorite pepperoni, or even your favorite thin sliced dried meat/sausage

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

 

Place pepperoni on parchment lined sheet pan and bake for 18-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

Let cool. Chips will get crisp once cooled down. Eat immediately. They do not stay crisp, but if you have leftovers you can re-crisp them in the oven for 3-5 minutes at 300 degrees.

 

Breakfast Pizza

1 ½ pound ground sausage (more or less is okay)

8 ounces room temperature mascarpone or your favorite soft cheese (cream cheese, soft goat cheese, ricotta, etc.)

4 eggs

4 ounces shredded cheddar or your favorite cheese

1 tsp garlic

½ tsp black pepper

Butter for cooking

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Press sausage into a sheet pan and flatten out very thin. Make thinner than you would like because it will get thicker onced cooked.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until meat is cooked through.

While the crust is cooking, heat some butter in a pan and cook scrambled eggs and season with salt to taste.

Remove crust from oven and drain grease.

Turn broiler on.

Spread your soft cheese onto the crust to the edges.

Sprinkle garlic and pepper over soft cheese.

Spread your scrambled eggs over the soft cheese.

Cover pizza with shredded cheese.

Broil pizza 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted/lightly browned.

This is also great cold if there are any leftovers!

You can also prep crusts ahead of time on parchment paper and freeze.
Once frozen, wrap in plastic wrap. That way you always have a meatza crust ready to go!
Frozen crusts take about 18 minutes to cook at the same temperature.

You can make into one large flatbread or 2 smaller ones.

For 2 smaller ones, spread half the batter onto a half sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner.

Do not spread to the edges, let the layer be about ⅓-½ inch thick. It will spread.

Bake for 12 minutes. (12-15 minutes for larger size)
