30 AIP Steak Recipes That Sizzle!

Paleo Steak Salad with Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Steak Salad with Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

Ingredients: baby kale, peaches, mignon beef steaks or other steaks, coconut oil, salt, olive oil, balsamic vinegar.

If you are a bit wary of trying fruit with meat, just remember how lovely duck and plum sauce goes together! The peaches add a lovely fresh note to the salad and another texture to the meat. White peaches have a milder flavor than yellow ones, but either one works well in this paleo recipe. Please remember to rest the steak after cooking, as this will allow the meat to relax and become even more tender.

AIP Herbed Sirloin Steak with Mushrooms and Beetroot Salad

– The Paleo Way

Ingredients: sirloin steaks, coconut oil, eschalots, swiss brown mushrooms or any mushrooms, sea salt, lemon, dried mixed herbs, onion powder, garlic powder, rocket leaves, beetroot, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil.

When you are following the autoimmune protocol it is important that you give yourself a treat now and then, so what could be better than a good steak with onion and mushrooms! Rounded off with the flavor of the herb coating on the beef, this dish would be lovely to serve to your significant other for a birthday or Valentine’s celebration as it is a touch of decadence but still within the rules!

Sirloin Steak with Garlic

– AIP Nutrition

Ingredients: sirloin steaks, olive oil, coconut aminos, garlic, salt.

flavored with garlic and coconut aminos, these wonderful steaks are paleo, keto and AIP-compliant and full of Asian tastes and would make a lovely dish to serve for a dinner party with friends. Although sirloin can be expensive, it is well worth buying a good piece of beef especially if it is for a special occasion. Just remember to rest the meat before serving to ensure it is tender.

You might be put off a bit by the price of whole beef tenderloin, but remember that you will be slicing it down quite thinly, so a little goes a long way!

Ingredients: filet mignon or tenderloin, arugula, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, black pepper (omit).

Carpaccio is a dish of very thinly sliced raw beef, usually from a better cut of meat, and served with simple seasonings. Raw meat dishes are common around the globe and beef in particular has much more goodness that can be destroyed by cooking at high temperature. As the slices are ultra thin, you won’t need a lot of meat per person, so this could be an impressive paleo dinner party appetizer.

Filet Mignon

– Paleo Effect

Ingredients: filet mignons, sea salt, black pepper (omit).

Filet mignon is very expensive, so this amazing beef should be reserved for special occasions or as a paleo AIP celebration meal. It is most important that you don’t touch the meat while it is cooking and you certainly don’t want to puncture it with a thermometer as this will let the juices escape and ruin the moist meat, so just cook it till it’s to your liking, then serve!

Roasted Herb Crusted Pork Loin Recipe

– Instinctual Wellbeing

Ingredients: pork loin, garlic, thyme, rosemary, dried sage, dried basil, olive oil, sea salt.

Pork has such a subtle flavor that it can easily take strong flavors like this herb crust to enhance the taste of the meat. In this low carb recipe the pork loin is covered in a mixture of fresh and dried herbs which infuse the meat as it is cooking. You can serve this pork sliced with a side of greens or roasted vegetables, or you can make a gravy to pour over the top.

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon with Paleo Pan Sauce

– Gutsy by Nature

Ingredients: filet mignon, bacon, salt, pepper (omit), bacon grease or lard or coconut oil or other cooking fat, shallot, bone broth, red palm oil.

Can you imagine how impressed your friends would be if you served up these filet pieces with their crispy bacon jackets and unctuous sauce? This is definitely a dish to serve for special occasions and celebrations and could even be an AIP-friendly alternative to turkey for Christmas. If you have a problem with using palm oil and tolerate dairy, you can replace the oil with a knob of butter or ghee.

Sometimes all you need with your favorite steak is a really good sauce and you have a winner for dinner!

Tuscan Style Grilled Rib Eye Steak

– Carrie’s Experiment

In fact if you cook them properly the fat will render down and make the steaks so juicy and tender you may never try any other steak again! This is another perfect paleo dish of thinly sliced beef which has been marinated in herb and balsamic mixture, absolutely filling the meat with flavor and giving you a cost-effective meal too!

Rib Eye Steak

A good rib eye steak can have your mouth watering before you eat it, and is such a satisfying dinner! When grilling steak, good chefs always recommend you oil the meat, not the grill, and this helps the seasoning to stick to the steak. If you have any left over, simply slice thinly and serve next day with a salad for the perfect tasty paleo lunch!

Grilled Grass Fed Rib Eye Steaks

– Nom Nom Paleo

Ingredients: rib eye steaks, salt.

You might think that salting a steak before cooking it could draw all the moisture out but you would be mistaken!

These delicious steaks can then be served with your favorite AIP accompaniments for a protein-packed meal.

Tuscan Grilled Ribeye

This is a simple recipe that gives you delicious steaks every time as they are coated in herbs and balsamic vinegar to enhance the flavor of the meat.

If you don’t have button mushrooms then just use whatever ones you have.

This is a quick-marinated steak dish which has Asian seasonings and tropical flavors from the pineapple and the fruit can help break down fibers in the meat really well so you can use a cheaper cut if you need to.

If you are concerned about the burgers being a bit pink in the center, just roll them a bit flatter, and then they will cook through.

One-Pot Braised Beef Roast with Carrot Mash & Olives

– Heartbeet Kitchen

Ingredients: beef chuck roast, garlic, olive oil, dried basil, salt, leeks, thyme, olives, carrots, water, arrowroot or tapioca starch.

One of the best things about following the autoimmune protocol is that you are eating real foods that are not masked with complex flavors so you can enjoy the natural taste of ingredients like steak and vegetables. This one-pot AIP meal is full of flavor and the beef is so tender because it is slow-cooked. Served with a side of carrot mash and you have a comforting and satisfying dinner for any night.

In this Asian-inspired recipe the pork steaks are slow-cooked in all the traditional flavors of garlic, ginger and coconut aminos with a touch of fish sauce so that the Thai influence comes through in the taste. If you like a bit more heat you can increase the amount of ginger you use, and remember that fresh ginger can be frozen and then you simply grate off what you need before returning it to the freezer.
