36 Succulent Paleo Steak Recipes https://paleoflourish.com/paleo-steak-recipes

Paleo Steak – Sirloin & Tenderloin

Spicy Paleo Beef Teriyaki Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

Spicy Paleo Beef Teriyaki Recipe

Ingredients: gluten-free tamari sauce, coconut aminos, applesauce, garlic, ginger, sirloin steak, avocado oil, red pepper, sugar snap peas, white button mushroom, onion, red chili.

As you know teriyaki sauce traditionally tends to be sweet, but with refined sugars being a forbidden ingredient on the paleo diet, it can be difficult to replicate the taste. So that’s where this amazing teriyaki recipe comes in! It shows how to use healthier ingredients to achieve the sweetness but still keeping you on plan. There is subtle heat from the ginger, but if you like it spicier you can add some chilis for garnish.

Steak Medallions With Ginger Asparagus Mushroom Saute

– Paleo Flourish

Steak Medallions With Ginger Asparagus Mushroom SauteIngredients: beef medallions, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, button mushroom, onion, parsley, ginger, coconut oil, salt.

It is always a good idea to season steak first before you cook it, then the action of cooking helps infuse the steak with the flavors. There is a freshness to the sauté from the asparagus and parsley which complements the beef really well. This is a simple paleo recipe that lets you emphasize the flavor of the beef. If you don’t have button mushrooms then just use whatever ones you have.

Paleo Steak Salad With Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Steak Salad With Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

Ingredients: baby kale, peaches, filet mignon beef steaks, ghee or coconut oil, salt, pepper, 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.

Beef Wellington

– Paleo Flourish

Beef WellingtonIngredients: almond flour, chia flour, egg, ghee or coconut oil, baking soda, salt, button mushroom, onion, garlic salt, olive oil, beef filet mignon, prosciutto or ham, yellow mustard.

Beef Wellington is one of those dishes that have a real feel of luxury and indulgence, although it can be made healthier by following this paleo recipe. It is traditionally served as a main for Christmas dinner as an alternative to turkey in the UK, but would be perfect as a main for any celebration meal. Wrapping the pastry round the meat can be tricky, but the end result is so good that it is worth the effort!

Beef Teriyaki Recipe With Sweet Potato Chunks

– Healing Autoimmune

Beef Teriyaki Recipe With Sweet Potato ChunksIngredients: coconut aminos, applesauce, garlic, ginger, beef sirloin steaks, olive oil, sweet potato, white button mushroom, green onions.

Teriyaki is a Japanese dish of flavored meat, and is usually quite sweet but with a tangy hit. In this AIP recipe the tanginess comes from applesauce and it complements the sweet potato really well. The beef is designed to be caramelized on the outside, adding to the flavor of the dish and making this a great dish to serve with chopsticks! This paleo recipe is low carb and gluten free.

Easy Baked Sirloin Roast with Herb Rub

Ingredients: sirloin tip, paprika, sea salt, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, garlic, olive oil.

This fabulous sirloin roast would be perfect for Sunday dinner or for a celebration meal. It has a wonderful herb rub that infuses its flavor into the beef. This is a grain and gluten free meal that would even be good instead of roast turkey at Christmas. If you leave the meat to rest it will be tender and juicy and leftovers can be used for salads, stir-fries or as a filling for paleo breads.

Pepper Steak

– My Heart Beets

Ingredients: sirloin petite roast or sirloin fillets, black peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon stick, cayenne, apple cider vinegar, salt, oil of your choice, onion, ginger, tomato, water, cilantro.

Pepper and steak is a match made in heaven and there is no need for paleo folks to miss out on this delicious meal! Instead of a creamy peppercorn sauce, the meat is rubbed with pepper and other seasonings and allowed to sit to let it absorb the flavors. This paleo recipe is for steak sandwiches, but I like to serve this as a main meal instead, perhaps with a simple side of greens.

Paleo-Talian Carpaccio

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: filet mignon or tenderloin, arugula, truffle infused extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, black pepper.

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.

Simple Beef Tenderloin Filet Mignon

– Cavegirl Cuisine

Ingredients: sea salt, pepper, smoked paprika, beef tenderloin filet mignon, ghee.

Although filet mignon is an expensive dish to make, it really is worth the extra cost, so this would be an impressive paleo dish to serve for a family celebration. You certainly don’t want anything to mask the flavor of this amazing beef, so keep the seasoning really simple and don’t complicate the taste with a load of sides. A simple dish of greens would be perfect!

Filet Mignon Wrapped in Lard Topped With Pate

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: filet mignon steaks, uncured bacon slices, chicken liver pate, ghee, sea salt, pepper.

Because of the luxurious look and flavors in this amazing paleo steak dish, it would be ideal to serve to a loved one on Valentine’s Day or for a special birthday celebration meal. Steak topped with paté looks so good and the paté will melt slightly, giving added juiciness to the beef. As filet mignon is an expensive cut of beef, this recipe is best used for a special occasion.

Cinnamon-Rubbed Sirloin Salad with Fresh Pear Vinaigrette

– Seasonal & Savory

Ingredients: sirloin steak, salt, cinnamon, black pepper, butter lettuce, watercress, and/or any lettuce combo, pecans, pear, extra virgin olive oil, white wine vinegar.

The flavor of this beef is amazingly sweet and spicy at the same time! The cinnamon goes well with the pear and adds a special touch to this low carb salad, and the pecans give a contrast in texture to the steak and the soft pear. Just remember to rest the steak before slicing, as this will allow the beef to become more tender and succulent.

Tuscan-Style Grilled Rib Eye Steak

– Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen

Ingredients: rib eye steaks, rosemary, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, black pepper.

Rib eye steaks have a lot of marbling of fat through them, but this does not mean they will be tough. 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!

Paleo Steak – Flank & Skirt

Marinated Grilled Flank Steak

– Paleo Flourish

Marinated Grilled Flank Steak

Ingredients: flank steak, coconut oil or olive oil, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, ginger, paprika, onion powder, salt, thyme, chili powder.

Using citrus in a marinade can help to tenderize the meat, allowing you to use cheaper cuts – great if you are on a budget! It also allows the flavor of the herbs and seasoning to be absorbed by the meat so the steak will taste amazing. Simply place the steak on the grill until it is cooked to your taste, then serve with grilled vegetables or a homemade low carb salsa of your choice.

Paleo Ropa Vieja Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Ropa Vieja Recipe

Ingredients: flank steak, coconut oil, olive oil, white wine vinegar, sea salt, cilantro, parsley, garlic, tomato paste, peppers, onion flakes or onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, cumin powder.

Since this lovely paleo dish is cooked in a slow cooker, you can afford to use slightly cheaper cuts of meat and still have it turn out tender. This recipe is for a shredded beef dish which looks and smells delicious. If you use different peppers such as red and yellow, you can add a slight sweetness and fabulous color to this meal.

Grilled Steak & Cucumber Noodle Bowl

– Grazed & Enthused

Ingredients: beef skirt steak, english cucumber, ginger, coconut aminos, lime juice, mint, sea salt, olive oil.

With its flavors having their roots in Asian cuisine, this would be the perfect paleo dish to serve at an Asian-inspired meal. The ginger and coconut aminos give a wonderful savory flavor and the whole dish rests on a bed of fresh cucumber noodles. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you could simply slice the cucumber very thinly on a mandolin or with a potato peeler.

Simple Five Spice Flank Steak With Shiitakes, Peppers, Onions

– Cavegirl Cuisine

Ingredients: beef flank steak, shiitake mushrooms, onion, red pepper, lime juice, sesame oil, chinese five spice, sea salt.

Like many other marinades, this one uses lime juice as one of its ingredients, and it is very useful at starting to break down the fibrous meat and leave it tender and delicious. This is a simple paleo meal of beef and veggies, but with the five spice seasoning, it tastes absolutely amazing! If you don’t have shiitake mushrooms then a good alternative would be oyster mushrooms.

Marinated Skirt Steak With Cilantro-Lime Ghee

– Cook Eat Paleo

Ingredients: organic extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, garlic, sea salt, pepper, skirt steak, ghee, cilantro, cumin powder, cayenne pepper.

Even though you are using a slightly cheaper cut of beef for this paleo recipe, marinading it overnight with lime juice can help break down the tough fibrous tissues and leave the steak so tender you would think it was sirloin! This steak makes a wonderful meal as soon as it has rested, but I find that it can be enjoyed cold the next day and the flavors will have enhanced even more. Slice thinly and serve with green salad.

Easy Marinated Grilled Steak Tacos

– Beauty and the Foodie

Ingredients: beef skirt steak or flank steak, sea salt, pepper, lime juice, cumin, romaine lettuce, avocado or tomato or cilantro.

This is another great paleo recipe which lets you use a cheaper cut of meat which will tenderize once it has been marinated. Once it is cooked the steak can be sliced or pulled and served in lettuce wraps with a range of toppings. I like to serve such ingredients as sliced avocado, finely sliced red onion and chopped scallions, then you can let guests construct their own tacos.

Grilled Flank Steak With Chimichurri

– Skinny Taste

Ingredients: flank steak, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, pepper, sea salt, parsley, cilantro, red onion, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, water, red pepper flakes.

Here is another great example of how keeping the seasoning reasonably straightforward lets the flavor of the meat shine through. This lovely paleo steak is served with a chimichurri sauce which has a parsley and cilantro base flavored with garlic and with a little kick of heat from the red pepper flakes, although this can be reduced if you don’t like too much spice on your meat.

Paleo Steak – New York Strip & Rib Eye

Rib-Eye Steak With Celeriac And Horseradish Puree, Thyme Butter

– Autoimmune Wellness

Ingredients: duck fat, garlic, thyme leaves, sea salt, celeriac, cauliflower, horseradish, avocado oil, rib-eye steaks.

There is something really appetizing about a really good steak with melting herb butter over the top that just makes you want to grab your fork and get stuck in! In this AIP recipe the steak is paired with celeriac mash which is creamy and earthy with a little kick from the horseradish and makes this into a satisfying meal. If you don’t have thyme, you could use another herb of your choice.

Ribeye Steak Salad

– Keto Dash

Ingredients: ribeye steak, steakhouse seasoning, green salad mix, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt, pepper

Here is another example of how keeping recipes simple can really emphasize the flavor of the steak without adding too many complex tastes. A good ribeye will shine through with just simple seasoning and is perfect served thinly sliced on a bed of greens of your choice. Baby spinach goes well with steak and so does arugula. This is a really satisfying meal but with only 2 carbs per serving.

Southwest Steak Salad with Spicy Avocado Dressing

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: beef ribeye, salad greens, grape tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, black olives, cilantro, lime juice, balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar, olive oil or avocado oil, garlic, sea salt.

If you like steak salad we recommend you try using a rib eye steak as it is full of flavor and slices really well, but retains a good meaty texture. If you choose to use the avocado dressing you will find it has wonderful zingy citrus from the lime, balanced with the richness of the balsamic vinegar to complement and enhance the flavor of the meat. You could even add spice if you like some heat with your meat!

Grilled New York Strip Steak With Garlic Compound Butter

– Popular Paleo

Ingredients: ghee, garlic, sea salt, parsley, thyme, black pepper, beef new york strip.

When you are making herb butters for steaks or to serve with roasted vegetables you often have too much. So to avoid having any waste, please remember that butter can be frozen! Wrap in individual portions then you can just defrost what you need to make amazing paleo steaks like these! Again there are no overpowering flavors in this recipe so the taste of the beef is the star of the show!

Paleo Rib Eye Steak

– Paleo Effect

Ingredients: grass-fed rib eye steak, extra virgin olive oil, paleo adobo seasoning, sea salt, pepper.

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 leftover, simply slice thinly and serve next day with a salad for the perfect tasty paleo lunch!

Other Paleo Steaks

15-Minute Crunchy Steak Salad Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

15-Minute Crunchy Steak Salad Recipe

Ingredients: salad greens, red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, radishes, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, steak, gluten free tamari soy sauce, olive or avocado oil.

A steak salad can make a really impressive paleo dish for a dinner party and tastes amazing served with these crunchy vegetables, which complement the meaty steak well. For an even bigger hit of flavor you could try sprinkling the steak with a mixture of ground ginger and garlic powder before marinating, then cook in the same way.

Pan-Fried Steak Recipe With Creamy Mushrooms And Thyme

– Paleo Flourish

Pan-Fried Steak Recipe With Creamy Mushrooms And Thyme

Ingredients: ghee, beef steaks of your choice, salt, pepper, white button mushroom, garlic, thyme, gluten free flour, coconut milk, mixed salad leaves, tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, lemon.

There is something quite amazing about a good steak paired with meaty mushrooms that makes your mouth water! In this fantastic paleo recipe the mushrooms are in a creamy sauce made with coconut milk to give that unctuous mixture that we all love with good beef. In order to get the best flavors from the meat, you should cook it with simple herbs and seasoning then they won’t overpower the true flavor of the meat.

Keto Roast Beef Recipe With Carrots And Onions

Keto Roast Beef Recipe With Carrots And Onions

Ingredients: beef round, carrots, onion, garlic, olive oil, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper.

Here is another simple recipe that gives you a hearty and delicious keto and paleo-friendly meal for the whole family. You are cooking the roast beef over the vegetables, so the meat juices can flow over and permeate the veg, and they absorb the flavors of the beef. So if you are looking for a high protein meal, this one could become your favorite!

Beef Brisket Au Jus

– Meatified

Ingredients: beef brisket, onion, carrots, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt free tomato sauce.

Brisket has the reputation of being a tough cut of beef, but if you cook it for roughly an hour per pound, you will transform it into a deliciously tender piece of meat. The tomato sauce actually helps in this process because the acidity of the tomatoes helps to break down the connective tissues in the beef, resulting in tender brisket that would grace any dinner table!

Easy Paleo Peach Steak Salad Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

Easy Paleo Peach Steak Salad Recipe

Ingredients: peaches, head of romaine lettuce, baby kale leaves, steaks, olive oil, balsamic vinegar.

When the weather is very warm, it can be just as satisfying to serve simple dishes with simple flavors like this easy paleo peach steak salad. You have a wonderful combination of richly flavored steak complemented with the soft and juicy peach, all serve on a bed of greens and drizzled with an oil and vinegar dressing to bring the straightforward flavors to the fore.

Quick Paleo Fajitas And Counting My Blessings

– Paleo Flourish

Quick Paleo Fajitas And Counting My Blessings

Ingredients: onion, bell pepper, tomato, steak, garlic powder, cumin powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, coconut oil.

Fajitas are associated with everyday Mexican cuisine and can be a lovely quick paleo-friendly meal to prepare after a busy day. They are quick to make and full of delicious flavor from the beef and seasonings and can be made spicier if you prefer. This can be served as it is or in lettuce wraps. If you are cooking the strips of meat in a skillet, rest the meat for a few minutes before serving to allow the beef to relax and be more tender.

Butter Coffee Rubbed Tri-Tip Steak

– Wicked Stuffed

Ingredients: tri-tip steaks, black pepper, sea salt, coffee blocks, garlic powder, olive oil.

For those of you who are not sure, a tri-tip steak is cut from the base of the sirloin and is a flavorful cut of beef. In this paleo recipe the coffee adds a note of smokiness to the beef and enhances the flavor of the steak. Once it is cooked, allow the steak to rest to release its juices and then reabsorb them to keep the meat moist and juicy and full of taste, otherwise it can be very dry and a bit tasteless.

Steak With Mushrooms, Thyme, And Sweet Potatoes

– Healing Autoimmune

Steak With Mushrooms, Thyme, And Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients: olive oil, sweet potatoes, beef steaks, white button mushrooms, garlic, thyme.

I absolutely love steak with mushrooms! To me they just go together so well, and paired with the sweet potato chunks, this is a satisfying and filling AIP meal. I know steak is expensive, but if you keep your eyes open you can sometimes find good deals in stores or at farmer’s markets. By all means use this recipe as a special meal for a celebration – it’s great to treat yourself now and again!

Pineapple-Marinated Steak

– Autoimmune Wellness

Ingredients: pineapple chunks, fish sauce, coconut aminos, sea salt, powdered ginger, garlic powder, beef steak.

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 looking for a paleo autoimmune side to serve with this steak dish, I recommend you toss up a fresh, green salad and add a hit of citrus in the dressing to add to the zing of the pineapple.

SousVide Cowboy Steak

– Cavegirl Cuisine

Ingredients: coffee crystals, paprika, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, mustard, garlic powder, sea salt, onion powder, coriander, beef chuck, ghee.

You might be wondering why you would even consider adding coffee to the marinade for this paleo cowboy steak, but just like adding dark chocolate to chili dishes, it simply makes the flavors of the meat richer and deeper in flavor. Sous vide is also a great way to cook cheaper cuts of meat to ensure it has a tender texture without losing any flavor.

Slow Cooker Brisket

– Popular Paleo

Ingredients: beef brisket, granulated garlic, sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, tomatoes, garlic, beef broth or water.

This is another straightforward paleo recipe that gives you a perfect solution for a tasty and delicious meal. For some reason, tomatoes go so well with brisket and they help to keep it moist and juicy. Once it is cooked you can reduce the juices to give you a sauce to pour over the beef. Any leftovers can be turned into a breakfast hash, or reheated and served with an egg.

Cilantro Lime Steak Strips

Ingredients: steak, lime juice, cilantro, ghee, garlic, sea salt, cumin powder, smoked paprika or chili powder, raw honey, water, cayenne.

If you are not too confident about buying and cooking good steak, it is a good idea to go to your local farmer’s market and ask for advice, after all, they grow it so they should know the best ways to eat it! These steak strips are packed with flavor and taste great either warm or cold, so any leftovers can be tossed into a lovely fresh salad for lunch the next day and the flavors will have intensified overnight.
