PaleOMG is one of my favorite Paleo food bloggers ever. She is funny, sarcastic, and her recipes are the bomb. She also has a new cookbook out that you can get on Amazon that has 100 gluten free recipes!

Ingredients (4 servings):
For the carne asada

  • 1½ pounds flank steak
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoke paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice of 1 orange
  • juice of 2 limes
  • ⅓ cup beef broth

For the fries

  • 3 large white sweet potatoes, sliced into fries
  • 3 Tablespoons melted ghee (orig recipe calls for Tin Star Ghee)
  • couple pinches of salt
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Adobo seasoning (orig recipe calls for Primal Palate Adobo)

For the tomato salsa

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in fourths
  • handful of cilantro, minced
  • ¼ red onion, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of garlic powder

For the guacamole

  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • ¼ white onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ jalapeño, minced
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 pinches of sea salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • pinch of garlic powder

For garnish

  • shredded cheese (orig recipe calls for Kerrygold cheese)
  • chopped cilantro, to garnish
  • pickled jalapeños, to garnish

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients for the carne asada in crockpot, cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Use a fork to shred the carne asada and leave in crockpot on warm while you make the rest.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Wash sweet potatoes then slice into fry size pieces. Toss fries in ghee and sprinkle with salt. Place all fries on cooling rack without overlapping. Place in oven to bake for 30 minutes then turn fries over, sprinkle with adobo seasoning, and cook for 15 more minutes to help cook evenly.
  3. While sweet potatoes cook, make the tomato salsa: mix all ingredients in a bowl then cover and place in the fridge to cool.
  4. Make the guacamole: mix all the ingredients in a bowl then cover and place in the fridge to cool.
  5. Once sweet potato fries are done cooking, remove from oven and place on a baking sheet or in cast iron skillet, top with cheese then place back in the oven for 10 minutes to melt cheese.
  6. Lastly, top fries with shredded carne asada, tomato salsa, guacamole, cilantro, and jalapeños!
  7. Serve and enjoy!
