8.... yes, EIGHT. Ocho. Huit. Acht. Otto. 形. Pounds LOST!
Not sure if it's the 100% no cheat Paleo week or the 31 miles I walked over the last 7 days but I'll take it!
David too and he's Crossfitting so the 8 is really huge because the muscle developement always slows the weightloss.... best part is he stopped sniveling for a cheat day :) He likes the number 8!
13 days left in our committment to 100% Paleo.... can't wait to see what the end game is now that we've purged the top layer of sludge from our bodies.

Want some Brisket? Super Yummy. Super Simple. Even a Caveman could do it.... LOL. Sorry.
What you need:
1 large flat beef brisket
2 tbsp kosher salt,
2 tbsp granulated garlic
1 tbsp onion powder
3 tbsp olive oil
1 & 1/2 cups beef stock
1 & 1/2 beer of your choice [whatever you like because you need to drink the other half!]****
|Braised Beef Brisket|
Remove the brisket from the refrigerator 2 hours before cooking and rub it down with the Salt, garlic & onion powder.
Ready to cook? preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Heat your pan [I used my large Le Creuset Enamel Dutch Oven] with olive oil and wait a minute. Place seasoned brisket, fat side down, in pan and sear on both sides until deep brown, approximately 10 minutes total.
Add beer and beef stock and bring to a boil over high heat [liquid should come just to the top of brisket; add more stock if needed]. Cover pan tightly and braise in oven for 4 hours.
It will be fall apart fabulous. ENJOY!
****NOTE: We ALL know that beer is so NOT Paleo.... use all stock if you don't want that minor infraction I was willing to live with it although I did not drink and donated that other half of a beer to the pot :)
