I love one-pot meals. It means less clean up for me. While I love cooking and creating delectable masterpieces in the kitchen, I DO NOT like cleaning up afterward (and I’m a super messy cook!).

That’s why I have been enjoying One Pot Paleo by Jenny Castaneda recently. This book is filled with delicious recipes, most of which can be made quick and easy on busy weeknights. Plus, the minimal use of various dishes makes me happy because I can clean the kitchen up fast and easy.

One Pot Paleo Features:

  • Eighty (80) recipes with full-color photography
  • A bonus chapter containing eleven (11) basics used throughout the book
  • Six (6) chapters of one-pot recipes:
    1. Sizzling Cast Iron
    2. Comforting Casseroles
    3. Scrumptious Stir-Fries
    4. Bake Broil or Grill
    5. Warming Soups
    6. Stews, Sensational Salads
  • Recommendations for ingredient swaps and substitutions
  • Tips on weekend meal preps for weeknight meals
  • An allergen index that clearly identify potential allergens that may be present in each recipe

Recipes Include:

  • Pan Seared Steak
  • Portobello Sandwiches
  • Chicken Pesto Zucchini
  • Plantain Pizza
  • Loaded Spanish Tortillas
  • Hawaiian Meatballs
  • Austrian Pancake Bites
  • Braised Short Ribs
  • Filipino Chicken BBQ
  • and more!

One extra special thing about this book is that there are 17 healthy, paleo-friendly Filipino recipes, most of which you’ve never seen in a paleo cookbook before. While so many cookbooks recreate the same dish over and over again, One Pot Paleo introduces us to new dishes and new flavors from around the world.

I am super excited that Jenny is allowing me to share her recipe for the Skirt Steak Fajitas here today. I <3 fajitas!

Skirt Steak Fajitas :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

This is hands down the best fajita recipe you will ever try. While this recipe calls for beef, you can easily sub chicken. Once you eat this recipe, you'll never order fajitas at a restaurant again!



  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ c (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ c (60 ml) coconut aminos (you could also use organic Tamari)
  • 1 ½ tsp (5 g) cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ¼ c (10 g) cilantro, chopped
  • Juice and zest of 2 limes


  • 1 ½ lb (675 g) skirt steak
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 large onion, sliced into strips
  • 2 jalapeños, stem and seeds removed, sliced into strips
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, chopped
  • ¼ c (10 g) cilantro, chopped


  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a gallon-sized (3 ¾ L) zip-top plastic bag. Place the skirt steak in the bag, press out the excess air and seal. Lightly massage the bag to make sure the marinade coats every inch of the skirt steak. Place it in the fridge to marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Remove the skirt steak from the bag and set aside the remaining liquid. Generously season both sides of the skirt steak with sea salt and black pepper. Place the steak on the pan and sear for 5 minutes. Flip to the other side for another 5 minutes for medium. Remove from the pan. Place it on a cutting board and cover with foil to rest.
  3. While the beef is resting, scrape off any excess burned brown bits that are stuck at the bottom of the pan. Add the sliced bell peppers, onion and jalapeños. Add the marinade that was used for the meat and sauté vegetables for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Thinly slice the skirt steak across the grain and place it on a large serving plate. Top with the cooked fajita vegetables, avocado slices, chopped tomato, and cilantro.
