From my blog CookingCaveman.com, my favorite paleo recipes for foods you might find in your favorite Jewish deli. These are the foods I grew up with and try to recreate as often as possible. All recipes are available at CookingCaveman.com.
  1. PALEO MATZOH BALL SOUP
    0c92467a 179a 4f2e b26c 360fbcda0f79
    The matzoh balls are made with organic almond flour instead of matzoh meal. 100% gluten free! http://bit.ly/1T1fzCU
  2. TRADITIONAL BRISKET
    27c0f23d 99ac 489e af0b 7f09c99eba5e
    Using a brisket from a grass fed cow makes it easy to cook a paleo Rosh Hashana meal. Happy Jew Year! http://bit.ly/1KJwAfg
  3. STUFFED CABBAGE
    Bb0141d0 3a6e 48f5 a023 a843d7d66f04
    Using grass fed ground beef and chopped cauliflower to replace the rice. I like mine savory, but if you like yours sweet, just add some raw organic honey and/or some raisins. http://bit.ly/1FZTIFf
  4. CHOPPED LIVER
    3dd53da1 8012 4f25 bc8a de235772dd61
    Just make sure the livers and hard boiled eggs are from chickens raised organically on open pastures, eating their natural diet of bugs, worms, and grass seeds, not corn and soy. http://bit.ly/1IhXf2q
  5. FARFEL
    88362a84 a448 4f1a b5c7 85ee626f3c6f
    Traditionally made with little pearls of barley pasta, this version uses cauliflower as a paleo substitute. Love it bursting with mushrooms and caramelized onions. http://bit.ly/1GoXDPo
  6. MUSHROOM BARLEY SOUP (with no barley)
    E3dd8ec5 a291 4e80 aeda 36b719c2323e
    Again replacing barley with cauliflower. The slow cooked grass fed beef flanken or short ribs make this soup one of my favorites. http://bit.ly/1Ipsvj5
  7. SALAMI SANDWICH
    A7a567c3 d70f 4ba6 aec0 ddab1b7eda9d
    I found a farm in Wisconsin that ships grass fed salami (they call it garlic summer sausages though in the land of goyim), and it contains only a little Himalayan salt. Closest to paleo I've found so far. I often eat sandwiches on my famous paleo bread. Delicious! http://bit.ly/1T1fy1Z
  8. CABBAGE SOUP
    21320e31 fe4a 4c41 88c6 83d1efeccc8e
    The red variety, very easy to make, just throw it all in a crockpot in the morning and a warm dinner is waiting for you when you get home on a cold winter's night (which in Los Angeles is 70 degrees or lower). http://bit.ly/1KJwAfi
