Grilled Orange Ginger Pork Tenderloin

Grilled Orange Ginger Pork Tenderloin

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ This Asian-inspired meal is fast, easy and AIP elimination stage compliant. Easy grilled veggies and our Fennel Citrus Salad on the side make it worthy of Sunday supper.

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1 Orange, zested
  • 2 Medium Oranges, juiced
  • 1 Thumb of Fresh Ginger, peeled and grated or minced
  • 1 Large Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • ½ tsp Himalayan salt

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL pork tenderloin in the refrigerator overnight or
    defrost in its packaging in cold water.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a shallow glass dish. Arrange tenderloin in a single layer and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for one hour, or up to 24 hours. For most flavorful results, turn the tenderloin halfway through the marinating time.
  3. Bring pork to room temperature approximately 15 minutes before grilling, this will help ensure your meat cooks more evenly.
  4. While the pork is coming to room temperature, prepare this easy Fennel Citrus Salad - click here for the recipe.
  5. Preheat and outdoor grill to high heat.
  6. Remove pork tenderloin from marinade and place on pre-heated
    grill. Season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat until browned on all sides.
  7. Reduce grill to medium heat, cover and continue grilling, turning and moving until pork reaches internal temperature of 145 F. (Approximate cooking time will be about 15 minutes. Depending on your grill, you may need to reduce the flame and/or cook over indirect heat to ensure the pork is evenly cooked and does not burn.)
  8. Once pork reaches desired internal temperature, remove to plate,
    tent with foil and allow to rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the juices to settle back into the meat.
  9. While the meat rests, grill your choice of vegetables as a side - we suggest Baby Bok Choi and Green Onions or Leeks - follow this easy recipe for AIP Grilled Vegetables.
  10. Drizzle pork with the Honey Lime Dressing from the Fennel Salad.

Okay, I’m not gonna lie to ya, this Frozen Chunky Chocolatey Monkey Cake is a bit of a project! BUT … despite the abundance of steps, it’s really pretty easy, and the work can be spread over a couple of days – OR- you can choose your level of difficulty and simplify it!

I went all out on the decorations, and it was a labor of love as we celebrated the end of an unprecedented school year for my nephew.  It’s pretty impressive looking ice cream cake, and everyone, even the non-AIPers, loved it!

To be honest, I’ve tried to keep things as easy as possible without sacrificing the “WOW!” factor. There are only SIX ingredients plus the AIP compliant cookie mix that’s used for the cake base and decorations! (See below for more about this cookie mix or follow the link in the recipe to order!)

Since I’m not a pro recipe developer and I’ve never made an AIP ice cream cake before, I wasn’t sure if I would have enough to create one large cake or just a small one, so I opted to play it safe and created two smaller cakes instead.

In hindsight I was really glad I’d made two instead of one – it allowed me to have one perfectly decorated and ready to present to my guests and one pre-cut so I could avoid the stress of making sure my ice cream cake was thawed enough in advance.

And as if that wasn’t good enough, since we only ate one cake, I was able to safely store the other in a large freezer bag and have friends over for a nice treat more than a week later! Talk about an unexpected batch cooking victory!

Level of Difficulty

Don’t let all the ingredients and steps fool you, you can make this cake as complicated (you can add more layers and flavors if you want) or easy as you want it to be! 

I went all out because it was a celebration, but you can still make this look impressive with one flavor of ice cream and some cookie chunks and basic chocolate shell drizzle. OR or don’t worry about layering it and swirl the two flavors together instead … anything goes!

I really do recommend the chocolate covered bananas though for the Chunky Chocolatey Monkey Cake theme – they’re so easy and you’ll fall in love with them! I’d even serve them as a stand alone dessert in the future – they were a huge hit!  HINT: They keep really well in an air-tight container in the freezer and make a great treat when you need a little something!

Don’t have a spring-form pan or don’t want the hassles of trying to cut an ice cream cake? You can also make these into individual servings by using a muffin pan with parchment liners instead! Don’t have a muffin pan? Just buy some parchment liners and place them on a baking sheet and bake your cake base/cookies right in the liners.

Not into bananas or chocolate? Try different flavors of ice cream and decorate with freeze-dried or fresh fruit … the options are limited only by your imagination! You can find lots more ice cream recipes in the AIP Recipe Collection Facebook Group that will inspire you! 

Have fun with it!

Frozen Chunky Chocolately Monkey Cake

Frozen Chunky Chocolatey Monkey Cake

Yield: 12 Servings
Prep Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 1 minute

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ This one's a labor of love, but I think it's totally worth it for the WOW factor alone .. never mind the fact that this ice cream cake is 100% AIP Elimination Stage Compliant!

Ingredients

Layer 1 - Cookie Base (also used as cookie crumble and decorations)

Layer 2 - Frozen Bananas

  • 2 or 3 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen individually

Layer 3 - Dairy-Free Vanilla Ice Cream

Layer 4 - Dairy-Free Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

Layer 5 - Chocolate Shell Drizzle

Decorations - Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites

Optional Decorative Icing

Instructions

Layer 1 - The Cookie Base:

  1. Prepare the Eat Gangster Carob’Out Fudge Cookie Mix according to package directions.
  2. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper and line your spring-form cake pan or pans (either two 6-inch or one 10-inch) with a disc of parchment (I cut mine to the exact size of my pans).
  3. Once your cookie dough is ready to be worked with, split the ball of cookie dough in half. Use one half of the dough to make traditional cookies as directed on the package (these will be used as decoration elements) and use the other half of the dough to create a cookie base for your cake. If using two pans, split the dough in two. Roll the dough in your hands and start flattening it, then simply press it into your cake pan(s) so that it just reaches the edge – try to avoid having it touch the sides of the pan to ensure an easy release.
  4. Bake your cookies and the cake bases according to the package directions. Allow them to cool completely.

Layer 2 - Frozen Bananas

  1. Line the sides of your cake pan(s) with a ring of parchment paper to make releasing your cake a breeze.
  2. Slice the frozen bananas into 1/4" thick coin shapes. You'll need enough to create a single layer in the bottom of your pan(s).
    TIP: I keep a supply of whole, ripe, peeled bananas individually wrapped in my freezer for use in smoothies or ice cream so I didn't even need to plan ahead!
  3. Arrange the slices on top of the cooled cake bases and place them in the freezer.

Layer 3 - Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

  1. In a large liquid measuring cup or bowl combine the vanilla ice cream ingredients until well blended and refrigerate until cold.
  2. Pour the chilled vanilla ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for churning.
  3. When the ice cream is ready, pour or scoop it into your pan(s) and smooth with a spatula.
  4. Crumble a few of your prepared cookies on top of the vanilla ice cream layer and return it to the freezer until firm.

Decorations - Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Bites

These can be made in advance and stored in an air-tight container a day or two in advance if you prefer.

  1. Line a plate, tray or storage containers with parchment paper – these will need to go in your freezer so make sure it’s a suitable size.
  2. Mix the carob and coconut oil until it is completely smooth.
  3. Work quickly to coat the frozen banana slices with the chocolate shell mixture. I find it helpful to use a toothpick to dip and flip them and then move them to your prepared parchment.
  4. Work until all of your banana slices are chocolate covered. Store in
    the freezer.

Optional Decorative Icing

The optional decorations for this cake can be made, piped on parchment paper a day in advance and stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.

  1. Mix the three decoration ingredients together until very, very smooth. If you want white decorations, omit the carob but note that you may need to use less banana or more coconut concentrate so the decorations will be firm enough.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and pipe your icing into various shapes, designs and sizes. I found it best to use a large decorating tip.
  3. Place the decoration in the fridge until firm. If you won’t be using them until the next day, store them in an airtight container so they don’t dry out.

Layer 4 - Dairy Free Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

When your vanilla ice cream layer is firm you can begin this step.

  1. Using a high speed blender, simply break the frozen bananas into small chunks and pulse to start breaking them up.
  2. Add the carob powder and blend on high speed until smooth, scraping the sides often.
  3. If your blender is struggling, allow the mixture to warm slightly and try again or add a teaspoon of water at a time and try blending again. Be careful not to add too much water.
  4. Spread the chocolate banana ice cream in the pan and return to the freezer until firm or overnight.

Decorating

When you're ready to put the final touches on your cake, prepare the chocolate shell drizzle

    1. Mix the carob and coconut oil until it is completely smooth.
    2. Remove your cake from the freezer, remove the spring form pan ring, place your cake on a cake plate and remove the parchment ring from the sides.
    3. Drizzle the chocolate shell over the cake or pour it along the edge and allow it to run down the sides. Be aware that it solidifies quickly so try not to pour too much in one spot or it will be too think and difficult to get a fork through to eat.
    4. If you’re using the optional decorative icing, remove it from the fridge and allow it to warm slightly while you continue.
    5. Continue decorating your cake by arranging the frozen chocolate covered banana bites on the top of your cake.
      It looks nice to cut some in half.
    6. Used some of the Carob’Out Fudge Cookies as decorations – beak some in chunks and crumble others so you have lots of different textures.
    7. If you’re using the optional decorative icing you’ll find once it has warmed up a little that it’s pliable and you can quite easily arrange it around the base of the cake. I’m no expert at icing so
      pre-piping it onto parchment the day before I planned to serve the cake really took the stress out of the process.
    8. Once you’re happy with the look of your cake, place it back in the freezer so everything freezes in place.

Serving

Remove your cake 15-20 mins prior to serving so that the ice cream softens a little.

Cutting an ice cream cake can be tricky. Warm a large knife by running it under hot water.

Rather than trying to cut all the way across the full diameter of the cake, insert the tip of the knife in the center of the cake and slowly press down.

Rinse and warm the knife and continue cutting into slices.

Enjoy! ♥

Leftovers can be stored in the freezer for several days or even a week in a Freezer-capable ZipLoc bag or airtight container if you have one suitably sized.

AIP Grilled Chicken and Romaine with Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

Grilled Chicken & Romaine with Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Our quick and easy twist on a classic with a creamy AIP Caesar dressing that doesn't involve coconut! Keep it simple or dress it up!

Ingredients

Marinade :

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing :

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL chicken breasts in the refrigerator overnight or defrost in their packaging in cold water.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a shallow glass dish. Arrange chicken in a single layer and allow to marinade for a total of 30 minutes (15 minutes in the refrigerator and 15 minutes at room temperature – see below. (NOTE: Do NOT over-marinate your chicken or the proteins will begin to break down due to the acidity of the marinade.)
  3. While your chicken is marinating, prepare the dressing.
  4. Add all dressing ingredients to a deep bowl or large liquid measuring cup and blend well using a stick/immersion blender. If your dressing is too thick, blend in ½ tsp of water (or additional lemon juice – test for flavor before you decide) at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  5. Refrigerate and allow the flavors to meld. (NOTE: you can make your dressing ahead and store in the refrigerator as the lemon juice will keep the avocado from browning.)
  6. Trim and discard the root end of the romaine lettuce, removing only as much as necessary so the head remains intact.  Cut the romaine in half lengthwise and rinse under cold running water (do not soak). Wrap the romaine in paper towels or a clean kitchen towel to remove excess water.
  7. Bring chicken to room temperature approximately 15 minutes before grilling, this will help ensure your meat cooks more evenly.
  8. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat.
  9. Remove chicken breasts from marinade and place on pre-heated grill. Season with salt and pepper. Place halved or quartered lemons cut side down on grill.
  10. Allow chicken breasts to cook over high heat until they release easily from grill, about 5 minutes. Turn chicken breasts over, season again with salt and pepper and allow to cook on second side until chicken releases easily from grill.  Reduce flame or move chicken
    to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or flareups.  
  11. Continue grilling lemon cut side down as chicken cooks. Cook lemon until slightly softened and grill marks have formed, about 5 minutes. Remove lemons from the grill and let stand.
  12. Continuing grilling chicken, turning and moving until cooked through and an internal temperature of 165F has been reached. (NOTE: If your chicken breasts are very thick and they begin to char or become over cooked on the outside, it may be necessary to cut them in half and place the uncooked,  center cut on the grill or to flatten slightly before grilling. We found our truLOCAL boneless skinless chicken breasts to be the perfect size for grilling – no cutting or pre-flattening was required.)
  13. Remove chicken from grill and allow to rest, tented with foil, for
    a few minutes prior to slicing. This allows the juices to settle back into the chicken.
  14. While the chicken is resting, place the washed and dried romaine hearts cut side down on the grill. Leaving lid open, cook until grill marks form, about 3 minutes. Gently turn the lettuce using tongs, and grill for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from grill. (NOTE: This method infuses a smoky flavor, but take care not to over-cook the lettuce, it should be lightly charred but NOT cooked through, retaining its fresh salad crunch.)
  15. Plate your grilled romaine heart and top with sliced grilled chicken breast, a drizzle of AIP Avocado Caesar Dressing and the grilled lemon on the side. Add a squeeze of grilled lemon to your salad and enjoy!

Notes

But what about the bacon, croutons and Parmesan for this Caesar?

Our goal with this dish was to give you an easy recipe that would get you off your feet quickly, so instead of bacon we're infusing the romaine with that smoky flavor from the grill.

Not afraid of a few extra steps in the kitchen? Feel free to add some AIP compliant bacon, croutons and Parmesan crumbles to this Caesar!

Where do you find these things?

Bacon - Read more about compliant bacon here.

Parmesan Crumbles - Check out this recipe, it sounds amazing!
(Be sure to use NON-Fortified Nutritional Yeast - you can learn more about that here)

Croutons - Try these Casabi crackers! So good!

AIP Grilled Pork Ribs with Maple Glaze with Grilled Leeks and Radicchio

AIP Grilled Pork Ribs with Maple Glaze

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Drool worthy ribs the whole family will love! Shhh! They won't even know they're AIP.

Ingredients

Spice Rub

  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (stage 1 reintroduction)

Glaze

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL ribs in the refrigerator overnight or
    defrost in their packaging in cold water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Remove ribs from packaging and pat dry.
  4. Optional, but recommended: When preparing pork ribs, take a minute to remove the ‘silver skin’. This is a thin membrane on the underside of the rack. Simply slide a knife under the silver skin anywhere along the rack and peel it away. Go here for a simple tutorial that might just put a smile on your face!
    (We found that our truLOCAL ribs had very little silver skin.)
  5. Mix all spice rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
  6. Massage both sides of the ribs with the spice rub. Place ribs on a
    parchment lined baking sheet and tent (not wrap) with aluminum foil.
  7. Roast for 1 hour in a 350F degree oven.
  8. While ribs are roasting, combine all glaze ingredients in a small,
    heavy bottomed sauce pan, place over high heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat
    and simmer uncovered until mixture is reduced and slightly thickened,
    approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
  9. If you're serving AIP Grilled Vegetables along side your ribs, you can use this time to prep them. (Once it's time to grill the ribs, both the ribs and your veg can be grilled at the same time.)
  10. Remove ribs from oven after 1 hour, set aside.
  11. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
  12. Place ribs on the preheated grill and brush with glaze, allowing
    glaze to caramelize. Turn every few minutes continuing to brush with glaze.
    Reduce flame or move ribs to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or
    flareups. Continue basting and turning for approximately 3-5 minutes using all
    of your glaze or until ribs are thoroughly coated and caramelized.
  13. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
