I have an index of Paleo dinner recipes. I always need new recipes and I’m sure you do too. If you follow a Paleo diet, you REALLY always need dinner recipes. Dinner is a hard meal to plan for and I am trying to make it a lot easier for you. Here’s a post where you can come and find a lot of different quick and easy Paleo dinner ideas. You better check back too, because I am always adding more recipes.
How do you eat dinner at your house? Do you have a family that you eat at the dinner table with? Do you eat in front of the television? Do you make a meal and everyone just eats when and where they want, when they can? Are you alone to eat by yourself? Are your meals nice and relaxing? Or are you meals a really hectic time for you. I’m sure they probably aren’t the same every night either. Do you enjoy your meals?
Whatever your answers to these questions are. I’m not going to tell you how or where you should eat. Making Paleo dinners is more work than other recipes so I’m hoping that you can sit down wherever that is and enjoy your meals. You certainly don’t have to worry about having enough dinner recipes now. I’ve given you so many to choose from. You can have something different every night now, for 50 days, then start over again.
There are so many different to choose from on this post. However, when I started incorporating Paleo recipes into my diet, it was hard to find a good recipe. The hardest part was finding a recipe that did not have soy sauce in the marinade and was truly Paleo.
I was able to find all of these recipes that I can now rotate through my regular menu. I am very pleased with the list, especially since I have a variety of recipes now so that I don’t get tired of eating the same recipes over and over.
When you are on the Paleo diet, make sure you use organic, pasture-raised chicken and grass-fed beef. Guess what? As a bonus, “real” meat tastes so much better than regular meat. It’s just too bad that it’s so expensive. One way I have found to buy it more affordable is to buy it in bulk online at US Wellness Meats.
Easy Paleo Recipes for Dinner – So Easy You Don’t Need a Recipe
I recently asked a question “What are your favorite easy Paleo recipes” in our Paleo Facebook group and got a ton of good answers, so I thought I would make this post to help out the rest of you. I asked, “What are your favorite easy Paleo recipes for dinner that are so easy you don’t even really need a recipe for them?
The recipes that when you’re tired and can’t think of anything else to make that you always fall back on. It may not be pretty or fancy or the best-tasting thing in the world, but it’s easy and filling and good enough to eat again.”
Our favorite easy Paleo Recipes for Dinner
I’ll get you started with a few things my husband makes he loves that I don’t really like, but he loves, but I’ll eat them if I really am not in the mood to cook. This is mostly because I hate sausage and he loves sausage.
Crumble sausage in a pan with spices and seasoning and when it’s partly cooked add your favorite veggies, such as zucchini, summer squash and/or spinach. When it’s almost done, add chopped garlic and lemon juice.
Crumble sausage with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whip eggs with a little water and pour over sausage and stir until the eggs are done.
Crumble sausage or bacon and cook in a pan. While the sausage is cooking, in the Instant Pot cook Brussel Sprouts, seasoning, butter, salt, and pepper until al dente. When the sausage is done, strain the Brussel Sprouts then add to the pan with sausage and stir and cook for a few more minutes.
Put cauliflower in Instant Pot with water and add your favorite spices. Cook sausage, then put the sausage over the top of the cauliflower and cook until the cauliflower is done, about 10 minutes on steam. Then mix all together and it’s kind of like mashed potatoes with sausage and gravy.
Steak with spinach cooked in the same pan with the steak juices and a little more olive oil and garlic. To. die. for.
This is a tip more than a recipe, but I like to take any leftover food from dinner that I think will freeze well, like soups and sauces and freeze them right after we eat in small freezer containers. Cause we’re not so good at eating leftovers. But if we pull it out of the freeze and heat it up, it’s like a brand new, fresh meal that we’re not tired of and it makes a really easy meal on the night we eat it.
And it’s no more extra work to have leftovers or make leftovers on purpose to freeze. It works really well for spaghetti sauce, butternut squash soup, tortilla-less soup, hamburger soup, and minestrone.
It’s so awesome to go to a school concert, swim lessons, a school play, a school fundraiser or really any school event cause they always plan those right in the middle of dinner and be able to just grab something real quick. It’s even better if you plan ahead and put it in the fridge that morning so it’s unthawed and not a frozen chunk when it’s time to eat.

Easy Paleo Ideas for Dinner From Other People
Emily I. “My granddaughter begs for me to make this every time she comes over. First I cook up about 5 strips of bacon. Remove from the pan. Add a head of chopped cabbage. Saute. Add sea salt. When it’s at that perfect tender state crumble bacon over it and mix. Fabulous. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on this recipe.”
Fatimah J. “Cut up some vegetables you like with onions and garlic and add your favorite protein…cook it in a pan and done. Use whatever seasoning you prefer.”
Nikki L. “Cauliflower chicken fried rice. It’s just cauliflower rice, eggs, chicken, garlic and coconut aminos.”
Kristina D. “Any veggie I have on hand with ground meat. All in a pan.”
Stephanie P. “Oven Roasted veggies (usually zucchini, yellow squash, and onions) and chicken -seasoned with Ms. Dash.”
Susan G. “Grilled protein with a couple of veggies or baked sweet potato!”
Lois A. “Albacore Tuna/chopped hard egg/paleo mayo salad on salad greens.”
Samantha F. “Paleo Chili”
Mirinda B. “Frozen salmon cooked in a cast-iron frying pan from frozen, cauliflower rice, and steamed asparagus.”
Mirinda B. “Sardines on a salad if I can’t cook. I take the sardines and olive oil and mix in my salad with bacon, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil. Tastes great!”
Editor note – I had never tried sardines before. I’ve been super afraid to try them. They look so gross and smell so strong and I don’t really like tuna fish. I read reviews on Amazon and they look really popular and are rated really high and are so darn healthy for you, so I decided to give them a try in a salad as she mentions above. Not only was it the easiest meal ever, if you get over how gross they look, they actually taste like mild tuna fish. I like them way better than tuna fish and I felt really good after eating them.
I have also found I like to eat them like tuna fish, so mixed with some homemade mayo, a little mustard, Real salt, pepper and maybe some seasoning. Then I either put it on some Paleo bread or the Paleo almond flour crackers I buy at Costco (Simple Mills brand).
Jessica O. “Steak and salad with roasted sweet potatoes.”
Jessica O. “I had a giant steak with cucumbers, tomatoes, and broccoli with oil and vinegar tonight.”
Amy K. “Chicken, salsa, squeeze of lime, and chili powder in the crockpot. Cook for 6 hrs, shred chicken, serve over cauliflower rice (i buy frozen I’m lazy). I also love a chicken breast thrown on the George Foreman with a sweet potato from the microwave. So little effort lol.”
Heather P. “Last night I cooked up some grass-fed lean ground beef and seasoned it with chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne powder and added a little water so it was like taco meat. Then put it on top of chopped romaine and added some hot sauce. It was yummy and quick!”
Tracey G. “Grill meat – chicken, steak, pork etc and some asparagus, zucchini or squash. I like keeping things simple when I don’t have a lot of time.”
Onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Dip chicken in egg, the flour mixture, and repeat again
Put on pan spray avocado oil on top place in oven at 400 until done and outside edges are brown”
