Pakistani Kima Recipe

Found this recipe about 5 years ago, and it’s quickly a family favorite. When we first moved to Florida. We were starting to eat a more Paleo Friendly Diet. He was training for a half Iron Man Triatholon and we were wanting something filling and nutritious. We were looking into Paleo/Whole Food recipes that would fit our budget and be EASY!!! This is a hearty meat-loving-whole-food meal. This meal is packed with tumeric, cinnamon, curry and more wonderful spices that help our bodies grow and heal naturally. The benefits of tumeric are astounding, in my other article the Benefits of Tumeric you can find additional scientific based evidence on what those benefits are.


1 large onion

4 TBSP butter (or coconut oil)

1 lb ground beef (or venison, buffalo, etc.)

1 TBSP curry powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

15 oz can of tomatoes (diced)

Dice the onion.

In a large skillet, melt the butter or coconut oil and add diced onion. 

Cook three minutes or until starting to become translucent.

Add the ground beef, curry powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric and cook until the meat is browned. 

While the meat is cooking, peel and dice the sweet potatoes into small pieces and set aside.

Once meat is cooked, drain and add the diced tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and green beans.

Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes have softened. Check after ten minutes and add a couple tablespoons of water or chicken broth if needed.

Serve warm and enjoy!
