Big fans of Paleomg here, I’m sure you are as well if you love great Paleo food… And even though Juli literally just threw this recipe together, I really loved this meal even more with a coconut Paleo Wrap. This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you a “Beef Bacon & Plantain Paleo Wrap”. I can’t believe how simple this recipe is, yet it was so filling, with such a wonderful taste! Not the low carb meal that I’m used to, but I dabble in and out of ketosis so I’m not worried! Plantains are so yummy that this isn’t one that I was going to pass up!
Starting off with bacon, you know this one’s coming out good from the get-go! Then, cook the plantains in that bacon grease. If you aren’t a fan, or if you already have bacon ready to rock, then I suggest some PrimalFat Coconut Ghee since it’s a little buttery with a touch of coconut sweetness to it. I think it’s a perfect pair for this meal, while being very healthy for your body. Finally, we work on the beef with garlic, onion, and spices. We’ve enhanced this meal with a touch of Paleo Powder for the win! Its gluten and MSG free, tastes great, and since it’s a great blend within arm’s reach, we tend to use it often.
- 6 strips of organic, nitrate free bacon
- 3 yellow plantains (you want them to be slightly brown, but not green)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- ½ tsp Paleo Powder
- Quantum Pink Salt and pepper, to taste
- Paleo Wraps
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large pan over medium heat, cook bacon until slightly crispy. Set aside.
- Drain excess bacon fat, leaving behind about 1-2 tablespoons.
- Cut off the ends of the plantains and remove the peel. Thinly slice the plantain lengthwise into 3 slices. Repeat with other 2 plantains.
- Add plantain slices to bacon fat pan and cook about both sides for about 2-3 minutes until they are slightly browned. Set aside.
- In the same pan, add minced garlic clove, ground beef, onion and Paleo Powder, salt and pepper. Cook until meat has broken down and completely cooked through.
- Now for the stacking of the casserole, you can do this any way you’d like.
- Place 3 plantain slices on the bottom, then 2 slices of bacon on top, then a couple spoonfuls of the ground beef mixture. Repeat two more times on top of the ground beef mixture.
- Put in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
- Scoop out and serve in some Paleo Wraps!

When this was served, I tried it with and without a Paleo Wrap…. And the bites with a Paleo Wrap took the trophy! That nice, light coconut taste enhanced this meal that much more, along with making it a nice finger food. I love eating with my hands whenever possible, I feel that much more in touch with my food that way. And Paleo Wraps allow me to connect in that respect, along with being incredibly healthy! Coconut is such a great food, that I am proud to serve up Paleo Wraps to anyone looking to eat right, get lean, and care about their body in general. With MCT’s (Medium Chain Triglycerides) from coconut, Paleo Wraps are a phenomenal way to get that healthy dietary fat for so many positive health benefits. Plus, they are low in carbs, they have no trans fats, there’s no grains, no gluten, no soy, and no GMO’s either. And they are now available in turmeric too, which are insanely good!! Anti-coconutters, you’ll love ‘em!
