10-Minute Paleo Round Steak & Tahini Sauce Recipe

I totally disliked tahini, when I tried it the very first time. It took me a couple of years to accidentally try it again and actually like it that time.

Consider it as another example of how we hate certain foods up until the moment when we love them =D.

For those of you that don't know, tahini is a paste made entirely from sesame seeds. It can be dark, light, organic and even conventional. Try them out and see what you like more, but don't go too crazy about it - it's quite high in omega-6. Something that we, paleo community, would pay attention to.

While tahini it's not really great on its own, mixing it with other ingredients (e.g. lemon juice) is a whole new story. And this recipe proves it.
