Paleo/Primal Crockpot ideas
I would love it if we could post some of our faves here. I know there is another crockpot thread but some recipes call for some sketchy ingredients;) On the other hand many would cross over.
Ok who wants to post first?:clap:
I like making bone broth with either chicken or turkey. The broth with bits of meat is good. The other night I had a fresh batch and put in some Shiritaki noodles into my bowl for turkey noodle soup. I let the bones simmer on low for 24 hours to get the most calcium benefit from the bones.
I'm hoping to get some ideas from others here.
A couple of weeks ago 3/4 of my family stayed home sick. I gathered enough strength in the morning to put bone broth in the crockpot, then added whatever veggies we had on hand, shook a few spices in, then leftover cooked chicken closer to lunch time. It was good and easy.
I could definitely use some one pot crockpot ideas. I work 6 days a week, up to 12 hour shifts regularly, and the only way I can ensure staying on plan is having stuff hot and ready to go when I get up in the morning.
How about it? 6 or so good solid simple all day pots and Im good to go!
today I put a bag of frozen green beans on the bottom of my crockpot. Then I put some baby carrots on top of them, then a fat chuck roast. I sprinkled with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic on top. Its been cooking all day on low and smells AMAZING!
Paleo Shoulder of Pork Casserole
Simply take some shoulder of pork, diced, and throw it in the slow cooker with veg or your choice.
(I use tomatoes, red peppers, cabbage, carrots- literally whatever you have hanging around.)
Now add some veg stock. A small amount to ensure there is around ¼ of liquid in the slow cooker.
Add seasoning of your choice. BBQ, Herbs de Provence, Italian seasoning.
I love this with BBQ seasoning; cayenne, paprika, cumin, ground allspice.
Season with Salt and black pepper.
Now, leave for up to 8 hours. Serve with lots of chopped (BBQ- Coriander) (French/ Italian- Basil or Parsley.)
Slow Goan Chicken Curry
6 boneless chicken thighs
3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 dessert spoon of garam masala
1 dessert spoon of turmeric
1 red chilli
1/2 bar of organic creamed coconut
1/2 pint of water
1/2 carton of organic chopped tomoatoes
1 Aubergine (diced)
1 Courgette (diced)
1 Spanish Onion (chopped)
Thumb of ginger (chopped)
Juice of a lemon and lime
For the Cauliflower Rice
1 large cauliflower
3 spring onions
1 handful of chopped coriander
Knob of grass-fed butter
Chop the chicken thighs into small pieces and marinate overnight, or anything up to 8 hours for optimum flavour. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to marinate…. It will still taste great if you add the spices and chicken at step 2.
In a pan, add a teaspoon of coconut oil and heat. Add the Spanish onion and fry, add ginger and garlic, and sweat off for around 5-7 minutes.
Add chicken and spices and continue to fry for 5 minutes.
Add the creamed coconut and tomatoes.
Add half of the chilis (and some extra chili flakes if you like it spicy!)
Add the courgettes and the aubergines.
Simmer and add water if more liquid is necessary.
Allow the dish to simmer for around 30 minutes.
Add the juice of lemon and lime.
While the dish is simmering, take the cauliflower, and in a mini blender chop the cauliflower. Then in a separate pan, melt the butter and fry the chopped spring onions. Add the cauliflower, mix, stir whiles cooking for around 5 minutes.
When ready to serve, throw half of the coriander into the cauliflower, and use the remainder to garnish your curry. Garnish with fresh lime and red chili.

^ Dang. That pork sounds like the bomb. Will have to try it.
Another fav crock pot meal for me is to layer rice on the bottom, then add one whole chicken, lipton onion soup, cut up onions, mushrooms, and celery. Let simmer on low. Sometimes I will add one can of cream of mushroom. Just for the added taste.
