Tis the best season of the year, the season for the slow cooker! I live for a good slow cooked meal in the Crockpot. There is nothing better than sitting down for a nice dinner that's been cooking all day long filling the house with those delicous aromas. Not to mention, most slow cooked meals typically take at least a little less effort than a traditional, non-slow cooker recipe. The Instant Pot is also a favorite as far as cooking things quicker, but more often than not if the recipe can be done in the slow cooker, it is my preference. Give me those home cooked meal smells all day long.
The weather has been a little chillier than I'd like lately but that means its the perfect weather for breaking out the trusty Crockpot and making some tasty slow cooker recipes. I enjoy cooking many of my old favorites but also hunting down new recipes to try in between.
Today I am going to share with you a few of my favorites, most of which are Whole30 and Paleo friendly:
Just Jessie B Crispy Carnitas *This reciple is actually for the Instant Pot, but I like to make it in the slow cooker. Same directions, just cook on low for 8-10 hours. Smells amazing cooking all day.
Jays Baking Me Crazy Pulled Pork *This recipe is actually for the Instant Pot, like the one above. Same thought process, cook on low 8-10 hours.
Paleo Running Momma Chicken Pesto Stuffed Sweet Potatoes *Not technically a slowcooker recipe, but if you make shredded chicken (chicken breasts, bone broth in slow cooker) you can easily put this one together.
Whole30 Slow Cooker Cookbook Smoky Sweet Potato Chili
Easy Shredded Chicken Tacos *1-2lbs chicken breast and a jar of salsa. Cook on low 6 hours, shred the chicken and that's it. Easiest recipe ever.
Pioneer Woman Italian Drip Beef *With a few modifications, this can be Whole30/Paleo. Make sure your bone broth is sugar free or use vegetable broth instead. Serve with cauliflower rice, potatoes or another veggie side instead of bread.
Sally's Baking Addiction Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls *Definitely not Whole30 or Paleo but if you can handle gluten and dairy in your food freedom, this are a nice indulgent weekend breakfast treat.
What are some of your favorite slow cooker recipes? I'd love to get some new ideas to add to my list for this season.
Happy slow cooking!
