Paleo beef rice recipe

What You Need to Make this Slow Cooker Paleo Beef Recipe:

  • Boneless chuck roast (feel free to double this amount if you want extra meat for future meals)
  • Coconut aminos (this is a soy-free and gluten-free alternative to soy sauce)
  • Coconut sugar
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Toasted sesame oil
  • Ginger 
  • Cauliflower (to make the grain-free “rice”)
  • Red bell pepper
  • Onion
  • Broccoli florets
  • Scallions
  • Sesame seeds

Can You Use Premade or Frozen Cauliflower Rice?

Yes! We take advantage of frozen cauliflower all the time, and love that it’s readily available now. There isn’t much difference between fresh or frozen except that the frozen can hold a little bit more water in it. So if you don’t want to do the extra step of making your own cauliflower rice, feel free to use premade!

    Classic Chicken Soup (Slow Cooker & Instant Pot)

    There is no better cure for anything than Chicken Soup. The chicken and broth warms the soup, and the vegetables brighten everything up. It’s a classic for a reason! Plus this Slow Cooker Chicken Soup is simple to make and easily freezes!

    Classic Slow cooker chicken soupClassic Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

    I am SO excited about this soup. Growing up in a Jewish home, chicken soup was a staple (and still is) for holidays and anytime someone started to come down with something. I’ve eaten A LOT of chicken soup in my day, and this is hands down my favorite. PLUS, it’s literally the easiest recipe to throw together. It has all the flavors of your classic chicken soup just like grandma used to make. Packed with tons of veggies and tender chicken, this classic comfort soup is perfect for anytime you need to warm yourself up on a chilly day.

    Crockpot Chicken Soup Ingredients

    • Whole Chicken
    • Garlic
    • Onions
    • Carrots
    • Celery
    • Fresh Dill
    • Salt and Pepper
    • Bay Leaf

    Classic chicken soup in the crockpotHow to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

    What I love most about this recipe is how simple is to make. Simply:

    1. Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.
    2. Shred the meat off of the chicken, and stir back into the soup.
    3. Serve hot, or cool down before storing in the refrigerator.

    Want to make it faster in the Instant Pot?

    1. Place veggies in the bottom of your Instant Pot.
    2. Top with chicken, herbs, and spices.
    3. Add 6 cups water.
    4. Push ‘Soup’ and let cook for 30 minutes. Let slow release or use quick release.
    5. Shred chicken, discarding skin and bones.
    6. Adjust salt and pepper as desired.
    7. NOTE: For frozen chicken, cook for 40 minutes.

    Should Noodles be Cooked before Adding to Soup?

    While this recipe doesn’t specifically call for noodles, you could add them if you want. If you cook the noodles in the soup they will suck up most of the broth, so it’s best to cook noodles separately. However, it’s better to add the noodles directly to single hot bowl of soup instead of to the whole pot because the noodles will continue to suck up the liquid of the soup and become waterlogged.

      This Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is the ultimate pulled pork recipe! Tender and flavorful pulled pork cooked in a homemade sweet and smoky refined sugar free BBQ sauce… doesn’t get much better than that! Summer BBQ perfection.

      Pulled Pork | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

      Ah, the beloved slow cooker. So convenient, so simple, and always delivering delicious meals! I have been wanting to make pulled pork since I purchased my slow cooker months ago (late, I know). After tons of recipe research, I have developed a recipe that is both spicy & sweet, tender, and very simple. The house smelled amazing while this was cooking. Eat it simply in a dish (I like it with some grilled pineapple), in a sandwich, for taco night, or even in quesadillas, the options are endless!

      Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken

      Prep Time 5 min Cook Time 3 hr Total Time 3:05 Serves 4

      Ingredients

      Directions

      1. Place 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1⅓ to 1½ pounds) in the insert of a slow cooker. Pour enough chicken broth over the chicken to cover, about 1 cup.
      2. Add garlic, diced onion, garlic powder, sea salt, and ground pepper.
      3. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
      4. Remove the chicken and shred with two forks.

      Recipe Notes

      • If you don’t have leftover cooked chicken on hand to make this recipe, buying an organic rotisserie chicken from the market is the most convenient solution. Almost as convenient, and what I do most often, is to throw some chicken breasts in the slow cooker. It’s easy, economical, and you control the ingredients.
      • Makes about 3 cups shredded cooked chicken.
      • Stovetop Directions: Place chicken breasts into a pot and pour in enough water to cover the chicken. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken meat is no longer pink, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken breasts to a bowl, allow to cool slightly, and shred the chicken meat with 2 forks!
