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

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!

Ingredients

For Chicken and Veggies

  • 1⁄4 cup pineapple juice
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut lengthwise into 11⁄2-inch-thick strips
  • Cooking spray (we used avocado oil)
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1⁄4-inch slices
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1⁄4-inch-wide slices
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1⁄4-inch-wide slices
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For Guacamole

  • 4 ounces avocado (about 1 small avocado)
  • Juice of 1⁄2 lime
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

FOR ASSEMBLY

  • 8 tortillas (We love Siete brand or local corn tortillas)
  • 1⁄2 cup (2 ounces) shredded cheese (we used cheddar)

Directions

  1. For the chicken and vegetables: In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the pineapple juice, lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, and 1⁄2 teaspoon of the salt.
  2. Place the chicken in a large bowl and add the marinade, making sure to evenly coat all the pieces. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.
  3. Adjust an oven rack in the center and another 4 to 6 inches from the broiler and preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a large rimmed sheet pan with oil and set aside.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off any excess, and place it on the prepared pan. Add the bell peppers and onion to the bowl with excess marinade, and toss well. Spread the vegetables evenly on the pan around the chicken and sprinkle with the remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bake on the center rack until the chicken is almost cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, for the guacamole: Mash the avocado in a small bowl with a fork. Add the lime juice, salt, and cilantro, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  7. Switch the oven to high broil. Give the vegetables and chicken a good toss, move to the top rack, and broil until the vegetables are slightly charred and the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Place the tortillas directly on the top oven rack and broil until warm and slightly charred, about 1 minute, or char on an open flame on the stove top. Slice the chicken into smaller pieces and mix with the vegetables.
  8. To assemble, evenly distribute the chicken and vegetables among 8 tortillas. Top with the guacamole and cheese.

Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green beans and season with salt and peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften. Reduce heat and carefully pour 1/4 cup water in hot skillet (it will sputter, so be careful of steam) and cover pan with a tight fitting lid to steam for 10 minutes. Monitor carefully to make sure the water does not completely evaporate before the beans have steamed, adding more if necessary so they do not burn.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together coconut aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and sriracha and set aside.
  3. In a separate small bowl whisk arrowroot and 4 teaspoon water to make a slurry to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
  4. Once beans have steamed, uncover and add shrimp and toss. Add in coconut aminos sauce ingredients, mixing to ensure it cooks evenly.
  5. When shrimp has cooked through, add in slurry and bring to a simmer to thicken. Once thickened, immediately remove from heat.
  6. Serve hot and serve over cauliflower rice or white rice.

This easy Sheet Pan Salmon with Sage Pesto and Root Vegetables is heart and flavor-packed weeknight dinner recipe!

This salmon dinner is smothered in a unique sage and pistachio pesto and is cooked along side hearty fall root vegetables.

This Sheet Pan Salmon with Root Vegetables is the perfect dinner any night of the week!  Sheet pan dinners with fish are so versatile: in the summer, you can use fresh zucchini, bell peppers, and corn; in the fall and winter, root vegetables; and in the spring, asparagus, peas, and artichokes. The salmon is topped with an awesome sage pesto that is a switch-up from the classic basil version.  It pairs so nicely with the heartier root vegetables, but feel free to use basil in the warmer seasons if you are using other veggies.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or oil of choice
  • 4 medium fresh poblano chile peppers, roasted directly over an open flame or broiled for 5 minutes until blackened and blistered
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 6-ounce can green chilies
  • 1 14.5 ounce can cannellini beans
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper 

Garnishes

  • Tortilla chips, crumbled
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges

Directions

  1. Roast Poblanos: Turn on the flame on your gas stove and place poblano peppers on the flame. Turn often until charred. OR in the oven: Place the poblano peppers on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes, turning halfway, or until the skin is browned and blistered.
  2. In a large dutch oven, heat oil on medium-high heat.
  3. Add onion, garlic, and carrots. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  4. Chop the poblanos into small pieces then add the poblano peppers and the spices and stir for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Pour the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, green chilies, beans, and spices. Stir until well combined. Cover and bring soup to a boil.
  6. Once at a boil, turn down heat and add in chicken. Let simmer covered for 20-25 minutes until chicken is fully cooked through and no pink remains. Take soup off the heat.
  7. Gently take the chicken out of the soup. Let cool, shred and set aside.
  8. Using a liquid measuring cup, scoop 4 cups of soup into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add pureed soup and shredded chicken back into the soup and stir well.
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  10. Serve warm with desired toppings!

Recipe Notes

  1. Instead of transferring 4 cups of soup to a blender, feel free to use an immersion blender in this step if desired! If using an immersion blender, make sure to leave some of the veggies whole, and avoid over-blending. The soup shouldn't be a pureed soup!
  2. This soup isn't super spicy, but to avoid spice, scrape out seeds from any peppers!
  3. Want to sub the poblano pepper?  Try: Anaheim, bell pepper (milder), additional canned chile peppers, cerrano pepper (hotter). OR you can omit.

Ingredients

Crispy onions

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with butter and set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, heat avocado oil until hot. While waiting for the oil to heat up, whisk the egg and arrowroot together in a medium mixing bowl. Working in batches, dip the onion into the egg/arrowroot mixture and then place into the hot oil. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until a dark brown. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towels.
  3. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil in an 8-quart saucepan. Add the green beans and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately plunge the beans into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.*See notes for recipe steps if you would rather roast the green beans.
  4. Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onion, garlic and coconut aminos and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the cashew cream and mix well. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Cook over low heat until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Season green beans with salt and pepper. Add green beans to skillet with the sauce and mix until the green beans are well covered. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. *do not salt the green beans if you roasted them.
  6. Pour the green beans and sauce into the 9 x 9 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with crispy shallot and bacon. Bake for an addition 15-20 minutes, or until green beans are tender and bubbly.
  7. Serve warm!

Recipe Notes

*Cashew Cream: Soak 1/2 cup cashews in 2 cups of water for 4-6 hours or overnight. Drain soaked cashews and rinse well. Place in a high-speed blender with 1/2 cup water. Blend until creamy and thick. Add 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

**Roast the green beans instead of boiling them:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 °F. Lay the green beans on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Season with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil, or oil of choice. Toss well.
  2. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender.
  3. While green beans bake make the sauce and the crispy onions in steps 2 and 4. Add the roasted green beans to the sauce, toss well and place in a 9 x 9 baking dish.
  4. Top with crispy onion and bacon. Bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly!

    Ingredients

      Pecan Mixture

      Egg White Mixture

      • 2 egg whites
      • 1/2 teaspoon salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

      Other Ingredients

      Cajun Garlic Dipping Sauce

      3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set next to the three mixing bowls.
      4. Place chicken in the egg mixture, dredge in arrowroot flour, place back into the egg mixture and then dredge in the pecan mixture. Make sure to coat the chicken generously in the pecan mixture.
      5. Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Splash a drop of water in it, if it sizzles, it is ready to go!
      6. Carefully, place the chicken in the hot skillet and fry for about 8-10 minutes, or until outside is golden and no pink remains. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
      6. While chicken is cooking, place the Cajun garlic dipping sauce ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend until just combined. Taste and adjust lemon and spices as necessary. Pour into desired serving cups and set aside until ready to eat.

      Sheet Pan Buffalo Chicken and Veggies

      This Chicken Cacciatore has the best fall-of-the-bone chicken and is packed with veggies and hearty flavor! A healthier version of the classic Italian dish everyone will LOVE, that’s made quickly in your Instant Pot pressure cooker! Easy Chicken Cacciatore

      Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore

      This fall-off-the-bone chicken is hearty and flavorful, and serves a crowd or makes for delicious leftovers. The pressure cooker is one of my new favorite gadgets. Why? Because a chicken this tender and flavorful usually requires cooking low and slow, yet we made it quick!

      What do you eat chicken cacciatore with?

      Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore

      Serve it over rice, cauliflower rice, or gluten-free rice pasta for the perfect meal!

      Which instant pot to get?

      I love my 6 qt. Duo. If you’re often cooking for more than 4 people, I’d go for the 8 qt.

      What can I cook in instant pot?

      Lots of things, but let me say, not EVERYTHING. I’ve seen people wanting to make every single thing in the Instant Pot and I don’t think it works like that. It’s used for convenience. It cooks fast and definitely can cook things uniquely that you can’t get over the stovetop. With that said, it cooks food using water or other cooking liquid. Pressure is created by boiling a liquid, such as water or broth, inside the closed pressure cooker. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure and allows the temperature to rise. So since it steams, you wouldn’t want to make things like steak in your pressure cooker. Does that make sense?

      How do you use an instant pot?

      Based on what you’re cooking, add a cup or so of cooking liquid or of water to the pressure cooking pot. Lock the lid in place and make sure the valve is in the sealing/pressure cooking position. Select a pressure cooking button and let it cook! Use quick release or natural release (see below) once done, then enjoy!

      Ingredients

      • 8 chicken legs and/or thighs
      • 2 teaspoons sea salt, use more as necessary for coating chicken and seasoning at the end
      • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper, use more as necessary  for coating chicken and seasoning at the end
      • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil
      • 1 medium onion, sliced into thin strips
      • 3 carrots, minced
      • 1 red pepper, diced medium
      • 1/2 pound mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
      • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
      • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
      • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
      • 2 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
      • 1 bay leaf
      • 1 cup chicken broth
      • 14.5 oz can Tuttorosso diced tomatoes in juice
      • 14.5 oz can Tuttorosso diced tomatoes in juice, pulsed in a food processor or blender
      • 2 tablespoons freshly parsley, plus more to garnish
      • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
      • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

      Directions

      1. Pat chicken dry and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Set the pressure cooker to the saute setting at high heat. Add in oil. Working in batches sear chicken until golden brown, about five minutes on each side, adding more oil as necessary. The chicken should not be fully cooked at this stage but the skin should be nicely browned. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
      2. Add onion, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms to the pressure cooker and saute until vegetables are soft, scrapping up browned bits, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add bay leaf, chicken broth, tomatoes, fresh thyme, fresh parsley, and balsamic vinegar. Return chicken to pressure cooker and press into tomatoes until they are mostly covered.
      3. Place lid on pressure cooker and lock in place. Cook on high pressure for 12 minutes. Release pressure using quick release valve and remove lid. Remove bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (If a thicker sauce is desired, you can remove the chicken to a plate and simmer sauce until it is the desired thickness. Do this before seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.)
      4. Garnish with parsley and serve over rice, cauliflower rice, or gluten-free pasta.

      Recipe Notes

      * Don't have a pressure cooker, cook this on the stovetop as well using Nanny's Potted Chicken on page 160 of the Lexi's Clean Kitchen Cookbook as a reference! In a large braising pan or Dutch oven, follow steps 1-2 as directed, cover, lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is tender, about 90-100 minutes.

      I have been wanting to make my own Beef Pho for a long time now and I must say, I am so HAPPY that I finally did! This Instant Pot Pho made in the pressure cooker is light, packed with flavor, and makes for the perfect healthy and warming meal! Loaded with minerals such as collagen, vitamins, and protein, plus all the veggie and aromatic add-ins, I can’t wait to make this again and again.

      Instant Pot Pho

      Simply make the broth, add in the herbs, protein, and veggies of choice and BOOM delicious Pho all week long! This recipe makes a TON of broth and can be stored either in the fridge for up to 4-5 days or in the freezer for up to 4-6 months!

      Instant Pot Pho

      I love ordering Pho, but something they use when making it really messes up my stomach! I also care about the quality of meat and bones I am consuming, so making my own was a no brainer! Plus, the Instant Pot makes the bone broth come together QUICKLY! No 24 hours, here!

      What is an Instant Pot?

      The Instant Pot is a seven-in-one multi-cooker that works as an electric pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, warmer, and sauté pan all in one.

      Ingredients

        Bone Broth

        • 4 lb total beef bones (using a mix is best, bone marrow, knuckles, and/or ribs, shank bone)
        • 2 medium onions, sliced in half
        • 2 cloves garlic, skin removed
        • 2 medium carrots, sliced in half
        • 2 knob of ginger, sliced in half
        • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
        • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
        • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
        • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
        • 2 teaspoon salt
        • 4 whole star anise
        • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
        • 6 cups of water

        Add-ins

        • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
        • 1 cup bean sprouts
        • 1/2 lb grass-fed sirloin steak, sliced very thinly (freeze meat for 15 minutes before cutting to make the slicing easier), cook on the stove with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
        • 1 lime, cut into wedges
        • 2 scallions, sliced thinly
        • 1 box of rice noodles, par-cooked based on package instructions
        • 1 bunch Basil
        • 1 bunch Cilantro
        • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
        • 1 tablespoon fresh mint
        • Fresh Hot Red Pepper, sliced

        Directions

        1. Place onion, garlic, carrot and ginger on a sheet-tray. Broil for 10 minutes, or until charred.
        2. Parboil the bones: While vegetables are cooking, fill a medium sized pot with water, cover and bring to a boil. Once at a boil, turn down heat to medium low and add the beef bones. Cook for 2-3 minutes at a high simmer, never at a rolling boil. Drain and skim off any fat that remains on the bones. Place the bones in your pressure cooker.
        3. Add charred veggies, apple cider vinegar, spices, and enough water to cover the bones to your pressure cooker.
        4. Cover and seal the pressure cooker. Using the manual timer, set the pressure cooker to high for 45 minutes. Once done, shut off the heat and let sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, open the pressure cooker and strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer until it runs clear. About 2-3 times.
        5. While broth is cooking, cook the steak. Heat a small skillet with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Add in steak and cook on medium heat until no pink remains. Set aside in a bowl until ready to eat!
        6. Par-cook your rice noodles based on package instructions and set aside until ready to eat.

        7. Assembly: Place bone broth in desired bowls. Add in desired toppings and devour!


        Recipe Notes

        • * Bone Broth Storage Tips: Place the remaining broth in a covered glass container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you would like to freeze it to make it last for 4-6 months, place it in ice cube trays and transfer cubes to a freezer bag! Make sure that the bone broth is fully cooled before you freeze or refrigerate it.
        • When the bone broth cools, you might see a layer of fat on the top. Simply skim it off using a slotted spoon.
        • * Ask your butcher if they have thinly sliced beef. We get ours from Bucher box, who has the thinly sliced beef pre-sliced. If you are looking for a great way to get grass-fed high quality meat right to your door, it is for you! As a promotion for all of YOU, you will get $15 OFF + Free Bacon (uncured, pastured, and sugar-free)! Order and learn more about it here!
        • *Make it in your slow cooker!
        • Follow steps one and two as directed. Add charred veggies, apple cider vinegar, spices, and enough water to cover the bones to your slow cooker. Cover, set it to low, and cook for 8-10 hours. Once done, strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer until it runs clear. Follow the rest of the steps as directed and devour!

        Want to know something cool?  Genova has started a program called Digital Traceability and it’s pretty awesome. Genova customers simply enter the 10- to 15-digit number located on the bottom of their Yellowfin and Albacore tuna to receive answers to six specific questions:

        1. What is My Tuna? Visitors are given an initial description of their tuna or other seafood species.
        2. Where Was My Tuna Caught? These results include a world map showing the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Area where the tuna or other seafood was caught, and a link to a species-specific stock status report from the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF)
        3. What Fishing Method Was Used? This section includes both the fishing method and vessel size.
        4. What Fishing Vessel Caught My Tuna? This information includes fishing vessel name, nation of registry and fishing trip start and end dates.
        5. Where was My Tuna Processed and Canned? The can code indicates where the seafood was processed and canned, which may not necessarily be where it was caught. The processing method is subject to Genova’s strict compliance requirements andstringent Business Ethics and Labor Code of Conduct.
        6. How Does Genova Support Sustainability?

        I love working with companies who are doing their part to show us where our food is coming from!
