Slow Cooker Meat and Veggie

Slow cooker meat and Veggie meals are a mainstay of any meal plan because they are win-win. They are 70% vegetable, 30% meat, are super easy, and give awesome leftovers. What’s not to love. They are also super versatile and can make a large variety of meals. Basically it is choose 1. meat 2. veggies 3. spices/herbs

Meat can be any roast: beef, pork, etc

Vegetables: Any. Frozen is very quick and convenient – pour in the crock pot straight from the freezer.

  • Add meat of choice
  • Add 2 cups broth or bone broth
  • Add 1/2 tsp psyllium husk powder
  • Add several shakes of dulse flakes/salt/pepper
  • Then fill up with vegetables: brocolli, cauliflower, summer squashes, carrots, onion, garlic …
  • Add spices that inspire you that day…

Today was a pork roast, topped with 2 bags of “riced cauliflower” and a bag of petite fresh carrots. It literally took, like, no work. Then I added a Tbl each of Sage, Rosemary and Parsley.

Next week it could be marjoram, oregano, onion and garlic. The next week curry with squash! Yumm.

Also, you can mod this into a ‘stew’ by increasing the broth and psyllium. The psyllium is an awesome thickener, but go easy in the crockpot as i discovered there is a threshold where it no longer qualifies as ‘thick’ and instead has graduated to ‘gummy’. Bleh.
