I'm new, and seeking some easy recipes?

Hi crew, I'm James, been lurking here, time for a post. I've been on paleo for just over two weeks now, and it's going well, despite having ~30ml milk in my espresso and occasional oats for breakfast. (looking to gain weight for weight training as in two weeks on paleo I've gone under my ideal min weight), I've been keeping it as real as possible.

I'm at a point where I need to put together some easy recipies to keep things exciting.

I'm told I'll get a "device that will remain nameless for SPAM reasons that mixes, chops and cooks" for xmas and I'm looking for some recipes.

Cheers

Hmm, I think I cooked it, but with it going in the slow cooker, I don't think it matters. Chopped for sure!

Do you cook the bacon first? Chop it up uncooked?

James: Edited my answer. No hard feelings, I hope. I saw a new guy and I saw a link to a product I hadn't heard of. Got my spider sense tingling.

Easy recipe that requires no device - Take a heap of green leafy things, top them with meat or fish or eggs, add some fat like an avocado, add something sour like lemon or lime juice. Easy, low clean up.

I know this one looks complicated, but it's not bad, plus the results are worth it. Make enough and freeze some for later!

Fall Apart Pork Stew

Ingredients

* 2 tbsp Onion Powder
* 1 tbsp Parsley
* 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
* 1 1/2 tbsp Seasoned Salt
* 1 1/2 tbsp Pepper, Black
* 1 tsp Marjoram, Dried
* 1 tsp Cinnamon
* 1 tsp Nutmeg, Ground
* 2 lb Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast
* 4 cups Baby Spinach
* 1/4 cup Olive Oil
* 2 tbsp White Flour
* 1/4 cup Butter
* 1 cup Onions
* 1 cup Celery
* 1 lb Mushrooms
* 1 1/2 cups Low Sodium Beef Broth 50% Less Sodium
* 28 oz Wegmans Stewed Tomatoes
* 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper (nutrition Data)
* 3 medium Zucchini - Raw
* 2 medium Yellow Squash (aldi)

Directions

  1. Toss together the onion powder, parsley, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, seasoned salt, 1 1/2 tablespoons black pepper, marjoram, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large, resealable plastic bag. Add the cubed pork, toss until well coated, then seal, and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a 9x9 inch baking dish with half of the spinach leaves.
  3. Pack the marinated pork into the baking dish, and cover with the remaining spinach leaves. Cover the pan with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 3 hours, or until the pork is tender.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the flour has toasted. Scrape into a heatproof dish, and set aside. Melt the butter in the pot, and stir in the onions and celery. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook until tender; stir the flour mixture back into the pot to coat the vegetables.
  5. Pour in the beef broth, stewed tomatoes, cooked pork and spinach, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Simmer 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Stir in the butter beans, yellow squash, and zucchini. Simmer 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

My favorite go-to recipes always involve a large amount of grassfed ground beef and my venerable cast-iron skillet. Some easy starts:

Stroganoff: Saute some white or baby bello mushrooms and a large onion with the beef, and a little fish sauce for flavor enhancement (this is totally optional if unbound glutamate/inosinate gives you problems). Salt generously and add pepper. When the liquid cooks down (there will be quite a bit), remove from the heat and add sour cream until it makes a nice smooth gravy. Eat as-is or with some spaghetti squash or other noodlefied vegetable.

Pizza steak: saute ground beef with just some salt and pepper. Just before serving, top with crushed tomatoes (or pizza sauce if you get one without sugar), your favorite herbs, and some fresh mozzarella.

Hi and welcome to the community!

I recently started a website, http://mypaleocrockpot.blogspot.com/, to share my recipes with the community. I find that my crockpot is INVALUABLE in "sticking to it" and I use one of my three almost every day.

There's not a ton there right now, but I'm adding to it all the time, and will get it spiffy and organized over the next few months.

Congratulations and all the best!
