Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder Roast

Recipe #2: Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder Roast

Half the time, we shred the succulent melt-in-your-mouth pork in this recipe and serve it on tacos – kids, in particular, are big fans. The other 50% of the time, we add additional vegetables like potatoes and celery, and the entire family enjoys digging into their steaming bowl of aromatic deliciousness.

No Bean & No Tomato Paleo Chili In The Instant Pot

Recipe #3: No Bean and No Tomato Paleo Chili

Quite a few movies and TV shows feature characters debating whether a “real” chili has beans or not. Our team is split down the middle, so we won’t be commenting. Whether you just don’t like beans or tomatoes, or are steering clear due to dietary restrictions, this belly-warming recipe is worth a try. The veggies will keep you full and happy. Plus, it’s Whole30-friendly and AIP-compliant, too.

horizo Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles

Recipe #4: Chorizo Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles

This recipe checks a ton of boxes: Keto. Paleo. Gluten free. Dairy free. In addition, our Pasture-Raised Pork Chorizo Sausage comes pre-seasoned, which saves time during prep. If your family loves their carbs, serve this quick meal over everyone’s favorite pasta. Otherwise, the gentle crunch of the zucchini noodles balances the layered chorizo flavor while keeping the recipe low-carb.

Instant Pot Chicken Drumsticks

Recipe #5: Instant Pot Chicken Drumsticks

Chicken breasts often get all the attention in recipes for shredded chicken. But the huge upside of using chicken drumsticks is that cooking meat with the bone-in delivers added moisture and flavor. Beyond that huge advantage, this recipe also requires less than 30 minutes to land on your table. Serve with a simple salad or roasted veggies, and then enjoy the leftovers as a high-protein snack on some gluten-free crackers.

Guinness Beef Stew with Mashed Potatoes

Recipe #6: Guinness Beef Stew with Mashed Potatoes

It’s a rare recipe that manages to feel unassuming and undeniably elegant at the same time – this Irish stew is one of those rarities. If you’re convinced that stews only have appeal during the colder winter months, you just haven’t tried this recipe yet. Expect to be so impressed that you’ll add it to your regular recipe rotation all throughout the year.

Beef Short Rib Tacos

Recipe #6: Beef Short Rib Tacos

If pulling out a large slow cooker or Instant Pot feels like yet another task you’d rather skip, this recipe will deliver a remarkably tender and decadent result with your home oven doing all the work. And, it’s tacos, so you’re guaranteed to delight anyone sitting at your table.

Bone Broth for Slow and Pressure Cookers

Recipe #7: Bone Broth for Slow and Pressure Cookers

While bone broth is certainly not a dish all on its own (unless someone in your household is unwell and needs something nutrient-dense but light, in which case, bone broth is ideal), we’ve seen complicated recipes that require multiple pans and oven rotation schedules that make our eyes cross. For simplicity, making the most of kitchen time, and producing a nutritious and flavorful end result, we prefer using a slow cooker or Instant Pot (or another pressure cooker).
