Notes

We use the slowcooker year round. Why? It turns basic ingredients into flavor rich, comforting meals. This dish is super simple and utilizes items many have on hand! Note: it is only grain-free & paleo if using a non-grain side, like cauliflower rice. Make ahead tip: Have a side ready, pop this in the slow cooker early in the day and you’ll have dinner waiting. Lasts in the fridge for 4-5 days and freezes beautifully.
