Re: Kettlebells in the Kitchen

Another Crockpot Recipe Tonight!!

I went to bed feeling sort of sick last night, so I made sure to take out something to Crockpot in the morning. I NEVER like to cook after work when I'm not feeling 100%.

Crock Pot Pot Roast
5 to 7 Carrots, Peeled and cut into big pieces
3 Sweet Potatoes, Skin on, cut into same size pieces as carrots
1 Bottom or Top Round Roast
1 Onion, cut into tiny pieces
1 to 2 cups of wine
1 to 2 cups of beef broth
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

You'll need to brown the outside of the roast before you throw it in the crock pot. Throw the olive oil and onions in a pan, let them hang out for a while on medium high (about 7 or 8 out of 10) until the onions are clear. Put the roast in the pan and let it brown on all sides (flipping to get everything brown.) You're not cooking it, just making it brown.

Once it's brown, transfer the roast and the contents of the pan into the crock pot. Put carrots and potatoes on top. Pour in wine and broth, equal parts. You only need enough to come up to the sides of the roast, not totally covering it. I usually just pour it in until I see the liquid poking through the veggies. Salt and Pepper everything.

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Re: Kettlebells in the Kitchen

Cold and rainy here, which means one thing in my house....

CHILI!

2 lbs ground turkey
2 bell peppers, cut into bite sized pieces
1 onion, cut into tiny pieces
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 8 oz can of tomato paste
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
3.5 tablespoons dark chili powder
Red Pepper flakes (to taste)
1/5 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper

Throw olive oil in a pan with the onions, let them hang out until the onions are clear. Toss in the meat, cook until you don't see anymore pink. Drain the meat and put into the crock pot. Combine everything else into the crock pot, stir until well combined. Cook on low for 7 hours.

EAT.

Re: Kettlebells in the Kitchen

Awesome recipe. Wait, does Paleo Solution or Primal Blueprint have recipes?

OK, I just made this. Awesome recipe. Here's what I had to do differently -
1. skipped the beef broth because I couldn't find any without MSG at the moment.
2. A little more than 2 pounds ground beef but honestly, who's counting.
3. Added chipotle peppers and adobo sauce.
4. Added cut up pumpkin to make it go even farther. Not sure if anyone has ever eaten pumpkin but unless you add sugar and pie spice it is really just like any other squash. Delicious.

Oh, and even better is that this recipe almost filled my 7 quart crock pot to the brim. So we have chili for dayyyyyys now. I'll probably freeze some. Thanks Amanda!

PUMPKIN IS AWESOME!!!! I've done it without the beef broth before too and its still super good, but never with chipotle peppers. Can't wait!!

I also should have mentioned how much it makes, LOL!! We end up eating it for lunch the next day too, then freezing some. Leftovers are my FAVORITE!!

Re: Kettlebells in the Kitchen

Made this last night, and its a good one for a night you need dinner ASAP, but really can't do another crock pot night (which I must admit, we rely on ALOT in my house!)

Shrimp and Broccoli

I admit we used to make this one with Pasta, so if you are not Paleo, or need a cheat meal, (though, really, if you're gonna cheat, just go for it. Don't eat something this healthy! LOL!) mix this with Penne, because it's AMAZING with pasta.

Okay, back on topic!

2 packages of broccoli (or, obviously, one big one.)
1 lb of shrimp (the medium sized ones kind of work best here, but really, whatever is on sale)
6 or 7 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
red pepper
salt and pepper
dry white wine (optional)

Cut up the garlic, toss in a big pan with the olive oil on medium heat (7 out of ten) for about five minutes. When the garlic starts to heat up, throw in the lemon juice, salt and pepper, and red pepper (however much you like. We like it pretty spicy, so it ends up being about a 1/4 of a teaspoon). If you're using it, also put in the wine.

Throw in the broccoli, let it cook for a while (we like our broccoli really REALLY cooked, so I let it cook for a solid ten minutes.). When the broccoli is done, toss in the shrimp. Cook until pick and not see through any more.

Like I said above, if you're into pasta, toss this all with the pasta.

It is SO tasty on its own though. <----- THIS MAKES ME HAPPY!!

Re: Kettlebells in the Kitchen

BTW, I would LOVE to see some other recipes here!!! I look at a bunch of Paleo websites, but I love to see how people use them in real life!

You could totally do this over spaghetti squash, I bet.
