One of our staples is a pork roast. We do them in the crock pot for about 8 hours, and add different veggies depending on what we have. Generally we add carrots, onions, celery, or potatoes. If we do potatoes we will wait until the last 2 or 3 hours of cooking so as to not make them become mush.
This one actually is one of my favorites, and I think my wife’s too but she’s really picky about left overs, so I have to finish them. We take chicken thighs and cover them with thin slices of onion in the cast iron. Just above medium temp so they brown slightly. Then I will flip them after about 10 minutes and kick the oven on while I cook the second side. When the oven’s heated up I put them in there. They make their own juice much like the pork does and become quite juicy.
Lettuce Wrap Hamburger
This is just a hamburger patty with relish, mustard, and homemade mayo. I use about 3 large lettuce leaves to wrap it up in. My wife likes to add avocado. We generally will have a bit of coleslaw along with it for some extra veggies.
Every once in a while we don’t do a pork roast or chicken thighs during the week. We will brown some ground meat and use it for various different things. The one that is my favorite to do with ground beef is the taco salad. With a clean salsa, and by adding a bit of cumin and chili powder to the meat we can have a nice flavorful taco salad or lettuce wrap. I also have a few recipes for paleo tortillas, but we don’t do those very often.
