I wasn’t totally clear on what makes a pork chop a pork chop, so I turned to the internet for a bit of help.
Since we released our favorite Paleo Pasta Recipes last week, I thought it only appropriate to follow up with this list of great Paleo Meatball Recipes as well! What stood out to me though, was that many of these recipes are not totally necessary as a pasta topper –they are amazing as a standalone dish, meaty starter, or take-away poppers for lunchtime or a snack on a long commute.
A crock pot (a.k.a. slow cooker) is one of those things that, if you don’t have one, make you question why you would need yet another home kitchen appliance. Then once you have it, you can’t remember how you ever lived without it!
But enough about the benefits… whether you’ve been thinking of getting a crock pot for a while or are already a devout convert to slow cooking, here are 144 of the best Paleo crock pot recipes to keep your crock pot busy and your stomach satisfied!
We all know that simmering is a key trick to achieving the maximum flavor absorption and perfect texture of whatever meat you happen to be cooking. With a crock pot, it doesn’t matter the cut– everything seems to come out soft and tender to perfection. Not to mention the ease of filling it up, turning it on and going about your day without worrying about food burning or a pot boiling over!
I’ve always thought that apple and mustard go amazingly well with pork, so I thought why not combine everything together and use the slow cooker to make it easy and effortless!

Regular (large-size or regular loaf-size) Paleo meatloaves are delicious and easy to make, so if you’re not already making Paleo meatloaves for dinner, then you should get started.
But Paleo mini meatloaves are also fantastic. They can be a fantastic snack that you can take with you on the go, a great appetizer to impress your family and guests, or a fun way to get kids to eat vegetables and organ meats.
So, here are some of our favorite Paleo Mini Meatloaf Recipes (sometimes they’re also called Paleo Meatloaf Muffin Recipes or Paleo Meatloaf Cupcake Recipes, or sometimes something completely different too, like the first two recipes on our list).
I’m a huge fan of cooking in bulk, and I’ve written about my 3 step system to ensuring you always have Paleo food available (that post is here).
So, in this post, I wanted to give you a quick and delicious example of how to cook 3 meals super fast using slow cooker pork + 3 other easy meals to add some variation (so, lunch and dinner for 3-4 days or dinner for a whole week)!
Most of the lasagne I had eaten my whole life came from frozen packages. In fact, I had never even considered how lasagna was made until around 8 years ago when Jeremy found this amazing Lasagna recipe on Allrecipes.com.
We’ve tested this lasagna recipe a ton of different ways, and we’ve paleofied it a ton by taking out the sugar, the wheat-filled lasagna sheet pasta, the Italian sausage (which sometimes contains additives or sugar), and of course, the 3 types of cheese!
But because of the delicious herbs (we changed them to fresh herbs) in this recipe, it still tastes amazing (plus we added a bunch of great ingredients to compensate)! So, give this Paleo lasagna recipe a try and let me know what you think!
This Paleo meatloaf was really delicious and super easy to make. It went perfectly with my Paleo ketchup (recipe here), and instead of the regular wheat-filled bread crumbs, I made a quick batch of my microwave Paleo bread (recipe here), crumbled it, and then toasted it to make some Paleo bread crumbs to go into the meatloaf mixture.
