Paleo Slow Cooker BBQ Short Ribs

I love my slow cooker. especially on days that I’m going to crossfit after work. Nothing says stress free dinner better than coming home, showering, and dinner being ready. Seriously, it’s like the best assistant ever.

I wanted to do something BBQ, but wasn’t sure what. Whole Foods had grass-fed beef short ribs, so I decided to try them. I keep experimenting with trying to get a good BBQ sauce that would be Whole Life challenge compliant, with no added sweetener. Even the all natural sauces in the store usually have some form of sugar. This has been my favorite version to date. It has a nice kick, and plenty of flavor. You can save the extra sauce to use later in the week. It’s still a little more tomatoey than I imagined – so I might play around with the ratios, but it’s still yummy. Experiment! Use it on ribs, chicken, steak…. Anything!

Paleo and WLC compliant BBQ slow cooker short ribs

1.5 lb grass fed short ribs (about 4)
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 sweet pear
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup Kalustyan’s southwest seasoning
1 tbsp organic ground ginger
3 tbsp organic stone ground mustard

Cook on low 8-10hrs

Note: You can get Kalustyan’s Southwest Seasoning at whole foods. It makes a great dry rub too. Read labels, but this one is great.


Thai Green Curry Chicken

feb17GreenCurryChickenI LOVE Thai green curry. In fact, whenever we go out for Thai, I usually get some form of green curry, and just skip the rice. So I was extremely excited to try Kalustyan’s Thai Green Curry seasoning mix. I think it came out awesome, and unlike going out to eat, I know exactly what’s in it, and I don’t have to worry about mystery ingredients or added sugars.


•4 teaspoons Kalustyan’s Green Curry Powder
•1 onion
•1 shallot
•3 small cloves garlic
•1 tablespoon coconut oil
•1 – 2 tablespoons olive oil
•1 can trader Joe’s coconut milk
•1 cup garlic sprouts
•1 can bamboo shoots
•1 can green beans
•4-5 baby Bella mushrooms
•1 package Asian salad greens
•1-2 lbs chicken breast

sauté the onions/garlic/shallots in a little olive oil and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Once it starts to brown add the curry powder, mix, and add the coconut milk. Let simmer for a minute, and Then add everything else. let it simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked and it’s done.
