Instant Pot Meatloaf

What I dislike about making meatloaf is that it takes forever to bake! And you usually want a side dish with it which takes even more time to cook up. BUT NOT ANYMORE. This meal is made completely in the instant pot and it couldn’t be easier.

If you haven't checked out the recipes on Paleomg.com you must. I haven't tried one this I didn't like! Better yet, get her cookbook!

Slow Cooker Vegetable Korma

This was a perfect "I'm freezing my ass off in Minnesota " weeknight meal!

I was surprised at how filling it was! While it is a "slow cooker " recipe, mine decided to short out about 20 minutes into cooking! So, I transferred it to the stove and simmered for about an hour. It we DELICIOUS!!

Enjoy! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large cauliflower, broken into florets

  • 1 large zucchini sliced

  • 2 large carrots, chopped

  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas (sub for extra green beans if completely paleo)

  • 1 cup green beans,chopped

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1/2 large onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3/4 can coconut milk

  • 2 T curry powder

  • 1 T sea salt

  • 1 tsp garam marsala

  • 2 T almond mea

Directions:

1. Throw it all in the crockpot!
2. Go on with your day!

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 5 hours, until the mixture is very thick. Serve immediately or allow to cool completely.
Notes
What differs from a curry is that a korma is supposed to be more thick than liquid.
As with any stew or curry, this tastes better the longer it sits.
Refrigerate for up to one week or freeze for up to two months.

Pickle Juice Chicken {Paleo + Whole30}

This has got to be the easiest thing I have ever made! What's the secret ingredient that made my kids gobble it up? Pickle juice! Yes, you read that right! Place chicken breast in a large Ziploc bag. Add 1 to 2 cups dill pickle juice, a tablespoon of brown sugar (omit for Whole30 compliance) 2 teaspoons of salt and a teaspoon of black pepper and let them soak for a couple hours. Remove the chicken breast from the brine, and then pat dry the chicken breast with paper towels. Brush each breast with olive oil and season with a little bit of & salt black pepper. Cook the chicken in a skillet or on the grill. Trust me, make extras your kids will love it!

Crab Cakes {Paleo + Whole30}

Yes, crab cakes can be made without bread crumbs and not fall apart! Who knew?!?! 

You just need some good coconut flour and Paleo mayo and you are good to go! 

Also, I highly recommend growing your own chives. I have a black thumb but my herbs from HerbKits.com seem to be up to the fight and keep me full stocked!
