Is everyone excited about the Super Bowl, or are you just waiting for it to end so you can watch the big reveal about Jack’s death on This is Us? (Spoiler Alert: don’t click any links if you’re still going to watch last week’s episode.) I love that show but I’m feeling a bit anxious about watching the next episode. And I can’t be the only slow cooker fan who’s been wondering how the latest developments on This is Us will impact the use of crock-pots am I?
I know in recent years some slow cooker fans have abandoned their slow cookers in favor of the quick-after-work feature of the Instant Pot. And it’s true that in the last few months I’ve been making a lot of new Instant Pot recipes myself. But even though I’ve become more of an Instant Pot fan than I ever imagined I’d be, I’m still firmly in the camp of those who love to use the slow cooker. And unless you’re using a 50 year old slow cooker, I don’t think you should worry about This Is Us!
Slow cookers became popular in the 1970s based on the premise of cook-all-day while you’re at work, but I rarely use them that way now. I like to use the slow cooker when I’m home puttering around (or working) and the slow cooker cooks something tasty and makes the house smell great. I’m one of those slow cooker cooks who likes to lift the lid and check on things once in a while, and I don’t care if that adds a few minutes to the cooking time!
I’ve been making low-carb slow cooker dinners for years, so for everyone who’s sticking with the slow cooker despite the story line on This is Us, I thought for this weeks low-carb round-up I’d share 10 Low-Carb and Keto Slow Cooker Dinners You’ll Make Over and Over! Make one of these over the weekend so you’ll have some healthy food for next week if you over-indulge a bit on Super Bowl Sunday. (And in case you haven’t nailed down your Super Bowl menu yet, here are 50+ Low-Carb and Gluten-free Super Bowl Appetizer Recipes and 10 Amazing Low-Carb Chili Recipes!)
These low-carb and Keto slow cooker recipes are the ones I make most out of the many slow cooker recipes on this site, and the recipes are all South Beach Diet friendly as well if you make sure to use lean meat and low-fat dairy if you’re making them for South Beach. And a few of these now have Instant Pot instructions as well, and some cook in a few hours in case you don’t plan ahead that well. Hope you enjoy trying some of them!
I use those inexpensive pork sirloin tip roasts from Costco for this delicious Low-Carb Slow Cooker (or Pressure Cooker) Pork Roast with Spicy Peanut Sauce. Serve with The Best Easy Cauliflower Rice and a veggie on the side!
If you like garlic and olives you’ll swoon over this Garlic Lover’s CrockPot Beef Stew with Olives, Capers, and Tomatoes! For a tasty low-carb meal I’d love this with Pureed Cauliflower with Garlic, Parmesan, and Goat Cheese.
If you’re fond of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, you must try this Slow Cooker (or Pressure Cooker) Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowl! I love this with a generous sprinkle of crumbled blue cheese for that real buffalo chicken combination!
Another cauliflower rice bowl meal I’ve made many times is this Low-Carb Slow Cooker Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowl. This has all the Greek flavors I love!
If you like mushrooms you’re going to love this Low-Carb Slow Cooker Mushroom Lover’s Pot Roast! This is another one that would be good with Pureed Cauliflower with Garlic, Parmesan, and Goat Cheese.
Another favorite slow cooker recipe with beef is this Low-Carb Slow Cooker (or Pressure Cooker) Green Chile Shredded Beef Cabbage Bowl with Avocado Salsa!
Low-Carb Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pot Roast is delicious served with something like Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan.
Slow Cooker (or Pressure Cooker) Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Cabbage Bowl is another delicious bowl meal for people who like Buffalo Chicken flavors!
Low-Carb Southwestern Pot Roast in the Slow Cooker is delicious served with Pureed Cauliflower, Cauliflower Gratin, or Twice-Baked Cauliflower. You can also eat this inside low-carb tortillas if you prefer.
Slow Cooker Southwestern Beef Stew with Tomatoes, Olives, and Chiles is another tasty low-carb slow cooker meal with Southwestern Flavors! Eat with cheese, sour cream, or diced avocado on top if you prefer!
So there you have ten amazing low-carb and Keto dinners that are good reasons to keep using your slow cooker even if you’re the biggest This is Us fan around! If you’ve tried one of these favorites of mine, I’d love to hear in the comments about how you liked it.
