I’ve been focused on feeding my family more Paleo-friendly meals (mostly meat, vegetables & fruit) and this is one of my latest creations. I’m planning on developing more Paleo recipes as many of you have mentioned that you follow this lifestyle. If you have a favorite Paleo slow cooker recipe, please feel free to share in the comments. Thanks!

This looks really good, but I hesitate to buy unusual (coconut amino’s) and potentially expense ingredients for one recipe which I usually don’t use again. Is there a substitute for it?
You can use a soy sauce, I have heard that faux soy sauce is a good alternative. Hope this helps!
What is the tapioca flour for? Is it a thickener and if so, can I substitute wheat flour?
This is a Paleo recipe, and ther1e are not all flour works for Paleo, but you can definitely substitute what every flour you would like. Make this recipe your own. Happy Crocking
Just wondering what the green pieces are in the picture. I don’t see anything in the recipe to account for them. They look like zucchini or maybe green pepper or …???
