AIP Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Recipes

Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Cranberries and Rosemary

– Phoenix Helix

Ingredients: beef stew meat, radishes, celery root, carrots, bone broth, salt, onions, cloves garlic, fresh rosemary, cranberries.

Beef stew must be one of the most favorite comfort foods ever! And cooking it slowly like this gives you tender beef infused with the flavor of rosemary. Blending the onion and garlic and adding it back to the pot gives this stew a lovely gravy, making it a hearty and satisfying meal after a busy day. If you are not into celery root you could use turnip or parsnip instead.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Chuck Roast and Onions

– Whole Life Eating

Ingredients: chuck roast, sweet yellow onions, ground cinnamon, garlic powder, salt.

The cinnamon in this recipe gives the beef a wonderful flavor! This is a simple dish, but you could add in vegetables or other herbs if you prefer. Once the roast is cooked, you could also remove and puree the onions to make a gravy using a hand blender to serve over the meat. If you have any leftover beef, it would taste so good shredded and served in lettuce wraps with shredded vegetables.

Beef Stroganoff in Slow Cooker

– Kaiku Lifestyle

Ingredients: beef stew meat, sea salt, full-fat coconut milk, mushrooms, carrots, arrowroot starch (optional), broth, thyme (optional).

Using a slow cooker for this stroganoff means that this recipe is so quick and easy to do! It has a truly traditional flavor but uses coconut cream instead of the heavy sour cream. If your slow cooker tends to leave this recipe with quite a lot of liquid in it, you can either reduce this at the end or serve in on a baked sweet potato to absorb the juices.

Paleo Slow Cooker Beef Stew

– Unbound Wellness

Ingredients: beef bone broth, beef stew meat, Japanese white sweet potato (or parsnips), leeks, rosemary, thyme, sea salt.

With the traditional combination of rosemary and thyme, this beef stew has a hearty consistency and is full of flavor. If you are using bone broth as the base for this stew, it is better if you use homemade as this lets you control the ingredients and ensure you are not ingesting preservatives. Parsnips or radishes would work well here if you can’t get white sweet potatoes.

Crockpot Beef Heart Stuffed with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onions

– The Paleo Drummer

Ingredients: beef heart, garlic, onion, beef broth, olive oil, bacon, fresh mushrooms.

If your family are wary of trying heart, this recipe could be the solution! The meat itself is tender and tastes of beef and the garlic, bacon, and mushrooms create a super-tasty stuffing. This would be a great dish for a celebration – in some countries, it is traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve. Once cooked, slice this down and serve with your choice of vegetables.

Ingredients: beef stew meat, avocado oil or tallow, sea salt, beef broth, pumpkin or butternut puree, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, dried rosemary, dried thyme, carrots, parsnips, pearl onions or onion, arrowroot starch/flour.

This lovely thick stew is reminiscent of the ones Grandma used to make – a real stick-to-your-ribs recipe! You do not need to serve anything else with this stew as it is a complete meal in itself. You can even use frozen vegetables without defrosting them first, making this dish even easier to make. There is also a lovely herby taste from the rosemary and thyme.

Beef Brisket

– Elana’s Pantry

Ingredients: flank rib (shoulder roast or stew meat), chicken stock, onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt.

Slow-cooked brisket is so tender that it falls apart once cooked, making it a great ingredient for shredded beef recipes, but it makes a satisfying and healthy meal as it is, served with a side of cauliflower mash. Even if you are using stew meat, which tends to be cheaper, the beef comes out tender and juicy. Perfect for Sunday lunch!

Lemon-Basil Shredded Beef

– Eat Heal Thrive

Ingredients: basil leaves, oil, plum vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, lemon zest (optional), beef roast, bone broth.

If you have to follow AIP, sometimes you just run out of ideas for dinner, but this recipe is delicious! You have the fresh taste of the lemon and the aromatic basil and the whole flavor of the dish is enhanced by the vinegar. If you don’t have plum vinegar, you can use balsamic instead. The meat in this recipe was served in blanched collard leaves, but the choice of serving is up to you.

Osso Buco Stew with Kale and Baharat

– Tri Holistic Nutrition

Ingredients: Osso Buco with bones, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, beef bone broth, Baharat, sea salt, kale, Italian parsley.

Baharat is a spice blend common in Near-Eastern cuisine and it combines such spices as allspice, nutmeg, and cloves – eliminate the Baharat to make the dish AIP-friendly. One suggestion would be to serve this over cauliflower rice.

Beef is a very satisfying meat and can be served throughout the year, especially in a stir-fry form like this.

There is a freshness to the sauté from the asparagus and parsley which complements the beef really well. This is a simple recipe that lets you emphasize the flavor of the beef. If you don’t have button mushrooms then just use whatever ones you have.

Stir-frying is a quick and easy way to cook meat and vegetables, meaning that you can have a delicious meal in minutes. This recipe is so tasty, sweet and tangy thanks to the oranges and seasonings that it sets off the flavor and texture of the beef really well. If you prefer not to use beef then chicken is a great substitute.

Here is another dairy-free stroganoff recipe that can be useful for a quick lunch as it only takes a few minutes to cook.

Ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, carrot, white onion, ground beef, cremini mushrooms, beef broth, apple cider vinegar, salt, parsnips, fresh tarragon, full-fat coconut milk.

In this recipe, parsnips take the place of the risotto rice. They don’t absorb the liquid in the same way as the rice but give the risotto a great texture. Once the dish is cooked, cover and rest it for a couple of minutes to allow the flavors to marry together.

Steak Salad with Coconut Pan-Fried Peaches

– Paleo Flourish

Ingredients: baby kale, peaches (white or yellow), filet mignon beef steaks, coconut oil, salt, olive oil, balsamic vinegar.

If you are a bit wary of trying fruit with meat, just remember how lovely duck and plum sauce goes together! The peaches add a lovely fresh note to the salad and another texture to the meat. White peaches have a milder flavor than yellow ones, but either one works well here. Please remember to rest the steak after cooking, as this will allow the meat to relax and become more tender.

Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps

This dish would be perfect for a dinner party, where all your guests sit around the table and fill their own lettuce wraps from the beef dish at the center. The authentic Thai flavors of lime and fish sauce give a depth of taste and freshness that everyone will enjoy. Instead of the ground beef, you could use chicken or pork and change the broth to chicken instead of beef.

AIP Burgers and Sausage Recipes

The AIP Burger

– Comfort Bites

Ingredients: mushrooms, avocado oil, bacon, salt, beef, onion, avocado, lime juice.

Instead of a bun, this recipe uses mushrooms to hold the burger and Portobello mushrooms would be perfect.

Remember to pour out the liquid from the mushrooms before assembling the stack.

Mini Zucchini Avocado Burgers

AIP Roast Beef Recipes

TSL’s Osso Buco

– This Sydney Life

Ingredients: osso buco (veal shanks), onions, carrots, celery, garlic cloves, bacon, fat, fresh rosemary, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, bone broth (or beef stock), silverbeet or Swiss chard.

You don’t need to have a slow cooker to make this delicious dish – a heavy casserole dish will do the job nicely. This meal is a one-pot wonder and the end result is fantastic! The meat simply falls apart and you have all the goodness from the bone marrow that is extracted by the cooking process. This would taste good served over veggie mash.

Ingredients: chuck beef roast, granulated garlic, granulated onion, salt, turmeric, cooking oil, fresh cilantro, water, onion.

This ‘roast’ meat almost has an Asian taste because of the garlic and turmeric. As you brown the seasoned meat before cooking, the flavors of the spice rub get the chance to permeate into the meat, giving it an even better depth of flavor. You could serve this as it is, or with some roasted vegetables or as a filling for a baked sweet potato.
