Throw some chunks of grass-fed beef, whole tomatoes and your favorite veggies in the slow cooker for this whole 30 and paleo chili recipe.
I’ll repeat this until the cows come home – slow cookers were made for chili. They’re the perfect food to cook in your slow cooker. I love chili because it’s almost impossible to go wrong. You can make yours vegetarian, packed with meat, using 3 beans, etc. Since it’s still September and I still have my husband on his first whole 30 program I decided to make mine as healthy as possible while still being whole 30 compliant and packed with flavor.
As soon as I saw my latest shipment from 5280Meat I knew exactly what I wanted to do with some of the meat. Included in my shipment was a whopping 5 pounds (whoo hoo) of grass-fed stew meat. You know what that means…lots of good slow cooker recipes coming up. I took 1 pound of the stew meat and paired it with some of their grass-fed ground beef to create the perfect beef mixture. If this spice blend looks familiar it’s because this recipe is a revision of my Slow Cooker Chili recipe. The seasonings are pretty much the same outside of a few adjustments. It’s important to brown the meat prior to adding it to the slow cooker so you can drain the grease. Nothing worse than super greasy chili. If you don’t have ghee then do not use butter as a replacement just omit it. Or buy some ghee here.
