Paleo Crock Pot Sancocho

Oh wow, Henry’s been at it again. I have been beyond busy with work, so my wonderful husband got the super handy crock-pot out and filled it with:

Paleo Crock-pot Sancocho

Sancocho is a Colombian soupy dish filled with meats, veggies, yucca, potatoes. We used to make Sancocho all the time before smartening up and eating paleo/primal. He surprised me with this most interesting and slightly naughty spin on traditional Sancocho. He is amazing with his surprise creations.

  • 5 lbs of chicken breast cubed
  • 2 lbs of pork chops cubed
  • 2 thick slices of bacon (no nitrates, etc.) diced
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 2 medium yellow onions, sliced
  • 4 vine ripe tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 1/3 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 3 servings of coconut milk = 1 cup full fat
  • 1 cup beef or chicken stock organic low sodium
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Put all ingredients into the crock-pot and cook on low for at least 8 hours. I had to hit the road very early this morning while he was still finishing his coffee. Henry put all ingredients into the pot before leaving for work, by the time I got home and entered the house, I smelled the wonderful aroma of dinner cooking, and it put a smile on my face. I did not have to cook; he gave me the night off. 🙂 I had no stress and I could go to spin class, and still enjoy our family visiting for their last week and just enjoy each other’s company. We love our crock-pot!
