Life has been crazy busy the last few weeks. That means…you guessed it, more slow cooker recipes for ya’ll!

I tried out this recipe when I saw it b/c it seemed so different from everything else I’d seen before.  The resulting dish had a really unique flavor and was very tasty! I made a bunch of adjustments to the original based on what I had at my house and some gut instinct. 🙂

This recipe is very paleo friendly – just leave out the sugar.
