Paleo Slow Cooker Spicy BBQ Herb Rubbed Pork Butt

We all know that barbecue is a flavor attracting many pallets. For most of us a year round season of outdoor barbecuing is simply not available. Which leaves us all to often waiting for the 1st yearly BBQ to happen. No longer is there a need for that “weather only” permitting thrill. Simply adding woodchips to a crockpot offers a fun & simple way to bring barbecue flavor to food all year long. As noted by the Hearth, Patio & Barbeque Association, for almost 30 years the barbecue industry has remained consistently strong showing that BBQ flavored cooking is here to stay and not wavering. No doubt a lot of this has to do with flavor and you don't always need a barbecue grill to achieve that delicious just cooked BBQ flavor.

This is where the Cuisinart multi-cooker comes into play. This kitchen cooker is the perfect slow cooker for so many reasons. The Brown/Sauté feature allows you to perform the tasks of Brown/Sauté right in the cooker itself immediately before slow cooking. No need for extra mess and fuss with the Cuisinart multi-cooker. Another feature that makes this cooker and all-around winner is the timer, which no doubt is the perfect feature for those days when you just need to throw it in, set and go. Added bonus is the “no need to ever worry about time you get home feature” because once the cooking cycle is done the Cuisinart multi-cooker immediately transitions into warm mode for that perfect meal every time.

As noted by Elite Daily, studies show that pallets preferring spicy are usually a determination of personality type. The spicier you like it the more adventurous and a newness junkie you are likely to be. A Paleo lifestyle may find many of you liking it hot in the spice department with the recent growth of the Paleo movement if these studies are true. The next recipe is dedicated to the spicy side of eating with a Paleo lens.

Now there are all types of spice and our own personal pallets ultimately define levels of hot. Culturally, heat provoking, spices are often found outside of traditional styles of American cuisine. When looking to incorporate spice into dishes inspiration can be found exploring many older cultures such as Indian, Spanish, Chinese and many others. By adding spice to BBQ flavor the pallet is offered a marriage of many influences producing an explosion of yum in your mouth.

What one can learn regarding spicy food is slow cooking seems to be a universal standard. The Cuisinart multi-cooker sets the perfect stage for all types of cooking, but especially cooking that requires a little palatable snap in each bite! An amazing feature about the multi-cooker relates to how the handles never get hot. No matter what phase of the cooking cycle you are in rest assured the handles remain room temperature. Not to mention how the individual timing and temperature controls allow you to regulate your dishes preparation at every turn. The Cuisinart multi-cooker allows you to be the cook every step of the way becoming the master of your creations with pride.

A gradual mild spicy dish offers an experience that almost every guest can appreciate. Rather than a meal that is hot from the 1st bite with consistency. A graduation of spice with a mild heat ceiling also allows for those with a stronger pallet tolerance to add additional spices using peppers, easy homemade Paleo condiments or store-bought natural sauces. Whatever your pallet for spice is this dish has you covered with cooking made fun and simple using the Cuisinart multi-cooker.

Paleo Perfect Jambalaya

They really know how to party in New Orleans with Mardi Gras being the grand pupa of them all. Music, food & parade are all apart of the tradition each deep rooted with cultural influences. If you ever had the pleasure of attending Mardi Gras you will undoubtedly learn that anybody can easily develop a strong love affair for all of the traditional dishes consumed during this weeklong celebration. One of the traditional dishes of New Orleans and Mardi Gras is Jambalaya.

In today’s lifestyle choices many are now migrating toward a Paleolithic way of life regarding food and below is a recipe that offers a Paleo perfect alternative to the traditional recipes for Jambalaya often found served in New Orleans & in most cookbooks.

This entire recipe is prepared using a slow cooker from Cuisinart. The Cuisinart Central Multi-cooker ‘s offers options to steam, slow cook and brown & sauté.

The Brown/Sauté option is the answer to anyone living a Paleo lifestyles wish list. Cuisinart obviously recognized the truth that food gains added flavor when seared before slow cooking. However, in our fast paced lifestyle many find themselves opting out of this tasty step with regularity. Having the ability to use one cooker for a completely delicious meal takes slow cooking to a new level and Cuisinart has done just that.

From the moment one opens the box the Cuisinart Central Multi-cooker impresses the chef in all of us. Most cookers are heavy and bulky yet the multi-cooker is light offering a slick design. The handles never head making the cooker easy to empty and clean. Setting & starting the multi-cooker offers little to no learning curve with the clear step-by-step instructions. Once desired temp is reached using the Brown/Sauté option you simply add your items to the cooker and start sautéing right in the slow cooker. Once done sautéing simply added all the remaining ingredients, gave them a mix through and set to slow cook to your desired temperature & get on with your day. It is that easy.

Living a Paleo lifestyle many use the slow cooker for at least 3 meals a week. This helps to manage the use of only clean foods in a fast paced world. The Cuisinart multi-cooker ups the game and adds a flavor the traditional cookers are unable to get give without the added step of searing in another pan prior to slow cooking. In addition once the Cuisinart Multi-cooker’s timer goes off the unit will automatically switch to warm making any dish easy to prepare in the morning to come home later with a healthy meal ready. This story goes beyond the meal and notes the Cuisinart multi-cooker is also super easy to clean with its non-stick surface! A definite must have for every kitchen!
