I love this meal and I’m certain you’ll love it too! I came up with this as one of the meals we’d make at my “Keep It Paleo!” seminar. While we made it in a pot at the seminar, I’ve modified the recipe for slow cooker preparation.
If you want your friends to sing your praises, then I recommend making this for your Super Bowl Party. Gather the ingredients today and tomorrow, prep this out on Saturday and start it first thing Sunday morning. If you like to be ultra prepared, cook it on Saturday and reheat it on Sunday. I did this for all of the Culinary Ninjas in my cooking classes last week and they loved it. At least that’s what they told me…
“Keep It Paleo!” guys.
“It’s Not Gourmet, Bro!” – Pork Chile El Nopal
“Keep It Paleo!”
We start with 3 Pounds Pork Stew Meat, Shoulder or Butt, diced into 1” cubes (40oz) which then cooks down to 39oz.once cooked, 1.5oz equals 1 block, therefore we have 26 Protein blocks.
1 Jar Nopal Cactus (25oz) gives us 9g of carbohydrates therefore 1 carbohydrate block.
2/3 cup of raw onions equals 1 block, therefore 4 cups results in 6 carbohydrate blocks.
2 Cups of Bell peppers equal 1 block, therefore, since we have 4 cups, we total 2 Carbohydrate blocks from bell peppers
We use the measurement of 1 cup of Zucchini equals 1 block, so 4 cups will yield 4 blocks for us.
We are using 4 cups of tomatoes. 1 cup of cut fresh tomatoes equals one carbohydrate block, therefore we have 4 blocks from Tomatoes.
We equate the ground tomatoes more to tomato sauce. ½ cup of ground tomatoes equals 1 block, therefore 4 cups of ground tomatoes equals 8 blocks.
Using ½ Cup Garlic will add one block of carbohydrates to the meal.
Avocado. We will use this as our fats for the meal using the measurement of ½ tablespoon of avocado equals one block.
Overall we have a 26 block meal with our Proteins and our Carbohydrates. The fats we will add by adding avocado when we sit down and eat it based on how many blocks we are putting in our meal.
