  1. 1. Prepare the garlic-herb butter by combining all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the garlic, herbs, and salt are evenly distributed throughout the softened butter.
  2. 2. Transfer the butter mixture to the center of a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log. Wrap tightly and place inside the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to become firm.

  4. 4. Add filets to hot skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they become golden brown. Reduce heat to medium and carefully flip each fillet. Top each filet with an equal amount of herb butter and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes. While cooking, spoon the herb butter back over the filets as it melts.
  5. 5. Remove from heat and transfer fillets to individual serving plates. Drizzle with melted herb butter and garnish with some fresh chopped parsley, if desired.

Low Carb Slow Cooker Meals That Are Easy to Make

 

With Fall upon us, what better time than now to start thinking about easier, dump meals that save time and money, not to mention low carb. Mornings have us in the whirlwind of getting the family ready while after work we are tired from the long day, possibly with activities. This leaves us with little time and often opting for unhealthy fast foods.  Instead, go for low carb slow cooker meals for your family to enjoy. What’s easier than slow cooker dump meals?

I’ve got you covered with these low carb slow cooker meals that can be made in any type of slow cooker or crock pot. These are so simple, with easy to follow steps and just a few simple ingredients.

 

 

Helpful Tools

Here are some of my favorite tools for cooking in the slow cooker and packaging for the freezer:

All of these are low carb slow cooker meals, keeping you on plan but are appealing to the whole family. Many are also excellent freezer meals too!

Quick to Slow Cook

So, get ready and grab your slow cooker/crock pot and let’s get cooking!

 

 

Slow Cooker Spicy Swiss Steak – from Low Carb-ology

“I like using a slow cooker in the summer as well as the winter. This easy, slow cooker swiss steak recipe is not only very low carb — it’s just right any time of the year. I like to serve it with a salad but if you feel the need for traditional mash then mash up some cauliflower with lots of butter and a little cheddar cheese.  This would also be great with the faux mac and cheese recipe.

 

Always season your meat generously before you put it in to cook. One of the biggest mistakes people make is the lack of seasoning on their food. It doesn’t have to be all salt — lemon zest, pepper, paprika and other herbs and spices work in tandem with a little salt to bring flavor to a higher level.

 

One way I stay on track is to make a huge amount of something like this swiss steak and then freeze it in single serving packages. That way I have a low carb meal that is ready whenever I need it. Think of it as being your own personal chef!”

Greek

Slow Cooker Greek Chicken – from Chef in Training

“I was really in the mood for some Greek cuisine last week and decided to change up they way I cooked my chicken. The end result was tender, easily shreddible, favorable chicken breasts with Greek flair. I actually made it two nights in a row I loved it so much! The first night we ate it as is with feta sprinkled on top. The feta softened up over the warm chicken and was rich in flavor. We served it with a side of Greek Salad and sliced Pita bread. The second night we made it for Greek Gyros and they tasted fabulous!”

 

Butter/Garlic/Cheese

Slow Cooker Garlic Butter Chicken with Cheese Cream Sauce – from Our Small Hours

“Cream Cheese Sauce.

Oh my.  Where do I even begin?  I guess I should tell you first about the tender, moist chicken.  But, you just have to know about the tangy cream cheese sauce.  The garlic butter component is pretty important, too.

 

I guess the best thing about this dish is that it’s as simple to make as it is tasty.  It’s perfectly comforting after a busy day and even better as a leftover lunch the next day.  (Even if you eat it sitting at your desk.  Promise!)

 

Oh, and it’s keto-friendly!”

Low Carb & Keto Butter Chicken from Gnom Gnom

“This keto butter chicken is ridiculously tastyaromatic, and a breeze to whip up! Plus, it just so happens to be a naturally low carb dish (and we’ve since added a dairy free and paleo option too!). 

 

Butter chicken might just be the most famous curry export from India, wow-ing palates wherever it goes. Plus, it also happens to be incredibly easy to get just right. 

 

And while there are a myriad of versions out there, it’s in essence a yogurt-with-spices-and-lime marinated chicken, cooked up in a mildly-spiced and incredible curry sauce. And for a paleo version, coconut yogurt and cream work wonderful with the flavors!

 

Said curry sauce is also a breeze to make. Think sautéed onions cooked up with the incredibly aromatic ginger, garam masala, cumin, turmeric and just a hint of cinnamon. All naturally keto ingredients, whoop whoop!”

 

Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken from Bakers Royale

 “I’m bringing America’s Test Kitchen’s slow cooker recipe for Caribbean jerk chicken. This is definitely the simpler way to make this dish since you can trade in hours of marinating and grilling time for the simple slow cooking method of dumping it all in a pot and letting the chicken cook in the spice marinade, then give it a quick charring and crisping in the broiler and — done!”

 

 

Low Carb Stuffed Peppers

Low-Carb Sausage-Stuffed Peppers from Paleo Pot

“Sausage and peppers and always been one of my favorite Italian comfort foods, and also rather easy to make. I had been pondering writing some new stuffed pepper recipes due t0 their easy and decided to spin the common recipe to merge my love for two different recipes. This is another one that is an easy way to feed the whole family with 10 minutes of prep time, or simply get 3 or 4 meals cooked ahead of time for yourself.”

Recipe Notes

Crispy Seasoned Kale Chips

If you’re looking for a healthy and satisfying alternative to fried potato chips, you are in the right place. These crispy kale chips are super easy to make, but there are a couple things to keep in mind before you begin:

The first consideration is finding the right combination of oven temperature and cooking time. These chips will burn very quickly, so keep a close eye on them, especially the first time you make them. Here, a 325-degree oven and 6-7 minutes were all that was needed to yield crispy chips that weren’t soggy or overly bitter and brown. However, you’ll want to test this closely in your own oven to find the right balance.

Next, the kale needs to be completely dry before popping it in the oven. Moisture left on the leaves can create steam, which leads to soggy chips. Also, don’t overdo it on the olive oil. Add a small amount and massage it in until each leaf is very lightly coated. If more oil is needed, add it in very small increments until each leaf is coated.

Finally, feel free to experiment with any combination of seasonings you desire. Basic sea salt is perfect on its own, but in this case, the addition of smoked paprika, garlic powder, and ground cumin adds a little more depth to the flavor.

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.
  2. 2. Wash kale leaves and dry completely before adding to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss to combine while rubbing each leaf with your fingers to make sure it is evenly coated in oil.
  3. 3. Sprinkle smoked paprika, garlic powder, and cumin on top of kale and season with sea salt, to taste. Toss until evenly combined.
  4. 4. Arrange seasoned kale leaves on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, being careful to not overcrowd them. Work in batches, if necessary.
  5. 5. Place baking sheet in pre-heated oven and bake for 5-6 minutes before rotating the pan. Bake for another 1-2 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove chips from oven when they are still mostly green, with only a tiny bit of brown developing.
  6. 6. Let chips sit for 2-3 minutes to crisp up a bit more before serving. Enjoy!
