One of the reasons why slow cookers work so well as a means of preparing Paleo meals is because nothing else handles meat in such an effective way while also simulating the way our ancestors cooked meat, of course accounting for modern safety and convenience as well. Slow cookers are known for cooking meat like beef and chicken in such a way that even the gristliest cuts of meat come out tender and moist by the time the slow cooker has done its job. It also keeps all the flavor in the meat in such a way that it remains savory and delicious even after cooking all day. Slow cookers also lend themselves to the Paleo mindset quite well in that they are closer to Paleolithic era cooking than an oven or stovetop. Think of it this way: most food that was cooked in ancient times wouldn’t be able to reach the densely high temperatures that we use in our normal kitchen cooking without stoking the fire so high that it would be impractical, not to mention how dangerous it would be. The slow cooker recreates that simplicity of cooking the hunted food slowly until it is thoroughly prepared and tender.
Slow cooker recipes also provide a very interesting opportunity. Many people have a difficult time imagining what it must be like to abide by a strict Paleo diet. They imagine strange looking meals with leaves and strange plants and raw meat or whatever other crazy things people imagine when you talk about eating like a caveman. Instead, you can use the Every Day Paleo Slow Cooker Recipes cookbook to find some great recipes that can really expand your mind over what Paleo can really be.
