Notes

  • This recipe was inspired by (but a bit different from) one we found in Easy Low-Carb Slow Cooking.
  • We like using our non-stick multi-cookers to make for easy clean up. We've made this in our Gem Multi-Cooker and our Ninja Auto-iQ.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should¬†always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
