Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are something you may not think of as being a slow cooker low- carb friendly lunch. With just a few tweaks, you can make this a great lunch to make for the home or on the go for the office as well. Ideally you will want to use Portobello mushrooms for this or larger caps. The filling should be made of cheese, ground pork, ground beef, and seasonings.

Mix your filling and place in the caps. Place the caps in the slow cooker and cook for 2 hours on high or 4 hours on low. They can be placed into a lunch carrier or be eaten on the spot with some pasta sauce to complete the dish.

Pasta-Free Spaghetti and Meatballs

You may be wondering what pasta-free spaghetti is. It is easy. All you need is either a vegetable spiralizer or some spaghetti squash. If you use the spiralizer, use a vegetable like zucchini. You can even use the zucchini along with the spaghetti squash to make the noodles. The spaghetti squash can be roasted alongside the meatballs in the slow cooker.

Just place a piece of rolled tinfoil in between to keep them separate. The meatballs can be whatever meat you like, just make sure you are not using breadcrumbs as the binder. Use egg and some cheese instead. Cook the squash and the meatballs on low for 4 to 6 hours. Take out the squash and use a fork to pull out the meat of the squash. It will make the noodles. Then just dress the noodles with pasta sauce and the meatballs.

I made this Spaghetti And Meatballs using the Cosori 6.5 Quart Slow Cooker. This was my first time cooking pasta in a slow cooker. I really thought that the Spaghetti came out really good for such an easy Recipe. This Spaghetti and Meatball Recipe is perfect for someone on a budget, or is pressed for time. This Spaghetti was a little more starchy than a traditional Spaghetti Recipe, but not overly starchy.

Pulled Pork Banh Mi

Pulled pork is incredibly easy to do in the slow cooker and it can be easy to assemble as a lunch. Just place several pieces of boneless pork chops or a half pork loin in the slow cooker with a little water for 6 hours on high or 4 hours on low.

Cook until tender, but thoroughly cooked throughout. Use two forks to shred the pork. Toss in a low-carb sauce like a low-carb oriental sauce and add some shredded cabbage and other shredded vegetables. Place the mixture into a purple cabbage leaf cup or “bun” for a finished meal.

Slow Cooker Pork Banh Mi Sliders – The classic Vietnamese sandwich gets a deep boost of flavor here, with slowly braised pork belly in a lovely caramel sauce.

You start by making a simple caramel (sugar and water, cooked until golden brown and syrupy). Then, separately, you melt shallots and garlic, add cubed pork belly and cook until lightly seared. Add Asian fish sauce for umami richness and seasoning, then the caramel.

Once braised, these rich, tender cubes of pork are the heart of these crunchy, slightly spicy, and baguette-crispy little sandwiches.
