This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here


    1. That should work, but you might experiment with the water, I’m not sure it’s as necessary if you’re using chicken (depends on what cut of chicken as well).

  1. Are all the recipes that you have post for 2 servings? Sometimes you mention the numbers of servings and sometimes not so I am not sure what to assume. I am new to Paleo and I am still not sure of serving sizes. Thanks!

  2. Can you put the lamb in the crockpot instead of cooking on the stove? I have two small children and it’s nice to be able to come home and have dinner ready instead spending at least an hour getting it ready. Also, is it possible to post other Paleo crockpot recipes? Thanks!

    1. – I’m sure this recipe would be great in the crock pot. You may want to be careful of overcooking the peppers, though. Maybe put them in for just a couple hours unless you don’t mind them being soft. Also, you can search the site using the search box for the term “crock pot” and you’ll find several other recipes.

  3. @ Neely – Thank you! The lamb turned out great in the crock pot. I added the peppers when it had about 30 minutes left and it worked out great!

    I’m new to the site, but so far really liking everything that I’m reading about the plan and the recipes. I just have to keep my husband convinced that it’s the right healthy lifestyle for us. He really really loves bread. Hopefully he can stick with it for at least a month to see some noticeable changes. Thanks again!

  4. My husband and I have only eaten lamb once and were not a fan but we decided to give this a try. This recipe was delicious and I will definitely experiment with lamb in the future!

  5. Hi Neely, has there been any thought to adding crockpot alterations to most recipes? Would be very helpful for those of us who don’t have an hour to cook dinner during the week?

    1. rojo@rogers – No, we hadn’t thought of that, but it’s a great idea. I think in general, if you put delicious ingredients in a crockpot and leave them there to simmer all day while you’re at work, most dishes will turn out great. One thing to watch out for is coconut milk, though. It’ll curdle if left in the crockpot too long. Thanks for the suggestion – I’ll run it past the team :)

  6. Is there a way you could allow users to upload a picture of the recipe they cooked to the recipe they followed? I think everyone likes to see a picture of what they are about to cook, and they also like to show off the recipe they made!

    1. LianneJ – I’m really sorry, but at this time it’s not possible to do that. But we always take photos in emails ( and we may use them if they’re beautiful and enticing!

  7. That was surprisingly tasty and non-lamby (not a great fan of lamb as it is so fatty tasting)….good old garlic…

    Instead of putting it with spinach salad, I sautéed the spinach leaves in coconut oil and granulated garlic to bed the lamb on. Delicious!

  8. new member here………..anyone that help me to be efficient with navigating the website, customizing menus, shopping lists , so far, I’ve decided to try one day at a time, seems little less complicated

    1. It’s essentially 1 pepper per person (4 servings). Ideally vegetables outnumber the proteins for most meals, so this is a good example of that!
