Who knew that such a delicious meal could be made with just 5 simple ingredients and 3 hours of hands-off cooking time? Well, this girl! As we’re getting closer to Summer here in Texas, I’m starting to already use my stove and oven less and less. It’s freaking HOT here already, y’all! Any excuse that I can find to use my crock pot or pressure cooker, is a good one.
This Slow Cooker Sausage & Peppers dish is a life saver. A meal for those busy weekdays or lazy weekends. And it’s so simple that there is absolutely no fuss or muss in the kitchen. Sausage, peppers, onions, broth and some hot sauce. That’s all you need for this low-carb, paleo, keto-friendly one pot wonder meal!
You can really use any sort of smoked sausage here that you like. I went with a roasted garlic smoked sausage, but to each their own. I also used an assortment of different colors of bell peppers, but again, if you’ve got a favorite, feel free to use that color!
All together, this was a very filly and satisfying dinner that I didn’t have to think too much on. It’s pretty fool-proof and worry-free.
I served my sausage and peppers over a rice and quinoa mix with some of the broth ladled over the top and just a dab of a whole grain mustard for a complete meal. Though this would also be good piled in on a bun to be more ‘hotdog’ or ‘sandwich’ style.
