Crock Pot Sausage, "Potatoes," and Beans (With Family Friendly and Low Carb Options!)
Serves: 14-16
Net Carbs: 25 grams
  • 4 lbs of turkey, skinless kielbasa sausage, cut into rounds
  • 4 lbs of potatoes, peeled and cubed approximately the same size as sausage rounds (or turnips or radishes or store bought, pre-cooked potatoes)
  • 2 lbs of frozen green beans
  • 1 or 2 large onions, cut into chunks (I like to stir fry them before adding them or soften them in a little broth in the micro.)
  • Pork/smokehouse/ham base (to make “broth”)
  • All Purpose Seasoning Mix or other seasoning combination
  1. Precook potatoes by steaming in micro or boiling on stove top. (I like to precook my potatoes if I am making a dish where the other ingredients are nearly cooked or fully cooked.)
  2. Mix all spices into 3 cups of hot water. Use the amount of base you like for your “broth.”
  3. Toss half of the meat and veggies into the crock pot and pour half of the liquid over.
  4. Toss second half of the meat and veggies into the crock pot and pour rest of liquid over.
  5. Cook–since mine needs to be done in three or four hours, I put it on high for an hour and low for two. You could put it on low for a long time. My crock pot has a WARM setting, so I move into that fairly quickly.
If you do not have the largest crock pot, cut this in half! It makes a full large crock!
