Paleo Recipe – Crock pot stuffed peppers

Check out this great recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple

If you don’t have a slow-cooker, the dish can be cooked in the oven, covered, for 1-2 hours.

  • 2 pounds ground pork (or a combination of pork and beef)
  • 4 large green peppers
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dry or fresh tarragon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cut the tops of the peppers and clean the seeds out.

Arrange peppers in the Crock-Pot standing up and make sure they fit securely.

Grate onion, carrots, garlic and cauliflower in the food processor. You can also just chop them into small pieces with a knife if you don’t have a food processor.

In a big bowl, combine ground pork, shredded vegetables, seasonings and tomato paste.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and arrange leftover meat between the peppers. Add half a cup of water, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

If you don’t have a slow-cooker, the dish can be cooked in the oven, covered, for 1-2 hours.

Today’s Workout:

Buy In – Rowing technique review – quick coach demo with key points (5mins).  Then dynamic warm-up:  3x (1 backwards run, 1 length high knees, 1 length bear crawl, 1 length butt kicks)

WOD – “Intermittent Rowtations”

In this team workout, one person is rowing for max metres while their team mates do a 500m run (1 lap of the block) in relay style.  At the beginning of the workout, one person will be on the rower, one person will be by the rower ready to start the run relay, and then the remaining team members will be stationed at specific intervals around the 500m block (ideally at each corner, coaches will decide based on how many team members there are).

When the workout starts, the rower starts rowing and the first runner takes off.  When the runner reaches the next team member, they tag off and the next team member runs, with the first runner remaining at the spot of the tag.  When the last runner reaches the gym, they trade off with the rower and the rower runs.

Scoring is total metres rowed and run by the team at the end of 20 minutes

Coaches – with teams of more than 6 individuals, have two people pair up on the runs.  When they get to the rower, one rows while the other does SDHP with a 35/45lb bar.
