Slow-Cooker Asian Barbecue Sausage Bites
A mix of Texas and Asia come together in this updated version of a favorite slow cooker appetizer. I created this recipe to be work with my Paleo pantry but have made notes in the ingredient list of comparable "standard" ingredients if you aren't Paleo/Primal.
  • 1-2 pounds Smoked Beef Sausage (regular or garlic works best -- nitrate/nitrate free if you can find it)
  • 11 ounce jar Apricot Preserves (I use an organic brand from HEB with minimal ingredients and sugars)
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Aminos (may substitute Soy Sauce or Tamari if preferred)
  • 2 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sambal Oleck
  1. Slice the Smoked Beef Sausage and toss it into a 3 quart slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour into the slow cooker and stir to coat the sausage.
  4. Cook on low 3-4 hours. Serve and enjoy!
