Pair that up with some natural ingredients and a gluten-free pasta and you’ve got a clean and complete detoxifying meal that’s not only deliciously satisfying but also nutritious.

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 pieces garlic cloves smashed slightly
  • 1 1/2 pounds lamb steak cut against the grain into 8 pieces
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups fresh tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 cup homemade, unsalted bone broth
  • 1 piece carrot chopped
  • 2 pieces bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 16 ounces gluten-free pappardelle pasta
  • Parsley for garnish as needed


  • In a small skillet set over medium-high heat, sauté garlic in EVOO for about 2 minutes or until fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer to a bowl and keep aside.
  • Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Using the same skillet, sear for 2 minutes per side. Then, transfer to a 6-quart slow cooker. Don’t forget to add in the fond (the bits and drippings that get stuck at the bottom of the pan) as this is one secret to a flavorful dish!
  • Pour in the tomatoes and broth. Add in the sautéed garlic followed by carrots, bay leaves, and thyme.
  • Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 8 to 10 hours. Discard the herbs after.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain, return to the pot and add the sauce from the slow cooker. Crank up the heat and cook, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute or until well-combined.
  • Divide among 8 serving bowls or containers (for later use) and top each with freshly chopped parsley. Serve hot and enjoy!


  • Discarding the herbs, especially bay leaves, is an important step. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a pungent and bitter meal. Not to mention that its sharp edges can also cut the mouth, cause choking, or even wound your digestive tract.
  • You may put bay leaves and thyme on a sachet d’épices sack so it’s easier to remove once the meat is cooked. You can also use a cheesecloth tied with twine or a loose-leaf tea bag.
  • For a high-fiber option, feel free to substitute pappardelle pasta with an equal amount of quinoa.
