Low Carb Crock Pot Turkey Breast #2 (simple 5 minute recipe)

The first time I made this I went to make my usual slow cooker turkey breast with lots of chopped veggies etc., but I found I didn’t have most of the ingredients I usually used.  Pretty much all I had was onion, beef stock and spices, so I just threw it in as is.

WOW – that made the most amazing moist and tasty turkey breast.  The combo of the beef stock and onion gave the turkey amazing flavor!  Now I use this recipe whenever I need to throw in a quick dinner.  It takes about 5 minutes to put together in the slow cooker.

I make this in my 7 quart slow cooker

Ingredients:
Approx. 5 1/2 lb bone in turkey breast
1 large onion sliced into thick slices
2 small cans of beef broth or one large 32 oz. carton of beef broth (I made my own beef broth using Better Than Bullion beef paste; I prefer that one).
Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, pepper and minced garlic (I used dried minced garlic)
Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
(1) Add the onion to the bottom of the slow cooker
(2) Rinse the turkey breast inside and out and place in a slow cooker on top of the onion.
(3) Add the Beef Broth
(4) Drizzle your turkey with olive oil
(4) Sprinkle the top of the turkey with rosemary, sage, thyme, thyme and plenty of minced garlic
(5) Cover and cook on high for 1 hour and then low for an additional 5 to 6 hours (depending on the size of the bird). For safety, the inside of the turkey breast should be 165 degrees or higher when done.
