This Autoimmune Paleo (all phase compliant) recipe was cooked in an hour in the pressure cooker. You can of course adapt it for the oven by cooking it covered for 3 hours as well. Bacon and cherry are wonderful together with a touch of lemon zest and thyme. Yum! —Autoimmune Paleo Lifestyle

If I don't have a pressure cooker or a dutch oven, will a big soup pot work?
