Why Make Slow Cooker Meals

If you’re new to the slow cooker, here’s something you should know!

  • Easy. Crockpot recipes are usually very easy. Our Mississippi Pot Roast takes two minutes to prep. That’s it!
  • Easy Cleanup. Your evening routine just got easier with just ONE dish to clean. No messy pots and pans to worry about when you’re making our Slow Cooker Italian Beef (and others)!
  • Flavorful. Allowing the flavors to meld together for hours creates a truly delicious meal, like our pork ragu!

Tips and Tricks for Slow Cooking

  • Tools. First you’ll need to choose your favorite slow cooker. We love this one on Amazon. Affordable and has a locking lid which is great if you’re taking dinner on the run!
  • Slow Cooker Recipes with Chicken. We love putting chicken in our crockpot, but for best flavor, boneless chicken thighs have the juiciest flavor! You’ll agree after one bite of our chicken enchilada chili. Chicken on the bone works great too.
  • Ground Beef recipes. For most recipes, we brown our ground beef before adding to the slow cooker. But, for our taco meat, you’ll love that you can toss your raw meat in, let the flavors mingle while it cooks, and then mix it all up right before serving.
  • Dairy. We typically wait to stir in dairy right before serving. Whether it be heavy cream or greek yogurt to thicken up soups and sauces.

  1. Frequently I would not go through content on weblogs, having said that i want to express that that write-up incredibly urged my family to carry out and so! Ones way of writing continues to be amazed my family. Appreciate it, good report.

  2. Funny how recipes become “ethnic” if an ingredient is added…anything with pineapple becomes “Hawaiian”, anything with oregano becomes “Italian”, anything with taco seasoning becomes “Mexican”, anything with soy sauce becomes “Asian”, and anything slapped between two buns is American. LOL!
