Slow Cooker Recipes
For a dish that is truly “set it and forget it,” nothing beats a slow cooker, also known as a Crock-Pot. I love coming home to the aroma of a tasty home-cooked meal after being out all day. A slow cooker can definitely make eating healthier both easier and more enjoyable.
There are two different appliances that I use to make my slow cooker recipes. Each has advantages and disadvantages. The first appliance I use is a Crock-Pot SVC700-B, an oval slow cooker with a 7-quart capacity (affiliate link):
I love the generous capacity of this slow cooker; I can fit a large roast in there! Unfortunately, foods do not seem to heat very evenly in its oval shape. Having to stir the food every few hours to prevent sticking and burning can be inconvenient.
Luckily, I have another option if I know that I will be cooking a drier food that may burn. This includes steel-cut oats and other grain-heavy recipes.
The second appliance I use for slow cooking is my multipurpose cooker. It’s easy to forget that multipurpose cookers (AKA Instant Pots) are suitable for so much more than pressure cooking. I own a Crock-Pot express crock multi-cooker (affiliate link):
I love the versatility of this appliance! Also, it has a round bottom that does a great job of heating food evenly. The negatives are that it has a smaller capacity than my single-function slow cooker, and it is more expensive.
Whether you have experience with slow cooking or are a novice, I have many delicious slow cooker recipes for you. Get going with the most recent additions to this recipe category:
