My Best Crockpot Recipes

Monday, November 3, 2014

Here is a great roundup of slow cooker recipes. I love making slow cooker recipes. It frees up so much time for me to do other things while I work or have company coming over.

Standing over a hot stove in the summer is not an option in Florida and I use my slow cooker often! These are our favorites.

Whether you need a great dessert or one pot meal, you will find it in this delicious recipe roundup.

I am so spoiled now that meat never taste as good or gets as tender no matter how else I cook it, I look forward to a fork tender slow cooked meal.

Slow Cooker Recipe Tips



Through the years, I have used a slow cooker often working long hours in retail.


The slow cooker became a best tool in my kitchen.


One of the things I learned along the way is that chicken and most meats require less liquids along with chili, as they secrete juices on their own.


If you add too much you will end up in a large pool of juices and stews and sauces will always be watery.


Should you experience that, you can always add a sifted flour and water or cornstarch to thicken that stew or sauce your making.


Also another best practice is to brown the chicken and meats first, they look and taste much better with a browned coating on each side.

More Tips!


Always preheat the slow cooker before adding your meats.


Gingersnap cookies are a great thickener to meats and stews, gingersnaps flavor the sauce and give the pan juices this amazing texture.


Only use a good grade wine that you would drink.


I prefer plum tomatoes drained over crushed, squeezed out, the pulp makes awesome stews.


Any meat dish like chili or a brisket with all that sinewy tissue will be even better the day after you've made it.

Made too Much?



The last tip I have for you that I love is,  I love making too much food!


I usually make a full pot of chili, meats and stews, and have lots of leftovers, but gues what?


They all freeze well, just freeze your leftovers for another meal.


Remember using your crockpot for all of these meals we tend to make much more that we can eat.


Don't leave it in the refrigerator for days, freeze your slow cooked meals for later, they are great leftovers to repurpose for another meal.


You can make covered sandwiches with leftover roasts, nachos and burritos with leftover chili and the list goes on and on getting creative.

  2. I didn't realize that Italian recipe's called for a crock pot as often as they do. I love using the crock pot for everything. This could be from myself being Italian. That's about as close as I get to cooking good Italian food though. http://italissima.com
