My Best Crockpot Recipes

Sunday, October 13, 2019
Here is a great roundup of slow cooker/crockpot recipes and anything from meats to desserts.


I love making slow cooker recipes, they are so easy for a busy lifestyle.


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!


This roundup is all our personal favorites.


One-pot throw it together, set it and forget meals are always a big hit here, and for me working all crazy hours, I lost track of time.


Don't worry anymore about dinner, we got you covered here and every one of these is fantastic!


Scroll through and click the names of each recipe to send you to printable copies of each one.


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


Even going to old-fashioned diners can't come close to the flavorful meats in these slow cooker meals, you're family will be loving the meals and thinking you cooked over a hot stove all day!


Enjoy the gallery and let me know which one you like the best!

Slow Cooker Recipe Tips



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


The slow cooker became the 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 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 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 about slow cookers,  I love making too much food!


I usually make a full pot of chili, meats, and stews, and have lots of leftovers, but guess 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 than 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 go 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
