I've completely fallen in live with my slow cooker; I cook one large recipe on Sundays and have the leftovers for either lunch or dinner a few times over the week.

Currently doing chicken with potatoes, onions, carrots, green beans, and a mixture of Dijon mustard, honey, soy sauce, and Italian dressing for the sauce.

A few recipes I've recently done. The pork chili verde was the best I've ever had, hands down! I combined a few recipes to make kind of a pork green chili stew with potatoes.

https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/best-green-chile-stew-recipe/

I did it in the slow cooker though and used Herdez Salsa verde and Green chili enchilada sauce, plus a ton of roasted hatch green chilies diced up; I also sauted 1 onion, 1 tomato, and 1 green bell pepper and put it in the crockpot. I used a packet of fajita seasoning mix as well and didn't flour the cubed up pork when frying it, just fried it and stuck it in the crockpot and let it rip for about 6 hours. It was award winningly good.

The other great easy recipes I did recently in the slow cooker: balsamic chicken with brussel sprouts and taters.

I do pot roasts all the time as well when chuck roast is on sale, but everyone knows how to do those.

What are your favorite slow cooker recipes???

Sounds very good. Do you have the recipe for that one above?

Salsa chicken is great and easy in the cooker. You can even do pizza in there if you keep an eye on it!

I just kind of thought it up. I put hole peeled carrots in the bottom with sliced onion, layered sliced potatoes after that (seasoning each layer with salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder), and put chicken thighs on top. I also added a ton of sliced garlic and Italian seasoning blend to the sauce; I whisked together the mustard, honey, dressing, and soy sauce and poured it over top. About a cup of the Italian dressing, big squeeze of mustard, couple drips of soy, and a big squeeze of honey. I'll put the green beans in an hour before dinner.

Agree. It's great to get home from work and dinner is ready, and I don't have to whip anything up !!

Coincidentally, I have a "chili roast" in my crock pot right now, filling the house with a delightful aroma. I got the idea from another post on this forum a couple of months ago. It's basically my own chili recipe except the chuck roast goes in whole with the rest of the ingredients. After six hours I pull out the roast and shred it into varying sized chunks and return it to the pot for another two hours. It is exceptional! I have made many batched of chili in my life, but had never thought to use a slow cooker. I recommend it highly, not matter what chili recipe you like.

I uses a ton of recipes from Allrecipes.com for the Slow Cooker and our instant pot pressure cooker. Can't eat better with minimal effort than this.

I make overnight steel cut oats in mine ! Great for breakfast too! I use a liner when doing that, otherwise cleanup is rough.

Slow cookers work great for some things but it seems that many times they just turn food into mush with no texture. Everything put into the pot seems to taste the same. In my house any meat of value never touches a slow cooker

While a slow cooker is great for tough cuts of meat that respond well to braising (chuck roast, pork shoulder, rump roast, brisket, etc.) the higher value cuts don't need long cooking to develop deep flavor and tenderness.

If the contents turn to mush, either the heat was too high, it was in there too long, or both.

A slow cooker is best used as its name describes...

Pick up a frozen half turkey or turkey Brest depending on how big your crockpot is. Thaw it out place in crock add one packet of dry onion soup mix cover and cook on low for 6 hrs. (Add no water!) Comes out great turkey falls off the bone is tender use the broth on the bottom to put over the turkey.

The McCormic beef stroganoff mix the one you add the sour cream to is great. Follow the directions but I have found adding a cup of red wine improves the taste and makes the meat more tender.

Good stuff!

A little advice about making chili it always seems to taste better or does to me anyway when chili is cooked then cooled in the fridge for several days then re heated. So I have found when I make it in the crockpot I let it cool after cooking then place in fridge over night then I slowly reheat in crock. I then let cool again place in fridge again for several days this time then slowly heat and serve. Seems to improve the taste! .... Good eats!
