I am a huge fan of my slow cooker, especially at this time of the year. It makes life a little easier when it comes to dinner times and it can create some amazing meals.
Lot’s of people assume that slow cookers are just for stews and casseroles however there is a whole range of recipes you can do in there, including curries and even puddings!
Here are 10 of the best recipes to try in your slow cooker:
Pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce – This is one of my most popular recipes on the blog and one we always go back to for an easy dinner. The longest thing to do is prepare the pork for the slow cooker, after that it is just a case for you to let it cook whilst you get on with your day.
Five Bean Slow Cooker Chilli– I’m a huge fan of chilli and this recipe looks delicious! I am always packing out my chilli con Carne with beans and vegetable so this is a great recipe that the whole family will love.
Barbeque Chicken – This recipe from Just Average Jen is one that I am going to try out as it has all my favourite ingredients in. Also for me, anything I can dump it all in first thing and dinner is ready in the evening is always a winner for me.
Whole chicken in the slow cooker – If you want to make your life a little easier at the weekend when you are doing the roast, or maybe even midweek if you fancy it, this is the recipe for you. It is so easy to cook your whole chicken in the slow cooker, plus the meat just falls off the bone which makes it easy to ensure you have it all ready for leftovers the next day.
Slow Cooker Fudge – It doesn’t have to just be savoury recipes in the slow cooker, as this fudge recipe proves. It sounds delicious and I bet it tastes just as nice too.
Slow Cooker Fruity Beef Casserole I am always on the lookout for more great recipes that include beef as it is one of the best meats to cook in the slow cooker in my opinion. If it is cooked properly it simply falls apart. This recipe looks delicious and another one I can’t wait to try.
Slimming World Pulled Pork recipe – I shared our pulled pork recipe earlier as it is a popular post for us, however, if you are looking for a Slimming World friendly version, why not head over to Boo Roo and Tigger Too and try out their recipe.
Slow Cooker/Crockpot Mars Bar Chocolate Fudge This is another fudge recipe containing one of my favourite chocolate bars, Mars Bar! It is underrated chocolate in my opinion and adding it to fudge is a perfect match!
Simple slow cooker bolognese – Bolognese, it is a firm family favourite in many households. So why not cook it in the slow cooker and save yourself a little bit of time and effort. This recipe from Fiona is a great one to save you some time and feed your family a yummy meal with little effort.
Slow cooker beef keema curry – I am a huge fan of curries and keema curry was one we discovered a few years back, it is delicious. This recipe from Katy makes it even easier to enjoy your favourite meals with little stress.
