25 Favorite Crock Pot Recipes



One of the most frequent questions I seem to get is about Crock Pot Recipes
Most folks just want some really good, tried and true recipes to make in their crock pots.
Now truthfully,  many recipes for the slow cooker (a.k.a. Crock Pot) aren't really the
 "Fix and Forget it" kind.  But making meals or desserts in your crock pot can give you time to do other things while your meal or dessert is cooking away. You don't have to stand over a hot stove and constantly babysit your food (but it will taste like you did!).
You can get your kitchen cleaned up, clothes washed, or like me, find reasons to avoid doing chores.  Like playing Battleship with my son or helping him with homework.  Or catching up on work, emails and social media, all while my crock pot is doing the work.  And, for some crock pot meals that involve slow cooking meat, you really can go to work for the day and come back to a yummy meal.  So, I thought today I would put together a whole list of tried and true slow cooker recipes for you.  These are my personal favorites and now they are all in one place so you can save this page to refer to later (I hope you will!).

Thanks so much for sharing these. I use my crock pot more and more. We are retired, but my daughter and her toddler live with us. It is perfect...we can eat when we are ready, then can eat when they get home and these ideas look perfect. I don't supposed the hot fudge cake is a perfect dinner entree every night, but perhaps once in a while.

I made the Slow Cooker cube Steak with Gravy for the second time today and it is absolutely delicious!! I have to admit that when I made it the first time I was afraid the gravy might be watery, but it came out nice and thick. I couldn't believe it. This has become a new family favorite now, especially on football Sundays. Thank you Brandie!!

i have a recipe that i adapted from mabel hoffman, who wrote the original crockery cookery book. it is called chinese style country ribs. depending on how hungry you are . i start out with 3-4 pounds of bone-in country ribs, because bone adds flavor. 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of either peach jam or plum jam, 2 tablespoons of catsup, one piece of a star anise ( and this really does make a difference) and a smashed clove of garlic. i also do 2-3 grinds with my pepper mill. mix all of the ingredients in the crock pot,( except the ribs) then just roll the ribs in the mixture. cook on low for 8-10 hours. these are a family favorite. i usually have to double or triple the recipe for any sitdown meal..i hope you enjoy this.
