I adore my slow cooker, in fact, it is cooking something right now. When I get done here, I will be enjoying a cornish game hen with lots of vegetables and probably a merlot. Dessert, too, as I deserve it. Probably strawberry shortcake since that is what is in season here now.
I usually use it at least 3x a week and sometimes 5. There are SO many things you can do with your crock pot, it’s amazing. We all know how tender and flaky any meat comes out. We also know how it brings out the vegetable flavors. Did you know that you can actually bake a cake in a slow cooker? Candy, too! Then there are also beverage, other desserts, bread, even jam and butter recipes you can make. You wouldn’t believe how delicious souffle’s are! Crock pots are truly versatile.
Some of my favorite recipes are Ribs, whether beef or pork, as they always come right off the bone. I also prefer cabbage in the slow cooker as there are so many tasty ways to do it from sauerkraut to stuffed. Brisket is also one of the mandatory meats I slow cook. MMM…Good. (getting hungry here).
It doesn’t matter if you’re eating breakfast, lunch or dinner…there is a slow cooker recipe out there that you will find delicious, nutritious, satisfying and always easy.
So are you using your slow cooker? Do you have questions about it? Maybe a favorite recipe you’d like to share? Here’s your chance to talk to me, I want to hear from YOU!
