Favorite Slow Cooker Meals

We are in the full swing of little league season and I have hired a servant to help me get through this busy spring; someone dedicated, reliable, and does not talk back. My Slow Cooker. For this last installment of “Car Picnics”- How To Eat On The Go: The UNBELIEVABLE, I wanted to share some of my most unbelievably delicious and successful crock pot meals. I have brought these meals over and over to potlucks, served them to company and used them for when I was pooped and needed a handy meal. A toss of a healthy salad, some cut up fresh fruit, dinner is ready. Print your copy now.

    The French Dip recipe is making my mouth water, and it’s barely 9:30 am!

    Thanks for these recipes! The one with pepperocinis reminds me of Portillos (a chain found in Chicago) spicy beef sandwiches. YUM!

    That’s so funny! I just posted a crock pot recipe today!

    By far my easiest go to meal in a crock pot is my beef stew.

    Take beef stew meat, cut into bite size pieces, dust meat with flour, saute in a pan to brown on all sides. Add that to the crock pot, add diced carrots, peeled and diced potatoes, diced onion, few cloves of garlic, diced, and add (3) 12 ounce cans of V-8 juice. I’ll add some salt and pepper and oregano, but that’s it. It is so easy and tastes so good!

    Thanks for sharing your recipes!

    That Hungarian Goulash sounds wonderful, as does the Chicken and dumplings. Will get out the slow cooker when we get back to NC!

    I was insanely jealous for a moment when I read you had hired a servant. Oh, wouldn’t that be so nice? Crock pots are a close second though.

    Yum. Thanks so much for sharing these! I’m definitely trying the goulash … naturally gluten free for me! 🙂 I’m in a crockpot frame of mind, too, as you know. LOL

    I go through crockpot phases where I use it everyday and then phases where it’s really not in the rotation. Right now we’re in “not in rotation” mode.
