Slow cookers are great for preparing warm and cozy comfort food, but we love them year-round. From helping to break down and tenderize tough cuts of meat, such as flank steak and chuck, to letting home cooks get a head start on dinner prep, slow-cookers truly work wonders. Prep a recipe, like Garlic Chicken with Barley pictured here, in the morning before you get your day started and it will be cooked through and delicious by dinnertime.
One of the most popular slow-cooker recipes is pulled pork. We have a recipe for Easy Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork that is delicious as a sandwich or served on its own. Another classic? Classic Pot Roast for the Slow Cooker—it’s a fabulous recipe for a special Sunday night dinner. The carrots and potatoes cook with the beef roast so everything absorbs the savory, rich flavors of garlic, tomato paste, red wine, chicken stock, and Worcestershire sauce.
Hosting a party? One of our favorite party starters is this Slow-Cooker Queso recipe. It’s made with two varieties of cheese, cornstarch, evaporated milk, and diced tomatoes with chiles. The slow cooker keeps the queso warm and creamy and prevents it from breaking, so you get a luscious cheese pull every time you dip.
We even have a few sweet slow-cooker recipes. First, start your morning with Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Buns; the pot not only thoroughly cooks the dough but keeps it super moist, too. Plus, each bun has that irresistible pull as you tear them apart. Or try fudgy and rich Slow-Cooker Triple Chocolate Brownies, which cook on low for about four hours.
Our slow-cooker recipes are flavorful, fabulous, and completely foolproof.
