Our Best Slow-Cooker Recipes | Martha Stewart

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.
