I love slow cooker meals. There’s something so comforting about setting it up and letting it run for however many hours while the smell fills your house (and I mean this in a good way).
While they’re generally not good when you want to make something you can eat right now, they’re usually really easy to prep. And you can let it cook while you’re at work, taking care of the kids, whatever.
For some reason, slow cooker meals tend to make for the best leftovers. And of course, good leftovers = not having to cook or worry about dinner the next day. Win win.
In the past when I’ve used my slow cooker (this is the one I have, but any will do) I’ve always seemed to focus on soups and chili.
But little did I know, there exists an entire world of slow cooker meals that range from BBQ ribs to pizza (yes, both of these are real and you will find them in this post). Things that I never thought you could make with a slow cooker.
So, I set out to find slow cooker recipes that go beyond the boring pot of chili – and don’t get me wrong, I love chili.
But these recipes will take your slow cooker to the next level.
Let’s check ’em out…
