Slow cooker recipes for fall
I have to admit, I’m obsessed with slow cooker recipes. There’s something irresistible about putting a bunch of ingredients into a countertop appliance and in 6-10 hours, dinner is ready! I love making slow cooker recipes for Sunday dinner as well as a meal solution for a busy weeknight.
Not all slow cooker recipes are alike, let’s face it, there are duds out there. Not all are guaranteed to turn out tasty, some turn out just plain bland. I love it when I discover or develop a new family favorite. I wanted to share with you some of my favorites and would love hear about yours!
My Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes
This Whole Chicken in a Slow Cooker recipe is roast chicken as easy as it gets. When I roast chicken or turkey, I always put a quartered lemon in the cavity, this ensures the meat stays moist and tender. After the chicken’s done in the slow cooker, put it under the broiler to crisp the chicken. With the leftover chicken, we make another favorite, chicken pot pie.
Beef pot roast is a longtime fall and winter favorite — comfort food at its best. I love this French Onion Pot Roast because it’s super simple using a condensed French onion soup. The veggies that cook with the roast make great side dishes along with mashed potatoes.
I have been obsessed with beef short ribs ever since I first had them at a restaurant. I have found making them in the slow cooker the perfect way to make them. This recipe for Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs is amazing. There is a bunch of prep before putting everything into the crock pot but it’s worth it and you’ll thank me when you make this dish.
Here are a couple slow cooker recipes that I’m dying to try:
I have been searching for a Beef Bourguignon recipe that doesn’t include bacon and I think this is the one! I love Aggie’s version because it looks super easy. There is a little bit of prep before everything goes into the slow cooker but it looks worth it!
