Ahh, the crockpot, the answer to my winter lethargy. After a long, cold day all I want to do is come home to a hearty meal that’s ready to serve. I know I’m not the only lazy chef out there who thinks her crockpot is more akin to a pot of gold this time of year. And to celebrate our favorite kitchen appliance, we rounded up the tastiest and lowest-maintenance slow-cooker recipes on Pinterest. Bon Appetit!
Cajun Pulled Pork
Pulled pork sandwiches are a perennial family favorite, and so much easier when you bring a slow-cooker into the equation. It’s may be winter right now, but this recipe is just as good now as at a summer cookout.
Finally, a quick and easy lasagna recipe! This crockpot recipe boasts tremendously reduced prep time, which, let’s face it, is one of the biggest reasons we all reach for our crocks anyway.
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Tailor made for cold January nights, this warm and spicy soup is perfect-o. Load it up with your favorite veggies and serve with tortillas (or tortilla chips) for a one-pot meal.
Braised Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes and Apples
It’s my strongly-held belief that pork chops were meant to be cooked in a crockpot. They’re also only meant to be served with tangy-sweet fruits, and this recipe is no exception.
Slow Cooker Beef Stew
Beef stew is classic crockpot fare, but what would a good slow-cooker recipe roundup be without it? I’m not sure what’s better, the way it tastes or the way it makes your home smell after it’s been simmering all day, mmm…
Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken
Chicken is never so melt-in-your-mouth good as when it’s cooked in a crockpot. Next time you want BBQ chicken, swap it for this teriyaki recipe — sweet and tangy, but just a little bit off the beaten path.
