38 Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes

Easy Slow Cooker Recipes

If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon for slow cooker recipes yet then now is the time! Using your slow cooker is the easiest and best way to get juicy and tender meat and perfectly baked vegetables. It allows your food to soak in all of the flavors and they turn out so incredible. I love that I can put it in the slow cooker in the morning, leave it alone and come home to a meal that looks like I have been cooking all day! Plus, there are so many easy slow cooker recipes to choose from!

Using a slow cooker is not only convenient but it’s a great and easy way to try out new meats! Because they cook all day, they turn out so tender and juicy. So you don’t need to be a master chef to have your meats turn out perfect! I have rounded up 38 different slow cooker recipes that you can use for dinner. I’m sure that you will be able to find a few that you and your family love! Go ahead and try them and enjoy!  

Make it a Feast!

If you want to go the extra mile and add in a few side items to your slow cooker recipes, then I have some ideas for you! Here are a few things that you can make that will take this meal to the next level!

  • Make a salad: Sometimes, you just need a fresh salad to go with all of your meats and soups! This chicken salad or this Italian chopped salad will go with anything!
  • Add some bread: Go ahead and bake some bread ahead of time to dip in your gravy or soup! My favorites to use with slow cooker meals are these Lion House rolls or this delicious Crostini.
  • Finish it off with dessert: Slow cooker recipes are the best but if you really want to impress your family and friends then make a delicious dessert to eat after! Try out thes Apple Pie Cupcakes or this amazing Mississippi Mud Cake. They are both amazing!
