Easy Slow Cooker Recipes

Over the last couple of years I’ve started really loving my slow-cooker and I’ve developed quite a few slow cooker recipes that are simply delicious and very very easy 

I just love that I can throw everything in, go out and 4-6 hours later come home to a satisfying and deliciously hot meal 

It’s really great for meal prepping and batch cooking too 

 

So why use a Slow Cooker (Crockpot)? 

So so many reasons, here’s just a few 

  • Low running cost / Energy Efficient 
  • Versatile
  • Prep ahead 
  • Convenient 
  • No oven on – no heating up the kitchen in hot weather 
  • You can leave them to do their thing and go do something nice 
  • Great for entertaining 
  • Easy preparation of family meals 

 

The Recipes 

So here are 6 off my fave Slow Cooker Meals  – I have lots more on my website and I have more in the development stage too 

And if you’re from the US, a Slow cooker is the same as a Crockpot!! 

 

1. Slow Cooker Turkey Mince  Chilli – yum!

This turkey mince chilli is totally delicious! It also happens to be super healthy and tasty. I have developed this one in the slow cooker and it’s perfect for those mid week meals.  It has all the traditional flavour and richness of a beef chilli recipe but it’s a refreshing lighter change – I love it 

  • Top with cheese, avocado, nachos etc to make a real night of  it!! (maybe serve with Margaritas 🙂 ) 

And it’s perfect for batch freezing

2. Slow Cooker Beef Curry – healthy

Here’s my delicious and easy Slow Cooker Beef Curry recipe, hurrah 🙂 

A delicious medium spiced beef curry, where the beef falls apart and the spices are perfectly blended.

The slow cooker does the work and you return home to a wonderful and luscious dinner  

Also perfect for Batch cooking and very easy to make 

Serve as a quick midweek supper or get carried away and make it part of an Indian feast at the weekend 

I love it with my  Onion Bhajis 🙂

3. Honey Garlic Chicken (slow cooker)

This slow cooker Honey Garlic Chicken is delicious. It’s easy and packed full of garlicky sweetness, there’s a lot of garlic :-). It’s the perfect midweek meal, or family dinner when you’re busy 

You simply pop it all in your slow-cooker (crockpot) switch it on – and off you go – I guess it’s what you call a dump recipe 

And 4-6 hours later – boom a delicious hot and healthy dinner is waiting

You can serve with rice and it’s also yum with salad in wraps

Sounds fancy pants doesn’t it? Well it’s really great, rich red wine gravy with falling apart tender beef that literally melts in the mouth. It’s stuffed with mushrooms, carrots and beautiful fresh herbs – YUM!! 

A real winter warmer!

Please trust me it tastes so delicious,  AND it’s super easy and once you’ve done the initial browning off  of the beef,  you simply chuck it in the slow cooker and go off any enjoy your day (or go to work – boooooo) – love that! 

You could serve on a Sunday too or if you’re cooking for friends and guests it’s perfect

6. Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala – easy

Oh My! I love Chicken Tikka Masala, it really is one of my faves. So I decided to try and make it a little healthier and use my slow cooker to make it an easy midweek meal.

To be perfectly honest it’s good enough for any meal occasion. So please try this Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala, I’m convinced you’ll love it 

My Slow Cooker version is a chuck it all in sort of vibe! Now we all love a dump recipe

It’s a delicious,  not too spicy, tomatoey, creamy curry! Tender pieces of chicken surrounded by a delicious sauce, it’s so good and it’s bursting with flavour.  Simply delicious and a guaranteed crowd pleaser
