time saving meals

Slow cooker meals are a great way to save time when you have a busy day. I think we can all agree they’ve saved us a few times when life got crazy.

What I love most about these meals is that they can be prepared in the morning, so when you’re ready to eat, your meal is ready too!

The following easy slow cooker recipes are “dump and go” meals with few ingredients or require very little prep time.

Whether you’re looking for an easy main course or soup, here’s a slow cooker recipe for you!

Crock Pot Cooking Tips

What You Need to Know About Crock Pot Cooking:

  • On my website, I use the Crock Pot and the Slow Cooker interchangeably. In either case, I’m referring to the classic crock pot, which has a ceramic pot that is heated on all sides.
  • The LOW setting usually takes twice as long to cook a dish as using the HIGH setting. Most dishes can be cooked for 6 to 8 hours, making them the perfect home dish after a long day at work.
  • With the exception of a few appetizers, most recipes are designed to be cooked in a 5-6 quart utensil. For proper cooking food should occupy at least ½ but no more than ¾ of the pot.
  • It’s easier to clean up with a crock liner.
  • Frozen raw meat is not recommended for use in crock pots. Be sure to put your meat in the fridge the night before so it’s ready to use.
  • Avoid removing the lid as a lot of heat will escape and you will need to add up to 20 minutes to get the pot back to the correct temperature.
  • Make sure you don’t completely forget to cook the food, as they may overcook in the pan.

browned beef

Many recipes call for browning the beef before adding it to the pan. I will always make sure to brown the ground beef for the best flavor and texture so that the grease can be removed. Other meats don’t have to be charred. It just depends on your preference.

I honestly find everything super easy to make with a crock pot. Still, I’ve broken down some of our favorite recipes into a few simpler categories:

  • Recipes with 8 ingredients or less
  • dump and go
  • Less than 10 minutes prep time
