5 Slow Cooker Recipes for Busy Days

Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup (click for link to recipe)

I love soup for dinner. A warm loaf of crusty bread for dipping and a side salad can make a delicious simple meal. The flavors of this soup are amazing! The warm soup and bread are perfect on a fall night!

Slow Cooker Bolognese (click for link to recipe)

Prep this meal by cutting the vegetables the night or a day or two before to make this meal super simple. Letting the flavors meld all day in the slow cooker bring out a rich creamy flavor to the sauce.

Slow Cooker Sauerbraten with Ginger Snap Gravy (click for link to recipe)

This is one of our family’s favorite meals. The gingersnap gravy with a hit of vinegar adds a ton of flavor to this dish. The smell alone brings my entire family to the table when we call time for dinner.

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef (click for link to recipe)

You can use cheaper cuts of beef for this meal as the slow cooker tenderizes the meat perfectly. There is tons of great tasting sauce. Add some rice and a green vegetable and you have a deliciously simple meal.

Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana (click for link to recipe)

I love all kinds of soup but some in my family prefer soup you can chew. Meaning big chunks of meat, potatoes, and veggies make them feel like they are having a real meal instead of soup. As always a warm crusty loaf of bread and a side salad make this one simply delicious dinner!

What is your go to meal on a busy night?

  1. Someone gave me some cabbage. To protect it from spoiling, did the Crock-Pot with olive oil. Forgot to use salt. Next serving have garlic and sea salt. I made enough for at least 3. .have some broasted chicken and grape tomatoes.
