Here are five of our favourite affordable, hassle-free slow cooker meals that feed many mouths and are bound to warm your soul and fill your tummy. It’s how culinary style eats mixed with comfort food is done right!
BBQ Pulled Pork
A slow cooker classic and a dinnertime favourite in our household. This recipe is best made with the recommended homemade BBQ sauce, but your favourite grocery store brand will also due if time is an issue. Add some slaw and make into a sandwich or a trick we love is to fill a taco shell with the same ingredients to switch it up the second night.
Throw in your meat, homemade sauce, and any vegetables you fancy and let it sit for 6 hours. Serve with fresh lime to bring out the flavours and rice or quinoa for some healthy and filling carbs.
Slow Cooker Chilli
Nothing says fall like warm steamy chilli! Add all the ingredients to the pot and let it simmer for 6 hours. This recipe yields over 6 servings so you can pack it up and reheat it again later in the week without it losing its punch. Quick, easy, and delicious!
Short Ribs + Garden Vegetables
Caramelized onions, crisp garden veggies, and juicy rib meat infused with fresh spices that simply falls off the bone. That is the definition of delicious!
