40 Ultimate Slow Cooker Crock Pot Recipes

Ultimate Slow Cooker Crock Pot Recipes

If you are looking to slash your household budget this year, one of the best tips that I have is to cook your meals at home as much as possible. I know that this is something I struggle with, but when I stick with it, I see a nice reduction in our overall monthly spending.

One of my most beloved and well used tools in my kitchen is my 10+ years old Rival Crock Pot.  I have this White 5-Quart Round Smart-Pot Slow Cooker and while I have been tempted to upgrade to a fancier, stainless, oval Crock Pot I can’t seem to give up on my trusty old Crock Pot. I use it at least once a week – often more. I love being able to throw dinner in to the Crock Pot when I have time, so that I don’t have to rush to prepare dinner after my oldest gets home from school. Plus, some days we are out running around from activity to activity, and I’m not home to prepare a meal. I can’t tell you how many times we have avoided take out because I had something cooking away at home in the Crock Pot.

In an effort to switch up what we have been eating lately, I thought it would be fun to pull together a HUGE list of Ultimate Slow Cooker Recipes…for both my own use as well as yours! I hope that you find some new dinnertime inspiration in the list below.


Be sure to check out my article on Frugal Meal Planning if this is something that you need help with. I share my approach to meal planning and some tips and tricks to get you started. I’m also a HUGE fan of bulk cooking and freezer cooking, topics that I hope to share more with you in the upcoming year. And because eating out is a fact of life for many of us (and why not?), here I share 5 Tips on How to Find Restaurant Coupons.

Also be sure to check out my Food & Recipes Board on Pinterest, as well as my Frugal Stuff Board for more budget friendly inspiration.

Whatever you do don’t get a stainless crockpot brand crockpot. The newer models cook way to hot and fast and burn everything. I finally found a Hamilton beach model that doesn’t. As long as your old one works, consider yourself lucky!

Marie – it’s funny you mention that, my sister and law and I had this same discussion last week. She has a newer model (stainless) and told me the same thing. Yet another reason why I am going to stand by my old faithful until it dies! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment – hopefully this info will help others as well. :-)
