With these easy slow cooker recipes you don’t have to be a professional home cook to make your family think you are. 😉

We’re all busy right??!!

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. If you just want to serve a few appetizers you should get this one that sit side by side one another.
  3. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉


From soups, to desserts, to main dishes, I am constantly creating new Crockpot dinner ideas that all of us will enjoy.

If you’re looking for really cheap crockpot meals we have a bunch! Crockpot recipes using hamburger tend to be a bit less expensive. To really cut down on costs choose a meat with a bit higher fat content, that will drive the price down.

Since you’ll have to precook your ground beef anyway you can drain the fat so it won’t matter anyway. If you want it lower in fat put it into a strainer and spray hot water on your meat to rinse more fat off it it too.

Then if you want a good ol’ fashioned meal you should try our slow cooker cube steak.

The question when you add meat is, can you put raw meat in a slow cooker?

I do not do this with hamburger, but beef and chicken I do. In general it isn’t a hard no no. You can cook raw meat in the slow cooker by putting in your meat with the liquid your recipe calls for, and set to high or low. Generally people start at high and after a few hours turn it down.

In 6-8 hours most meats will be cooked through and safe to eat. As always use a thermometer to ensure it’s the right temp for safety reasons.
