Looking for a handful of fabulous slow cooker recipes? You’ve found them! I love scouring the web for new recipes I can make in my slow cooker.
Cooking meals in a slow cooker is a quick and convenient way to have supper ready when you are. It’s a frugal way to save money on meals for the family, too.
Though many people use the names slow cooker and crock pot to mean the same thing, they are not the same thing, as Crock Pot would surely tell you! Crock Pot is a brand, and quite a good one.
In fact, I think I’ve always had a Crock Pot, though I’ve had a few different styles. They keep getting better and better, and the one I have now has a locking lid for travel, which I love.
Though I can’t imagine the Crock Pot being called the Naxon Beanery, that was actually the first patented name of the Crock Pot back in 1940. Naxon sold his design to Rival who renamed the device the Crock Pot. Wouldn’t you love to know how much he got for his design?
Naxon said his design was inspired by his mother telling him about a dish that cooked all day in a heated oven on the Sabbath, a day of no work. The dish cooked overnight with the oven off, but the heat from when it was on was enough to cook the dish over time.
Many use the same principle now for slow cooking. While we’re at work or running kids around, dinner is slowly and safely being prepared. I’m so grateful for my slow cooker!
In addition, cheaper cuts of meat can be slow cooked for several hours and be so tender it will fall apart. We love fajitas and stews, and cooking meats this way is perfect for both, especially when you’re entertaining a crowd.
Cooking with a slow cooker is also convenient for school nights or even during game day. All you need to do is add all of your meal ingredients into the slow cooker and set it for the amount of time required to cook the meal.
