It’s a cold dark January and I am looking for some new slow cooker recipes that have been tried and tested. I’ve gotten most of my recipes from Pinterest so far… some have been great, others just ok.
No big dietary restrictions.. just nothing too cheesy.
This orange chicken recipe is probably our favorite so far (I’ve been using my slow cooker for the first time ever in the last couple months): http://www.grouprecipes.com/26013/easy-slow-cooker-orange-chicken.html
Tell me your favorites! 🙂

There’s a lot of good ones on SkinnyTaste! My FI and I love her beef barbacoa recipe and make it all the time. The chicken cacciatore one is awesome, too!

40 Clove Chicken.
Yes…with 40 cloves of garlic. But it’s amazing. And perfect for winter! When cooked that long, the garlic turns to a buttery consistency and it’s just heavenly. I serve it with baked crostini.

Pulled pork (also works with chicken breasts). Plop a 2-3 lb pork shoulder in your slow cooker, pour a can of root beer or dr pepper over it, let it go all day. Drain, reserving about 1/4c of the liquid, and shred. Add the liquid back, along with enough of your favorite barbecue sauce to get it to a consistency you like. Let it go another half hour or so, slap on a bun or add to nachos, and serve.

DH likes braciole in the crockpot.
I make it with lots of variations, but Giada’s below is a good classic recipe.
I simply brown the meat rolls, deglaze the pan and then add everything to the crockpot and turn it on. Browning it first does make it taste better (deeper flavor depth) but not necessary.

This turkey chili. omg. drool. Butttt we triple the amount of tomato paste (18oz). And then we make honey cornbeard to go with it, and a ton of sharp cheddar to mix in.

Chile Verde or MY version of Chile Colorado are mine and my husbands faves! Brown a Pork shoulder or tenderloin, put it in the crock pot, soften some onions and garlic in the same pan that you browned the pork in (with dripping still in pan), pour them in the crockpot, add salsa verde and voilà! For the Chile Colorado (once again it is my verison because I do not use the right sauce), same steps as for the Chile Verde but red enchilada sauce instead of salsa verde. So good! just enough liquid to cover half of the pork shoulder or tenderloin.
Have fun trying new recipes!!

I don’t know what it’s called..I found it on pintrest (I know…)
BUT I’ve made it several times. FI LOVES it. Really simple, and really good.
1 cup pinapple juice
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup light soy sauce
2 lbs chicken breast tenderloins
Cook on low 6-8 hrs
Probably not SUPER healthy, but really easy and really good. 🙂
