Easy Slow Cooker Meals
Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna
Chickpea Stew Over Couscous
Indian-Spiced Yellow Split Pea Soup
Turkey and Curried Vegetables
Curry powder adds some mild heat to winter veggies and tender turkey breast.
Chicken Stew with Potato Dumplings
Pick up fully cooked gnocchi to use as no-prep dumplings.
Spiced Shredded Beef Brisket
Spiced brisket is also delicious wrapped in flour tortillas for a no-cook taco night.
Sausage and Potatoes
Hot or sweet Italian sausage adds a lot of flavor to this hearty dish.
Asian Beef Stew
Garnish this Asian-style stew with thin strips of crisp scallions for added zing.
Pork Roast with Peach Sauce
Pumpkin pie spice is the secret ingredient in our warm, fruity sauce.
Classic Pot Roast
Opt for a cheaper cut of meat; the long simmer tenderizes it perfectly.
Spicy Turkey Lasagna
Turkey reduces the calorie count in this comfort-food classic -- leave room for seconds.
Mexican Pulled Pork Tacos
By the time this south-of-the-border treat is done cooking, the pork roast almost falls apart by itself.
Instant rice makes this even easier to prepare -- just add it in for the last 10 minutes.
