Back-to-school season means families need easy meals for busy schedules. Here is a list of ten slow cooker meals that includes steak, pork chops, meatballs, chicken, veggies and a trucker’s slow-cooker pot roast:
- Slow Cooker Vegetable Medley
- Slow Cooker Big Rig Pot Roast
- Ribeye Chili for Two
- Slow Cooker Beef Shank Steak Meal for Two
- Slow Cooker Pork Sirloin Chop Dinner for Two
The recipes above were made for one, two, or more and are kid-friendly.
Slow-cooker meals make things much easier for busy moms with hungry kids. No worries about being hangry. When your family is tired from working all day, kids are hyper, and it’s time for dinner, there’s no waiting.
I’m a grandma and love to cook for my little grandchildren. I’ve made some of these recipes for them. Others I’ve made at home for my husband who drives a big rig. And I can tell you for sure that the big rig pot roast tastes delicious.
I’ve ridden with my husband In the semi, and he’s cooked the pot roast meal for me. Delicious. He’s made numerous slow-cooker meals in the truck – much better than eating sandwiches and high-carb foods all the time.
During the summer, I prefer preparing meals in the slow cooker or pressure cooker. Oven-cooked meals make the kitchen way too hot.
Fall is coming soon, though, so start planning slow-cooker comfort food for cooler weather.
Like ribeye? Take just a minute to look at cooking a ribeye pressure-cooker meal. My hubby grills the best ribeye steaks. But occasionally, I cook them in the pressure cooker. And they turn out great.
Slow cooker and pressure cooker dinners are easy. Only difference? Slow, cooked-all-day meals. Fast, quick, easy meal. Both good. Both easy.
