Best Slow Cooker Recipes
We have put together some great slow cooker recipes for you to enjoy. Most of us have busy lives, working hard, raising a family and nothing beats coming home and having dinner ready and waiting for you after a hard day.
The slow cooker or what many of us know it as the crock pot, is an appliance that can serve up great meals with little to moderate prep time. The slow cooker allows you to add all the ingredients in the morning or the night before, turn it on and walk away for a few hours or all day without having to wait and stand over the stove.

Not all slow cookers are the same, they can range in price from $20 to $200. Some slow cookers run hotter than others at the same settings, so it helps to know your slow cooker.
Some features to look for that we really like are programmable timers, warming modes and a thermometer probe. A thermometer probe is inserted into the center of a roast through a small opening in the lid, you then have the ability to select a temperature to set the roast at, once the internal temperature is reached, the slow cooker will switch to warm mode, preventing the roast from overcooking.
For large roast or cooking for a gang we recommend at least a large oval 6 quarts slow cooker.
Not all recipes for beef are equal, simply throwing any cut of meat with whatever spices you can find in your kitchen cupboards, may not deliver the best slow cooker recipes.

Slow cookers come with two settings, low and high. There really is nothing better than throwing everything into the slow cooker in the morning, setting it and forgetting it, coming home after a hard day at work and supper is ready and waiting for you when you get home.
However there are days when you just don't have the time to wait for your meal to cook all day. Some days we can't decide what we want for supper until midday, these are the times when cooking on high is a good option for the slow cooker.
If you do have the choice go with the low setting on your slow cooker. We have found with most slow cooker recipes, cooking on the low setting will give you a meal that is a little more tender and moist compared to cooking on the high setting.
