Looking for the best Crockpot recipes to make in your slow cooker? You're going to love these easy family favorites!

Easy AND Delicious Crockpot Recipes

Looking for some of the most delicious crockpot recipes on the planet? You're in the right place, friend!

Getting my family around the table for dinner has become a big deal at our house. I love catching up with my kids and hubby, and have learned that our home is simply happier when yummy meals are planned and prepped ahead of time.

While I could probably take or leave a big fancy dinner myself, my family walks through the door almost every night shouting β€œwhat's for dinner tonight?!”

But with our crazy schedules it's hard to make that happen on busy nights. That's why crockpot meals are so handy and why I have SO STINKIN' MANY go-to crockpot recipes in my arsenal! I just love that I can make them early in the morning, and know that dinner is done.

And especially during the last year or so while we've all been eating at home even more, having simple meals prepared just made a stressful season a wee bit brighter.

Easy Crockpot Meals Eliminate Supper Time Stress

Thankfully, when my kids were tiny I realized that crockpot recipes were fast, low maintenance, and E-A-S-Y. Sadly though, a lot of crockpot recipes that I tried just didn't taste all that yummy, so I made it my life's mission to test and rate almost every single crockpot recipe on the planet.

Some have been amazing.

Some have been awful.

But I've pulled together the best ever crockpot recipes that we've consistently used over the years into one happy list. These crock pot meals are full of delicious dinners with easy slow cooker recipes and dinners that your family will really ENJOY eating.

In fact, as I was pulling these recipes out to share with you, so many feel like cozy old friends who I can't wait to bring back to our table again.

They're simple, frugal, and oh-so-cozy to come home to on crazy busy nights.

When you're making crockpot recipes, you want to make sure you have a cooker that meets your needs – here are some good

Best recommendations for the best crockpots to buy.

Best Programmable Slow Cooker

The Crock-Pot 6-Q Programmable Cook & Carry Slow Cooker is the one I use most days (Except mine's an older model) and I LOVE it! It's got the same portable features as the Cook & Carry (below) – but it's also PROGRAMMABLE. I love the extra feature of being able to program it to change over to low heat after a couple hours. I feel like it's the most well rounded crockpot!

Slow Cooker Tips I've Learned Over the Years

Crockpot Food Layering

When putting ingredients in the slow cooker as you make your crockpot recipes – this is a general rule of thumb to follow:

  1. Root Veggies (i.e. Carrots, Potatoes, Onions)
  2. Meat
  3. Seasonings
  4. OTHER Veggies
  5. Liquid

Low Heat vs High Heat in Slow Cooker Recipes

When cooking on low, 8 hours is a good rule of thumb. When cooking on high – 4-5 hours should do it.

Be aware that newer slow cookers seem to cook hotter than older models. And all-in-one air fryers that also slow cook – those tend to cook LOWER than normal crock pots. So much so you may need to count on an extra hour or so to get done.
