Crockpot Recipes & Slow Cooker Meals: Best Crockpot Recipes 2022
Crockpot recipes and ideas that are easy
1. Slow Cooker Short Ribs
All of us have been to restaurants and enjoyed a plate of tender short ribs. We wish we could replicate the experience at home.
You want to find their secret? Timing is everything!
The meat must be first seasoned and browned in hot pans. This step should not be skipped! This helps preserve the juices and gives the beef a great crust.
All you have to do is put everything in the pot, and not dive in too soon. To achieve that tender texture, these ribs should be cooked on a low heat for at least two hours.
2. Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
Everyone will love chicken and dumplings.
Comfort food at its best: fluffy homemade dumplings with creamy soup This is comfort food at its best.
There’s even a secret ingredient! Evaporated milk is what makes these dumplings extra creamy.

This family-favorite recipe will spice up your weeknight meals!
It is all the flavor of your favorite Mexican dish in one big bowl of soup.

Beef stew may be the perfect winter warmer.
You will be closing your eyes as you savor every bite of the savory and hearty beef.
I love the additions of carrot, peas, and corn. It would also be delicious with sweet potatoes or parsnips.
7. Slow Cooker Macaroni & Cheese
I confess that I am a little obsessed with mac ‘n cheese. My cupboard is empty of any boxes. My house has no powdered cheese.
You’ll never look back once you realize how simple it is to make your own home.
This recipe calls for American cheddar. However, I love to add smoked gouda and extra fancy gruyere.
For the ultimate comfort food, top it with bacon and breadcrumbs.
8. Crockpot Lasagna
The appeal of a Crockpot for me is the ability to mix everything (more or less) and then walk away.
You can forget about dinner for a while and return to it when you are ready.
This layering is very similar to regular lasagna except that you don’t have to cook the pasta first.
This recipe is great for making ahead and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five consecutive days.
9. Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole
It is amazing that you can switch this on and then go to sleep and wake up to a delicious, hearty and deliciously warm breakfast.
In one pot, you’ll have a layer of bacon, sausage, vegetables, and cheesy egg.
You can experiment with the ingredients. You might think of adding some pulled pork leftovers to make it more luxurious.
10. Death by Chocolate Slow Cooker Lava Cake
It wasn’t all chilis and soups, didn’t you think?
You thought warm stew at home was delicious? Wait until you see this.
Warm chocolate fudge cake made with cake mix and topped with frosting, chocolate pudding, and chocolate chips.
This is not a delicate dessert, it’s obvious.
I recommend that you grab a spoon and eat straight from the pot. But, I suppose you could also share.
11. Crockpot Baked Potatoes
My table will always include the humble baked potato. It is easy to prepare, delicious, and can be paired with almost anything.
After being wrapped and cleaned, place them in the pot. They will become perfect and fluffy after a few hours.
If I was you, I would slice them open and stuff them with cheese and bacon. Put them back into the pot.
Enjoy the residual heat melting everything together.
12. 2-Ingredient BBQ Chicken
Although pulled pork is my favorite dish, I will often make pulled chicken for guests who are visiting.
They shouldn’t have to miss out on tender meats and BBQ sauces because they don’t eat pork.
The best thing about this method is that it cooks in the BBQ sauce and the juices. There’s no need to add any dry rub or anything else.
If you want to impress, make your mango-habanero barbecue sauce!
13. Slow cooker Italian meatballs

You can make it hot or cold as you like, and serve it with Mexican Cornbread.
16. Crock Pot Pork Chops
It’s the most disappointing thing to get thick and juicy pork chops only for them to dry in the pan.
This recipe eliminates the possibility of dry chops.
These chops are loaded with flavor thanks to the combination of chicken broth and beef broth. They will also be more tender than any other chops you have ever tried. You can make them in either a slow cooker or an instant pot.
17. Slow cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Soup
Some people find soups with a broth base not enough filling.

This bowl is filled with potatoes, carrots and beef.
18. Crockpot General Tso’s chicken
Another great takeout dish at home is this one!
Who doesn’t love General Tso?
This is possible by browning the chicken first. You will be amazed at how delicious the sauce tastes when you make a crust to hold it.
19. Slow Cooker Jambalaya
Jambalaya was always a problem for me because the rice would catch on the bottom of my pan.
I will undoubtedly walk away from you for a few too many minutes and always burn a corner!
A slow cooker can take all of the stress out.
This dish is classic, featuring Andouille sausage, chicken, shrimp, and more!
20. Baked Ziti
This dish is similar to a lasagna, with layers of meat, cheese and pasta.
This ricotta is my favorite because of its creamy texture and rich flavor. I also love the chunks of mozzarella that you can get by putting them in.

23. Peanut Butter Cup Cake
Peanut Butter + Cake = The Ultimate Crock Pot Dessert
You can easily flavor one boxed mix of cake mixes with peanut butter or chocolate sauce.
After mixing peanut butter glaze with milk, powdered sugar and peanut butter, the peanut butter glaze is drizzled with chocolate sauce.
My only suggestion would be to add peanut butter cups to your cake batter and to drizzle salted caramel on top.
24. Shrimp Chowder
You thought corn chowder was delicious? Wait until you taste this shrimp version.
After cooking the vegetables for an hour, make sure you get bigger shrimp.
Try a few of these if you are looking for the right side.
25. Crockpot Stuffing
It’s important to find ways to simplify your life when the holidays arrive and you have to feed five thousand people.
I bought two mini crockpots to make side dishes while I was doing other things. It’s well worth it!
Although I love the traditional sage stuffing with chicken stock, you can use any recipe.

This crockpot recipe will make your family a favorite. Bake beans, potato chips or mac and cheese are all good options.

Mixed berry cobbler is my favorite. It has to be the best, from the color to its flavor.
However, if you have a bag of peaches or a box of apples, feel free use them!
This dish is super sweet, rustic, and warm.
Do not worry about how pretty the top looks. The top should be sprayed on leaving enough space for the fruit bubble up.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
