Popular Slow Cooker Recipes

Though they fell out of vogue for a while, crock pots are back with a vengeance - and with good reason. These countertop cookers take all of the guesswork out of family meals, and they can have your dinner hot and ready when you walk in the door after a long day of work. Sure, they have limitations (no browning, sorry) but the long, slow-cooking process is perfect for achieving tenderness in meats and creating lovely stews. Slow cooker recipes can turn chicken, beef, and pork into dinner with just a couple minutes of prep. Throw in a pork shoulder with some orange juice and onions and it'll turn into fragrant pulled pork perfect for tacos by dinnertime. Feel like chili? You can pretty much dump all of the ingredients together, set the timer, and walk away - it'll be a Texas-style feast when you return hours later.

Country Swiss Steak

The Swiss don't actually make Swiss steak. The recipe name is believed to be English and likely comes from relating the process of smoothing out cloth between rollers called "swissing" to pounding and flattening of the meat, a step we've skipped in this slow cooker version.
