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 <a href="/recipes/chicken/crockpot/">chicken</a>, <a href="/recipes/beef/crockpot/">beef</a>, and <a href="/search/?searchTerm=slow%20cooker%20pork">pork</a> 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 <a href="/recipes/chili/crockpot/">chili</a>? 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.

Tomatillo Chicken Soup

From Midwest Living

Tomatillos (the key ingredient in green salsa) look like green tomatoes with papery husks. Although they can be eaten raw, we like to cook tomatillos with other ingredients to mellow and balance their tart flavor.
