This week’s menu is a must-make when you’ve got hungry people to feed! It’s packed with tons of flavor, is easy to make and as a bonus, the slow cooker does most of the work.
This week, I’m doing a little happy dance over this menu! It has a new main dish recipe, 2 Southern Soul reader favorites, and a classic cookie recipe, making this meal a prizewinner.
Along with all the recipes being loaded with flavor, I’m saving lots of time by using my slow cooker to prepare the Bourbon Meatballs. I’m a huge fan of “passive cooking” which allows me to get on with my day while making a great main dish.
Benefit Of Slow Cooking
You get to set it and forget it.
Most slow cooker recipes are so easy to make because you just load the cooker with your ingredients, set it to low or high, adjust the time and GO. It’s that simple. Some recipes may require that you sear your meat prior to cooking so that your dish will turn out with the best results possible. Other than that, things really are, set it and forget it.
You can turn inexpensive cuts of meat into something outstanding.
This is what I call a “cheap and cheerful” benefit of using a Crock Pot. I don’t know how many times I’ve purchased an inexpensive or on-sale piece of meat and turned it into something spectacular with the help of my slow cooker. This method of cooking produces deep, rich flavors along with amazing sauce and gravy.
You don’t have to wash a ton of dishes.
One-pot meals are super easy for “after supper cleanup duty” which is always a plus in my house.
