I’m a huge fan of my slow cooker. It’s such an easy and hassle-free way to make so many delicious meals. So I decided to compile 30 of my favorite slow cooker dinner ideas. These are my go-to recipes anytime I’m not sure what to make for dinner.

Just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker, get back to the day, and come back at dinner time for a perfect dish. If you have a slow cooker and you’ve been searching for more dinner ideas, you’ve got to try these recipes. I promise you they won’t let you down.

Why We Love These Slow Cooker Recipes 

Like I said, I’m a big fan of using my slow cooker. Here are a few reasons why you should try these slow cooker recipes the next time you need to make dinner.

  • They’re so easy. Recipes don’t get easier than these. For most of these 30 recipes, you simply put the food in the slow cooker, turn it on, walk away, and come back some hours later. What could be more simple than that? 
  • A perfect cook every time. Unlike some other methods, you don’t really have to worry about under or over cooking meat with a slow cooker. You don’t have to mess with the meat, and by the time dinner is ready, it will be juicy, tender, and melting in your mouth.
  • So much flavor. My favorite thing about slow cookers? The amount of flavor you get in your meals. It’s shocking how much more flavor you can get in a soup, or a piece of meat, by cooking it in the slow cooker for 6 or 8 hours.
