Our 9 Must-Try Slow Cooker Meals

While we love the air fryer and all of the kitchen gadgets out there that make your life easier, we feel like the beauty of the crock pot has been lost to the hype around what’s new and faster. We like our butter slow-churned and our dinners slow cooked, so we’re here to remind you the kitchen gadget that’s likely collecting dust right now is actually the ultimate utility. 

How, you ask? Well, for starters, if you and your family have completely different schedules, a slow cooker lets you throw in some ingredients in the morning and forget about it all day. So when you return home, you have a warm, delicious meal waiting for you and your family. Plus, if you choose to cook in a crock pot, you cut down the number of dishes you’re going to do by heaps. See why it’s time to bring this gadget back into your life? 

To give you an extra push to pull the slow cooker out of storage, we’ve pulled together our butter-friendly recipes that will remind you why you love the crock pot so much.
