Crock Pot Recipes – General FAQ
These are the most common questions we get about crock pot recipes, hopefully they’ll help point you in the right direction. You’re always welcome to message us or leave a comment if there’s something we haven’t covered!
What is the difference between a slow cooker and a Crock Pot?
The difference between a slow cooker and a Crock Pot is only that the Crock Pot is a specific brand of slow cooker. There are many companies that make slow cookers, Crock Pot is the most widely known name.
What is the best slow cooker to buy?
The best slow cooker to buy is the one that suits your needs. If you have a small family, get a smaller slow cooker, if you need the ability to saute get one with more features, if you want to cook for a large crowd get a roaster, and if you want to pressure cook in addition to slow cook, get an Instant Pot.
How economical is a slow cooker?
Slow cookers are very economical, your basic slow cooker uses only a little more energy than a traditional light bulb, whereas the oven is typically the most expensive appliance to run in the house.
Studies have shown that the slow cooker can be a cost savings of well over 50% when compared to cooking the same dish in an oven.

Crock Pot Recipes – Tips and Tricks
★ Keep the lid on! If you take the lid off your crockpot to stir or smell or just poke around, you’re releasing the heat and steam that is working hard on cooking your food. Just don’t do it.
★ Make sure you use the right size crock pot! Using a slow cooker that is too large or too small for your food may prevent the food from cooking properly.
★ For sticky or messy dishes use a crock pot liner. I don’t like them for everything, but you’d better believe I’m lining my slow cooker when we do sweet potatoes or candies! Crock pot recipes don’t have to be messy.
Not everyone loves beans, so this chili is perfect for our bean free friends. Actually it’s perfect for everyone, because it’s delicious!

Can you put raw meat in a slow cooker?
You can put raw meat in a slow cooker. You certainly can add meat to the crockpot. As a matter of fact, many (if not most) slow-cooker recipes ask for the meat to be added raw. Even in recipes that require browning, that step can generally be skipped when pressed for time.
Can you put frozen meat in a slow cooker?
You cannot put frozen meat in a slow cooker. Regardless of what your friends say it is unsafe and unwise to put frozen meat in a slow cooker because it does not reach a safe temperature fast enough and can grow harmful bacteria that contaminates the meat before it reaches a safe temperature.

Have you ever had the chicken gnocchi soup from Olive Garden? It’s fantastic! One of my favorites! Which is why I love this copycat recipe so much.
It might not taste *exactly* like that restaurant favorite, but it’s still pretty darn yummy! And easy. And creamy. And thick, and delicious. I could go on, but… I think you get the point.

Crock Pot Recipes – Crock Pot vs Instant Pot
Is an Instant Pot better than a Crockpot?
An Instant Pot is better than a Crockpot if you need the ability to pressure cook food as well as slow cook food. The Instant Pot is a multi-function machine whereas the traditional Crockpot is a slow cooker.
Can you use an instant pot as a crock pot?
The Instant Pot can be used as a crock pot because the Instant Pot has a slow cooker function on it. Many folks like the clear lid of the Crockpot so they will buy an alternate glass lid for their instant pot to use when they are slow cooking.
You guys. This may just be the easiest recipe ever. Only 8 ingredients, and virtually no prep – just dump and cook! The hardest part will be waiting for it to be ready to serve.
You could even prep this ahead of time and stick it in the freezer so when you’re ready to make it you can just thaw and put it in your crock pot! Woohoo!
Did you know you could make a whole chicken in the slow cooker? Mind = blown. I especially love this for the holidays, because it frees up your oven for other tasty goodies!
And it’s also great for meal prepping…no more running to the store for a rotisserie chicken when you can just make your own at home and have it flavored exactly the way you want it!
While this recipe does involve a little bit of prep work, it is well worth it because the end result is a savory, garlicky, flavorful, tasty dish that your whole family is going to love!

I absolutely LOVE the name of this stew! I mean, it rhymes, so….it’s gotta be good, right? I actually really enjoy cooking with ale, because it adds such an amazing depth of flavor to whatever dish it’s used in. This stew is no exception.
Did I mention this stew is also vegan? Yep! And it’s just loaded up with squash and beans and veggies, so even though there’s no meat, it’s still hearty enough to fill you up and be considered a comfort food.
I have a weak spot for barbecue sauce. I will eat it like I’m never getting another meal ever again. This pulled chicken is no exception. I normally do BBQ pulled chicken with just two ingredients….chicken breasts and barbecue sauce.
But what I love about this recipe is that in addition to those two things, you also add a variety of spices, which means the flavor is eyes rolling into the back of your head amazing.
Doesn’t this dish sound fabulous? I can’t decide if it’s a stew or not. It has all the elements of one, but I guess you could also refer to it as a casserole since it’s a big mish mash of awesome ingredients.
I totally want to make a pot pie with this, or just slop a giant spoonful over a big bowl of mashed potatoes. Yum!
Oh my gosh…. Bread pudding, apples, salted caramel… is there anything about this dessert that doesn’t yell “IT’S FALL, Y’ALL!”
Bread pudding not only makes a wonderful dessert (I’m drooling just thinking about topping a big ol’ piece of it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream) but it also works as a deliciously yummy breakfast for holiday mornings!
This is the kind of slow cooker recipe that makes you nostalgic for a home far away and long forgotten. Classic comfort food. Delicious, hearty, rich and flavorful, I have no doubt that it will soon become a family favorite!
This recipe is great. There’s literally almost no prep – no pre-cooking any meats, caramelizing onions, or chopping up a bajillion veggies. You just toss everything in your slow cooker and walk away for a few hours.
Not only that, but using a lean protein like chicken instead of beef makes it a slightly healthier version of the Philly cheesesteaks we all know and love. And it’s great for feeding a crowd!

Don’t you just love a good pot roast?! This recipe is one of the best! I love the addition of pepperoncinis – it gives it a nice little kick without being in your face spicy.
The stick of butter is what helps make the gravy that you will most definitely want to pour all over this roast when you finally take it out of the pot. And as always, pot roast is best served with some homemade mashed potatoes and a side of roasted veggies. Yum!
This nacho bake is pretty brilliant. If you’re making it at home for your family, you could totally pour it over a plate of nachos with shredded cheese and throw it in the oven for a few.
But if you want to serve it at a party (SuperBowl anyone??) just leave it in the slow cooker and serve it nacho bar style! Use it as a dip! It’s fantastic no matter how you eat it.
You guys. I am in love with the idea of using peaches instead of apples to make this pulled pork recipe. They’re sweet and juicy, which leaves the meat oh so tender and basically melt in your mouth delicious.
Serve it with sliders or over a big helping of mashed potatoes! Yum! Aren’t crock pot recipes the best?!
In case you didn’t know, a ragu is an Italian meat-based sauce that’s usually very meat and vegetable heavy, with a few tomatoes and some heavy cream to help lighten the flavor.
And it’s absolutely delicious. I also think it’s absolutely brilliant to serve it over gnocchi instead of plain pasta! Wow!
