1. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
This slow cooker pulled pork comes out perfect every time. Simply take a 3-4 pound Boston butt roast and place inside your slow cooker with a small can of beef broth. Cook on low for about 8 hours, pull apart, and drain. Then, add a bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce and serve! Great with potato salad, garden salad, fresh bakery buns, and your favorite dessert!
2. Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken
For this delicious south of the border-inspired meal, you’ll need 4-5 boneless chicken breasts, 2 packs of taco seasoning, a small can of green chilies, and a 15 ounce can of each of the following:
– fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
– Mexican or plain canned corn, drained
– black beans, rinsed and drained
– pinto beans, rinsed and drained
– red beans, rinsed and drained
Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours!
3. Slow Cooker Chicken and Gray
This savory dish is a year-round favorite around the country! Plus, it’s easy to make at home in your slow cooker. Place a 4-5 pound whole chicken (thawed) into your slow cooker on low heat for about 6 hours. At the end of 6 hours, carefully remove the chicken from your slow cooker and get ready to make gravy!
For the gravy, you’ll need about 1 1/2 cups of drippings. If you don’t have enough drippings, you can add water to compensate. Place in a saucepan over medium high heat. Whisk in 1/2 cup flour and stir until thick and bubbly. Season to taste!
