Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes + Giveaway

This past weekend and week have been all about slow cooker recipes. I’ve gone on and on about my love for my slow cooker and slow cooker recipes many times before, but seriously, this week she’s been my right and left arms, too!

Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes | addapinch.com

You see, we’re hosting two parties at my house this weekend, an engagement party for one niece and an 18th birthday party for another. As you can imagine, I decided it was the perfect time to clean out pantries, closets, and the cabinets under my bathroom sink.

And then I start thinking, “Why in the world am I cleaning out under my bathroom sink? There is stuff that has been hidden under here for five years for a reason!”

You’d think I’d just concentrate on getting my rugs cleaned and make sure all the light bulbs were working in my lamps, but nooooo, I have to take it 100 steps farther and decide to clean out places that surely no one will ever see during a party.

So, anyway, back to my favorite slow cooker recipes that we’ve survived off of this week plus plenty more that we love.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup | addapinch.com


Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup has to be one of the easiest recipes to toss all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it go for the day. It tempts me all day long with that glorious smell! Add a little bit of cornbread and we’re set!


BBQ Pork Chops | addapinch.com


Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops are so ridiculously easy that it is embarassing to even call it a recipe. But oh are they scrumptious!


Balsamic Roast Beef | addapinch.com

You probably could have guess that my balsamic roast beef had to happen. It is such a great recipe to cook once and then eat at least twice. We had roast and then french dip sandwiches and then stuffed mushrooms. It was heavenly.

If we’d not decided on the balsamic roast beef, this espresso roast beef I shared a while back would have been my go-to! Oh my word, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe from addapinch.com


And tonight, well these chicken enchiladas are happening in my house. I can’t wait!


Slow Cooker Oatmeal | addapinch.com

At the beginning of the week, I toss steel cut oats into the slow cooker for this overnight slow cooker oatmeal. That along with my slow cooker grits, baked bacon, and hard cooked eggs in the oven or some yogurt and we’ve not realized I hadn’t cooked in the morning!

    I would love to try the vegetable soup, as well as other soups and stews. Been wanting one of these puppies for a long time to throw stuff in in the morning and turn into something amazing by the time I get home. Awesomeness!

    I re-pinned your Caramel Cake on Pinterest. I’ve made lots of cakes through the years, but have never tried caramel. Maybe for Easter!

    I’ve been dying to try both your Balsamic Roast Beef and Dr Pepper Roast Beef recipes but alas to date I haven’t – I had both non-pulling beef (and pork!) experiences trying to re-create slow-cooker recipes in a conventional oven, so holding off on those until I have the right equipment! Yum! :)

    They all look awesome! I would have to say right now I am drooling over the BBQ pork chops. Always looking for a pork chop recipe. Next on my list is the espresso roast beef.

    I am already getting emails…which I love.
    Already following on Pinterest also.
    Have pinned several recipes, but just added a few new ones.
