I seriously don’t know what I’d do without my beloved Crock-Pot® slow cooker. From appetizers to desserts I use it year round. Sure it’s great to use for dinner on hectic nights but even on those nights that aren’t hectic I’m all about using my slow cooker. And why not? It makes the most tender and juicy roasts and the best pulled pork that tastes like it came from a Southern BBQ joint. On top of that soups, stews and even cobblers, cakes and some amazing ooey, gooey cheesy dips. If I can cut my prep time down in the kitchen and go about my day without worry about having to cook dinner and let my slow cooker do all the work I’m a happy mommy. It’s effortless cooking with delicious results. What more could you ask for?
I remember my mom using her Crock-Pot® slow cooker when I was young. I’m 41 and she still uses her original circa 1970’s orange slow cooker. I always remember her rocking her Beef Stew in it. It’s classic comfort food at it’s best and it’s all thanks to the slow cooker. Even though I love her vintage slow cooker it’s definitely time for her to upgrade. I have such an attachment to the ones I own. I have the Crock-Pot® Cook and Carry and 5 in 1 Multi-Cooker. They’re both awesome! You’ll see the 5 in 1 Multi Cooker in action in my video below. Trust me, you’ll want it! Whether you are looking to upgrade, give one as a gift or purchase one for yourself I definitely recommend both!
So I’m super excited to have teamed up with Crock-Pot® brand to bring you some of my favorite slow cooker recipes. From easy weeknight meals like this Asian Style Shredded Beef to fun football entertaining foods, comforting fall favorites and even holiday entertaining; if you love your slow cooker as much as I do you’ll love the recipes I have in store for you! You can even find more tasty recipes on the Crock-Pot® brand website to keep you slow cooking all week long!
What I love about my Crock-Pot slow cooker Asian Style Shredded Beef is it’s so versatile and smells ah-mazing when it’s cooking. I love it sandwiched between a warm flour tortilla topped with crunchy slaw and cilantro and my kids and Mr.Mother Thyme love it over rice. It’s even good piled high on kaiser rolls too. So when I have this on the menu I’ll whip up a side of rice to serve along with my crunchy slaw and some tortillas and everyone can dig in and make whatever they want. What’s also so good about this recipe is the meat is so tender and juicy and has a ton of flavor thanks to this incredible sauce that you can easily whip up with some of my favorite pantry staples. If you love to make takeout meals at home you’ll probably have all the sauce ingredients already on hand. I also always keep a chuck roast in my freezer. I usually buy the family 2 pack at my grocery store so I buy one to use right away and freeze one for later. Chuck roast in the slow cooker is pretty magical. If you’ve cooked chuck roast in the slow cooker you know how it turns a rather tough cut of meat into the moist tender and juicy meat that literally falls apart which makes it perfect for this shredded beef.
If you’re working on some menu planning and looking for some new ideas to cook in your slow cooker you’ll want to try this. It’s definitely a keeper!
