Slow Cooker Recipes

Slow Cooker Sauerbraten

Why include my best slow cooker recipes aka Langsamkocher Rezepte, on a website that's supposed to have quick recipes?  Well, nothing is much quicker that spending a few minutes in the kitchen in the morning. Then, leave for a day at work or shopping, and then come home to a dinner that just takes a few more minutes to finish off.

Buy some fresh bread on the way home, or make a quick salad. Dinner's ready.  As well, these recipes are often more economical. One can use less tender cuts of meat.

The slow cooker is also great for cooking soups - especially ones that use dried peas or beans. The green split pea soup is a good example. Throw everything in quickly in the morning, and it will be ready for you once you step in the door after a busy day at work.

Or, how about a pot roast for supper? Just put everything in the crockpot before you leave for the day; you can even get it ready the night before. Then, come home to the delicious homemade German pot roast dinner. It's one of the best crock pot recipes.

What's the difference between a slow cooker and a crock pot?

I had to check this one out myself. It appears that Crock-Pot is a U.S. trademark for a slow cooker. It's become a term that's used generically. In the U.K., the Slo-Cooker is the trademark for the same thing.

Slow Cooker Tips

  • When you are using your own regular recipes and adapting them for the slow cooker, only use about ¾ the amount of liquid, since no steam escapes.
  • If you are cooking meat and veggies in the cooker, make sure the veggies are under the meat. Potatoes, particularly, need to be pushed down, way below the surface of the liquid, or they will not cook properly.

Make every day a WISE day!

"Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God."

Psalm 53:1 (NLT)





What others are saying . . .

Anne says, "Just made this last week for my Birthday. I usually add walnut pieces or almond slivers. Can't believe it looks exactly the same as my Mama taught me some 40 years ago, the only thing what we did different, we use a fork to make the ridges in the apples. But they do open up better the way you do it with the knife. And you are right, this recipe never fails :)"

Gabriele H. says, "What a wonderful place to find German recipes without having to call family in Germany. I'm loving it."

Catherine R. says, "Tomorrow is a good day to try this!"

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
