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. Perfect way to use my new Cuisinart multi-cooker (slow cooker).
I love using my new Cuisinart Slow Cooker! (I gave away my old one!)
Not only is it a slow cooker, but it's a Multicooker!
That means it can be used to quickly brown or sauté the meat (up to 400 °F) before setting it to slow cook (at various temps) ...
and there's a 'steam' option as well!
With a 24-hour timer and an automatic Keep Warm feature, I LOVE this! Click on the photo for more information!!!!! You'll love using this, just like I do!

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.
