Satisfying Slow Cooker Recipes


Slow, simple, spectacular

There's nothing better than coming home to the smell of something delicious cooking on the counter. You can let these recipes simmer all day—and with just a bit of prep work, you'll have a hot and healthy dinner for a crowd (or leftovers for a week).

Vegetable-beef soup
While most beef soups are laden with fat and sodium, this recipe serves up a bowlful of lean protein and savory herbs. Garlic provides a dose of manganese, which keeps your bones strong, while the onions boost heart-healthy vitamin B6. Serve with Cornbread Crumbs, hot out of the oven.
