I’ve also included links to the original recipes so you can see how these dishes are made.
If you have any other favorite crockpot recipes or slow cooker meals that you think should be on this list, please leave them in the comments below!
1. Slow Cooker Short Ribs
Short ribs are a great cut of meat for the slow cooker because they’re tough and need to be cooked for a long time to become tender.
This recipe is adapted from a classic French dish called boeuf à la mode with a few American twists—the addition of potatoes and carrots, for example, and the use of beef broth instead of wine.
The result is a hearty, rustic stew that tastes like it took hours to make when in reality it’s ready in under three hours!
2. Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings
This classic comfort food is perfect for those days when you don’t feel like cooking but you still want something hearty, warm, and delicious.

They’re not as difficult as they look, and this recipe has all of the tips and tricks you need to get started on your journey toward becoming an expert at making homemade dumplings (including my favorite trick: using pre-made pie crust).
3. Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
This is one of my go-to recipes when I’m craving something really easy and satisfying.
It’s also super versatile—you can make it vegetarian or vegan by leaving out the chicken and adding more beans and veggies, or you can add meat if you’re partial to that sort of thing.
The recipe calls for chicken breasts, but feel free to substitute with any other cut of chicken if you prefer.
- Start by chopping up an onion and bell pepper, then throw them into the crockpot along with a handful of garlic cloves (I actually just buy pre-minced garlic).
- Add some chicken broth and tomatoes, then season with salt and pepper.
- Add in some corn tortillas, shredded cheese (I use cheddar), and green onions before cooking on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
- When it’s done cooking, shred up your chicken breasts (they should fall apart easily) and mix them into the soup along with some fresh lime juice and cilantro.
- Serve hot!
4. Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore
This recipe uses chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs like most chicken cacciatore recipes do, which makes it healthier than some versions out there but still just as flavorful!
All you need to do is throw all the ingredients into your slow cooker (including mushrooms), set it on low heat for eight hours, then thicken the sauce with cornstarch or flour before serving over rice or pasta or however else you’d like!
5. Crockpot Beef and Broccoli
This recipe is super easy, but it has a lot of flavor.
You can use a flank steak or a chuck roast, depending on what’s on sale where you are.
If you’re using flank steak, cut it into strips before placing it in your slow cooker; if you’re using chuck roast, just leave it as is.
Next, add in some sliced carrots and an onion that’s been cut into wedges.
You’ll want to put this all in your slow cooker with 2 cups of beef broth and 2 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce (you can also use regular soy sauce if that’s what you have).
Finally, add in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in 3 tablespoons of water and stir everything together so that the sauce comes together nicely—it should be thick enough to coat all of the meat nicely when done cooking!
Cook on low for 6-8 hours until the meat is tender and cooked through.

The casserole has a wonderfully moist and tender texture, and the leftovers (if there are any!) reheat beautifully.
For an extra bit of flavor and crunch, top with your favorite enchilada toppings just before serving.

57. Slow Cooker Baked Beans
Yes, no meat in this recipe, but who needs it when you’ve got tender, flavorful beans that have been slow-cooked to perfection?
These baked beans are the perfect crockpot side dish for any summer BBQ or potluck.
And, they couldn’t be easier to make!
Just throw all the ingredients into your crockpot and let it do its thing.
These beans have a great balance of sweetness and smokiness, with a hint of molasses and mustard.
They’re also nice and thick, thanks to the addition of some brown sugar and tomato paste.
If you like your baked beans on the sweeter side, feel free to add a bit more sugar.
And, if you want a little extra smoky flavor, you could add a teaspoon or two of liquid smoke.
58. Slow-Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Crockpot chicken recipes have a reputation for being bland, but this Slow-Cooker Chicken Stroganoff is an exception.
It’s packed with flavor, thanks to a combination of mushrooms, onion, garlic, and a few secret ingredients.
The best part is that it’s easy to make, and the chicken comes out perfectly cooked and juicy every time.
If you’re looking for a way to jazz up this recipe, try adding some chopped bacon or smoked paprika to the mix.
You can also swap out the chicken for beef or pork if you prefer.
Either way, you’re sure to end up with a delicious and satisfying meal.
59. Slow-Cooker Hawaiian Ribs
Have you ever been to Hawaii?
The food there is absolutely amazing, and these Slow-Cooker Hawaiian Ribs are the perfect way to bring a taste of the islands into your own home.
The ribs are covered in a sweet and tangy sauce made with pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce, and the slow cooker does all the work so you can just sit back and enjoy the flavors of Hawaii.
These ribs are so easy to make, and the slow cooker makes them super tender and juicy.
I like to serve them over rice with a side of steamed vegetables, but you could also serve them with a salad or some Hawaiian rolls.
If you want to really jazz up this dish, you could add some chopped fresh pineapple to the sauce or sprinkle some toasted coconut flakes on top.
Either way, you’re sure to enjoy these delicious Hawaiian-inspired ribs!
60. Slow Cooker Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs
Lastly on my list of slow cooker recipes is this dish for red wine-braised short ribs.
The ribs come out very flavorful, and the texture is perfect – not too tough, and not too soft.
The difficulty level is moderate, and the dish can be jazzed up by adding some additional vegetables, such as carrots or potatoes.
If you want to try something new and delicious, give this recipe a go!
For dessert, I recommend a simple chocolate cake or brownies – both of which can be made in a slow cooker as well.
