6 Easy Slow Cooker Meals That Make The Best Leftovers

If you are looking for some easy meals to make this winter, you must bookmark these 6 easy slow cooker meals that make the best leftovers. These recipes are from some of my favourite bloggers and they have literally saved me in the kitchen.

I use my slow cooker all year round – even in summer. We have ducted air conditioning so I don’t find the house gets hotter from the use of our slow cooker. But in winter, it gets a decent work out.

It certainly makes the dinner routine so much easier. I put all the ingredients as needed into the slow cooker (or crockpot) and let the appliance do the cooking.

These recipes are on high rotation in our house and they use ingredients you may already have in your pantry.

Best of all, the leftovers taste great reheated the next day for lunch.

If your family complains about slow cooker meals tasting the same, I can guarantee NONE of these meals taste like the other. And only a few include tomatoes.

So without further ado, here are my favourite 6 easy slower cooker meals that make the best leftovers.

The leftovers should be sealed (straight from being cooked) into a microwaveable (BPA free) container and placed in the fridge. I usually eat the leftovers the next day.

I generally spread our slow cooked meals around so we have a different meat each night or so.

These are my go-to recipes which always turn out well when I make them, and they smell amazing when slowly cooking away on the benchtop.

What is your favourite slow cooker meal? What meals do you have on high rotation in winter?

    Easiest roast by slow cooking a leg or shoulder of lamb or pork…it’s tender pull apart to die for 🙂

    • I need to do this more. I know other mums do this and get a few meals out of the big portion of meat.
