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 ones I have made 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.
1. Slow Cooker Curried Beef and Vegetables by Create Bake Make
2. 5 Hour Slow Cooked Beef Vindaloo by Mr and Mrs Romance
3. Slow Cooker Butter Chicken by Woolworths
4. Simple Slow Cooker Satay Recipe by Stacey Claire
5. Slow Cooker Lamb Stew by Be a Fun Mum
6. Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef by The Recipe Critic
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.
