I am always looking to find ways to do things that make life easier. “Work smarter, not harder” are definitely words I believe in and I try to implement this into life whenever possible.

To mix things up a little, I want to introduce you to something that I have used to make my life easier long before I got sick. SLOW COOKER COOKING! These handy small appliances definitely makes getting to the table easy and fits into my “work smarter” attitude.

I am known by my family and friends as the “Crock Pot Queen”. Why? Because I have 6 of them in varying sizes and there has been times when I have had 3 going at one time plus my rice cooker. Nothing is better than coming home from work or church and having the smell of food meeting you at the door. Just plate up the food and enjoy!

I still use my Crock Pots now because my chronic illness makes cooking a tedious chore. I find great accomplishment in putting a meal on the table and doing so in a way that is smarter not harder!

This recipe is one of my Husband’s favorites! It is inspired by a recipe from The Recipe Critic. I have made a few minor changes to make it mine. (Okay, I change every recipe I make)

  1. This is a great dinner solution! We love meat and potatoes! I’ve said to my husband on numerous occasions how much I miss my slow cooker since coming to Costa Rica! For me I love cooking, but over a gas stove, on hot humid nights, I wish I had a slow cooker to alleviate using the stove for everything! I might search for one if our travels keep us in Costa Rica for a bit longer 😉

  2. I’m definitely trying this recipe! I have a slow cooker which is woefully underused. When I do use it I get great results but got in the habit of buying ready meals again – not good! This post will encourage me to get the slow cooker on!

  3. This sounds so gorgeously tasty and like such an easy meal to dish up once it’s put together! I’m such a sucker for anything with garlic in and chicken just sells it for me. Cant believe you have 6 crock pots haha!

    1. Insure do! I will have a meat in one, and a side in two others and rice in the rice cooker. Complete meal done!

      If you try it, let me know how you like it.

  4. Ah! I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a slow cooker for such a long time. Is there a brand or a specific type that you would recommend?
    Your recipe looks delicious. Definitely my kind of meal!

    1. They all work about the same. I would suggest not spending a lot until you know you will use it. The size is more important than the brand. Get one that is at least 7 quarts. That is a good size for anything you would want to make.
      Don’t go for all the bells and whistles. I had a digital one and I was not happy with it. I use the old turn dial ones. Cheaper and works great.

  5. I LOVE it when my slow cooker comes out! It is just so easy and a great way to make such tasty food. I will definitely be giving this recipe a try.
