Do you love slow cooker recipes? Wish every day could be a crock-pot day? That is exactly what I dreamed of, over and over again…but then I’d stop dead in my tracks remembering the MESS of CLEANING the crock-pot. So, I’d opt for another method.
To me, “simple” was very hard when it came to dealing with scrubbing “that thing.” First problem, my crockpot is very big. I don’t know how big….a gallon of milk would easily fit in it so I guess it’s a gallon? Whatever. Second, there is no room in my kitchen cupboards for it. I have to keep it in my storage room and lug it out when I need it.
I’d only used it once or twice for years, avoiding it like a dreaded disease! Then my very smart 20-something son, Zac, told me “use a liner”.
I bought Reynolds SlowCooker Liners and they work great! Oh, you may have to wipe some edges clean with a sponge but, for the most part, just throw the liner away and you are done! Totally easy.
My favorite slow-cooker recipe is Beef Stew. I make it once a month, now that I have my liners. Pulled pork is also great in a slow-cooker.l
I did find this recipe for Meatball Sliders on The Frugal Girls. It looks amazing!
