7 Recipes to Make in a 5-Quart Slow Cooker

Saucy Ranch Pork and Potatoes

I got a great ranch pork roast recipe from my sister Elyse. This dish was created by tweaking it to use pantry ingredients.

Gingered Short Ribs with Green Rice

I made short ribs for the slow cooker because I adore Korean flavors. The food itself is also gorgeous! 

Chicken Stew with Gnocchi

As it simmers in the slow cooker, my chicken stew smells great. One fragrance sends my family to the kitchen to check the readiness.

Crunchy Candy Clusters

I make these simple cereal and marshmallow clusters for the holidays because my family loves them.

Potluck Macaroni and Cheese

Making macaroni and cheese for the potluck guarantees a winner. This slow cooker version is extra creamy. 

Forgotten Jambalaya

I make this jambalaya monthly during cold weather. Simply chop the vegetables, put them in the slow cooker, and forget it! My fussy sons adore this spicy dish.

Slow-Cooker Pork Chops

Fork-tender slow-cooker pork chops with creamy, light sauce will please everyone. Add mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or salad and a green veggie. Best slow cooker pork chops.
