Our young family are relocating from interstate and moving in with us until they find their own place (2 adults, 4 year old and 8 month old). I know it’s going to get pretty crazy at times!! Looking for some tried and tested slow cooker meals that can also be frozen. This grandma is trying to stay one step ahead of them.

  • Chicken Fajitas – Slow cook onion, capiscums and chicken breast with taco seasoning for 4 hours, shred and freeze.
    Beef and Mushroom casserole – beef cubed, mushrooms, carrot, celert a cup of red wine, a packet of tomato paste, hot water/beef stock, slow cook low for 8 hours, at the 4 hour mark add cubed potato.

  • I would recommend a chicken bacon and leek casserole, it is creamy and delicious serve over pasta.Any leftovers can be frozen then added as a pie filling at a later date

  • The slow cooker satchels at the super market have always done us well

  • There are some great facebook groups you can join. Our go to meals are apricot chicken and pulled beef.

  • I love a good slow cooker butter chicken, or my favourite easy ‘chuck a bunch of veggies in and hope for the best’

  • Spaghetti Bol is a great meal for all age groups & you can add finely diced extra veggies to it too!

  • pea and ham soup, apricot chicken, chicken cacciatore.

  • I love a slow cooked beef stroganoff!

  • I love roasting a whole chicken in the slow cooker and then returning all the bones to make chicken stock. It’s really easy.

  • Google lamb obsession it is so delicious with some mash and veggies

  • Slow cooked Chili con carne. Perfect for midweek meal.

  • A super easy one is mexican shredded chicken. Chicken breast, a jar of salsa. Cook it (great that it cooks in a short amount of time), shred it and then use it for tacos and burritos.

  • Here is a link to budget slow cooker recipes.


    I’m sorry I can’t say I’ve tried or tested any of these but thought it might be nice to just experiment and people have different tastes so it’s nice to just try something new sometimes. Also, it won’t cost you too much to feed them!
    Hoping it helps.

  • I recommend Goggle. So many recipes you can cook in a slow cooker that I had never even considered

  • There are so many slow cooker recipes out there !
