My 2 favourite slow cooker recipe…

If you don’t have a slow cooker, you need one! I bought mine from Target years ago for about $79 and it’s still going strong. It’s really easy to use, let’s you utilise cheap meats and leaves everything super tender. The best part, it’s set and forget… I throw everything in before I start work and come home to a delicious, perfectly cooked meal.
