Slow Cooker Keto Recipes
The slow cooker is my secret to success in the kitchen. It makes meal prep so much easier! I always make sure that one crockpot recipe is big enough for two meals. Thinking ahead is how I keep my family fed through the week without spending all my time cooking.
Keto recipes are the best in the slow cooker because there is hardly anything to prepare. Simply put the cuts of meat in the crockpot with a few other ingredients, then let the meal cook on low until ready. In my experience, the lower the heat and the longer the cooking time, the better the result. Even the toughest meats fall apart under those conditions.
Plus, slow cooker meals are ideal for staying on a budget because you can use the cheaper cuts of meat. For instance, chuck roast is an affordable cut and also featured in many of these recipes. You also save on oils and butter because the fat marbled throughout the meat cooks down over time, thereby making your meal all the more tasty.
Not only are slow cooker meals great for meal prep, delicious, and budget-friendly but they are easy too! You don’t even need to stir the meal, just leave the lid on and walk away.
