156 comments | Leave Comment


Nothing like that aroma of a meaty stew cooking throughout the day – doesn’t matter whether you’re busy at home, or just returning after a long day. You take a sniff and the whole house tells you that dinner is ready!

Here are two great dishes that can satisfy the hungriest of tummies after a day at school or work. (They’re not only fab for your family, they’re gorgeous enough to serve to company too.)

Asian BBQ Beef Ribs with Seasoned Chips: the ribs are so mouthwateringly soft, the meat just falls right off the bone and melts in your mouth.
Beef Stew
Beef Stew with Root Vegetables: traditional and delicious. Serve it with thick, crusty bread and experience perfection!

Some other beef dishes for you to try:
Hearty Beef Stew with Scallion Biscuits
Brown Sugar Barbeque Beef Stew
Beef Goulash
Beef Porridge

CONTEST: What’s your beef? No, I mean, what’s your favorite slow cooker meat meal? (Aside from cholent, of course!) Answer my question in the comments AND sign up for our newsletter (right hand side of this page, scroll up a bit) in order to be entered for your chance to win a 6 Quart Slow Cooker from the folks at Cuisinart.

  1. I’m a huge fan of Jewish Slow Cooker Recipes by Laura Frankel. My favorite recipe is definitely the garlicky pot roast. Divine!

  2. follow on facebook

  3. and follow on twitter!

  4. My favorite slowcooker beef dish is probably Barley and Beef Soup. Its so simple and so filling! I just cut up the beef into cubes, add carrots,the barley and water, chopped onion, salt, pepper, and fresh dill and parsely. I like to serve it in bread bowls.

    I am a Newsletter Subscriber and my favorite slow cooker meal is Stew, but let me give you a favorite of mine. Stew Meat sauted with onion, add 1 46oz can of tomato juice, cut up potatoes, carrots and 1 can of green beans (juice and all) then sprinkle 2 tablespoon of minute tapioca crystals over the top and cook for 5 hours. Trust me it is great(the tapico sweetens and thickens it, we have it instead of over rice or noodles, over home made biscuits. Thanks for the giveaway and enjoy.

    You can then eat as is with a meal or shred and add your favorite barbeque sauce for barbeque.

    Good old pot roast. Toss a roast in the crockpot with some onion soup mix, some broth and turn it on. May add potatoes and carrots, sliced onions, lots of pepper. A nice twist is to use apple juice instead of broth.

  75. avatar says: Devo K

    My favorite slow cooker recipe is a kosher version of BBQ pulled pork I do.

    I place a whole turkey breast into the crock pot with about 1/2 cups of water and season it with black pepper and garlic powder.

    Cook on high for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    Let it cook, then shred the turkey by either pulling it apart with your fingers or two forks.

    Return the turkey to the crock pot (and the liquid still in it), add 2 bottles of your favorite BBQ sauce, mix thoroughly and cook on low for 45 minutes.

    Serve on hot dog or hamburger buns or in a flour tortilla. Cole Slaw, potato salad and pasta salad are great sides to serve with it.

  76. Perfect “1st House” gift for my son. Thanks for the opportunity

  77. avatar says: LeCat50

    I would love to have a new slow-cooker. They are such life savers!

  78. Jamie Darling,
    How crazy this came in today because I did just what you suggested – I dusted off my crock pot (nobody in my house eats chulent any more!) and made dinner in 10 minutes with some chicken and veggies! I can’t wait to peruse your recipes because after I realized how easy this was, I’m going to do it more often on days like today when I’ll be running with the kids right into dinnertime!!

  79. avatar says: Malkie

    Chicken cacciatore. Brown cut up chicken on stovetop for a few minutes before adding to slow cooker. Use marinara sauce or tomato sauce, one cut up chicken, chopped onion, minced garlic and sliced mushrooms. Salt and pepper and some Italian seasoning (basil, oregano). Cook on high setting for several hours. Don’t think this would work for shabbos because the chicken would probably fall apart.

    Your Shredded Lamb with Tomato & Basil sounds Sooooo good! We love lamb & I’m always looking for good recipes! (i can see doing it using different herbs, too, such as oregano, or rosemary… and it could be great served in a pita!) I haven’t used a slow cooker for many years and would love to try it again!
