20 Recipes You Can Just Put In A Crock Pot And Forget About

I’ll be honest: cooking is a skill which I have yet to master. Despite my best efforts, whatever I cook usually ends up tasting a tad “off,” and my poor boyfriend is forced to hide his grimace and pretend that it’s delicious.

But, if you’re like me, and will never be a master chef in this lifetime, there are still sneaky ways to make homemade, edible food, that you aren’t ashamed to serve other people! The main key to his trickery is the handy-dandy slow-cooker — or, as it is more fondly known, the crock pot.

Crock pot recipes are so easy, they almost feel like cheating. You can literally cook a meal without having having to sear, flip or sauté anything. All you have to do is dump the ingredients into a pot and just bust a chill while your food essentially makes itself.

Here are some stupid-easy crock pot recipes to get your started, so you can impress your loved ones (and unloved ones) without having to exert any effort whatsoever. Because isn’t that really what the American dream is all about?
