Slow Cookers: Make For Easy Winter Meals

I have been so obsessed with my Crock-Pot (slow cooker) this winter. It is such an easy way to have hearty and cozy dinners ready to serve with little to no fuss. Yes, sometimes I am that lazy and don’t want to attend to my food, standing by my stove for 20 minutes!

This slow cooker meatball recipe is adapted from my paleo turkey meatball recipe, which is pan seared in a cast iron skillet. They are packed with flavors and they are gluten-free and grain free.

“Cast Iron Meatballs” in Slow Cooker

As much as I love that char and crispy outside of these meatballs, some days there is not enough time for me to carefully attend to these bad boys. Also, if you don’t feel like cleaning all the oil that can splash on your stove, or maybe you just don’t feel like having that smoke in your kitchen, this is for you. It is also so helpful for those hustle and bustle days when dinner is the last thing you want to/have time to make. I just gave you some solid reasons why recently I prefer slow cooker when it comes to cooking! Trust me, I spend enough time in the kitchen and I am all about minimizing the effort and maximizing the result.

Needless to say, this recipe is one of those low-effort, high-result recipes that you are going to love. You can even have it cooking during the day while you are off to work or running errands (see that multi-tasking skill?).

Making this slow cooker meatball recipe couldn’t get any easier and it is especially delicious. Just picture this; slow-cooked meatballs and tomatoes on a cold winter day…all the prep work you need to do for this recipe is to make the meatballs (you can find the recipe Here), and submerge them in your favorite tomato sauce. After that, you can leave it alone and not check back in for another 4 hours when you can’t help yourself from that heavenly smell in your house.
