Additional notes

  • The fuller the slow cooker, the longer it will take to cook your food.
  • According to the official Crock-Pot website, you can safely cook frozen meat in your slow cooker. If you still don’t like the idea, you can put the bag in the fridge the night before, and the meat should be defrosted by the morning.
  • Never put the plastic bag in the slow cooker. Always dump out the contents to prepare your meal.
  • When you freeze the bag, make sure the frozen lump (for lack of a better word) will easily fit into your cooker.
  • One reader suggested putting the dinners into slow cooker liners and then into the freezer bags.
