The holidays bring a lot of joy, but they can also bring a lot of anxiety, especially if you’re the person who ends up hosting every year. There are cooks out there dealing with Thanskgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s back-to-back…it’s a lot of cooking, and a lot of planning. But there is something that can help take away some of the frantic energy that comes with preparing a celebratory feast. Enter: Holiday main courses you can make in the slow cooker.
Instead of stressing out over stewed beef or roasted turkey, let your slow cooker do all the heavy lifting. The slow cook feature works by applying moderate heat over a long period of time, which helps meat get tender without drying out. Plus, you can set it and forget it. Win-win, right?
If you’re not sure what kind of slow cooker holiday main course to serve this year, the list below is here to guide you. We’ve got everything from stews to scrumptious slow-cooked brisket.
