Fall. The time of year where it starts to get chilly and hearty meals is where it’s at!
This time last year, Hamilton Beach reached out to me to share a favorite slow cooker recipe of mine and I shared an amazing Apple Crisp recipe. So this year when they reached out to me about trying their Programmable Stay of Go 6 Quart Slow Cooker, I decided to switch it up and share a delicious dinner idea: Mississippi Pot Roast!
Straight up – slow cookers are my thing. Who doesn’t love an appliance that you put food into, leave alone for 8 hours, and magically dinner is ready for you when you check back?! Well this exact slow cooker has three temperature settings and a timer…a timer! I’ve never owned one that keeps track of how long it’s been cooking and I know that sounds simple enough to take care of yourself BUT when you are trying to prepare a meal and your baby is crying…sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the starting time. So this takes care of that. 😉 Also, this cooker’s lid is hinged and locks so it’s easy to transport if you need to take meals to family get togethers/holiday functions. You can see all of the other features here.
I’m always on the hunt for easy slow cooker recipes…and I mean easy…as in you throw items in and that’s all you do, no extra prepping or adding things in after it’s done! And of course, recipes that don’t have a ton of ingredients are a major plus too! If that’s something you and your family appreciate too, I highly recommend giving the Mississippi Pot Roast a try!
