53 Quick and Easy Crock Pot Recipes

53 Quick and Easy Crock Pot Recipes with 5 Ingredients or Less - Breakfast, Dinner, Desserts, dips, bread...everything you can imagine!A few weeks ago one of my friends was asking me if I knew of any easy crock pot meals…easy as in, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand, and there aren’t a million things involved.  I have a few that I love on my blog, so I sent her those, but then I had some major inspiration to put together a huge list of super easy crock pot meals.  Don’t have a crock pot? Don’t worry! They are pretty affordable and definitely pay off with the time you save, and the convenience.  I love this Programmable Cook and Carry 6qt. Slow Cooker. It can hold a ton of food, and it is super easy to travel with and clean (the stoneware comes out, and is dishwasher safe!).

There are so many recipes floating around on the internet for various crock pot meals, but sometimes when you actually check one out that looks good, you see there are 30 ingredients involved, and who has time for that when you are trying to save time and be efficient in the first place by using the crock pot and cooking ahead? 

That’s where this list comes in! I have put together a list of 53 super easy crock pot recipes and most have less than 5 ingredients (I am not counting spices and basic ingredients that most people have in their pantry…like flour and salt).  There are several main dishes, sides, breakfast, and dessert recipes….something for everyone!

  1. Thanks for including 2 of my recipes : ) Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for including my chicken stock recipe!

  3. The vegan quinoa chili looks amazing! Pinning this post 😉 thank you for this round up!

  4. Does anyone have a good crockpot recipe for braised beef short ribs w/o wine?

    • Cynthia, I would try either using beef broth or red wine vinegar. You could probably leave it out all together w/o a sub if you wanted. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Carrie From Carrie This Home says:

    Thank you so much for featuring my Crock Pot Berry Pork! I also love Six Sister’s Stuff’s BBQ sandwiches–we make that recipe all the time. This is a great recipe roundup so I’ll be pinning this.

  6. Wow. Crockpot cheesecake? I make a buffalo chicken chili in the crockpot and it’s so yummy and easy!

  7. Awesome list to resource! Who doesn’t need a huge list of easy meals?!! Yep, I’ll be pinning this right now! 😉

  8. yummy! what a great list!

  9. We are getting ready to remodel the kitchen so I need lots of crock pot ideas! Thanks for some good ones!

  10. Love my Crock Pot! These are all awesome. Pinned it! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Love the new spin on some traditional crockpot items! Always looking for new flavors to try. The African dish especially caught my eye! Sounds interesting:) The desserts look WAY yummy, too!! I’ll be pinning…thx!

  12. I made the Teriyaki Chicken recipe on Monday and it was DELICIOUS! My only recommendation is to double the recipe if you have a family of 4 or more. I have a 6’4 teen son along with my 17 yo daughter and husband and it wasn’t really enough…so next time I will double up everything. Thanks for sharing!

    • Glad to hear, Suzanne! That is also a good tip about doubling! For some reason whenever I cook in the crock, I always think it’s going to be an enormous amount, and then it turns out way less than I expect. I think because I am deceived by the size of the crock itself! I am happy to hear you liked the recipe though!

  13. What a great labor of slow-cookin’ love! Thanks for such a great roundup! :)

  14. Yum, these all look great, Allyson! Awesome roundup!

  15. This is an amazing round-up! Wow! I just got married last month and we received an awesome crock-pot, but I’ve been too intimidated to use it! With fall here now, and this phenomenal round-up of simple recipes I’m going to have to give it a try! Thanks so much for sharing this!
