The slow cooker is heralded for making dinner a breeze, but sometimes the recipes are not as easy as they seem. We want slow cooker meals so we don’t have to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen, so in our minds, recipes that require a lot of chopping, the making of rubs, searing of meat and cooking up of bacon ― no matter how delicious ― adds work where it shouldn’t be.
That’s where dump recipes come in to save the day. Dump recipes might have an unfortunate name, but their philosophy is what folks are looking for. When it comes to slow cooker recipes, they’re as easy as it gets. Basically, dump recipes only require you to chop your ingredients, add them to the slow cooker and wait for it to make your food. They are the real easy recipes we’ve all been looking for.
