As a mom, I don’t think I need to spend a lot of time explaining why I love my slow cooker. It makes insanely delicious meals with little to no prep time or clean up and makes my kitchen smell amazing. Plus, by cooking the food low and slow it really allows the flavors to take their time together and create a lot of depth with very little work. Yeah. We’re buds. Even better about this particular recipe is that you can easily chop, slice, mince and juice everything the night before so on cooking day, you can dump everything in the slow cooker at the start of the day and you’re good to go.
