There are so many things we love about the trusty slow cooker. Not only is it a great way to use cheaper cuts of meat (the tougher, the better!), it’s by far the easiest way to cook. You just chuck in all your ingredients, put on the timer and voila, it’s all ready for you a few hours later!
There’s just one thing about slow cooking we’re not quite so keen on. It’s kind of annoying when you get home from work and your dinner is almost all ready for you— but then you remember you have to cook up some rice, pasta or roast veggies to go with it.
However, it’s precisely this dilemma that makes the slow cooker so awesome for people on a keto diet. Most crock pot recipes are focused on protein, veggies and fat (the good kind) and since carbs are off the menu, you won’t have to worry about doing those separately!
Whether you’re prepping your menu for the holiday season or are just looking for some quick, keto-friendly meals, here are nine delicious low carb recipes you can make in the slow cooker.
