Italian Hot Turkey Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
This easy dish was a big surprise. My husband rated it 9 out of 10 food stars.

Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Rating: 4.5 stars 506
This is tender, fall-off-the-bone roast beef with mushrooms. It's perfect as-is. Shred the leftovers for cheese steak sandwiches.

Slow Cooker Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 986
Hearty chili made in a slow cooker is an easy recipe for weeknight dinners.

Slow Cooker BBQ Apple Cider Pulled Pork

Pulled pork made in a slow cooker with apple cider. One of the best and easiest pulled pork recipes I've ever used. Serve in a sandwich, or as desired.

3 Ingredient Pulled Pork Barbeque

Rating: 4.5 stars 52
Cooking the pork loin alone is too dry. Add country-style pork ribs in the slow cooker along with the pork loin to give it more moistness and flavor. Serve this pulled pork barbeque on top of a baked potato or on buns for a sandwich.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Rating: 4.5 stars 442
This stovetop cabbage jambalaya is ready in just over an hour.

Rosemary-Roasted Chicken with Apples and Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 45
The beginning of fall comes with an abundance of apples, which means it's time to start baking! But more than pies, apples roast extremely well with chicken! This dish makes a fantastic sweater-weather meal, with beautifully roasted chicken and an apple, potato, and onion bake that takes advantage of the delicious roasted chicken drippings.

Lamb and Rice Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Rating: 4.5 stars 94
I love lamb burgers and lamb meatballs, so it's no surprise that I love lamb-stuffed cabbage rolls, and I'm happy to report that these particular 'lambage rolls' were the best non-beef version yet!

A Scotsman's Shepherd Pie

Rating: 5 stars 378
Yes, shepherd's pie is predominantly thought of as Irish or British. But since I'm Scottish, I thought I'd give it a unique twist to suit my ancestral tastes. The use of lamb, the smoky, heather taste of Guinness® Draught (Irish, I admit), and the topping of sharp Cheddar and smoked paprika give this version its unique, smoky-sweet flavor.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Rating: 3.5 stars 13
Just like yo' Irish mama used to make, and the brisket will melt in your mouth. Get a center cut of meat, not the 'point.' Super-tender and slices really nicely, just like butter. What little was leftover was made into a great hash the following morning.

Homemade Sloppy Joes

Rating: 4.5 stars 682
A rich beef filling in thick sauce makes the best homemade Sloppy Joes.

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Rating: 4 stars 279
Sirloin roast is infused with lots of garlic and slow cooked to perfection.
