Cook Time: 8 hours in slow cooker
Freezer to Slow Cooker meals are my favorite - because you put in all the work in advance, and just have to “add to slow cooker” and go. Yes, from completely frozen. As long as you’re slow cooking on low for at least 8 hours, you can drop the ingredients in frozen and come home to a perfectly cooked, delicious dinner. Just warm up some bread and dinner is ready! Enjoy!
