Ah... the slow cooker! The kitchen appliance that makes the preparation of many recipes so simple😊. We often use the slow cooker during the winter for its convenience and the ability to quickly cook comforting recipes. Of course, in our house, we love cooking slow cooker recipes with leeks 😉.

What’s most fun about slow-cooker recipes?

  1. A very short preparation time
  2. A device that does virtually all the work for us
  3. Tasty, comforting recipes that work every time

Imagine you at the chalet preparing dinner in just a few minutes. While you’re skiing or snowboarding, your dinner will be cooking to perfection all day long! It’s almost heaven 😉.

To help you make the most of your day and have a comforting dish on your return, here are our 5 easy slow-cooker recipes featuring our fabulous Quebec leeks!

Slow-cooked beer-braised beef with leeks

We start this top 5 slow cooker recipes with a tasty, tender and juicy beer-braised beef 🤤. You can't go wrong with beef, bacon and leeks cooking for 8 hours in a creamy beer, Dijon mustard and cream cheese sauce.

After the 20-minute preparation time for the vegetables and chicken, you only have to wait for the slow cooker to work its magic. You can accompany this slow-cooker stew with leek mashed potatoes, caramelized cauliflower purée or pilaf rice. We suggest buying family-size chicken breasts to save money and cook several recipes with similar ingredients. You can use them for our following slow-cooker recipe.
