What should be in your Slow Cooker while your meat is on the grill
I don’t know about you but secretly I live for the side dishes that go alongside the grilled meats. I’ll take a tiny piece of steak or chicken and then fill my plate with lots of salads and sides. They are my favorite! I have lots of recipes that you can make for the 4th of July in your slow cooker to go alongside that grilled steak, chicken or hamburgers. You can prepare these dishes early in the day and then they’ll be ready for dinner.

What Slow Cooker Do You Use?
I use a 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.* I love this slow cooker. It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.

I too enjoy your recipes!! Don’t forget sweet or white potatoes on the crock pot for baked potato bar (lots of sides like chopped bacon n shredded cheese n chives n sour cream n butter etc) to go with your grilled steaks!
