There are few things that feel as comforting as coming home to the smell of your favorite meal simmering in the kitchen.
And while leading a busy life might mean that you sometimes have to cut corners when it comes to mealtimes, you never have to sacrifice quality if you have the right tools, like a slow cooker (and if you don’t have one, no worries; we recommend our fav choices below).
But the truth is, when leading a low-carb lifestyle, it can be hard to find recipes that are truly low carb. And what’s even more difficult is finding ones that actually taste good. (Except for pot roast, am I right?)

Keto Slow Cooker Tips
Did you find some new recipes to make? A slow cooker can be a fantastic tool, especially when you’re eating low carb. If you make one of them and love it, let us know in the Thinlicious Facebook Community. We’d love to hear what you’re making (and we might even add more ideas to this list).
As easy as the slow cooker is to use, here are some tips that will help you get the most out of it, especially when you eat low carb.
This first tip will save you so much time and energy the rest of the week. Use your slow cooker to make enough food for other meals. Then, save them in individual food storage containers in the refrigerator.
Next, save yourself time cleaning up after and use disposable slow cooker liners. Then, all you have to do is lift the liner out, and the rest of it is easy to wash. No more scrubbing stuck-on sauce or bits!
Automate Your Cooking
Finally, splurge on a programmable slow cooker. This way, you can set it and then it will automatically switch to a lower “keep warm” temperature, preventing your meal from overcooking.
In fact, if you invest in a programmable smart cooker—like the Instant Pot Pro—you can even control it wirelessly from an app on your phone.
It’s pretty incredible how much easier it is to cook with some of the smart kitchen gadgets they are making!
Do you still have questions about using your slow cooker on the keto diet? Below are some FAQs people ask, but please leave your questions in the comments or ask them in the Thinlicious Facebook Community.
Yes, the slow cooker is a fantastic tool you can use to make low-carb food. Make some of the recipes above or create your own. It’s a wonderful way to make a large amount of meat that you can eat throughout the week.
A slow cooker is just a tool, and you can use it to make really nourishing and healthy recipes. The best thing about the slow cooker is that it cooks food at a low temperature, so the meat becomes nice and tender, and the herbs infuse into the meat.
This depends on how much food you want to cook. A 5-6 quart slow cooker will hold most beef roasts and feeds about 3-5 people. Any smaller will be good if you are cooking just for yourself.
There you have it—the 16 keto slow cooker meals that we bet will start showing up in your weekly meal plan this winter. There’s nothing like a hot dinner ready for you when you get home!
