11 Easy Delicious Keto Slow Cooker Recipes
What better way to be able to have the best of both worlds – keto and convenience – than with keto slow cooker recipes! These delicious meals are easy, have simple ingredient lists, and best of all – they’ll all fit your low carb lifestyle.
Cooking during the week after a long day can often become tiresome. Whether you’re going to the office or job site daily from 9-5, or you’re taking care of kids at home (props to all you moms out there) – it’s easy to become tired and lose the motivation to get that meal on that table at the end of the day. Of course, without proper planning, that sometimes leads to non-keto temptations if you aren’t careful.
My advice is to always keep some ingredients on hand from this keto recipe slow cooker list. Most of these slower cooker recipes are insanely quick one-pot meals – you literally dump everything in then off to work you go. By the time you come back you are left with a meal that tastes like you spent hours cooking without having a wrench thrown in your ketosis process because you are simply tired or don’t really feel like cooking.
11 Easy Delicious Keto Slow Cooker Recipes
1. Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Chili from The Fit Cookie
If you are tired of finding chili recipes with beans in them – an obvious no-no on the keto diet – then this one is for you! Sarah has found a way to make this chili delicious with only 7 carbs per serving. It’s also gluten-free and dairy free.
2. Best Keto Beef Stew from The Keto Queens
I don’t know about you, but we always have people over so I’m constantly looking for meals that are cheap and that can feed a crowd. This beef stew is awesome for the keto lifestyle as well as making sure everyone is full! Plus, Lara over at The Keto Queens is an RD – so she knows her stuff about keto-friendly meals.
3. Slow Cooker Meatloaf from My Gorgeous Recipes
I love meatloaf but hate the time it takes to make. Daniela has changed it up and turned traditional meatloaf slow-cooker-friendly! How easy is that? Plus, it’s a great low carb recipe with only 4 carbs per serving. If you need a couple of side dishes to go along with this, try some roasted Brussel sprouts or a side salad with leafy greens and crumbled bacon.
4. Slow Cooker Beef Chili with Bacon from Gluten Free Homestead
If you’re searching for comfort food for a cold, winter day – this is it. This hearty beef stew is great in the winter months or feeding a crowd of people. Your carb-loving pals won’t even know that its keto! Let’s not forget that the prep time is only 20 minutes. And for an extra bang of flavor top your slow cooker chili with some cheese or jalapeno peppers.
5. Slow Cooker Chocolate Chicken Mole from A Girl Worth Saving
Looking for an authentic Mexican dish? Be sure to try this one out! It has a slightly smoky flavor with those classic slight notes of cocoa. This recipe is keto, paleo, and Whole 30 friendly. Top it with lots of avocado and cilantro – both for flavor, and because the avocado helps boost the healthy fat content of this dish!
6. Crock Pot Pork Ribs with Killer BBQ Sauce from Beauty and the Foodie
Talk about comfort food – I cannot think of a better recipe than ribs with BBQ sauce. Some may think this is a no go after going keto, but rips are naturally high in fat to help keep you in ketosis – so as long as you make them with a non-sugary BBQ sauce, they can become a go-to meal. Plus, this would be amazing for a summer cookout or a family get together without all the clean-up. Try pairing this with sautéed zucchini or a garden salad.
7. Slow Cooker Turkey Marsala with Cooking Wine from Plating Pixels
After the holidays, my wife is always obsessed with purchasing the most ridiculous clearance turkeys. She’ll come home and tell me she got this giant 20 pound bird for about $1.60. 😉 If you’ve got some fresh turkey lying around, this slow cooker turkey marsala is a great meal to make with the breasts. Plus, it’s a nice meal choice if you are in charge of the cooking but the rest of your family isn’t keto – they will never think that this family loving dish is low carb.
8. Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore from Joy Filled Eats
Let’s talk about how amazing this Italian dish is! Not only is it low carb, but this chicken cacciatore is also gluten, grain, and dairy free. This slow cooker favorite takes less than 10 minutes to prep. It’s great as-is, but also tastes great over a small portion of zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash. Because it’s mainly protein, you can add some extra fat in by adding some cheese (if you’re not dairy free), crumbling bacon on top (yummmm), or pairing it with a side of sliced avocado.
9. Slow Cooker Garlic Chipotle Lime Chicken from Beauty and the Foodie
This amazing chipotle chicken dish has only 1 carb and tastes amazing. It’s pictured with white rice, but obviously you’ll want to skip that. A keto friendly option would be cheesy cauliflower rice or prosciutto wrapped asparagus…YUM!
10. Slow Cooker Keto Taco Soup from Whole Lotta Yum
This slow cooker keto recipe is a favorite of mine. I know when you think of soup you typically think of cold winter days, but not anymore. This slow cooker taco soup combines the comfort of tacos but with minimal prep and can be eaten year-round! Your budget will love you when you add this to your weekly shopping list, and it’s awesome for lunch meal prep. Before serving, feel free to top it off with lots of sour cream, avocado, cheese, cilantro, or jalapenos!
11. Slow Cooker Pork Curry from Low Carb Yum
Not only will you love the curry flavors (that’s totally my wife’s comfort food), but this dish is so hearty and filling. And between the pork belly slab and coconut cream, you’re getting a ton of fat to fuel you in this slow cooker keto recipe.
