14 Jewish Crockpot Recipes to Warm Up with This Winter

Slow cookers are ideal for Shabbat.

It’s cool outside, which means it’s time to break out the cozy sweaters and dust off your slow cooker.

Slow cookers are a working person’s best friend for fast, easy and delish weeknight dinners. They are also ideal for Shabbat! Throw everything in Friday morning, and by the evening, dinner is all ready. Or, prep your ingredients Friday afternoon, and you’ll have a comforting, Shabbat lunch all set and ready.

In fact, did you know that the invention of the crockpot was inspired by the Jewish Shabbat slow-cooked stew called cholent. That’s right – cholent inspired the crockpot!

But don’t stop at cholent – here are 14 other delectable Jewish dishes you can make in your slow cooker.
