Easy Dump and go recipes are my favorite way to make a quick slow cooker recipe and be out the door in a hurry.
Dump and Go Slow Cooker Recipes to get you out the door quicker in the morning! These easy recipes require no browning of the meat, so no extra dirty pot in the morning!
Should I brown the meat before adding to the slow cooker?
What’s great about dump and go slow cooker recipes is you don’t need to brown the meat. I don’t like to dirty an extra pan when I’m in a hurry.
It’s perfectly fine not to brown your meat in the slow cooker though you can if you have time and prefer to do it.
Some say it adds extra flavor to brown the meat first but I can’t taste a real difference. I make dinner almost every night of the week and it’s nice to have a few recipes that are more hands off.
Here are my favorite 25 Dump and Go Slow Cooker Recipes:

- Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini – The Magical Slow Cooker
- Seasoned Chicken, Green Beans and Potatoes – The Magical Slow Cooker
- Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese Soup – Real Housemoms
- Slow Cooker Tuscan Chicken Stew – Sweet Peas and Saffron
If you have no extra time in the morning to be chopping vegetables, I often chop the vegetables the night before and put in them a ziplock bag. If you want to cut potatoes ahead of time, I suggest putting them in the ziplock bag with water to cover so they won’t brown. Drain the water off in the morning.
