1. Hearty Passover Chili in the Slow Cooker by Nechama Norman

This delicious and warming beef chili is the perfect supper to come home to after a chol hamoed outing. Make it lighter with half ground beef and half ground chicken.

2. Slow Cooker Yapchick by Chayie Schlisselfeld

Shortly after we moved into our house, my good friend and neighbor Rivky Z. sent us over some of this delicious dish. I was surprised to learn that it didn’t have any eggs or oil. It was an instant hit in my family, and I save it for special occasions. During the year, I add a loaf of Meal Mart Kishka, and after a few hours of cooking, when it’s soft, I use a fork to crumble the kishka and blend it into this dish. For Pesach, I didn’t want to create a kishka just for a Chol Hamoed supper, so I decided to take the flavors of the kishka and add it into the dish. Put it up in the morning, go out for a Chol Hamoed trip, come home to a delicious-smelling, hot supper waiting for you.

3. Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala by Julie Hauser

This is as good as gourmet. It’s a good thing it doesn’t take long to make, so you don’t have that feeling of All that work, and it’s gone so fast! Some things can be easy in, easy out.

4. Slow Cooker Zucchini Soup by Julie Hauser

This is an adaptation from my neighbor Bayla Landsman’s Zucchini Garlic Soup recipe in the cookbook From Our Table to Yours, a project of Yeshivas Darchei Torah in Southfield, Michigan. My family loves the garlicky flavor of the soup. We also like it a bit thicker, so I use less water than the original recipe uses. The original recipe also calls for a turnip or parsnip, which you could try instead of potatoes. No oil is added (unless you choose the sautéed onion cubes or alternative) at all. Pure smoothness and sweetness come from the veggies. 

5. Turkey Leg Pot Roast by Sara and Yossi Goldstein

There’s nothing quite like coming home on a winter day at four o’clock when the sun has almost set and the smell of dinner is wafting through the house. These braised turkey legs will deliver just that. Put them up in the morning and forget about them!

6. Softest Chicken Ever by Brynie Greisman

This recipe starts by marinating the chicken overnight to infuse it with awesome taste in every bite. Cooking it in a Crock-Pot results in chicken that literally falls off the bone. You’re going to love it!

7. Saucy Meatballs and Cabbage by Brynie Greisman

This stuffed cabbage is classic, traditional, and tastes very much like my Bubby’s, a”h. These meatballs incorporate the cabbage as part of the meatball mixture. They come out really soft and juicy. Everyone’s fave!

8. Before and After Chicken Legs by Julie Hauser

Really easy and really delicious, make these drumsticks to ensure everyone gets a “polke.”

9. Minute Steaks and Red Potatoes by Julie Hauser

This steak and potatoes revamp can be used as a main dish for a small crowd or even as an appetizer over lettuce salad (without the potatoes), with a little of the sauce.

10. Pepper Steak by Julie Hauser

This is another recipe inspired by the Yeshivas Darchei Torah cookbook. The original recipe, by Zipporah Heinemann, calls for soy sauce and flour, both no-no’s for Pesach, so I adjusted. Pepper steak shrinks when it cooks, so it’s easy to make a lot of it in a crockpot. It’s a great supper choice for after a Chol Hamoed outing. Pair it with sweet potato discs or a fresh lettuce salad and/or soup and you’re set!
