I created this slow cooker recipe using convenience products to save time chopping vegetables and browning beef. Apple cider and cinnamon are the unique additions that give a down-home flavor to this oh-so-easy and economical stew. It also makes a rich, flavorful potluck dish for holiday gatherings or on busy school nights. —Margaret Wilson, Sun City, California

A boneless beef roast simmers for hours in a slightly sweet sauce before it's shredded and tucked into rolls to make hearty sandwiches. “This is a family favorite,” notes Jennifer Bauer of Lansing, Michigan, who shared the recipe.
“I love fajitas like they serve in Mexican restaurants, but when I prepared them at home, the meat was always chewy,” explains Katie Urso of Seneca, Illinois. “Then I tried this recipe in my slow cooker, and my husband and I savored every last bite. Fresh cilantro gives these fajitas the extra punch that makes them taste truly authentic.”
This recipe is perfect for my husband, who is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy. The peppery, fork-tender roast combined with the rich gravy creates a tasty centerpiece for any meal. —Rita Clark, Monument, Colorado
“I got the recipe for this sauce in a recipe exchange and wish I could credit the person who gave it to me,” says Meg Fisher of Marietta, Georgia. “My children love it! I added mushrooms, but if you'd like it even chunkier, add some bell pepper and other veggies, too.”
