It might sound like an oxymoron to have “quick” slow cooker recipes, but if you’re familiar with using a slow cooker, you know that many recipes call for the food to be cooked for 6-8 hours. That’s fine if you will be home to put it in the slow cooker mid-morning, but what if you want to start it in the morning for lunch, or if you forget to start something until lunch time?

Here is a round up of 20 quick slow cooker recipes that will all be ready in 2-4 hours. Make sure to read each recipe carefully to see if it should be on high or low!
