3 Easy Fall Crockpot Recipes

Whether you're cooking for the family or yourself, these wholesome and simple slow-cooker meals are perfect on a cold autumn night.

Crazy Easy Chili

It's easy to make incredible chili at home. Stop by Miesfeld's meat market and pick up a package or two of Town of Sheboygan Fire Department chili mix for a perfect blend of heat and flavor.



  1. Place all ingredients except the cornstarch and beef stock into a slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours with lid on.
  3. Whisk cornstarch into beef broth.
  4. Add all or part of the cornstarch mixture to thicken. Season to taste and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

Any Night Pot Roast

With this recipe, you can enjoy a traditional Sunday pot roast any night of the week. Check out Miesfeld's online meat market for delicious hard rolls to complete the meal.




  1. Mix the salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the mixture over the roast, covering all sides evenly. Allow roast to sit out approximately 30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Sear the roast on all sides, approximately 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Place roast on a platter and deglaze the pan with ¼ cup of the reserved beef broth. (Searing improves the overall flavor, but this step can be skipped if time is an issue.)
  5. Place vegetables in a 6-quart slow cooker. Position the roast on top of the vegetables. Add the beef broth (except the ¼ cup reserved for the gravy) and the deglazing liquid from the searing pan. Cook on low for 10 hours or until meat is tender.
  6. Transfer the roast and vegetables to a warm platter and tent with aluminum foil.
  7. For gravy, pour the remaining juices through a strainer to remove solids. Skim off excess fat. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and heat until boiling over medium-high heat.
  8. Whisk cornstarch into the remaining ¼ cup beef broth. Slowly whisk this slurry into the pan and return to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and serve.

Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Pork Chops

Dinner is stress-free when you buy meat online from Miesfeld's. Start with juicy bone-in pork chops to make this 4-step meal.



  1. Sprinkle chili powder, salt, and pepper evenly over pork chops.
  2. Spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce over the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Place a layer of pork chops over the sauce. Repeat until all the chops are in the cooker.
  4. Pour any remaining barbecue sauce over the top.
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours.

Too Busy to Cook Tonight?

Sometimes, even a simple crockpot meal is too much to handle. When your schedule is out of control, pop a pre-made Miesfeld's casserole into the oven and relax. Dinner will be ready soon.
