Save Money Using Your Slow Cooker Plus Recipe

One way I LOVE to save money during the summer is by using my crock pot! In fact, there are many benefits to using a crock pot year round, but I will save that for a later post.

The main reason I use my slow cooker is to save energy! Did you know it takes FAR less energy than using your oven? Which brings me to the second reason I use crock pots in the I don't heat up my kitchen, also saving energy!

I'm going to start sharing my frugal recipes, ideas and tips so you can see how easy it is to save money using a crock pot.

What I have in my crock pot today is my husband's favorite, Crock Pot Ham Steaks. He likes to eat it on a roll or bun like a sandwich.

Crock Pot Ham Steaks

4-Ham Steaks (I remove the bones, but not necessary)
1/4 c. Cola (yes, pop!)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard


Mix brown sugar & mustard, then add enough cola to make a paste. Rub paste all over the ham steaks and place in crock pot. Pour remaining cola over the top and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

No worries, the ham will provide lots of juices :)

Serve with mashed potatoes, rolls and a veggie.

Or, if you're like me and don't want to cook, serve on a bun with a salad :)
