Best Crockpot or Instant Pot Recipes For Fall

What would Fall be without comfort food? I hate to think of such a world. We use our crockpot and our Instant Pot all year long but it gets the most use during the fall and winter. We have collected a bunch of our favorite Fall Recipes for you to enjoy too.

Slow Cooker Applesauce

This slow cooker applesauce recipe from Skinny Taste is genuinely spectacular. It has such a bright flavor! T and I experimented with several different applesauce recipes and this was the clear winner. It’s also crazy simple. Every year the day after our annual trip to the Apple Orchard we come straight home and start a pot of this. It’s amazing.

Slow Cooker Chili

You can’t really do Fall right without good chili. A chili bar is a really fun way to host a football (or soccer in our case) party at your house or on your tailgate too. We have certainly tried our share of chili recipes but we do have a favorite and it comes from Jaclyn, who blogs over at Cooking Classy.

Slow Cooker Maple Pork Loin with Apples and Onions

We made this last Fall and we used Apple Cider instead of Apple Juice. It had just been pressed at the mill and let me tell you… This was crazy good. This recipe from Julie’s Eats and Treats includes Maple syrup, cinnamon, and bourbon mixed with apple cider and orange juice, and some garlic which delivers a sauce rich in the best fall flavors. Hello Harvest season! This recipe is certainly deserving of a spot in your dinner rotation. Try it!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

This pot roast recipe from Damn Delicious is exactly that! You’ll ooooh and aaaaahhh with every last bite! So tender and flavorful and easy!!! Just crazy good!

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes with Orange Sauce and Bacon

I used to think I didn’t like sweet potatoes. I was convinced of this as though it were a fact. But then one day someone made me a southern-style sweet potato casserole all topped with roasted marshmallows and sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon and I couldn’t resist. I gave them one more try. Since then, I have searched for really good sweet potato recipes and this one delivers. Add about a tsp of fresh, finely chopped ginger to the crockpot for an extra punch of flavor that works perfectly with the orange juice.

Instant Pot Beef Bourguignon

I love Beef Burgundy. I really, really love it. But it takes forever and then a little more to do it right. Well, it did until the Instant Pot! This recipe for Beef Bourguignon from Creme De La Crumb is spot on and absolutely spectacular!

Healthier Instant Pot Coq Au Vin

I wish that Tieghan from Half Baked Harvest was my neighbor! I love her cookbooks and her website! Honestly, I have never made a dish from one of her recipes that I didn’t love. Never. T is a huge fan of Coq au Vin and he introduced it to our kitchen last year. He did it the hard way though and it was a long labor of love but worth it in the end. We were both super excited to find out that Tieghan had worked her magic and replicated the dish so deliciously in an Instant Pot recipe. Yum!!!

Instant Pot Pesto Zuppa Toscana

So I have been making Toscana Soup at my house forever. It takes a long time. Tieghan’s recipe is super quick and oh so satisfying. Also, it’s a lot healthier than mine which uses an entire sheet pan of bacon. This is perfect for late Fall nights!

Instant Pot Spiced Apple Cider

This apple cider recipe from Gimme Some Oven is so FALL! I do alter it by preparing it using the orange zest only and removing the rind. I don’t care for the bitterness of the rind but that is a personal preference. This is perfect for cold nights and is extra warming when provided a kick of Rum.
