I was mislead by the reviews. They said many are recipes for the slow cooker. There was not a single recipe for a slow cooker. They are for your oven or a Instant Pot which is a pressure cooker! I enjoy using a Crockpot, or slow cooker, because I can put a meal in it first thing in the morning and go about a busy day knowing dinner will be ready in 6-8 hours! These cook in the Instant Pot in 20-30 minutes.
