Meal Prep that doesn't suck

Recently bought a slowcooker to cover my lunches and maybe dinners for the week, last week I did pulled barbecue chicken (not posting that pic bc it looked awful even if it tastes great), this week I'm doing Chocolate chicken mole. Any other ideas that are protein dense and preferably can be done in a slowcooker, post em below

Pic: the chocolate chicken mole in progress, smells great, will reply with finished product in the morning once it's done

    why would you use a slow cooker for meal prep? I thought the point of meal prep was autistically making food for the rest of the week when you have free time on the weekend, but slow cookers are basically pointless if you have the time to stir a pot on the stove every once in a while.

      that's just the modern social media spin on batch cooking, stupid fricking boxes with OCD day-of-the-week labels on them. some people just don't want to cook every day and make a bunch of shit for the freezer every now and then.

      The new meta with slow cookers is you pack your slow cooker ingredients into a bag, freeze em, then take it to work in a portable slow cooker and cook it by lunch.

    ever since my "main" ex left me, i picked up on the ability to cook very easily.

    after some time living by myself and having to cook for my brother/family on my off days, and now for my new girlfriend - i've concluded that people who haven't learned how to cook yet by the age of 25 are simply incompetent individuals that will continue to be incompetent for a very long time

    they cannot operate simple google searches which involve one reputable source of cooking information (insert Ethan Cchlhchclhchebowski, that gay Kenji Alt Lopez, Brian Lagerstrom, Andy Cooks, Protocooks, Adam Ragusea (butthole), Food Wishes, etc) - to understand simple concepts such as browning, deglazing, mincing, etc
    However, I am feeling benevolent.

    OP, you have my sincere support in that i hope you find a use for that thing - but make sure to understand that you bought that thing instead of a dutch oven, which is more versatile. The issue is that you can't sear in that thing - however you can make a large variety of soups in there.

    Look up soup recipes around the world, and just "transfer" that recipe to the slowcooker, which also has a warm option. It won't be the best food you ate, but you can dump your ingredients in there + water + some seared meat, keep it on warm, and just fish food out of there for the next couple of days, because it won't go off on the "warm" setting.
    The reason is that food, while kept above the "danger" zone temperatures, simply won't go off.

    Do what I did in 2019.
    Pick a stew recipe. Dump ingredients. Dump seared meat/fish. Cook an obnoxious amount of rice. Freeze rice in batches (learn something useful from chinoix every now and then).
    Cook.

    Come back, reheat rice in microwave, dump a ladle of your stew on top. Done.
    here - off the top of my head. Roasted squash soup. Roasted tomato soup. Sausage cassoulet. Sweet potato soupe + peanuts + ginger. Chestnut soup. Peruvian green chicken soup. Sauerkraut soup. Crockpot pho ga. Kimchi stew. google away. beef bourg.

      I have two dutch ovens and love them both, but I'm not going to leave my stove on overnight like I would a slowcooker

    Do a pork roast with some potatoes and carrots. Chili with beans is good too. You can serve that over rice.

    I cook rice once a week and pasta once a week, keep canned beans and flash frozen steamable veggies on hand. From there you usually have enough for a base to make something quick. Baked potatoes, I will cook and freeze. I don't really eat much fruit, but I keep some frozen fruit on hand and a few cans of peaches.

    One 3-4 pound pork shoulder.
    One can of tomatillos
    One can of Serrano chilies
    Salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders and cumin to taste (ie just throw in whatever spices you want)
    Blender the canned goods together and throw into crock with the shoulder and spices.
    Poor man's chili Verde, or you can shred and fry up for poor man's carnitas.
    When I owned my own home and had a crock it was used almost exclusively for this.
