5 Day Aldi Slow Cooker Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

It’s that time of year when I pull out the slow cooker and I’ve combined my love of all things Aldi with my favorite slow cooker recipes to bring you this 5 Day Aldi slow cooker meal plan.

These meals are all under $10 and will feed a family of 4 with leftovers. These are all kid-friendly dinners that your family will gobble up! These slow cooker meals are perfect so summer nights when you don’t want to cook on the stove top or cold winter evenings when you’re looking for a hearty meal.

If you’re looking for some more Aldi meal plans that aren’t slow cooker specific, I have a ton here.

This meal is so simple you don’t even need a recipe. You can find already seasoned BBQ Pork Shoulder and drop it in your crockpot on low for 8 hours (or high for 4). Add a little chicken broth or water so it doesn’t burn. Serve on tasty brioche buns or for a more frugal meal you can buy hamburger rolls for only $.89! Get fancy and add coleslaw for $1.65 and make your own coleslaw dressing!

Meal #3 – Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

This recipe is a perfect meal for a cold winter night. The recipe calls for rotisserie chicken which my Aldi doesn’t sell (whomp whomp). Instead, I use shredded chicken breasts. Every few months I prepare this basic shredded chicken breasts and have it on hand in the freezer for meals like this.

4 ingredient crockpot lasgna
  • Ground Beef – $3.75

Crockpot lasagna is a great way to get that tasty baked flavor without heating up the oven for hours! With just 4 ingredients, this is a frugal and tasty slow cooker meal everyone will enjoy! Save a couple dollars and buy a block of mozzarella for $1.89 instead of the pre-shredded cheese. But sometimes the extra dollar is worth the time!
