Slow Cooker Clam Chowder

  • Cooking Time:

    3-4 hours
  • Servings:



4 - 6 (6 1/2 oz.) cans minced clams with juice
1/2 lb. salt pork or bacon, diced
1 Medium Yellow Onion, minced
1 Stalk of Celery, chopped
1 tsp. Minced Garlic
6 Medium Russet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1-inch cubes
1 c. Water
2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. White Pepper
4 c. Half & Half
3 T. cornstarch
chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Slow Cooker Clam Chowder is so good, and a favorite for my guests, as there is never a drop left!

  1. Drain clams and reserve juice. Cover clams and refrigerate.
  2. Saute pork in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Spoon most of the grease from the skillet.
  3. After one minute, add onions. Cook for 3 minutes and then add reserved juice from the clams.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes on medium-high heat.
  5. Pour cooked pork, onions and clam juice into a 6-quart slow cooker.
  6. Add all remaining ingredients, except clams, half & half, cornstarch, and parsley.
  7. Cover. Cook on High for 4 hours or until vegetables are tender.
  8. Stir corn starch into the half & half and add to the slow cooker .
  9. Stir in clams.
  10. Cover and cook for one additional hour on LOW.
  11. Garnish with parsley and serve with warm bread or in a bread bowl.

NOTE: If you prefer a creamier chowder, use a hand-held immersion blender to gently puree ingredients after cooking.

This looks wonderful and I’m definitely going to make this !!
But I have a ?…. When you cook the pork, do you cook it completely before adding the onions? It also says to wait a minute after removing grease? Is there a reason or am I reading it wrong?
I plan on using bacon…. I usually cook my bacon to a crisp?
