Favorite crockpot recipes, recipes ONLY.

I'm gonna open this thread and post the actual recipes from the other thread with this name. Please don't use this one for comments but for recipes only.

Thanks,

MikeS.

From Brightcopperkettles;

I have chicken, potatoes, onions, carrots, celery sprinkled with salt, pepper, and herbes de Provence covered with a couple cans of cream of chicken and one can of cream of celery soup going in the crockpot right now, and it is smelling and looking mighty good. Not particularly healthful, probably, but sure smells good, and I was pressed for time.

From Uncle Vic;

My favorite is a box of Uncle Bens wild rice, 1/2 to 1 cup of white rice (both rices uncooked), poured into the bottom of the crockpot.. Add a few carrots, and put some raw chicken thighs or leg quarters on top.. Cover with a can of Cream of Shroom, can of Cream of chicken both mixed togethar with a 1/2 can of milk. Pour it over the mix and let it go 6 to 8 hours (depending on the size of the bird)... Not the most healthy, but sure tastes good... Oh ya, you can dice up an onion and toss over the rice and carrots...

From Dreamzpainter;

I like to take a cheap cut of beef and simmer in stock until it falls apart, adding more onions as they cook away, finally a jarred tomato sauce and a couple more hours simmering. Served over rice or pasta

2 from jvsmon;

I mostly use mine for beef stew (beef, baby carrots, frozen peas and green beans, lots of pepper, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, 2 cans cream of mushroom, an envelope or two of onion soup mix, and several shakes of whatever spices I have on hand at the time). I don't usually use potatoes because I also make a batch of mashed potatoes and the family puts the stew over them.

But another favorite is boneless chicken breasts, cream of chicken soup, 2 envelopes of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix, and a block (maybe 2, can't quite remember) of cream cheese. It cooks quickly for a crock pot (couple of hours) since the chicken is boneless. Serve over white rice. Mmm-mmm.

From 6star;

On the subject of the thread, I always use the crockpot to make pulled pork for sandwiches from rib tips and other bony cuts.

Hey 6star, maybe you could "flesh' out this receipe some???

2 from BunnySlippers;

Here is my family's favorite and the easiest I can imagine. Very tasty and oh so tender.

Crockpot BBQ Chicken

1 Whole Chicken, washed and dried but not cut up
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's)

Place Chicken in Crockpot. Pour BBQ sauce over chicken.
Cook on Low 8-10 hours.

Crockpot Beef and Gravy

1 lg. onion, sliced
2 lbs. Beef cubes
1 can Cream of Tomato Soup
1 can Cream of Celery Soup
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Place onions in Crockpot, then beef cubes. Add soups and grind black pepper over all. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours.

Great served over Noodles, Rice or Mashed potatoes.

To be continued...

    From halfday;

    Pork chops with cream of mushroom soup. I add some onion and some fresh mushrooms. Makes a great gravy for mashed spuds. Sauerkraut and pork too!

    From V960;

    I am an avid hunter and have found the crock pot to be a great friend of hunter w/ a mixed bag. Rabbits, dove,and squirrel all end up in the bottom of the pot w/ a bit of BBQ sauce and bacon placed on top. Dash of white wine and put on low for six to eight hours. Serve over white rice and enjoy.

    From mrf326;

    Crock Pot Roast

    Put Sliced Onions, Cracked Black Pepper, Crushed Garlic (and whatever other spices you like) plus 1 cup of water in the bottom of the Pot.
    Throw in 2-3 lbs. Pot Roast with a Bay Leaf on top.
    Set on low in the A.M. Have a nice day and when you return Pot Roast that falls apart. Throw in some Mashed Potatos or Egg Noodles. Easy and YUM!

    From greymo;

    I really do not have a recipe but this is what I do; it is very forgiving so that you can change spices to suit your taste.

    I fill the crockpot with homemade applesauce (sweetened and ready to eat) and then stir in 2 cups sugar, a couple ot Tablespoons of cinnamon, and 1 to 2 tsp. cloves (I sort of "eyeball it".) Cover, and cook on low 12 hours or whatever. When it is thick enough and dark enough to suit your taste, it is finished. Fill your sterilized jars and seal and it is ready to store. I always fill a large jar and put it in the fridge for eating right away. It keeps very well.

    You can always cheat a little and buy one of those huge cans of applesauce (Sams, Cosco's and some supermarkets have them) and start with that instead of homemade sauce. No one will ever know the difference.

    From MandalayVA;

    For pot roast, I put in a chuck roast and baby carrots, then pour a can of Progresso French onion soup over the whole thing and cook on low for at least eight hours. I also like whole chickens seasoned with just salt and pepper--six hours is enough so you have a juicy breast and it's not falling apart. I chill the liquid left over, skim off the fat the next day, and it's GREAT broth--I freeze it and use it for soup bases and cooking.

    From Scorereader;

    seeing how I have a job and can't stand over a stove top all day. I like to use my crock pot for homemade tomato sauce, ya know - when you have the meatballs and sausage simmering in it for a few hours. works like a charm.

    From PapaJoe8;

    Neat! Everything sounds yummy!! Ok, here is one of mine. Slice 2 large onions cross ways so big pedels can be peeled off. Place the larger pedels in the bottom of the pot. Now add a serloin roast, season with garlic and whatever other seasonings you like. Cavenders greek seasoning is my fav but I have used lots of others. Then cover the top with sliced jalapeno that has had the seeds rinsed out. I've used pickled and fresh, and like either. Top with the rest of the onion. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. Fire up the crock and when the roast is not quite done slice it into large chunks and let it cook in the juice till it is done. I serve it with pleanty of juice over a baked potato or rice. It's kinda spicy but good!

    From shortchef;

    do about five pounds of sirloin tip; first I brown it and put it in the crock pot, add a big chopped onion, three minced cloves of garlic, a cup of dry sherry, some salt and pepper (however much you like), and some of my own beef stock--a cup or so. If I don't have any beef stock I use two tablespoons of the beef paste from a jar. Cook it all day until it falls apart, take it out and shred it; refrigerate the juices and take off the fat, then moisten the shredded meat with that. We just pile this on the plate and eat it with mashed potatoes. A good winter comfort food.

    From Jimeats;

    I bought one of those small cheap one from Walgreens for unde $10 bucks. I use it every day for oatmeal {steel cut} fix it at night and it's ready in the morning. Great investment. Chow Jim

    From Adjudicator;

    tried this one time. Used same as a base recipe & added other ingredients, etc. I thought it was pretty good:

    Italian Beef (Crock-Pot)

    1 3-5 lb boneless rump or sirloin roast
    2 Tbs dried oregano
    2 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
    1-1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
    1 (10-oz) can beef broth
    1 (12-oz) can of beer
    1/2 jar pepperoncini peppers, with 1/2 of the juice in the jar

    Put roast in crock-pot.
    Pour in liquid and peppers, top with dried seasonings.
    Cook on high for about 6 hours.
    Remove and slice or shred as desired.
    Return to crock pot with liquid and cook for 1-2 hours more
    Serve with hard rolls, soaked in lots of the juice.

    From Sundancer7;

    Folks, I know this will not excite those of you who are culinary gifted but this worked for me real well.

    I bought a chuck roast with no bone and some fat, some Yukon gold potatoes, small onions, carrots, garlic, celery and some beef stew spices.

    I added a little water to the crock pot which just about covered the roast and I cooked it on low in the crock pot for eight hours.

    I made a cast iron skillet full of Tennessee fried cornbread. I got the skillet very hot (450F) and I sprinkled some cornmeal in the bottom and then I added the batter which contained some Mexican corn, diced jalapeno, bell peppers and onions.

    I let the cornbread bake at 450F for about 50 minutes. Great thick crust and I timed it so it would be ready when the beef stew was completely cooked and falling apart tender without being overdone.

    I sliced the cornbread and split it and added some lightly salted real butter.

    From unalaskawoman;

    I cook a huge batch of onions, shallots, and garlic, for about 24 hours on low, until nice and carmelized, and freeze them in small batches to add to recipes as needed in the future

    And still more to come.

    From enginecaptain;

    My favorite crock pot recipe is my cocktail meatballs. I make up a batch of my regular Italian style meatballs, but half the size of a golf ball. I quickly brown them off then dump them in the crock with an extra large sized bottle of grape jelly and one of Russian dressing. Cook on low all day stirring once or twice, then serve over rice or take them to a party and watch them be the first thing to disappear on the serving line.

    From Poopy;

    put a can of saurkraut in the bottom and lay brautwurst on top. Then I just barely cover with beer. I usually use Miller Genuine Draft or Pabst Blue Ribbon. I also add some onion salt and pepper and cook on low for about 8 hours. YUMMMMMMMY

    From improviser;

    Keep in mind, I'm a beginner. I went with a simple recipe and you can't get much simpler than this:

    Pepsi Chicken

    1 can of Pepsi or Coke
    1 envelope Lipton's Onion Soup mix.
    Chicken Breasts

    Place Breasts in crockpot. Mix Pepsi and soup mix together in bowl, pour over chicken. Cook on low 8 hours or 4 hours on high.

    Surprisingly tasty. Chicken was very tender. I brought a knife but didn't need it.

    From fhoran, who puts some very good advice in with the receipe...;

    My crockpot(s) are sometimes the only thing standing between my family and another night of takeout. Like a lot of us, I don't have time for a lot of cooking during the week. Throwing stuff in the crockpot and having a great meal when you get home from work is a wonderful thing(I have recently discovered that remembering to turn it on before leaving in the morning makes the food taste better - feel free to use that tip with your own family). A chuck or bottom round (trimmed of as much fat as possible - it will still be moist) with a couple of cans of mushroom soup and a package of onion soup cooked for 10 hours and served with mashed potatoes. What could be easier and even the food snobs in my family love it. Oh, and Bear Hit, you just solved my dilemna of what to have for dinner tonight! The Cuban Roast Beef looks like a winner! Thanks! Fred

    From cwjudyjr;

    Place a frozen pork loin in the crock with a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook on low, while away or at work, and come home to delicious BBQ Pulled Pork. It pulls apart easily. If the crock has an auto mode, 2 hours high - then auto goes to low for the remaining time, then this cooks faster.

    From Big Ugly Mich;

    My favorite slow cooker recipe is this:
    about 3 pound boneless roast. Beef, pork or chicken breasts all work fine.
    One 18 ounce bottle of whatever barbecue sauce is on sale.

    Pour both into a 6 quart cooker and put on low for eight hours.

    Pull the meat apart with two forks.

    Put the lid back on for another hour (DO NOT skip this step. The roasts aren't cooked through because you didn't add enough liquid when you first put them in the cooker).

    From The HotPepper.com;

    Beef short ribs slowly simmered in a sweet sauce with chilis and ginger.


    From TwoJays;

    Hungarian Goulash:

    From P. 81 of "Mable Hoffman's Crockery Cooking" - we usually double this recipe and freeze the leftovers for 4-5 future meals:

    1.5 Lbs stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1 Lg. onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed

    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/2 cup water
    2 TBSP tomato paste
    1-2 TBSP Hungarian paprika (not "hot")

    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 water
    1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

    Place meat in a slow cooker; cover w/ onion & garlic. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, water, tomato paste & paprika. Pour over meat mixture. Cover & cook on LOW 8-9 hours. Turn control to HIGH. In a small bowl, combine flour, water & sour cream/yogurt. Stir into meat mixture. Cook uncovered on HIGH 10 to 15 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve over cooked noodles or rice (we prefer it over white rice). Sprinkle w/ dill or poppy seeds (we don't do this).

    Note: I usually add a little more salt, and sometimes a bit of "Essence" or Cajun seasoning, just to give it a little kick.

    By now you know the drill...

    RE: Favorite crockpot recipes, recipes ONLY. 2006/11/11 00:32:46 (permalink)
    From foodbme;

    This one is a little more complicated but good. Use a FRESH Ham, not a cured or smoked ham, small enough to fit your pot. You can get your butcher to cut the hock off so you can get a bigger ham. Save the hock for future use. Fire up your grill and use wood chips to smoke it and smoke/cook it low & slow over indirect heat until it gets to an internal temp of 100 degrees. Transfer to your crock pot. Add some smoked flavor BBQ Sauce and cook it for 6-8 hours depending on size until it gets to the "pulley meat". stage. Remove and shread it. Makes a great BBQ Samich

    From Big Ugly Mich;

    CROCK POT APPLE BUTTER
    7 cups applesauce, unsweetened (we northerners get to make our own )
    2 cups apple cider
    1 1/2 cups honey
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. ground cloves
    1/2 tsp. allspice

    In a crockpot, mix all ingredients. Cover and cook on low heat for 14 to 15 hours, or until the mixture is deep brown. Pack while hot into 4 hot pint jars. Process in hot-water bath for 10 minutes, counting the time after the jars have been immersed and the water comes again to a rolling boil. Makes 4 pints.

    From improviser;

    Like I said before, Sundays are crockpot days. This past Sunday I made Swedish Meatballs (although I'm sure actual Swedish meatballs don't involve two cans of Campbells soups.)

    Frozen meatballs (one day I'll learn to make my own)
    1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
    1 can of Golden Mushroom Soup
    1 enevelope brown gravy mix
    1 can of beef broth

    Cook on high for three hours. Not bad. Our dog especially enjoyed the leftover gravy.

    From brlawson;

    Take a 2-3 pound shoulder beef roast, salt & pepper then brown on all sides in a skillet before putting in the crock pot--not really necessary, but it you get the good carmelization thing going. A boneless chuck roast would probably work as well.

    Add a large onion sliced and broken into rings--

    Follwed by a can of, yes, cream of mushroom soup.

    Cook for about 8 hours. Mashed potatoes are an absolute necessity, because the onions and mushroom soup make a killer gravy.

    From fishmonger, I snipped off a bit to get to the receipe.;

    kraut along with a couple of sliced onions, 2 sliced apples, 3 or 4 pounds of country style pork ribs, topped with the sauerkraut, a little cider, beef broth, caraway seeds and brown sugar. After 8 hours, we and company enjoyed this with mashed potatoes, What a joy!

    From ynottryme;

    my favorite is : 4 ham hocks, 2 cans of chicken broth, add water until the pot is 3/4 full, 1 pkg. of good seasons italian seasonings, 1 chopped onion, and 4 hrs in , I add a bag of frozen lima beans. 4 or 5 hrs later, yum yum. With a loaf of fresh Italian bread and butter, it makes a wonderful meal,especially on a cold day.

    From packerwmn;

    Since there are only 2 of us at home, I have to be creative with the crock pot so we don't have to eat the same thing for a week. What I like to do is start with a chuck roast and add simple seasonings - onion soup mix or vidalia onion dressing, some garlic, or even just a brown/beef gravy mix. I don't usually add more than 1/3c. liquid, sometime no liquid at all if I'm using the onion dressing. Cook until fork tender. Serve the first night as a beef and gravy dinner with potatoes. Then I divide the leftovers into 2 portions. To one I will add taco seasoning and have the best soft shell tacos you've ever had. The other half may get BBQ sauce for sandwiches or just added to rice or noodles with more gravy. This way we get a variety of meals out of one roast. Convenient and delicious!

    From sneetch;

    there's nothing like a big crockpot of chili-mac...
    1 1/2 lbs. ground meat
    2 large onions (less if you don't love them like i do)
    saute the above until both are cooked through, drain well and add to crockpot with:
    1 can corn, drained
    1 large can tomato sauce
    1 can rotel tomatoes and green chilies
    1 can red kidney beans, half-drained (the beany goop adds to the flavor )
    chili powder to taste (about 2 tblspns)
    cumin (about 1 - 2 tspns)
    dash of cinnamon
    sliced fresh jalapenos, if you like a little fire(or whole dried red chilis if you like alot!)
    cook on high for 3-4 hours, 6-8 on low...when chili is done, cook up a box of mac n' cheese (the "deluxe" kind with the cheese sauce in foil pouch)...mix the finished mac n' cheese in another very large pot with the chili (it all won't fit unless you've got a crockpot that's bigger than 5 quarts!)...wait 5 minutes to give the noodles a chance to absorb some of the chili flavor, and devour...

    From annpeeples;

    One large onion,sliced and put on the bottom of the crockpot.Brown a small pork rosat,seasoned with salt and pepper.Place on top of onions.1 tbsp chopped garlic,1tbsp soy sauce,3/4 cup water.Turn on high and cook 8 hours.I then use the reserved juice and mix it with a package of Knorr pork gravy mix-pour over all.Truly wonderful and tender!

    From Scarlett;

    Pork Roast

    Small whole sweet potatoes
    One 3-pound pork roast
    1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce (use the jelly if you don't like the seeds from the cranberries).
    1 can (5.5 ounces) apricot nectar
    1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped dried apricots
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

    Place the potatoes in a 3 1/2-quart (or larger) slow cooker, then place the roast over the potatoes. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well and pour over the roast. Cover and cook on the low setting for 5 to 6 hours. (check temp with meat thermomete) Remove the roast to a cutting board and thinly slice. Serve with the potatoes and sauce/gravy

    I use a cooking bag made for slow cookers. I drain of the liquid into a sauce pan and while the roast is resting reduce and thicken the gravy.

    From tarragon;

    Made a beef stew in my crock pot last night (Sunday):

    Package of stew beef, which I cut into smaller pieces, seasoned with the salt-free lemon pepper and garlic/herb seasonings, then dredged in flour (actually, in one of those ziplock bags.

    Then I sauteed the beef cubes, along with a small chopped onion in olive oil, in the crock pot on the stove--my crock pot has a pot and a base, and you can cook in the pot on the stove. As the beef and onion were browning, I added a splash of sherry as well as a few splashes of worcestershire sauce.

    After the meat and onion were browned sufficiently, I set the pot into the crock pot base, added a cup of beef broth (low sodium of course!), and set the pot to medium heat.

    After the beef had been cooking for about 4 hours, I added in 2-3 sliced carrots, 3 chopped potatoes and another onion, chopped. The stew continued to cook for another couple of hours.

    When it was ready, I served it over rice. Delicious, and just right for this time of year when the temps turn cooler!

    From Nola56;

    I found the most incredible pot roast recipe on the net a couple of months ago. I have made it several times and told friends who have tried it & loved it as well. And it couldn't be easier.

    chuck roast
    1 envelope Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix
    1 envelope McCormick's Brown Gravy Mix
    1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
    1/2 cup water
    black pepper to taste

    Empty dry mixes in a ziplock bag & shake together well. Pepper the meat, place in slow cooker, sprinkle with the dry seasonings & add the water to the bottom of the crock. (Don't pour over top of meat.) Cook on slow for 7 to 10 hours until the meat falls apart...depends on the size of the roast.

    This makes a good bit of gravy that goes well potatoes or noodles. And though I rarely like re-heated beef, this is delicious leftover as well.

    From Brad_Olson;

    Crock-potting is my favorite way to cook corned beef. I usually take a prepackaged flat, put it, its juice, and the seasonings into the crock, fill with water up to just below the rim, and cook on low for 9-11 hours. Makes the house smell great and is one of my favorite midweek meals in winter.

    And another hit from improviser; Thanks Imp

    Yesterday was Crockpot Sunday at improviser's house. I made sweet and spicy meatballs.

    Meatballs
    1 bottle of chili sauce
    1 bottle of cocktail sauce
    1 (12 oz) jar currant jelly
    1 (12 oz) jar grape jelly

    Cook on low for 6 hours or so. Turned out pretty good. They weren't really spicy but they were tasty. I think you could probably reduce the amount of grape jelly to cut down on the sweetness. And I was thinking of adding some sriracha (or however you spell that) hot sauce to the mix. That would kick up the hotness, methinks

    From BillB.;

    Fill a crock pot with meaty beef short ribs and a large onion, chunked. Pour in a couple of bottles of your favorite beer and let simmer on low for eight hours. Cook potatoes and carrots in a separate pot so you can squeeze in the maximum amount of short ribs...

    From Relentless;

    We use a crockpot quite a bit, especially during the colder months & have a couple of favorites. The first...Pot Roast is quite similar to one posted earlier.

    Take a 2-3 lb chuck roast & brown in a skillet with a little oil. Slice a large onion and place half of the slices under the roast and half on top. Add two cans of beef broth, a couple of cloves of garlic and a bay leaf. Cook on low all day. When you get home remove the meat from the pot & thicken the liquid with a little cornstarch if needed. Remove fat, bone & gristle from the meat and return to pot. Microwave half a bag of baby carrots & throw them in the pot along with the meat. Serve with mashed potatoes, green beans or whatever suits you. I guarantee this will stand up to anybody's pot roast. Prep time is less than 15 minutes.

    Pork & Kraut- Crockpots were made for this! I use spareribs or pork chops, or a mixture of both. Start with a layer of kraut, then pork till the pot is about 3/4 full. Sprinkle a few carroway seeds in as you go along. Cook on low all day. This is just a killer meal...one of my all time favorites. However, the after effects of the kraut are killer too

    Both of these beg for a big slab of skillet cornbread slathered in butter. Do we have a cornbread thread here?

    From abe_froeman;

    I just used this recipe on Monday:
    http://allrecipes.com/recipe/maries-easy-slow-cooker-pot-roast/detail.aspx

    I also added fresh mushrooms and browned the steak in some red wine (which I added to the crock pot instead of the water.) It was very good.

    A friend from my old job gave me her recipe for BBQ pork roast in the slow cooker, but I have misplaced it. From what I remember, it was a 2-4 lb pork roast, 1 cup of ketchup, 1 can of beer (use cheap stuff, and not dark), a cup or so of BBQ sauce (I used a mixture of Roadhouse original, Roadhouse Hot and whichever variety of Gates I had in the house). Add salt and pepper, too. Let it cook for 6-8 hours. Dump all the liquid out and use 2 forks to shred up the pork. Then add some more BBQ sauce in, to taste. Serve on buns. It was sooooo good.

    From 6star;

    On the subject of the thread, I always use the crockpot to make pulled pork for sandwiches from rib tips and other bony cuts.

    Hey 6star, maybe you could "flesh' out this receipe some???


    from my posting on “what goes into a crock pot??????” ( http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4790 ):

    Although I am sure many of you bar-b-que pros will be screaming bloody murder, I do what I consider to be a delicious pulled pork for sandwiches in my crock pot. I put in any bony cut of pork, the cheaper the better (rib tips have the best taste) and alternate the layers with sprinklings of onion flakes until I fill the crock pot. No liquid added (it draws its own juice). I cook on high for 8 to 10 hours, until you can easily pull the bones out of the meat with your fingers (but don't burn your fingers). At that point, I pull the meat apart with a couple of forks (and make sure there are no bone fragments left), turn the pot down to low, and pour in some bar-b-que sauce (the quantity depends on how much meat there is left and how strong a flavor you like). It then gets cooked for another hour (or longer if you like). At this point, extra you don't use right away can be refrigerated for several days, or frozen for a longer time.

    I do a brisket about the same as 6star except I just cook it on low 9 hrs. or so. If I'm in a hurry I might start it on high for a few hrs. I have a big oblong crock that will just barly hold a whole brisket. It takes some cooking for the lid to close sometimes. I use some Cavenders greek seasoning, SnP, garlic, onions, and a few jalapenos with the seeds rinsed. I take the brisket out when it's almost done and put the juice in a small container in the freezer. In about 30 minutes I take the grease off the top and put the juice back in the crock on high till it heast up. Then put the brisket back in. This is a bit of trouble but the juice from a brisket is usually real greasy and the dog likes the grease. I guess a trimed brisked would not be so greasy, but I think the ones cooked with the fat still on tast better.

    I take some when it's done and put in a small pot w/ BBQ sauce. This is not BBQ but it is brisket w/ BBQ sauce. Some of my crew likes it best right out of the crock, me included. This is about same as my serloin recipe above except fot the sauce and juice thing. Oh, and we always make some brisket tacos with some of it. Just put some brisket in a small pot with some salsa verde green sauce and cook it for a while. I use the stringy part of the brisket for the tacos. All this works for a pork roast also, even the tacos.

    I hope it's alright to say... nice job Mike!

    I enjoy a well marbeled chuck roast along with beef stew veggies, spices, lotsa onions and beef stock.

    About six hours on low produces a very tender roast and tasty veggies and gravy. Very good with Tennessee cornbread.a

    I don’t use my crockpot that often but this is one thing that I like made better in the crockpot than the oven. The cabbage seems to stay firmer.

    CROCKPOT STUFFED CABBAGE ROLLS

    12 large cabbage leaves
    1 beaten egg
    1/ 4 cup milk
    1/ 4 cup finely chopped onion
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1/ 4 tsp. pepper
    1 lb. lean ground beef
    1 cup cooked rice
    1 (8 oz,) can tomato sauce
    1 Tbs. brown sugar
    1 Tbs. lemon juice
    1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

    Immerse cabbage leaves in large kettle of boiling water for about 3 minutes or until limp; drain and set aside until cooled off. Chop about 1 cup of the extra cabbage into big pieces and put in the bottom of the crockpot.

    Combine egg, milk, onion, salt, pepper, beef and rice. Place about 1/ 4 cup meat mixture in center of each leaf; fold in sides and roll ends over meat. Place in crockpot. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over cabbage rolls. Cover and cook on low 7 to 9 hours.

    If you want more sauce, add another can of tomato sauce during the last hour of cooking. Makes 6 servings. Note: This is the basic recipe but there are many variations. Substitute 1/ 2 bulk sausage or ground pork for part of the ground meat. Add herbs to the meat mixture, etc.

    A tasty and easy crock pot recipe is to throw in come chicken and vegetables (potatoes, carrots, onions, etc.) with "berbere" which is a spice mix from Ethiopia. Sort of like a paprika flavoring but much more complex. Also works fine with beef, etc. This is a very exotic and different crock pot dish, but great!

    You can buy it in DC or other cities with Ethiopian population, but also on line:

    From PCC;

    Crock Pot Apple Butter

    I went to a "Homemaking in the Mountains" event by Extension Homemakers of Pike County, KY, and this recipe was being served with biscuits.

    10-12 lbs apples
    5 cups sugar
    2 tbsp. cinnamon
    1 tbsp. allspice
    1 tbsp. cloves
    1/4 cup water

    Peel, core and slice apples. Combine apples and water. Cook until tender. Mash through sieve (cooked apples should measure to be 8 cups). Mix the apples and other ingredients in a crock pot and cook on high 8-10 hours, stirring occasionally. Makes 5 pints.

    I got this from Kraft thru my email.
    I tried it tonight. Tasty but a little salty.
    I thought the idea of using the stuffing for dumplings was crazy at first, but IT WORKS!
    I think that is why it is too salty.
    I got about 14 dumplings out of the stuffing package.

    Slow-Cooked Chicken & Dumplings
    Prep Time: 15 min
    Total Time: 11 hr min
    Makes: 6 servings, about 1-3/4 cups each

    1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs
    2-1/2 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1-1/2 cups each chopped onions, celery and carrots
    2 cups frozen peas, thawed
    1/2 cup (1/2 of 8-oz. tub) PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread
    1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
    3/4 cup hot water
    2 eggs, lightly beaten

    COMBINE chicken, broth, onions, celery and carrots in slow cooker; cover with lid.
    COOK on LOW for 8 to 10 hours (or on HIGH for 3-1/2 hours).
    ADD peas and cream cheese spread; stir until well blended. Mix stuffing mix, water and eggs until well blended. Drop stuffing mixture, 2 heaping tablespoonfuls at a time, onto chicken mixture in slow cooker. Cook, covered, on HIGH 30 min. Gently turn over dumplings. Cook, covered, an additional 15 min.

    KRAFT KITCHENS TIPS
    Jazz It Up
    Stir in 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley just before serving.

    **my personal notes**
    I used chicken breast instead.
    My thoughts on the Chive/Cream Cheese mixture.
    You can probably get away with using the whole 8 oz. tub.
    I think one cup of peas is too many.
    I also had some leftover corn and cabbage, which I also added to it.

    I wish my camera were better!

    Yesterday I cooked corned beef brisket for New Year's Day. This time, I used the crock pot, and the corned beef came out fantastic! It was tender and juicy and the house smelled good too. It's pretty simple, you just put the brisket in the crock pot, fat side down, add about 1 cup of water (takes less water than if you cook on the top of the stove), add the packet of spices, put the lid on, and turn the crock pot to low. Let it cook for about 4-6 hours, then add some chopped onion, potatoes and carrots and let cook about another hour or so. You could add cabbage as well; I didn't yesterday but that would be traditional. If I'd had cabbage, I would have added it, I guess--it's one of the few occasions that I actually like cooked cabbage. LOL The corned beef was delicious.

    From heavy liquid;

    recently made Beef Burgundy which I thought turned out very tasty and I was really happy with. I used a recipe from America's Test Kitchen (Cook's Illustrated). I didn't do too much improvisation, as this was my first time cooking it.

    It's a great recipe for people who work long hours and don't want to spend a lot of time cooking when they get home. And it's always a plus to be greeted to the wonderful smells when you come home!

    Only about half of the wine is added in the beginning, with the rest added at the end after it's reduced. This is because if you cooked it all at once, it would turn sour over the nine hours it takes to cook.

    What you need:

    8 oz. bacon chopped
    4 lbs stew beef (chuck preferably)
    1 large onion chopped fine
    2 carrots chopped fine
    8 garlic cloves minced
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    4 tbs. tomato paste
    2 1/2 cups Pinot Noir or Burgundy wine
    1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    1/3 cup soy sauce
    3 or 4 bay leaves
    3 tbs. Minute Tapioca
    3 tbs. minced fresh parsley
    2 cups pearl onions
    10 oz white mushrooms, quartered

    See this thread for more info and great pics.

    Make sure to serve with crusty bread to dip into the juices!



    4 lbs boneless beef chuck roast
    1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    6 medium onions, sliced
    1 1/2 cups beef broth
    3/4 cup regular beer or non-alcoholic beer
    2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons cider vinegar


    Trim excess fat from beef.
    Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
    Cook beef in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides.
    Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    Place onions in 3 1/2-to 6-quart slow cooker.
    Place beef on onions.
    Mix remaining ingredients; pour over beef and onions.
    Cover and cook on low setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender.
    Remove beef and onions from cooker, using slotted spoon.
    Cut beef into slices.
    Skim fat from beef juices in cooker if desired.
    Serve beef with juices

    This is delicious-I use it all the time...

    John A,
    Nice bamboo cutting board.

    Had this one a few weeks ago at a friend's cabin in the NC mountains. Nothing but the guys but among the six guys there are three veryy good cooks. One of the others was going through the freezer and decided the dogs should get the deer shanks. Being guys w/ no women around to go "YUCK" we took them back from the dogs and washed them. Deer shanks, carrots, can of tomatoes and onions into the crock pot at dawn. Carrots and onions in cheesecloth bag for easy removal. Auto setting on the crock pot

    Five o'clock we return from plowing, repairing fence lines and general repairs around the place. Carrot and onion bag is discarded (actually the dogs got it) and in seperate pots go carrots (a slice or two of ginger added), potatoes, small onions, turnips and a monster daikon root.

    I feel that cooking the veggies away from the meat and not in the crockpot added another level of flavor. They were "bright in taste" and w/o that mushy texture common to vegetables cooked in a crockpot. Served w/ a nice green salad (even added some of last year's ramps from the freezer just to po the wives when we got home), stir fried green beans and biscuits. Ramps make you stink like you ate a bushel of raw garlic but is VERY good for your heart.

    This one came in my email today.. Yet to try it, but should be tasty, not to mention simple.

    BLOODY MARY SLOW-COOKER CHICKEN:

    4 chicken breasts
    1 (33 7/8 ounce) bottle bloody mary mix (extra spicy okay)
    1/2 cup celery, chopped
    1/2 cup onions, chopped
    1/2 cup carrots, chopped

    Rinse chicken with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Remove any fat from the chicken and place in the slow cooker.
    Pour the Bloody Mary mix over the chicken breasts and add the chopped vegetables. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with rice or hot noodles.

    This is absolutely incredible and if you don't tell anyone, they probably would never guess you made it in a crockpot.

    CROCKPOT CHICKEN CASSOULET

    1 whole chicken cut up, skin on, bone-in
    1 1/2# kielbasa sausage cut in 1/2" thick slices
    2 cans Italian cannellini beans - I use Progresso, drained
    1 onion, medium dice
    3 cloves garlic, finely minced or for milder taste for those that garlic bothers, slice each clove in half and remove the kernel or core and add the halves
    3 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, finely minced 9can use regular curly but much better with Italian)
    Salt & fresh ground pepper to taste (go lite on the salt as it really doesn't take much)
    1/2 cup white wine - I use pinot grigio

    Place all the ingredients in the crockpot and let cook for 6 hours. Serve with good crusty bread.


    Other tips:
    If I really want a nice presentation on this dish, I take an extra step and get a nice browning on the chicken on one side before putting in crockpot and put it on the top barely nestled into everything else.

    To stretch for a crowd cheaply, use all thighs and add extra beans and susage - - you can really stretch this cheaply and easily. Don't necessarily need to double the amount of garlic or wine though.

    My co-worker just gave me this recipe- I'm going to try it this weekend and let y'all know how it is:

    These are listed in order of putting them in the crock pot, bottom to top:

    - 1/2 bottle of cheap red or white wine (just *NOT* sherry)
    - 1 carton of chicken broth (like the large tetra paks; not sure on the exact measurement)
    - 8 oz brick of cream cheese, softened and squeezed into the liquid- make sure it's mostly submerged or
    it will dry out and be icky.
    - 6 or so boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    - 1 onion, cut into quarters
    - mushrooms (washed, but kept whole)
    - frozen broccoli (fresh will get soggy faster)
    - sprinkle seasonings over top, such as garlic, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, etc.

    Cook for 6 hours on low setting. If it seems like it needs to be thickened, add more parmesan- you don't want to use flour or something- it will get all gravy-esque.

    Sorry about the lack of precise measurements, but I'll assume anyone on this site has enough cooking common sense to work this out. I'll post again after I make it!

    Stricken's Mom's Beef Roast

    1 boneless beef roast, 5 pounds or so
    1# bag of carrots
    5-6 white potatoes
    1 packet Lipton onion soup mix

    Peel carrots & cut in half, put in bottom of slow cooker. Put roast on top of the carrots. Peel & quarter potatoes and put them over the meat. Sprinkle the whole thing with the onion soup mix. Cook about 8 hours on medium. You can use the leftovers to make beef stew later in the week.
