    crock pot recipies: good ones. whatcha got?

    I just put dinner in... simple as it gets:

    1 beef/pork roast.
    1 large jar of pepperoncini peppers.

    Trim the roast of as much fat as possible. Combine and cook until the roast pulls apart. You can use this to make sandwiches, eat it by itself, tacos, etc. You won't believe how much flavor you get from something this simple.

    I used a 3lb beef sirloin tip roast w/ a 32oz jar of pepperoncinis (juice & all - they come pickled sitting in vinegar/water/salt). Currently cooking for 8hrs on low in a 6qt crock pot.

    The appliance on the left is a Black & Decker "Lids Off" -- invaluable for dealing w/ quad paws in the kitchen.

      Pork and Sauerkraut

      2lbs - Fresh pork (spare ribs, baby back ribs, country style ribs or pork shoulder will all work)
      1 bag - Sauerkraut
      2 - Granny Smith Apples (medium dice)
      1 - Large onion (medium dice)
      1 cup - water

      Put everything in crock pot, pork on top and cook until pork is tender. The sweetnees from the onions and apples mixed with the pork juice and sauerkraut really compliment eachother and actually sweeten the kraut.

        Same directions as yours Scott, except use a boneless pork loin roast, and a bottle of BBQ sauce.

        Pull the meat apart with 2 forks when it is done. Makes great sandwiches.

          I toss in a whole chicken, season, and add cut up carrots, celery, onions and potatoes...and any other thing I can find that sounds good at the time. Very quick procedure in the morning, and at supper time, viola. Probably not the healthiest, being as there is probably a lot of fat contained within one whole chicken, but we only go round once.

            I love my slowcooker! 3 things I make often..

            -beef roast (brown floured roast in pan, put in slowcooker, add 1 can half fat mushroom soup, 1 package onion soup mix, and 1 can of beef broth) - makes great gravy for mashed potatos.
            - chilli - just wing it but ground beef flavoured with tex-mex spice, mushrooms, onions, green/red peppers, red beans, can of creamed corn, some salsa, can of tomato soup, cumin and chili powder to taste
            - beef stew - totally wing this depending on what i need to use up.

                Carnitas.............

                bonless pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 1/4's
                good chili powder/ancho chili powder
                gound cumin, fresh ground seeds if possible
                S&P
                hot grill
                crock pot
                i jar of good hot Tomatillo salsa (salsa verde)

                save a table spoon or 2 of the spices. rub the pork with the spices preferably overnite. sear on a grill over some mesquite chips (can be done a day ahead). add to the crock pot and cover with the salsa & remaining chili/cumin a cook on med till it falls a part. (usually pour off the juice into a tall jar and refridge, pull off the hard fat next day and freeze the stock for chili)
                warm corn tortillas (i grill mine), and the rest of your fav taco goodies. i usually do some black beans with cumin, diced serranos and cilantro. the leftover shredded pork freezes well for another taco nite. remember, a taco isnt a taco unless it has cilantro and a fresh squeezed lime wedge !!!! enjoy

                  My friend at work was telling me about one...

                  Brown some cube steak.

                  Put browned cube steak in crock pot.

                  Add a can of mushroom soup. (cream of mushroom? I gotta double check tomorrow)...

                  Cook in crock pot for 6 hours...

                  She says the flavor is awesome!

                  I'm gonna get better details tomorrow!

                  PS--I'm no cook, but crockpots I CAN do...lol.

                    One beef roast, cheapest cut available. Add one package onion soup mix and two small cans of cream of mushroom soup. Cook 8-10 hours on low until the meat falls apart. Serve with rice or noodles. Wonderful.

                      After that, we go kind of pear shaped.

                          Has anyone seen the liners that go in a crock pot? That all you have to do after you have cooked the food and to throw away the liner and it is clean. Some can be so heavy to P/U and clean. I have not tried them yet, but I just got a crock pot and I want to try it out.

                          Now is the hardest part of all, what to cook for the first time.

                              A couple of old standbys:

                              3 Bean Pot

                              1 lb. hamburger meat, crumbled and browned.
                              1 medium can garbanzo beans, drained.
                              1 medium can kidney beans, drained.
                              1 medium can pinto beans, drained.
                              2 Tb. dehydrated chopped onion
                              1 medium can tomato paste.
                              1/4 C. brown sugar.

                              Mix all together and cook in crock pot on low for 5-6 hours. Serve with crusty sour dough bread and a green salad.

                              Stay-A-Bed Stew

                              2 lb. beef stew meat, cubed
                              1 can tiny peas, drained
                              1 C. sliced carrots
                              1 large chopped white onion
                              1 large sliced potato
                              1 can condensed tomato soup
                              1 bay leaf
                              1/2 tsp. salt
                              1/2 C. water
                              1/4 tsp. ground pepper

                              Mix all together, put in crock pot at low for 6-8 hours. Go back to bed.

                              Here is another:

                              Pineapple Ginger Chicken

                              4-5 boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
                              1 bunch green onions, cut in 1/2" slices
                              1 8 oz. can crush pineapple with juice
                              1 Tb. finely crush chopped crystalized ginger
                              2 Tb. lemon juice
                              2 Tb. soy sauce
                              3 Tb. brown sugar
                              1/2 tsp. garlic powder

                              Put all ingredients in crock pot at low for 6-8 hours. Serve over steamed rice.
