Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

Pulled Pork is our new love...no idea how to make it, though. Since starting my HC, DH's is responsible for cooking or I'll just eat handfulls of granola all night

Lemme ask him. Ok. He says:

Pork shoulder, something like that. Really any pork that is a roast. About a cup of oil. 3 cups brown sugar. Put water in until it covers the pork. Cook all day--it shreds naturally & is tender and moist as a sandwich.

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I've tried the chicken in sour cream - it's delicious with the wine in the sauce. I've always made mine in the oven, though. Good to know it can be done in the crockpot!

We always do pork loin chops and sauerkraut in the crockpot - so moist!

Basically any meat with something moist will turn out well in the crockpot! I can't think of any recipes except beef stew (must be the lack of sleep!) I'll be watching, though.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

INGREDIENTS

3 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
DIRECTIONS
Place sliced potatoes in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix together shredded cheese, onion and ham. Mix with potatoes in slow cooker. Using the same bowl, mix together condensed soup and water. Season to taste with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the potato mixture.
Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours.

**Used fat free cream of mushroom soup and it turned out fine, I am always looking to cut down on fat.

Sour Cream Pork Chops
INGREDIENTS
6 pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 large onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 cubes chicken bouillon
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
DIRECTIONS
Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and then dredge in 1/2 cup flour. In a skillet over medium heat, lightly brown chops in a small amount of oil.
Place chops in slow cooker, and top with onion slices. Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water and pour over chops. Cover, and cook on Low 7 to 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
After the chops have cooked, transfer chops to the oven to keep warm. Be careful, the chops are so tender they will fall apart. In a small bowl, blend 2 tablespoons flour with the sour cream; mix into meat juices. Turn slow cooker to High for 15 to 30 minutes, or until sauce is slightly thickened. Serve sauce over pork chops.

I used Low fat sour cream and although the sauce wasn't very thick it was still AWESOME!! We loved this recipe. I just made it for the first time a couple weeks ago and served it over egg noodles. It's a keeper.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
INGREDIENTS
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 1/4 cups water
5 1/2 pounds pot roast
DIRECTIONS
In a slow cooker, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water. Place pot roast in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture.
Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 8 to 9 hours.

I also threw in some red potatoes and carrots. i cut the potatoes in half.... instant meal. Again I used the fat free soup and it turned out fine......


I am not a very good cook but I am learning and I LOVE, LOVE EASY!! I use the website Allrecipes.com because you can search a ton of different ways and each recipe has reviews and you can see what people like about the recipe, what they changed, what they added. It's been my life line to the kitchen.

anyways, all three of these were really good!!

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee my crockpot, use it year round a couple times a week...most of my stuff isn't recipes, per se, just stuff I throw together!

Steak and Beans:


Bag of pinto beans (dry, 1lb)
2-3 bacon wrapped beef fillets (buy on sale!)

Wash the beans, put in crockpot, stick the meat sort of in the middle. Fill ALL THE WAY up with water...cook on low all day, turn up on high and add more water in the afternoon, steak will fall apart! We eat this like soup with cornbread and the leftovers are yummy! This is a good one if you be home to sort of watch it...the beans soak up so much water and will get dried out if you aren't careful.

I also do this with lots of other beans - we also like white beans and ham cooked this way!

Chicken...I use the individually frozen chicken breasts in my crockpot b/c I think they dry out any other way you cook them...I always start with mine frozen, just stick em in the crockpot.

Then add your choice:
A bottle of barbeque sauce...meat will shred and is great for a sandwich

a can of cream soup (chicken, potato, broccoli, mushroom - I have even used the reduced fat), serve over rice or noodles.

A bottle of italian salad dressing (you might need two if you are cooking much chicken)...great with or on a salad

My family's fave - Crockpot Meatloaf

Cut up enought potatoes in chunks to cover the bottom of your crockpot, spray pot with PAM or oil it well, place potatoes in the bottom. Make a meatloaf like you normally would (I mix 1-1.5 lbs of ground meat, an egg, some bread crumbs, and onion flake, maybe a squirt of ketchup - my folks like simple), shape it into a loaf and place in the crockpot, making sure the sides of the loaf don't touch the pot. Cook on low 8 hours. I usually put this on at 7 am and then turn it up to high at about 3pm to get a nice brown crust. (we eat at 5:30, to give you a time reference)

Beef Tips and Rice


2 lbs stew meat, trimmed
2 packs of brown gravy or beef stew dry mixes
Water

Combine in crockpot, cook on low all day, serve over rice or noodles


I'll post more as I think of them! Great thread!

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

Here's my fav:

Cheesy CP Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 can Cheddar Cheese Soup
2 cans Cream of Chicken soup
Salt and pepper to taste.

Cook on whatever I've done anywhere from 6-12 hours. Serve over rice.

I made this the other night just to have on hand for quick lunches. My DH just opened the fridge and said "OOOH! Cheesey crock pot chicken!!!". He loves that stuff!

Oh Val! I made that broccoli chicken one when you posted it on the old board. DH actually liked it - and he hates broccoli.

This sounds good. Here's how I do my pulled pork:
2 lbs. pork tenderloin, or pork loin - like you said any "roast"
Spice rub (we have "dinosaur bbq" spice rub, but you could use anything really. Chili powder mixed with a little salt and pepper would probably work great.)
2 c. beef broth (or 2 c. water with 2 cubes beef bouillon)
1 16 oz. bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Pat the spice rub to make a thin coating all over the pork. Put it in the crock pot, cover it with the beef broth. Cook on low 10-12 hours. When finished, carefully pull out meat onto a plate or cutting board. Dump liquid that was in the crock pot - you don't need it. Pull the meat apart gently to shred it, and put it back in the emptied crock pot. Mix in 1/2 to 1 bottle of the BBQ sauce to taste. You can put it back on low to warm it back up a little before serving. Serve as is, with a little more sauce on top, either right on the plate or on a roll or bread as a sandwich. Coleslaw is great on the sandwich with this!

Makes 6 generous servings. It is easy to do, but yummy for "company"! I usually get it ready at night and put it in the fridge. DH takes it out of the fridge, and puts it on low in the AM before he leaves for work, when we are sleeping. This way it gets a good 10-12 hours before dinnertime.
