Wink What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

Maybe we'd make a sticky if we get enough recipes together?
I really love my crock pot and want to use it much more often, especially now that the cold(er) times have come.

So, what are your favorite crock pot recipes? Please share with me/us!

One of the most made meals I've made in the crock pot is
Broccoli Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts
1-2 small cans of cream of broccoli (I use fat free)
Fresh broccoli

Place the chicken breasts in the crock pot, pour the cream of broccoli on top, if too thick, thin it w/some milk and cook on high for 4 hrs. After that add the broccoli florets on top of everything for another 15-20 mins (depending on how hard/soft you like your broccoli) and it's done.

Serve over rice, super yummy and quick.

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

This is one of my favorites. I don't have a name for it though.

beef roast-whatever is the cheapest really
2 cans cream of mushroom soup-I use reduced fat
1 package lipton onion soup mix
1 onion cut up

mix all of it up together and cook on low all day-the roast will fall apart then.

Serve over rice or egg noodles

I also make beef stew alot.

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

I just have the lazy mom's beef stew recipe.

I buy the package of beef stew mix from the store and use that for seasoning.

about 1.5 of beef stew meat-already cut up from store
half bag of baby carrots
peel and cube about 6 potatoes
slice 1 yellow onion

I like a stalk of celery in mine but DH does't, so I don't make it that way anymore.

I just mix up the seasoning mix with about a cup of water and pour it over everything. Then I let it cook on low all day while I'm at work.

Serve with rolls and I love to put Texas Pete hot sauce in mine. I just do that when I eat it since I make it too hot for DD!

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

OK. Here are a few...

Caribbean-Style Black Bean Soup
1 lb Dried, black beans, washed
3 Onions, chopped, small
1 Green pepper, chopped
2 tbls. Tomato paste
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Ham hock or cup cubed ham
1 tbsp Oil
1 tbsp Cumin
2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
Salt and pepper
3 cups Water
2 tbsp Vinegar
Sour cream
Chopped cilantro

Directions:
Soak beans overnight in water, drain. Combine all ingredients except the last three, stir and cover. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours. For a thicker soup, take out of soup and blend, then add back in. Add vinegar and serve with sour cream and cilantro.

Oh, I don't have any more on this computer... Well, I've got a bunch of good ones, so I'll come back and post some more.

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

OK. I don't have a specific recipe for this, but it works well.

Crockpot Lasagna:
2 jars of spaghetti sauce
4 oz Lasagna noodles
2 8 oz packages of shredded mozzerella cheese
1 12?oz container of ricotta cheese - not the smallest one they have, but next one up... Heck, just get whatever and put it in, the more the merrier

So you just layer everything anyway you want. This is what I do:
Mix all the ricotta with all the mozzeralla, add some salt and pepper if you'd like.
Put one of the jars of sauce in the bottom, a layer of uncooked (that's the nice part about this recipe) pasta, half the cheese mixture, a layer of pasta, another jar of sauce, another layer of pasta, then the rest of the cheese.

I think I put it on High for around 3-4 hours, but I'm sure it'd work on low for maybe 6-8 or so. Nothing magical to it, it's just that you have to cook it long enough for the pasta to cook and then it's done! I love lasagna, but I never make it b/c I'd have to cook the pasta, THEN make the dish. But if you do it this way you just throw a bunch of stuff together and leave.

One Dish Chicken Supper
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast halves
10 3/4 oz. can cream of chicken soup (or cream of mushroom/celery
1/3 cup milk
1 pkg Stove Top Stuffing Mix (I used Savory Herb)
1 can chicken broth (or 1 2/3 c. water)

1. Place chicken in croc pot.
2. Combine soup and milk. Pour over chicken.
3. Combine stuffing mix and broth. Spoon over chicken.
4. Cover & cook on LOW for 8-10 hours

A different kind of Pot Roast We bought a bunch of pot roasts when they were on sale at Farmer Jack, so we needed to come up with different ideas for them. Here is one we thought of.

1 pot roast
2 cans of stewed tomatoes
Any vegetables you want (potatoes, carrots, etc)

Add all of the ingredients to the crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Chicken Paprika:
Layer in crockpot:
sliced onions
olive oil
sliced potatoes
salte, pepper
paprika
boneless, skinless chicken (I prefer thighs, they are moister)

Repeat the layers to the top of the crockpot (well, about 1 inch from the top).

Add chicken broth (about 1/2 to 1 cup)

Set on "Low" for about 8 hours.

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

PORK CHOPS - We cut this recipe in half and it was really good!

8 pork chops
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cans French Onion Soup (plain french onion)

Brown pork chops in skillet over medium heat. They won't turn brown, they will turn white, and it only takes a few seconds (you don't need to cook them through, this just helps for flavor. It really isn't necessary). Place pork chops in bottom of crock pot (just throw em all in there). Mix soup all together. Pour it on top. I kinda shake it around and use a spoon to poke it to make sure the soup gets down to the bottom. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with white rice.

Chicken in Sour Cream Sauce
• 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon paprika
• 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
• 6 bone-in chicken breast halves (skinless)
• 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (or chicken or celery or brocolli) - undiluted
• 1 cup sour cream
• 1/2 cup dry white wine or chiken broth
• 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced


Combine the first four ingredients and rub over both sides of chicken breasts.

Place in a slow cooker (crock pot). In a bowl, combine the soup, sour cream, and wine or broth; stir in mushrooms.

Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Thicken sauce if desired.



Salsa Verde Stew: my all time favorite crock pot recipe!

1 1/2 lbs stew meat
4 medium potatoes, cut in cubes
1 large coarsely chopped sweet onion
1 green sweet pepper chopped
1 14 oz Mexican style stewed tomatoes
1 15 oz can pinto beans, drained
1 cup salsa
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 teasp cumin
flour tortillas

Combine all ingredients, cook for 6-8 hrs.

Ohh, I never make lasagne b/c I don't have time. This would be great for dinner one night.

These recipes are great! I WOH full time, so I love my crockpot!
