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

This is an awesome thread!

Here is our favorite spaghetti sauce. It is nice and thick and tastes even better the second day. We usually half the recipe and it is enough for DH and I to eat for one night and leftovers the next. I usually add a little extra brown sugar and chili pepper.

To save time I assemble the sauce ingredients in the crockpot while the ground beef is browning.

Spaghetti Sauce

Brown In Frying Pan:

2 Medium Onions, chopped
2 lb Hamburger (I add a little garlic, salt & pepper to the meat, but this is not in the recipe)

Add to above in crockpot:

4 cloves of garlic (I use the pre-minced stuff in the jar)
2 cans tomatoes, drained and cut up or you can buy the mini diced ones
2 cans tomato sauce (15 oz size)
2 cans tomato paste (6 oz size)
1/2 cup parsley
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
3 teaspoons Dried Crushed Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Crushed Thyme
2 Bay Leaves
1 green bell pepper, cut up (we omit this since dh doesn't like green pepper)
2 cups water (we add less because we like thick sauce. For full recipe probably 1 1/2 cup and for half recipe probably 1/2 to 3/4 cup. Just add the water last and you will be able to gauge with your eyes how thick you want it).

Cook on low all day.

Crock Pot Ultimate Chocolate Frenzy Cake
Yes a cake in a crock pot. Soooooo Good and sooooo easy!

1 Chocolate Cake Mix
1 pint sour cream
1 instant chocolate pudding
1 bag 12 oz chocolate chips
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients together and place in crock pot. Cook 8-10 hours on low. Scoop out into bowls and serve with ice cram and chocolate suace. Great for pot lucks! I brought this once to a pot luck and is requested everytime.

I would love to see this thread sticky. I'm always looking for crock pot recipes this would be a great reference.

Sticky! Sticky! Sticky!
Great idea pp!


FYI - I have a great cookbook published by Better homes and Gardens. I'll see if I can find it on amazon to post a link. It might be a good item to add to your holiday wish list! (I know people are always asking what I want, and I'm like....duh.... I dunno!)

Here it is: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0696215462/ref=nosim/chrisficti-20

Put the entire jar of apricot preserves over the meat. Now refill the preserves jar with apple, peach, pear or apricot juice and pour that in too. Let cook all day!

Mmmm... they are soooo moist. THey fall right off the bone. Mm... and they have a nice sweet flavor, but not too sweet!

OK, I'm trying this today. I suppose I should just half the recipe if its only 2 lonely chops, right?
And cook what, 7-8 hours on low?
