whats nice about crock pots, you dont have to watch them at all, and you can create your own recipes. try pork chops, steaks, sausage, or chicken, and add some cream of mushroom soup, or maybe some italian dressing. hot sauce, soy sauce, mshrooms, peppers, potatoes, carrots, onions, anything really. if you come across some good ideas, send them on to me, would love to hear them!

    Baby Back Ribs
    Submitted by: Taste of Home Test Kitchen
    Rated: 5 out of 5 by 19 members Prep Time: 5 Minutes
    Cook Time: 6 Hours 15 Minutes Ready In: 6 Hours 20 Minutes
    Yields: 4 servings
    “Slow-cook the ribs during the day and they will be ready to finish on the grill when you get home.”
    2 1/2 pounds pork baby back
    ribs, cut into serving size
    5 cups water
    1 medium onion, sliced
    2 celery ribs, cut in half

    2 teaspoons minced garlic,
    1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
    1/2 cup barbecue sauce
    1/4 cup plum sauce
    1 dash hot pepper sauce
    1. Place the ribs in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add the water, onion, celery, 1 teaspoon garlic and peppercorns. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until meat is tender.
    2. In a small saucepan, combine the barbecue sauce, plum sauce, hot pepper sauce and remaining garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through. Remove ribs. Discard cooking juices and vegetables.
    3. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Brush ribs with sauce. Grill, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally and brushing with remaining sauce.

  3. All you really need to get is a good chunk of London Broil or roast. Get a packet of Italian dressing seasonings – heat it to boiling over the stove for a couple minutes.

    Have the roast in the crockpot. Pour the mix over it. Cook it on high a few hours, then reduce to low and let it sit for a good, long time. Add water in as necessary.

    When I take it out, I shred the meat with forks. Readd it to the crockpot and let it soak up lots of juices.

    THEN, I take a loaf of crusty bread or sub rolls, cut them like you would for sandwiches, pull out some of the bread “stuffing” if you like. Stuff the meat into the rolls/bread. Smother it with shredded mozarella cheese.

    Serve them with a big cup of juices from the pot, alongside the sandwiches, like a French dip.

    My mom & aunt have been making this in the crock pot for a long time. They call it “Italian Beef”. I just call it INCREDIBLE. lol. 🙂 You can probably find a more precise recipe on the ‘net. But I promise you won’t be disappointed with this!!

    I serve the sandwiches with a big salad, too. 🙂

    Good luck!! 🙂

  4. Crock Pot Chicken Salsa Curry

    10 chicken thighs-bone in
    1 jar of your fav salsa
    1/2 onion chopped
    1 tablespoon curry (or about 1/2 if you don’t like a strong curry taste)
    1/2 cup sour cream

    Place the chicken in the crock pot. Mix the onion, curry and salsa. Pour over the chicken and cook on low for about 6-8 hours.

    When the chicken is done take it out of the crock pot and put on a serving plate. Add the sour cream and mix well. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.

    This would go well with rice or cous cous.

    If you don’t have crock pot you could also do this is a roasting pan or a casserole dish with a cover or tin foil(about 200) check it though since it may cook faster. I have only done this once in the ovena dn I think I cooked it for 3-4 hours. This recipe is easy to do smaller portions of as well.

    1 pork roast (4-5) pounds

    1/2 ornage peel on, sliced thick

    Heat the pomagranite juice and sugar until the sugar is dissolved, pour into the bottom of the crock pot.

    Mix the salt, granulated garlic, steak seasoning, and pepper. Rub all over pork, then lay the pork on top of the juice in the pan. Turn once so that it is coverd in the juice.

    Cover the pork with the pears and oranges. Cover and cook on high for 6-8 hours or until tender. Serve with juice and fruit slices.

    1 lb hamburger
    1 onion chopped
    2-3 cloves garlic
    1 can stewed tomatoes
    1 can kidney beans

    To taste:

    chili powder]
    seasoned salt

    Brown the bruger and drain. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent. Add to a pan and add the other ingredients. Taste and add more spices as you need to have your taste buds happy.
    Basic Stew:
    1 pound stew meat
    1 or 2 carrots peeled and cut into big chunks
    1 or 2 ribs of celery cut into big chunks
    1 onion chopped
    1 large white potato or 2 medium potatoes peeled and chopped
    1 clove garlic chopped
    1 can stewed tomatoes
    Seasonings such as seasoned salt, granulated garlic, pepper, celery salt, onion powder and a few bay leaves

    In a large skillet heat the oil.
    In a zipper seal bag add flour and all the seasoning to taste-except bay leaves. You want to season it kinda heavily because it will basically season your whole stew.
    Toss the meat into the bag of flour and coat well. Add the meat to the oil, adding a little extra flour.
    Meanwhile add all veggies and bay leaf to a soup or crock pot. Add the meat when it is done frying, add all the flour drippings as well.
    Simmer on low heat until the meat and veggies are tender. Adding more water or seasonings as needed. Stir from time to time as well.

    Or just toss everything in the slow cooker and cook for 4-5 hours on medium or low.
    Beef and Bean Crock-pot Soup:

    2 pounds hamburger
    1 lg onion
    1 green bell pepper (optional)
    ¼ pound bacon chopped up kinda small

    1 can (16 oz) butter beans
    1 can (16 oz) kidney beans
    1 can (16 oz) Pork and beans (or pinto beans)
    1 can (16 oz) tomato sauce.

    ½ cup brown sugar
    ½ cup white sugar
    2 tbsp molasses
    2 tsp vinegar
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp dry mustard

    Brown the hamburger and bacon together. Drain, and add the onion and bell pepper. Pour into large crock pot and add all remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and cook on low 3-4 hours.

    Also sometimes items like boxed rice are good and so easy in a pinch. Use the low sodium variety and then mix it with equal parts plain brown, white or wild rice. Still only eat 1 recommended portion from the package. This will still have a good flavor but at the same time drastically reduce your sodium intake of that product.


  5. Easiest crockpot recipe ever:
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1 bottle italian dressing
    Cook on low for 8 hours and pair it with a veggie and you are good to go.

  6. My favorite- easiest recipe would have to be Ham BBQ. Get about 2 lbs. of sliced deli ham. In a large bowl, use about 1 large bottle of BBQ sauce, about 4 tbsp of mustard, a diced onion, a dash of ketchup, and 4 tbsp of brown sugar. Throw it all in together in the crock pot and mix it around. Put it on Low for about 3 hours and you have a wonderful smelling absolutely delicious dinner waiting for you! Heat up some hamburger buns and enjoy!

  7. do a google search on crock pot recipes, you’ll find a bunch. I found even spaghetti and meatballs on it, and it was great!
