post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Looking for some "crock pot" recipes. I love to use my crock pot and since I am working late recently, I would love some slow cooker recipes!!
If you have any that you would like to share I would be sooooo thankful!!

I did a easy roast for hot beef sandwiches last week.
One 3# beef roast (I think pork shoulder would work too!) 1 pkg dry Onion soup mix and then I added beer for the liquid. Tossed in some pepper as the soup has enough salt. I cooked 8-10 hr on low then shredded the meat by hand and added some of the liquid back!!

Here's my favorite

Taco Soup

1 lb ground beef
onion (chopped) I use about 1/2
1 package taco seasoning
1 can kidney beans (do not drain)
1 can corn (drain)
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cup water

In a crock pot put in kidney beans, corn, tomato sauce and water, cook on medium heat. Fry ground beef and onion, drain, then add taco seasoning. Add that to the other ingredients in the pot, turn heat down to low. The key to this recipe (IMO) is the longer it cooks (on low heat) the better it is.

It can be served over chips (Fritos, etc.) with grated cheese on top, or with cornbread.... or just by itself.

It's so easy to make, it's basically a 'dump' recipe besides frying the hamburger.

I put pork chops in mine all the time - one can of cream of mushroom soup, one can water - put your pork chops and the water and soup all in at the same time - put on the low setting and let them cook for at least 5-6 hours - they are so good, they melt in your mouth when you eat them! I usually start mine @ noon when I come home from work and they are done by 6PM when I get home at night

I do the same thing with chicken breasts and cream of chicken soup - same as above for the pork chops

Pork roast:
1 sirloin pork roast. Put in enough water to 1/2 cover the roast. Top with Goulden's mustard. (or any mustard, actually...optional) Mix 1 package of Lipton onion soup mix and one onion sliced into the water. Cook on low for about 8 hours. if you know how to make home made gravy, the water from this roast is very yummy for it! Let us know what you try and how you liked it!

Go there! It's a great website. I also love the slowcooker section of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It has an amazing beef brisket recipe.

This is another of my favorite websites:

This is a really good crockpot cookbook:

Here are a few links to some posted elsewhere, and a few I copied here for you. Enjoy! All are tried and true.

This next one is absolutely delicious and a real treat. It's like sauerbraten without all the work. I've used stew meat in it too.

4 Pounds Chuck roast
Salt And Pepper -- to taste
2 Onions -- sliced
10 Ounces Can of beef broth
1/2 Cup Brown sugar
1/2 Cup Cider Vinegar
8 Gingersnaps -- crushed into crumbs
Hot cooked noodles

1. Sprinkle the roast on all sides with salt and pepper; I sometimes brown in a HOT oven (about 500 deg for 15 minutes or so). 2. Place the roast in crock pot and the onion, broth. Mix the brown sugar and vinegar together. I heat in the microwave until the sugar melts. Then pour this over the beef in Crockpot. 3. Cover and cook for 5 to 6 hours on HIGH, turning once or twice. 4. Remove roast and set aside. 5. Add the crumbled gingersnaps to the sauce in the Crockpot. Stir until the sauce thickens. 6. Slice meat and serve with the gravy spooned over the slices. It is great with noodles. NOTE: If dinner is not quite ready you can put the meat back into the Crockpot with the sauce and keep it on LOW for another hour or two.


8 slices bread
8 ounces grated cheese
1 cup cooked, cut up meat (optional)
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon parsley

Lightly grease pot. Layer bread, cheese & meat (if used). Beat together eggs, milk, evaporated milk, salt & parsley. Pour over bread and cheese in pot. Sprinkle top with paprika. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.


1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup onions -- chopped
1 cup celery -- chopped
1 pan cornbread -- crumbled
6 slices bread -- crumbled
1/4 pound crackers -- crumbled
2 teaspoons thyme, sage or poultry seasoning
5 1/2 cups chicken broth (approx.)
4 eggs -- beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 hen or chicken, or 3 to 4 cups chicken

Boil hen or large fryer for your broth & chicken, or use canned broth and cooked, cut-up chicken.

Saute onions & celery in butter. Pour this mixture over the bread & cracker crumbs in a very large mixing bowl. Add seasonings and toss together. Pour enough broth ointo mixture to moisten. Add eggs & mix together well. Add baking powder, milk & remaining broth. Mixture should be very slushy. Add chicken. Pack tightly in a 5 quart crockpot. Cover& cook on high for 4 hours. Reduce to low & cook 4 to 8 hours more (or cook on low all day).


4 boneless pork chops (see notes)
1 package refrigerated sauerkraut -- (not canned)
1 medium apple, peeled, cored, & very thinly sliced
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 cup white wine (see notes for alternatives)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds (add more if you like)
salt & pepper to taste

Place the pork in the crockpot. Mix together the sauerkraut, apple slices, brown sugar, caraway seeds, and salt and pepper to taste, and place on the pork. Pour the wine over all, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. (Can be left longer if needed.)

If possible try to stir a bit about 1/2 hour to an hour before serving. When ready, taste and adjust seasonings if necessary and stir the sauerkraut a bit to blend the flavors before serving.

NOTES: You can also use regular pork chops, slices of pork loin, or country ribs, even a roast.

If you prefer not using wine, try substituting 1/4 cup apple juice mixed with 1/4 cup water, plain water, or 1/2 white grape juice and 1/2 water.

I hope you have enough! That really does sound super good. You must have a really big crock pot! Mine is just a medium sized one. I really want a bigger one tho!

No, my crockpot isn't that big, I just stuff it in there!

How big a crockpot are we talking about here?

I have a huge 7qt, it's my most used kitchen appliance next to my coffee pot.

Today I'm doing chicken and dumplings, which is probably the easiest thing in the world to make.

All amounts dependant on crockpot size.
I use boneless/skinless chicken breast
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
Fresh minced garlic (to taste)
(any veggies you choose I used baby carrots and celery)
Chicken stock (or Cream of chicken soup)
4 tablespoons cornstarch disolved in cold water (or you can use one pkg chicken gravy mix) for thickener.

I let it cook all day (and it kills me because the smell makes me sooooo hungry)

I'm lazy and use bisquick dumpling recipe (you can also use canned biscuits).
Drop dumplings in and cook 20 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered.
