    Recipes

    Hi, everybody. Hope your holidays were great! I got a crockpot for Christmas and have no idea what to cook in there. Anybody have any simple recipes that I could make in this thing?

    Clara, I am not much of a cook but I do know that there are loads of "one-pot" dinners cookbooks out there. I have even seen them near the registers at supermarkets. Good luck!

    I'm not the cook in our house, but my husband makes a decent turkey chili in our crockpot, let's it simmer all day and the house smells great. Also, he makes a great baked beans recipe in there too. You can buy crockpot specific cookbooks too.

    I throw some lipton noodle soup mix (chicken) some water, salt pepper, chicken, potatoes, carrots onions, and waterever else you like in an cook it on low all day long.

    The best thing about crock pots is you really can just throw a bunch of stuff in and it will always taste good. They're weird that way

    Do they have a few recipes in the back of the directions booklet? You caould try those.

    I haven't used my crockpot in so long....

    Or if you ever have a leftover ham bone, you can throw it in with 6 cups of water and a bag of white beans. Makes a great ham and bean soup.

    Ok, I am a crock pot maniac!!! here are is a really easy and fabulous meal. Once pork loin,, what ever size you want, a package of lipton onion soup mix and a can of Dr. Pepper put in some carrots too as much as you like,, then put it on low for the day or high for 4 hours it is ready when you are,, don't open the lid though.. the meat falls apart and the seasoning is soooo good and the juice makes great gravy for potatoes etc...

    Another is a beef brisket,, a bottle of liquid smoke, celery salt, season salt and a dash of worchister,,, cup or two of water, let it cook all day. Use a small bottle of liquid smoke or a 1/2 a large one.

    Those sound great!

    I usually just do roasts (a good-sized roast, as many redskin potatoes as you can fit, and a 2-lb bag of baby carrots, some water and spices, cook all day on low), or chicken (a whole roaster, rinsed well. Brush it with melted butter, then spice it up well, and let it cook all day on low again).

    Don't ever open the lid on your crockpot, or it'll take much longer to cook. That's the number one rule. And if you start things in the morning on low, they'll be ready for dinner and falling off the bone. I always try to use low, and not the high setting. High with meat will tend to make it tough.
