    Crockpot recipes

    I thought I'd start a thread just for crockpot recipes.

    I use my crockpot a lot, especially with our crazy busy schedules so I thought it might be easier to have a thread just for the crockpot, so we didn't have to wade through all the recipes to find one to throw in the crockpot when we're trying to get dinner on and out the door in the mornings.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    My favorite crock pot recipe is very simple, and I don't make it often because it's not exactly the healthiest, either.

    Take a boneless pork loin, cover with about 1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce, crock pot it on high all day to make the meat fall into pieces. The meat generates enough juice on its own that you don't need any additional liquid. Serve on buns.

    It makes a mouthwatering pulled pork sandwich.

    For healthy eating, I put in carrots, celery, onions underneath a few chicken breasts. Season with poultry seasoning, or sage, pepper and salt. Add 3/4 broth for a stew, up to 2 cups for a soup.

    Healthy but very boring, so I look forward to some better recipes.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    Okay, I found some recipes I posted previously. The first two were really recent, but I thought I'd put them in here anyway. I've been making a lot of stuff in the crock pot because it tends to not heat the kitchen up as much as the stove or the oven. These first two are super simple and inexpensive too (the other one is pretty cheap as well)
    Smoky Chipotle Cassoulet

    1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cubed
    1 t salt
    1 t ground cumin
    1 bay leaf
    1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced (I removed the seeds because I'm a bit of a wimp with the spicy stuff)
    1 med onion, diced
    1 can (15 oz) navy beans, rinsed and drained
    1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes
    1 1/2 cups chicken stock
    1/2 cup orange juice (the recipe calls for fresh squeezed, but I thought to heck with that!)
    1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

    1. Combine all ingredients, except cilantro, in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 7 or 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours
    2. Remove bay leaf before serving. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
    Easy Crockpot Cassoulet

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    4 boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped
    1/4 pound cooked smoked sausage, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    4 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 tablespoons water
    3 cans (about 15 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
    3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

    Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion to hot oil; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in chicken, sausage, garlic, thyme, and pepper. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, or until chicken and sausage are browned. Stir in tomato paste and water; transfer to slow cooker. Stir great northern beans into the chicken mixture; cover and cook on LOW 4 to 5 hours. Before serving, sprinkle parsley over cassoulet.
    Serves 6.
    I posted this one ages ago in the old recipes thread. It's still one of my favorites and it makes the house smell amazing!
    Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup
    Cook Time: 8 hours

    1 lb boneless round steak, cubed
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
    3C water
    2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
    2 medium onions, diced
    3 celery ribs, sliced
    2 carrots, sliced
    3 beef bouillon cubes
    1/2 t dried basil
    1/2 t dried oregano
    1/2 t salt
    1/4 t pepper
    1 1/2 C frozen mixed vegetables

    In a slow cooker, combine the first 12 ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours.
    Add frozen vegetables; cover and cook on high 2 hours longer or until meat and vegetables are tender.

    Yield: 8-10 servings (about 2 1/2 quarts)
    Hep - that pork sounds delicious! Simple is always good I made some bean soup this week from a mix I got at the Honey Baked Ham store. The recipe is literally something like "put 5 or 6 cups of water, a ham bone and the soup mix and cook for 8-10 hours in the slow cooker" It was fab and lasted me for days!

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    I know it isn't as much a recipe, but man, do I love to put pasta in the slow cooker. After I have cooked my pasta and made my sauce, I just like to keep it on high for about 15-20 minutes to really get the sauce cooked in with the pasta.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    I must have posted this at some point, but my cure-anything veggie soup in a crock pot goes:
    1 can tomato soup
    1 can black beans
    garlic (I use it from a jar)
    spaghetti sauce/salsa (whatever I have open in the fridge)
    chopped onions
    chopped cabbage
    frozen broccoli and peas (and sometimes brussels sprouts or greens)
    water to fill

    Because I always have those ingredients on hand, it takes me 5 minutes to put it together and feeds us all weekend. All my kids love it. If I'm in a hurry I cook the cabbage a little first. This got me through chemo and will cure a cold/flu quickly. When I'm "dieting" I allow myself unlimited quantities so I don't feel desperate.

    I'm also using up stuff in my pantry and have a lot of dried beans, so any dried bean crock pot recipes would be appreciated.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    Mmmm... I love crockpots for throwing together soups like that with what's on hand. Sorry I can't help out with any dried beans recipes - we do a big pot of pinto beans with ham, and eat them with pickled onion and cornbread, but that might be an aquired taste.

    Here is my favorite crockpot recipe:

    Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches
    3 lb. roast (or whatever will fit)
    1 pkg. au jus mix (dry)
    1 pkg. Italian dressing mix (dry)
    1 (10.5 oz) can beef broth
    1 1/2 c. water
    1 green pepper, sliced thin
    1 onion, sliced thin
    hoagie buns (or we like onion rolls)
    swiss cheese, sliced

    Put roast in the crockpot, mix the next 4 ingredients & pour over meat. Cook on low 8-10 hrs. Remove roast, add peppers & onions, and turn on high until peppers just start to get limp (about 25 min.). Remove veggies and set aside. Reserve juice for serving. Pull apart meat and pile it on the buns, top with veggies and cover with cheese. Wrap in foil, and heat in 350 degree oven for 10 min. Serve w/ a cup of juice for dipping. Makes about 8 sandwiches.
    your path is beautiful and crooked and just as it should be

    I've made this cheesy hash brown recipe a couple of times. Its especially good for a gathering, family or crowd. It always gets rave reviews and comments.

    Creamy Cheesy Hash Browns
    1 package (2 pound) frozen cubed hash brown potatoes
    8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
    16 ounces sour cream
    1 can Cream of Celery soup
    1 can Cream of Chicken soup
    1 large onion, chopped
    1/2 cup melted margarine
    1/2 teaspoon pepper

    Place potatoes in an ungreased crockpot. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over the potatoes and mix well. Cover crockpot and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours, until potatoes are tender.
