I make a great BBQ pulled pork recipe – perfect for football Sunday or any day! 


Pork tenderloin, Rootbeer, GOOD BBQ Sauce (I love Sweet Baby Rays)


Season pork tenderloin with pepper, garlic powder, onion poweder and whatever else you want toss in there.  Place in crockpot and add rootbeer. 

Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until tenderloin is shredable.  Dump out rootbeer, shred tenderloin and put back in crockpot. Add BBQ sauce and cook on high for another 30 minutes or so.  Serve up on toasted buns.

Yesterday I made a “rotisserie” chicken in the crock pot…put baby red potatoes in the bottom of the crock, then put a whole chicken on top and plugged the thing in! No water or any other liquid needs to be added, the chicken produces enough juices on it’s own.

That’s it! I did season my chicken first, forgot to mention that.

After 8 hours of cooking on low I somehow managed to get the chicken out without falling apart and put it under the broiler for a couple minutes to crisp up the skin. It was soooo tasty and easy!

I really like the chicken & dumplings mentioned above. I’ve modified that recipe a bit (added some veggies). Also, coat your “dumplings” in flour before putting them in, that way the don’t stick together or dissolve.

Also good: http://fakeginger.com/2010/02/08/bourbon-chicken/


http://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/2009/03/day-56-tomato-basil-parmesan-soup.html (requires some work after, also has a stovetop recipe)

I make chili in mine too. Oh, and sloppy joe mix.

1 lb ground beef, browned in a pan with the onion & garlic, then drained before adding

2 cans beans, rinsed

1 can corn

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can tomato paste (or, in a pinch, consensed tomato soup)

1/2 an onion, diced (or some minced onion flakes)

1 clove garlic, mined (or ~ 1tsp garlic powder)

chili powder




If it seems too thin, right before I serve, I add a little corn meal. Flour works too, but corn meal seems to be better. I cook on low for 4-5 hours, but longer wouldn’t hurt.


Also, if I have a recipe that calls for cooked chicken (enchiladas, cobb salad), I just put frozen chicken in my crockpot, cover with water and cook for a few hours. It shreds perfectly. Do NOT cook broccoli cheese soup in your crockpot, the broc disinigrates 🙁

@Mrs.Camera:  That cream cheese chicken chili is probably one of my favorite recipes. It is so easy, SO loves it and I don’t have to do anything other than open the stuff up.

@arsing89:  i second this one. i made it this past week. so so good.

we also like these:

and i make “chicken ranch tacos” as well-

  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, thawed
  • 1 packet dry ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 packet taco seasoning
  • a couple teaspoons of water/chicken broth 

cook 8 hours on low. i shred chicken after 8 hours, then let the liquid soak into the chicken. i serve it in tortillas with taco toppings, but it works well in taco shells as well.
