@IowaDDS13:  Oooh, I’m commenting on here just to piggy back off your post!  I got a crock pot for our wedding and I’m SO excited to use it!

My husband and I made this chili last weekend and it was fabulous! I just browned the ground beef and cooked the onion, then put all ingredients into the crockpot for 8-12 hours on low. Also, I only used half the amount of tomato sauce and added a can of diced tomatoes.

@VAwife:  I seem to have (inadvertently) found you on another thread! I have an outstanding pulled pork crock pot recipe…I just made it Monday!


3lb (makes about 10-15 sandwiches) boneless boston butt pork roast (it’s not really the butt, it’s the shoulder)

20oz Root Beer

Onion Powder

Garlic Powder

Minced Garlic

Black Pepper

Bay leaves


Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce

Place roast in crock pot and pour in root beer. Season with spices…about 4-5 shakes of each, 3-4 bay leaves, and a good sized spoonful of the garlic. Cook on low for about 8 – 9 hours. Remove pork. Discard liquid. Place pork back in crock pot and shred with forks. Stir in BBQ sauce to taste.

This recipe is amazing….and don’t worry, it’s not going to actually taste like root beer! :c)

@VAwife:   I usually just throw the pork in with some water and chunks of onion, cook it on low while I’m at work, when I get home I shred the pork, mix it up with sweet baby rays bbq sauce, toss is back in the crock pot to warm back up, and serve on rolls!

I LOVE mac and cheese in the crockpot. A neighbor made this for a get together and it was amazing. I’m doing it in 2 weeks for a bridal shower:

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni 4 Tbls butter 2 1/2 c grated sharp cheddar cheese 1/2 c sour cream 1(10 3/4) oz. can condensed cheddar cheese soup 1/2 teas. salt 1 c whole milk 1/2 teas. dry mustard 1/2 teas. black pepper

Boil the macaroni in water for six min. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. In slow cooker combine cheese mixture, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper. Add the drained macaroni and stir. Cook on low for 2 1/2 hrs., stirring occasionally.


This is excellent for BBQ’s or winter get togethers. It was a hit at the last party I went to with it.

I also throw boneless/skinless chicken breasts in with a jar of salsa (mix in some water) and my “taco seasoning” mixture (a bunch of spices basically) and leave it on for the day. I then shred the chicken and use it for all sorts of things (tacos, quesodillas, burritos, etc).

crockpot huli huli chicken!! soooo good! this is how I make it:

Huli Huli Chicken (crockpot)

2-3 lbs chicken, boneless skinless thighs or breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup yoshida sauce (tariyaki)
1/2 cup ginger ale
1 tbls garlic
4 tsp ginger or 1/2 inch or so fresh Ginger root
1/4 cup katsup
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp sherry

Cook in crock pot all day

I serve it over steamed rice, and I usually make a simple macaroni salad to go with it, because that’s how the hawaiian restaurant in my town serves it.

@Natakie16:  I just made that cacciatore recipe last week! So good, and the leftovers froze really well (had them tonight for dinner). Delish!
