I love making tomatoe sauce and meatballs in the crockpot. Make the meatballs and sauce like you normally would, and then let it cook on low heat for 6-8 hours. The sauce is delish and the meatballs are nice and moist 🙂

lancashire hot pot:

place a layer of onions and peas at the bottom, followed by a layer of potatoes, followed by a layer of lamb steaks, continue this until you are about 3/4 the way full.

either make a simple lamb stock using cubes or ready made or you can just use water-pour over the lamb and potatos until maybe half full and cook on low for about 6- hours.

Absolutely delicious. remove the lid and place under the grill on oven for about 10 mins at the end to crisp the top layer of potato.

My favo pulled pork:

 

– Pork (any cut, any size)

– Root beer (Cover the pork with rootbeer)

– Cook on low 6-8 hours.  Remove pork, drain all but a little of the juice/root beer.  Shred pork with 2 forks.  Add pork & your choice BBQ back into crock pot with remaining juice.  Mix.  Cook on low an additional hour… YUM!!

 

 

Also, my 3 packet pot roast:

 

– Beef (I honestly use whatever is on sale, haha)

– 1 packet Zesty Italian dressing mix, 1 packet Ranch mix, 1 packet brown gravy mix

– Potatoes, carrots, any other veggies you want

 

Mix packets together and rub on both sides of beef.  Add 1 1/2 cup cater to the crock pot (I always mix in whatever is left from the packets, too).  Plop in beef, potatoes, carrots, etc.  Cook on low 6-8 hours.  When there is about an hour left, I add another 1/2 to 1 cup of water (depending on the meat weight) so that the packets don’t make the meat too salty.  That part is probably optional.

 

I seriously cannot wait to bust out the crock pot on the regular once fall hits!!  I’m a 2 or 3 time a week gal! 😉

I have two that I make a lot.  I have picky eaters and they all eat seconds!

 

Mexican Shredded Chicken

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts (I buy whatever is on sale)

1 can Rotel cilantro lime tomatoes

1 package taco seasoning

 

Place chicken in the crockpot.  Cover with tomatoes and taco seasoning.  Cook for 8-10 hours.  Usually I will put it on when I leave for work and it’s done when I get home. When chicken is done, shred with two forks (it just falls apart) and stir.

We use this for tacos, burritos, on nachos, quesadillas…whatever.  It is REALLY good.  If you don’t like cilantro, you can use a different flavor of Rotel.

 

Pepsi Pot Road

1 3 pound beef roast

1 1 pound bag of baby carrots

4-6 potatoes (depending on size), peeled and cut up (redskin are nice because you don’t have to peel)

1 package dried french onion soup mix

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can of Pepsi or Coke 

Place the carrots in the bottom of the crock pot in an even layer.  Put roast on top of carrots.  Cover roast with cream of mushroom soup (do not add water/milk) and onion soup mix.  Place potatoes around the roast (just as many as can fit..depends on the size of your crockpot — I use a big oval one).  Cover with a can or two of Coke/Pepsi.  

Cook on low OVERNIGHT.  It will smell good in the morning, but won’t really be ready to eat until dinnertime.  The roast will be tender, moist and falling apart.

Salsa Chicken

1 lb chicken breast

1 c. salsa

1 package taco seasoning

1 can cream of mushroom soup

 

Place the chicken in first then add the rest.  Cook for 8 – 10 hours.  You can serve it with rice but I usually get tortillas and make little burritos with green peppers, opnion, ets.  Every one that has tried it loves it and it is super easy.  Yum!

I made this last night and it was delicious! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/slow-cooker-chicken-and-dumplings/detail.aspx

I modified the recipe slightly from the original based on the comments people had left in reviews.

I used 3 lbs of chicken tenderloins, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, the butter, chicken broth instead of water, and a few chicken boullion cubes to help bring out the chicken flavor more.  I also added some parsley, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper.  This cooked on low for ~8 hours then I added the dumplings. I just used one roll of biscuits and I flattened them and cut them into strips (~5 per biscuit).  I wanted to make sure they cooked all the way through.  I added these to the top but didn’t mix them in; I just pushed them down into the liquid.  I turned the crockpot to high at this point and in 2 hours, it was done.  The chicken absolutely fell apart and the whole things was really good!

@Neva:  Do you continue cooking the Pepsi pot roast through the day on low as well?
