Beef Tips!

Get a package of beef tips or stew beef from the meat aisle. Season it with salt and pepper and dump into the crockpot. Add in a big yellow onion, cut into big chunks (so they don’t break down too much while cooking), 2 cans of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup, and 2 soup cans of water. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8, and serve over buttered egg noodles or rice. One of my very favorites.

Here’s our favorite, which we call Ze Meat, but it’s really called Italien Meat Sandwiches:

1 packet Italien dressing

14 oz beef broth

6-10 pound chuck roast

1 jar peppercinis

cucumber, tomato, and whatever sandwich roll you like

Mix the dressing packer and beef broth together in the slow cooker, add the meat, cover with peppercinis. Set on high for 6 hours or low for 12.

I prefer my buns toasted (hehe). Anyway, cut up tomatos and cucumber and use the extra sauce to dip the sandwich if you like. Super yummilicious and easy.

I hope you gals post a lot of recipes.  I love to use my crock pot…especially if there are less than 5 ingredients! 

Here’s one I love:

6 Boneless Chicken Breasts

2 packets of Italian seasoning

1 Jar of Jalepeno’s – BUT only pour the juice in the crockpot!

Heat (stir every now and then) for about 4-6 hours depending on the level of heat.  Shred and serve alone or on a bun.  It’s yummy and great as left-overs for lunch too!

I know this *sounds* crazy, but it’s really good.

Pepsi Pot Roast

1 3-4 pound beef roast

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 packet dry french onion soup mix

1 can (12 oz.) Pepsi (Coke works too)

Put roast in crock pot.  Cover roast with cream of mushroom soup (do not dilute) and then with onion soup mix.   Pour Pepsi over all.  Cook on low at least 12 hours.

I usually put the roast in the crockpot before going to bed and leave it on all night and all the next day and then eat it for dinner.  Though it sounds odd, the Pepsi actually makes a really good gravy and the meat is very moist and tender.   I usually throw a few baby carrots and cut-up potatoes in the crockpot too.

Go to crockpot365.blogspot.com She has AWESOME recipes!!

I like her 20-40 garlic clove chick (surprisingly not garlicy… just oh so yummy and tender)

I also like this recipe from Weight Watchers:




1 spray(s) cooking spray, or enough to coat skillet   


2 cup(s) mushroom(s), coarsely chopped   


1 small onion(s), chopped   


1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced   


1 small sweet red pepper(s), diced   


1 tsp paprika   


3/4 tsp table salt   


1/2 tsp black pepper   


1/2 cup(s) canned chicken broth   


1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast   


1 Tbsp all-purpose flour   


1/2 cup(s) fat-free sour cream   


  • Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat. Add mushrooms, onion, garlic and pepper; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in paprika, salt and pepper; cook 30 seconds more. Spoon mixture into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker; add broth.
  • Cut each chicken breast into 4 long strips; add to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  • Stir together flour and sour cream in a cup; stir into chicken mixture. (Note: We stir flour into the sour cream to prevent the cream from curdling in slow-cooked dishes.) Cover and cook on low until the mixture is thick and hot, about 10 minutes more. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.

Chicken and Bean Tacos

Put a few frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot with a can or two of rinsed pinto beans, a packet of taco seasoning and a jar of salsa.  Cook for 8 hrs on low, shred the chicken, mash the beans, and throw the chicken back in for a delicious taco filling.

French Dips:

3 lb beef roast

2 cans beef broth

2 cups water

2 packets Lipton onion soup mix


First brown the beef on all sides in a skillet (not going to lie, I skip this step if I’m in a rush… the meat is just as good).  Place the beef in the crockpot and cover with all other ingredients.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Shred beef with a fork (like you would to pulled pork).  Put the beef on rolls or sub sandwiches, top with provolone cheese, and broil just until the cheese melts.  Serve with au jus from the crock pot.

I got this recipe from http://www.ourbestbites.com  They have some great stuff!
