This is a fabulous thread.

What a great idea to C&P them & then print them out. It can be our own personal mdc crockpot recipe book!

I've also found that many crock pot recipes translate well into a pressure cooker. I find that sometimes I can't get it together soon enough in the morning to do the crock, but I can pop it all in the pc in the afternoon & still have a pretty effortless one-pot meal in less than an hour.

Korean Ribs

2 Cups soy sauce
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup sesame oil
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
8-10 cloves of fresh garlic, crushed
6 large green onions, chopped roughly
1 big tbsp mustard powder (less, if you get the good stuff)
4 pounds Korean-style short ribs (any ribs will do, if they're individual)

Toasted sesame seeds

Combine the soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and other oil in a large mixing bowl. Add garlic and green onion and stir together. Put short ribs into large sealable freezer bag (you may need two). Pour marinade into bag and turn bag over several times to ensure all meat pieces are covered. Refrigerate for at least four hours, but preferably overnight. Turn bag at least once in the middle of the marinating process.

Crock pot on low for ~8 hours. Devour in a frenzy of sticky endorphin-releasing goodness.

Does anyone know of a recipe for delicious but very basic whole chicken cooked in the crockpot?

Ages ago I was looking at some on a recipe site but they got such extremely mixed reviews I had no idea what to try. I guess the challenge is for it to be moist after cooking. I have some health issues so I just want to keep the ingredients very simple.

I just throw a whole chicken rubbed w/ some poultry seasoning in the crock-pot w/ a few carrots, onions and potatoes and turn it on low. By the end of the day my house smells yummy and the chicken is even yummier, its super moist and falling off the bone. The left overs are great for chicken salad.

Erin, do you add any liquid? Stock or anything? Heehee, I'm Erin too.

So many great ideas! I am going to try Southwestern Chicken tomorrow night!
I just love the idea of putting everything in the crockpot in the morning and not worrying about dinner for the day! It is such a nice feeling to know it is taken care of and then to smell it cooking all day is even better!!

OK, I haven't read all 18 PAGES!! yet but I hope this helps someone. It's a fantastic time saver.

Throw a little olive oil or butter or whatever in the bottom. Fill the crockpot completely with chopped onions (think Costco!). Leave it on for 4-5 hours. It'll smell wonderful.

Take out your much-reduced sauteed onions and freeze on a shallow baking pan. Take out of freezer, break into chunks, put into ziplock bag.

Now everytime you are making something that calls for 20 minutes of sauteing onions you say "Oh, I love that Literate. She's the best." and take a chunk of your onions out. Granted, you can't be too exact on measurements now, since if your recipe calls for "1 cup onion" it's probably only 1/2 cup now. But who cares.

Rub the chicken inside and out with salt & pepper, put it in the crockpot, add a large can of diced tomatoes, cook on low for 8 hours.

Serve with whole wheat pasta & freshly grated asiago cheese.

Erin, I don't. As the chicken cooks to releases its chicken juices and keeps it moist. BTW the juices leftover at the end make great stock!

Shredded Beef Dip Sandwiches

Put in a crockpot:
2 pounds beef roast (I think we used arm roast), trimmed of fat
about 1 tablespoon minced garlic
1-2 teaspoon thyme
3 bay leaves
4 cups of water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup Worchestshire

Other ingredients:
Mozarella or Provolone cheese

Cook on low for 10 hours (you could probably go shorter). Remove and shred beef.

Put mozarella cheese on rolls, and toast in oven til cheese is melting. Slather with horseradish and add beef
DH, as wonderful as he is, is the pickiest eater known to man. DD has food allergies so she and I are wheat and dairy free. It makes cooking quite a challenge. I made this yesterday with a few modifications and DH loved it. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping find another dinner option!

I made the chicken medoori the other night and it was great. my kids had seconds, they NEVER have seconds!!
