Anything from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.
post #602 of 700
Well I have a big family of eight kids, two adults and a grandpa to cook three meals a day for so my crockpots are my best friends. I like to do at least one item a day in there and sometimes two or three.

My biggest challenge lately has been meat because all that is on sale is pork butt roasts at 99 cents a pound and then beef roasts at $1.99 a pound or whole chickens at .69 cents a pound. So these are the meats I have to work with most of the time and make it seem like we are having something different every night LOL.

My favorite for the beef when I'm in a hurry is to put it in the pot with one can cream of mushroom soup and a few tablespoons of onion soup mix. I buy it in bulk but you could use one envelope with a little water. I let it cook all day and then slice the beef and thicken the liguid with a little flour. Good with potatoes, rice or noodles. Salt and pepper to taste.

I can also take any roast and put it in all day with a few tablespoons or an envelope of taco seasoning. Shred and use for a variety of Mexican recipes. I might also add a few cans of green chilis if I have them.

I cook pinto beans that I have soaked with a small pork roast. Mash beans and shred the meat for chalupas or Indian style tacos.

Let a roast cook all day with salt and pepper to taste. Shred the meat and add one bottle BBQ sauce. Use for sandwhiches or serve as is. Cook meat with onions and peppers as desired.

Cut a beef roast into cubes and cook as if for stew. An hour before serving stir in a large can raviolis and some frozen peas, thicken if needed. My kids love this and call it ravioli stew. We do not add any other vegetables to this.

Okay, not original recipe but....

TJ sells a Cabarnet pot roast that's ready for a crockpot. So pick up that, a mire poix mix, and some potatoes. You've got a full meal, provided you can crockpot for more than 6 hours.

Wow... I just finished checking out all pages of this thread!!
I love this thread and I love you all!!!
I cut & pasted about 12 pages of yummy stuff!!

I have a couple more chicken recipes to offer...

Hawaiian Chicken
20 oz can crushed pineapple and juice
1 med. onion, chopped
1 C. ketchup
1 T. mustard
2 T. vinegar
2 T. worcestershire sauce
1/2 C. green and/or red pepper
1 chicken

Combine above ingredients. Cut up chicken and lay in bottom of baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken and cook on low 6-8 hrs or until chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

I haven't included the pepper when I have made it, but it was in the original recipe, so I included it. Also, I use 4-6 chicken breast when I make it, just for convenience, not a whole chicken.

Here is another chicken recipe... I got it from a friend and she said, "I know, the ingredients sound odd together, but trust me, it's soooo good", and it is!! I don't even know what I call it, so let's just call it...

Cranberry Chicken

Put chicken breasts in crock pot (2-3 pounds)

Mix together:
8 oz Creamy French dressing
1 package dry Lipton onion soup mix
1 can jellied cranberries

Pour over chicken, cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

Yummmmmmm

I love MDC I've been trying these recipies for the last week and looooove crock pot cooking! I made the slowcooker lasagna tonight and it is FABULOS!

DH loves the slow cooker pot roast. My fave is the chicken and broccoli. I made the chicken with salsa first and added some chicken bullion in for extra flavor, then at the end instead of dumping the broth I added frozen veggies and used it for veggie soup. My freezer is jam packed with leftovers right now!

I plan on trying some recipies of my own this week, I'll report back with recipies of anything that turns out good.

I have something in the crockpot right now. It's a new recipe, if it turns out well I'll post it (I have my doubts at the moment). I did have two older crock pots that I was using up until I saw the earlier posts about lead in the crock. I swear, everythings out to kill us!

We are in the process of getting a new stove, so I am cooking in the crockpot and grilling intil Thursday. Tonight I made a delicous lentil soup. My two year old even yelled "Nummies Mommy!" so I know it must have been kind of good

Really I just threw together what I had on hand usually I would add celery and onions as well.

Lentil Soup
6 cups of water
2 cups lentil ( I used green)
4 or so carrots sliced
2 tbls better than boullion ( I used chicken)
4 or 6 breakfast sausages cut up
I poured in some salt free spike
cumin to taste
garlic pepper to taste
sea salt to taste

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

LeahC I'm gonna try this like soemone else said with the roast too! I am still working on our pastured cow from the freezer and I'm taking out a couple chunks of meat right now!

That was the recipe from page 31.....the asian pork

I think that's a good idea to reference recipes with their psot number!
