I need some good, healthy crock pot recipes.
The kids won't eat soup or stew, but vegetarian or meat is fine. Anyone have any good ones to share?

Hi Khris,

I like to make beef brisket in the crock pot. Brisket is tough so you have to marinate it. I marinate it overnight in some chicken broth, Braggs liquid aminos (or soy sauce), a little ketchup, papaya juice, crushed garlic, and black pepper. Then in the morning put the brisket and the marinade in the crock pot on low. I ususally add more marinade to make sure it's sitting in plenty of liquid. Cook it for 5 or 6 hours. It's very tender and delicious. During the marinating you should turn it over so both sides get saturated.

Pinto beans or kidney beans in the crockpot (2 cups beans, 6 cups water), an onion cut up in chunks, several peeled cloves of garlic, and chopped up organic smoked sausage is awesome. You put it in before you go to bed & let it cook on low til dinner the next day. Yummo. When it's done you add salt & spices (I like to use a cajun seasoning) and a dollop of yogurt or sour cream. Yummers.
