Have you tried roasting a chicken in your crockpot...or a pot roast or bbq or country style ribs?

I've done a whole chicken fryer in mine, (oval style) I put in with a jar of salsa, a can of diced tomatoes, garlic cloves, cumin, oregano, chili powder, bay leaf, salt and pepper. I put on in in the morning, when I get home from work, I add a drained can of black or pinto beans for a chili chicken that just falls apart. Serve over noodles or rice.

CROCK POT PIZZA

1 1/2 lb. hamburger (browned & drained)
2/3 of 16 oz. box spiral macaroni (cooked & drained)
2 (12 oz.) pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 sm. can mushrooms (chopped & drained)
1 c. chopped onion
2 (16 oz.) cans pizza sauce
1 (3 oz.) pkg. pepperoni

Combine in a big pot everything but cheese and pepperoni. Layer this and cheese and pepperoni in a crock pot. Finish with cheese and pepperoni on top. Cook on low temperature for 5 hours. Serves 8.

I spotted this on a search and thought it sounded good but not a "dump and go" recipe. I wonder if the pasta would overcook?
Anyone do anything similar?

chuck roast with onions, stewed tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and potatos. Makes its own gravy. Mix some corn starch mixure in to thicken.

I've done pork picnic, boneless ribs, pot roast, beef brisket, and a corned beef brisket in mine.(as well as chili!!)

The family LOVES the corned beef fixed in there instead of doing the old "boiled dinner" thing with the corned beef, cabbage and other veteables. Comes out much more flavorful that way! I start mine EARLY in the am on high, like as soon as the kids are off to school! ( need make sure everything is cooked nicely by dinner time!)

That reminds me...some female chef on food network just did a Morocan Style beef brisket in her slow cooker. Sorry I can not remember her name. You may be able to find the exact recipe on food networks's recipe site.


She seasoned the brisket with a "rub" made with sea salt, pepper, coriander, and cumin. Then let that rest for about 20 min. She then added potatoes, carotts, red onion, and apricots to the meat and topped it off with a bottle of red wine. Cooked on high (for like 7 hours) and served it with jasmin rice or cous cous.

Dug the Crock-pot out earlier this week to do a potroast.
Going to experiment a bit today with it.

6 frozen boneless chicken thighs
a packet of taco seasoning
a cup or so of medium salsa
chopped bell pepper
chopped onion

I'll toss in some chopped olives too..
We'll see how it all comes out in 8 hours....

Now if I can figure out how to do jerk chicken in the slow cooker...hmmm I have all-spice somewhere...

I think pulled pork is best over 10 or more hours...start on high for about 2 hours then turn to low for the next 8. (And if there is enough liquid I'd let it go longer.

Pulled pork is big down south, or at least in NC. I had it for the first time just a couple years ago. Much different taste than our traditional, New York pig roasts.

Either of those is great but I have to tell you my mom made some recently that used ROOT BEER as the liquid! Now, I don't like rootbeer at all but this was absolutely incredible. The pork was tender and soooooooooooooooo flavorful.

The bf asked and asked for a recipe his Mom used to make. It was pork chops in a slower cooker with "a spaghetti sauce". I googled and found some, but decided to wing it.
Here is my experimental recipe:

5 good size regular cut chops

1 can stewed tomatoes

1 can tomato sauce

about a quarter cup each chopped bell pepper and white onion, sauteed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Italian seasoning and garlic (to your tatse, I add a few dashes to the sauteed veggies and also to the sauce

salt and pepper to taste

put on crock pot on high for two hours and then for another 4 (check chops for to make sure cooked fully).

Serve with mashed potatoes on side and a veggie.


I was weary of how this would taste, but it actually was very good.

*For a thicker sauce add in a can of tomato paste with a couple pinches of sugar.

Pork cooked with beer is always great! Seriously. I always use beer in my stew, too. Used to use red wine (well sometimes I still do) but the beer is a great mix, especially if I also make beer-batter bread to go with \:\)

I made Reilley's recipe yesterday and today, the leftovers are being turned into chicken stew. I added minced garlic, onion and some green peppers to the original recipe and doubled the soup. It was yummy.

I find freshly caught and skinned badger to be quite tastefull if cubed and combined with sliced carrots, whole potato and an added dash of salt amid several hard shakes of black pepper.

Ahhhhhhhh...very easily. Prepare the chicken just like you would for roasting in the oven, though you shouldn't use a stuffing other than some veggies, garlic and maybe 1/2 a lemon (juice squeezed over the top of the bird. Then I line the bottom of the crock pot with carrot and celery sticks, maybe some garlic, some sliced onion and a bay leaf and/or some fresh herbs. Then add just a little water (or broth or wine), not enough to cover the veggies but enough to cover the bottom of the pot. Set the chicken on top of all that cover with the lid and set it on high for about 2 hours then turn to low for about 4-6 depending on the size of the bird. If you don't have a timer that will tackle that task, try to start the bird on high about an hour before you leave for work (make sure it's at room temp when you begin) and turn it to low for the remainder of the day.

That's about it. A lot of that is just adding in what you like. BTW I like to take the veggies and any liquid in the bottom of the crock pot and put them through the blender (remove the bay leaf if you use it) and use that as a sauce. YUM!

I am going to be brave and try a whole chicken in the crock pot. I put some of the marinade under the skin and just rubbed the rest on top of it. I used rosemary, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. And I also put fresh rosemary, thyme, and lemon inside the bird. We'll see how it comes out. I put it in at 3:30, it is on high for now, and then I will turn it down around 5:00. I'm making one today for my grandparents to eat tomorrow, and then I'm going to try another for us tomorrow night. Hopefully it turns out good.

I bought two yesterday at Urban Sun around 3:00 pm. They must have put more out?

Also, the one I made yesterday didn't brown? WIll it brown in the crockpot or should I just throw it in the oven for 15 minutes?

I ended up putting my chicken, very carefully, in the oven and broiled it for a few minutes. Skin came out brown and crunchy! I have to say this is hands down, the best chicken I have ever had.

Well, it's just me here now so mine doesn't really get much of a work out...

I probably need something somewhat smaller than 6 quart!

HP, don't get rid of the 6 quart too soon - you'll still have company or family gatherings - plus so many recipes call for the larger size. You can always freeze the extra, but I'd invite people in. \:\)

I am down to only a 3 and a 3.5 quart because my big one died, so I am looking for a replacement - I am thinking of getting that one that you can change the crock size in - Then it would be useful for cooking for any size!

It's cheaper to cook using a crock pot than either an electric or gas oven.

SR, you're probably right...and I DO love to cook for other people.

So, who makes one that changes sizes? I've not heard of this creature before but it sounds like a useful bit of equipment to have!

I tried the chicken and dumpling reciepe from this site. I messed it up. I thought it said a tablespoon of poultry seasoning and it was a tsp. Over kill. YUK. Now I'm trying to fix it.

But I'm thinking if I did it again like that, I'd use 2 cans of soup, and 2 cans of mushroom and a large onion.

The chicken falls right apart and you have enough sauce for the noodles. (depending on how many noodles you make).

Adding a little bit of mixed veggies would set this off too.

I'll toss in some chopped olives too..
We'll see how it all comes out in 8 hours....

Now if I can figure out how to do jerk chicken in the slow cooker...hmmm I have all-spice somewhere...


I made this today..I added cheddar cheese and black beans and it is awesome!

That sounds really good. I use black beans and navy beans, don't care for kidney beans.
In Sept. at my sailing club we have this neat party. dubbed the "Chili Regatta" sailors from several states travel to the club to race, and also bring their favorite chili in a crock...after the race we get to sample about 20 different types of chili...all are fantastic!

Today was a perfect day to cook. I really didn't cook all summer. Today I made an awesome tater salad and the chicken. Amazing what a few degrees will do!

I normally do not enjoy cooking, but do like it a little better when it's not hot and humid. I grill out just about every night even in winter.
We have a nice garden and I like the things I can make with all the fresh veggies!

I just found this site last week. I love the layout, etc.

http://www.50plusfriends.com/cookbook/crockpot/index-5b.html

There are 3 pumpkin recipes under "Desserts" and a couple bread recipes under "Miscellaneous."

Happy Crockpot cooking!

Dug out the crockpot and got a beef stew started this morning. No recipe used but I'm keeping track of what I did. We'll see how it comes out.. \:\)

OK, I wasn't happy with it last time. Which is why I didn't post a recipe. I'm remaking it this weekend and tweaking it as shown below. The flavor profiles were good but came out too thin before so I'm increasing the veg ammounts and decreasing the broth as shown below. Other than prebrowning the meat, which I believe is important for flavor, it's a basic "dump it in" and go crockpot recipe.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 to 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup all-purpose flour for dredging beef
1/4 cup cornstarch or flour for thickening
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 medium onion, quartered
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3 potatoes, cubed into roughly 1" pieces.
1/2 bag of baby carrots,(about 2 cups)
1 stalk celery, chopped

Directions:

1. Add 1/2 of the carrots, celery and potatoes to slow cooker.

2. Dredge the beef pieces in flour.

3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add cooking spray or some oil. Sear beef until lightly brown. Do this in two batches, don't crowd the pan. Add browned beef to slow cooker.

4. Add the remaining vegetables to the slow cooker.

5. Cook the tomato paste in the skillet, just stir to cook a bit. Add broth to the pan – loosen up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan, (deglaze).

6. Add deglazed broth to slow cooker with bay leaf, herbs and seasoned salt. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours, until beef and vegetables are tender.

8. Combine cornstarch and water, and stir into stew. If stew thickens immediately, season to taste and serve anytime. Otherwise, turn heat to high and cook stew an additional 30 minutes.

I made a pork loin with sauerkraut a couple of weeks ago. Took about a 4lb pork loin and a bag of kraut, added about 1/4 cup brown sugar and let it cook for, I want to say, about 6 hours. I think I put the potatoes in half way. It was really tasty.
