    A friend of mine cooks alot of stuff in her crock pot. Stuff peppers, even meatloaf. I cook pork roast with cream of mushroom soup and potatoes, onions and carrots. Very tasty.

    I only use mine about once a year! Always on Christmas! Last year I made chili and this year I made stew.

    I used to put in a whole fryer and dump in a bottle of bar-b-que sauce and let it cook all day. Falls apart and makes great sandwiches.

    I'll keep watching to see what others come up with!

    I would like to use a lot as you can dump the stuff in and forget about it.

    There used to be a great book called One Pot Recipes in Ten minutes or soemthing like that, garage sales usually have lots of crock pot recipe books from the 1960's and Thrift Stores.

    Those packs of fifteen bean soup "tubes" work really well. As an aside I make this great bread pudding in the microwave. Just tear up buttered bread and put in pyrex bowl, whisk up one(or two) eggs and some milk and sugar and pour over the bread and squish down, add raisins and stir in too or anything. Micro till it looks firm, usually about 15mins, upend bowl on plate and serve with anything you like-I like vanilla icecream and have the pudding stay hot.

    That reminds me I make all of my stocks in crock pot and then freeze them for later use. Just through in any carcass and chopped veggies and water and leave to simmer all day.

    Busy Day Beef Stew 12/18/05 03:23 AM

    Heres a great recipe for the crock pot.

    2 pds stewing meat
    2 med. size onions diced
    1 cup chopped celery
    4 med. sized potatoes diced
    2 1/2 tbls.quick cooking tapioca (or 1 1/4 tbls of cornstarch)
    1tbls sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 can (10 3/4 ounce size)condensed tomato soup
    1 1/2 cans of water

    layer the meat and vegtables in a slow cooker. Sprinkle with the tapioca, sugar, salt, and pepper. Combine the soup and water and pour into the cooker. Do not stir. Cover and cook on the low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
    I use 1/2 the amount in cornstarch instead of the quick cooking tapioca. I never have that in my cupboard.

    If they had an icon that had it's tongue hanging out and drooling that would be me!! I looked up some more crock pot recipes on the internet, wow!! I didn't realize there were so many different things to cook that way. Yummmm

    k pot b-b-q country ribs... 12/18/05 12:28 PM

    3 to 6 pounds boneless country ribs (get the leanest ones you can find)

    1 very large yellow onion, sliced thin

    1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce

    Put ribs in Crock-Pot, cover with onions, pour sauce over top, cover, cook on low 8 to 12 hours.

    Yield: Serves 4 to 12 depending on amount of meat used and appetites.

    Nutrition information: Could not be determined due to variations in the amount of meat used and the type of barbecue sauce used.

    "I sometimes thicken the sauce with cornstarch, but not always. I like to try different kinds of sauce.

    t Holiday Ham! 12/18/05 01:11 PM

    Title: Honey Glazed Holiday Ham
    Categories: Crockpot, Meats
    Yield: 12 Servings

    4 lb Ham; boneless, fully cooked
    1 cn Lemon-lime soda; 12 oz,
    1/4 c Honey
    1/2 ts Mustard
    1/2 ts Cloves; ground
    1/4 ts Cinnamon; ground

    Place ham and lemon-lime soda into crock pot. If your pot has a rack, you can use it. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours (high 3 to 4 hours).

    Thirty minutes before serving, combine honey, mustard, cloves, and cinnamon, and 3 tbs drippings from bottom of crock pot. Spread glaze over ham and continue cooking.

    Let ham stand for 15 minutes before serving.

    This sounds yummy, I'm going to try it. I'll bet you could do an apple crisp too, just substitute canned apple pie filling for the cherry, whadya think?

    Maybe I'll try that variation too and let ya know.

    I'll bet vanilla ice cream go good on that too.

    I don't use mine very much, but I should. So, I'm interested in these recipes, too!!

    When I worked, I would put a whole chicken in it (on LOW) and pour a can of Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup on top. Do not dilute the soup--as it cooks, it will make its own gravy!


    Forgot to mention .... it usually cooked for 12 hours, because that is how long I was gone from home when I worked.[This Message was Edited on 12/29/2005]

    Some pork ribs sauerkraut tart apples caraway seeds and some brown sugar.

    Put layer ribs then apple then kraut then seeds and sugar repeat .

    Cook on high 10 min then lowest setting all day .

    They will melt in your mouth.

    They also fall apart.

    You can do the same with pork roast My DH would eat this every day. Lol

    Put a pork roast in the pot and cover it with sauerkraut. Cook on low for 12 hours. We add a dash of garlic salt. This is great over mashed potatoes...a German dish, I think.

    Back when I was working and could eat wheat I used to make this for dinner quite often.

    Put a bag of seasoned stuffing mix in the crock pot with the proper amount of water. Lay a couple of chicken breasts on top. I'd turn it on low when I left for work, and dinner would be ready when I got home. Sure liked the stuffing.

    I thought it said "Crackpot receipes".

    Well, I use the crock pot a lot. The receipes are all the same. You throw meat, vegtables, and potatoes in the crockpot. If you want you add water, soup, gravy etc. You come back in 8 or ten hours and it's ready.
