Crockpot recipes?

Hello all -

Just a quick post to ask y'all to share any crockpot recipes you use regularly and like - there are tons of recipes out there, but where to begin - it'd be great to use our crockpot a little more, especially on days we have to get out for piano lessons or doctor appointments.

Please share!!

I have one to share:


2 1/2 to 3 lb. roast (eye of round is good)
1 onion chopped

1 cup catsup
2 T. brown sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
2 T. cider vinegar

Put roast in crock pot. Place chopped onion on top. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over meat and onion. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 to 9 hours). The sauce should be served over the meat.

I took this dish to Tidewater PB church and a member who works loved it and wanted the recipe. It's easy to have supper ready when she has had a long day at work.

Hi Catherine!

I am a good friend of Rebekah's and I follow your blog off of her page. First, congrats on Miss Baby...she is adorable! I have a 4 mo old baby girl myself. Anyway, I thought I would share with you my most favorite and easiest crockpot recipe EVER. Put as many chicken tenders or chicken breasts as you want in the bottom of the crockpot. Cover with 1-2 cans of cream of celery soup [for our family of four, I only have to use 1 can, y'all might do better with 2]. Then add a pinch of salt and pepper and about 2 tsp of basil. I cook this on high for about 3-4 hours and it makes the most delicious chicken and sauce that I serve over most anything like pasta, rice or couscous, My 2 yr old loves it!

God Bless,
Melanie Hodges

I also make roast in the crockpot but use only a bag of Lipton onion soup mixed with water to pour over the top. Add carrots,potatoes, and onion (or not) a couple hours before dinner and wala!

Stew meat with any veggies (canned,frozen,fresh)salt and water, of course! This is one of my favorites!

How about browned ground beef, sauteed onioins(or not)a can of nacho cheese soup,a can of enchalada sauce, a can of cr. mushroom soup,a can of green chilies. Throw in some quartered tortillas (I like corn) about an hour before you serve it. Top with sourcream and Presto!

Cabbage, potatoes, and beef smoked sausage (the kind that comes in a horseshoe shape) with some celery seed is good if your tastebuds are feeling German. Bread and butter is a good side.

Beans or fifteen bean soup.

This is my favorite. Stew meat, chopped onion and beef boulion. Cooked all day served over rice with this sauce
In food processer add garlic, lime juice, jalapeno, beef boulion (disolved in hot water) and a bit of the broth from the meat (you want to keep it somewhat concentrate) blend. I just taste and make sure it tates EVEN, we don't want one ingrediant to feel jelous. But if you like more or less of something,well its your house... This is a bit spicy and GUARENTEED to keep away the vampires. (I am refering of course to the garlic breath that is this dishs (' ?) only drawback. You can make a variation with no peppers for the little ones. We call it Feta.

One more idea. For a quick morning put on slow cook oatmeal (or any hot cereal) when you go to bed and breakfast is a breeze.
I've yet to try this breezy breakfast (I've only just heard of it) but I imagine once I start it may be a nightly ritual.

Sorry my proportions are so vauge. I rarely measure unless its something new to me. With the crockpot I say just do what looks good.
Hope this helps.

Just found your site and was scrolling through previous blogs, came upon this one and had to post my favorite and easiest CP recipe.

Yummy ribs...

4-6 oz. ribs (can be have bones or be boneless, won't matter though b/c these b/c so tender if they have bones the bones will fall right off!)
8 oz. coke (any dark soda will work, I'm not sure about "diet" colas though)
1 cup of ketchup

mix the coke and ketchup, put ribs in crockpot and cover with mixture.

cook on high 2 hours, then turn to low for 4 hours.
