Crock pot recipe

Any good crock pot recipes or casserole recipes that you don't have the 2 steps of precooking the meat. I want the easy ones where you just cook it longer and the meat cooks with the meal.....:)

  • I cook a lot in my crock pot, especially this time of year. One of the ones my kids love the most is this: Put boneless chicken breast, two cans of cream of mushroom soup, sliced mushrooms, two cups of milk, grated parm cheese, and some garlic salt in the crock pot. Cook it for like 6-8 hours and then serve it over baked potatoes.

  • Join Crockpot Moms here on CM. They have a TON of recipes!!
    One I did recently was put some chicken breasts in the crockpot, and cover with cream of mushroom (or chicken!) soup. Add a little milk if you wish. Cook low for 7 hours. Take some buscuits (like pilsbury grands in the refrigerated section), rip them up and add them on top. Cook 1 more hour, and viola!! Chicken and dumplings.

  • That is a good group .There is a website called 365 days of Slow Cooking.I like it because for most recipes there is little pre-cooking.Just do the prep chopping onions or whatever dump it in and you are done.She also describes the effort,who and why the food was or wasn't liked by her family.She even describes her flops and why they flopped.She just had her cookbook published it is at B&N but I just use the website for the recipes.I put some chicken breasts,large red potatoes and Mojo marinade and let it cook all afternoon.Had corn and salad everyone loved it.I put extra chicken in and made shredded chicken tacos 2 nights later .All yummy

  • I agree with the chicken and cream of mush soup. You can also do some chicken with a jar of spaghetti sauce, can of diced tomatoes, and some garlic/seasonings of your choice. Cook on low for like 6-8 hours.

    We also make bbq beef sandwiches in the crock pot--just throw the roast in the pot w/about 1C beef broth. Cook 6-8 hours on low until meat can be pulled apart with fork. I don't put the bbq sauce in the crock pot b/c then I can give the kids plain sandwiches or put bbq sauce on it. Or, I can use the left over meat for something else, like tacos.

  • Heat the oil in a skillet (I do this all in the crockpot) and saute the onion, celery, jalapeno pepper, and red or green pepper and chili powder for a few minutes until onion and celery are tender but still firm. Transfer the mixture to the crockpot. Add the lentils, tomatoes, water, soy sauce, mustard and sugar. Add pepper. Stir. Add the salt at the end, this
    keeps the lentils from taking long to cook and becoming tough. Cover the crockpot, set it on low and cook for 7-8 hours. Or 1 hr on high and 6-7 on low. Serve on whole wheat buns and have a lot of napkins

  • Tuna casserole is's just tuna, cream of mushroom soup, canned peas, pasta, cheddar cheese, and either crushed ritz crackers or those little french friend onions...oh, and maybe milk. I googled the recipe today, actually, to learn how to make it. :)
