crock pot recipes?

I ordered a crock pot in the mail, it should be here next week. It's getting cold in NY and I want to make some yummy warm recipes for myself and my 1 year old. Does anyone have any good recipes or know of a site where they have crock pot recipes? I'm allergic to seafood and rarely eat pork and don't eat any animal that has been in a early 1900 disney movie lol. I'm a chicken, turkey, beef woman.

  • There are many things I' ve seen cooked in crockpot. I probably would try a stew or pot roast in one since they take time and need to be slow cooked anyway.

  • There are some crock-pot specialty cook-books that have some cool stuff. I like to make slow cooked soups, shredded pork or turkey roast (for tamales or BBQ sandwiches), and especially Pot Roast!

    My pot roast recipe is very simple. That's why I use it a lot.
    5 lb roast or so (I have a big one)
    Rub with crushed or minced garlic. Sprinkle with cracked pepper, salt, and rosemary leaves. Put some extra peppercorns in the pot. Ad just a little water or cooking wine to the bottom (maybe 1/2 cup). Throw in 3 or 4 boullion cubes. This is my secret weapon part!
    Cook on low all day long until meat falls apart. The natural juices should have made quite a lot of liquid by now. If not, add a little water until it is where you like it.

    Good luck with your new toy! Have lots of fun and experiment.

  • The easiest one of all is chicken breasts with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup. You just let it cook all day, those two ingredients, then eat it with mashed potatoes when it's done, using the soup as gravy. My husband loves it. Another easy one is chicken breasts, a bottle of bbq sauce, and a can of Coke. I made it the other day and put in on buns for bbq chicken sandwiches. It was really good,actually. :)
