I have a crock pot - I need some ideas for it besides just roast and turkey. Due to health issues we can not have a lot of spice

  • Pork chops are great in the pot with some cream of celery soup. Corned beef is excellent in the crock pot with carrots, celery, onion and potatoes. Chicken breasts with carrots, celery and onion then add to noodles for chicken and noodles ...yummmy

  • throw a whole chicken with some butter and whatever spice you like, let cook all day, meat will be falling off the bones.

  • I love to make veggie soup in the crockpot. I basically clean out the fridge of any fresh veggies I have on hand(carrot, onion, celery, peppers, zucchini, etc) and add stock or boullion cubes, &/or even tomato juice or V-8 to about 2/3 up the side of the pot. Cook on high 3 or 4 hours. You can also add leftover veggies, rice, plain pasta, or even a can of drained beans during the last 30 minutes. Really gets rid of leftovers! Anything goes really - just be carefull with broccoli & cauliflower as it can overpower the rest of the veggies. If it starts to get too thick, just add some water or stock. Don't be afriad to experiment with soups, you really can't go wrong. If you get a chance, go to the library & check out the Fix-it & Forget-it Cookbook - TONS of good recipes!

  • This is great served with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice.
    Swiss Steak
    1 lb. round steak
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons oil or butter
    4 oz. tomato sauce
    1 onion, sliced
    1 green pepper, sliced
    Cut steak into serving portions. Combine flour, salt, and black pepper in medium-size bowl. Roll cut steaks in flour mixture, coating both sides. Melt oil or butter in a hot skillet. Brown round steak on both sides, but do not cook. Place in crock pot and add tomato sauce, onion, and green pepper. Cook on low for 6 to 12 hours (high up to 6 hours).
