I like to use the mccormick's seasoning packs for beef stew and pot roast, I just follow the directions on the back.
Crock Pot Hawaiian Chicken is a big one here.
In the fall and winter, I use my crock pot a lot more.
Chili, Split Pea Soup, Roast Beef, Beef Stew, Chicken Noodle Soup etc.

I don't have favorite crock pot recipes to post. I don't use mine very often. I basically just do stew, potato soup, or 3 meat chili. Also, just for cooking dried beans. Oh I almost forgot pulled bbq meat.
ITALIAN BEEF COOKED CROCK POT.
I START MY ROAST BEEF THE NIGHT BEFORE, LET IT COOK ON LOW ATLEAT 6-8HRS. YOU WANT IT REALLY TENDER. DRAIN SOME OF THE WATER, ADD AN ONION, S&P THEN PEPERS OF CHIOCE. (I SAY CHIOCE BECAUSE MY FAMILY DOESN'T CARE FOR THE HOT PEPPERS. I FOUND THE BANANA PEPPERS ARE JUST AS GOOD) THEN I ADD ITALIAN DRESSING. COOK ANOTHER HR. & PUT CROCK POT ON WARM. WE EAT IT ON HOG GIE BUNS & ADD MOZZARELLA CHESSE. SO GOOD!!
2 medium unpeeled potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large green sweet pepper, cut into strips

Directions 1. In a 3-1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker place the potatoes, sweet pepper, and onion. Sprinkle tapioca over potato mixture. Place chicken on top of the vegetables. For sauce, in a small bowl stir together tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, and salt. Pour sauce over chicken.

Enjoy your stew.
I made this with some pork that DH had overcooked, and it was really dried out, but I waited until the last hour on low to shred up the pork and add it. I usually add both pork and chicken when I make Brunswick stew, but this was really good.
Cooking on LOW heat for a long time makes the meat extremely tender, so it shreds easily; HIGH heat yields a less tender product.
