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!!

Barbeque-style Chicken in a crockpot


2 medium unpeeled potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 large green sweet pepper, cut into strips

1 medium onion, sliced

1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca

2 pounds chicken thighs or drumsticks, skinned and fat removed

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

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.

2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.

3. Transfer chicken and vegetables to a large serving bowl. Skim fat from sauce. Spoon sauce over chicken and vegetables. Makes 4 to 5 servings. Prep: 25 minutes Cook: 10 to 12 hours (low), 5 to 6 hours (high)


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.

Crockpot Brunswick Stew

Cooking on LOW heat for a long time makes the meat extremely tender, so it shreds easily; HIGH heat yields a less tender product.

  • 3 pounds boneless pork loin roast

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce

  • 1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth

  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen baby lima beans, thawed

  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen corn, thawed

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

Trim roast and cut into 2-inch pieces. Stir together all ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker.

Cover and cook on LOW 10 to 12 hours or until fork-tender. Remove pork with a slotted spoon, and shred. Return shredded pork to slow cooker, and stir well. Ladle stew into bowls.
