my husband likes a milder flav so i would not use some of these

Quoting TerriC:

Believe it or not, this is fairly simple to make and so good. Worth the extra steps for the home made taste. :-)

Pork (Turkey) Sauerkraut

1 large turkey thigh

1 or 2 cans of drained sauerkraut (to taste)

1/2 or 1 onion sliced

1 can of string beans

Combine turkey thigh, sauerkraut, and onion in crock pot.  Cook on low for 8 or more hours.  1/2 hour before serving, lift the lid and add a can of drained green beans.  Heat until beans are warm.  

This recipe I use in the fall when we are camping, I start it off in the morning and when we return it's piping hot and ready.

This is a great substitute for pork and it amazingly tastes the same.  Our friends cannot tell the difference.

Porcupine Balls

I don't have measurements, but its ground beef, rice, bread crumbs, egg, Italian seasoning. Make into balls, put in crock pot with sliced green peppers, and tomato sauce, I use two bigger cans.

I'm not even sure how long it takes to cook. As you can tell its a pretty easy thing to make. Tastes like stuffed peppers, but don't have to eat soggy peppers if you dont want to.

Spaghetti Sauce--I could eat it with a spoon!

4 28oz cans crushed tomatoes with Italian seasonings--go for the decent brand like DelMonte or Red Pack. When I made it with generic store brand, it was HORRID.

2 large or 3 small cans tomato paste (if it has italian herbs, all the better)

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1-2 Tbsp brown sugar

any vegetables you like, such as peppers, onions, carrots, mushrooms, etc. 

Additional herbs and garlic to taste (we like a lot of garlic, so I add a bunch)

Cook it several hours until it darkens and thickens to the consistency you like (I take the lid off for an hour or so at the end so it gets really thick). It makes a large batch, so I freeze the additional meals and small containers to use for pizza.

 Chili, pulled pork, cranberry chicken, ranch pork chops, red beans and rice

 Pulled pork BBQ and roast.  The pulled pork, I put it in the crock pot with BBQ sauce and let it cook for a long time

Roast -- cut up onions and pour some water and/or gravy on it. Nothing fancy, but good.


have a nice day
