Crock Pot Or Time Bake Recipes?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have a busy schedule and need to get dinner made in the morning before work or ready the night before? I need some new recipes that are gluten-free, dairy free and soy free. Does anyone have anything they'd like to share?

Here's what I already do:

Time bake: Roast chicken and potatoes, chicken in curry sauce and rice, chicken with a sort of "teriyaki" sauce and rice, various kinds of meatballs in sauce

Crock pot: stew, chicken and vegetables, meat in barbecue sauce, porcupine meatballs

I also try to make some things ahead (like meatloaf, meatballs) and put them in the freezer raw so I just have to thaw and bake.

I hope some of you are more creative than I am. I know I used to make more, but I can't seem to find my old recipe file and I'm in a rut.

I "borrowed" this recipe from a friend, but I consider to be mine as well now, because I make it so much. It's the easiest recipe ever. Put boneless chicken breasts in a crock pot, pour in a jar of salsa (or two) and cook on low for 6 or so hours. When you're ready for dinner, shred the chicken and you have intstant filling for chicken tacos. My kids LOVE this. ( I used Green Mountain Gringo Salsa, the roasted garlic flavor - it has a great flavor and no large "chunks", which my kids object to.)

My friend also does a variation of this to make chicken chili. She adds a jar of salsa, a can of diced tomatoes with juice, black beans and corn. That's also *very* yummy!

I use my crock pot all the time and am looking for new recipes too! :)

A favorite here is Italian Potroast: Brown a chuck roast on both sides with a little garlic salt and worchestshire sauce. Put in the crockpot with either a large jar (I use Classico) of spaghetti sauce or stewed tomatos and your favorite italian herbs. Cook an low all day long. Serve on your favorite gluten-free pasta.

I discovered that if you take a london broil, put in one can of cream of anything (which you can sometimes find with only rice flour added, Health valley makes some good soups, or maybe you could add a few tablespoons of milk alternative) and then enough tomatoe soup to cover the meat, wow is it tender and not dry at all, the way pot roast can be. Just cook on low in the crock pot for 8-10 hours. Oh, and I add a bunch of seasoning, lemon pepper, oregano, salt, parsley and garlic. The sauce is really good for dipping the Whole Foods gluten free bakehouse cream biscuits!

JNbunnie, what kind of tomato soup do you use? Campbell's has gluten. :ph34r:

Either Health Valley in the can, I like the garden veggie one cuz it's tomato soup and has veggies which add a nice flavor (still check labels) or the boxed ones in the health food section at Stop & Shop, which is my New England grocery. Pacific and Imagine are the boxed brands. The straight tomato soup you use can't have rice flour though, so you might have to stick with the canned tomato, and then add the boxed tomato for the 'cream' soup. I've found that as long as it's got rice flour added it acts like the cream of anything soup you need for the recipe, but I don't have dairy issues so I just use cream soups. The original recipe called for cream of mushroom but I hate mushrooms, so celery or broccoli is what I usually do. But ALL the mainstream tomato soups have gluten, trust me, I've checked....... Only some of the 'health food' ones are safe.

I have a great crock pot cookbook. It is not specifically gluten-free, but many, many of the recipes have no gluten in them. For most recipes, there are no substitutions needed or I can simply substitute a gluten free soup or other ingredient without affecting the taste!

Crock pots are God's gift to the busy cook! :)

Pork - country spareribs or tenderloin or chops - just dump in crockpot with sauerkraut to cover, let cook on low all day. Serve with mashed potatoes. Might be an acquired taste if you weren't raised on Pennsylvania Dutch or German cooking.

Also works well: pork with barbecue sauce.

Hey, I'm hoping this may help you. I know that this is Gluten free, but I'm not certain about the Soy or the Dairy. I get the Banquet brand Crock Pot Classics (herb chicken and rice flavor) in the freezer section. They have all the ingredients in them. All you add is a little water and let them cook all day. Here is a list of the ingredients on the side of the bag...

Chicken thigh meat, carrots, cooked rice, onions, sauce pouch (water, herb seasoning, [autolyzed yeast extract, modified cornstarch, onion powder, garlic powder, natural flavor (contains yeast extract), dehydrated parsley, spices including turmeric, monosodium glutamate, dextrose and less than 2% polysorbate 80 as a processing aid], salt), green peppers.

Like I said, it's SUPER easy, SUPER cheap, and SUPER good! I hope you can use this...let me know!

We do this one quite a bit: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sarges-EZ-Pul...BBQ/Detail.aspx

We make sure to use gluten-free beef broth, we do add the liquid smoke (if you read the comments on the recipe you'll see that suggestion), and of course gluten-free BBQ sauce--Sweet Baby Rays is AWESOME.

Our family loves pulled pork SO much and it's not even bothersome to just eat it without a bun.

We also make the same cut of meat mexican style with some gluten-free taco seasonings (we like Ortega). You can toss it in a taco shell or corn tortilla when ready to serve.

We are a very busy family and especially in the fall and winter we use our crock pot at LEAST once a week.

Chili is another thing you could pull off gluten-free/CF/SF if you needed to. We do brisket in the crock pot a bit, too. Add potatoes, gluten-free beef broth (we used to use beer, might try some gluten-free beer instead of broth this winter), carrots, onions, celery, Heinz chili sauce, and lotsa lotsa garlic. It's SOOOO nice to come home to a nice already cooked hot meal on a cold day!

I'm going to check out those Banquet meals! Those would be awesome in a pinch and it is REAL FOOD!!!

I've been told that Heinz Tomato Soup is gluten-free, but haven't found any in our stores to check the ingredients. Progresso makes a gluten-free Cream of Mushroom, but you have to like mushrooms because there are a lot of them!

I make Carne Guisada in the crock pot and it's so easy. You can cut up the beef into small chunks or just throw it in whole and shred with a fork after it cooks.

Take a roast and throw it in the crock pot. I do use a boneless one. Cut up an onion and a bell pepper into small chunks and put on top of the meat. Mince up a clove of garlic and add that. Put a can of Rotel mexicali tomatoes (yes they are gluten free) in a bowl and add a crumbled up Knoor bullion cube (beef or chicken) (Yes they are gluten free) and a couple of tablespoons of what ever thickner you use. I used to use cornstarch until I developed a sensetivity to corn now I use tapioca. Mix this up and dump it on top of the veggies and cook on low for 8 hours. If you plan on being gone longer add 1/2 a cup of water. Stir to combine before serving. Serve with corn tortillias or eat it plain. I usually add some refried beans and guacamole to serve with this.

Enjoy,

Yellow Rose
