Crock Pot

I have never used my pot for anything but keeping food warm on a buffet, but am trying to reduce my carbon foot print. I have an over-sized oven and would like to use it less. Anybody got some good recipes? Espcially full meals in the crock pot.

Check out this blogsite; Stephanie O'Dea posted a new recipe every day for a year during 2008, and still posts occasionally. There are some really really good recipes (Garlic Chicken is one of my favorites) AND every recipe is gluten free, because her daughter has problems with gluten:

This is one of my fav's:

throw in 1 big pork roast and a bottle of gluten-free root beer

cook for 4-5 hrs on high

Drain the root beer

shred pork with 2 forks

return back to crockpot

dump in bottle of Baby Rays BBQ sauce

Cook 1 more hour

Serve over rice or gluten-free buns/toast

I put this in the crockpot today. I regularly half the recipe.

Pot Roast

3-4 lb. beef pot roast, cut into 2 parts, if necessary, to fit into the pot.

salt and pepper

Brown the meat in a skillet.

Put 1 small onion, chopped in the bottom of the crockpot.

Add the browned meat.

Mix together and por over meat:

3/4 oz. brown gravy mix(I use Orgran, the package says so much equals an oz. so I calculate from there)

1 c. water(First I put it in the skillet that the meat was browned in to deglaze the pan and add flavor.)

1/4 catsup

1/4 c. red wine

2 tsp. dijon mustard

1 tsp. worcestershire sauce

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Cook on low for 8-10 hrs.

I have started using my Crock Pot again and love it. This is one I did recently that seemed to work - Fruit Cobbler.

I used a bunch of rhubarb and a few apples chopped. Or you could use apples only or peaches.

Add 1 cup sugar and water. Cook for a couple of hours on High . Then mix 1 cup gluten-free SR flour, 1/2 teaspoon xanthum gum, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk or rice milk ... in a kitchen wizz and cover hot fruit immediately. Bake until brown about another hour or two.

Texture on the sponge is a bit heavier than it used to be but still tastes yummy :)

A good site is A Year of Slowcooking the site address is crockpot365.blogspot.com i used to throw stuff together in the morning ( or prep night before ) and it's great to come home and have dinner ready!

I have made stews, soups, casseroles, - i think this site will give you some good ideas.

I made several recipes from that 365 blog site. I liked all of them, but didn't try one. Can't remember what it was but it had sweet potatoes and I don't like those. For some reason, my husband and daughter hated every recipe I tried from there. I don't know why. I REALLY liked the one with chicken, wild rice and faux cream of mushroom soup.

Mostly I find that by just throwing things in there, I come up with something we'll all eat. I like to do chicken stew with some chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces, potatoes cut in chunks, slices of carrots and celery, chopped onion and maybe some other veggies if I have them. Peas are good in this but daughter's allergic now. I might put in green beans or corn if I have it. Also plenty of potatoes cut in chunks. Salt, pepper, parsley and 8 oz. or more of chicken broth. More broth if you like it soupy, less if you like it thicker.

I also make hamburger stew substituting browned ground beef, beef broth, tomato juice or V8 or maybe some canned tomatoes or even tomato sauce. Whatever I have around. I will add some Italian seasoning to this and sometimes even a can of kidney beans.

Sometimes I just do plain meat and potatoes. Like a pot roast with onions in one pot and another pot of mixed baby carrots, onions and chunks of potatoes. Why two crockpots? When my husband is home, I need that much. He's a big eater!

Sometimes I do plain potatoes in one. Prick with a fork, wrap in foil and you get baked potatoes! Or I will cut them in chunks, sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Very tasty!

This morning I was in a rush and forgot I would be getting home late. I knew I would not feel like cooking once I got home so I decided to experiment in the crock pot. I put in about a pound and half of lean ground beef, a finely chopped onion, mushrooms, and a jar of Bertoli Alfredo Sauce. I served it over rice and it was really yummy!!!

My favorite crockpot recipe is potato leek soup:

4 cups sliced potatoes

3 cups sliced leeks

1 bunch green onions

2 cups chicken broth (I use veggie broth)

6 slices bacon

1 1/2 cup milk

1 cup shredded cheese

All the ingredients except the last two go in, cook on low for about 8 hours. In the last 1/2 hour of cooking add the milk and cheese. Then mash or use a stick blender to make smooth.

Funny crock-pot story. I once wrote a crock-pot recipe out for a friend. I had forgotten to put the "r' in crock. She asked me if I was mad at my husband that day.
