I adore using my crockpot!!

Would anyone like to share their favorite crockpot or slowcooker recipes?

Here's one of my favorites to share!! Its super easy, and I sometimes swap out some of the veggies for meat.

Crockpot Veggie Lasagne
12 lasagna noodles, uncooked
1 zuchhini sliced
4 carrots grated
2 cups baby spinach
1 onion sliced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 jar(28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup water
16 ounces cottage cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

Break noodles in half. Place half of the noodles in bottom of greased 4-quart slow cooker. Stir Italian seasoning into veggies and spread half over the noodles already in slow cooker. Then layer half of the sauce and water, half of the cottage cheese, and half of mozzarella cheese over beef. Repeat layers. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours. Do not cook more than 5 hours.Makes 6-8 servings.

Here's another one of my favorite super-easy ones!!

Crockpot Beef Stew
2 lbs. stew beef
pepper to taste
splash worcestershire sauce
3 potatoes, cut into chunks
4 celery stalks, cut into chunks
4 carrots, cut into chunks
salt to taste

Place meat into crockpot, mix together flour, salt, pepper and mix in with the meat. Stir to make sure meat is coated. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours. Stir and serve!

Sounds great! I got a crockpot for Christmas and am looking for some good ideas (haven't really ever used one). I'll be checking back for some recipes from the contributors!

I have a different variation on the Beef Stew that I like to make. If I recall correctly, I actually got it from the recipe ideas that came with my crock pot years ago.

2 lbs. stew beef
1 10 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
1 onion, chopped
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
2T worcestershire sauce
1 packet beef stew seasoning
salt, pepper, and minced garlic to your own tastes

Place all ingredients in crock pot and mix well to coat. Cook 5 hours on high or 10 hours on low.

Since this stew doesn't have potatoes in it, I like to serve it over baked potatoes with a dollop of sour cream.

Crockpot ...
As a college student, I LOVE my crockpot! Here is my favorite recipe...

Buffalo Chicken
Ingredients:

3 – 5 lbs frozen skinless, boneless chicken breasts
12oz bottle Franks Red Hot Wings buffalo sauce
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix

Directions:

1. Place frozen chicken breasts into crockpot, pour buffalo sauce over chicken. Sprinkle ranch mix over top. Cover with lid and cook on low for about 5 hours.
2. Remove chicken to a cutting board. Do not discard sauce! Shred the chicken with two forks. The chicken should just fall apart. Place shredded chicken back into sauce still in crockpot. Stir to coat chicken.
3. Continue cooking shredded buffalo chicken in crockpot on low for about another hour or until chicken absorbs most of the sauce. Enjoy!

I usually use it to make sandwiches or burritos.

I do something similar with just chicken and a jar of salsa!

I use it for burritos, or quesadillas or anything Southwest!!

Sounds yummy!! Will have to try it this way!

haha I never would have thought of that, but just chicken and salsa sounds a lot simpler (and cheaper). Do you use a chunky salsa?

That sounds really good! I wonder how it would work with a bottle of bbq sauce if you don't want it that spicy... Ever tried it?

I think I've used every salsa under the sun. My favorites are always the ones with corn in them for some reason.

hmmm, I can't choose a favorite recipe but I love to slow cook meatballs, either in BBQ sauce or marinara, to make some killer homemade meatball subs.

I do the same thing. It tastes so good in the crock pot. I also like to do my hams in them as well.

If you've never done it, you need to try cooking your meatballs with equal parts Heinz chili sauce and grape jelly. I know it sounds weird if you haven't heard of it before, but trust me on this one!

Wrap that and make it into a burrito and it sounds Delicious! Even just shredding the chicken and putting it on a salad sounds good. I will definitely have to try that soon.

I haven't, but you can't go wrong with ranch and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ. If you try it and like it you should let me know...

Major crockpot fail this morning.

Put an awesome gravy and pork chops in the crockpot, set it on low, left the house. Got home and checked it. I never plugged it in. DOH!!

1 pk. onion soup mix
1 pk. pork gravy mix
1 can cream of (whatever) soup
1 can chicken broth
1 small can sliced drained mushrooms

Low, 6-8 hours.

Looks like we'll be doing mac & cheese and hot dogs instead. smdh...

Oh no! At least you had a back up plan.

That gravy sounds awesome, though.

I used 3, just cause we aren't big eaters around here, but it makes a ton of gravy and you could probably do up to like 5.
