OK, so it's cold and breezy out... I guess it's officially winter here in Southeastern NC.  It's not quite time for lunch, and I just got finished reading the thread on soups.  Basically, I'm hungry.  I got a crock pot for Christmas and am wanting some good recipes to cook in it.  Split-pea soup sounds good but so does chili.  Maybe we should cook a roast with vegetables or perhaps a vegetable beef soup.  What are some favorite winter-time crock pot recipes that you guys and gals like to cook?

I love something like a good short ribs recipe.  This one is not specifically for crock pot but I'm sure you can find one.  I use a cast iron pot in the oven, but it's more or less the same.

Short ribs are so much more succulent than a regular beef roast.

Oh, that sounds delicious, Philly. I'm gonna have to cook this up!
Darn. Now I'm hungry too. :P
David, there are zillions of crockpot recipes and several dozen cookbooks. From what I have read some of them are just plain weird concoctions I wouldn't serve to my dogs. However, one lady at church brought in a chocolate cake made in a crockpot which was moist and delicious. I can think of none to recommend at this point as I'm a stove top cook. I use my crockpot mostly to cook turkey breast w/quarter cup of chicken broth. cajun seasoning. Slow cook overnight. Result: moist turkey meat.

Philly, that does sound good.  Mike, I've found lots of recipes, but I like to have some that are 'tested' by others.  I can believe the crock pot cake; people make 'em in electric skillets, too!

That recipe I posted is really just like the short ribs dish I've made before.  I was just too lazy to go located it and write it out from the cookbook so I just googled for a similar one.  Trust me -- you'll definitely like it.  It's just a perfect height-of-winter dish.  And if you like mashed potatoes it's a winning combo for sure.

ps:  I swear that the key to proper mashed potatoes is using a potato ricer, NOT a hand mixer!

David, you stole my thread! ;) In the crockpot at this very moment, i'm cooking a family recipe called Porcupine meatballs.  Please remember that I cook for a small army.  I'll try and cut the recipe for you here. If you need or want the "big" recipe that I use, I can give you that, too.  This should feed 3 - 4 people or 2 with left overs.

Porcupine Meatballs

1lb of ground beef (or 1/2 lb of ground beef and 1/2 lb of either ground sausage or ground turkey)
1 cup of Uncle Ben's rice (or any instant rice - DON'T use boil in a bag rice)
Garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper to taste.

4 - 5 small potatoes left whole or larger potatoes in half

1 can tomato soup
2 cans tomato sauce
water

After peeling the potatoes and rinsing, put them in teh bottom of the crock pot.  Mix the first 2 ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Add seasonings to taste.  Using your hands, mix thouroughly.  Divide and roll into balls about the size of golf balls.  Place on top of the potatoes in the crock pot.  It's ok to stack everything up.  Mix the soup, sauce and 1 1/2 cans of water together.  Pour over the potatoes and meatballs.  Cover.  Set crockpot on high for 3 - 4 hours or on medium for 4 - 5 hours.  Times and temperatures may need to be adjusted.  Done when potatoes are tender.

Here's a Southern favorite.

Red Beans and Sausage.

1lb bag of raw kideny beans
1 small onion chopped (or use onion powder)
4 cloves of garlic minced (or use garlic powder)
salt and pepper to taste
1lb of link sausage sliced

Put everything in the crockpot.  Add enough water to cover everything plus that amount again.  Cover.  Put crock pot on high for 3 - 4 hours or on medium for 5 -6 hours.  If you are going to be gone longer, like to work or out for the day, just add more water before leaving.  It's done when the beans are tender. 

This recipe can also be made with Great Northern Beans (white beans).  Ham can also be substituted for the sausage or meat can be left out all together.  Serve over rice or with cornbread.

Roast Chicken

1 small fryer chicken (with all the ucky stuff taken out of the cavity)
water
2TBS cooking oil (any type)

Wash the chicken and put it in the crockpot.  Add the oil.  This keeps the water from boiling over and the brown "stuff" from occuring while the chicken is cooking.  Cover.  Turn it on high and let it cook all day.  The chicken will fall off the bone.  From here, we eat it as is.  The stock is awesome for making either homemade gravy (I can give you that recipe if you want it) or use it as a base for chicken soup, cream chicken, or chicken and dumplings.

I fired up the crockpot I got for Christmas this morning with a mac and cheese recipe I found on the internet. I've been surfing the past couple of days for crockpot recipes and I've come to the conclusion you can throw in just about anything long as you don't overdo liquids. They do recommend you sear your meat ;D before placing it in the crockpot. I'll fill you later how the mac and cheese turns out.

Hal, I think you're right about being able to 'throw in just about anything'.  I wouldn't have thought about mac and cheese, but why not?  So, how many of us got crock pots for Christmas?  I chose the one I got (actually returned one and got this one instead) because it has a meat probe ;) to eliminate some of the guesswork or possibility of undercooked meat.

Minismom, I don't cook for an army - there are just two of us - but I love leftovers for lunch at work.  I'd hate to go to the trouble of cooking a good meal and not have enough left over for another meal or two.  The red beans and sausage sounds good.  We knew that as 'red beans and rice' when I was growing up.  We lived in Louisiana for a couple of years back in the early '70's and enjoyed the good food ever since (my mom really is a great cook - 'most any style or ethnicity is no challenge to her).  I remember we had a beef tongue once.  She cooked it in the crock pot and made barbecue with it, but I was threatened about telling my younger sister that it was a cow tongue!

David, I grew up in South Louisiana and just loved the food!  I live by my crockpot.  We dont' have airconditioning and so in the summer we grill and crock pot a LOT so we don't heat the house.  We also have a roaster that we'll put outside during the summer to do our baking / roasting in so we don't have to use the oven.  The recipes I gave you are smaller than what I cook and should make plenty for you, hubby, and some leftovers for lunch or a lazy weekend.

Eat well!

I'm sorry but that is funny. I can just see it a pale yellow blob as the finished product.
I repeat, the people who put some of those recipes in crockpot cookbooks eat strangely concocted foodstuff.

Hal, that cheesy sponge image is funny!  It sounds really nasty, too.  I was kind of thinking that it might be a bit funky.  Minismom, I'd like that recipe for the gravy, too.  I'm going to the store tomorrow and get some stuff for the crock pot!

Sure thing, David, here it is:

Home made chicken gravy:

Chicken stock (broth) - I pour mine through a strainer to make sure all the fat and stray meat don't get into the gravy.
3 TBS margarine or butter
3 TBS flour
Milk

In a heavy sauce pan on medium heat, melt the margarine or butter.  When melted add the flour and mix well.  The mixture will be lumpy. Reduce heat to low. Slowly add milk, about 1/8 cup at a time and stir well.  Continue to add milk until the mixture is creamy.  Add 3 cups of the chicken stock to the mixture and stir constantly until it comes to a boil.  This may take awhile, but increasing the heat or not stirring will burn the gravy and make it turn very dark.  When it comes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer.  Keep a very close eye on the gravy and stir regularly.  As the gravy becomes thickened, taste to make sure it isn't too rich.  If it is, then add more milk a small amount at a time.  If the gravy isn't rich enough, add more chicken stock a little at a time.  If the gravy is too thick, add more milk or stock.  If it is too thick, then mix a small amount of flour and milk in a cup.  Stir until the flour is completely disolved (mixture will be thick).  Slowly pour mixture into the gravy, stirring constantly.  If you dont' stir, the addition will turn into "dumplings".  That's it.  Sounds complicated, but it really isn't.

Now, if you want the "taste" of homemade without all the fuss, here's a trick.  Buy a package (or 2) of gravy mix powder - the kind you add water to.  Instead of adding water, add half water and half of the chicken stock.  Follow the cooking directions on the package.  Same taste, less time ;D

Happy eating!

I put a 7-pound pot roast in the crock pot, set it on low, added a bit of beef broth in the bottom, seasoned the meat as usual (salt, pepper, garlic powder), and let it do its thing for nine hours.

Tender, oh my, was it tender. Juicy, flavorful. YUMMMMMMMMY!

After I took it out I saved the drippings for gravy, which I make with arrowroot or corn starch cause I can't have gluten.

I served it all with steamed rice, blackeyed peas and collard greens seasoned with a bit of seasoned rice vinegar.

OK, now I'm hungry again.

MMMMMM Fooood.......

Ok, I don't have exact measurements for my recipe and it turns out a bit different every time but it is good! I make it for my boyfriend and I and we have enough leftovers for another meal or two.

Get 3 halved chicken breasts (bone-in and with the skin intact) and sear them
1 large yellow or white onion sauteed in butter
2 cans whole or sliced green chiles (with juice)
3 limes
At least 1 carton chicken broth
A few dashes of cumin
Cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste

Add seared chicken, onion, green chiles (and juice), juice from 2 limes, broth, cumin and salt and pepper to crockpot.
You want to make sure the broth covers the chicken. I like to put it on low for about 8 hours but you can put it on high for about 4 to 5 hours. Pick out the bones and your ready to serve. Serve on hot FLOUR tortilla's, sour cream, cilantro and a splash of lime juice.

Have another one for ya. This was my grandmother's recipe. It's simple and tasty.

1 bag each of pinto, red, and pink beans. Mix together. You can store the extra for later use.

2 cups mixed beans soaked overnight
1 smoked hammock (for the better ones, ask your butcher)
salt and pepper

Rinse the soaked beans and add to crockpot. Fill with cold water to cover. Add hammock and seasoning and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on low 4-6 hours. Remember to keep the water level above the beans. Serve hot with cornbread. MMMMMMMM

Well that was a disaster. I followed the recipe and what I got was a mildly cheesey flavored sponge. How do you screw up mac and cheese?

LMAO
Maybe you better let Sam do the cooking! ;D

I looked up some receipes: http://www.a-crock-cook.com/
This sounded good.
Ingredients: Chili
2, 1-lb. packages breakfast sausage, (try one "hot" and one regular)
1 pound lean ground beef
2 1/2 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
4 cloves garlic
2 medium onions
1 tbsp chopped jalapenos
3, 14-oz cans Italian-style stewed tomatoes
2, 15 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
Method
Chop onions, garlic and jalapenos in food processor. In large skillet saute sausage and beef with spices, onions, garlic and jalapenos until meat is browned. In meantime, puree lightly the tomatoes and set aside. When meat is browned through, drain and put in crock pot. Add tomatoes. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Turn heat to low and simmer about 2 hours more or until onions are tender. Adjust seasoning, if necessary. Add the beans and heat through. Serve with sour cream and grated cheese (optional). Serves 10 to 12.

Coke Roast
The night before needed, heavily salt and pepper an English roast and place in a large bowl.
Cover with a 2-liter of Coca-Cola and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, place in a crock pot and cover with beef broth. Cook on high for 3 hours, then turn down to low for minimum of 3 hours or as much as 6 hours. Voila, tender moist roast ever!

Well, they have crock pots on sale at Kohl's here this weekend and I just might have to go get one after reading all these wonderful recipes.  The problem with them is, it's only me here.  I guess it would all make for a lot of leftovers to freeze that I could just reheat later.

Hey Betty,

You can find crock pots of all sizes. From pretty small (good for one person or to make dip) to the so enourmous you can cook a whole cow in (ok, maybe not but you get my point).

Also, a good place for recipes is www.allrecipes.com Just look for the crock section.

You can make gumbo in the crock pot, but not the best way to do it.  You'd have to put everything together in a stock pot first and then transfer it to the crock pot.  A crock pot wouldn't get hot enough to make the roux or turn it the really pretty brown color it would have to be to set a proper gumbo.

I have happily stumbled upon a wonderful thread!  I have a crockpot and only use it once a year in the classroom. I have wanted to use it at home but I am not a cook (more of a baker). This year I have promised myself to work on that. I went to the recipe link and I think I can do this. :) My mother will be so proud...LOL!

Hi Mum,

I finally decided to cook something.  As we speak, there's a 3 lb pot roast (beef) with veggies just cooking away.  We braised the meat first (per my mom).  We'll know in a few hours how it is!  I think maybe we'll try those meatballs next week.  When it gets cold again (like this past week) I'll do some chili, beans, or soup.  Thanks for all the ideas / recipes; we're saving them to try.  Stay tuned for the results of our pot roast.

To make sure it's done, stick a fork in the thickest part and twist.  If the meat falls apart, it's done.  Can't wait to hear how it all turns out.

Here you go, Queen:

Potatoes: washed, peeled and cut into 1/8th
2TBS butter or margarine
2TBS flour (any kind, although whole wheat will give a reddish tint)
Milk
Cheese wiz (I use the kind in the jar)


Put the potato chunks in a pan cover with water.  Add about 1/8 cup of cooking oil to prevent the water from boiling over.  Boil until just tender.  Pour into a strainer.  In the same pan, heat butter or margarine until melted.  Add flour and stir until clumpy.  Add milk and continue stirring until smooth and starting to thicken.  Add 1/2 jar of cheese wiz (more or less to taste).  Stir until melted.  If mixture is too thick, slowly add more milk.  If too thin, add more cheese wiz.  When mixture is correct consistency, remove from the heat and add potatoes.  Stir gently until well mixed, making sure not to "mash" the potatoes.  If you want, cube up ham and add to the mixture with the potatoes.

This cheese sauce is also good for pouring over vegitables or mixing with California mixed vegitables (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots).  It can also be used with cooked elbow macaroni for macaroni and cheese.

Here's a neat way to cook vegitables.  Not a crock pot recipe, but one that I discovered and liked a lot.  Even my picky eater kids will eat their veggies this way.

Bag of mixed vegitables (I use California Blend with broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)
Or, buy fresh vegitables of your choosing
Potatoes; cleaned and cut into 1/8ths (leave the peeling on)
1/3 cup of olive oil; or 1/4 cup of olive oil if not using entire bag of vegitables or not using that many fresh vegitables
4TBS Mrs. Dash original blend


If using mixed frozen vegitables, let them thaw, but do not cook.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with foil and then spray with non-stick spray.  Place vegitables in either a large bowl with a lid or a large bowl that can be tightly covered with foil.  Add oil and Mrs. Dash.  Cover and shake well to coat all veggies.  Pour out onto the cookie sheet.  Place in oven for 1hr or until potatoes are soft.  Serve.

These reheat well, too.

Happy Cooking!
Mum

Lucas loves a crockpot, half hour prep time, stir every now and again.
Then i can go tell the ungrateful son of a bitches that i cook my ass off all day long and this is the thanx i get. lmao
pretty hard to screw up a dinner in them ( sorry Hal ).
I think it is the best way to cook a roast beef with carrots and taters, pull the solids out  put it on high a little flour and water salt and pepper and instant gravy for the meat and taters.

                                                            ( have to find a roast on sale i think)

The pot roast is awesome!  We put the roast, a can of diced tomatoes, a bunch of quartered red-skin potatoes, carrots, onion, a bell pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in the pot (along with a bit of water).  We cooked it on high for 2 hours then switched it to low for about 6-7 hours.  After that, it automatically switches to warm.  All in all, it was in the crock pot about 12 hours.  The meat is very tasty and tender, the carrots, potatoes, and peppers are cooked but firm.  Now that we've taken all the food out, I'm letting the broth cool so I can get some of the fat off it.  I'm going use that to make some vegetable beef soup with pasta in it next... just like my grandmother used to make.  She'd be proud of her gay grandson!   :D

As much as I despise Sandra Lee's grating voice, I did get a kick out of making the crockpot cake recipe she did.
1 can of apple pie filling, two cans of sliced pears, juice and all......toss in a quick yellow cake mix(I use Jiffy yellow)...let it rip for four or so hours on high, and voila'.
Whoops...you gotta put a towel on top of the pot, but under the lid, so the condensation doesn't mush up your creation.

Need a dinner suggestion MOM?
hamburger....cook it with a chopped up onion and seasonings of your choice..uh salt and pepper works as a start
One package Egg Noodles...cook them according to directions
Campbells Golden Mushroom soup ( not "cream" of..has to be golden...but hey, whatever you got) and add 1 can hot water and wisk together
then
mix together all cooked ingredients
and voila!
you have just made:  beef stroganoff
its even better when you bake it for an hour @ 350 in a casserole dish after mixing all ingredients but if they are a hungry bunch they wont notice
(adjust amounts of ingredients according to family size: its about 1 lb hamburger, 1 package noodles, and 1 can soup)
this is really the "original" hamburget helper and its way less expensive

Thanks Lisa and Bear.  Bear, that sounds really good.  Gonna mix it up, add some breadcrumbs to the top and pop it in the oven.  My idea for a thread was to get different ideas for meals, or "twists" people have to perk up the staples.  I honestly logged on with that purpose in mind,and found that David beat me to it! I cook 3 meals a day nearly every day of the week.  My arsenol of meals is only so big (tonight it's pancakes and bacon for supper - but I cooked chicken and potatoes after church for lunch so they're not gonna starve) and I could really use some new ideas.

Lisa, we make a dump cake almost the same way, but in the oven.  You dump a can of pie filling in a 8x8 pan or 2 cans of pie filling in a 9x13 pan.  Mix a box of yellow or chocolate cake mix with 1 stick of melted margarine.  Crumble it over the top of the pie filling.  Bake 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.  It's just as good with sugar-free pie filling and the new splenda cake mix.
Good combos are: cherry filling w/ chocolate cake, apple with yellow cake, and pumpkin with yellow cake (I add some cinnamon and nutmeg to the pumpkin)

Wow, I think the 'Recipe Thread' is gonna be one I check regularly... as long as folks keep posting ideas in it.  Mum, have you ever used one of the oil-core electric skillets?  They're ridiculously expensive ($150+ for a cheap new one), but I got one on my other favorite website, eBay, for $15 a week or so ago (Google 'oil core electric skillet' if you aren't familiar with 'em).  I haven't used it much, but one can bake a cake in it, among other things.  It does great omelets, as there are no hot spots.  We're gonna try a deep-dish pizza in it at some point.  I think tonight I'll fix spaghetti in it instead of leftovers.  Let's keep the good recipes coming... along with some low fat ones!  I can tell I'm going to get as big as a house if I keep eating like this.

Wow! I just looked up the oil core skillet.  The one i saw was on sale for $209 - usually over $600 :o YIKES!  We used to have the old fashioned electric skillet - a square one that after regular use for a few years had a perminant mark on the bottom where the heating core is.  That one looks really cool.  I'd need a really really big one, though :P

I hope this thread keeps up, too.  I need some new ideas for meals.  I also need to know ones that bomb so I stay away from those.

I hope this thread keeps up also, for when I ever do break down and get the crock pot I want.  How big is yours, David? (crock pot you pervs)
