Postby dun » Thu Oct 20, 2016 1:38 am

Any one have decent recipes for cooking stuff other than soups and chicken in a crockpot?

Thanks

Corned beef is excellent in the crock pot, as long as it's not cooked too long.

Dun, get a whole chicken and put your favorite rub on it , make 4 balls out of alum foil about 1.5" in diameter put in the bottom of the crock pot lay your chicken on top of them put lid on it set it for 6hrs to 8 hrs on low cook times vary on crockpots put most will be done in 6hrs . DO NOT ADD ANY LIQUIDS

Beef roast with quartered potatoes baby carrots some cabbage and cup of water on low for 6-8 hours.

Pork roast, can of coke, bottle of bbq sauce

I don't get very creative in my slow cooker.

Also have done spaghetti sauce all day on it and tastes great.

A few pork chops, cream of mushroom soup. Cook it all day, then either make egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or soft boiled potatoes to pour it over. Good stuff with some Tony's sprinkled over it and garlic bread.

When cooking something like beef ribs or colid muscle cuts does the meat have to be submerged? How much liquid is needed if not submerged?

Depends on the cut. Fatty meat needs very little. I put about 1/4" in with a corned brisket. With a whole chicken we add no more than a cup. More often than not, it'll need less water than you put in.

Do most my cooks on ceramic cooker (Big Green Egg). Dislike needing to sear red meats before going in
crock pot. I know lots people do these meats in slow cooker, just not appeal to me. Really like the post
another subject on this forum that use cast iron to sear then just added veggies and stuck in oven. That
more nearly approximated what I grew up with. My daughter does slow cooker routinely, just dumps in
before going to work on low, dinner ready when family get home. Seems a lot the recipes out there for
slow cookers, negate the ease and convenience of the unit.

Trying ham and cheesy potato casserole today in slow cooker. 6 to 8 potatoes peeled and sliced, 1 medium onion chopped, cup shredded cheddar, pound and quarter to pound and half of ham cubed (I like a lot of meat in my casserole), mix together in slow cooker then pour over top to cover mixture can of cream of chicken soup mixed with a half can of milk, cook on high 4 to 6 hours, low 8 to 10. Should be good eating!

Put 1# of HB meat in slow cooker till done(no pink)
Add in pkg of taco season and stir well
Add can black beans( or your choice of bean)
Add can of Mexican corn
Add your choice of rotel or salsa ( I didn't I just topped it with salsa after it was on my plate )
Let it cook it well heated and flavors blended ( about an hour on high)

Plate of tortilla chips topped with a above mixture and topped with cheese, lettuce and tomato, salsa
Recipe calls for the mixture to be put in a caserole dish with Tortilla chips and topped with cheese and heated till cheese melts
But it turns the chips to mush so I do similar to nachos but with more meat than chips

Chili is always good
HB meat and chili seasoning with canned diced tomatos is easy
