Dun, if you eliminate soups, chili and chicken about 95% of your options are gone. I have put a roast and other beef in one with taters onions and seasoning, put it on low and came back in 8 or so hours and had a very tender, delicious meal. I love crock pots simply because I can dump some meat, veggies and seasoning in it and dinner is ready when my day is done. If fact it's basically winter here and time for some potatoe soup.

I'm not afraid of hard work, I can lay down next to it and fall asleep without a problem.

Take a pork shoulder roast and dump a bottle of ranch dressing on it. Let it cook down, throw in some taters and carrots for a couple more hours. Cheap, delicious meal.

Pork butt works really good. Season it with some seasoned salt and put it in the Crockpot with some apple juice and an onion quartered let it cook 8-10 hours. When its done take it out pull it apart and put it back in with a new liner then dump a bottle of your favorite bbq sauce in there mix it up and your good to go. The apple juice helps tenderize it and gives it a sweeter flavor.

Here is a recipe that I use for both chicken and beef
either one is delicious.....have not tried it with pork....

from the Sweet Baby Rays web site.


Ingredients

4 -6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts thawed ( i just substitute and equivalent sized beef roast)
1 18 oz. bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup of vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

Mix all ingredients (except the chicken).
Put chicken in the crock pot and pour sauce mixture over it (TIP: save some sauce to glaze the chicken before you serve it!).
Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.

Did corned beef and cabbage the other night, not bad but not great. Did ribs and they were really super.

I like a slow cooker cooked roast, but I don't like the thin gravy. How can I thicken the gravy? I want to try a tater soup in mine one day too.
