No   Well, cut flank in half.  In crock add 1c beef broth, .5c soy sauce, .5c brown sugar, 1 tbsp. sesame oil, 1 tbsp. garlic, 1 tbsp. rice vinegar.  dash of ginger, onion powder, sriracha o

Did this today.  I had a 7 lb. shoulder so tripled the ingredients.  It was awesome, but maybe too much rosemary.  I don't really measure ingredients so maybe I used too much.  Also added hot peppers.

Did the mild version this weekend and served over mashed potatoes. My son did an actual happy dance when he tried it and proclaimed it his new favorite thing I have cooked.

Lazy Man’s Pulled Pork

I've done lamb shanks braised in red wine in there and they've come out really well. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper before you brown the shanks in some olive oil in a skillet and place them in the pot over some sliced onions (use leeks in there if you want something different). Deglaze the skillet with a little bit of red wine to scrape up any browned bits and dump the contents into the pot over the shanks (3-4 will fit in a decent sized crock pot). Fill about a third to half way up the shanks with red wine (only use a wine you'd actually enjoy drinking and typically use a heartier red like a cabernet, zinfandel, syrah, merlot, etc.). Throw in a few smashed garlic cloves, some rosemary sprigs, and maybe a tablespoon or so of whole peppercorns and cook on low until the meat starts to pull away from the bone. Serve over rice or, even easier, over some couscous with some finely chopped fresh mint in it. Meat will just melt in your mouth.

Another classic thing to serve with lamb shanks is white beans or a white bean puree (take a couple of cans of white beans and put them in the food processor and process until smooth, adding chicken broth slowly until you get a texture similar to mashed potatoes. Put into a microwave safe dish and season to taste with salt and pepper and a tablespoon or two of butter and put in the microwave for a minute or so until the butter is melted and the beans are warmed all the way through). This is also an excellent replacement for mashed potatoes that will be higher in fiber and add some protein to a meal as well.

Love these!!!!

Chuck or shoulder roast. Put crock pot on low heat. Add one package of Lipton Onion soup mix. No water.Just let it sit all day.Awesome!

That is how I started. Now I melt a Beef bullion cube in an IPA and throw it in with onions, spices, and potatoes.

Nice. This will be one of my projects for next week. :rant:
I do this all the time. What I've found is that covering the pork completely with the soda (I like to use Diet Dr. Pepper for a slightly sweeter flavor) tends to make it a bit more tender than just using one can.

Cuban Chicken

7 skinless chicken breasts

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

2 bay leaves

2 cans tomato sauce (or one big can)

1/2 tsp cumin

3/4 C raisins

1/2 C pimento olives, sliced

1 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp vinegar

I feel the olives add enough salt for the recipe, but add a pinch more if you feel it is needed. Occasionally I will add red pepper flakes.

Just throw everything into the crock pot for about 3 hours.

Serve over rice.

I made (a version) of this today for the first time. Turned out really good. Thanks for the bump!

Question:

One of my staples is putting a chuck roast into the pot with baby carrots, potatoes and letting it simmer on low for 8 hours in the onion soup mix. It's an incredible meal, as the roast just falls apart. But I'm getting REALLY sick of the onion soup. Is there something else I can use for a tasty stock to shake things up a bit? Thanks.

Use 2 cans of any of the cream soups (mushroom, onion, celery) and do not add water. Roast will come out amazing and the gravy is even better. I like the one can cream of mushroom and one can cream of onion comb myself.

This was great, BTW. Thanks. The cream of mushroom soup made all the difference. :confused:

Just saw this thread listed in the recipe thread.

My go to with doing a roast in the crock pot is using Better than Buillon. Its usually by the rest of the buillon...its a paste you dissolve in boiling water.

I usually do 2 cups of water, 2 big spoonfuls of the BTB and about 1/2-3/4 of a cup of half and half...about 10 grinds of the pepper grinder...maybe some garlic powder too.

Dump that over the roast and potatoes and carrots and let it go all day on low.

I usually use top round roast.

About a half hour or so before eating...I pull the roast out and pull it into chunks...not bit sized...but decent sized chunks/shreds. THen put it back in the juice to let it soak up a little more.

You can also thicken this and use it as a good beef stew recipe.

I'm making a batch of the Lazy Man's Pulled Pork for my draft tomorrow. Every time I've made it I've used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce. What's the sauce of choice amongst you guys that make this pulled pork??

You will never use anything else, if you like spicey go with more cayenne and black pepperRoxy's Mustard Vinegar Sauce 1 cup apple cider vinegar 1/2 cup Yellow mustard 1/4 cup onion finely minced 2 cloves garlic pureed 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce Combine ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. For a smoother sauce, blend on high for a few minutes.

Many months ago I was googling for crockpot ideas and came upon this.

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

This woman vows to use her crockpot for 365 days straight. Apparently her quest caught on and people all over sent in ideas and recipes. Many of which she tried, all of which she critiqued, some of which she panned. She is very honest in her assessments.

I've tried a few and they were great. If you have some time to look it's worth it.

The Crockpot serves 2 main purposes for me:

1. Make it easier for me to make good tasting food. I can grill a steak. And that is pretty much the extent of my cooking skills. The slow cooker is dummy proof. You can make awesome tasting food.

2. Saves me alot of money on food expenses. Cheap cuts of beef are made very tender, and I cook in bulk and freeze leftovers. To that end, I laugh when I see slow cooker recipes with 4000 ingredients, including uncommon spices. For those of you like me, that are looking for recipes with minimum ingredients, I found a good site, with 6 items or less ingredients:

Chili receipt we use alot. Can be eaten straight out of the crock pot or mix it with white rice. From my lovely wife:2lbs ground beef (browned and drained)1 small onion (chopped) (or dried chopped onion)16 oz kidney beans (mostly drained)16 oz black beans (mostly drained)16 oz pinto beans (mostly drained)14.5 oz diced tomatoes, undrained (italian style works best since it has green peppers & spices already in it)6 oz tomato paste2 envelopes chili seasoning (your choice)1 cup of waterAdd all beans, diced tomatoes and tomato paste to the crock pot and mix well. Mix the chili seasoning packets with the 1 cup of water and add to the crock pot and mix everything well. Add the cooked and drained ground beef to the crock pot and mix well. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring occassionally if desired.(Cook on high for 1 1/2 - 2 hours if in a hurry.)

Just put the ingredients in the crock pot about an hour ago. Couldn't find the pinto beans, and I substituted ground turkey for ground beef. Looks really good.
For a recipe like this, do I put everything in the crockpot at one time? Even the meat after browning it?

How do you guys make sure that pot roasts don't get dry?

Put a little water or stock in the bottom. Once the roast starts cooking it will release juices to baste it with.
Yep. I put in two packets of Lipton onion soup mix with about four fingers of water. Turn the roast over halfway through.

I'm cooking this today in my Crock Pot:

Chicken Bog:

1 (3-pound) chicken, quartered (I use breasts only)

1 pound smoked link sausage

1 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

2 teaspoons Seasoned Salt (recommended: Lawry's)

2 teaspoons House Seasoning, recipe follows

1 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

3 bay leaves

8 cups water (I substitute 1 14 oz. can chicken broth for 14 of the ounces)

3 cups raw white rice

Directions

Slice the sausage into 1/2-inch pieces. In Crock pot, combine the chicken, sausage, onion, butter, seasonings and bay leaves. Set slow cooker to desired cook time (I ususally choose 8 hours). About an hour before the cook time is up, remove the chicken from the pot and let cool slightly. Pick the meat from the bones, discarding the bones and skin. Add the rice to the pot and finish cooking (it's finished when the rice is cooked). Remove the bay leaves, and return the chicken to the pot.

House Seasoning:

1 cup salt

1/4 cup black pepper

1/4 cup garlic powder

Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Doesn't taking the cover off the crock pot "waste" a lot of the benefits to cooking in the crock pot? (I'm asking, not critisizing.)

The crock pot.

A dear friend for over twenty years of cooking for myself and others,

but i've never tried pork. What a great idea and I can't wait to try it.

Thank you Raider Nation for starting this thing up!

Ham hocks and black eyed peas are one of my favs, but any bean works

with a good smoked hock.

Soak dry beans overnight. Rinse them off and add them to hocks in cooker.

Add fresh water to the top and cook for at least 12 hrs.

I like to add one onion and a clove of garlic.

I've found that it's best to salt and season later as some smoked meat is saltier than others.

There is no better compliment to these beans than cornbread. It really makes the meal.

Thanks again everyone and keep em coming.
