Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

Slow cooker white bread!

so easy to do and doubles up nicely for those of you with larger crockpots! (triples too) you can reduce the sugar and salt, and it still works out fine.

Sugar 2 tsp
warm water 1 1/4 cups
envelope active dry yeast 1 envelope (8 g)

stir water and sugar together in a bowl. sprinkle yeast on top. let sit for 10 minutes. stir to dissolve yeast.

all purpose flour 2 cups
sugar 2 TBsp
Cooking oil 2 TBsp
salt 1 tsp

add flour, sugar, cooing oil and salt. mix together till dough is slicky sticky with no lumps.

all purpose flour 1 cup

knead in flour little at at a time, till dough is stiff. may not use all of flour, and may need more flour depending on the dough.

grease bottom of slow cooker, turn dough into slow cooker. lay about 5 paper towels on top, put a wooden match or skewers between top of slow cooker and paper towel to let steam escape. put lid on top of paper towels. cook on high for 2 hrs. do not lift lid for first 1 1/2 hours. loosen sides with a knife and turn out of slow cooker when done.

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I make this all the time! I love it and its great for my milk supply! I have also discovered that if I forget to start it the night before, you can cook this in your rice cooker pretty quickly! Thanks for the great recipe!

5 cups water
2 cups any WHOLE grain - you can mix any to make up 2 cups: For example -
brown rice,
steel cut oats (not rolled oats or quick oats!!!!),
whole buckwheat (kasha), etc.
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Place all items in a crockpot and stir. Cook on low overnight (8-10 hrs.)

This makes a lot and is fast to make up! Probably 8 servings? Leftovers can go in the fridge and it microwaves well later.

Good served with a little milk/soymilk and sweetened with honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup.

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I love to "play" with my crock pot. here is what I did last night

1 box tastefully simple potato/cheddar soup mix
6 c water

cook for about an hour

add diced potatoes (there is never enough in the mix)
add sliced ham
add peas to taste

20 min before ready to serve cook up some pasta noodles drain and pitch them in.

It was so good my boys loved it, it was like a goulash casserole.

My favorite crock pot recipe is brown sugar ham.

You put two cups of brown sugar at the bottom and put your ham ontop and let it cook on low all day. No need to add water or anything. It is sooo yummy

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

My m-i-l gave me this one, and I can't believe its so easy.

1 whole chicken, thawed
1 onion, halved or quartered
I can't Believe Its Not Butter spray
salt, pepper

Put the whole chicken in the crockpot, breast side up. Stuff the halved/quartered onion in the cavity. If there's some onion left, spread it around the bird. Spray the breast with the butter spray, season with salt and pepper. Turn the crock pot on high for about 4 hours. You know its done when the meat falls off the bone. You don't need to add any liquid, as it will make its own. I usually serve this with potatoes (mashed or cubed and boiled) and a salad.

I would also recommend one of my favorite cookbooks: Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann. It has recipes for crock pot meat loaf, enchiladas, corned beef and cabbage, pasta dishes, desserts, soups, chili, and a gazillion other recipes. I highly recommend the following recipes: Orange Hoisin Chicken, Old Fashioned Meat Loaf, Fresh Chile and Corn Chip Meat Loaf, Easy Cheesy Ravioli Casserole, Macaroni and Cheese, and Corned Beef and Cabbage.

Salsa Pork

1 Pork Tenderloin (about 1.5 pounds)
1 jar of salsa (I like pineapple salsa, but hubby likes black bean and corn)

Pour the salsa over the pork in the pot, and cook for 6 hours on low. Delicious with some rice

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I have no clue if this has been posted but it is DELICIOUS! It is my favorite dish EVER not just crock-pot.

Put into Crockpot
1lb. of stew meat
1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 can Campbell's French Onion Soup
1 can Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup
1 can water

Set on low for 6-7 hours. Take out meat and shred and put back in, add some sour cream and/or cream cheese to taste. Serve over egg noodles. DROOL! Never makes it to leftovers at our house.

Cranberry Pork (sweet, savory and EASY!)

Pork loin roast (or another rast cut if you prefer)
1 can cranberry jelly
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

Place roast in crock pot, sprinkle with soup mix and spoon cranberry in. Cook on low 6-8 hours until the roast falls apart. That's it, don't add any water, the pork releases a ton of juices and as the cranberry melts you're left with a ton of thin, delicious sauce.
