  • Crock Pot Recipes



    The woman I work for just hooked me out with an old-fashioned crock pot. What do you guys like to throw in? I've never used one!

      Pulled pork. Cheap pork roast, 12 or so hours at maybe 250 degrees if yours is adjustable. Otherwise, low. Put a bit of water in to start it off.


      The big problem arises after you cook it. Traditionally, a BBQ sauce of your choice, but most of them have lots of sugar or HFCS. I've been making my own from things like diluted A1 sauce and gum.

        OTB maybe you can use the following:


        SoG Zesty Barbecue Zauce


        Ingredients:

        - 1 6oz can tomato paste (preferable organic)

        - 1 to 1.5 cups of beef stock (I made my own but if you buy, you want it without salt)

        - 3 Cloves Garlic

        - .5 of an onion

        - 2 tablespoons dijon mustard

        - 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

        - 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

        - 1 teaspoon sea salt

        - 2 tablespoons chili powder


        Directions:

        1. Dice your onions and garlic as fine as possible. You want your BBQ sauce a little chunky but the more fine you dice these, the better the flavor will spread through the entire sauce.

        2. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Whether you use 1 cup or 1.5 cups of beef stock will depend on how thick you want your sauce.

        3. Bring sauce to heat on stove with a low setting.

        4. Cover and simmer. Stir frequently and taste regularly. The longer you simmer, the more consistent your flavor will be. I simmered for 20-30 minutes.

        5. Enjoy!


        Extra can be stored in refrigerator.


        I love love love pulled pork and beef too xoxo Darlene

          PG, how long do you keep your chicken in there for? On low or high setting?

              I just throw stuff in there and cook it. No measurements, no recipes. That's what I love best about crockpots.

                  I'm with Vick - a nice beef roast (arm roast is great), some onion, and (if I'm feeling extravagant) some chopped carrots. Let it ride low and slow all day and feast when you come home for dinner.


                  Another good option are ox tails. Same basic idea and incredibly good. Beef short ribs work well too.

                    if you use any sort of ground meat it is best to brown that in a skillet before you put it in crockpot...I will try and find some recipes to post here later xoxo Darlene

                      I throw a roast in whole. Add onions, garlic, salt, pepper and a big can of diced or crushed tomatoes (paste if you like a thick stock). Cook till roast is tender and falling apart. Pull roast from crockpot and add in any cooked vegetables you like. (This is clean out the refrigerator time at my house) Let everything get hot, cut up the roast and throw it back in. Taste for flavor corrections, put the crockpot on warm and eat when you're ready.

                      I also make chili and soup at Christmas on the stove, then put them each in a crockpot (I have three) to stay warm till everyone is ready to eat.

                        Thanks! I just bought a chicken from Walmart (evidently they are farm-raised...) and threw it in there with some turnips and carrots in a chicken broth. I covered the thing with butter, which I haven't used for YEARS...Butter REALLY isn't bad for you?!? (I can't believe I'm still even questioning this!..)

                          1) cheap cut of meat

                          2) fry/ brown the meat

                          3) chuck in onions, veggies, whatever*

                          4) add stock (/cider....) to just cover meat

                          5) low heat all day while you head off to work/play


                          When you get back, the house smells amazing and the meat just falls off the bone.


                          *root veggies will take longer to cook than the meat, just a little quirk to remember. Also where cooking in a pan the sauce will lose water and thicken up - this won't, so add flavour.


                          Example - this morning I chucked in a pork hock (browned), fried onions (for sweetness), chopped wild apples (sourness), crispy fried bacon (saltiness), and chestnuts. Cooked in chicken stock, threw in some sage.

                          Goooooorgeous!

                            In Fall/Winter, our family lives out of the crock pot.


                            >Pork shoulder, organic salsa, 20-24 hours on low.

                            >Beef roast, can of organic tom sauce, chopped onion & jalepenos, 8-10 hours on low.


                            Here's a decent blog on the subject. You can take the ingredients and modify them for PB foods of course.

                              Nice! Thanks for the link, cc40, I'll be sure to use some of those recipes next week...Right now I strictly eat chicken though (I can afford to get them farm-raised, but grass-fed beef is EXPENSIVE!) You guys think it's really that detrimental to my health if I eat some lean pork from the grocery store every now and then? I saw some for only 3 bucks a pound, but couldn't really look at it without thinking CAFOs...
