Slow Cooker/Crockpot Recipes

I got one for Christmas and haven't had a chance to use it yet. The only thing I've ever made in one is boiled peanuts, and while delicious, that isn't really a meal. I'm looking for recipes I can throw together in the morning and eat for dinner when I get back later in the afternoon.

My Ride: nothing
stew beef
1lb baby carrots
a bunch of potatoes, and sweet potatoes
random spices
12oz of beef broth.

Throw everything in over night and then add some corn starch to thicken.


You can literally throw any food in there and it cooks it well. Are there any specific dishes you want to try?


Pulled pork is also amazing.

My friend made some pulled pork for a tailgate last football season that was great, I'll have to get his recipe. Not looking for anything specific, just things you guys have tried so I know I'm not wasting my time.

Water, raw peanuts in the shell, lots and lots of salt. I think I used ~1/2 cup of salt last time, but you can adjust it later in the boil. If they're too salty, remove some of the brine and add fresh water. I usually add a lot of cayenne pepper too. They're done when they sink to the bottom, usually ~10-12 hours later.

anything from here has been pretty good for me... http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

Cream cheese chicken is REALLY good and easy. I will make it and them put it on a taco shell and make a quesadilla and it is as good as a mexican restaurant.

Like DylloS said you can basically throw anything in there and it'll come out good.

That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for. I just threw this in to cook for 8 hours, should be good. I'm loving the fact that I can use the shittiest beef the store has to offer.

That's the thing. The statement you can literally throw anything in there and it'll be good is sort of an overstatement. The crappier cuts tend to do better because they have lots of fat and connective tissues that takes well to being cooked longer at a lower heat.

I have a lot of friends that swear by their chicken cutlet recipes that they cook in the crock pot. There is a distinct difference between a chicken cutlet that has been over boiled and it's "juicy" since it's been sitting in liquid and a juicy chicken cutlet.

I'm not saying that the food won't be tasty, but there are far better preparations for certain meats that will take just as long to cook perfectly as they would to prep and throw into the crockpot.
