I recently purchased a Crock Pot in order to prepare meals in advance and save money. I've never owned one before so I'm not all that sure as to what are some good things to make with a Crock Pot.
I know we Ragers NEVER talk about food
but I was curious if anyone out there had some yummy recipes they like to use.
Yes, Dear Herby, you will be happy to know that I will be doing a lot of cooking from now on.
When 99 gets home I'm sure she has lots of crock pot recipes. I'll pass on the message. She's a great cook.
Here's a recipe for my
"World Famous" SLOBBERGOLLY: In a crockpot combine the follwing: 1 med. boneless, skinless chicken breast browned 1 or 2 links of Italian or Cajun or Chorizzo sausage browned 2 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled. 1 can of broth &2 cans of water. 1 can of black beans 1/4 cup uncooked rice. 1-2 stalks of celery chopped 1 onion chopped 3-4 cloves minced garlic 1/2 each of red, green, yellow, orange bell peppers--chopped 1 can of mushrooms 1 can of green chillies Add basil, oregeno, thyme, a couple tbs of worcestershire & tobasco sauce to broth. Cook all day long in crock pot earl PS. Unless your spouse eats equal amounts as you, you might figure on sleeping on the couch that night with the windows open
I thought that said Crack pot recipes, I was going to say, I know a few crack pots.
This recipe is super quick and easy
1/4 cup water or red wine 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup 1 pouch (2 ounces) dry onion soup mix
6 small potatoes, cut in half or quarters 6 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 3 cups) 3 -to 3 1/2-pound boneless beef bottom round roast or chuck pot roast Place potatoes and carrots in the bottom of a 4 1/2-quart slow cooker. Add the beef and pour the onion soup, mushroom soup and water or wine over everything. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours* or until the beef is fork-tender. *Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
I am going to e-mail my friend in New Mexico and ask her for her brother's recipe on ribs. He made them for my wife and I last year and they fell right off the bone! We have a crock pot, it is one of my wife's shower gifts, but we haven't used it yet. So, hang tight and I will get it to you asap! Vito
wow!! I love this, Margo, I am writing down your recipe now, and can't wait to get Vito,s ribs, yum! yum! Good idea Courtney, I don,t think the queen nor herb will mind. Linda
What I do is take a little "Aaron", add some "Ben", go heavy on the "Mickey", sprinkle a heavy dose of "Hunter" and then smother all of that with a whole lot of "RHONDA" and you've got the very best of "RHONDA and the RAGE". It don't get no better than that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you got moved and settled into a whole lot of learning! Mark, Paul and Paityn Rose...
I don't like wine unless it is dessert sweet so I wouldn't know what kind of wine to use but I would like to try this. Any suggestions to what kind you have used? Thanks to Margo & Earl - I'm going to try both of these recipes - Mary G
Mary, I think she meant the red cooking wine, it would be with the marinating sauces, I believe, and it says red cooking wine on the bottle. i have used it in a few recipes, it just flavors up the dish. I am going to make it too, and waiting for Vito's recipe. See ya Linda
I have been trying to post a site on here with no success. I have a crock pot recipe site with more recipes than will fit on here but the only way I seem to be able to get it to you is by email. I will gladly forward it to anyone who wants it or to just one of you and you can forward it along. My email address is
Mary I never cook with any wine that I won't drink. I find cooking wine that you buy in the supermarket to be way too salty. I usually use cabernet, merlot, pinot noir, or Chianti. If you do not want use something alcoholic the recipe works just as well if you replace the wine with water. Hope this helps.
Oh! sorry Margo, glad you wrote back, now I will go out and buy the real stuff, lol. Thanks again Linda
