    Talking Crockpot Recipes w/6 Ingredients or Less

    Less ingredients = less cost

    I want to try the appetizer recipes. Often I think of using the CP for main dishes and nothing else.

    I am going to make this one tomorrow when Dave isn't home for dinner (since he won't eat mushrooms):

    http://southernfood.about.com/od/cro...ef/r/bl8c3.htm

    Easy ground beef and potatoes, a meal in one pot, cooked in the slow cooker. Ingredients:


    • 1 1/2 pound lean ground beef
    • 1 large clove garlic, minced
    • 1/4 tsp. pepper
    • 1/2 tsp. leaf thyme
    • 4 to 6 medium potatoes
    • 2 large onions
    • 1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
    • 1/4 cup water

    Preparation:

    Cook ground beef and garlic in skillet until lightly browned. Stir in pepper and thyme. Peel and slice potatoes and onions. Put 1/2 potatoes and onions into buttered Crock Pot. Add browned beef and top with remaining potatoes and onions. Mix mushroom soup with water and spread over top of contents. Cover. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.

    I think I'm going to use cooking spray vs. butter to make it healthier too. I'm going to make homemade cream of mushroom soup too vs. the canned stuff.

    This is my favorite:

    Pork roast
    sliced or baby carrots
    taco seasoning

    place carrots in bottom, roast on carrots, sprinkle taco seasoning.

    You could eat this with tortillas or rice, but it's good just as it is. The combination makes a nice juice/gravy on the bottom.

    Default Easy crock pot chicken bake

    Take 1 can of cream of (chicken, celery, mushroom, whatever) soup, mix in with 1 package prepped stuffing and one can mixed mixed veggies.

    Place split chicken breast on top, cook until chicken is done (4-5 hours on low?).

    Tastes great, cheap, easy.

    Yes, it's really cheap if you stock up around the holidays when cranberr sauce is cheap.

    Extra bonus -- My husband makes it and has it ready when I come home from work!

    Try a beef roast and a can of REAL Coke. Nothing else. Really works.

    Chopped Barbecue Chicken

    2 or more cooked chicken breasts/pork loin/beef shredded.
    One bottle or more of your favorite barbecue sauce.
    Enough onions to cover the bottom of the crockpot.

    Spray Pam or oil inside of the crockpot. Layer the bottom with onions. Shred seasoned cooked meat and place on top of onions. Pour barbecue sauce on top of meat. Cook for 3 hours or more depending on how much you're making.
    Eat plain or serve on kaiser/hero/hamburger rolls.

    I got a crockpot "pizza potatoes" recipe from our very own Village cookbook. It was just sliced potatoes (raw), then a can of meat sauce (spaghetti, pizza, etc.) and shredded cheese, I think. It was VERY good in a comfort food sort of way.

    With a busy lifestyle, crockpot meals are wonderful. They are even better is they have less ingredients to worry with. :high5:
