    Default looking for TNT crock pot recipes

    that don't require much liiquid stuff. . . . we'll be taking the inverter and small crockpot with us on vacation- so dinner can cook while we drive. . . but I don't want to have to pack a gazillion bottles of sauces, etc.

    Canned stuff, dry stuff , is ok----

    For instance- one I plan on doing is cola roast

    1 small roast
    16 oz. ketchup
    1 can cola

    Place roast in crockpot, add ketchup and cola. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

    1 pork roast
    1 can pepsi
    1 can mushroom soup

    -------------------------------------------------

    What about spaghetti? I just learned not too long ago how to do it in the crockpot. Here's the recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/69302
    I also think you could use a jar of your favorite sauce if you didn't want to mess with all of that.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You can also do boneless chicken breasts with any favorite seasonings. My grandma's caregiver does this for her-- just sprinkles them with salt, pepper, Mrs Dash, or whatever. She serves them with a veggie, mashed potatoes, etc.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Or BBQ chicken or boneless spare ribs. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper, cook on low all day, then drain the juices. Add one bottle of BBQ sauce and cook another hour on low.


    Most of my favorite crockpot recipes seem to involve lots of liquids, so that's all I can think of right now. HTH!

    Thanks Amy-- love the spaghetti one, but won't have access to any way of browning the hamburger.

    I guess I should mention that it's not the liquid in the crock that is concerning me, but rather trying to pack liquids for cooking. anything that I can add water, or an entire can of something is fine. I just don't want to pack Worchestershire sauce, liquid smoke, bottles of salad dressing, etc. (like most of my recipes require)

    We're taking the tiny crockpot-- 1 quart size. . . . . just big enough for 1 meal for the 3 of us.

    I always brown hamburger in batches and freeze it in ziplocks.  Would you have any way to keep a bag of browned hamburger on ice?   Just a thought....

    Premake a meatloaf and pop it in. I make them, and freeze them and then just pop them in frozen.

    My fav is a beef roast sprinkled with brown gravy mix, I add no liquid. The meat makes enough juice on it's own.
