Ot ~ What's your go to crockpot meal?
With school approaching our schedules tend to get busier! So that got me thinkinng about starting to use my crockpot. I don't really having any great recipe for the crockpot and I was hoping we could all share some go to recipes you use for the crockpot.
Here are mine. I know it's not much that's why I started this thread to get some ideas...
Cook chicken breast or pork loin in seasoned water. When done shread and poor bbq sauce on. Serve on buns.
Make spagetti sauce in the morning and let it simmer all day.
And lastly maybe a roast but dh tends to do this.
That's basically all I have so what are your go to crockpot recipes?

Chicken breasts and a jar of salsa. Once it's done shred it, put it on a tortilla and add cheese. Super simple.

1 can tomato juice
1 can each whole kernal corn, red kidney beans, and your choice of another bean, all drained
1 can pork and beans, undrained
1 package dry taco seasoning
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp chili powder, adjust to your liking
1 lb gr beef
1/2 onion, diced
Brown beef and onion. Add this and all other ingredients to crockpot. Low for 4 hr.
I like because becasue there is very little measuring, mainly "throwing stuff" in. And if I choose, can eyeball the brown sugar.
Top with sour cream, shredded Mexican cheese, or your choice, and tortilla chips.
Just be prepared for lots of bathroom trips

chicken (i use boneless, skinless thighs), a carton chicken stock, season with garlic powder and onion powder, one can chicken broth, add water until level is good. Cook on low all day. 30 minutes until dinner time, use pre-broughy refrigerated biscuit dough (pillsbury buttermilk, etc) and pinch off the biscuits and add to pot. Stir and cover for about 5 minutes. Delicious chicken and dumplings!!
pork roast, 12-20 ounces of root beer. Let cook on low all day. Remove roast, drain out root beer. Put roast back, add bbq sauce, and shred it up. Let it sit for a few minutes on warm. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite cole slaw on top of the shredded pork.
Marinate chicken in a bottle of teryaki (sp?) sauce. Kroger has a great bottled one that says it's a 30 minute marinade. I always leave them over night. Then add the chicken with a little marinade into the crock pot in the morning and cook on low all day. Serve with veggies!

Spread an envelope of onion soup mix in bottom of crockpot. Lay a pork roast on it (3#ish). Squish a can of cranberry sauce on it. Let it cook!
You can thicken the liquid after you take out the roast with a little flour and water for gravy.

Well this one is simple but we love beans and rice. My favorite is lima beans and then all I have to do is put on a pot of rice or cornbread to go with it. My husband loves blackeye peas with rice. Chili of course is another easy one for the crockpot.

My favourite meal, period, is pork roast in the crock pot. I use a some Lemon Garlic Pepper simmering sauce (the brand is Renee's, but it is only available in Canada...perhaps you have something similar there). I put in a frozen boneless pork loin, about 2-2.5 lbs, and pour some of the finishing sauce on top (maybe a third of a cup) and let it cook on high for about 4 hours or so. If I cook it during the week, I put it on the "keep warm" setting of the crock pot for the whole day. I pour the drippings into a small pot and season with a packet of chicken flavoured Oxo or Bovril.
It is delicious with mashed potatoes and steamed carrots/broccoli/green beans and the gravy is fantastic!

I have "beef stew" in mine.
layer carrots and potatoes in the bottom. (I used baby carrots and salt potatoes cut in cubes 'cause that's what I had.) Lay a chuck roast on top, then a can of mushroom soup, a packet of onion soup mix, and 1-2 cans of water.
When the beef is soft we shred it up and it's yummy.

Bottom roast with one can of cream of mushroom soup and one envelope of Lipton Onion Soup mix. Cook on low 8-9 hours. It makes the most amazing gravy. I serve with cut up potatoes and carrots. It's a Sunday type dinner with a Monday type effort.
