Crock Pot Recipes

With all the talk of the Instant Pot, what crock pot recipes are your favorites? I have a couple of websites where I like to get recipes, but I would love it if some of you could share yours.

Dump the following into your crock pot:

1 Chuck roast
2 cans low sodium cream of mushroom soup
1 can french onion soup

Cook on low at least 8 hours.
Serve roast with gravy over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

I love my crock pot, but only for very simple and easy recipes. Here's my favorite:


Dump one can of black beans and one can of corn in crock pot. Add some salsa and stir.
Place chicken in crock pot.
Pour more salsa over top.
Cook for 8 hours.

Serve with cheese and sour cream over rice.

I make chili in the crockpot, but everyone has their favorite chili ingredients so I won’t dig out the recipe.

I love Salsa Chicken, which I learned right here at PT.
*about 6 chicken breasts
*1 jar of salsa
Cook on low 5-6 hours or until chicken is fork-tender. Shred chicken with 2 forks and mix with sauce.
Use in tacos or on salad. I like cold leftovers, too.

I only use my crock pot for a couple things, frijoles and chicken stock. The one meal I make in the crockpot is Mississippi Pot Roast. I don't love the packet of ranch, but I get over it because it is super delish. We shred it and make tacos.

Amiga, if you like salsa chicken - try this recipe for chicken tacos! It just adds a few ingredients...and a bit of an extra punch to it.

4 chicken breasts
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 chopped green pepper
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 jar salsa

Serve in hard or soft taco shells (sour cream and sh. cheese optional.)

Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes
Oops, I realized we have 3 versions of salsa chicken. I'll post another favorite that is a little different:

Thought they took too much electricity and i was not allowed to have one. I have always been interested in them and 12 years single and I realize I still have zero experience...

Thank you for the thread I will be interested to find out the best recipes. I am going back into the classroom and can already smell chicken all cooked as I walk in the door after a full day with children!

I don't know what an Instapot is...

red beans
Old 06-27-2019, 05:25 AM

We love red beans in the crock pot! They take too long on the stove, so it's nice to come home to them ready.

Red Beans & Rice

1 lb dried red kidney beans
1 quart water (I put enough to cover a few inches above beans)
1 package sausage link (we prefer Conecuh brand original!), sliced
1 smoked ham bone
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon thyme
1 bayleaf
3 cups hot cooked rice (use the instant version when you're ready to serve)

Soak beans overnight in water. Put all ingredients, except the rice, in the crock pot. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Take out bone and bayleaf. Use fork or immersion blender to mash the beans a touch (not much - like a cup's worth). Cook rice and serve beans over the rice with a salad on the side.

**FYI, if you're low on funds at any time, leave out the sausage and it's a super cheap meal! The sausage is amazing though, and adds just the right amount of heat.

Another vote for Mississippi Roast. The recipe given me used packets that were very high sodium but I found similar ones at Sprouts that have much lower sodium.
I do mostly pot roasts and pork roasts, an occasional Drunken Chicken, chili and stews.

pulled pork
Old 06-27-2019, 01:22 PM

Pulled pork is super easy. I make a dry rub, then pour some BBQ sauce over the top (Sweet Baby Ray's but you can use what you like). When it is done, I shred it in the kitchen aid using the paddle attachment! That's a trick I learned on PT

I make pulled pork too.

But I cook the pork all day, then pour off the juices. Then I use forks to pull it apart and then add barbecue sauce. We like famous Dave’s sweet and zesty.

I make beef stew in the crock pot. A pkg of stew meat, a chopped onion, baby carrots, peeled and chopped potatoes. And whatever else you want in. Add salt and pepper. Thicken with cornstarch before serving.

Stupid Easy Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs
Old 06-27-2019, 07:00 PM
  #13

One that I make often & healthy & delicious:

One medium spaghetti squash.
One pound of ground Italian sausage.
28 oz can crushed tomatoes (with basil is great)
2 tbsp of hot pepper relish (optional).
4 to 6 cloves of garlic, whole.
2 tbsp of olive oil.
Italian seasoning (Oregano, Basil, Thyme) to taste

Dump your tomato sauce, olive oil, garlic, hot pepper relish and Italian seasoning into your slow cooker and stir well.
Cut your squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
Place your 2 squash halves face down into your slow cooker.
Roll your ground sausage into meatballs, then fit as many as you can in the sauce around & under the squash.
Cook on High for 3 hours or cook on low for 5 hours.
Use a large fork to pull the “spaghetti” out of your squash, then top with your meatballs and sauce.
Serve by itself or over pasta.

Thanks for sharing! I definitely want to make several of the recipes I see here.

I'll share one that I made today from Skinny Taste. It's picante chicken and black bean soup, and it was delicious!
