Question Favorite Crockpot Main Dish

I'm looking to use my crockpot more so I would like to know what everyone's favorite main dish recipe is.

What dishes have you found that don't do well in a crock pot?

Roberta

Hi Roberta,
I guess I haven't found to much that doesn't work in a crock pot if you start it soon enough.
I especially love a roast done in the crock pot with potatoes, carrots and onions. Add some onion soup mix or condensed and it comes out so tender.....

Honey Smoked Brisket

Roberta, our family has 2 new favorites. I will post them seperately. This is sooooo good!!

Honey Smoked Brisket
Place a 3 to 4 pound beef brisket on a large piece of aluminum foil, Sprinkle generously with 1/4 cup of liquid smoke and 1/2 tsp. each of celery salt, garlic salt and onion powder. Wrap well and put into stoneware. Cover and cook on low 10 hours (high 6 hours). Slice brisket into thin slices. Serve warm with juices poured over each slice.

I omit the celery salt and use the spice packet. This is great!! I hope you enjoy
Susie

Country Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Country Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
8 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 onion chopped
1 lb. fully cooked ham, cut into 1" cubes
1 package(1 ounce) country-style gravy
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
2 cups water
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Combine potatoes, onion and ham in lightly greased stoneware. Combine gravy mix, mushroom soup and water; whisk until combined. Pour gravy mixture over potatoes. Cover and cook on low 8 hours(high 4 hours). Top with cheese during last 30 minutes. NOTE: To prevent darkening of potatoes, toss sliced uncooked potatoes in a mixture of 1 cup water and 1/2 tsp. cream of tarter; drain and proceed with recipe.

This is very good too
Susie

Susie those sound great. I have a cookbook for crock pot but they have ingredents/spices that we don't use. Guess I could ask friends if they have the spices and borrow 1/2 tsp to try some of them. Hate to spend $2-5 for a spice I might never use again. So I'm looking for "normal" (grin) food to cook in the crock.


Do you know if you do a soup in a crock pot that you would normally cook on the stove for 2 hours how long would you do it in the crock?

Thanks
Roberta

I have cooked vegetable soup in my crockpot. It only took about 6 hours on low. What kind of soup are you making?



I have made yummy bar-b-qued pork for sandwiches too. I cooked 1/2 of a pork loin for about 10 hours on low---only add pork and a little water. Pull it apart with 2 forks and add bar-b-que sauce and let cook for another 10 minutes. It was soooo good!!

My family loves this.

Cheesy Crockpot Chicken

2lbs boneless,skinless chicken breast

2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Place chicken in crockpot. Mix UNDILUTED soups and garlic powder and pour over chicken. Replace lid. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs or HIGH 3-4 hrs or until chicken is done.

I also cook about 2 cups of wide egg noodles and add them to the chicken mixture. There is hardly any left for leftovers the next day. I hope you like it.

Soups that I normally make are ham & beans and chili. DH isn't real fond of vegetable soup so I normally stay away from those.

Cheesy chicken sounds good.

All of these crockpot recipes sound delicious.

I hate to use the stove in the summer, and these recipes will come in handy.

My friend Patti, Pag36, emails me great new recipes on a regular basis. Some of her offerings have been lifesavers. Thanks again, Patti.

Hugs,
