Crock Pot Cookin!

18 posts in this topic

Any good crock pot recipes out there? I'm getting bored with beef stew, chili and potroast! They're great, but I'd like some variety.

hoggs222 you need to go out and get the Fix-it and Forget-it cookbook. There are lots of recipes and my personal favorite is the Piquant French Dip.

Piquant French Dip

make 8 servings

3-lb chuck roast

2 cups water

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tsp dried rosemary

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp garlic powder

1 bay leaf

3-4 peppercorns (I put in 10-15)

8 french rolls

1. Place roast in slow cooker. Add water ,soy sauce and seasonings.

2. Cover. Cook on high 5-6 hours, or until beef is tender.

3. Remove beef from broth. Shred with fork. Keep warm.

4. Strain broth. Skim fat. Pour broth into small cup for dipping. Serve beef on rolls.

Note: If you have leftover broth, freeze it to use later for gravy or as a soup base.

Italian Moose Roast Sandwiches

1 (4 pound) moose roast (or any type venison)

10 cloves garlic

10 cubes beef bouillon

1 (16 ounce) jar sliced pepperoncini peppers, with liquid

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian salad dressing mix

12 (6 inch) hard-crusted French rolls

Cut 20 small, deep slits all over the roast; stuff the slits with garlic and bouillon cubes, and place into a slow cooker. Drain half of the liquid from the peppers, then pour the remaining peppers and liquid over the roast. Season with Worcestershire sauce, and sprinkle the Italian dressing mix over everything.

Cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours until the meat can easily be pulled apart. Shred the meat finely, and serve piled high on French rolls; dip into juices if desired.

Sometimes I'll add a slice of provolone on my sandwiches.

Finally tried this one last night, we've been meaning to for a while. Used venison instead of beef and beef broth instead of water, melted mozzarella on the rolls - It was fantastic!! Definitely a keeper and the left overs are looking good for lunch today.

Made this one this weekend. Absolutely fantastic. Could have used more peppers for the amount of meat I used.

You can also try your standard pulled pork sandwiches using the crock pot.

Just let a pork roast simmer for the day with the right amount of liquid. The fun part is experimenting with the bbq sauce. I don't like to use the stuff right out of the bottle. I'll use it as a starting point sometimes but I like to adjust it to find some new flavors. I just play with it until I think tastes good, everytime its something different. Problem is its hard to reproduce the next time becuase I can never remember what I put into it.

I made pulled pork the next day. Smoked it for about 2 hours, threw it on the grill for about 30 mins to brown it, and then in the crock pot for 14 hours. Used onion soup mix, a variety of spices, a bunch of onions, root beer, apple juice, a touch of vinegar, and some off the shelf bbq sauce. This was excellent as well.

LRG, Glad you liked it.

It's my mom's recipe that everyone loved last year at deer camp. I don't know where she got it, but I've seen it since on a couple of different websites. I think the amount of peppers in any recipe is up to the user...I use a little more myself! wink

hoggs222, Do you have a 'Barnes and Noble' bookstore nearby?? They have a Crock Pot Cookbook that's GREAT!! If you're looking for ideas, just page through it, If it impresses you, put it in your library. Phred52

delcecchi, The Library's a good suggestion! I was refering to the 'Better Homes and Gardens: Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes'. 416 pages for about $18. I had to go and get it out of the rack. Been since last spring that I looked at it. Phred52

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
