  1. I think it is about time I get myself one of these as, like you said, it would be really convenient. The start of the year always means a lot of rushing for me and having this in my kitchen may help me have more homemade food than takeouts.

  2. Congrats Russ! Happy Cooking πŸ™‚

  3. Hard to make a choice of what my favorite comfort food from a crockpot is. My choices would have to be a toss up of some kind of pasta dish such as crockpot rigatoni to mac & cheese. I’m also partial to homemade soups/stews especially this time of year when it cold outside. When in a rush though, either a pot roast or a roast pork fills the spot. Thank you for being able to enter this contest. A new crockpot to go along with my older one would be ideal to make sides in or to be able to prepare bigger portions for the freezer to save time & money.

  47. Mine is our old family recipe for Chicken Noodle Soup! Once it’s starting getting chilly outside that’s the soup that’s cooking inside!!

  48. I love chili and beef stew in the crock pot for winter.

  49. I recently discovered the versatility of my slow cooker. It’s the best way (short of an outside grill) to slow cook meats. Here’s my recipe for PULLED PORK SANDWICHES:

    Small White Bread Buns or large, wrap style, tortillas
    a 3-4lbs pork ‘picnic roast’, you can use ‘boneless country style ribs’ instead…shop sales!
    Taco Seasoning Mix
    Dehydrated Onion Flakes
    Gouda cheese slices or cheddar shreds
    1000 island dressing, mayo works too
    pickle chips

    (everything but the seasoned pork is optional)

    Put your pork roast in the slow cooker with about 1″ of water…wet the top of the roast as you load it, to keep the seasoning in place. Slow cook on ‘high’ for 8 hours. When you get home from work it will be done. Remove and drain off any juices. You can reserve them for au jus or discard at this point. Shred the pork between tongs until it’s stringy. Add in a little bbq sauce if desired, or just have it available at room temperature. Return to the slow cooker, set to ‘keep warm’ now. You can leave this out for your kids to make their own sandwiches as they come and go, or for game day guests. It’s perfect for crazy week nights or to make on a Friday night and have available all day Saturday.

  50. My favorite recipe is Lasagne. I hope I am lucky.

  51. Chile…with cornbread.

  52. A good crockpot chili or chicken ‘n dumplings ~~ yum!

  53. It’s really hard to have only one favorite. I tried a new recipe a few days ago for Cauliflower Coconut Soup. I think that’s going to be a new favorite!

  61. Potato corn chowder

  62. I have cooked a meatloaf in my crockpot

  63. Love good chili from a crock pot

  64. Yankee Pot Roast

  65. 1
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Add salt and pepper to taste and cover the dish.

    Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes. Allow the chicken to cool until you can handle it.

    Place the cooled chicken breasts on a cutting board. Cut it into finely shredded pieces and set it aside.

    Combine the broth and the soup in the stockpot and mix well. Add the frozen vegetables and the shredded chicken, and stir.

    Heat the soup, on medium heat, until it simmers.

    Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.

    Separate each biscuit by their layers — usually a top, middle and bottom layer. You should have 24 biscuit pieces.

    Dredge the biscuit pieces in the seasoned flour and gently place them into the hot soup. Continue until all the biscuit pieces are in the soup.

    Push the biscuits beneath the surface of the soup gently with a spoon, but do not stir. If you stir, the biscuits will disintegrate.

    Simmer the biscuits until they set completely — about five to 10 minutes.

    Remove from the heat and serve immediately.

    1/4 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
    3/4 teaspoons Salt
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1/3 cup Minced Flat-leaf Parsley

    10 slices Thin/regular Bacon
    1-1/2 cup Ketchup

    With clean hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a broiler pan, which will allow the fat to drain. (Line the bottom of the pan with foil to avoid a big mess!)
    Lay bacon slices over the top, tucking them underneath the meatloaf.
    Make the sauce: add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and hot sauce in a mixing bowl. Stir together. Pour 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the bacon. Spread with a spoon.

My newly found favorite is a buffalo chicken sandwich recipe that I found online and made “kid-friendly”. I am an Alabama country girl that only measures when solving math problems and when baking cakes…so bear with me:

    All you do is, in a crockpot, add an adequate amount (enough for seconds) of sliced, boneless/skinless chicken breast, sprinkle with a little garlic powder ground cumin, white pepper, chipotle pepper, and pour in some EXTRA MILD buffalo sauce over the chicken to generously coat the slices and mix well. Turn the crock on “Low” for 4hrs, stir and serve on a bun! My fave…Kaiser! Bake up some sweet potato fries and watch the smiles begin!

    Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Port and Stilton Gravy

    8 lbs. beef prime rib (4 rib joint)
    2 onions, peeled, cut into 1/3-inch rounds
    2 tablespoons garlic oil
    1 1/2 teaspoons Maldon sea salt or 3/4 teaspoon table salt
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Port and Stilton Gravy:
    2 tablespoons fatty juices, reserved from the roast beef pan
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup ruby port
    1 tablespoon cooked onions from the roast beef pan, optional
    2 cups beef stock
    4 1/2 ounces blue cheese (recommended: Stilton)
    1 teaspoon red currant jelly
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Extra juices from the roast beef

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
    Take beef out of the refrigerator to bring to room temperature, which could take 1 hour or more.
    Put the onion slices into a roasting pan and sit the beef on top of them. Use the onion slices as props to help the rib sit up on its bones in an “L” shape. Smear the oil over the white fat of the rib, and sprinkle with the salt, thyme and cayenne pepper. Cook according to the beef’s weight and your taste. For medium rare give it 15 minutes per pound, which means, for a roast this size, a cooking time of about 2 hours unless the beef is straight out of the refrigerator, in which case, add another 20 minutes or so. If you want medium, give the roast, from room temperature, 20 minutes per pound, and if you like well-done meat, 30 minutes per pound.
    When the beef comes out of the oven, remove to a carving board and allow it to rest in a warm part of the kitchen under a tent of foil for 30 minutes before carving; or just leave, tented in its foil, for the same time. Do not start clearing up the pan, even if you have taken the beef out, however, as you will need some of the pan juices and onions for the gravy.

    Port and Stilton Gravy:
    In a saucepan over low heat, add 2 tablespoons of the fatty juices from the roast pan. To make a roux, whisk in the flour, and then the port. Keep heating and whisking over a fairly gentle heat, until thick and bubbling. If you want to blend the onions into the stock, do so now. Be sure to avoid adding any blackened onions. Put the onions in a blender with the beef stock and mix together. Or leave the stock just as it is. Take the saucepan off the heat, and gradually whisk in the beef stock. Whisk in the blue cheese and red currant jelly. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Pour in any juices that remain in the pan or on the cutting board. Transfer to gravy boat and serve with the beef.

  445. Italian Wedding Soup

  446. Sausage Tortilla Soup

    β€’ Yield Serves 6
    β€’ 1 tablespoon olive oil
    β€’ 4 garlic cloves, minced
    β€’ 1 pound Italian sausage (sweet or hot)
    β€’ 1 teaspoon chili powder
    β€’ 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes in juice
    β€’ 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
    β€’ 6 cups homemade tomato stock
    β€’ 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
    β€’ Coarse salt and ground pepper
    β€’ 1 cup crushed tortilla chips, plus more for serving (optional)
    β€’ 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for serving
    1. SautΓ© the sausage, breaking up into small clumps.

  451. love all the recipes posted , making me hungry! Love to make pork carnitas in the crock…. everyone LOVEs it. Recipe is from $10 dinners on Food Network

  452. My favorite and family favorite is my Grandmother’s Turkey Bone Soup. She will make this when it is very cold and snowy out.

    You start with the left over turkey carcass and remainder turkey meat from Thanksgiving. You put it in a large pot with water maybe some chicken stock, and boil it until the meat is able to pull away from the bone. As you are pulling the meat from the bones, continue to simmer the stock and add in-
    1 can of cream corn
    1 large can of tomato sauce
    whatever veggies sound good (she typically uses a vegetable medley that is pre-mixed)
    and whatever seasonings she uses (her soup is spicy from the Cajun seasonings she used on the turkey)
    Then she adds the meat back into the soup and then simmers it all day until dinner time, around 5pm.
    You can add large tender noodles like “dumpling” or fiesta colored spiral noodles if desired
    The soup is wonderfully complemented with cornbread.
    It will yield however many servings depending on how much meat and broth you made. She makes a rather large batch to eat on for a few days. Four can eat on it for about two days

    I have such wonderful fond childhood memories of playing in the snow all day sledding, snow ball fights, just laying in the snow from being exhausted after going up and down the hills, or until my skin was cold and pink, then being told to walk to Grandma’s house because she made turkey bone soup. It is such a healthy and hearty soup to thaw out to eating. It doesn’t take much to fill up on this hearty soup.

  453. My favorite is Potato Soup with sausage and bacon. Although not a complete start from the crock pot, this is the best by far soup I’ve ever had. It’s comparable to the Olive Garden Zupa Tascana soup. Potatoes, heavy cream, italian sausage, dry red chili peppers, onion, and kale.

    Warms you from the inside out.

  461. Veal Osso Bucco with creamy cheesy polenta and good old Chicken N Dumplings. Love making and enjoying these dishes with family and friends.

    1 large red onion, diced
    1 medium red bell pepper, diced
    1 medium yellow bell pepper, diced
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 pound ground buffalo/venison, etc
    8 ounces Italian sausage, casing removed
    1/4 cup chili powder
    1 tablespoon ground cumin
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    One 4-ounce can tomato paste
    One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
    One 14-ounce can diced tomatoes
    One 15-ounce can cannollini beans, drained and rinsed
    One 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    One 15-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    Shredded Cheddar, for garnish
    Sour cream, for garnish
    Chopped green onions, for garnish
    Add the olive oil to a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the onions and peppers and saute until soft. Add the garlic and saute until just fragrant. Stir in the beef and sausage, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, and cook until browned. Drain the beef mixture through a colander placed over a large bowl. Add the meat back to the Dutch oven and stir in the chili powder, cumin and oregano. Cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste into the beef; this will “toast” it and give the chili more flavor. Transfer everything to the slow cooker. Add the diced tomatoes and beans. Cook on low for 4 hours.

  609. Ham Hocks and Lima Beans

    1 pound package dried lima beans
    2 pounds smoked ham hock
    2 TBS butter
    1 TBS olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped – small dice
    2 large celery stalks, chopped – small dice
    2 large carrots, washed and chopped – small dice
    1 1/2 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1 1/2 bay leaves
    salt to taste

    In a large bowl, cover dried beans with 8 cups cold water, let stand overnight. Drain beans, reserving water.
    In large pot, melt butter mixed with olive oil, create a mirepoix au gras – saute onion, celery and carrots until softened, then add the ham hocks and add reserved water to cover. Cover, heat to to boiling, then reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Add the beans, and everything except salt. Add any remaining water – note: you might have to add some new water as you will be simmering for a very long time.
    Simmer for 5 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. The lima beans will be recognizably lima bean, yet will have lost some of their integrity and texture, absorbing delicious pork flavor, while giving up some of their starch to the liquid helping create a near stew like consistency. Remove the bay leaves and discard. You can remove the meat and fat from the bones, and discard the bones – and fat if desired.

    1 cup flour
    5 cubed potatoes
    1 bag carrots (peeled and slice)
    celery (3 stalks, cleaned and sliced)
    one large spanish onion, diced
    one can baby lima beans
    one 15 ounce can of LeSeure baby peas

    I know how to do this on top of the stove but would love a chance to prepare in a slow cooker – the meat would cook longer, become more tender and this is a great belly filling dinner to come home to on a cold night! Serve with garlic bread and some Locatelli cheese grated and tossed liberally on the stew!

    baked Potato soup

    Cut the potatoes about 1/2-1 inch cubes (like for Mashed potatoes)
    Dice an onion
    Garlic (to taste)
    salt and Pepper (to taste)
    Put slow cooker covered with water (on Low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours) NOTE: My slow cooker isn’t slow πŸ™ so adjust for your cooker
    NOTE: If it is too thin for your tastes add some instant potatoes to thicken before adding milk.
    about 30 minutes before serving add about
    1 C of milk
    1/2 C shredded cheese
    bacon bits
    serve with a dollop of sour cream and chives

    To my family this tastes like a Baked Potato with the works. I have seen several variations on this recipe but this is a VERY basic one that I came up with all on my own on the stove and adjusted to the slow cooker.

    Hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚
