Anyone have any recommendations for a programmable crockpot? How do they work? Do they start cooking right away and then swich to a low warm at the end? Or what?

Mine which is a crockpot can be set to a heat setting for a fixed time and then it goes to warm. This works well for us as a family.
I don't know about other models.

I made pulled bbq pork in my crock last week. It was easy peasy.

Add 1 can of beef broth and boneless pork ribs. Cook all day on low. Shred.

Add 1 bottle of BBQ sauce and cook for about 1/2 an hour in the oven. (I think this is more to dry it out a bit and make the flavors meld maybe?).

That's it. My oldest son (12) LOVED it.

Wow, I love this thread. Something I do that is a favorite I learned from my daughter.
I put meatballs from Costco in with a can of chunk pineapple with juice and a jar of sweet and sour sauce. Yummy over rice.

Default Crock Pot Meat Loaf

I can not take credit for this at all. I searched the internet and stumbled accross it...but it's wonderful!

Crock Pot Meat Loaf Recipe

2 1/4 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup breadcrumbs or crushed crackers
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large onion (diced)
1/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Form into a meatloaf shape that will fit into your crock pot.

Cut a strip of foil and place under the meatloaf in crock pot. (DON'T SKIP THIS STEP --- It saved me from a real mess!!) Cut it long enough to cover the bottom and sides of meatloaf.

Place meat loaf in crock pot and top with an additional 2 tablespoons ketchup. (I omitted the ketchup on top because of my kids, but it turned out just fine.)

Cover and cook on low for approximately 8 hours. (Mine was done after 7.5 hours.)

Enjoy!

I'm eating it now and it is!!! (Also, I substituted 1/2 packet of Onion Soup mix instead of the onion, but would probably chop the onion next time!)

Does the meatloaf look like meatloaf? (Brown?) I had a bad experience once as a teenager when my Mom didn't tell me I had to take the foil off the meatloaf to brown it at the end. Let's just say that noone would eat it at the potluck because it looked raw!

Is it cooked through, yes...is it browned (kinda crusty) like it would be in the oven, no. But there is no doubt in looking at it that it is cooked.
Sorry, hope that helps!

Couldn't you put it under the broiler for a few minutes? That would at least brown up the top. Just a suggestion.

I have been on a crock pot crusade lately. I bought a book Fix it and Forget it Big cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good. If you want to invest in a book it's well worth it. The one I've made several times already is

Chicken Tortilla Soup

4 Chicken breast halves
2 : 15oz can of black beans, undrained
2 : 15oz cans Mexican stewed tomatoes or Rotel Tomatoes (I've used the original Rotel tomatoes)
1 : cup of salsa your choice of heat (It's so close to one jar I picked ortega medium.)
1 : 4oz can chopped green chilis
1 : 14.5oz can tomato sauce
tortilla chips
2 cups of shredded cheese

Combine all ingredients except chips and cheese in large slow cooker (4-5 quart recommened but I have a 6 qt, and it's perfect)

Cover. Cook on Low 7-8 hours

Just before serving remove chicken breasts and slice into bite size pieces. Stir into soup. However the chicken is so tender I just pull it apart so it's like shredded chicken.

to serve put a handful of chips in each individual soup bowl. Ladke soup over chips and top with cheese.

This is by far my favorite. It's a perfect kick for me using the medium. I like that you can shoose the heat. I brought this to a cousin's house warming party and everyone loved it. I had to give her the recipie so that she could share it with others that came to the party.

I made the yummy corn in post #151 again for Thanksgiving.

I did add a whole 32 ounces of frozen corn to the crockpot and it came out great!

This is SO easy, and amazingly good. I double the recipe (I have a big crockpot) and divide it up into freezer bags (squeeze flat for stacking) then thaw when needed. It also has no added fat!

Wonderful for nachoes, burritoes, taco salad, taco pizza, anything you like. Enjoy!

HOMEMADE REFRIED BEANS
INGREDIENTS
• 1 onion, peeled and halved
• 3 cups dry pinto beans, rinsed
• 1/2 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
• 2 tablespoons minced garlic
• 3 teaspoons salt
• 1 3/4 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
• 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
• 9 cups water
•
DIRECTIONS
1. Place the onion, rinsed beans, jalapeno, garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin into a slow cooker. Pour in the water and stir to combine. Cook on High for 8 hours, adding more water as needed. Note: if more than 1 cup of water has evaporated during cooking, then the temperature is too high.
Once the beans have cooked, strain them, and reserve the liquid. Mash the beans with a potato masher, adding the reserved water as needed to attain desired consistency.

This is awesome... never have to buy those ones in the can with the mystery ingredients again! Got a nice little stash in my freezer now. THANKS!!!

Can I put a whole frozen chicken in the crockpot? Or do I need to pre-thaw it? I keep forgetting to take it out of the freezer in advance! LOL.

I don't see why not, but it will take awhile to cook.

I cook whole chickens thawed in 8-10 hours on low.

Anything with chicken breasts I use frozen otherwise they are overcooked by the time I get home from work.

I put a turkey breast in my crock pot frozen and it works out great, so I think a chicken would work too.

This is good to know! The Crockpot book/manual says to NEVER put frozen meat in the crockpot so I'd never tried it. I'm glad to know I can.

Thanks!!!

they probably just say that to cover their butts in case someone would get food poisoning with the cooking so slow there would be a longer time when the temp is between the "safe" cold and hot tremp.

Oh my, I love this recipe as well but never got back to say it. Was wondering if you could up the amount of corn in this recipe. Did you change the amounts of the other ingredients as well. Wanted to make this for Christmas dinner this year since all the grandkids loved it when I made it for them the last time they were here.

Thanks!

Mmmmm....sounds good! Why did your kids not like them? The bell peppers? (that would totally turn off my 4 year old - he's just like his gramma!) Looks kinda like a sloppy joe but hamburger-style! I might have to try this!

Yes the peppers and onions. And my oldest ds is just a picky eater...more texture than anything.

Ha! I knew it! =)

My husband's mom would always pick off the peppers when we'd go have pizza. She passed away in an accident last summer.

Now whenever we have pizza, my son will pick off the bell peppers and we'll have a conversation that, in general, goes: Gramma didn't like bell peppers. Does Jesus like bell peppers? (since we told him that Gramma went to live with Jesus) I don't think Jesus likes bell peppers. Gramma, Jesus and I don't like bell peppers!

It's always nice to think of such a nice lady in such random moments! God winks, I think!

Ok, sorry for the hijack...back to your regularly scheduled thread...

Default Here's one I tried today

1 Pork tenderloin
1 onion (ruff chopped)
1 can Black Beans
1 half bottle Jerk merinade
1 cup chicken stock


put tenderloin in slow cooker, pour merinade and chicken stock over pork, add beans, and chopped onion. Cook on high for 4 hours. I cooked some brown rice in chicken stock, and added some of the 'gravy' from the pork when I served it.

This was a hugh hit with my DH. We shredded the remaining pork, mixed it with the rice and 'gravy' to take for lunch tomorrow.
