Just found this thread so I thought I'd not only mark my spot (ha ha!) but also share a recipe or two. I use my crock pot ALL the time...love it and cannot live without it, especially in the summer time when it's so darn hot and I don't want to heat up my kitchen with the oven!

Roast with Gravy

1 chuck roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope dried onion soup mix (you can omit this if you want to save more carbs)
salt and pepper
vegetable oil

Season the roast well with salt and pepper. Add enough vegetable oil to a large skillet or dutch oven and brown roast on all sides. (Browning not only adds flavor, but seals in juices and keeps the roast juicy inside while cooking...skipping this can make your roast take on a dry texture, even with slow cooking, because the juices haven't been sealed inside). In a medium bowl, mix together cream of mushroom soup (undiluted) and onion soup mix. Place roast in crock pot and cover with soup mixture. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. At the end of the 6 hours, remove roast and stir gravy until smooth.

The gravy from the roast is great on baked/boiled onions or even mashed cauliflower.

------------------

This is what I'm making for the 4th of July...I tried this on Memorial Day and it was a HUGE hit. Technically this isn't Induction friendly because of the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and the diet soda, but at only 2g carbs per serving for the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, it wasn't enough to worry about imho.

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

3 1/2 lbs. pork baby back ribs
1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons liquid smoke
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 cup diet cola (I used Cherry Coke Zero)

Spray the inside of crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.

Remove silver skin from ribs. Cut ribs into 4 inch pieces. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar blend, salt, pepper, liquid smoke and chopped garlic. Rub mixture all over the rib pieces, coating well.

Layer the ribs and onion slices in the crock pot, alternating until crock is full. Pour diet cola over the ribs. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours - do not cook longer or they will absolutely fall apart.

When ribs are tender, remove from crock pot and discard liquid. Preheat grill to medium heat and place ribs on grill. Brush with barbeque sauce (recipe below). Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes.

While the ribs recipe is mine, the recipe for the sauce below came from the Splenda website...and it is absolutely delicious!

Sweet and Smoky Barbeque Sauce

3 cups reduced-sugar ketchup
1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons molasses*
1 tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons liquid smoke

*I left this out, figuring I didn't really need it since I had the brown sugar blend and it was still VERY good!

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15-18 minutes, or until slightly thickened. (Top with splatter guard during cooking...it WILL splatter!)

Use immediately or cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 month.

Serving size: 2 tablespoons, 15 calories, 3g carbs per serving

Enjoy

Going through some of my recipes now...forgot about this one, which is great in the crock pot but you can also make it in your dutch oven.

Taco Soup

2 lbs. ground beef
2 cups diced onion
1 cup chopped celery
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can rotel tomatoes
2 cans diced green chiles
1/2 cup sliced green olives
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
4 cups beef broth
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
chopped green onion
pickled jalapeno peppers

Brown the ground beef, onions, celery and garlic in a large skillet. Drain off excess fat, then transfer mixture to crock pot. Add diced tomatoes, rotel tomatoes, green chiles, black olives, green olives, taco seasoning, and ranch dressing mix. Stir well to combine. Add beef broth, cover and cook for 6-8 hours. (If using dutch oven, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low...allow to simmer for 1 hour). Serve with cheese, sour cream, pickled jalapenos and green onion garnishes.

Such wonderful recipes. Thanks to everyone who shared.
I love to use my crock pot in the summer since the oven gets the house so hot.
JudyMS your rib recipe will work perfect for the 4th of July. Thank you!

I love my crock pot. I make all sorts of things in there. I might remind you to brown your roasts on the stove top with some oil before putting it in the crock pot.

I am going to make some turkey in the crock pot. I bought a breast on sale a while ago. I've got some cranberry sauce (sugarless and lowish carbs). I am going to mix dry onion soup mix with the cranberry sauce and cook my turkey on low all day tomorrow. I will take turkey out and while it is resting make a sort of sauce to go on top with cream cheese or sour cream - depending if DH is going to partake...I have non-dairy sour cream for him and cream cheese for me. Make some zoodles, or green beans, or some veggie and it will be a fantastic meal. If you have a family that is carby - some egg noodles might be good with a side of stuffing. Or your could add the stuffing to the crock pot and add some chicken broth. That would be good but wasted at my house. DH doesn't do that many carbs and DS wouldn't eat it.

When I get half pork loins really cheap I cook one in the crockpot with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. It makes wonderful pulled pork to which you can add bbq sauce, or taco sauce, or eat with mayo/Franks sauce for dipping. So easy and good.

crockpot lasagna

1 can pizza sauce
2tbsp garlic powder(I use minced garlic)
1lb hamburger meat, cooked
2cups cottage cheese
1 medium zucchini, finely chopped
3cups fresh spinach
2-3cups mozerella cheese(depending on how much you like cheese)

Brown meat, add garlic and pizza sauce. Start with a thin layer of meat sauce, then layer cottage cheese, moz cheese, zuccini, and spinach. It makes several layers.

Don't know exact cooking times, but the next time I make it I am going to cook it on low for probably 4-5 hours. I made it yesterday and left it on high and it was too done.

This is a keeper as per my DD.

cfine, that sounds delicious...it's on my to-try-list! LOL I'm wondering though, how much does this make? I have 4 adults in my household to feed, and trust me when I tell you that my boys are big men and big eaters. Most recipes that call for 1 pound of ground beef end up being doubled. I am thinking I may need to double this too, since the spinach will also cook down?

I had a favorite recipe that I did before LC. There must be a way to adapt it. Take 2-4 frozen chicken legs (these are usually real cheap, quantity depending on size of crockpot), put into crockpot FROZEN, pour 1 bottle of bbq sauce over it, cover, then cook on low for 6-10 hours. I haven't been able to find LC BBQ sauce yet, but I do have some recipes for it.
What is great about this is since the chicken goes in frozen, it doesn't get overcooked.

MadamWu, you might want to try the BBQ sauce recipe I posted in the top post on this page (Sweet and Smokey BBQ Sauce): Induction Friendly Crock Pot Recipes?

It's really good and keeps well in the fridge. I initially made some to go on ribs, but had more than enough for bbq chicken for another meal, plus some extra for dipping (for a family of 4 adults).

This recipe made plenty for myself, my DH, and my DD. We had leftovers too. I guess if I had a feed several men I would double it. The spinach cooks way down.

Crockpot Lasgana

I know this has been a year since you last posted, but this sounds really yummy. I'm definitely trying it this weekend. My recipe contribution is as follows:

1 Fryer Chicken, cleaned (neck and things can be saved for later or your cats will enjoy them)
4 Tbsp of chopped garlic
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 stick of butter
salt, pepper and paprika

Clean the chicken and put 2 Tbsp of the garlic inside the chicken. Put in crockpot. On the outside, spread the other 2 Tbsp of garlic over the chicken, sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Put about 4 pads of butter on top of the chicken, pour broth into crock and put the rest of the butter (can be whole) into the broth. Cook on low for about 6-7 hrs.

It sounds like a lot of garlic, but believe me, it isn't. The chicken falls off the bone and is moist.

The noodle-less lasagna was really yummy! Even my BF tried it and scarfed it down. I'll be making that again.

I made another crockpot recipe with chicken and bacon. I'll have to look up the ingredients and post it.

a simple one that I have done is take a pork shoulder, put salt, white pepper (allergic to black), garlic powder and onion powder all over it and put it in the crock pot.

Cook it on low for 12 hours (or until I get home), it will have a broth at the bottom of the pot and shred. Then I put low carb BBQ sauce, or put it over cauliflower rice and have it for a few days with different sauces.

Hubs favorite.. season a bunch of chix legs.. ( spray crock for easy cleaning) put all the legs meat side down til they are standing up firmly, not packed TOO tightly. NO WATER OR JUICE OF ANY KIND High.. 3 hrs. more or less. Just watch when your chicken falls off the bone for a precise time. Enjoy!

easwann, that reminded me to pull out a recipe I've been meaning to try:
Crockpot Roast Sticky Chicken
4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
(NOTE: I didn't have any white pepper so i used a total of 1 tsp. black pepper instead)

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight. When ready to cook, put the bird into the crockpot and do not add any liquid. As the cooking process goes on it will
produce it's own juices. Cook on low 8 - 10 hours and it will be falling off the bone tender.

Crockpot chicken legs!
Large package legs * two are missing in the image * one can of chicken broth and one package of liption onion soup mix!

Placed in crock pot at 9pm on low last night, woke up to wonderful smelling cooked chicken falling off the bone but still able to keep intact when I picked up the legs with tongs. Best breakfast ever and the broth is to die for! Yummo!! Easy and simple.
