It's the reason I bought my crockpot. I should have added that it's even better when served with a dollop of sour cream.

All-Day-Long Crockpot Beef

Recipe By: Carb Health Recipes at http://www.e-clipse.com
Serving Size: 6
Cuisine:
Main Ingredient:
Categories: Main Dish, Beef

-= Ingredients =-
1 1/2 pounds beef roast
= (use any cut of beef roast desired)
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves ; minced
1/2 package onion soup mix
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon steak sauce
3 carrots ; sliced
2 celery stalks ; diced
1 green bell pepper ; chopped
1 yellow onion
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup tomato juice

-= Instructions =-
Cut beef roast into serving-sized portions. Use more beef if you need more than 6 servings. Brown beef in a bit of vegetable oil, although you can skip this step if rushed for time.

Slice onion and separate into rings. Dice the peeled carrots, dice the celery and slice the peppers into thin strips or circles. Place these into bottom of crockpot. Sprinkle the beef pieces with fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic and the onion soup mix. Place on top of the vegetables.

Mix the steak sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl with about 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup tomato juice. Pour this over the meat.

Turn the crockpot to high for 30 minutes, or, if you're in a hurry, skip this step. Turn to low, cover and cook for 7 to 9 hours.

This recipe yields 6 servings.

Calories: 277
Protein: 19g
Fat: 18g
Sodium: 477mg
Carbs: 9g
Fiber: 2g
ECC = 7g

Comments: Keep the crockpot covered as much as possible throughout cooking time. A crockpot can be used to cook this type of meal for a varied amount of time, depending on your schedule. It is not important that you take the meat and vegetables out at a specific amount of time. One or two hours either way usually makes no difference.

When ready to serve, dip meat and vegetables out of pot with a slotted spoon. Use the liquid as is or turn crockpot to high and thicken liquid with a little ThickenThin Not/Starch thickener.

Pseudo Saltimbocca Recipe

serves 6

Ingredients:
cooking spray
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into thirds lengthwise
12 thin slices provolone cheese
1/2 pound sliced prosciutto or good-quality boiled ham
1/4 cup fresh sage leaves
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 grated Parmesan cheese


Directions:

Coat the slow cooker crock with cooking spray; set aside.

Slice the cheese in half crosswise, making two stacks. Then cut each stack in half again, making rectangular pieces.

Assemble the roll-ups: On a cutting board or clean counter, lay one prosciutto or ham slice with a short end closest to you. Lay two pieces of cheese atop the prosciutto slice, lined up with the bottom edge of the prosciutto slice. Lay one strip of chicken across the cheese.

Roll up, starting at bottom edge (chicken may stick out the ends of the roll-up). Place roll-up in the slow cooker crock and repeat until all prosciutto, cheese, and chicken is used, making layers of roll-ups in the crock as you go. Tuck the sage leaves around and between the roll-ups. Sprinkle roll-ups with pepper.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours. When done cooking, use tongs to remove the roll-ups to a platter. Turn slow cooker to high. Stir cream and Parmesan into the juices in the crock; cover and cook about 10 minutes.

Return roll-ups to the slow cooker crock to coat them with the sauce, and serve.

Thanks, Yummy's Girl, those look like keepers.

Is anybody but me enjoying the crockpot liners that make cleanup a breeze??? I find them a bit expensive. But I hate dishwashing!!!!

I also do the Cola Chicken, my variation, in the crockpot, with breast meat, and shred the "BBQ" before serving. I think everybody has to find their own preference for Cola Chicken, the thickness and sweetness should be to your own taste. The basis for it is Splenda sweetened cola and LC Catsup. I add spices--cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and a bit of "heat" with hot sauce. Vinegar would be an option, depending on your preference. This is one of those recipes that surprises ya, it just doesn't taste like you think it's gonna taste! It's a great one for the tweakers out there!

Yummy's Girl, Diet Rite has a great splenda cola, as does Pepsi. . .if you haven't looked there yet. . .Diet Rite even better for me as it doesn't have caffeine, and I "monitor" my caffeine intake making sure I don't over or underload!!!! Neither is a pretty picture on me!!!! It's heck walking that balance bar!

Hello everyone, I just got my first crockpot

Hi, I just got back on low carbing after taking a 2yr vacation......UGH! Anyhow, I am really really hungry for the BBQ chicken I had made with cola, I got it off the recipes in this site. Want to make it again, and have gotten a crockpot since then.........so, does anyone have that recipe for BBQ chicken/ribs in the crockpot that uses the cola, and I think sugar free catsup.

You cannot believe how much I craved this while I wasn't low carbing!

Thank You,
K

Stuffed Green Peppers in Crock Pot

Buy tall green peppers (usually I can get 6 in my crock pot but I have a rather large one). Cut off the tops and deseed the inner part of the green pepper.

In a bowl combine 1 pound of ground beef (do not brown - mix raw beef), cup of rice, mozzeralla cheese, little parmasean, salt/pepper. Stuff the green peppers about 3/4 to the top - leave room for expansion while the peppers cook. Pour a little tomato sauce over the peppers and put the tops back on them. Cover and cook on low ALL day or high about 4 hours. The grease from the beef will coat the peppers all the way through and make them yummy!

Great idea. I'm going to give it a shot this week cause I'm always looking for crock pot ideas. I may add in some ricotta cheese instead of the rice though. Thanks for the recipe.

Did you have to put any water in the crock pot for this recipe?

when I make stuffed peppers I use V8 juice for the tomatoe part, I like to mix a little in withe meat & rice & then pour some over the top while cooking, how much depends on how juocy you want your meat mixture to be when you eat it.

I put just a little of beef broth in the bottom - not much. They are good and just fall apart.

Crockpot Kalua Pork

1 bone-in or boneless pork shoulder or butt or fresh ham - whatever will fit in your crockpot
2 tablespoons Hawaiian red sea salt (yes, it's important, and you can get it at Trader Joe's, or online)
2 tablespoons hickory-type liquid smoke

Poke the pork all over with a carving fork. Rub first side with salt, then liquid smoke; turn over and rub the other side.

Place in crockpot and cook on Low at LEAST 12 hours or til the pork shreds easily. Reserve some of the liquid that will have accumulated - pour off the rest - shred the pork and add back to the crockpot with enough liquid to moisten.

This is moist and tender and really tasty and VERY easy!

Don't use too lean a cut of pork - the fat cooking into the meat over the long crockpot time is what makes it tender and tasty.

I ate mine with some Chipotle Tabasco sauce - LC BBQ sauce would be good too.

Oh, man does that sound good! Easy too, except for getting that special salt. . .Trader Joes not available here! I'll be on the lookout for it though.

I had a superbowl party with 3 crocks and a rice cooker! (3 men and a baby?) LC Texas chili, LC Chicken and Sausage Gumbo made with carbalose roux, high carb baked beans for DH, and of course rice in the cooker. I had people comparing me to Martha Stewart for the cuisine--yeah, all comfort foods and super easy! I cooked the chili and gumbo the day before so the flavors would intensify, and it worked absolutely beautifully!

I'll have to recap my efforts for the gumbo, and post here. I did the roux in the microwave, though, and other than needing to be done in a pyrex glass container (it did sort of "marry" my plastic heavy duty microwave bowl I think it is a winner! DH said the best he'd had, and we live on the Gulf coast, known for gumbo.

Oh I had intended to add shrimp at the last minute--so it wouldn't overcook, but it turns out 2 guests had shellfish allergies, so I just added more sausage!

Here's the gumbo method I used.

LC Chicken and Smoked Sausage Gumbo adapted to microwave and slow clooker

Recipe adapted for low carb from a recipe by Emeril Lagasse

1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Carbalose

Combine in glass microwave safe bowl (pyrex measuring cup) and microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, checking and stirring after 3 minutes. You are looking for a “caramel” brown color. This mixture browns really quickly once it reaches the right temp, so WATCH it!

Add to slow cooker the roux and the following:

2 cups chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped bell peppers

4 pounds chicken thighs, skin removed
1 tablespoon Essence or Creole seasoning, recipe follows I used about 3 T of my own version which had no cayenne)

Brown (blacken?) chicken on stove top in large skillet, doing in several batches.

Add to slow cooker, along with:

1 pound smoked sausage, such as andouille or kielbasa, cut crosswise 1/2-inch thick pieces (Emeril browns this also but I didn’t)


3 bay leaves (I used bay leaf seasoning)
9 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth ( used a carton of broth—large)
1/2 cup chopped green onions (I left out)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves (I left out)
1 tablespoon file powder (I didn’t use)

Hot sauce (Didn’t need for my taste)

I cooked this in the slow cooker on high about 4 hours.

We had a bowl—3 of us, then I refrigerated overnight. The next day I added another pound of sausage and a package of frozen okra, tomatoes, and onions (I was having a party and wanted a large amount—this is a large slow cooker I was using.)


Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Yield: 2/3 cup

Yield: 7 cups++++

I tried something new for dinner tonight.
I took 3 lbs of chicken breasts and cut them into one inch wide strips and put them in the crock.
I then combined the can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup with a 14.5 oz can of turkey stock and 1 teaspoon of the dry salad dressing mix and poured it over the chicken.
With the setting on low heat I let it cook for 8 hours and then served it on a bed of buttered spaghetti squash.
About an hour before it was done I decided to cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.

Chinese CrockPot Chicken
servers 8 @ approx 3 carbs each

3.5 lbs chicken (I used 2 lbs thighs and 1.5 lbs breasts)
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup Jok n Al Blackberry & Apple Fruit Spread
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 T. sherry (I used medium Dry Sack)
2 T. sf Blackbery syrup
1 t. fresh grated ginger root
3 T. not/Sugar

Mix all ingredients except the chicken in a large mixing bowl.
Add the chicken pieces and coat well then cover and let marinate in fridge.
After marinating, place everything, including the marinade, in crockpot and cover with a tight fitting lid.
Cook 5 to 6 hours on low.

Wonderful, Easy, Baby Back Ribs

Cut rack in half (about 6-8" per half) Rub with Liquid Smoke, McCormick Pork Seasoning and McCormick all purpose seasoning. Place one on top of the other and Cook for 6, 8 or 10 hours depending on what time you want to eat(I've tried them all and result is just about the same ... wonderful!!) Sometimes I add a little LC Barbeque Sauce, too. It literally falls off the bone and is absolutely delicious.

I need some help with good recipes for biscuits and bread. I have attempted a few on this forum and the results have been less than stellar. Maybe just the nature of the beast. Any suggestions on proven recipes will be very much appreciated!

Here's the recipe, Karber I had to look it up again cuz I'm making it tonight for my ribs!
it's from Cheri.

Cola Chicken... omg is this ever good!!!


Ingredients
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup catsup (There is a recipe for lowcarb catsup on the newbie site under must have recipes if you would like to try that)
12 oz. can diet cola (best if you use diet rite!)

Put chicken in nonstick skillet. I usually brown my chicken a little first before pouring the catsup and diet cola over the top. . Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover, turn up the heat and continue cooking until the sauce becomes thick and adheres to the chicken. It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce.

What is the carb count on the Cola Chicken? Are you using chicken breast?
