Melt butter and brown chops on both sides.
Arrange chops in bottom of 9x13 casserole.
Slice the mushrooms and scatter over the chops.

Add Parmesan cheese to sauce.
Pour sauce over chops.
Sprinkle with thyme.
Cover and bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour.

These are great in the crock pot too.


Twokitty 07-08-2002 06:05 PM

The simplest, placing a whole chicken in the pot with an onion, garlic or whatever seasoning you like inside, a little paprika on top and cook all night. So good, and falls apart. Had a kid who hated everything I cooked in the pot so he hid my big one unless I promised not to use it. Found it years later in the attic.

Cindy's soy sauce ribs
2 lbs country pork ribs (cut into 3-4 pcs each)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 garlic cloves crushed
1/4 inch piece fresh ginger chopped
1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Place ribs in crockpot, dump everything else in.
3-4 hours on high, 5-6 on low and the meat just fall off the bone. For the rest of my family I serve this with rice and veggies I can eat too.
Also yummy for chicken as well.

Hint: Buy a small pc. of fresh ginger in the oriental produce section. Keep it wrapped well in the freezer and peel the brown skin off a little at a time, as you use it. I also use the peeler to peel off little pieces and use it just like that

Pepperocini Beef

Put a 4-5 lb roast (i buy whatever is on sale) in the crock pot and dump a good size jar of pepperocinis w/ juice on top. Cook on high for 1/2 hour then reduce to low and cook for 8-10 hours.

This is spicy but soooo good! I usually don't eat the peppers, the beef is excellent served on those microwaved cheddar or parmesan cheese chips things.

My favorite so far is:

Crockpot Roast Beef

1 chuck roast
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 can tomato paste
1 or 2 onions, sliced as large as you like
3 or 4 cloves of garlic (used jarred kind, minced)
2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
2 tbsps red wine (optional)
2 tbsps roast seasoning, any kind no sugar (didn't use)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsps butter

If you have time, brown roast in a pan prior to putting in crockpot. (I did not do). Season meat with seasonings. Layer onions and garlic. Mix tomato sauce and paste. Pour over the top. Add butter. Put on the lid cook all day on low. Meat will fall off the bone. Take drippings and reduce down till it makes a nice gravy, serve over top. (I did not reduce down).

This is great, even better for leftovers. I got it off a receipe site I downloaded.

Round steak - cut into bite sized pieces & browned (or ground beef, browned)
1/2 stick butter
gr. pepper
2 Tbs cummin
1/4 cup white vinegar
dried red chili peppers (to taste- I like my chilie very spicey)
black soy beans
rotel tomato/chilis (as much as your carb count for the day allows)
tomato sauce or
diced tomato (as much as your carb count for the day allows)

Put all the above in a crockpot and simmer for several hours. The longer the simmer the better in my opinion. The original recipe also added sliced black olives. Add water as necessary.

Cooking conversion chart for crock pots
I'm looking to get dinners prepared early in the day. I found this chart that converts regular oven times to crockpot equivalents.

Oven cooking time // Crock pot cooking time

15 - 30 minutes //1.5 -2 hours with high heat or 4 - 6 hours with low heat
30 - 45 minutes// 2 - 3 hours with high heat or 5 - 8 hours with low heat
45 minutes to 2 hours // 4 - 5 hours with high heat or 8 - 15 hours on low heat

6 frozen skinless/bonless chicken breasts (YES - frozen!)
1 jar of your favorite salsa
1 green pepper, sliced in rings
Sliced onion if desired

Layer ingredients beginning with a little salsa in the crockpot.
Cook on low for 8 hours.

This would be good served with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sourcream. It would also be a good filling for lowcarb tortillas.

Rotisserie/"Deli" Chicken

1 whole chicken
tin foil (any "weight")
spray cooking oil
seasoning of your choice (see my note*)

Spray the bottom of the crockpot with olive oil non-stick cooking spray. Next, take pieces of tin foil (aluminum foil) and ball them up, placing them in the bottom of the crockpot. The chicken is going to "sit" on the foil balls. Cover the bottom of the crockpot with tinfoil balls. Spray the chicken with the olive oil spray and season with Lawry's seasoned salt.
Bake on high for 4 hours.

**Notes: The tin foil and the time/temp are "non-negotiables"

I have used butter flavored cooking spray as well as different seasonings and it has tasted great. I have used lemon pepper seasoning and McCormick's brand "Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning."

This does look like one of the whole rotisserie chicken's that the grocery store sells.

One small ham. One can of beer. 1 packet Splenda. Throw it all in. Cook on low overnight.
Nibble on it for days and wait for Whooshie. :-)

Happy Lowcarbing,

Banshee5 12-09-2002 07:29 AM

I just used my 2 1/2 qt crock pot. I already LOVE it:) :) :) :)
several large sprigs of fresh rosemary
2 stalks chopped celery
1 carrot, sliced on bias
1/2 large yellow onion, sliced into rings
1 cup beef broth
several large cloves of garlic, roasted til golden
About 2 lb leg of lamb, bone in, sirloin cut

Place all veggies EXCEPT GARLIC in bottom of crockpot. Add the beef broth. Smear the roasted garlic cloves all over the lamb; poke a few slits in the meat too; helps the garlic flavor get in. Smear the rosemary sprigs all over the lamb and leave them in. Set lamb onto of the veggies. Cook on low, about 8 hrs....til bone falls away and you can shread meat with a fork. The broth it makes is fabulous!!
You can add other seasoning( if you want) onto the lamb, heat it and then serve.

Could someone tell me what temp a crock pot cooks at?
I have an electric roaster (Nesco) and I'd like to try some of these recipes but I don't know what temp to use.
Thanks :)
~jexie (D-day - 13)

JazzyV 12-14-2002 04:22 AM

jexie, I use a Nesco 6 qt roaster all the time. Luckily my Rival crockpot recipe book told me that low in the crockpot is about 200f and high is equivalent to about 300f, so that's what I use in the Nesco.

Beef Stroganoff

This recipe calls for "stew beef", but don't get the kind you would use for a beef stew. It gets all shredded and falls apart. You need to get a more "steaky" type of beef and slice it into small thin "planks".

1 lb. cubed stewing beef
3 handfuls of chopped onions
3 handfuls of sliced mushrooms
1 14.5 oz. can beef broth or 1.5 cubes of beef boullion dissolved in 14.5 oz. boiling water.
1 8-oz. tub of Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread

Place first 4 ingrediants in a slow cooker.

Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.

Stir in Cream Cheese Spread just before serving
