A New Favorite Thing

My crockpot.

I don't really care much for cooking. Baking, yes! Cooking, no.

But, this I can do. This was so simple, it might not even qualify as cooking. I simply poured 1 bottle of BBQ sauce over 4 frozen, boneless chicken breasts and cooked it on low/med. for about 4 hours. Then I pulled the chicken apart, put it back in the sauce and cooked it another hour.

Voila! Pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches on fresh buns. Add carrot sticks, corn or another veggie on the side and dinner is done!

Now I am on a mission! I'm in search of more simple ways to make yummy dinners with this new favorite thing of mine.

So do you have any such "recipes" you use in your crockpot?

If so, do share........pretty please?

3lbs pork roast trimmed
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup

2tbls brown sugar
2tbls soy sauce
1tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp black peper/salt
arrange potatoes and onion in bottom of crock pot, place pork on top and spread garlic all over pork
In medium bowl, whisk water,
ketchup,vinegar,sugar,soy sauce,mustard,salt/pepper. Pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 6-8hrs or high for 3-4hrs.

This is awesome and the pork will just fall apart. Can serve w/rice too.

Thanks, lbmom! Sounds yummy! Makes me wish it would actually start to "feel" like Autumn around here. I just love cozy dinners on a Fall evening. I will have to give this one a try!

Here is a blog that could help - our favorite is beef (or pork) roast with potatoes and carrots. Toss into crock pot (still frozen is fine), cook on high for a few hours, turn down, eat when you are ready.

One we had this week was Italian beef - a beef roast with dry Italian dressing and green peppers. Cook until done, pull apart (if really lazy like me, toss into food processor a little at a time), toss back into pot. Eat on yummy rolls.
