Crockpot Recipes

Our little co-op met and exchanged crock pot recipes this week.  Here is a sampling of what we collected:

Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast
2 tablespoons butter
3 pounds boneless pork roast
1 envelope golden onion dried soup mix
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
2 teaspoons dijon-style mustard
Melt butter in  12 inch skillet until sizzling; add pork roast.  Cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until browned (4 to 6 minutes).

Place in slow cooker. Sprinkle with dried soup mix.  Spread cranberry sauce over dried soup.  Cover; cook on low heat setting for 4 to 6 hours or until roast is fork tender.

To serve, cut meat into slices.  Stir mustard into sauce; serve over meat.

Slow cooked souperior meat loaf
1 envelope lipton recipe secrets onion soup mix
2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup ketchup

Audrey's tip:  Add three cut up carrots, four or five cut up potatoes and an onion cut into wedges at the beginning of cooking.  Pour a cup of beef broth over the whole thing, and it's a whole dinner!  I call it poor man's pot roast.

In large bowl, combine all ingredients; shape into loaf.  Arrange in slow cooker and cook covered on low 6-8 hours or until done.  Let stand 10 minutes before serving.  HELPFUL HINT...To ease removal of meat loaf, fold two 24 inch long pieces of aluminum foil in half lengthwise, then in half again.  Arrange aluminum foil criss-cross in bottom of slow cooker, letting ends hang outside.  To remove meat loaf, carefully lift aluminum foil.

Submitted by my friend Portia:
Apple Butter
3 quarts unsweetened applesauce
3 cups sugar (or sweeten to taste)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon or less ground cloves

Combine all ingredients in large slow cooker.  Cover and cook on high 8 to 10 hours.  Remove lid during last 4 hours.  Stir occasionally.

Just put 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the crock pot with 2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies...cook on low for 8 hours and then remove chicken and shred.  Great for soft or crunchy tacos!

There were several others, but I'm tired of typing.  Anyway, have a great week.  I think next week we are going to talk about and try to put together a home management notebook.  Some of us have already started one and others in the group are interested in starting one.
