    Default Looking for a "go-to" crockpot recipe

    Hi. I have oodles of cookbooks and recipes but don't have time to to sift through everything. Anyone have a favorite "go-to" crockpot recipe that you use frequently that you can share?

    I found this one years ago...its easy and oh so good!

    You need a beef pot roast...chuck or blade.... and one pkg dry italian salad dressing mix.

    Put roast in crockpot
    Sprinkle dry mix over it
    Set for 8 hours cook time....yep..thats it!

    I shred the meat with a couple of forks and serve in a nice hoagie or kaiser roll and use the tasty drippings for au jus.

    No, none...it makes its own ...i found that strange. i made it once with a good roast....sirloin.....not good...didnt shred as nicely and not as much juice.

    ok then, hopefully will make this weekend. I'm guessing if my store doesn't carry chuck roast, a bottom round might work.

    You can take a beef roast, and put it in the crock pot. Peel and slice potatoes in 1/2 inch wedges. Put on top of the meat. Add a bag of baby carrots. The amount of carrots and potatoes should be almost equal. Peel and cut an onion. Add salt and pepper. Cook until the meat is done (4-8 hours depending on what setting and how much meat)

    My family has two go to crockpot recipes.
    1. 3-4 pounds of pork roast, i usually use shoulder but have used the lean loin roasts also. one bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and 8 hours on low. shred with a fork and it's excellent for pulled pork sandwiches. often we will add more BBQ sauce after shredding to make it even more saucy.
    2. 2lb bag of small red beans or black beans, half cup chopped onion, one chopped bell pepper, one can crushed tomatoes, one can tomato paste, one pound chopped taco meat. add enough water to fill the crock-pot and about 8 hours on low. then season to taste at end.

    We are a family of 7 so i have a large crock-pot. both of these freeze well if you have leftovers
