We are in need of recipes for our small crock pot. I'm looking for good web sites to visit. Can anyone help. Thanks
I suggest you go to either google or ask.com & type in crock pot recipes....I'm sure you'll be directed to a huge amount of sites. recipegoldmine.com is one & franks recipes (a site in Canada) is also a great one.
Here is a site that was on an old thread. there is also a good thread on the board, but I haven't been able to pull it up yet.
I have a 1.5 and it cooks fairly hot, even on low. I can't leave it all day, better for 4-6 hours.
Crock Pot Italian Chicken
2 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into nuggets1 envelope (.7 oz.) Good Seasons Italian dressing mix1/2 c. water1 pkg. (8 oz.) low fat cream cheese, softened1 can (10.5 oz.) fat free cream of chicken soup1 can (8 oz.) sliced mushroomsINSTRUCTIONS: Place chicken in bottom of crockpot. Combine salad dressing mix and water; pour over chicken and cook on low for 3 hours.In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and cream of chicken. Mix til well blended. Then gently stir in mushrooms. Pour over chicken and cook for 1 hour. Serve over rice; noodles or mashed potatoes.
Sweet and Sour Pork1 pound pork tenderloin or boneless pork chops (I used 3 loin chops)1 (16 oz) can pineapple tidbits (I used an 8oz can)1/3 cup ketchup1/3 cup water2 Tablespoons soy sauce2 Tablespoons brown sugar2 Tablespoons cornstarch2 Tablespoons vinegar3/4 teaspoon salt (I didn't use that much at all)1/4 teaspoon pepper1/4 teaspoon ginger2 Tablespoons oil1 medium onion, chopped1 green pepper, cut into 1/2 piecesCut chops into bite sized pieces and sautee in canola oil.Mix the remaining ingredients (except onion and green pepper) together and pour over pork in 1.5 qt crock pot. Cook on high for 3 hours. Add onions and green pepper the last 2 hours. If you add them at the beginning, they literally cook down to nothing.
Since I only cook for myself I use my 1.5 quart crock-pot more often than my large one now. I use the same recipes, but I just cut the recipe in half. Works out well for me.
Well, there are two of us, but dh won't eat a lot of things I do, so I use mine a lot, too....Like instead of using 4 chicken breasts, in a recipe, I may just use one large or 2 small and adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly.
That sounds good - great idea. I love swiss steak but can't find the proper cut in the supermarket. What should I be looking for and should I have the butcher put it through a tenderizer? Sometimes the cube steaks look "fatty" and cook up tough. Also, how do you make swiss steak properly so that it's tasty and extremely soft?
