Any recommendation on a good crock pot cook book, or does anyone have any recipes of their own to share?
I love all kinds of food but would really like to have a warm hearty stew for the first meal in it...

A friend gave me this recipe for pulled pork and we love it



Pulled Pork

Get a boneless 4 pound shoulder cut of pork from the supermarket. Don't do a thing to it. No seasoning, no spices, nothing!

Into a crock pot, slice an onion for the bottom of the pot, add the pork, put another sliced onion on the top, and then add about 12 ounces of apple juice or apple cider. Set it on low and leave it for 12 hours. (I use one yellow and one purple onion - you can use whatever you like)

After 12 hours, take out the onion and put it in a bowl for later. Remove the pork and discard the liquid. Take two forks and "pull" the pork apart. It will shred pretty easily. Once it's pulled, put it back in the crockpot. Take the onions, chop them up and toss them in as well, along with a bottle of BBQ sauce - any kind you like. Stir it all together and set it on low and leave it for 4 more hours.

I usually use my pot for meat, beans and baked potatoes or I'll use it for stuffing, au gratin potatoes or mac and cheese for big get togethers to keep warm.
Ribs turn out great too, it doesn't matter what cut of meat you put in the crock pot, if you cook it long enough, it will become very tender.

Once you get the hang of your crockpot you will wonder how you lived so long without it. I especially love pulled pork and beef stew I make. I use mine 3 or more times a week. I especially like preparing my evening meal around 10 each morning. This gives me an excuse to listen to Diane Rehm on the radio, gives me unrushed afternoons to cart my kids everywhere and I think it is probably cheaper to run a crock pot all day than the oven for a few hours.

There is no shortage of wonderful stew, soup and chicken recipes all over the internet. And I haven't fixed a roast in the regular oven in 15 or more years. Wouldn't even know how to at this point.

I use my crock pot constantly. There are plenty of recipes online for any thing you might want to cook. I do roasts, pulled pork, pork tenderloin, chicken thighs, stews and soup. I also love making homemade stock in my crock pot. Just google whatever you like and crockpot or slow cooker.

My favorite is Cranberry Orange Pork Tenderloin: Orange-Cranberry-Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe | MyRecipes.com

This is NOT really a recipe, but it is delicious! Full of calories though!

Put your pot roast in the crockpot( DO NOT ADD WATER)
Pour in single cans of Celery Soup, French Onion Soup, Mushroom Soup.
Distribute one packet of dry onion/mushroom soup over the roast.
Cover and cook for approx 8 hours .

This is wonderful to serve over rice, creamed potatoes, or egg noodles etc.

The meat fairly well falls apart after cooking this length of time so time can be adjusted to your desire if you want to slice.

Like I said this is NOT for the dieter, but very flavorful!

When doing dried beans ALWAYS soak beans overnight and then when cooking, add crock full of water.

This roast beef recipe sounds great!!! I bet a boneless pork roast would be good with the Dr. pepper too. I am going to have to try this.

I do something very similiar except I use 1 medium onion sliced, place pork on top, I take 1 packet of lipton onion soup mix and mix in 1 1/2 cups of water. I pour that on top. Cook low and slow 6 hours. after 6 hours I shred the meat and put back in the pot,add BBQ sauce (homemade)and cook 1 hour more.

just to be clear, the 4lb roast is a pork shoulder butt, not a fresh arm picnic,,,,both from the shoulder


very good recipe,, thanks for sharing,,, I'll use a chuck roast for pulled beef,,in much the same way -makes great sandwiches
