Tri-tip is great in the crock. Make BBQ beef sandwiches, tacos, burritos with the leftovers. You can't go wrong.

Hubby wanted me to mention one of the things that I make that he loves; especially during football games and it is a must make for the Super Bowl

Italian Beef in the slow cooker

any type of beef roast
1 jar of banana peppers (zesty or mild whichever you prefer)
1 small canister of grated parmesan cheese

brown beef in pan and put in slow cooker. Dump jar of peppers with juice and canister of parmesan in slow cooker. Cook until very tender. Use two forks to cross shred the beef in the slow cooker and allow it to mix and soak up the juices. Serve on Steak or Sausage Rolls with fresh provolone and mustard and/or horseradish sauce. So delicious!

I use my crockpots like I would my oven. I even make my dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas in mine to free up oven space.

A good ol' fashion roast (my husband loves it when I make it because I don't serve red meat). Get a roast that will fit in your cp. Drop an onion, s & p, worstershire sauce. Eventually drop in some veggies - potatoes, carrots...

If you like mexican food you can make authentic chili verde - a mexican stew. That requires a pork roast. You can get a recipe on foodtv.com. A little time consuming but oh-so-worth it.

My favorite things to cook in a crock pot are so simple.

Beef roast, add roast, season with pepper and Adolphs Meat Tenderizer, whole baby carrots and potatoes.

Corned beef, add corn beef, carrots, potatoes and cabbage.

Whole chicken, I take a whole chicken and put Shake and Bake for chicken in a lerger plastic bag and coat it and cook it, wonderful!

My favorite thing to do with my slow cooker (I have 3 different sizes) is to cook a roast all day. Shread it. Let it cool and the bag it up in 1 lb bags and put it in the freezer.

Then when I want to make Bar-b-ques, tacos, etc I use the shreaded beef instead of hamburger. Always figured it was healthier. Don't know if it is though. haha But take the shreaded meat, add your taco seasoning and cook it as per the package. I make my own taco seasoning with individual ingredients.

Chop an onion, place it in the bottom of the pot. Add as many boneless pork chops as you like. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover the pork chops with beer (the amount will vary depending on how many chops you cook; if you're lucky, there will be some left over for a little taste -- unless it's 8 a.m. then just add all the beer!, unless you've been up all night already ... LOL) and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.

Life is short, eat dessert first!!

Love this recipe, and I have used other canned pie fillings with the same great results:

CHERRY CRISP

21 oz cherry pie filling
1/2 cup quick oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened

Spray the crock pot with Pam. Pour cherry pie filling into crock pot. Combine oats, flour, sugars, and cut in butter to make a crumb mixture. Sprinkle crumb mixture over top of cherry pie filling. Cook on low for 5 hours.
