Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone here is a slow cooker fan like me. They are GREAT for cooking any type of meat and require very little effort. I've been messing around with them for a while now on weekends and I would have to say that my favorites are pork butt, whole chicken, and pork ribs.

Post some recipes please!

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

Bought a high end pressure cooker a few years ago, never used it as I wasn't eating meat. Now that I am, works great. Slow cooker might be next purchase as I hear they work great.

It is really cool to toss some lamb chops into Pressure cooker, brown for a few minutes, add some water, veggies, hit the high heat for about 20 minutes, done.

Plan to cook tongue via pressure cooker.

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

slow cookers are great especially for this busy gymnastics mom of 3. Problem is remembering or having time to pop something in there before we leave for the day.

I've even tried spaghetti in the crockpot. The noodles turn out a little different texture - not al dente - but the kids loved it.

Chili Verde is pretty easy - one large can green chilies, chopped, one large can tomatoes, onion, garlic and cubed beef, pork or chicken.

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

subscribing to this thread with the hope that some good recipes get posted. i bought a slow cooker a few months back and made a couple roasts, but lost interest when i couldn't find any paleo recipes and I'm not good at making up my own...

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

I've been cooking buffalo in the crockpot, we have a farm nearby. I buy buffalo chuck steak and make a pot roast from it. You can use beef chuck, but it won't be as lean.

Throw in crockpot:

1 large onion, sliced
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
2 large carrots, cut in 1 inch chunks
You can add: 1 small butternut or acorn squash, peeled and cut in chunks
a small handful of prunes
salt and pepper
pinch of cinnamon
water to come halfway up the pot

Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours or on high for about 8.

Susie

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

I love my slow cooker (Crock Pot model). I have tried a few of the recipes from http://www.paleofood.com/ (w/f safe) and each turned out great (really easy too). In general it's tough to go wrong throwing some meat, veggies, herbs/spics, and water or stock in overnight.

Re: Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

Here's a slow cooker recipe book...W/F/S

And feast your eyes on my Caveman Stew below. I bought my slow cooker at Costco the day Chuck Lidell got his butt kicked. My family and buddies killed this stew before Chuck hit the canvas!
