I'm guessing it is about 16 y.old at least....no way new...it has a fryer thing that the crock sits in....so you can deep fat fry or use as a crock. Haven't used the darn thing in a L O N G time....and the directions...well what box could that be in???? [Roll Eyes] Guess I should of set it pretty high to bubble then turned it back down...I may be eating at 2am or tomorrow for breakfast. [Big Grin]

yay! thank you guys! i love my crock pot too! saves time and keeps my kitchen cooler in the summer! [perplexed] this is one of our favorites--

~a big cut of beef boneless- i've found that it really doesn't matter the type of cut cause it comes out tender anyhow

~put in crock pot and then on top add 1 large onion (or more if you like) cut up

~dump 1 large can of campbels mushroom soup (or 2 small ones)

~that's it. the fat from the meat makes gravy with the soup and the beef comes out so tender it shreds. we serve over rice or noodles- whatever is in the house at the time

and i actually like cooking my spaghetti in the crock pot too. it simmers longer and comes out better. i use

1 large can of whole tomatoes cut up so they are still chunky
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 regular can of whole tomatoes cut up same way
1 small can of tomato paste
some oregano
little sugar
lots of fresh garlic
and about a cup of red wine

i let it simmer most of the day and about an hour or two before dinner i add a large cut up green pepper, 1 large onion, and some fresh mushrooms- i like 'em kinda crispy not too mushy. but that's just my taste

i like chili in the crock too but there was already a recipe for that right? i just kinda skimmed them. i'll go back and see if my husband will like any. he's pickier than the kids! [Roll Eyes] my mom used to make this soup she called "yaka-mein", i don't know if it was made up or what. [dunno]

add to crock 2 cans of cambells beef consomme, then 2 cans of water. beef bullion cubes- for each cube add 1 soup can of water. add enough to make as much soup as you want. then add bite size chunks of beef. low for a few hours. we always ate it with spaghetti noodles in our bowls.

anyhow that's all i can think of off the top of my head. i'll think of more later i'm sure.... LOL

Boy!!! are there ever some great recipes for the Crock Pot, Soon I'll be retiring to part time, and I'm going to try some of these out, they all look so delicious, I haven't been around much, have been very busy, but I do stop in ever so often.

I was wondering if I could use some of these recipes on another forum, and put your name, and where it came from next to the recipes. I have a website, that's still under construction, and want to add a cook book there, and add some of your recipes there also. I already have a link to the 'Gardener's Forun' on there.

Glad to hear you have a link to us!

Thanks for all of the delicious sounding recipes for the crock pot. The "crock" and I are old friends as I did 90% of the cooking when my sons were growing up and my ex-wife was off going to school or working or whatever. Someone asked about the temperatures of the crock pot: they differ from brand to brand and type to type. I have three crocks and they all cook at different temps. "Low" on a newer one is like "High" on my old Rival. Personally, I prefer the ones which cook slower. If I want something cooked faster (such as meat), I just brown it first.
Now that summer is here, the crock is great for using up lots of garden veggies that otherwise might go to waste. If the counter is getting full of onions, peppers, summer squash, zuchini, tomatoes, sweetcorn, potatoes, etc., just chop/slice and throw into the crock with some of your favorite seasonings and a little water (or wine, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, chicken broth, beer?) and forget it for 6-8 hours. You may need to boil the taters for a while to soften them or slice very thin so they get done. Same with the carrots. Or shred them. I can't grow them in my garden but I like to add mushrooms. Be brave and experiment. You will not be disappointed. [Smile]

Ahhh.....the old Rival!
Mine is over 25 years old! I got it to replace the one I dropped and broke when my daughter was 3 years old. She's 29 now!

I sadly put my old crock pot to rest and bought a new one a few days ago.....the old one had a non stick interior and it was all peeling off [Frown] ....so the new one is a stoneware insert that you can remove, and it's really nice--6 qt, stainless steel and black......I used it tonight for my sisters BD party for meatballs.....buy a bag of meatballs, or make some and then mix equal parts of grape jelly and ketchup together.....OMG, I HATE grape jelly and thought it would be disgusting, but this is the second year I've made them now and everyone loves them including me [grin] ....very easy and cheap to make, and perfect for a party......The jelly and ketchup will be really clumpy at first but then the heat gets rid of the lumps......really, try it and see if I'm lying about how good it is!

OMG, we had this last night and it was soooooo good!

Stroganoff
2lbs cubed pork (I used a couple huge chicken breasts cubed)
1 sm onion
2T flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1 1/2 t paprika
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup sour cream

Place meat and onion in crockpot. Stir in flour. Add remaining minus sourcream. Stir well. Cover and cook. (We cooked on low for about 10 hours because that's about the amount of time from leaving for work and getting home for me.) Add sour cream 30 minutes before serving. Serve over noodles.

We put it on minute rice. YUMMY!!! [grin] [grin]

Hi all ~

The first Crock Pot recipe I ever received was from Nana's11, a marvelous cook. Here it is:

LOW FAT ORANGE CLAZED CHICKEN BREASTS

6 ounces thawed orange juice, foozen concentrate
3 chicken breats, split
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 dash garlic powder (optional)
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Combine thawed orange juice concentrate (not already made OJ) in bowl along with marjoram, garlic powder and nutmeg. Split the chicken breasts to make 6 serving sizes. Dip each piece into the orange juice mixture to coat completely. Place in crock pot. Pour the remaining orange juice mixture over the chicken.

Cover and cook on low for 7 - 9 hours or cook on high for 4 hours if you wish.

When chicken is done, remove to serving platter. Pour the sauce that remains in crock pot into a saucepan. Mix the cornstarch and water and stir into the juice in pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly.

Serve the sauce over the chicken.

Serving ideas: Serve with brown or white rice. [thumb]

1 cup frozen corn
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups water
