    My father in-law makes some bomb baked potato soup in the crock pot. Will have to get his recipe though.

    Tasty Easy Meal:

    Buffalo Chicken Sammy's...

    Take a few Boneless skinless breasts and toss in the crock on low.
    Pour in a bottle of Franks Red Hot Win Sauce
    Add a Pack of Ranch dressing Powder mix

    Cook for several hours - after a while you can take to forks and pull the chicken apart with no effort - gets stringy like pulled pork
    Do that - stir, leave on low or just cut off the pot and let it simmer if eating soon


    In the mean time take and make some blue Cheese Cole Slaw - put the slaw and Chicken on a Kings Hawaiian roll and make about 8 more for when you finish the 1st :laugh: Good and easy

    One I do is Salsa Chicken

    Take 3-4 boneless chicken breasts, one jar of your choice of chunky salsa. I usually use Pace.
    Put crockpot on low, cook while at work.
    Shred chicken with forks like a pulled pork.
    Serve with tortillas and you can make tacos or burritos

    Boston butt or other 'lesser grade' cut of roast. Whatever is on sale. Several potatoes of choice, peeled and quartered (or smaller if they are big un's) One sweet onion, baseball size, sliced in rings then cut in half, several carrots, peeled, cut to 3" or so lengths.

    I like to coat the roast with black pepper and sea salt (to your taste). Put ingredients in pot. Add some water, apple juice and a shot or two of wostershire (which will all run to the bottom) then cover the top with a can of cream of mushroom soup, undiluted. Makes a hardy pot roast dinner. Serve with a side of mayonaise salad (lettuce, tomato, a bit of onion and mayo mixed) and some horseradish cream for those who indulge.

    I also like to cook apples. Granny Smiths, peeled, cored, sliced. Layer in crockpot, cover layers with softened butter and brown sugar.

    Budget cuts of pork work nice too. Season the meat with your rub of choice, add a bottle of your fav BBQ sauce (homemade is fine, or Sweet Baby Ray's Chipolte) and about 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar. When done, easily use two forks to shred the meat to use for sammies, tacos, burger topping, etc.

    You can sometimes save the juices/sauce and toss in another pork roast to prep up to shred and freeze.

    Literally just started some beef short ribs in the crock, Asian style.

    Put some:
    Soy sauce
    Brown sugar
    Rice wine vinager
    Garlic
    Ginger
    5 spice
    Crushed red pepper

    In the crock on low for like 8 hours. It's the only way I'll make short ribs. They're so freaking good!

    Need to try a batch of @bvbull200 rub on some meat in the crock - cook for 12 hours - bet it'd be awesome - maybe pour in a beer of choice for good measure :)

    shoot - I'm doing this!

    I bought what I thought was a crock pot at the local 2nd hand store when I moved into my current place, all stoked to learn to cook something delicious and moderately healthy at home for a change. Learned after 8 hours of trying to slow cook a roast that what I had actually bought was a large rice cooker, not a crock pot. Fail.

    It actually worked pretty well, just took longer lol.
