Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
This is my go to recipe for pot roast & great as written. I've been making it forever! I have made some modifications over the years for my family. I prefer a rump roast. W/ the roast, I buy a pkg of fresh sliced mushrooms, a bag of baby carrots, a med onion & celery. I chop the onion, slice the celery, add the mushrooms, 1/2 the baby carrots, a bay leaf & salt & pepper and mix them in the bottom of the slow cooker. I mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can beef broth & 1/2 the pkt of the soup mix & pour over the veggies. I place the roast(fat side down)atop the veggies & rub in the remaining soup mix which gives the roast a nice color. When it's done, I serve it over cooked egg noodles. My store often puts rump roast on sale in a 2-pack. I freeze one & cook one. When freezing a roast, I like to have frozen veggies on hand to substitute for the fresh veggies. In that case, I use about fresh, frozen chopped onion -OR- pearl onions, fresh frozen chopped celery, a can/jar of sliced mushrooms(or I omit) & follow the steps above, topping with the defrosted roast. About an hour or 2 before it's done, I add frozen sliced carrots or frozen "parisienne" carrots. Quartered russet potatoes can be added to the vegetables if you prefer potatoes to noodles. I never sear the roast first because if I am making dinner in the crock pot it is because I am super busy. In that case, I don't want to use the stove or dirty a pan!

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Great and easy! Even my picky son gobbled it up! I took the advice of other reviewers and added a jar of Pace Picante sauce. (dumped the whole thing in by mistake-but it was fine!) I also subbed black beans for the kidney beans. While I will definitely make it again, I think I will tweak the recipe further. I thought the ratio of cornbread (too much) to meat was off - so I will use 2lbs of meat next time. I would like to try 1/2 ground pork and 1/2 ground beef. My husband thinks that corn would be a good addition to the meat-so I will throw in a cup of frozen kernels. I think a can of diced tomatoes (with chilis) or a chunkier salsa would be a good addition. I didn't find that the cheese was noticible in the cornbread, I'd like to add it to the meat mixture instead. I cooked it exactly 5 hours on low and it was perfect. I think it's a great recipe and very adaptable to whatever you have on hand and your own preferences!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Simply delicious! I love the ease of browning the ribs in the oven prior to putting them in the crock-pot. I sprayed them with a little olive oil spray to help them brown. I also seasoned with regular salt and celery salt plus pepper to give them a little zing. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used a combo of ketchup and barbeque sauce and skipped the chili sauce. I omitted the oregano and added about a tablespoon of minced garlic. I also poured the sauce over the ribs and browned them in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes prior to serving. They crisped up and caramelized beautifully! I will definitely make these again!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Loved! I too did not have celery, so I omitted it. I used the entire package of lentils, a 14 oz can of tomato sauce, and a big box of organic low salt chicken broth. I did not add salt per other reviews and found it did not need any due to the ham. Prior to serving I added some grated romano cheese and some cooked elbow macaroni and some of the water from the cooked pasta to thin the lentils a bit. Delicious!

Butter Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I used the recipe as is and tinted half the dough green to make spritz trees. The orange zest gives the cookies a great and "not typical spritz" flavor. I did not notice the taste of the cream cheese. The dough held up well and pressed easily and the cookies freeze beautifully. Definitely a keeper.
