Drip Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Browned in a fry-pan and then dropped in the crockpot as several others have suggested. I used a 3# roast and cooked on Low for 10 hours. I'm not a big fan of crockpot beef - seems like it's always dried out and stringy. This was definitely an exception. Excellent flavor and still very moist. I loved the spices in the coffee filter, so easy! Next time I'll probably decrease the amount of pepper as 2 T was a little intense for the smaller roast. This one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Tammy!

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Great flavor but it seemed like way too much butter/oil for 1/2# asparagus. I didn't have coarse salt, so used 1/4 t of regular. Will definitely use this recipe again, only increase asparagus to atleast 1#. Think this would be great way to prepare broccoli too. Thanks for sharing this very tasty recipe, Kim.

Pork Chops with Dijon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
I followed suggestion of a previous reviewer and pan-fried chops seasoned with bouillon and seasonings. Then removed the chops and made the sauce in the same pan. Didn't have yogurt so substituted sour cream - rich and yummy! Served the sauce on the side and also used it for dipping cooked veggies (broccoli and asparagus works great!). We loved this one. A really easy way to dress up ordinary pork chops and quite a treat for low-carb diets!

Spinach-Gorganzola Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This sounded so yummy, BUT my husband and 2 guests didn't love it. Made according to directions except cut back to 1/2 lb. bacon (still too much). Overload on calories and time-consuming, I don't think I'll make this recipe again. With some overhaul, I think the recipe has potential - using the same basic ingredients, cutting down on the measurements and lightening up on the dressing (2/3 C of olive oil is excessive).

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
I used cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup and added sliced onions in the bottom of the crock before placing the meat. Added a handful of baby carrots about 1 hour before serving (perfectly done, not mushy!). Served with brown rice to make use of the gravy. I wanted to love this one, but even with the tomato soup, it was ordinary. Seems that slow cooker beef always has that same stringy texture. Might try this again with a pork roast.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
One word - YUMMY! Even my picky husband gave this one rave reviews. I followed the recipe as written except I used a pork shoulder roast (bone-in) and cooked about 8 hrs. on LOW. Very tender & tasty. Added cornstarch at the end to thicken this wonderful sauce. Think it would be great over brown rice. This one is a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing!

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I made this pretty much to the recipe directions except reduced cranberries to 1 C (looked like more than enough to me) and used 8oz. can of crushed pineapple and 8oz. can of chunk pineapple because that's what I had on hand. About 2 hours before serving, I mixed in cornstarch/water to thicken the sauce a bit, thinking it might make a nice glaze and gravy for rice. This worked well. I really wanted to love this recipe but it was just so-so, not too inspiring. I won't be making this one again, but if I did, I'd make sure to add more salt.

Rocky Mountain Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2005
I was looking for something to do with sirloin tips when I found this recipe. I made the recipe as written, reducing by half for our small family. I had some leftover peas that I added at the last minute. Sounded kind of odd to add peas, but it really was a nice addition. Reminded me of Dinty Moore stew - but fresh! Somehow I didn't have as much gravy as I thought it should. Maybe next time I will add a bit more water... This one was a hit, even with my husband who declared he does not like stew! Will definitely make this one again.

Fajita Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2004
We liked this one. Something fast, easy and different. I cooked the chicken first, then removed it from pan and followed the directions as written, adding the chicken back in step 2.

Tasty Tender Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
A good way to prepare tenderloin if you don't feel like grilling. I served this with Orzo & Rice side dish and got rave reviews. Even my picky husband asked for more!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
We liked this one. The cheese was an interesting change from my normal recipe. I used leftover sauce from the Tasty Tender Pork Tenderloin recipe (on this site) in place of the ketchup sauce here. Decent subsitute.

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
We loved this one! I've finally found a use for that tri-color orzo sitting in my pantry. I followed other reviewers advice and used 1/2 chix broth & 1/2 bouillon, added sauteed onions & garlic. A nice change from ordinary rice.
