Heart Favorite Crock Pot Recipes

Many of us struggle to get healthy meals.

I have found it easier to use my Crock Pot, especially when I want hot meals in colder weather.

I can put ingredients in the Crock Pot in the morning before I get too tired. Dinner is ready by dinner time!

I make a few different dishes this way, yet w/o using recipes.
I need to find new recipes.

Please do share your favorites and I will do the same.
Please also share links to your faves if you have them and do not want to type out the recipes.

I hope someone finds this helpful, too.

Love to All!


WC

I had started this thread early this morning for everyone's use. I need some time to get mine together. It's a very busy day.

Here's one I adapted

Slow Cooker Smoky Boston Baked Beans

500g dried haricot/pinto/black eyed beans
2 onions
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
½ tbsp black treacle or molasses
400g passata or chopped canned tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tbsp avocado oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsp chipotle paste
I piece of smoked ham hock/bacon shoulder

small handful flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

serve with french bread

Method
1) Soak beans
2) Mix some oil, treacle, chipotle, mustard and paprika together and rub into the pork - leave to marinade.
3) Fry onions with garlic in avocado oil
4) Add to slow cooker.
5) Nestle the pork into the beans. Cook overnight
6) Add tomato when beans are soft enough (do not add tomato too soon or they stay hard)

Another - chocolate chilli from Jamie Oliver (this is yummy)

Ingredients
1 onion, sliced
1 red pepper, deseeded and thickly sliced
small bunch fresh coriander, stalks finely chopped
1 tbsp sunflower oil
500g/1lb 2oz beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat and cut into matchbox-size pieces
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 fat garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp hot chilli powder
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp tomato purée
400g/14oz can chopped tomatoes
300ml/½ pint hot beef stock
2 x 400g/14oz can red kidney beans in water, rinsed and drained
1 cube good quality dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa solids
Method
1. Place the onion, red pepper and coriander stalks into a slow cooker. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, season the beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then fry in two batches until golden-brown, transferring to the slow cooker when ready.
2. Add the garlic, spices and oregano to the pan juices and fry for one minute until fragrant. Stir in the tomato purée, tomatoes and stock then bring to a boil. Pour the hot sauce over the meat, then cover with a lid and cook on low for seven hours. Stir in the beans, then cook for an hour more until the meat is very tender.
3. Break the chocolate into the sauce, let it melt, then stir it in. Season the sauce to your taste, then scatter with the coriander leaves and serve.

I think I might make this this weekend

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
Serves 4 to 6
1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-inch piece whole ginger, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 to 2 tablespoons garam masala
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
3/4 cup heavy cream or coconut milk
Fresh coriander, chopped
2 cups cooked rice, to serve

Cut the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces and transfer them to a 3-quart or larger slow cooker. Stir in the onion, garlic, ginger, tomato paste, 1 tablespoon of garam masala, paprika, and kosher salt until the chicken is evenly covered with spices. Stir in the diced tomatoes with their juices.
→ If you have the time: Marinate the chicken in 1/2 cup yogurt for up to 6 hours. Shake to remove excess yogurt before transferring to the slow cooker.
→ If you have the time: Sauté the onions and garlic in a little olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet until softened, then stir in the ginger, tomato paste, and spices until fragrant. Transfer to the slow cooker with the chicken and diced tomatoes. This will give your tikka masala more depth of flavor.
Cover the slow cooker and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Fifteen minutes before the end of cooking, stir in the heavy cream. If you prefer a thicker sauce, leave the slow cooker uncovered for the last 15 minutes. Taste and add more garam masala or salt to taste.
Serve over rice with fresh coriander sprinkled over the top of each serving.

Wow, Carmina that chicken curry sounds so delicious that I don't have a crock pot and I'm still going to try it. Thank you. I've been looking at how to make the best sauce to go with chicken. I rarely eat meat but often cook chicken for visitors and eat a small morsel. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS Because I don't eat meat often, buying chicken has been hit or miss for me. I try not to buy the frozen stuff because I'm not confident about defrosting it, and if you don't defrost it perfectly it's horribly tough.
Any chicken buying tips from experienced hands would be welcome!
