    Crockpot Easiest Pork Chops


     4 pork chops, well trimmed
     1 envelope onion soup mix ( I use Myo )
     10 oz. can ready to serve chicken broth

    You can brown the pork chops if you wish in a nonstick skillet 3-4 minutes on each side. Place pork chops in 3-1/2-4 quart crockpot. In medium bowl, combine soup mix and chicken broth and stir until blended. Pour this mixture over the pork chops. Cover crockpot and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours.

    Wonderful thread. I'm buying a second 3.5-quart crockpot for Thanksgiving and Christmas use. It will pay for itself.

    CURRIED CHICKEN

    1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 medium potatoes, cubed
    1 medium apple, chopped
    2 Tbsp. curry powder
    2 can (14-1/2 oz.) chicken broth
    2 cups frozen peas, thawed
    I add some  raisins(optional)
    2 cups MINUTE White Rice, uncooked

    Placechicken in slow cooker; top with onion. ADD potatoes, apple, curry powder and broth; cover with lid. Cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours (or on HIGH for 5 hours). STIR in peas and rice * Cover and cook an additional 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
    * I found that adding uncooked rice absorbed all the liquid and left the whole dish very dry, I now cook the rice separately and stir through just before serving which works very well

    Re: crockpot recipes

    Crockpot Barbecued Beef  

     1/2 cups ketchup
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar OR cider vinegar
    2 tblsp Dijon mustard
    1 tblsp Worcesterhire sauce
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    boneless roast, about 4 pounds or so

    Combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Dijon mustard, Worcesterhire sauce, and liquid smoke in a bowl. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place roast in slow cooker; pour mixture over the roast. Cover and cook on low for about 8 to 10 hours, OR until done. Remove roast from slow cooker and shred with a fork; return to slow cooker, stir, and continue cooking for about 1 hour longer. Serve on hamburger buns.

    When I make this in the cooler months, I serve it as a regular roast with mashed potatoes, gravy, and veggie. In the warmer months, you can shred it like the recipe says, and serve it on hamburger buns. Another thing, with my cooker, I have never needed to cook it as long as the recipe states and the meat was thoroughly cooked.
