For your crock pot.

Kolbi wondered, in the comments, what on earth to put in those handy dandy crock pots.

I am a simple girl and my family likes simple food.
So here are my simple crock pot recipes.

Some of these are repeats, sorry, I am going to look into category archiving this week.

Chicken Noodle Soup

4 frozen boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
carrots, big ole handful
celery, one or two ribs
onion, 1/2 a medium
2-4 chicken bullion cubes

Put all of the above in the crock pot in the morning. Cook about 8 hrs. Shred the chicken. Toss in some egg noodles. Cook until the noodles are soft.
You may add or omit veggies as you like.

My husband doesn't like to eat soup so I take out one of the chicken breasts for him. He likes his soft, plain chicken.

Chicken with Soup

4 frozen Chicken Breasts
1 can of creamed soup (mushroom, celery, chicken)

You can stop right there if you want.

You can also add;

1/4 a cup of white wine
Swiss cheese
Pepperidge farm herb dressing sprinkled on top

Cook all day.

Shredded Pork

1 thawed pork roast
1/2 a cup water
A little salt and pepper

Cook all day!

One hour before serving shred the meat and pour in one or two bottles of your favorite barbecue sauce.
Serve on buns.

Italian Beef

1 thawed rump roast
1 package Good Seasons Zesty Italian Salad Dressing mix
1 bottle pepperoncinis
Water...1/2 way to the top of the meat

Cook all day. Shred the meat. Pull out little pepperoncini stems.
Serve on nice crusty French bread.


My sister made the Italian Beef for us at our little family reunion and it was so great. I think hers was better than I have been able to make it. She cooked hers in the oven...and that is the only difference I can think of...although she says that the peppercini's really differ in their spiciness. Anyway Sue's was the closest thing to the very best Italian Beef I have ever eaten...and that would be Carm's Italian Beef in Chicago.

Carm's Beef
1801 S. Wolf Rd - Hillside, IL
(708) 449-0125

Ya know the kind of place...where you need a napkin (or ten) for your fingers and face and a few for you nose....cause it is dripping?

This will be on the menu in heaven.

Hey...what else will be on that heavenly menu?
