one favorite: stroganoff, 3 pounds stew meat, 1 package lipton onion soup mix, 1 can cream of mushroom soup. 1 pint of sour cream. cook low 6-7 hours. serve over rice, pasta or potatoes.

Can't recall it exactly, but another one we like is chicken and dumplings. chicken and soup go in with a can of refridgerator biscuits cut up.

Go to any grocery store and you will find seasoning packets specifically for crock pots. The pulled pork one is great. Also if you like corned beef, simply put one in like you would normally cook it on the stove and 5-6 hours later you only need to cook some cabbage to go along with it.

Hi! Being new to the forums, I wanted to make sure I contribute one my favorite recipes when camping.

Italian Beef

3 pounds beef chuck roast
3 (1 ounce) packages dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 cup water
1 (16 ounce) jar pepperoncini peppers
8 hamburger buns, split (I usually use the hoagie rolls)

1.Place the roast into a slow cooker, and season with Italian dressing mix. Pour in the water. Cover, and cook on High for 6 to 7 hours. During the last hour, shred the meat with two forks - if it does not shred easily, cook longer. Add the peppers, and as much of the juice as you like for additional flavor. Serve on buns.

I also usually top with provolone cheese, although I'm sure any cheese would work.

Go about your day and check periodically to make sure it isn't getting dried out.

Here is a good one we have used:

1 large package of frozen hash brown potatoes
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 -16 oz container sour cream
Ĺ cup chopped onion
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided into 1 cup & 1 cup
1 tsp salt
Ĺ tsp pepper
Ĺ tsp garlic powder
Spray the inside of crock pot with nonstick cooking spray. Mix together hash browns, both cans of soup, sour cream, onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder AND 1 cup of cheese in the crock pot.
Cover & cook on high setting for 3-4 hours or low setting for 6-8 hours. During the last hour of cooking, top the potatoes with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese. Cover and allow potatoes to finish cooking.
Optional items:
-cream of potato or mushroom in place of the cream of celery soup.
-add pieces of ham, cubed, to make more of a main dish.
- use Mexican or Swiss cheese instead of shredded cheddar.

Yummy french dips

1 London Broil, small brisket, or a chuck roast
2 onions sliced
2 cans of Campbell's Soup "Beefy Mushroom"
2 or 3 teaspoons of minced garlic
1 package onion soup mix
1 cup of strong coffee (optional but it adds great flavor for the Au Jus)

Put the above in a crockpot or in a foil pan covered tightly with foil and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.

When done shred the meat with 2 forks, then toast sub rolls, french rolls, or sourdough, with provolone cheese, and mayo. Pile on the meat, onions and then use the juice for your "DIP"

Way easy and everyone loves them......

Here's one I made on our last trip:

Beef & Chili Beans

3 lb stew meat cut into 1" cubes
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion chopped
2 10oz cans of diced tomatoes with chili peppers (undrained)
1 16oz can of ranch style beans
1 15oz can whole kernel corn (drained)

Put beef & spices in crock pot & toss to coat. Top with onions, tomatoes, beans & corn. Cover & cook on low 6-8 hrs till meat is tender. Makes 6-8 servings.

*Next time, I may saute the onion first.

We topped with sour cream, shredded cheese & crunched up tostitos. If you thicken up the soup part, I think this would be excellent in a taco shell or wrap. It's pretty spicy but if you like milder, you can substitue one can of diced tomatoes and cut back on the spices some or spice it up more with a can of diced jalapenas. Some of the ones I fed used hot sauce in theirs.

I got the recipe from Taste of Home's "Summer Slow Cooker Meals". There are several that look yummy in the issue.

one i liked to use was a roast, can of mushroom soup and 1beef bullion cube dissolved in 1 cup of water.
that night, i would fix a pot of rice and eat.

the boulion cube i always used because it was what was suggested before i started using cream of mushroom soup. i don't think the bullion is detectable thru the soup. the soup is concentrated and i don't use any additional water other than that with the cube. i believe if i didn't use the cube, i would still put the cup of water in. my crock pot cooks from the sides.
