What's your favorite crock pot (slow cooker) recipe?

I'm so excited about my new crockpot! What should I cook first? I'm adventurous, but not talented, in the kitchen...

    All these people and the chili answer...personally I think chill stays to soupy for my tastes when cooked in a crock pot(guess I am a chili purest)

    Here is one of my standbys that always makes people go Oh My God(and inspires drooling sometimes as well!)

    1)Take a Big old Chuck Roast(tough and tasty...prefect for LONG SLOW cooking).....brown really quick on stove....

    2)meanwhile....cut up 2 onions(any kind)into 8ths....toss into crock pot.....also toss about have the cloves from a head of garlic(no need to cut ..just pull of the dried skin)

    3) toss in the Chuck Roast

    4)...pour in enough beer( i prefer Guiness or a Strong IPA) to almost cover the roast

    Cook that sucker on high until it falls apart(usually about 8-10 hours)

    you can serve it as pot roast or shred it and use it for BBQ beef sandwiches(just pour BBQ over it on the bread/buns)


    I think I am going to go get a roast right now!

    Good luck and good eats!

    Congratulations!! I love my crock pot and use it a few times a week!! My family's favorite recipe is:

    Take about 7 pounds, (2 pkg's) of country style pork ribs. In your crock pot mix 2 cans of chicken broth with 1/2 cup of your favorite barbeque sauce. Put the ribs in the mixture and set on low for about 6-7 hours until the ribs fall off the bone. Take the ribs out and take the bones out and fat off and pour out the mixture in the crock pot. Put the ribs into the empty crock pot and generously cover the meat with your favorite bbq sauce, (Budweiser has a great one!!) and let that sit on low for another hour while you make potatos or whatever. Then just spoon out. It's delicious and super easy!! Good luck!

    This is EXTREMELY simple to need: 1 chuck roast of choice, 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope of onion soup mix. Put your roast in the pot set on low...spread the mushroom soup over the roast and sprinkle the onion soup mix over that. Let it go all day. You can serve this with anything. The best part is that the juices from the meat mixed with the soup and soup mix makes a verrrry yummy gravy.

    i am a newby crocker and i love it. i asked the butcher why my pot roast didn't have that umpf. she said to cover the meat in flour first, (for the gravy),some water, salt, pepper, garlic cloves, onion, then whatever veggies. baby carrots work well and red potatoes. this is my favorite dish! also, jewel(grocery store) often has pot roast on sale for buy one- get one free. good luck!
