Italian Pot Roast ~ Crock Pot Recipe

You can prep a batch in no time, then just set the slow cooker and forget about it. By dinner time, you will be enjoying a hearty pot roast that warms you right up. Take a look at how to get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 cup of baby carrots, whole
  • 2 cups of small red potatoes, cut into fourths
  • 4 pounds of boneless chuck roast
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 envelope of dry onion soup mix
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon each of dried basil and oregano
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of Pastina baby pasta
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions:
1. Pour the water and beef broth into the slow cooker. Mix in the dry onion soup mix and tomato sauce. Stir well.
2. Place the vegetables (onion, potatoes, carrots) in the bottom of the cooker. Distribute them into an even layer.
3. Place the roast on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle your pepper, oregano, and basil onto the meat.
4. Set the slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours. As it cooks, you can use a ladle to spoon the liquid of the roast and season it further. This will also keep it moist.
5. With a half hour left to cook, you can add a cup of pastina directly to the slow cooker. If you are worried about over/under cooking the pasta, you can cook it on the side in a sauce pan.

Serve your Italian Pot Roast over the pastina. If you wish you can add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese for an extra kick.

Corn On The Cob Cooked In The Slow Cooker ~ Slides right out no need to shuck the corn before you cook it.

Two years ago I told you all how to  Shuck and Cook Corn Quickly in 3 easy steps, in this method you do not have to peel or shuck your corn and it is ready to eat in 3 minutes.  But this method does involve a microwave  and you can only cook one at a time.   That is what lead me to the idea to try the same method, but in the slow cooker or crock-pot.  Honestly I had no idea if it would even work. I searched pinterest  to see if there were any ideas or how to posts… NOPE. I could not find anything about cooking corn STILL in the husk in a slow cooker.Corn On The Cob slow cooker crock pot recipe , No need to shuck the corn you can cook it with the husk still on, Corn on the cob without husking the corn, summer bbq recipes

So I decided to try a little experiment, and see if I could shuck corn in a slow cooker.  I won’t leave you in suspense too long it turned out amazing and was super easy.  The corn was plump and juicy and evenly cooked, and slid right out of the husk with no silk left. Here is how I shucked corn in a slow cooker or crock pot.
Corn On The Cob slow cooker crock pot recipe , No need to shuck the corn you can cook it with the husk still on, Corn on the cob without husking the corn, summer bbq recipes

Step one is to place the corn on a cutting board and use a sharp butchers knife to chop the bottom end off. You will want to cut the end off that does NOT have the silk on it which is the fat end. You will need a good sturdy knife to get thru the cob and the husk all at once. Watch your fingers and be careful.  Place the corn cob with the husks still on, inside a large slow cooker or crock pot.  I cooked 4 of them on high for 3 1/2 hours and they were perfectly cooked.   The crock pot could have fit several more inside. If I was to cook 6+ I would increase the cooking time to 4 hours on high.  If you wanted a low and slow option you could do low temp for 6-8 hours instead.

When you are ready to eat them, pick up the corn with a towel or dish cloth.  Watch out the corn will be HOT.  Hold the top of the corn (part with the silk or smaller pointy end) firmly with the towel and squeeze downward.  Give it a little shake, as you squeeze the corn will slide right out of the husk and all the silk will stay inside the husk.  You are left with a perfectly cooked cob of corn, ready to cover with butter and eat.

One of the ends of my corn was right up against the edge of the slow cooker. It did turn a little brown, this could have been avoided by wrapping the end with a little bit of foil. Not needed but an option if you want all your corn to  be perfectly golden.Corn On The Cob slow cooker crock pot recipe , No need to shuck the corn you can cook it with the husk still on, Corn on the cob without husking the corn, summer bbq recipes

Chicken Fajitas Crock Pot Recipe ~ Quick and Easy Dinner Idea

This recipe is full of flavor and easy to make, perfect for a family that wants a great meal without lots of prep time.

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 -2 lbs chicken breast (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup salsa ( I used Pace)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Fajita Dry Seasoning Packet (1.4 oz)
  • 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 large onion (sliced)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Chicken Fajitas Crock Pot Recipe, Quick ans easy way to get dinner on the table without lots of prep, Crock Pot chicken fajitas a must try recipe #CrockPotRecipe #SlowCookerRecipe #Fajitas

Cooking tip: You can add all the ingredients into the crock from from the beginning and cook them all for the 3-4 hours cooking time…. But my family prefers the onions and bell peppers to still have a little firmness.  So we like the recipe best adding them at the end.

In a crock pot add chicken breast, water, pour salsa over the top then sprinkle fajita seasoning on top.  Cover with a lid, cook on high for 2 hours if chicken is fresh, or cook on high for 3 hours if chicken is frozen. Once chicken is cooked take out of the crock pot and set aside so you can shred it.

Add bell pepper and onion (sliced) to the bottom of the crock pot. Shred the cooked chicken with a fork and put it back into the crock pot, on top of the vegetables.  Cover with a lid and cook an additional 30- 60 mins (depends on how well you like your veggies cooked).  Stir them together, once or twice during cooking process  to coat the chicken with the sauce that forms in the bottom of the crock pot.   Serve on flour or corn tortillas with cheese and sour cream.  Other topping options lettuce and tomatoes.
