    To All "Crock Jocks"

    I have fond memories of crock food from my childhood...I used one when I was single and made some good stew-like stuff...

    Is a crock any good? Are there things you cook in it that turn out better than conventional cooking? (I remember stuffed peppers being good).

    What do you crock? are you a "Crock Jock"?

    I make my green chili in mine.

    cut pork roast up into chunks. Flour salt, pepper on chunks. Fry in grease.

    Put chunks in cooker, add garlic, onion, and a couple of pkgs of Hatch Chilis from wallyworrld. Pour in some chicken bullion to cover. Cook all day, then mash it with your tater masher. Season with salt, cumin, etc till it tastes good.

    Yankee pot roast. It is always a big hit around here in Vermont for some reason.

    I always cover the meat with 2 table spoons of either lemon joice or vinegar.
    Diffinately potatoes and onions.

    Also things like turnips, carrots, mushrooms. beets, parsnips can be used.

    Brown some hamburger, about 1-2 pounds.
    Cook 1 handful of noodles, the little 1/4 circle tube kind.
    Add that to..
    1 can wolf-brand chili
    1 can ranch-style pinto beans
    1 can corn and 1 can veg-all, drain the water out before adding them
    1 can of tomato sauce

    That is 'goo-losh', . That is supposed to be a Chekoslyvakian recipie converted to what you have in the local store here.

    I tend to spice mine up a tad. Diced onions and maybe garlic cooked when I do the meat, I add it as I am finishing the meat. Meat seasoned with black-pepper and worchestershire sauce, little curry. I do the seasoning in the meat cooking process.

    Serve as is, but I dress mine up with tobasco-sauce and more black-pepper. Really good stuff, something in-between chili and stew.

    I use my crockpot at least 2 or 3 times a week. Today is chicken for tacos tonight and on Thursday I'm going to make the apricot pork roast that I posted a few weeks ago.

    I have a Word document that is a 112 pages of crockpot recipes, including nutritional info. I got it from a message board when I was doing Weight Watchers and although some of the recipes are trimmed down to be lower-fat, most of them are pretty awesome. You can tell from reading the recipe if it's going to be gag-worthy or not. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to post the .doc somewhere for download.

    Here you go:

    I can't vouch for all of the recipes, I've only tried a couple dozen of them! And I have no clue who the original author/compiler is . . . she put no information in the doc and it's been circling the message boards forever.
