Easy Crock Pot Recipes

Easy Crock Pot Recipes
By Diane Watkins

Crock pot meals are convenient on those busy work nights. Its nice to come home to the tantalizing smell of a well cooked meal waiting for you. The challenge is to find those recipes that are not only quick and convenient, but tasty as well. Here I offer two recipes that are tasty and easy - Beef Burgundy and Country-Style Ribs with Sauerkraut.

This is my version of Crock Pot Beef Burgundy. It is quick to prepare in the morning, especially if you opt to skip the browning process (I usually do.) You can also cook this, well covered, for 2 hours in a 350 degree oven. The cooking time on the Beef Burgundy is 3-6 hours, but the longer you cook it on low, the more tender it will be. I don't usually worry about the time, I put it in before I leave for work and eat whenever the wonderful smells are too much for my willpower.

Beef Burgundy in the Crock Pot

2 pounds Beef Cubes (round steak, sirloin tip, or roast)

1 can golden mushroom soup

1 package dry onion soup mix

1 cup burgundy wine

OPTIONAL, but does add good flavor: Brown the beef cubes in a little oil.
Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Stir to combine. Cover with lid.
Cook in crock pot for 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
Serve over hot noodles or rice.
Country-Style Ribs and Sauerkraut 1 bag sauerkraut ; rinsed, drained 1 onion

1 red-skinned apple

2 - 3 pounds country style pork ribs

1 cup beer

1. Put sauerkraut in bottom of crock pot. Add diced onion and chopped apple. Do not need to peel apple. Stir and even the top.

2. Layer country ribs on top of kraut mixture. Pour beer over all. Cover and cook on LOW from 8 to 10 hours.

This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.

3 Easy Baked Bean Recipes
By Kara Kelso

The following baked bean recipes may all have very different ingredients, but they have one main thing in common - they are all cooked in the crockpot! These recipes can either be used as side dishes, or part of a main meal. Be sure to see more crockpot recipes at our website below.

1 pound dried small white beans -- rinsed
4 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 onion -- chopped
1/4 pound salt pork -- cut into 1" cubes
1 tablespoon dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
In slow-cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on LOW 13 to 14 hours, stirring occasionally, if possible.

1 lb ground beef
3/4 lb bacon fried and diced
1 onion lg chopped and browned
1 lge can pork and beans
1 16 oz kidney beans canned
1 16 oz buttered lima beans canned
1 cup catsup
3 Tbsp white vinegar
1/4 cup liquid smoke
1 tsp salt
dash pepper
Put all ingredients. in crock pot cook 4-6 hrs on low.

2 cans canellini beans
2 cans black beans
2 cans red kidney beans
1 can chick peas
2 diced onions
2 tablespoons mustard (from the fridge - the wet kind)
1 cup molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup maple syrup

Rinse and drain beans and set aside. On bottom of crockpot place diced onions, then dump on beans (don't mix just dump 'em all on). Then drizzle on all other ingredients. Mustard stays lumpy - it's ok. If you wish to add bacon - pre cook 1 lb. crumble and put over top of entire mixture. DON'T STIR. It will look dry for awhile. Crock Pot on High for 6-8 hours stirring once about 3/4 of the way through. Serve.
