I have a 6,7, and 8 quart crock pots. I like beef roast with 64oz regular V8 juice.
Add seasonings that you want and as many vegtables as you want. I use
rutabaga, turnips, carrots, celery, onions, garlic.  Whatever vegtables that
you like.  I use the 8 quart crockpot for the 64 9z V8 juice.  I also love chili,
carnitas, chicken.

Carol, I "picked" up a recipe for Pork Carnitas at a Mexican Restaurant located in Dalton Georgia years ago.  It was so funny my husband and I went into this place, there were about 3 cars in the parking lot and the owner was meeting people at the door.  He apologized for any delay in service.  We looked around and there were maybe 6 people in the restaurant,including the two of us.  I ordered Carnitas for the first time.  They were out of this world good. 
By the way the owner explained that he goes to the Tampico region of Mexico and hires people for the restaurant.  The last group he hired were all hired away by the carpet mills.
I was asking the owner how the carnitas were made and he told me how he does them.
The pork is seasoned and it is browned and sort of simmers in the fat that is rendered out along with onions, peppers and citrus fruit.  When it is tender they pour cold milk over it to solidify the fat.  Once the fat is removed the pork is browned again with some more onions and peppers.

Nikki, I have never heard of the cold milk thing!! I am going to have to try this! Thanks!! There are so
many regions and states in Mexico and so many different ways of doing things. We have 1 good
restaurant that has awesome carnitas, Marietta's in El Cajon, CA. We don't go to Mexico anymore,
because of all the violence. I joined Tops last July so I have really been watching the fat in my diet. We
weigh in every Wed and it is a great support group. I have a husband who is thin and can eat anything
without gaining, so have no support from him. We eats all the time and carnitas is his favorite food.

Chuck roast - First put peeled carrots 1 inch in bottom of crock pot, peel and chop one onion, brown chuck roast on all sides, add salt and pepper to roast to taste.  Add one can beef broth and one can of cream of mushroom soup, cook on low around 7 to 8 hours, until meat just falls apart.  This is delicious and my families favorite recipe.  I add baked potatoes from  the microwave and this is a easy dinner, especially if you have been out shoveling snow all day, you won't have to worry about what's for dinner.

Nancy...


I am so glad you are trying it out!  You will enjoy it!  I have another excellant recipe for the crock pot using a roast and in fact, I save the broth for using in my soup and the shredded roast beef that is left over, I make hot roast beef sandwiches.  So you get 3 meals from this crock pot recipe.  If you want it, let me know and I will post it!  I know I posted it  in another forum but I can't remember where!

Gale, Irma, Verlee & those who are considering purchasing, DETAILS are important.  I have an old brown, 3 qt, crock pot, but I, also, purchased a 5 qt Rival.  The thing I like the most is when you are  gone and it's finished cooking it AUTOMATICALLY goes into warm mode and does not OVER cook.  There are other things to consider and I recommend www.ConsumerReports.org for basic ideas before you buy.  Hamilton Beach has a lid that locks, easy to take with you, but I'm not sure of what other specifics it has.  I know that Macy's had one that had RECIPES included in a scroll that was really sweet, but the price was up there too!  You know, you get what you pay for. Look at Amazon.com and compare at BedBath&Beyond. You can use the 20% off coupon and sometimes comes out cheaper,  if Amazon will charge a shipping fee.  Sometimes it's free, depending on purchase price.  All in all They are great to own.
I will go through some of my recipes and post them soon.

Nancy G,  If it smells so good, you might have to do some taste testing.
You have to know that it will be good for your friend. Just make sure you
have enough left over for dinner. I totaling love my crock pots!!!!! You
will love your crock pot and soon you will be puting everything in it,
but the kitchen sink.  Enjoy!!!!

Carol ... I couldn't wait.  I gobbled my BBQ dinner just a minute ago .... Oh, it's good.
Tonight I'll freeze a couple servings and take them to my friend Sunday morning - I see her at church.
She's very careful about salt so I left that out of the recipe.... and by accident I didn't have any Lipton Onion soup
so I skipped that too.
This is so very good that I plan on making it again with a pork
roast.

I put stew beef in first with canned tomatoes - your choice - whole or cut up.  I like diced the best.  I do that the night before and let it cook all night.  Then in the morning before I leave for work, I dump in some more cans of vegetables.  Again your choice.  I like corn especially, so I put white AND yellow corn in.  Then I add green beans.  But anything is fair game.  Leftovers, or whatever I have handy in the cabinet.  I put in a few spices, but not many.  And when I get home from work it is all ready to eat.  Some people go to a lot of trouble getting fresh vegetables & peeling,cleaning, chopping them,etc.  But I am just as happy with the canned versions.

I don't worry any more about a crock pot being on all day than I would a clock.  It is low heat and they are not likely to tip over.  No matter how much the cat wants to do so. Smile
