Mine has a random assortment of things...

500g diced pork, 2 leeks, about 2 cups chopped carrot, 1 cup chopped celery and a bag of chopped round green beans plus a sachet of Continental Teriyaki sauce with ginger and honey, a dessertspoon of crushed garlic, 3/4 cup of beef stock and 1 TB honey.

I have no idea what it's going to taste like but it smells yummy!

What's in yours?

My pork casseroley thingy was yummy, kind of like a casserole with stirfry flavours. Willie took one look at it and said "I don't like the look of that" but then he ate the leftovers tonight by choice so it can;t have been too bad!

Tomorrow is beef casserole: beef, parsnip, swede, carrot, spud and celery with beef stock and whatever else I can find to flavour it with.

we had roast pork tonight, but I made some YUMMY pork belly with chinese flavours the other night. you could cut it with a pair of chopsticks - so tender.
tomorrow might do a stew. I put it in a pot and make a scone mix - put that on the top and bake for the last 15minutes. Stew with bread- what more can a gissy boy want?

It was yummy! The kids loved it too, I think coz the coconut milk was a bit sweet. We ended up having it with pasta instead of rice on Maya's orders.

Nothing in the crockpot today tho, feeling blah and lazy. Will do some form of quick easy mince.

Mostly keen on using cheaper kinds of meat in the crockpot. Hate things with bones in (e.g. drumsticks, chops) for some reason. Am trying to eat red meat everyday at the mo cos of low iron (and I keep forgetting to get prescription for iron tabs when I'm at the MW!)

I do from time to time. I just put the whole chicken in and turn it on, no sauces or anything. It is usually so tender it falls apart when I try to take it out (yum) but lacks a bit of colour.

Funny you should ask, because I don't use it much. However today I popped some rice pudding in. I came home and wondered what the yummy smell was, and thought it must have been leftovers from lunch smelling better than I remembered. It took me about 1/2 hour to realise it was the crockpot.

Deez, I'm assuming it's too late for the gravy now but normally I just mix in the gravy powder to the juices, top it up with water and heat it up until it thickens (either microwave or pot).

Another option is to leave the juices settle in a jug until the fat separates and then pour off the fat. Then continue as above.


Posted By: Maya
Date Posted: 16áJuneá2008 at 11:20am
That's how my mum does it too Tishy, if she's done the roast in the oven she just whacks the roasting pan with the juices straight on the stovetop with a bit of Bisto. In our house tho gravy comes from a Continental "just add water" sachet

Moroccan lamb in ours today.

I tried something new (for me) in our crockpot last night and it was YUM.
I had a bolar roast to cook so did a quick search on the internet for ways to cook it. I had no idea you could cook it in a crock pot.....here was the recipie (if you can call it that).

Put the roast in a oven bag.
Instead of putting flour in the bag, use a packet of onion soup mix
seal the bag....dont pierce it
cook on high for 2 hours.

I had to pierce the bag after a while cos it was lifting the lid on the cooker.
Also, I put it on low for about another hour.
It was delicious...and I didn't have to clean the pot cos the bag kept everything clean.

Oh and the gravy was really yummy too.

Posted By: Maya

Depends what cut of chicken, I'd do breasts or pieces for about 5 hours on low but I've never done a whole chook.

Perfect crockpot weather today, rainy and windy and wild, have put the corned beef in with some malt vinegar and brown sugar, yummy!

Maggi cook in the pot 'Beef Bourguignon' and then i added bisto too, so there was lots of yummy gravy stuff. It makes it really nice. DH said it was the best stew made ever in the history of mankind (bless him).

Pork Chops with Peaches (thanks Alison Holst!)
Cook on Low for 8-9 hours

Ingredients:

2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp olive or canola oil
6 large pork chops (about 1.2kg)
1 medium onion
1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp wine vinegar
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1 x 400g can sliced peaches in juice
1 tbsp cornflour

Coat your slowcooker with non-stick spray and turn it on to HIGH to preheat.

Combine the flour, paprika and pepper in a shallow bowl. Heat the oil in a pan then dip each sicde of the chops in the flour mixture, shake off any excess, then fry for 2-3 mins a side, or until lightly browned.

Lift the chops from the pan and place them in the slowcooker (overlapping as necessary). Add the diced onion to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onion begins to soften, then sprinkle over the pork chops in the cooker.

Combine the remaining ingredients (except cornflour) in a bowl and stir gently to combine, then pour this evenly over the pork and onions in the slowcooker.

Place the lid on the slowcooker, turn down to LOW and cook for 8-9 hours. About an hour before serving mix the cornflour with a tablespoon of cold water to make a paste. Stir this into the sauce and gently turn the chops.

Voila! Very very yummy.

In the last week I have done 2 chicken curries in the crockpot, and corned beef 2 nights ago. Tomorrow I am doing a bacon hock soup.

I'll share a lil secret that I have recently stumbled across. I decided to do google searches for new / updated crock pot recipes and found this site to be great... 3,484 crock pot recipes (you may need to convert to metric from imperial...) and they rule.

You can go http://www.recipezaar.com/recipes.php?s_type=%2Frecipes.php&q=crock+pot&Search=Search - here to look.

Enjoy!!

I am trying to find a good recipe for a soup that uses a bacon hock. I also have chicken stock on hand and kings soup mix. I have loads of lentils (split peas and red lentils).

Any ideas how to make an awesome crockpot soup with the above ingredients, plus seasonings?

Sure here's a link to two recipes that we have used, when not using the Crockpot

http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/993/beef+olives - Beef Olives - Our fave version

http://www.foodinaminute.co.nz/Recipes/recipe_default.aspx?recipeid=642 - This one has mushrooms can be done in crockpot

This is from Joan Bishops NZ Crockpot and Slow Cooker Cookbook:

700g Topside steak cut into thin slices
OR just use schnitzel

Crockpot
Low 8-10hrs
High 4-5hrs

Slow Cooker
Low 7-8hrs
High 3.5hrs - 4 hrs.

Stuffing
1 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs
100g mushrooms, finely chopped
2 TBsp melted butter
1/2 small onion finely chopped
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried
2 TBsp fresh parsley, chopped
pepper
milk, a little to mix

Sauce
1 pkt Oxtail Soup
3 TBsp sherry
1/2 cup water

1. Combine the breadcrumbs, mushrooms, butter, onion, thyme, parsley and pepper. Mix lightly until just combined, adding a little milk if necessary.

2. Divide the mixture evenly between each piece of steak and roll up, securing with toothpicks. Fold or tuck the edges over at each end and secure again with toothpicks.

3. Place the beef olives in the cooker.

4. Mix the oxtail soup and sherry to a smooth paste. Add the water and stir to combine. Spoon over the meat in the cooker.

5. Cover with lid and cook following the times and settings above.

6. Remove toothpicks before serving.

Hi Tara
I saw you wanted a recipe for bacon hock soup - here's mine! I have a Russell Hobbs 6 litre slow cooker so you might have to adjust the quantities to suit your sized one.

Bacon & Vege Soup

Ingredients:
1 bacon hock
1 packet Kings Hearty Vege soup mix (but you could probably use any)
about 9-10 cups hot water
Veges! - i usually use potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, swede, leeks, capsicum, onion or spring onions etc.

Method:
Place bacon hock into bottom of slow cooker. Add soup mix and 9-10 cups hot water (adjust to size of cooker). Stir. Cut up veges (either by hand or food processor) into little pieces (or bigger if you like chunky soup) and place in cooker. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or until the meat falls off the bone (or on high for about 3-4 hours i think). Take the meat out and cut up into pieces and return to the cooker to heat through again. Eat & enjoy!

I find there is enough lentils etc in the soup mix although you could easily add more if you wanted. This recipe makes a lot of soup - enough for 2 dinners and lunches during the week :) and is so delicious!

Thanks .Mel will give that a go - looks yummy!

I made a chocolate self saucing pudding on Saturday night which was really good - had never done it before and was a bit dubious.

We have some home killed meat and pulled out what was marked corned beef but also had bolar roast on the packaging. Took a gamble and cooked it like corned beef. Turned out it was pot roast but tasted OK. Unfortunately was hanging out for corned beef all day!

it was really tasty! but i think it got a bit overcooked because it was really stringy....good for todays sandwiches though! i cooked it in an oven bag (what my partners mum told me to do) so next time i think i will leave the bag out! oh and i didnt take the crackling off first which i must do next time because it got too wet and didnt crackle :(
